    Love the panel! I'm planning a trip (me, DH, DS6 & DD4) for Jan '11. Staying POTC @ CBR! I have all ADRs except one for a non-park ticket day. So far our only non park meals are Chef Mickey's and Captain's Grille. Any suggestions for our last ADR?

    Hi Laurie! I'm so glad you enjoy reading the Moms Panel -- we love helping you plan your Disney vacations!
     
    A non-park day is great idea -- there is so much to do outside of the parks at Disney World, and you'll have lots of time to explore the Caribbean Beach Resort. Downtown Disney is a great destination for fun outside of the parks. Stroll through the shops or take in a movie. Visit the indoor virtual theme park at DisneyQuest, ride Characters in Flight, or take the kids to Ridemakerz, the Lego Store, or the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
     
    One of my family's favorite restaurants outside of the theme parks is the Wolfgang Puck Cafe at Downtown Disney. We love the sushi, salads, and pizzas from the wood-fired ovens.  Another option that your children may really enjoy is the T-REX Cafe, which has life-size prehistoric animatronic creatures.
     
    If you're looking for a more upscale dining experience,the food at Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is delicious, and you can walk out on the African savanna after your meal to view the giraffes and other animals with night-vision goggles. (A more casual but equally tasty dining option at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is the dinner buffet at Boma.)
     
    Hope this helps! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
