    Carmen Asked

    Planning a trip in June...........what are the best restaurant choices for my 8 year old daughter ; it's our first Disney trip! Also, what attractions would you suggest I get fast passes to?

    Hello, Carmen! I'm so glad that you stopped by the Moms Panel with your dining question. Each of the theme parks offers unique flavors and dining options, and I'm happy to share some of my family's favorites.

    At Magic Kingdom Park, try Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe. This restaurant has a toppings bar, where you'll find an assortment of sandwich toppings to complete your meal. Sonny Eclipse provides entertainment in the main dining room, so try to find a table nearby. If your daughter is a fan of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, stop by Gaston's Tavern for some hearty snacks. The cinnamon rolls are gigantic, and LeFou's Brew is a refreshing treat. Want to dine in the Beast's enchanted castle? You could try to secure a last-minute reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    My family and I enjoy dining at La Cantina de San Angel at Epcot. The tacos are delicious, and it's so relaxing to sit by the water. I recommend exploring the World Showcase from Mexico so that by the time you reach France, you will be ready for a cool treat. Make sure to stop by L'Artisan des Glaces for a scoop or two (or dozen - there are 16 flavors, after all!)

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, check out Toy Story Pizza Planet and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant. Both of these locations offer playful atmospheres and tasty foods. Pizzafari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is also worth noting for the colorful dining rooms and quick bites.

    You also asked about FastPass+ attractions. Here are a few of my family's favorites:
    • Magic Kingdom Park: Anna and Elsa meet 'n' greet and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
    • Epcot: Soarin' and Test Track
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Midway Mania! and Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Kilimanjaro Safaris
    If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel. We'd love to hEAR from you, Carmen!
