    We are visiting with my parents in Jan. So far we have reservations at Coral Reef and Tusker House. We are having a hard time deciding on others and time is running out. Our kids are 8 (boy) and 4 (girl) plus my husband and my parents. Help!?!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel, Leanna!  What a fun question!  One of my favorite aspects of planning a Walt Disney World vacation is choosing dining locations! It looks as if you are off to a great start! I will give you several dining options in case you experience any difficulty in finding availability. Two of my favorite table-service restaurants are located in Disney's Polynesian Resort. My family of six which includes four children ranging between the ages of seven and fourteen love both 'Ohana and Kona Café. Rainforest Cafe and T-REX, A Prehistoric Family Adventure located in Downtown Disney both offer themed settings with life-size animatronic animals. Rainforest Cafe offers a second location at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. Whispering Canyon Café located in Disney's Wilderness Lodge serves hearty dishes in a rowdy, western-themed atmosphere. For an enchanting dining experience at Magic Kingdom Park, consider Be Our Guest Restaurant, which is a quick-service dining location at lunch and table-service restaurant at dinner. My family enjoyed a delightful French-inspired lunch two weeks ago and I can honestly say that my three young princes enjoyed the experience as much as my teenage princess!  I wasn't sure if you were dining at Tusker House Restaurant for a Character Dining Experience. If you are not, then you may want to consider booking a Character Dining Experience for your upcoming trip. Your children will love being greeted table side by several Disney Characters while enjoying a delicious meal. Our family favorites include Chef Mickey's featuring the "Fab 5" at Disney's Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast which features Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto at Disney's Polynesian Resort. I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back if you would like additional dining recommendations. Best wishes for a magical trip, Leanna!
    Bon Appétit,
