  • hanks for the info., Leigh!

    You will love Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, and so will your little ones! Be sure to dine at Boma, which is right there at your resort, and is a great African buffet. If your little ones are picky eaters, there are kids' options at every Walt Disney World restaurant, too. Sanaa, right next door at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas-Kidani Village is one of our favorites, too.

    With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, you and your older children are entitled to 3 meals and 2 snacks per person per night of stay. Don't forget to book a late lunch instead of dinner, as this works well with little ones AND they are often available when dinners are all booked.
    I checked this afternoon and kid-friendly reservation times are available  at the following excellent locations during your stay:

    The Hollywood Brown Derby* (Disney's Hollywood Studios)
    Tony's Town Square (Magic Kingdom)
    Biergarten Restaurant (Epcot)
    Coral Reef Restaurant (Epcot)
    Chef de France (Epcot)
    Teppan Edo (Epcot)
    Tusker House (Animal Kingdom)
    Rainforest Cafe (Animal Kingdom)
    Raglan Road (Downtown Disney)
    Fulton's Crab House* (Downtown Disney)

    *=2 Table Service Entitlements, so you'll only have one additional meal allotment that day. (Eat a light breakfast / snack then do Quick Serve for the remaining meal.)

    My family and friends love each one of those restaurants, so I'm sure you will, too. Book ASAP. :-)

    Once you have those reservations, send me another question and we can plan each day based around your dining reservation;  there is still time to make this trip spectacular, I promise.
