    :hello1: and welcome to Secrets

    How about a character meal .... somewhere like Crystal Palace with Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet.

    Welcome to Secrets! :wave2:

    Congrats on your upcoming trip! How old are the kids? Character meals are so much fun--do they have a favorite set of characters?

    My kids have always loved the Whispering Canyon family-style dinner (at the Wilderness Lodge). On their first visit, they were 4 and 7 years old, respectively. In our house, we call it "the ketchup restaurant". Ask for ketchup during your meal and you'll find out why...:yes:
    Add wooden pony races and generally-entertaining servers to the mix (not to mention lots and lots of good eats), and it's a winner, even without costumed Disney characters at the meal.

    Can't wait to hear more about your plans!

    :wave: most of the restraunts cater for kids well with crayons and pictures to colour so its just a question of what sort of food you want really :)

    :wiggle: Hi and welcome

    Rainforest Cafe is always a big hit with children and there's the new T-Rex restaurant at Downtown Disney.

    Enjoy planning for your trip

    Restaurants with children at WDW are really a matter of choosing the atmosphere your family likes. Most WDW restaurants have the same selections on their childrens menus so where you dine isn't quite so different for children.

    Character meals are popular of course, but many children don't like characters and are frightened by them. Others get so excited they won't eat, so that is something to take into consideration!

    The only WDW restaurant that restricts children is Victoria and Albert's where the child needs to be 10 or older. The upstairs restaurant in France (World Showcase) does NOT have a childrens menu, so you don't see many children there.

    Beaches and Cream is very popular with families as it is a hamburger and ice cream place. There is a limited menu, and no ADRs. It's quite reasonably priced for WDW.

    All the food courts at the All Stars, Pop Century, Coronado Springs, Riverside, etc. are handy places to eat if your family likes a selection of food without having to pay for the cost of a buffet meal.

    If your family likes full service restaurants, the resort hotels all have nice selections. I would avoid California Grill (even though it is popular with the fireworks view) and the Wave. We were dreadfully disappointed with the food in both places.

    Boma is a fun buffet, if your family likes a bit of a different selection and Jiko the companion full service is really delicious.

    All in all, the restaurants are all family oriented, therefore child friendly. Select the atmosphere and pricing structure that most appeals to you!

    My suggestions, not knowing your kids ages but these have been hits with mine from the time they were little to now (11 & 16). For characters mine have always prefered Chef Mickey's & Cape May Cafe (at Beach Club) for breakfast. The Biergarten is a nice choice & fun for kids if you time it during the show. Sci Fi Dine In Theater is a place we hit everytime. The theming is fantastic but if your kids are tiny some of the stuff in the 'movie' might possibly scare them. Never did mine but you just don't know. T-Rex gets two big thumbs up from me & my family. And Rainforest Cafe' is a classic to us and we do it every time we are there.

    Good luck & have fun planning!
