I need help. We have to make our ADR's for our trip in August in 14 days and I have NOTHING planned so far. We've been so busy with the new baby, he was born 3 months early, and just getting back to "normal" that I haven't even thought about our trip (well I've thought about the trip but not planned anything just thinking how nice it would be to be there LOL)
There are new restaurants now, new menus, etc etc. I need help.
I know we want to revisit:
1900 Park Fare
And want to try:
We have 10 days, where should we go 3 kids aged 7, 5 & almost 1 yr by then WOW.
Rose Our little family Hook(DH), Tink(7) & Peter Pan(6), & Piglet 19months or 15 months, was 3 months premature.
I can't help you -other than to give my vote for Teppan Edo.
I just wanted to give virtual hugs from the mom of one preemie to another. Of course mine is now an annoying teenager who will be 14 in a few months. Hang in there!
Love the pic!
....well...1900 Park Fare is one of my "Tried & True" restaurants...and we ALWAYS get ADR's there for a character breakfast. It's the ONLY place that I've seen Peter Pan....and I never pass up the opportunity to get a hug from Pooh.
....Teppan Edo is also a "must do" every time we're at WDW. From 2004 (when it was called Teppanyaki) to the present...Teppan Edo never has failed to please us. In a few weeks our "180 day mark" will be here and I know my wife will be booking a dinner there. Kids really enjoy the "show"...and the cooks cater to them and their needs. We went there once with several families/friends...and the tables that the "kids" were seated at had a grand old time.
....we tried Via Napoli this past August...and enjoyed the food & atmosphere very much. The menu...in my opinion...is very kid-friendly (can you say Pizza?...VERY good pizza!)...as well as pasta (spaghetti & meatballs)...and mini calzones. The "adult" menu also has several items that I would consider "kid friendly".
....San Angel Inn is also a restaurant that would appeal to kids as well as the adult crowd (and...they have great margaritas...which appeals to my wife!). The menu has some good kids choices...chicken tenders with angel hair pasta....Quesadilla's, etc. And...when we went with other families...we had to get 3 or 4 orders of the Fried Plantains side dish for the "kids table"...because they fell in love with "fried bananas". And there is the atmosphere, the "volcano" in the background, and the Rio Del Tiempo ride to appease the kids (and adults too) before or after dining.
I would also vote for: Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, Chef Mickeys as character choices.
Laura 1989-off property, 2000-All Star Movies, 2008-Pop Century 2010-Caribbean Beach Resort, 2011- First Disney Cruise (Oct), May 2012-First stay at DVC Vero Beach resort. May 2013 POP & Fantasy Cruise
I'm a NICU nurse, so I know how life can be turned upside-down by the arrival of a premie...
I would focus right now on getting the ADRs that mean the most to you; maybe you need to have a family meeting to see what is the most important to everyone.
Does everyone want a character meal? Princesses or Mickey? Breakfast or dinner? Start with things like that...
Remember how tiring this trip will be on the little one, and plan lots of breaks -- I would be ready to abandon my meal plans occasionally, based on things like tolerance to the heat and his overall temperament (or that of the toddler!). Is your family better in the morning or the evening? Do you all need a sit-down lunch in the air conditioning to refresh and regroup?
Only you can answer these questions, but it gives you a place to start. I hope you have a great trip!
Dinner at Garden Grill in Epcot (characters are there)
T Rex (call them directly for a ressie though)
Tusker House (characters) OR Rainforest cafe for breakfast (and then do animal kingdom park)
Crystal Palace or Chef Mickets (characters at both) and then do Magic Kingdom
