We are visiting Caribbean Beach Resort next week for 2 weeks and its our first visit to WDW. Does anyone have any recomendations on best places to eat and how to make reservations? Our kids are 8 and 5 years old.

1-407-wdw-dine is the number for dining reservations. Try to get a reservation for Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort; it's a fun character meal, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will probably have to take any available time, don't be picky about date and time. It's well worth it. There are menus for most Disney restaurants on www.allears.net. Another fun meal is Ohana at the Polynesian. Are your kids girls or boys? At Epcot, there is a Princess character meal at Akershus (sp?) in Norway. My family likes the character dining obviously!

I highly suggest trying 50's Prime Time for kids that age. Mama Melroses is another good choice.

First thing is you have a great food court right at the Caribbean Beach hotel. You will be able to get great breakfasts ( last time we were able to get Mickey shaped waffles) and other casual meals. Buy the refillable cups and you will be able to use them the entire length of your stay.

Disney caters to kids, so most restaurants will have Kids Meals.

Our favorite kid's restaurants would include:

Any of the character meals.

Our favorites are Liberty Tree Tavern ( I heard they will be ending their character meals, but I am not sure when) in Magic Kingdom. Also, Crystal Palace is another great character meal in MK.

We love Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge. It is barbeque and my kids love the fun atmosphere.

In Hollywood Studios, there are 3 kid's favorites: Sci-fi Dine-in ( request eating in a car ), 50's Prime Time ( a real fun experience ) and Mama Melrose.

The kids also love Rainforest Cafe. There are 2 of them- one in Animal Kingdom and one in Downtown Disney Marketplace.

In Epcot, my kids love the Mexico pavillion eating by the volcano. They do have a kids meal. The outside Mexico restaurant is nice, too, off of the lagoon. Germany is also fun, because it has entertainment.

If you are interested in any of the character Meals, I would call ASAP. Table Service Restaurants book up fast and I wouldn't count on just waliking up.

For a complete list of Disney Restaurants and Menus


to call from the UK

001 407 939 3463

Most Counter Service Restaurants are just fine also so I wouldn't rule them out, basic fare with a few nice extras that I'm sure your kids will like.

Cast Members at Caribbean Beach Guest Services can help you find availability once you are there, they are very helpful.

Caribbean Beach is a Great Resort, very Tropical and Fun, enjoy :)
