When you go to WDW where are your favorite places to eat with your toddler girl?
What are some of the places she likes the most? Our little one will be about 2 1/2 when we go in the early spring.

We have many favorites and places we want to take her but we thought we would see what other's like also to see if we are passing something over that we should consider.

Really - any character dining is the answer! Chef Mickeys, The Crystal Palace, Cindy's Royal Table, 1900 Park Fare. . . . there's even more than that!

I don't have a little girl but I have 3 (2,3, 5) little boys and to be honest thier favorite is CRT. My youngest 2 absolutely loves it. He always is asking to go back and see Rella. I am sure this won't last forever so I enjoy it now while I can.

Yes, any character meal. Also, we are looking forward to the family style meals like at O'Hana since we don't have to keep getting u:thumbsup2 p from the table like at a buffet.

My pick for best toddler meal would have been Garden Grill, but with that not an option anymore, I'll have to go with Ohana breakfast. Character-wise I'd choose Crystal Palace, but the family style of Ohana wins out for me. Really, I think either would be fun.

Chef Mickeys :thumbsup2 I always took my boys there when they were little. They loved it there. We did go to other characters resturants but we always went back to Chef Mic's .

My 2-1/2 year old loved the princess breakfast in Norway wearing her sleeping Beauty dress.

We went last summer and my DS, who was 3 at the time, loved Ohana's for dinner because of the coconut races and all the interaction. We will definately do the same this year but this time will will watch the water parade and Wishes from the Poly beach afterwards.

He also liked the coral reef because we sat right in front of the glass ( he could see the fish and the diver I had hold up a sign for my huband on our annvs.). He did not like the character dining ( he was afraid :scared: )

Hollywood and Vine if she's familiar with the Playhouse Disney characters (JoJo and Goliath, June and Leo from the Little Einsteins). We had a late breakfast there and the character interaction was terrific.

Chef Mickey's is one of DD 5's enduring favorites, as is 'Ohana dinner. Crystal Palace with Pooh and friends is always a hit too.

Really, I think either would be fun.I thought Garden Grill was just discontinuing lunch and would continue to have characters at dinner. Can't remember where I read it though. Was I mistaken?

:confused: Do you know if the characters are there for lunch too?

:thumbsup2 Yes, they will still have the character dinner at GG. They are closing completely for lunch the first week in October.

Places we like to eat with our toddler:
#1 - Chef Mickey
#2 - Crystal Palace
#3 - Counter-service Fish 'n Chips at the UK Pavilion (Epcot)

Have a magical trip! :wizard:

Yes, that makes it very easy to fit in, I think. Breakfast runs from 8:00 am to 11:20 am, and lunch from 11:40 am to 2:25 pm. :goodvibes

:goodvibes Thanks for the info!

:woohoo: We have a lunch ADR at H&V for our upcoming trip. I knew they didn't have characters at dinner. I just assumed they were at lunch AND breakfast. But, I forgot to ask the CM when I made the reservation.
