Hi Charlotte..

Well if there is one thing that there a lot of around Disney World it is restaurants filled with kids that are sometime tired and little loud....so you will not be alone.
Remember, Disney World is 40 square MILES, so where you are staying will have a lot to with with what restaurants are handy and reasonbly priced.

If you don't mind buffets, there are plenty. Probably the best overall are the Golden Corrals. There is one in Kissimmee on 192 west of Disney about 2 miles. It is on the the south side of 192 close to Sherberth Road which intersects 192.
There are hundreds of chains along 192 including Red Lobster, Denny's Outback, Lots of Pizza, Chili,s and so on.

If you want a great Disney Buffet for the kids, try Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Hotel. You do NOT need to be staying in the hotel or even have Disney park tickets to go. Just call 407 WDW DINE to make ressies (priority seating) For breakfast kids under 2 are free and the 3 y/o is about 12 dollars. Adults are about 15 dollars. It is a little pricy but the greatest take home pictures with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale...

Good Luck and it you let us know where you are staying we can give you a few more ideas close to where you are at....

Hi, Charlotte and welcome to the DIS! :wave2: Be sure to check out the UK forums and get some input from a Brit perspective.

Wherabouts in Kissimmee are you staying? The main drag (Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, aka US192) is literally miles long and packed with places to eat. If you tell us where you're staying we'll be able to suggest some places close by.

Hi Ted

Thanks for your reply the Chef Mickey's Buffet sounds great and must go there. We are staying at the Holiday inn Nikki Bird on the 192 which we have also had mixed reviews about let me know if you know it.

Hi..as I post this there is a another post right below yours that has some info about Nikki Bird...Should help to answer questions for you.

Glad you will be doing Chef Mickey's Breakfast goes until 11:30. We love to go about 10:30 to 10:45 as it is less crowded.

Try Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney. The animals should keep them amused. Planet Hollywood is so loud nobody would even notice them there. But, I think you should feel free to go anywhere you would like. It is Orlando. As long as you stay away from fine dining you are good.
