Best place to dine on your birthday

We will be going to Disney in June. We will be celebrating our children's birthdays while there. They are going to pick where they want to eat their birthday dinner. My daughter, who will be turning 15, is indecisive and can't make up her mind! Any suggestions? She needs help!

What kind of food does your daughter like? Is she "too old" for princesses?

What is more important to her (and what is her favorite food? - seafood?Mexican? Italian?)... Food or a Dining *experience* - like with characters or something like 50's Prime Time type of thing? Need a little help narrowing down the choices.

For fun and wacky I'd say Whispering Canyon or 50s Prime Time but my DS18 suprised me with his choices for our upcoming trip. He loves anime' and the asian culture so his choices would be Teppan Edo or Yak and Yeti.

I'm not sure I'd do the castle again esp at that age but we also had a great time playing with the stepsisters and Lady Tremane at 1900 PF Dinner and at breakfast the Mad Hatter is a hoot.

Have a magical time, where ever you choose!

Prime Time and Chef Mickey's do some fun stuff for birthdays, but if she's not into that, then I'd go somewhere that she can dress up a little bit and have a nice "grown up" meal
Jack Sparrow: [after Will draws his sword] Put it away, son. It's not worth you getting beat again.
Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

Maybe somewhere to watch fireworks at the end of dinner? Narcossees? Tokyo dining (see if you score a window seat!) or you can have fun at Rose and Crown too and catch fireworks.

My 16 year old boy love Jiko last summer. It is a beautiful restaurant in an amazing setting. The food is excellent.

If you can get reservations for be our guest that is a perfect restaurant. If you cant I would pick chef de France, Ohana, California grill, or the beirgaten
