Smile Take a look & tell me what you think!!!

This is our first time staying on site & eating at TS places. We are paying OOP. I have made and then cancelled an embarrassingly high # of reservations!! It is really bad. So could you take a look at my plans and tell me what you think.

Our kids are not adventurous eaters nor are they big eaters. The 2 year old will not sit still at the dinner table for more than 5 minutes these days so I am a little worried about that!!!

Here we are (as of right now):

Arrival day: dinner @ Chef Mickey's
Day 2: lunch @ tusker house
Day 3: lunch @ Hollywood & vine (toddler LOVES Oso!!)
Day 4: lunch @ biergarten
Day 5: breakfast @ ohana

We are staying offsite for another week after our disney stay so we are planning a breakfast at kona as well as maybe a dinner @ 1900 park fare.

Does this look ok??

i believe your 2 yr old will stay seated at the character meals you have. chef mickeys is sooooo good and i love the characters there. also @ ohana, it's delicious. now, we really enjoyed biergarten, it's really neat inside and the entertainment was great! i'm not a fan of tusker house cause when i went they had coucous and it was a little different, i prefer yak & yeti but i think they have characters there now. 1900 park fare was really good, great characters. also they have little coloring books @ each restaurant for your 2yr old to do. i don't think you have to worry too much about it, disney has so much for them to look at.
enjoy your trip, weather should be good too then.

I think your ADRs look great. I love the food at Tusker House for lunch. It's really amazing with so many cool things to try. The only bad part is I need a nap after trying everything.

Did you consider a Crystal Palace breakfast? I just love the characters at this meal. Eeyore is my favorite, so I'm a little partial.

Seriously, you have to make choices and yours are all good.

Have a wonderful trip.

As far as them not being adventurous eaters, I don't think you have anything to worry about at any of these places. Biergarten and Tusker House have some fairly unusual food, but they also have basic kids items like hot dogs and mac and cheese.

Your kids should also be pretty entertained at most of these places. Never been to Chef Mickey's, but I will say I was really impressed with the character interaction at Hollywood and Vine. We took my niece there when we went to Disney last. Not only did the characters come around, but the kids were invited to participate in different activities during the meal as well. Biergarten was fun as well- they had a fun floor show that the kids were encouraged to participate in. I've heard good things about the other places on your list as well.

They look great! Consider prime time cafe at the studios as a cheaper, more fun alternative to hollywood and vine
