In need of more table service ideas!

I need to use up some Table service credits! Here is what I'm planning so far:
Tuskerhouse- breakfast
Trails End-dinner
Chef Mickey's-dinner
Coral Reef-lunch
Somewhere in World Showcase for dinner (same day as coral reef, too much table service?)

We will have a 4 year old and 20 month old, both great and adventurous eaters who can usually sit through a meal nicely

Thoughts on what I have/what I can add? Thanks!

My favorite place is Chefs of France, but small ones might like Teppen Edo since it is Hibachi style and the chef usually puts on a good show as well as the hostess and waitresses are all done in their traditional Japaneese Clothing. My kids really enjoyed this when they were younger.

Are you looking for resort or park TS locations? Any specific area?

Oh, and Biergarten since they put on a great show. My kids really loved this.

Your little ones might enjoy Biergarten in Germany with the band. It's also a buffet, they could eat off the adult buffet or children's buffet. It's one of my "not to be missed" meals. Love my German food.

Another Biergarten vote! My DD(6) has always ranked it right up there with Princess meals as her favorites. The little boys I have known that have been there have really liked it too.

It really depends on what you're looking for. DW and I really like a fun interactive restaurant. I noticed you didn't have any ADRs for Hollywood Studios, so what about 50's Prime Time Cafe? That place is a blast and the food is pretty decent. There is also Whispering Canyon Cafe over at the Wilderness Lodge that also has a lot of banter between you and the Cast Members. Those are fun spots that your kids may enjoy.

For GOOD food, most out here will recommend Le Cellier in Canada in Epcot. They make a great mushroom risotto and are known for their Filet. Via Napoli is a newer restaurant in Italy that is very nice too.

DW and I will only do 1 TS meal a day. We personally feel anymore then that you are forcing yourself to eat which you already tend to do in Disney. There are so many quick service options and snack options that spending money, credits and time on two TS meals a day is a waste. But that is only our opinion.

Have fun!

Teppan Edo & Highchairs?

Thanks for the great ideas! I was actually trying to avoid the Biergarten...we live in Michigan and are able to visit a town called Frankenmuth often, which is an entire town devoted to German food & culture! I thought we'd try and do something we can't do at home.

I'd been considering Teppan Edo all along but was concerned about high chairs. This style restaurant usually has high-top tables at home and won't work so well with a high-chair which we will definately be using. How is it in Disney?

I am just looking to fulfill my table service dining credits, most of my open meals are for breakfast but I will rearrange for a great dining experience!

Instead of a second ts on Epcot day how about scrapping Coral and walking over to Yachtsman for a 2ts dinner. Yachtsman was a great experience for us

If not, we love chefs de France in WS

Other places we liked we're saana, boma tusker and love love love Ohana

My kids were the same age when i went last Sept.
So my family loves crystal palace in MK for breakfast with ADR before park opens. It makes for great pictures of empty park. Plus restaurant is so pretty in morning with glass roof. We like the character interaction and food is so good. Very good for young children like yours.
We love Kona Cafe for breakfast too: try their tonga toast and Kona coffee...delicious.
Ohana's was a big hit for dinner.
LTT for lunch at MK.
Love 50's prime time in HS. Very fun atmosphere for the kids.
Never been but WHispering Canyon cafe at WL is supposed to be great for the kids (trying it this year)
Epcot: alkershus royal banquet is great for breakfast (didn't try their lunch or dinner) Really nice character experience even with my two boys. They loved the whole castle theme. Plus really nice family portrait with Bell included in dining plan.
My kids loved Biergarten @ Epcot for food but mostly for show and dancing. It is nice atmosphere too ( looks likes your in an old Bavarian town at sundown)
(My husband and I loved chefs de France, and le Cellier but it was not that great for my kids ages. Service was slow and nothing particularly interesting for the kids, they got bored quickly.)

These are all 1 dining credit and worth a visit

Hope that helped!
Have a great trip!

San Angel Inn & Teppon Edo at Epcot, Ohana for supper or Crystal Palace are all great food & enjoyable places to eat.
(We love Tusker House breakfast & Coral Reef)

Frankenmuth...also known for Christmas all year long

Teppen Edo would be fun. I found another thread about high chairs there, and it seams to be no problem.

Chefs de france would be fun too. Maybe you'll get to see Remy.

make sure you plan enough time in between coral reef & your other meal, otherwise you might not be hungry enough to enjoy the meal.

Cape May is one of our favorites, and is just a very short walk or boat ride through the International Gateway to Beach Club. It has quite the variety on the buffet for all palates and ages.
