Haven't been to via Napolitano but I think Weingarten would be very kid friendly entertainment wise. You do get seated with other parties though, just so youre aware. Another recommendation could be San angel inn. There is a cool atmosphere and from some tests you can watch the boat ride go by.

I think either one would be fine but I think Biergarten has a slight edge. I've heard great things about the food and entertainment With a party your size you would probably have your own table.

Biergarten for sure. Via Napoli has good pizza, but that's about it. Biergarten has a great buffet as well as a very entertaining band. The kids can even get up and dance.

The only other TS that really comes to mind might be Teppan Edo. While not 'entertainment' per se, the kids might get a kick out of watching the chefs cook their meal in front of them.

I think Biergarten is more fun and the food is as good as Via Napoli's.

There are no restaurants in WDW that are not friendly to kids.

Marrakesh has a belly dancer.

Coral Reef is a big fish tank, food is not for everyone.

Sunshine Seasons Food Court cafeteria is fun for some families. No waiters and everyone gets what they want. Fun for the right age child(ren).

Via Napoli pizzas are a sight for pizza fans.

I think both are fine for kids (although I love VN's pizza) Don't forget CR has that fabulous fish tank.

Feel free to check out some of my Epcot restaurant reviews with photos (including all those mentioned above):

I haven`t been to either of those but we did Les Chefs de Frances and the kids and adults really enjoyed the meals and the kids especially loved when the animatronic Remy came to our table for a visit. It was wonderful.

Definitely Biergarten. They will have a German band and a dance floor to keep them entertained. We took 3 kids there on our last trip and they had a blast. We really enjoy the food there too.

We have eaten at most restaurants in EPCOT with our four kids and they are all good with kids. Also look into Akershus in Norway. It has all of the princesses. We loved that too. But Biergarten is a lot of fun. My kids did love it. We also absolutely love the pizza at Via Napoli. Enjoy.

I think Biergarten would be a blast w/9 people! I'm not much into German food, but still found plenty to eat. The music, dancing and atmosphere is sure to be a hit, imo!

We went to Biergarten (sp?) 2 years ago with both my family and my sister's family, we were 4 adults and 6 kids. We were all at one table and was probably the most entertaining meal we had together on that trip. The kids had so much fun dancing with the band.

While Disney restaurants are very kid friendly, Biergarten was probably the one that the kids enjoyed to the most, and the rest of us parents enjoyed watching them have fun without trying to keep them in their seats, be mindful of other diners.....
