My DGD just loves O'hana and Whispering Canyon along as Captain Cook's at The Polynesian.

All the resturants in Epcot were fun, especially Morocco and France Le Chefs with Remy.

Enjoy! Karen

I have 10 yo DS and 8yo DD who have both been to WDW around15 times...so their favorites change, but they consistently enjoy Ohana, Teppan Edo, Yachtsman (especially for dessert), Whispering Canyon, and Narccoosse.

My kids have always loved Sci-Fi at DHS. Also, the Plaza at MK because of the ice cream sundaes for dessert. Now that they're teens, they enjoyed ESPN at the Boardwalk because of all the TVs (even in the restrooms!) and cool sports stuff.

My daughter loves Biergarten in Germany (Epcot) because there is a show and the kids get to dance in front of the stage. The food is great and there are lots of options for kids & adults!

T-Rex and RFC. Sci Fi. Chefs de France...it was kind of a character experience though. Ohana dinner mostly because looking around the poly, getting a lei, and an umbrella drink (which I don't think every server does)

My kids loved Tony's, Teppan Edo, Be Our Guest, and Biergarten. In the past DD really liked San Angel and Le Chef's, they weren't as much of a hit on our last trip for some reason. Rainforest Cafe is always fun too.
