My son always liked the Sci Fi and Boma, and for some reason Pecos Bills.

My 10 year old boy loves Ohana, 50s PTC, Cali Grill (thinks they have the coolest desserts and loves the fireworks during dinner)!

Coral Reef. We were there when they started feeding the fish and could see the divers swimming around the tank. The kids loved it and still talk about it today.

I forgot Coral Reef that's another favorite. My DS really likes their lobster bisque.

Hi there! My kids are now 11 and 9 and we have been going yearly since they were babies. Over the years their favourites have been Biergarten (for the dancing), Coral Reef (they love the sea turtle), Via Napoli for the pizza, TRex for the coolness (I liked the food there too), O'Hanna for the games they play with the kids and they like the big BBQ pit, Raglan Road for the Irish dancers, and Wolfgang Puck express just 'cuz

Although, they really haven't had any complaints at the Disney restaurants we have eaten at...they are all really kid friendly.

Have fun

Our grandkids love O'Hana, Via Napoli, Biergarten (although I don't know why because, to me, the food is awful), and 50's Prime Time. We always make them go to the Hoop-de-Doo and they complain, but they have fun once they get there. By far, their favorite is O'Hana. The grownups like it, too. Go early, get a drink in the bar, and enjoy the evening with your 'cousins'.

Hands down, ESPN club. 2 boys, sports family, need I say more?

And for some strange reason, my oldest likes the captain's grill, something about the grilled chicken sandwich and the dessert.

POR food court earns high marks, as well, for the cinnamon roll. (but I guess you could get that just about anywhere.)

Oh, they love Casey's too with the cartoons and of course, hot dogs. and baseball theme. Yup, if it's got a baseball theme, it's gotta be alright.

2009 - Caribbean 2010 - Coronado
2012 - POR 2014 - POR/YC

My 3 kids (now 21, 13, and 10) have always enjoyed eating good food. Every visit, my oldest son requests a Boma dinner, our middle child asks for O'hana (dinner), and our daughter loves the California Grill. They also like Boma for breakfast, Le Cellier, Grand Floridian Cafe for lunch, Kona for any meal, Whispering Canyon for lunch, Beaches and Cream, Marrakesh, Wolfgang Puck Express, Crystal Palace for brunch, and Raglan Road. while they have fun at 50's, Sci Fi, etc., they don't enjoy the food as much.

Way, Way Too Many Trips to List

Upcoming trips:

June 2014 WBC
October 2014 WBC
December 2014 WBC
April 2015 WBC
