6. A Farm Fresh Meal
While many run to EPCOT’s World Showcase for dinner, there is a wonderful option right in Future World! The Garden Grill restaurant is a unique, ever-revolving restaurant that treats guests to views of The Living With the Land attraction. (And not only is the setup unique, but this restaurant serves food that is grown inside EPCOT greenhouses! It’s never too early to educate your kids on “green” practices.) While feasting on a hearty, American-fare meal, Chip and Dale (and other classic characters) will visit tables for autographs and photos. Kick back and eat up!
5. Dine Like Royalty
Inspired by an actual medieval castle, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in EPCOT’s Norway features character dining for a buffet-style breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And since this meal takes place in a castle, then who will be visiting? Princesses of course! Your child’s favorite heroines will stop by each table to greet the families. (It’s worth noting that both lunch and dinner feature Norwegian-inspired food, which may not appeal to the kiddos. Instead, I’d suggest making a breakfast reservation. Plus, this means you can enter the World Showcase before it opens!)
4. Call for a Pizza
If you find yourself experiencing “character-meal fatigue”, then hop on over to Via Napoli Pizzeria e Ristorante inside EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion. While this family-friendly restaurant has many unique Italian dishes, they are best known for a beloved children’s meal. Pizza. Via Napoli’s authentic wood-fired pizzas have gained a cult following for being the best pizza in WDW (maybe even Florida). Bon appetit!
