  1. It seems like a majority of these suggestions are 2-dining credit meals. That’s great if you can afford that. For those on a budget, I’d suggest doing Akershush at Epcot instead of Cinderella’s Royal Table. You will still meet all of the princesses for a far lower cost. CRT is ridiculously expensive. You are paying (or over-paying) for eating in Cinderella’s castle. So, unless you’re rich or can somehow justify paying $50 for eggs, bacon, & sausage..stick to Akershus.

    Be Our Guest is definitely a must-do, but only for breakfast or lunch. This is another ridiculously expensive (even by Disney standards) meal. A kid’s meal of Mac & Cheese will put you back $35!

    Morimoto Asia is another good restaurant, but not for dinner. The menus for lunch & dinner are almost the same, as are the prices.There’s one or two added dished on the dinner menu that are expensive, which makes this a 2-dining-credit meal, even if you’re not buying the more expensive dishes.

    Make sure to check the menus for the restaurants before booking an ADR at any of them. You might find that what you’re getting for what it’s costing, just isn’t worth giving up an extra meal for. This is especially true for parents of picky eaters.

    1. We have picky eaters in our family and these places are ones that we would love to try. We are at the stage of our youngest still putting ranch dressing on everything, even on her pizza, and eating mostly beige foods! We have to check every menu before we book to make sure there is something she will eat. Hopefully we get out of this stage soon!
