Epcot - Child Friendly Restaurants
Most restaurants in Orlando are child friendly but if your children are anything like ours they can at times be picky eaters, so I thought I would let you have a few ideas that we have picked up along the way whilst visiting Epcot.
The Sunshine Season Food Faire at the Land Pavilion is a large restaurant with an open kitchen and different areas. One has a wood-fired grill with rotisserie items such as Ancho-rubbed beef, Moroccan chicken and grilled Atlantic salmon – perfect for us adults but the kids also liked the beef. There is a Soup and Salad area that is fabulous as it features the freshest herbs and vegetables from The Land greenhouse, so this might entice the kids to try it – we say Mickey Mouse planted them! At the Asian Wok Shop you can get noodles, which our children love. However, at each area there are not only vegetarian options but also children's items as well as grab-and-go foods so we found that all of us found lots we liked here.
The Garden Grille also in the Land Pavilion - a character meal (full-service). Farmer Mickey and Chip and Dale can be seen here and whilst the food is pre-plated, the kids have their own options of chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese etc.
The Coral Reef in the Living Seas is a fantastic place to visit with the kids as you can view the aquarium through several floor-to ceiling windows in the restaurant. The children were fascinated by this view and we got a nice quiet, relaxed meal. Try and make sure you request a table near the windows when you arrive.
Each of the countries in World Showcase has it's own restaurant or restaurants. All of them welcome children but some are more appropriate than others.
San Angel Inn at the Mexico pavilion has a great atmosphere but try and get a table alongside the “river”. Our children like tacos and corn chips so they love it here.
The Biergarten in the German Pavilion has a dinner-show presented here nightly, which is very festive, and our children seem to love it. Sausages, German pot roast, noodles and chicken catch our children’s eye here.
Alfredo's at the Italian pavilion. Most kids love pasta and Alfredo's serves huge amounts! At dinner musicians stroll the dining room and the waiters have been known to break into song.
Norway's Restaurant Akershus in Epcot offers 3 Princess Character meals a day! Not tried any of them but the reviews are fantastic.
Finally, try the Teppanyaki Dining rooms located in the Japan pavilion. The only downside is that diners are seated at large tables unless your own party is large you will be seated with “strangers” which can make the kids a little conscious (but so well behaved!!) but the Japanese chefs prepare meals at grills built right into the table and our children were mesmerised by their antics.
