So I don't know what night you are looking to celebrate, but if I recall you have a 5-year old daughter, and a party of 7?
So I looked on the evening of the 9th for a party of 7. I actually found a lot of great suggestions. Here are some of my favorites;
Hoop Dee Doo Review:
This is my top recommendation. It is a personal family favorite, and an annual visit for us on our trips. The entertainment and food are both good, and all-age appropriate.
The scenic viewing areas are beautiful, and a great pre- and post-meal experience. The buffet is fantastic, with African and Indian inspired entrees as well as American classics. Sanaa
is also nearby and has even more Indian-inspired foods, and animal viewing from the restaurant seating itself.
: So "birthday celebration" and "German Food" may not seem to go hand-in-hand. But the festive, family seating approach makes for a very fun ambiance.
Other great ideas include Tusker House
(if you are going to be in the Animal Kingdom park and want a character experience), Whispering Canyon Cafe
, and Splitsville
(maybe some bowling with your meal?) at Downtown Disney.
The real question is "What kind of celebration do you want to have?" I have not found any meals available with princesses, but I did find some with characters, many with entertaining or exotic venues, and all with a vibrant and celebratory energy. And by looking around at other nights and meal times we may still find princesses, if that is what you want. Write me back with more on what you think you want for a celebration, and we can refine these down a bit!
Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
