Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Kristin has taken many a family vacations as a child driving 24 hrs, cramped in the back of the car and fighting with her sister to get to Disney (definitely worth it though).

    Great article, we are a late night family and seem to always be looking for food as we close down the parks.

    Hi Dave! As far as I can tell, Picabu isn’t a participating Tables in Wonderland restaurant right now. Bummer!

    Thanks for reading!

    Great article – thx a mint for the helpful roundup…I’ve noted these for my next trip!

    BTW, I’m guessing it’s supposed to read 1:30AM weekends? (“Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas – until midnight Sun- Thurs and 1:30PM weekends”)

    cheers,
