Loud restaurants are always great, no worries if they are too loud. Careful with Peco's many of the chairs don't have backs and I've seen many kids crack their heads. If you need quiet, upstairs in Columbia house is perfect.
Pizzafari at AK is so much fun for little ones to look around and Sunshine in the Land is excellent for families.
DHS, SciFi is great for fun, not so much the food.
When mine were small we often just picked up fruit from stands, or a hotdog from Liberty Square, something from the stands around the lake in DHS. It was more filling the tummies than trying to fit in a proper meal on weird sleep/nap schedules. All the hotels have limited food pool side at the resorts too. We often took a break mid-day and that was perfect for them.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
