The best family restaurants in Orlando are places where you can enjoy great food in unusual surroundings that will amaze and entertain all ages. From dining with fairy tale characters come to life to watching animals while you eat, our selections are based on more than just the food – although you can be sure of a great feed, too.

    Orlando is already very child-friendly, with most restaurants allowing children in, at least until a late-night curfew. However, if you want to enjoy a meal that your little ones and teens will truly love then take a look at our top restaurants that fit the bill. Please note that some of these family-friendly Orlando restaurants are located within theme parks and will require access to the park before you’re able to enjoy a meal.
