i found this interesting so i thought you all would enjoy this...
Part of the fun of the dining adventure is that kids get to play with their food before they enjoy it. At the California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort, children can order Ms. Ice Cream Head, which includes a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a decorated cone on top, sprinkles and a variety of candy for the eyes, nose and mouth. Chocolate "moose" at Canada's Le Cellier restaurant at Epcot is very popular and includes mousse rolled in cookie crumbs that children can decorate with cookie antlers, eyes, nose and mouth. Many themed restaurants have their own creations, such as the troll cookies at Norway's Restaurant Akershus at Epcot. Children can paint their cookies with frosting and decorate them with candy for eyes and cotton candy for hair.
Here's a sample of some of the culinary adventures that children may enjoy:
Walt Disney World Junior Chefs
Children get a taste of what it's like behind the scenes in the Walt Disney World Junior Chef Program. In both quick-service and full-service restaurants, young Guests are randomly selected each day to don a toque and white jacket and help decorate a cake or cookies, or toss a salad for their own family's meal. Though the children are not permitted in the kitchens, the chefs give them a quick and fun culinary lesson, which Guests often gather around to watch.
For instance, at Boma-Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, cultural representatives from Africa select children to participate. A Boma chef comes to the table and escorts the child to the restaurant's on-stage bakery to make a dessert to share with their family. Each participant gets a photo and a certificate signed by the chef.
Fun With Food at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
When mom and dad are ready for a break, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa offers Guests two culinary programs for kids:
The Wonderland Tea Party is an hour-long children-only celebration with Alice and the Mad Hatter from the animated film Alice in Wonderland. Up to 24 children (ages 4-10) gather at a long, linen-covered table to decorate cupcakes (with their fingers) and dine on heart-shaped peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and apple juice "tea." Alice and the Mad Hatter join in the fun by playing games like "Hatter Says" with the children. The party ends with the children gathering fresh flowers that decorate the table to tie into bouquets to give their parents. The cost is $28.17 per child.
Grand Adventures in Cooking lets children make a dessert, then share it with Grand Floridian Guests. The cooking program (for ages 4-10) is limited to 12 young chefs per day, who start the two-hour session by painting their chef aprons with colorful handprints. As the aprons dry, the children hear a story themed to the dessert that they will prepare, with nearly a dozen dessert-and-story choices in the repertoire. For instance, for strawberry shortcake, the children assemble already-made cake with fresh berries and whipped cream, then head to the lobby in toques and aprons to offer the treats to Guests. On an average day, the children will make 100 strawberry shortcakes, 10 dozen cookies or nine pounds of fudge. The cost is $28.17 per child.
