Taking “kid-friendly dining” to a whole new level.

For many families, “kid-friendly” isn’t an afterthought—it’s the only way to travel. And increasing numbers of resorts are making family travel a priority, from unique amenities to memorable family experiences.

Beaches Ocho Rios in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, offers the ultimate Sesame Street experience for families and a buffet designed at children’s height with a Sesame Street Character Breakfast. It also has a dozen special character events and activities with favorites like Elmo. Beaches excels at catering to children; kids can put on their chef hats and bake like the pros in the Cookie Monster Baking Class. With the help of the kitchen staff, they can mix up their favorite batch of cookies, and a hungry Cookie Monster will stop by to enjoy fresh-from-oven cookies with them.

Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica, offers an array of kid-friendly dining options, including healthy choices and kid classics they’re sure to love. The Coral Café at Jewel Runaway Bay Resort even offers a kid-height buffet so they can serve themselves parent-free. Last but not least: Want to split a Denver omelette with Donald Duck? Or a muffin with Mickey? Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in O’ahu, Hawaii, serves a Disney Character Breakfast where kids can meet their favorite Disney icons while they enjoy a tasty beachside breakfast —the perfect photo op.
