I have some tips when you go up to North Conway NH I have some places to stay and eat while you are up here.
In Jackson NH - Good place for breakfast - Yesterday's good place to go everyone pancakes are very big - everything is freshly made very good. http://www.sarahsyesterdays.com/
Another place to go for breakfast/lunch is Glen Junction - try to get there early. They have a playroom upstairs for the kids while you wait (toys & video games) - they also have a train tracks above you while you are eating your breakfast. http://www.glenjunction.com/
If you are interested in bbq or ribs than the place to go is Moats Mountain -they also have great a menu for the none meat eaters. Everyone can be satisfied going to dinner here, they have a good kids menu and they seem to stick all the families in the same area. http://www.moatmountain.com/ Great with large parties.
If you are looking to get sandwiches/breakfast sandwichs before a hiking trip - or before you go into storyland Kringle's Country Store - Rte 16 Linderhoff Plaza (1/2 mile north of Story Land)

Many local businesses such as most hotels (like Yankee Clipper - on right after the outlets... or ski shops such as Bob and Terri's Ski shop (just past muddy moose on left) sell discount lift tickets. Check local ski shops before you go. Also BP gas stations have discounts to a few of the resorts. You can also pre-buy tickets online in advance (sometimes 48 hours is required) which is cheaper (usually $10 off) and easier. If you are going to take a lesson call ahead and reserve a spot or they may be fill when you get there. You may want to rent your equipment off the mountain prior to the start of skiing from one of the local ski shops. Bob and Terri's, Stan and Dad, Great American Skiing Co, etc. are all much cheaper for a single/multi day rental and also much faster! It is better than wasting your time standing in line getting skis instead of actually skiing. www.skinh.com is a great source of information on skiing in New Hampshire. www.Liftopia.com has discount tickets but once purchased they are non-interchangable regardless of the reason and they must be used on the specific day they were purchased for. It is an easy to use webiste. You pick the day(s) you want to ski and it gives you the cheapest lift tickets for each available mountain. I got my tickets to wildcat for $39 one day!!! Kids are even cheaper! I must say though that I have bought tickets for Wildcat and were unable to use them and they actually gave me a voucher to come back.
Storyland was a blast for our 3 and 6 year old grandchildren, the little one wanted to "live there.." It is worth every penny spent on the admission. We took the kids on the Conway Scenic Railroad. It was awful. There was about 2 minutes of scenery, the other 1 and 40 minutes was mostly the back of houses, parking lots and roads. Save your money and skip the railroad. Red Fox was a great restauraunt for the adults and the kids.
We just returned and stayed at the BW Red Jacket inn what a place for familys with the 14,000 sq ft water park attached. The hotel was so nice and family oriented their morning brunch was wonderful a buffet with fresh fruit,home made pastries and everything from waffels to pancakes with all the fixings plus an omlet station rooms were spacious clean and the mountain views were amasing.
Why is this listed as Baltimore Maryland. It is not in the area?
Red Fox - also has a great Sunday brunch - all you can eat - try to get there early. waffle making - eggs, everyone goes away very full
We also love the Red Fox restaurant in Jackson. It is about a mile past Story Land on the left hand side. We try to get there early (5:00 p.m.) to beat the dinner crowd. However, if you do have to wait, there is a great movie room for the kids or playroom for toddlers to keep them entertained. The menu is huge with lots to choose from. My personal favorite is the terry glazed sirloin skins! To die for! I get them as my meal with a salad. : ) You just have to try this restaurant! http://www.redfoxpub.com/index.html
