Replacing linoleum with ceramic tiles

I currently have a big sheet of linoleum in the kitchen and laundry room. After redoing the countertops and back splash it is time to attack the floor.

Ive removed a small patch under the fridge and it seems easy enough to remove. It's the linoleum and ten a layer of paper and what seems like plywood underneath.

The question i have to you all is how do i deal with the height difference between the dining room and the kitchen. if i were to tile over the area where the linoleum is (after it is fully removed). it would be higher than the dining area.

How do i deal with this? Will a transition be fine or should i consider removing part of the subfloor to get it even. i really dont want to touch the subfloor, but at the same time i want the floor to look really good and even.

any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Little more to it then that.
All the linoleum and any 1/4 plywood or particle board will need to go.
Need to know the width, spacing, free spans of the floor joist and what's there now for a subfloor.
Tile floors can not have any flexing and must be flat.
