    Hi Larry ~

    Thank you for your kind words! We LOVE answering your questions so keep them coming!

    I have two boys and we are always looking for adventure! A character meal is always a must do for my family. My boys' top recommendations for character dinners would be:
    * Chef Mickey's
    * The Crystal Palace

    If you need a character breakfast recommendation, The Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at 'Ohana is awesome. They only have characters at breakfast but one of my boys loves Stitch so this is his must do.

    Another really fun character dining experience for my boys is Mickey's Backyard BBQ. The weather could be a factor since you are visiting in December so you may want to wait until a visit when you know the weather will be warmer.

    While it isn't a character dinner, take your grandson to Beaches & Cream Soda Shop and share a Kitchen Sink. My boys think this is the most fun dessert ever.

    Advanced Dining Reservations for all Table Service locations are highly recommended and can be made beginning 180 days prior to your trip through the link shown above or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. It is indeed our pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
