    What are the best character dining experiences for dinner for boys? My son is 3 years old.

    I'd say that for most boys you could eliminate the princess oriented meals from your list. Those would be Cinderella's Royal Table, 1900 Park Fare, and the Storybook meals at the Akershus at Epcot. Other than that, absolutely any of the character meals would be great for your son. I'd make the choice based on which characters your son prefers or where you'll be at WDW.

    Some that you might consider are:

    - Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary. This is the classic character dining experience featuring Mickey and his pals.
    - Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom. Donald Duck presides at this buffet. Has plenty of familiar American dishes on the buffet line, but also many international foods as well.
    - Garden Grill in Epcot. Mickey and friends are here. Family style food served in a revolving restaurant.
    - Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom. Buffet with Winnie the Pooh and friends, served in a bright, sunny room.
    - Hollywood and Vine in Disney's Hollywood Studios. At breakfast, Playhouse Disney characters appear at this buffet. Lots of singing and dancing at this meal.

    Any of these would be nice choices for a three year old boy.  I hope you have a great trip!
