    I have a 15, 10, and 1, all boys. Would the 15 and 10 year old enjoy eating with the Character's and if so which place would be the best?Thanks,Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer,

    Wow, you have an even larger age span between your 2 older boys and your youngest than I do!  While I don't have a teenager, I do have a 10 year old, and he still enjoys character meals.  Although my boys consider themselves "too cool" to get autographs, they still like having their picture taken with the characters, and they really enjoy watching their baby sister get excited about meeting Mickey and Minnie.

    Even if your boys aren't thrilled about a little one on one time with the characters, I'm sure they'll be more than happy with the food selection at the character restaurants.  Food is either served family style or buffet - either way, it's all you can eat, and as you know, growing boys can eat a lot!

    For traditional characters, I recommend Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary.  My favorite character breakfasts are Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club and Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom.

    If you think your kids might even be up to dining with Winnie the Pooh and his friends, then Crystal Palace is the place to go.  I've always enjoyed the breakfast buffet at this restaurant, but recently I had the opportunity to have dinner here, and it was also delicious.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
