    Are there any dinners with characters for boys? My son will be 6 when we visit. He loves the pirates and some of the male characters.

    I have total empathy since I have a houseful of boys who have never been interested in princesses.  The closest opportunity for dining with pirates is at Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where Jake the Neverland pirate visits along with Disney's Little Einsteins, Handy Manny, and Special Agent Oso. There are also some non-princess dining experiences your son may enjoy (just click here to read more about all of them):

    Cape May Cafe, Chef Mickey's, Mickey's Backyard BBQ have Mickey & his friends
    The Crystal Palace has Winnie the Pooh & friends
    The Garden Grill has Chip 'n Dale 
    'Ohana has Lilo & Stitch
    Tusker House has Donald Duck and his friends
    50's Prime Time Cafe makes guests feel like they've gone back in time; it's a hoot!
    Whispering Canyon Cafe has lots of cowboy antics and fun
    Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater provides guests with feeling of being in an old drive-in theater from the '50s & '60s

    I also have to tell you about a few other pirate experiences with The Pirates League, the Pirates & Pales Fireworks Voyage, & The Legend of Jack Sparrow.  There aren't character dining, but still lots of fun for fans of pirates.
