    We are going to Disney World in February 2012. My daughter will turn 8 while we are there and my son will turn 11 while at Disney. We have lots of character dinner ideas for my daughter...but what character dinners are good for an 11 year old boy?

    My top choice would be Garden Grill, David.  Not only will your son enjoy dining with the characters (including farmer Mickey!), but so, too, will he likely appreciate the fact that the restaurant actually rotates as you dine.  Not to worry, it's a v-e-r-y  s-l-o-w rotation that you'll hardly notice until you've completed half of your meal and you realize you're facing an entirely different scene: the inside of the Living with the Land attraction to be precise.  It's a super fun meal with tasty food--some of which is grown right inside Epcot! 

    Second to that one, I'd probably recommend Chef Mickey's based on it's popularity with both boys and girls of all ages.  Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
