    We are going to DW in July. I have two boys, ages 7 and 3...What would you suggest for character dining...they aren't really breakfast eaters!

    There are some great dinner character experiences at Walt Disney World.  One of my favorites for seeing many of the great Disney characters coupled with a good buffet is Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary resort.  This is a very popular choice so you need to be getting that reservation as soon as possible.

    Another choice that I just enjoyed for the first time is Mickey's Backyard Barbecue at Fort Wilderness.  This is a very casual setting and food is basic hamburgers, ribs, etc but it was all very tasty.  Your boys may enjoy  the fact that they can get out on the dance floor with Mickey and friends and dance the night away.  There will also be a short show with a cowboy wrangler doing rope tricks etc.  A live band keeps the beat going for several hours but you can leave whenever you need to move on! My three year old grandson never stopped smiling or dancing for 2 1/2 hours!

    Another choice is the Garden Grill in EPCOT's Land pavilion.  Here you can meet Mickey and Chip and Dale and Pluto.  The restaurant revolves in a circle which is kind of fun for the kids.

    All of these will need advanced dining reservations so try to get them as soon as possible.
