    I have 3 girls - on the tomboy side. (8 year old twins and a 10 year old) They do NOT want anything princess!!! any suggestions for character dining for pre-teens that are non princess???

    Hi Marianna!  While I am sure that your daughters are your "princesses", the sparkly tiaras and ballgowns are not every little girl's cup of tea!

    There are plenty of options for you.  Actually, very few of the character experiences are "princess" characters.  Most of them are classic Disney characters.  My family has two favorites:  Chef Mickey's (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto), and Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant (Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy).  These are both great restaurants and feature the characters that EVERYONE loves!  My two boys are 8 and 11 and they still love getting their photos with them!

    We also love the Garden Grill family-style restaurant at Epcot.  This one features the farmer versions of Chip and Dale and Mickey Mouse.  And the dinner show, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a great family dinner too!

    You can see all of the Disney World character meet and greet meals on the Disney World website. 

    I hope this helps you plan for your trip!  Let me know if you have any other questions!
