    This October will be my families first trip to Disney. We have 1 son who will be 10. I want to do some character dining with him, but I am not sure what anyone recommends for a 10 year old boy. He loves all things Disney.

    Welcome Kasey, thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I just love Character Dining Experiences! It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet our favorite Disney Characters. A memory that will last a lifetime.
    There are many wonderful experiences, but Chef Mickey’s is absolutely my first option. This happy place is located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It is the best way to start off your magical day. While you have a delicious breakfast, Mickey Mouse and some of his pals will visit your table for photos and autographs. A great experience for any age range.
    Another very good option would be Tusker House restaurant, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort. While you dine, you will have a fabulous encounter with Donald Duck and some of his friends for photos. They will be wearing their cute safari outfits.
    If you want to make him a pleasant surprise, you could order a special birthday cake to be delivered to the restaurant of your preference. I am sure he will have a blast!
    Don’t hesitate to come back again if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
