    Traveling with two boys 4yr & 20mo. Booked Akershus, Cape May. We have room for one more char. meal, deciding Tusker House or Hollywood&Vine? Question-do the characters at either place "do" anything (shows, song, dance) or just walk aro

    Hi Nichole,

    You're going to see a lot of fun characters already at your two meals.  Deciding between Tusker House and Hollywood & Vine comes down to a couple of pretty simple questions. 

    First, how important is it for you and your family to see Mickey?  If your answer is "Very important", then you'll want to dine at Tusker House.  Mickey and his friends are dressed in their safari outfits and come around to visit each table.  There is no special show, but I do think that last time we were there, the children were invited to parade around the restaurant with the characters.  That's fairly standard at a lot of character meals.

    Hollywood & Vine has more opportunities for character interaction.  There are times when the children are called up to participated in little songs and dances from some of their favorite Disney Junior shows.  The food at the breakfast buffet is quite good with a nice selection.  Also, I find that it is usually easier to get a reservation for this restaurant than Tusker House.

    Honestly, if it were my decision, I'd go with Tusker House.  I think your boys will have a great time there.  However, both restaurants offer great food and a fun experience.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
