    WDW bound in Feb., We'll be traveling with two BOYS 4 and 8 as far as the dining, what would be the DON"T MISS character dining experiences we must do! They love all the characters except the princess stuff as they put it! Anything for just the boys?

    Thanks for writing the panel Kerry! We absolutely love character dining as it gives the kids a great chance to get up close with the characters while enjoying a yummy meal! Here are some of the less princessy ones that your boys might be more interested in:
    - Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom is awesome, and Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore are most entertaining. The kids can participate in a parade through the restaurant. If you go for breakfast, be sure to try Pooh's puffed french toast!
    - Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort is an all-time favourite, with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto.
    - Lilo and Stitch are great breakfast hosts at 'Ohana's in the Polynesian resort.
    - Chip and Dale host a family-style dinner at the Garden Grill in the Land Pavillion in Epcot.
    - Tusker House is the place to be for breaky at the Animal Kingdom, where Donald, Daisy and their pals entertain and pose for pictures with you.
    - During breakfast at the Cape May Cafe buffet, Admiral Goofy and his crew will cook up a storm.

    Be sure to book your reservation early, as character experiences are extremely popular and fill up quickly. You can do this either by calling (407) WDW-DINE or online by clicking here. I hope this helps!
