non-character meals with a 5 year old?
 
We have a trip scheduled for Jan 2-7 with the play/stay/dine offer. DH would prefer to avoid character meals. We are looking for recommendations for kid friendly TS restaurants that would also appeal to adults and DS16.

Our ADRs are currently

I vote for coral reef! The fish are amazing to watch!

There really aren't any kid-unfriendly restaurants at WDW.

Agreed. Our kids have been to almost all of them, including signatures and have never found any of them to be not kid-friendly. :goodvibes

Same as above. All restaurants should be fine for a 5 year old.

I have a six year old, so I have spent lots of time pondering this same question (we don't care for buffets too much, so character meals are a no go for us generally)

Here's a couple more:

Toy Story planet (CS at Hollywood Studios)-Really fun atmosphere for kids! lots of game-room type games around.

Cosmic Rays (CS at Magic Kingdom)-They have an animatronic show my kids love!!!!

Rainforest Cafe(Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom)-My kids love animals, so they loved this!

T-Rex Cafe (Downtown Disney)-Trying it this trip....looks fun!

I hope im not stepping on any toes here but i'll ask anyway....you said your DH wants to avoid character meals, but what about what your 5 yr old wants? Does everyone in your family get a choice of restaurant? Has your 5 yr old ever been to a character meal? If s/he has never been, i think its kinda sad to go to disney and not do ONE character meal.

My picks are: Coral Reef for sure. SciFi. Your 5 yr old would love to eat inside cars! TRex for sure.

This is true. Theyre all kid friendly. Youre at WDW afterall.

Sci Fi diner would be fun, maybe 50's Prime Time cafe.
And I agree with the others. We've taken kids of various ages, and have never felt out of place anywhere. Well, except for when my then-4yr old threw up in Cali Grill. :(

T-rex is a must if you kids like dinos. My boys also really liked Pizza Planet.

Another vote for TRex. The atmosphere was so fun and the food was really good.

I would also suggest San Angel Inn, Coral Reef and Liberty Tree Tavern.
