Best character meal for 10 y.o. boy?
 
Over the weekend, we decided to bring my nephew to WDW with us in October. This will be his first trip, and he is VERY excited. I have two DDs, so I know all things princess. Boy stuff, I don't know at all. He would definitely like to do a character meal, but he doesn't have any preferences. He said he'd love anything we pick.

Since he is 10, he'll have to pay adult the adult price. I am sort of leaning toward a breakfast or something else that might be a little lower cost, since I'll be footing the bill for five adults and one child. Any ideas?

For breakfast, there are several character meal options (non-Princess):
  • Cape May Cafe (BC) - Minnie, Goofy, and Donald
  • Chef Mickey (CR) - Mickey and Friends
  • Crystal Palace (MK) - Winnie the Pooh & Friends
  • Hollywood & Vine (DHS) - Playhouse Disney
  • 'Ohana (Poly) - Stitch and Friends
  • Tusker House (AK) - Donald and Friends

I don't know that there are huge difference in terms of food choices at the different character breakfasts (there will usually be a few different items at each place). Everyone will have different opinions of each place; one placed loved by one person will be hated by another. So, if the main point is to see characters, I would pick the one that has the most interesting characters for your DS.

my DS (9)'s favorites....

Crystal Palace breakfast
'Ohana - stitch is a hit
Tusker House breakfast - great characters

I would do Cape May Cafe if it's not too hard to get to Beach Club in the morning. My boys always loved that one.

I have a DS 11and his favorite character breakfast is Tusker House. His favorite character dinner is Garden Grill.

My DS11 isn't really into characters, but he loved Cape May when we did it for breakfast a couple of years ago. He wants to try Tusker House next because it is similar to Boma, which is his absolute favorite (but no characters). He liked Chef Mickey's, but he was 5 when we did it. I think he'd still be fine with it now.

My son will be 10 this year. We go every year and he has requested Chef Mickey's for years. Not sure why he likes it. Maybe for the food (and desserts) but he doesn't seem phased about being too old for the characters.

Believe it or not my son loved CRT we did the dinner though he loved the princesses making a big fuss over him, he also really enjoyed Chef Mickey breakfast as well and Crystal Palace with the Pooh characters.

Our favorite for breakfast is Cape May at the BC. The buffet has a lot of variety and the characters are cute as they are dressed in beach gear :goodvibes.

Tusker House is our family favorite as its got a huge variety of food. Cape May would be our 2nd choice. It has good character interaction.

Garden Grill is a great character dinner. It is a buffet served family style with Farmer Mickey, Pluto and Chip & Dale. The characters spend lots of time at each table plus the restaurant revolves. Nothing cooler than that! Lol

We have eaten at all of them. My boys requested a return to these, in this order:

Tusker house
'Ohana
Chef Mickeys (breakfast only, dinner is awful)
Crystal Palace

But their favorite is breakfat at 1900 PF. They love the Mad Hatter. They also wanted Garden Grill but I asked them to cut a Mickey meal and was the one they voted to drop.

We have never enjoyed Cape May much and wouldn't recommend it unless you are staying at an Epcot. Resort. The Disney Jr meal is geared for little ones.

Both boys and girls both love and dislike all different kinds of Disney characters. You don't automatically like one character over another based on your anatomy or chromosomes. Your best bet is to look at the list of character meals at kennythepirate dot com and pick one with characters you know he likes.

DS10 (and DS15)'s favorite is Tusker House for brunch.

Not a character meal but one my guys love is Whispering Canyon bc of all the silliness!

I can't tell you how cute it is to see the princesses make a fuss over boys! Snow White almost always leaves her lipstick on their cheeks.

Our favorite dinner is Garden Grill with Chip and Dale. We also like Crystal Palace breakfast, but I would think that Pooh might be a little young for 10, but what do I know? I still love them all!
