I've got to say, I've never noticed boys and girls preferring different restaurants at WDW.

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

My then 3 year old loved Chef Mickey's, WCC, Crystal Palace, and Ohana. He is looking forward to eating at T-Rex when we go in May!

Lilo and Stitch are at Ohana during breakfast!

Our DS is 17, and loved both Ohana (breakfast) and T-Rex (dinner) on our Christmas trip. If you are considering T-Rex, you may want to request to NOT be seated in the Ice Cave, as its very loud and experiences the meteor shower quite intensely.

Our favorites:

*Crystal Palace (our oldest feels he is getting a little too old for those characters, though)
*Coral Reef (for the aquariums)
*Teppan Edo
*Whispering Canyon Cafe
*Raglan Road

We will be trying the following for the first time this year and I imagine they will be good for boys:

*Be Our Guest for dinner
*Via Napoli

Can't think of anywhere a boy would NOT like, but Coral Reef and Sci Fi dining are two of my boy's favorites.
