We've been making these decisions quite a bit over the past few years! Our boys are now ages 6, 12 and 13. Our 13-year-old is now to the point where $40 for a meal is more justified, given the amount and variety he eats. But not for our 12-year-old. So we've eliminated most fixed price restaurants from our rotation - not because we don't like them, but because it's not a great value and we've found other restaurants we prefer. Some fixed price restaurants remain on our rotation for the experience or tradition, like Garden Grill for dinner. And both our 6-year-old and our older boys have great fun at character meals, so we'll plan Tusker, Ohana or Cape May, but only for breakfast. (That's also a questionable value, but it's fun to mix in at least one character meal.) We've found that signature meals and ADRs in World Showcase usually work better for us than fixed price meals anyway.

So maybe skip Ohana this time, and see what happens in a couple years. I'm guessing that when our boys are 14, 20 and 21, we'll be reconsidering this issue!
