Kids in Signature Restaurants

I promise I'm not trying to stir up any controversy regarding where children should or should not be, just have an honest question. We are currently scheduled for an 11:30am lunch @ '50s on our DHS day, and a 7:10 dinner @ FF. Our kids are 1.5 and 5. We go out to eat often at home, but usually in more family type restaurants, Olive Garden or Lone Star Steakhouse is probably as fancy as they've ever seen. I want to eat at FF sooo badly, but I am concerned about a few things:
Are meals there generally very slow? I appreciate a well-paced meal as much as the next grown up, but I don't know if they'd sit still for 3 hours after spending all day in the parks and having a sit down lunch.

Are two ADRs too much with the littles? I thought it might be, but I spaced them out a lot. We will probably finish at DHS by 3 or 4, and chill out/nap in the room for a little bit before dinner (staying at YC, so easy walk to FF).

And the dreaded question...is FF really appropriate for kids their ages? I know that children are present all over WDW, even in nice restaurants, but I'd hate to be "those people", kwim? We'd of course be willing to take them outside if they got fussy, as we would anywhere, but the level of acceptable indoor fussiness at Chef Mickey's is going to be vastly different from a signature. Are we setting ourselves up for certain failure? Any experiences with little ones in FF?
