I took DS there last month because it was the only way for him to meet Oso. The service was good, the character interaction was great, and the food was in no way worth $35, but it was pretty good. I liked the pork roast, the plantains, and the barbecue chicken. DS was happy with chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes. The dessert selection was my favorite part; lots of chocolate-covered fruit made me very happy. Josh from EasyWDW just reviewed it yesterday if you'd like to see pictures of the buffet. The sing-alongs are great for little kids, and the characters spend lots of time at each table and are very playful. I would absolutely recommend it if you have preschoolers.

I agree that the food alone is not worth $35 but the experience is, just like you said. Seeing my kids so happy at character meals makes it worth the price, although we do have our limits...won't pay the outrageous Chef mickeys prices anymore since my kids liked meeting Mickey at Garden Grill more. They said it was nice that he spent more time with them there than at CM and they would rather eat at GG now. We did enjoy the lunch at H&V but if it weren't for the character experience the food itself wouldn't be worth $35.
