Best character meal for 6 boys and 4 girls

What do you think would be the best character meal for 2 adult men, 3 adult women, 13 and 16 year old boys, 9 year old boys and 9 year old girl? It doesn't matter what park or hotel and will during summer of 2015.

Tusker House in AK. It's fun, but doesn't have a baby-theme to it, so even the boys should be able to enjoy. The food is also great! MY second suggestion, for the same reasons, is Cape May's breakfast at the Beach Club.

Chef Mickey's--it has all the traditional characters who come around to the table--mickey, goofy, donald, minnie, pluto, chip, dale etc. It is a buffet so the big people (and I include the teen boys) can eat to their hearts content.

1900 Park Fare--This is one of our favorites for food. I enjoy the characters but the only reason I suggest this is that the boys will be totally embarrassed which can make it fun. Cinderella and her prince come out and make their way around. But the fun is when the wicked stepmother and the step sisters come around. They really have a good time making teen boys feel thoroughly embarrassed. It's more fun if you engage them. But Chef Mickey's is more of a non-female, more of a traditional Disney experience.

Hope that helps.

If the boys would be up for it, I would thoroughly agree with this. The stepfamily is awesome anywhere they are, but especially at this dinner since you have more time for personal interaction. Of course, it's also a pretty good buffet, so if nothing else, there's lots of food for the boys, and the young girl could still enjoy a more unique "princess" interaction.

Otherwise, I'm partial to Tusker House, if only for a few slightly more interesting buffet choices (a little African flair if you want it, but definitely does not dominate the buffet as a whole).

I agree about Tusker House breakfast. Think the teens would be most comfortable there.

Another vote for Tusker House! Super fun and the food is much better than the other character buffets.

Honestly, and I know others may disagree but I would pick CRT or Akershus, etc. The girl would love it and the boys are at an age were they would (assumingly) love the attention from beautiful princesses. Not too mention the location of either is pretty amazing.

We went to Akershus last year to celebrate DD's 5th birthday but DS9 enjoyed the dinner just as much since every princess that came by gave him just as much attention as her. Quite a few blushing photos of him were captured! I think the older the kids get the more into face characters they are for atleast a little while.
