need to pick one more dinner...help?

We changed our dates, and rebooked most of our ADRs. Due to some changes in our touring plans, we have another meal to book!

DH, me, DD6, DD4:
Tues - flight arrives @5pm, planning to hit the pool and snack in the evening
Wed - MK, dinner at Cali Grill @5:30, back to MK for Electrical Parade/Wishes
Thurs - Epcot, princess lunch at Akershus @1:20
Fri - HS, Whispering Canyon @ 5:15
Sat - AK, Raglan Road @ 5:30
Sun - ???
Mon - flight leaves at 6:55pm, will do CS meal


My youngest does not like costumed characters, so we are staying away from those. Where else should we try?

Kona Cafe, Whispering Canyon, The Wave, Boma, ESPN Cafe, Big River Grille.....

Those are all out of the parks, not sure which park if any you were planning on that day.

How about Ohana?
There is entertainment (without the costumes), and food for everyone.

Here are three suggestions:
T-Rex at DTD is always a big hit with the kids!! A bit loud for the adults but interesting stuff all around.
Sci-Fi Drive-in at HS is fun, your booth is a car!!
Cinderella's Royal Table Dinner is always a hit with DD around that age. Who doesn't like eating in castle, especially when it's Cinderella's Castle.

My youngest does not like costumed characters, so we are staying away from those. Where else should we try?

Might depend in part on what park you plan on doing that evening, if any. If you are going to be in the AK area, Boma is good and the girls can also go to the AKL animal viewing areas; maybe even catch a storytime there?

If you are going to be in the MK area, 1900 PF dinner is face characters. Or take the launch over to Ft. Wilderness, eat at the Trails End buffet (1 TS), and watch the free Disney movie outdoors afterwards (you'll have to skip the campfire & sing-a-long since it includes Chip & Dale).

If you are going to Epcot, Biergarten is a lot of fun as well as offering good food and seems to appeal even to the pickiest eaters......mmm......pretzel bread.....

If you are going back to DHS, maybe take the boat to one of the Epcot area resorts like Cape May, or just spend the evening on the Boardwalk.

Depends on where you are going that day. Are you going to a park? Or do you want to go to a resort or DTD restaurant?

We're leaving Sunday and Monday a little more unplanned. Most likely MK on one of those days, and then whatever park the girls really want to see again. So, preferably an out of park spot, since we don't have hoppers.

For us we always plan to see what park we will be going to that day and pick something at the park or close by at a resort. Or we also look to see what easy transportation there is to get us back and forth. Also it comes down to see what is available. If we are at MK for the day we try for Crystal Palace, Liberty Tree, Tony's, Ohana, Chef Mickey's or see what we can get at Epcot which is a nice Monorail ride away. Obcourse if we are at Epcot there are alot of choices. If we are at DHS we always go to Cape May since it's a nice close boat ride away from the park and if we want to get back to the park it's a nice ride back or walk. If we stay at AK for the day we either got to something at DTD or trip over to BOMA.
Thinking of all these restaurants right now is making me wish we were there.

Since you'd prefer an outside-the-parks restaurant, Ohana is also my first choice. Some other choices may be Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex Cafe, Boma, or even HDDR if you are staying for dinner and can do 2TS.

As others have said, it may depend on where you are staying and what park you think you may be in that day. Some of our favorites are Ohana, Kona Cafe , Grand Floridian Cafe and Sanaa.
