CM or CP would both be good. Take a bag of surprises, magna doodles, crayons, toys! Good Luck and go with the flow. Get up and take them for a walk!

CM, ohanas, whispering canyon and my twins really loved teppan edo! They also liked GG but it wasn't as chaotic as some of the other character meals, buts that's why I did like it!

As long as your "active" toddler doesn't feel the need to run around the room and can stay seated except for when you want them up, they should be fine at many of the TS restaurants. But if you plan on them being able to get up and dance, walk around, etc, there are a lot of other guests who are getting up to get their food at buffets who might not enjoy a toddler darting around.

Parents who take the time to plan out the best places for their toddlers, aren't generally the type to allow them to act in a manor disrupting to other diners.

I agree with you in part. The only problem I can see is that the OP needs her kids to understand that they have to wait for the characters to come to them, they can't run up to them. Each table has to wait their turn. People are accepting of active toddlers to a point. They won't be so accepting if they are taking pics of their children and some other little one jumps into the shot.

Also at buffets you have the added challenge of not letting your kids bump into people walking with plates of food.
