I have 3 boys as well! Some of their favorite places to eat have been: Dine-in Theater (where you sit in a car to eat), Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House, chef Mickeys, Columbia harbor house (go up stairs and sit in the "bridge section" to watch all the people walk by while you eat). The roasted/candies nuts outside the Jungle Cruise are a yummy snack.

Ak- Tusker House breakfast (sit down)

We also really enjoy Chef Mickeys... it's lots of fun. (I know some people don't love the food - we think it's good, and the atmosphere is great!)

We also have three boys (3, 7 and 9) and are going for the 2nd time in May. Last year we liked Flametree Bbq at AK for a quick service and we thought Pizza Planet at HS was good too for quick service. Both had great values..a lot for your money and our boys were able to share so conserve some QS for our last day there....Our TS meals last year were Coral Reef (really enjoyed with the giant fish tank), Chef Mickey (characters were good, food not so good) Yak and Yeti (just OK), Kona Cafe (enjoyed), BOMA (decent, not our favorite), and Mama Melrose (also good).This year we are trying TRex at DTD because many have said boys will love it. On our line up this year are BOG, TRex, Tutto Italia, Teppan Edo, Ohana, Sanaa (hoping for some views of the animals), and 50's PT. For a snack, the boys liked the Dole whips and the colored flavored popcorn (pre packaged). Good Luck!

Sci-fi dine in was my sons (age five) favorite. He loved eating in a car and watching the movie clips.

My kids love Whispering Canyon Cafe. They still talk about all the bottles of ketchup that were brought to our table.

My first recommendation is Sanaa at Animal Kingdom Lodge (table service). It is good food and you can view the animals while eating. It is the only restaurant you can view the animals from while eating. Go while it is light out and get a window table. If you go, get the bread service.

Other recommendations for each park would be

Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in France at Epcot (snack)

Sunshine Seasons at Epcot (quick service)

Via Napoli in Italy at Epcot (table service) only good pizza on Disney Property

50s Prime Time Cafe at Hollywood Studios (table service)

Starring Rolls at Hollywood Studios (snack)

Writers Stop at Hollywood Studios (snack)

Backlot Express at Hollywood Studios (quick service)

Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom (table service)

Flame Tree Barbecue at Animal Kingdom (quick service)

Kusafiri Bakery at Animal Kingdom (snack)

Columbia Harbour House at Magic Kingdom (quick service)

Aloha Isle at Magic Kingdom (snack) Dole Whip

Crystal Palace for breakfast at Magic Kingdom (table service buffet) if you are doing more than one day at Magic Kingdom

Whispering Canyon Cafe (table service) at Wilderness Lodge it can be really entertaining for your kids depending on the server. I would go for breakfast or lunch.

With all boys, I recommend switching your RFC to the T-Rex restaurant if they are into dinosaurs. Or a good character breakfast is Tusker House at AK.

Our favorite QS is Sunshine Seasons at Epcot.

If you're looking for a good hot dog, Casey's at the MK would be a good QS.

Agree on these table service choices.
