I agree that character meals are for everyone. My wife and I have done character meals without kids. However I won't do a princess meal without kids. As a 43 year old man that's a little creepy.

We did 3 on our honeymoon. Four if you count CRT (which didn't have characters greeting you at your table for dinner when we did it).

That said...try to keep it varied. If you're just doing one, you'll probably be fine, but I got sick of Disney buffet fare by the end of that trip.

Dinner at 1900 Park Fare was my favorite for character interaction, but the food was awful.

We've eaten at the Crystal Palace without kids,and there were several other adults-only groups around us. It was great!

My sister and I did several character meals (Crystal Palace, Tusker House, Akershus, Ohana breakfast) and we enjoyed all of them! The characters were really good about stopping at our table and interacting with us even without any kids!

I suppose my sister was technically a "kid" as she was 15 when we went, but for all intents and purposes we seemed like two adults.

We are all big kids when we go to WDW! DH and I always do at least one character meal and we love it! Character meals are for all ages and a great way to get fantastic pictures. Have a great time now it's just a decision on what character meal you want to do!

We have done several character meal before having kids. That being said, we still see many couples at character meals and even solo traveller. Go for it and have fun. I find the character interaction is way different when no kids are there.

We are adults and love character meals! We always do at least 5-6 character meals per trip.
