Dine with an Imagineer for Kids?

Hey guys how would the Dine with an Imagineer experience be for a 9 and 10 year old? I try and do something special with my brothers every trip and its the 9 years olds birthday and her REALLY wants to be an Imagineer. I thought it would be pretty cool but I do not know if they would find it boring?

Probably.

Dine with an Imagineer is awesome for adults and teens, but entirely dependent on what specific field the Imagineer is in and the group's interest in that, and the Imagineer's ability to engage everyone in conversation.

There is nothing to look at, just stories and conversation among the parties. I've attended quite a few, and often there is a child in the 9-12 range whose parents are treating them to a special event - and almost always this poor kid is watching the people in the park walking around outside the window while the rest of the group chats. I have seen a couple of kids in that range who got involved and seemed to really enjoy it, but not many.

Yeah, I really think it has to do with the kids having an almost romantic notion of what an Imagineer does - as many adults do too - and the reality of the education, training, putting in dues, and actual work involved in imagineering is less interesting
