Please review my ADR's and I need 3 more!

We are going August 16-26th. We are a party of 9. Me, dh, our 5 boys (16, 14, 12, 7 and 5) and my in-laws. Originally it was just us 7, then we invited the grandparents.

Sat-Arrive at POR-eat at food court
Sun-50's Primetime at 4:20 (so early for us, but that is the only time I could get for 9 or us)
Mon-Rose n Crown at 5:35
Tuesday-Beaches n Cream at 7:20 (only 7 of us, as I have not been able to get 9 yet)
Wed-Kona Café at 5:20
Thursday-LLT at 11:20 for lunch
Friday-Tusker House at 8:25 but again only 7 of us, I have been able to get 9 yet. I am also on the fence with this one, as we are not big eaters at all especially breakfast, we would do this for characters.

I still need Saturday, Sunday and Monday, preferably supper. We are not picky except dh is not a fan of Italian/Pasta type food.

We are paying OOP for everything. No dining plan.

Any idea what parks you might be visiting those days (or not in a park at all)? That could heavily influence suggestions.

But as a general rule, Whispering Canyon Café and 'Ohana would be good options for boys (although my girls like them both, too). Biergarten at Epcot might also be fun with a group that size.

Are you interested in Character meals? Maybe Chef Mickey's or Garden Grill? Are you going to HS? Sci-Fi looks fun!

I second Teppan Edo ... and the need to know which parks you're thinking about. Did I miss it, or are you looking for lunches or just dinners?

Maybe something at AKL or Kidani - fun resort to explore....

Or something at DTD - Raglan Road, maybe?

Two of our favorites are Boma at AKL and Cape May at the BC.

This might be to 'plain' for you guys but we LOVE The Plaza at MK. when we go we usually dine around 430-5ish. My favourite for some reason is the turkey club with they kettle chips and the banana split!

Like someone else asked, were you interested in character meals? or even just a buffet without the cost of the characters maybe? If yes to the last option, then I suggest Trails End Resturant at the Campsites! Around 5 seemed like a great time to go for me! I just kept filling my plates and always say more things that i wanted on my way to sit back down.

Ok a bit more information:
We are staying on property. We have hopper passes, so we will go to whatever park we are eating at or around that evening. So not worried about that.

We have been before and have done: Crystal Palace for breakfast, Cinderella's Castle for dinner in 2005 so I know it was no princesses and different menu, Ohana's, Garden Grill, 50's Primetime, Teppan Edo, Tony's Town Square, LLT for supper, Coral Reef, Marrekesh (in 1995), I know there are a few more just can't recall. Now for Ohana's, we did not love it, we were rushed, and the meat was fairly dry. Again we are not buffet or all you can eat type people, because we just don't eat enough food to justify the costs in most places and I just don't enjoy buffets in general, so I am trying to stay away from that.

We love new things and dh will do an Italian if that is what I book, just not high on his list. We have never done: Rose n Crown, Kona, Tusker House or Beaches n Cream (although I booked this for the kitchen sink, lol).

We have small kids and do a lot of character dining so I am not a lot of help, but ones that I am super excited for on our next trip is Ragal Road(DTD) and Beirgarten(Epcot). Both have live entertainment and supposed to be a lot of fun. If your boys are into dinosaurs T-rex (DTD) may be a good choice.

If your are not sold on Tusker house, Chef Mickey or Garden Grill might be good alternative.
