Is Confisco's Grill still worth eating at without the characters ?



I had planned to eat lunch at Confisco's and Mythos my 2 days at Islands of Adventure. Now after hearing there are no characters at Confisco's I would consider changing to another restaurant if there is a better choice. Please note I am more interested in theming and something to see than the food itself.


It is the best restaurant in a theme park that I have ever been to.
The Character lunch was just a bonus
Just had lunch at Confisco's today. Wonderful waitress and the food was excellent. My DD is a picky eater and she really enjoyed her burger. I had the spring rolls and the cheese and crab appetizer. Excellent! So was the wine I enjoyed with my meal so now I have to take a nap before hitting the parks tonight.
I missed this one. Confisco's is no longer doing the character lunch? From everything I read these seemed to be really well received.

I have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Confisco's. It's a shame they're not offering up the characters but the food and the value is still good considering it's inside of a park!

A lunch without character's is no fun at all? why did they do it? is it a coast saving move or just a dumb move? I was oh so looking forward to my character lunch. Loved them at WD might have ti change my trip and ditch Universal and Islands of Advent for Disney character meals. :mad:

Can anyone give me information on the character dinner. Which characters are there and where is the restaurant?
We have never been to IOA and I am trying to plan our trip .
There will be 11 of us, including 7 children ages 3-10 if anyone can give tips. I am very disappointed to hear about the character lunch being cancelled. My boys love spiderman and after reading all of the posts I was looking forward to seeing him.
Sorry to hear no more character lunches! We had a great lunch there last November...awesome food (wasn't thrilled with the desserts though). And the characters were wonderful. Too bad. (But, yes...I'd go back for the food.)
