We've done CP and he is now "all set" with Pooh characters. We enjoyed TH already, so we'd like to try something else. It will be him, DH and I plus my parents. We would probably prefer and lunch or dinner over breakfast. Since we are paying out of pocket I would really like the food to be pretty good also lol.
I was thinking of 1900 PF dinner. I think DS would think the sisters are funny and the food sounds like it is pretty good.

DS on his first trip! January 2008 Windsor Hills
DS10 enjoyed Chef Mickey on his 7th birthday although we did breakfast. I thought the breakfast there was pretty good and none of us left hungry. We all enjoyed Garden Grill interaction last year. I thought the food was just OK but DBF Loved it all. I'm a very picky eater so take that with a grain of salt. I thought the character interaction was well worth our time and the price.
Garden Grill or possibly Tusker House or Cape May for Breakfast
We went there for the first time in Dec 2010, the girls were Seniors in High School. We had done 1900 Park Fare a few night before and told me "no more character meals, we are too old for this stuff." I forgot Garden Grill was a character meal until a few hours before Ressies. They said they would put up with it since it was Mickey. They loved it - the food and characters. It has become a family favorite.
Last Summer we took some friends to WDW with us, It was thier first time. the little boy was 8. And absolutely loved dinner at Garden Grill! We did eat later at Tusker House for dinner. I know dinner is not character, but he said that was his favorite place to eat all week.
A couple of weeks before we went, some friends went for the first time and celebrated their son's 9th b-day with breakfast at Cape May. He loved it as well.
My nephew was 17 when we took him to 1900 Park Fare - and he loved it!!
The dinner entertainment is stupendous, and since there are rarely a ton of boys there, they make over them like crazy! The stepsisters got into a "fight" over my nephew - and they did that for almost every boy there was in the place.
I say go for 1900 PF. I honestly think Chef Mickey's is way too over-rated.
