    I'd say it depends....what do you want to keep them occupied with? Their food? Characters? The surrondings? And how old are they?

    For instance, my 'lets who are now 15 & 9 LOVE LOVE 50's Prime Time Cafe. There are no characters, but they NEVER EVER get bored due to the interaction between the servers and the guests....they've enjoyed this restaurant since they were old enough to understand the "banter" but for younger children, it might be lost.

    Same goes for Sci Fi Dinner....this is now a MUST DO for the kids each trip....but a few years ago, my DD would tremble every time we walked by the entrance.

    For rambunctious kiddos who enjoy characters and don't mind chaos...I'd say Chef Mickey's is hard to beat.

    For ones who are a bit more reserved by still like the characters, I think Crystal Place is a lovely place to start.

    Toy Story's Pizza Planet will definitely keep them occupied, but beware.....TAKE LOADS OF QUARTERS.

    It's all about "how" you want them to be occupied :D :D

    Most restaurants will have *something* to break up the evening and entertain them...

    For instance Ohana has the coconut race and hula dance.

    Whispering Canyon has....hmmmm....can't remember now....some sort of race...all I can think of right now is being made to ride round the restaurant on a stick pony because it was my birthday :rolleyes: They also have unlimited all you can drink milkshakes...my kid's personal favorites :D

    Did we actually plan that? Or did we nix it? I wonder if we could get it Sat the 4th for lunch?

    Whispering Canyon has all sorts of antics. They threw straw at us. They made our table sing "itsy bitsy teeney weeney polka dot bikini" everytime he pointed at us. Lots of moving around of ketchup

    One of my favourite meals was at Crystal Palace i would go there over and over again.

    The Food, Atmosphere, Characters and themeing were all great.
