Well, I’m 19, and I still LOVE character dining (still waiting for a Peter Pan one :peterpan:… I could never imagine a Disney vacation at any age without Character Dining! haha. :wub:
But anyways lol, my family which consists of kids ages 2-6 and 19-27 always do the Spirit of Aloha dinner show. Now, again I know it’s not actually character dining, but it is a dinner show and the young ones and the older ones alike really love it.
There’s also Chef Mickey, but again, I think that is aimed for like 10 and under. ( and Mickey lovers alike!) All of the character dinings are sort of the same interaction wise. Akershus (which is princesses) is reallly laid back and not embrassing at all. But again, I know you mentioned your boys wouldn’t like the princesses dining. But, in my opinion Akershus isn’t as, “girly” per say as Cinderellas dining is.
Hopefully that helped. Sorry I don’t know about Mickeys BYBBQ. I’ve never done it. The Land has a character dining that may something you are interested in. Thats a pretty laid back character dining experience.
