On the flip side I did eat there once also when another family brought in their kids and what looked like a nanny with them. In the dining room, the kids broke the mood with the crying and louder behavior. I could see others put off and yet some other older people smile at the young kids while leaving. Eventually the nanny left with the kids and all was fine afterward. Not sure if the people just got the subtle hint that this restaurant wasn't really the place for young kids, or if they might have been asked to try and tone things down with the kids?
In closing....I'm all for the announced change! At least now it is known of expectations while dining there, and one restaurant out of the many Disney has to not allow kids of young age really isn't that bad. Why not market it? There are some people that do visit Disney without young kids or kids at all!
there is a restaurant in new york that banned kids, and people were all fired up. i think certain types of restaurants should be no kids. i mean, when my wife and i finally go out on a date, we get a sitter and go to a fancy restaurant. and sure enough, there was a crying baby.
its not like i went to Denny's and expected no kids, it was a place that charged a good $80+ a meal. so i feel some type of restaurant would benefit more financially if customers knew there were no kids allowed.
I am totally for asking them to finish up and leave! It would be nice, but probably not feasible for dining areas seperate from others for adults with no children. Hey, I love kids and it's not the kids that upset me in this situation. It's the parents completely ignoring the situation like it doesn't exist that really irritates me!
Besides, what's the big deal...Palo on the Disney Magic has always had a no children policy - I think you have to either be 18 or 21 to enter. Bottom line is if someone is paying that much for a dinner then a little common sense needs to be employed.
