When the kids were a bit younger we had great success with Crystal Palace. lately we do way more counter service than table service and often visit the CS in world showcase's Mexico, Noodle Station, and Peco's Bills. And Beaches and Cream is a must everytime. We split two burgers between us to save room for ice cream!
So, not very original, and places I think you've already enjoyed.
Good question, though!

I have never once eaten at the noodle station. It is NEVER open when we go. It looks good and I would love to try it sometime!
We are pretty much counter service type people, but when we are hot and tired, it gets frustrating to be either the adult at the table with three hungry kids or the adult in line trying to carry food and drinks for 5. I would like to try a few more TS meals on our next trip.
Ever tried either the Sci Fi Dine In or 50's primetime cafe at the Studios? Sci Fi is really fun, you eat in an old time convertible car while you watch really cheesy sci fi (not scary) movies on a big screen.
Primetime is set up like a kitchen from the 50's. Old tv shows play on tvs all through the restaurant and the servers treat eveyrone (includiing adults) like children. (ie "elbows off the table' "finish your veggies" and if you eat everything you get a "clean plate award" where they hold up your plate and the people eating clap and cheer for you.
Of course most of the character meals are great too, but I thought that was sort of obvious so I went with the two above. Both restaurants are really good with kids and a lot of fun.
It's not "fine" dining, but the plaza restaurant is TS and has just a varied, regular food and sandwhich menu. Nothing fancy, but the best malts in teh world and a cool place to rest!
If you can get a window table, it's got a grat view of teh castle!
Any place in Disney, with the exception of V&A, will tolerate children. It is Disney after all.
I have a story about this. We took our DS to Artist Point on our last trip (he was 9 mo). Earlier in the day, 3AM early, we were in the Celebration ER with his first of many ear ached. He slept all day and the fever dropped so we kept our ressies. I mentioned to the CM at the podium that he since he was a little fussy to feel free to stick us away in the corner. The CM said not to worry as this is after all Disney and kids are part of it.
So do not worry about the place. If it is a place you want to go to, go. Granted, some are more fun then others (WCC, 50's, Sci-Fi) but you will see kids of all ages in all resturants, except V&A's.
"I am not a baby! I have a pension!"
"We want cake! Where's our cake?!"
"The sea monkey has my money."

Keep them coming people.
Nono - sometimes I like to get away and that restaurant sounds great.
Matt - I know we can go pretty much anywhere, but I am only comfortable under reasonable conditions. My kids are actually pretty good, but when they get tired, hot and cranky - watch out! I don't want to ruin YOUR dinner with my children, so I do watch where we go.
When they are all a bit older, they will be fine.
BTW mar - we had done Sci-Fi a couple of years ago. That would be a good revisit for our next trip.
I have heard good things about the 50's Primetime Cafe as well.
We did the Brown Derby last Christmas because I had to try that Cobb Salad. However, this is one of those places which I know tollerates childen well, but I wasn't comfortable with my young ones there. The food was amazing but we will have to put it on the back burner for a while.
