  • Fine Dining recommendations

    So with 7 days of the dining plan, I need your top 7 pics for our "fine" dining choices.

    Particularly helpful to include at least one per park.

    We are definitely going to do O'hana at least once.

    Also, how about 7 pics for counter service?

    We will probably do 2 days at each park, but maybe
    2 Epcot
    2 Magic
    2 Animal
    1 Hollywood (not much to see here and not our favorite park)
    1 ?

    As for fine dining Le Cellier at Canada in Epcot is GREAT. For counter service try Flame Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom.

        Tusker House is no longer counter service.

          Re: Fine Dining recommendations

          Restaurants I personally like very much:

          Teppan Edo
          Boma
          Ohana
          Yachtsman
          Trails End (NOT fine dining)
          Liberty Tree Tavern for lunch
          Kona Cafe
          Raglan Road
          Yak and Yeti is decent too
          Tusker House buffet has had pretty good reviews

          I wasn't happy with my Le Cellier experiences in September (after many, many years of enjoying it).

          Counter service:

          Pepper Market
          Pop Century
          Sunshine Seasons (if on the dining plan)
          The Mara
          DisneyQuest Express (Cheesecake Factory - Yummy!)
          Earl of Sandwich
          Wolfgang Puck Express
          Cookes of Dublin

                I definitly agree with O'hana and Le Cellier at EPCOT for fine dining.

                For counter service I'd recommend Sci-Fi Dine-In at MGM. I mean, Hollywood! We had a fabulous waiter and the movie clips were funny.

                  I am not sure that most restaurants here would really be "fine" dining, not fancy anyway. Fine would be more like the California Grill and Brown Derby. But there are a lot of nice restaurants on Dis property.

                    Totally agree with you....my favorites! California Grill is top notch in my opinion!

                      It's been a while since I have been! I did go to the Brown Derby for the Imagineer lunch, and the food was very good. Presentation was fantastic, it was hard to eat something so beautifully prepared.

                        I put a word in for Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. It's such a fun place.

                        Boma at the AKL is a great place too.

                          Le Cellier was my most favorite dining experience at WDW. If you can get reservations, I say go for it. The service and food were better than anywhere else we ate on our trip.

                          I wouldn't waste my time on California Grill again. The food was ok, but lukewarm. Service was horrible! It was by far the worst service we had at WDW from any Cast Member. The guy was a total snob. The bartender sucked at making drinks too.

                          Table Service I would do again:
                          Le Cellier
                          Chefs de France
                          Sci-Fi Dine In
                          Rose & Crown (the pork tenderloin was so good, but the salad stole my heart)
                          Jiko - sit at the Cooking Place

                          Counter Service I would do again:
                          Earl of Sandwich
                          Flame Tree BBQ
                          Boulangerie
                          Tangerine Cafe

                          We had drinks at Flying Fish on the Boardwalk and the food looked good.
                          Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
                          I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



                          May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

                          NO GOATS!

                            You never know on servers. When I dined in September, I had a pretty bad server at Le Cellier for dinner (friendly, but not good at waiting tables) and then a fantastic one for lunch there. Neither meal was anything to write home about - not if I wanted to write something nice. Well, except for the 2nd server, he was truly exceptional.

                            My very worst server anywhere was at Artist Point about 10 years ago. Yesterday we had a nice but inefficient server at the Liberty Tree. Also a very good server at Yak and Yeti on Tuesday. But you never know - it doesn't matter the restaurant, you can get good and bad service anywhere. I ended up with a free meal over the Artist Point experience, I almost didn't go back because I didn't want a repeat performance.

                            And you can get a bad meal anywhere. I'll wait for quite some time before going back to Le Cellier. Maybe after they change chefs again.

                              Nobody has mentioned "Jiko" at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. This is one great restaurant. And the food is certainly top notch. They have the best wine list in all of North America. Many awards for this superb restaurant.

                              We had a great evening at Contemporary but that may be because we were seated in the wine room. Fast service and attentive staff. We had a great view of the Electrical Water pagenat and then, of course, the Wishes fireworks over MK.

                              And Flame tree BBQ when you're in AK. Make sure you go right to the tables at the bottom by the lily pond. Wonderful atmosphere and lotrs of exotic birds.
