    Some of my favorite frequents include (but never limited to):

    Garden Grill (yes, because its buffet-style -- and it rotates) <winK> at EPCOT
    Le Chefs de France (wonderful Macaroni dish) at EPCOT
    Nine Dragons (try the Duck!) at EPCOT
    Sci-Fi Diner (the most hilarious clips from the day) at MGM

    Yum,

    Let's just say I got way too comfortable in that other place and forgot that my agenda (to see Disney be as good as it can and to share my knowledge of WDW and the Co.) might clash with the agenda of the site's owners/financial backers.

    I know Al Lutz ain't taking as much as a free Stitch plush from da Mouse, so I think I'm safe here!

    Seriously, nice to see you here. A lot of familiar faces are around. I feel much more free to speak my mind here than in that 'other Place.' Please stick around.

    Great to see you here also...I am going to try and stick around -- I mean the other place is comfortable as an old shoe...but many of the discussions are getting repetitious--- and it does seem to be a much more open crowd here....and lots of familiar faces....Labuda / TDLfan / danyoung etc......I am getting use to the different format so that I can take full advantage of the formatting options here............................

    Labuda told us you were here--- so I slipped into my tafita and tiara, with DVC wand and member only jacket....and decided to give this a try....

    I jsut have to start a DVC issue to test the waters.......

    Doing my first-ever solo trip in in 45 days and going abck to both - but hoping to talk a friend into dining at V&A with me so I don't ahve to go it alone there. .
    Getting hungry ... I guess I'll be dreaming of food when I head to bed.

    BTW, Iggy, you have incredible taste in WDW dining. California Grill is superb everytime. It is one of the best resturants in Florida ... I'm tasting the tamarind BBQ filet right now!

    I need to make some PS for April. One place I must go to is Cindy's for lunch since they are about to ruin the place by adding character meals twice a day.
    Again, shows you how WDW management is running the MK like it is only for the stroller brigade and their spawn.

    ALSO, effective the first Thursday in April, Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge has a special dining experience in their private dining room. multi-ourse meal with wine, and it's $130 per person, so not quite as expensive as V&A with wine pairings. It will only be offered the first Thursday of each month, though.

    Wow... so far no one has mentioned my favorite restaraunt... Whispering Canyon Cafe!!!

    WCC is truly an amazing experience. The place is rowdy, fun, exciting and just spectacular all at the same time. Plus, the food ROCKS! The pulled pork was very very good

    Also I'd recommend Cinderella's Royal Table along with O'hanas and Restaraunt Marrakesh (try the lamb in pastry with cocoa on it, it's awesome!).

    Either way, you can't go wrong with WDW dining. :bow:

    What?! You mean there are actually restaurants that DON'T feauture character dining. I thought they changed EVERY restaurant on property to a McDonald's playplace.

    Teppanyaki on the second floor of the Japanese pavilion has great sushi. It also has one the best views of Epcot. It's quiet and small and the staff is excellent. It's a wonderful place to spend some time in especially on a hot day.

    Our favorite restaurant on-property is the Brown Derby in MGM. The food there is fantastic! Other favorites are Boma and Artist's Point. For a less expensive alternative, the cafe in the Polynesian (name escapes me) is very good also.

    I only had one bad dining experience at WDW: the Concourse Steakhouse at the Contemporary; the food was good, but overpriced, and the service was kind of mean there. But it wasn't very Disney, anyway.
    Boma: went there for my birthday with my roommates; the staff is awesome, and they gave us a special dessert tray because of the occasion, as well as a card. The buffet was VERY exotic; I'm not sure I rose to the occasion, but I'm a fairly picky eater.
    The Crystal Palace at MK: Pooh and Friends! And the food is delicious, too. I had a great time eating here.
    50's Prime Time Cafe: themed ala carte; also a lot of fun, although I didn't care for the menu very well.
    Tony's Town Square (MK): Great Italian food, and more fun than Alfredo's in Epcot. And Dirk from Alton, IL is the best server ever!
    Honestly, I think good company is the best factor at mealtime. I also had fun eating burgers at Pinocchio's Village Haus in the MK. There's no accounting for taste.

    You're gonna love the lamb and the belly dancers Big Daddy! And you really feel like you left the country when you're at Marrakesh! It is outstanding!

    Boma is a great dinning experience in a semi-buffet format. Exotic and familiar things can be found. They have 3 rotating menus. We find it exceptional.

    Another thumbs up for the California Grill! Loved it, loved it, loved it! The menu is always changing to stay "Contemporary" and we will definitely go again. If you catch the fireworks from the rooftop, they will even time your course (or dessert ) and wait for you to return to your seat.

    We also like to frequent Wolfgang Puck's Grand Cafe at Downtown Disney! The sushi bar there is supposed to be great (although I have never tried it). Below is a pic of a wonderful pumpkin spiced dessert we had there. It was soooo good, I had to take a picture! Hmmm, I am sensing a theme about myself all of a sudden! Desserts rock!

    Ok, here's some food for thought (pun intended) from a big fella' that likes his WDW food (Although not so much recently...down 10 pounds! HOO YAH!):

    1.) Liberty Tree Tavern (MK, across from Hall of Pres.) - This is one of the most overlooked restaraunts at Disney World, IMO. Not only that, but the food is consistantly delicious. The style is sit-down, traditional American dinner (and lunch...but reccommend dinner with the characters). They serve fresh roles, salad, macaroni and cheese "pie" (as we say in the south), mashed potatoes, green beans/collards, and a selection of cut meats: ham, turkey (best I've had), and roast beef/prime rib. It's all you can eat for one price of around 22 dollars (per person).

    2.) House of Blues; Orlando (Downtown Disney Westside, next to Cirqe De Soli) - A great place for lunch or dinner. Serving many dishes with a southern-Mississippi flavor. Personal favorites include the Jumbalya, their appitizer pizza (not sure of actual name), fresh cornbread w/sweet butter, Creole Chicken sandwich, and beer boiled shrimp. Also, for those who love blues, many late nights (between 10:30 pm and 1:00 am) there is a local blues band showcase in the dining room with limited menu service (like the aforementioned pizza). I really reccommend it for music lovers and night owls. Call ahead to see if any band is scheduled for that night.

    3.) California Grill (top of the Contemporary) - If more than one person reccommends it, it must be good! Has a great view of the Magic Kingdom, and they dim the lights when the fireworks start on many a night. Can't think of any food dishes names right of the top of my head but I do think that any of their chicken dishes are terrific, plus they have a great wine selection.

    4.) Mama Melroses' Itallian Restaraunt (DisneyMGM, behind Muppets 3-D in corner) - One of, if not "the," best itallian restaruants at WDW (besides Alfredo's in Epcot). Usually not bad on wait times due to its almost hidden location. Great Spaghetti, manacatti (sp?), chicken parmasian, and salads. A fun fact: The restaraunt was supposed to be Gonzo's Pandamonium Pizza Kitchen (PPK) to tie in with the Muppet 3-D show. In fact, the whole area was going to be Muppets with a 2nd attaction where the current Pizza Planet and shops are. However, the original deal to buy the muppets fell through and Disney could only secure the rights to the 3D show. However, Disney finally bought the Muppets this past November/December (I believe). There have been talks of dusting of the plans for the restaraunt and actually going through with a re-design to pull in more guests. The original design had a more interactive dining experience, with the restaruant looking like an incomplete mess (think Muppet 3D pre-show) with pipes and vents everywhere, random water shooting out, and even Gonzo himself making noise as he chases Camillia through the air ducts over your head. Hope it happens now!

    There you go...hope this helps. Need more? Just ask!
