Jiko at AKL is my hands-down favorite...never had a bad meal there.

California Grill is a very close runner up.

I'm updating my previous post having now been to more restaurants while we were at WDW in December.

We loved the Garden Grill for the character dinner. The characters spent so much time at our table - 3 times! - and we didn't feel rushed at all. We also like the Plaza Pavillion on Main Street USA and the Biergarten in Epcot. My DH loved the 50s Primetime Diner as we had a wonderful server.

WDW: O'Hana (The Polynesian) and Le Cellier (EPCOT, Canada Pavillion) are two of my favorites. For more casual fare, I like Sunshine Seasons (EPCOT, The Land) or Kona Cafe (The Polynesian).

Disneyland: The Blue Bayou used to be one of my favorites, but they have changed their policies where you can ONLY order EXACTLY what's on the menu, and they charge you to share. We found out that Cafe Du Monde (right across the way from Blue Bayou) does neither. AND I can still have my Gumbo (yum).

You can accomplish your dreams!

I have eaten at the Crystal Palace and the Garden Grill. I am planning our trip to WDW for October and will be making reservations at the Crystal Palace for a breakfast, the 50's Prime Time Cafe for my husband's birthday lunch and Mama Melrose's for dinner before the Fantasmic show all on different days.

A proposal at Disney!! That is sooo sweet!! When we were at Disney in November, a guy proposed during a dinner at Cinderella's Castle. It was so sweet. We noticed the photographer, and the guy getting down on one knee, and I think we realized what was happening before the girl did!!

This is very tough for me as I have had some amazing dining experiences in WDW.

Top of the list MUST be The California Grill. October 12th 2007 during the Hallowishes fireworks show, my finace proposed to me! Plus the food was FANTASTIC!...

Cape may Buffet at the Beach Club was fantastic asnd those oreo cookie bonbons yummy.We loved the supercalfagilistic breakfast at 1900 and the Cinderella Dinner, the only place that we were very dissappointed with was Chef Mickeys it has definitly gone down hill from what ti used to be.Tappan Edo was godd but pricey for those cheap cuts of meat.Ohanas is a great way to spend the day at the Poly pool and use the searaycers,we do it every time and of course got to have a Lapu Bowl with dinner.

I had never eaten a real meal at WDW before this last visit. Wow. We had so many good meals!

MK: The castle, Liberty Tavern
Epcot: (Tried LeCellier but didn't like it)
MGM: Primetime Cafe
AK: Yak n Yeti, Rainforest Cafe

We loved breakfast at Ohanas, but the dinner and show was only so-so.

We've only done one table service at WDW and that was the Crystal Palace and we loved it! We are going to try out the Garden Grill, Hollywood & Vine and Tuskers on our next trip as well as go back to Crystal Palace.

At Disneyland Paris we loved Annette's Diner in Disney Village and the Character Breakfast at Hotel New York was great - that might have been something to do with it being my son's 5th birthday and arranging for Minnie to bring him a birthday cake!

Mine is Garden Grill in the Land in Epcot, the food is good, but it is the memories. It was our first table service restaurant on our very first visit to WDW. We took my dear mother in law and had such a great time. Then on the second visit, it again was our only table service restaurant, that time I took my mother and the two kids that still live at home, it was our first Character meal and of course the memories. Then on our last visit we had to eat there again and Mickey and Chip & Dale made fun of Steves long hair and beard, (Steves is my daughters x bf, but parted on good terms and we consider him part of the family and even tho they had broken up by then he still wanted to come with, so he did and we all had fun, of course the bf at the time did not like it one bit)!.

Anyway, for other restaurants we super loved LeCellier, CRT and Spririt of Aloha, so much we are planning to do them all again in September.

It's amazing. . . Make your reservations early, and you can walk down Main Street with only a few others there. You can really take some awesome pictures. And if you finish before the park opens, then the park is yours. Once when we did this, the kids rode Splash Mountain twice and Big Thunder Mountain before it was time for the park to even open.

It definitely gives you that feeling that you have the entire park to yourself!!! It's truly MAGICAL!!

Breakfast before the park opens? Now that sounds interesting. What's it like?

We have stayed and had dinner late at Epcot and Animal Kingdom before and I loved that. Walking through the park after it's closed is so cool. It feels like you have the whole park to yourself and it's neat to see them so quiet and peaceful.
