Before I read the responses, here is our best~

MK-used to be CRT (bkfst), but since they have gone 2 credit, head for a monorail restaurant.
EPCOT-LeCellier (dinner)
MGM-50's Prime Time (dinner)
AK-no ts there

Top 5 1 credit TS
Boma (dinner)
LeCellier (dinner)
Teppanyaki (lunch or dinner)
Chef Mickey's (dinner)
Kona (bkfst or dinner)

We are going to try 1 TS Chef's de France, Crystal Palace and Concourse Steakhouse after hearing good things about them. I wish 1900 Park Faire was open during our trip. We would like to try their character dining.

Good luck planning your meals!

Le Cellier, excellent steaks!
Boma, very good buffet with rather different african foods.
Ohanas, so much food and all of it top notch
San Angel, authentic (not traditional) Mexican food thats great!

Will be trying Les Chefs du France as it's supposed to be very good.

Others that are very good include Kona Cafe, Spoodles, Tony's Town Square, Concourse, Tepanyaki, Marekesh.

after MUCH research--pretty much ALL here--
we booked:

Boma
Kona
Le Cellier
O'hanas
Le Chefs
W.Pucks Cafe (just DH & I--2TS)
Narcoosees (just Mom & I--2TS)

I based this on a combo of recommendations here, as well as looking closely at the menus. We did a character meal on DCL, kids said one is enough. (PHEW!) Not buffet fans, but Boma sounds too unique to pass up.

It's nice to see quite a few of these places keep coming up!:goodvibes

There are others I would like to try...maybe our NEXT trip...:rolleyes1

Boma at AK

Boma is at AKL, not AK. Just thought I'd clarify.

I'm a little surprised Whispering Canyon hasn't come up.

Olivia's is largely unknown and very good.

Marrakesh was rather good and unique. The belly dancer was much more tasteful than I feared she might be. It takes quite an athlete to dance like that - and looks like a lot more fun than Pilates. It was a pretty fun meal.

The food in San Angel Inn isn't the best, but the location is unique.

At the PotC in Paris, they have dining a la San Angel Inn - inside the ride. I wish they had addded THAT when they redid PoTC at WDW. It was sooo cool and the food was quite good - Mediteranean seafood...Sorry about getting off topic...but it was really one of my favorite Disney dining experiences.

For MGM, would you prefer:
Mama Melrose dinner with seating for Fantasmic
-or-
50's Prime Time (don't know if has view of Fantasmic)

Fantasmic starts at 7pm in November when we are going. What time should we make reservations at Mama Melrose to see the show? (If Mama Melrose does have seating for Fantasmic.)

1. Le Cellier

Fantasmic starts at 7pm in November when we are going. What time should we make reservations at Mama Melrose to see the show? (If Mama Melrose does have seating for Fantasmic.)

In November, depending on when exactly, there shouldn't be much of a crowd issue. I would do Prime Time as our expericence at MM was little more that an Olive Garden.

Course, we could have just ordered wrong or had a bad restaurant night. It just wasn't anything memorable in either food, service or surroundings. At least Prime Time hits on all three of those areas.

MK - Tony's
AK -
MGM - Moma Melrose
Epcot - LeCellier

2. If you chose your top five 1-credit TS meals anywhere in WDW, where would they be? (In order of preference.)

We really don't do TS for lunch. We reserve the CS for lunch options.

1. Boatwrights (this is our favorite secret TS place)
2. LeCellier
3. Nine Dragons
4. Alfredos
5. Spoodles

Not on the plan but we also love Bongos and Portabellos

MGM: Prime time, though I hear Brown Derby is good but 2 TS
MK: I would go to Ohanas for Dinner with Wishes piped in. Haven't had a great TS in the MK itself, which is kinda weird.
EPCOT: Le Cellier if I could ever book it. It was down for Refurb last trip. Coral Reef has gotten much better in food and service according to some recent reviews. Many good options in Epcot IMO.
AK: Only have done Donald's Breakfasaurous. Fun but depends if you have kids or like Char meals. For Dinner there is nothing at AK to write home about, look at resorts nearby ie Boma, Jiko, Maya Grill ect.


Top 5: That we have eaten at:( Doesn't mean they are best)
1. Maya Grill (Surprisingly top notch in all areas).
2. Wolfgang Pucks
3. Whispering Canyon Cafe (just plain fun)
4. Coral Reef (Even back when the food and service was so-so......what a view, we had table side tank seats)
5. Though not in WDW Hard Rock Cafe- Their Angus hamburger thing was the BEST hamburger I have EVER had. Plus it's a cool place.

Do they have to be in parks? I don't think any of mine would be in parks.

Boma, Ohana, Raglan Road, Whispering Canyon (for lunch only), Boatwrights (for breakfast only)

My original post was a two part question. Part-1 was best in parks while part-2 was top 5 regardless of where.

Thanks for your input,

This will be our first trip to WDW and first experience with the Disney Dining Plan so sorry for the basic questions.

=====

1. On wdwinfo I see the following Wolfgang Pucks listed:
Wolfgang Puck Cafe Express
Wolfgang Puck Express
Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe
Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe-Sushi Bar
Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe-Upstairs

When folks recommend Wolfgang Puck, which resturant should we make reservations for?

=====

2. What does the Disney Dining Plan actually cover?
For instance on the Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe dinner menu I see:
Appetizers/Starter ranging from .............. $9.95 to $15.95
Soups/Salads ranging from ..................... $4.95 to $6.95
Entree/Main Course ranging from ........... $11.95 to $31.95 (for the Wolf's Steak)
Drinks ranging from ............................... $3.50 (water) to $14.25 (wine)

One selection from each category or does the 1 TS credit cover the Entree/Main Course only?

=====

Thanks!

If you do the package -- do it early -- our ADR was at 4:30 and we literally had to RUN through the park to get to Fantasmic on time. We are skipping the package this year (thanks to advice of wonderful Dis'ers) and our trying P.T.

It is 1 credit. You get 1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1 dessert, 1 non-alcoholic drink per person!! It is great. Our bill would have been over $225.00 for 5 people, the whole thing was covered on the plan!

We asked the CM who was taking our dining ADRs which one was on the DDP and she said Wolfgang Puck express in DTD is 1 CS and Wolfgang Puck Cafe in PI lower level is 1 TS.

Our favorite, hands down, is Le Cellier. I think for 1 credit, the food stands out miles over the rest of the 1 credit places.

We also liked Whispering Canyon a lot, but more for the atmosphere over the food.

Were they the best? I think so :)

I have eaten at Boma's, Planet Hollywood, 50's PrimeTime, Akerhaus and the Maya Grill for dinner and Chef Mickeys & Ohanas for Breakfast. I have done the 2TS for they Poly laui and HoopDeeDoo - both were okay, I wont do them again....

The Maya Grill was WONDERFUL - and I am suprised not to see it on anyones list. I think it doesnt get that much attention because it is in the CSR...

I am one of those people that have a hard time keeping ADR's - I cancel them (so dont beat me up)... This year I am hoping to make it to more - I have planned days out very well. We will see - we are spur of the moment people and seldom stick to any plans.
