Looking to hear all about your favorite family style of buffet restaurants. We do the dining plan, but I really prefer to take the kids to these types of restaurants, since I am not a big fan of the kids menus. This way they atleast get some variety! So...let's hear it :)

We enjoy the following:

Crystal Palace-food not our favorite, but love the atmosphere and character interaction with our DD

1900 Park Fare-the food was great there, but the character interaction was not anything like we expected (in a bad way)

Garden Grill-loved everything about it, can't wait to go there again

Where is Little Einstein's Buffet?

At Disney-MGM Studios. The restaurant is Hollywood and Vine. They only have the characters at breakfast and lunch.

We've tried several.

My kids' favorite is Chef Mickey's. It's my least favorite.
My DD's favorite is Crystal Palace. It's in the middle for me.
My two favorites are 'Ohana and Boma--for different reasons.
DH's favorite is 'Ohana.

On our upcoming trip, we'll be again at CM, CP, and 'Ohana. We nixed Boma because it was a hassle to get to last time, but I hope to return there on our next trip.
