I leave for Disney on Sept 28th. The reservations I have made so far are
9/28 - Dinner at Bongo
9/29 - Dinner at Marrakesh
9/30 - Dinner at 50's Primetime
10/1 - Dinner at Kona Cafe
10/2 - Dinner at Raglan Road
10/3 - Dinner at Coral Reef
10/4 - Dinner at LaHacienda

I originally had a reservation for Portabello in DTD which I cancelled for Bongos. Was this a mistake?

I haven't eaten at Bongos in many years, but when I did I remember it being very good.

I have not eaten at Bongo's, but my husband has. He said it was good. But we have both eaten at Portobello, which we both think is good, too. Reviews at allears, says Bongos gets a 5.35/10 and Portobello gets a 7.67/10. So if it were me, I'd dump Bongo's.

We ate at Portobellos in June, and will eat there again on Nov, if that helps.

Guess I'll be checking to see what is available for Portabello reservations :) Another possibility is canceling Coral Reef because I keep hearing horrible reviews.

My suggestion......keep what you have and try for yourself! We love Portobello's and its a must do for us, never eaten at Bongos as the atmosphere doesn't grab us. Also, we had a less than good meal at Coral Reef but it could have been an off night. Everyones experience and preferences are different. Since you made these I would stay with them ....who knows you may love them both! let us know

I would suggest keeping what you have, as others have said. Everyone has their own expectations and experiences.

While most people rave about Portabello, I had a horrible experience and will NOT return. And while most people have negative reviews about Coral Reef, I loved it and can't wait to go back in 50 days.

To each their own. No one has the same tastes and standards. Figure out what YOU like based on yours, not based on what others say.

I would try for Portabello. We were at Bongos in May, and thought it was only fair, not anything to write home about. We were celebrating my dd's birthday and this was her pic, as she loves Cuban food, but she was disappointed in the quality of the food, though she did enjoy her Iron Beer, LOL.
