Favorite Magic Kingdom 1 credit table service: LTT for lunch because it's not standard park fare and ooey gooey toffee cake.

Favorite Epcot 1 credit table service: Via Napoli - It tastes good and it's quite filling.

Favorite Hollywood Studios 1 credit table service: Mama Melrose - best bang for your buck. I haven't tried 50's Primetime though. I actually really enjoyed my turkey sandwich at sci-fi dine in, but I wouldn't waste a credit out of it. It's a good out of pocket light lunch if you have heavy dinner plans though.

Favorite Animal Kingdom 1 credit table service: I've never done TS at AK, so I can't say anything here. I can eat flametree twice in one day though.

Favorite DTD 1 credit table service: I would've said Fulton's a few years ago, but I wasn't that impressed on my last visit (Jan 2012). I've had planet hollywood and rainforest cafe in the past. Meh. I think I'll try Bongos next time

Favorite overall DTD restaurant: Earl of Sandwich

Favorite Resort 1 credit table service: TIE: Trail's End for dinner or Whispering Canyon for lunch

Favorite Character Meal: Never been to one!

Favorite 2 credit or expensive restaurant: BLUEZOO! Im a big seafood junkie, and I'm pretty picky, but their fresh fish of the day floored me AND the non-seafood eater I was with. It's also a nice short break back to adult-ville (not stuffy at all though). It's the only restaurant to crack my must-do list without being aided by childhood nostalgia.

Le Cellier was good, but not great. I'm looking forward to trying Yachtsman next. I didn't care for Hollywood Brown Derby much.


Extra Bonus: What DTD night entertainment spot would you pick if you weren't a drinker? Probably Splittsville. DisneyQuest has really gone downhill in the last couple years. If you have the free voucher, it's probably worth a shot


Good luck!

Thanks everyone!

See Below:

Favorite Magic Kingdom 1 credit table service: Be Our Guest. Best of not many good T.S. restaurants in MK.
Favorite Epcot 1 credit table service: Via Napoli. Best pizza on Disney property.
Favorite Hollywood Studios 1 credit table service: Mama Melroses. Good standard Italian food.
Favorite Animal Kingdom 1 credit table service: Yak & Yetti. Fried Wonton desert.
Favorite DTD 1 credit table service: Wolfgang Puck The Cafe. Best selection and variety at DTD for 1 t.s credit.
Favorite overall DTD restaurant: Earl of Sandwich. Can not beat the quality and value.
Favorite Resort 1 credit table service: Sanaa. Good food and only restaurant you can view animals while eating at.
Favorite Character Meal: Crystal Palace for breakfast. Good food and very good character interaction.
Favorite 2 credit or expensive restaurant: NO DOUBT VICTORIA & ALBERT'S. BEST DINING EXPERIENCE IN DISNEY WORLD.

Bonus: Is the cost of Cinderellas Royale Table worth it if you don't have kids but enjoy character meals? CRT to me is not worth it because the quality of food is not worth the absorbenent price.

MK: BOG because the castle is beautiful and the food we had was quite good. Service was of course great as well.
Epcot: Rose & Crown Pub. I loved, loved, loved their vegetable pie and mash. Best thing I had all week on our last trip. Their sticky toffee bread pudding is also delish. And if you get a 7:20ish reservation and get on the back patio, they've got a great view of Illuminations.
HS: 50s Prime Time - AWESOME theming and atmosphere. It's key to get a great waiter and if you do, it will be very memorable! The meatloaf, pot roast, and fried chicken are all yummy (and I don't even like meatloaf). Really liked their cherry Sprite too.
AK: Have only done Tusker House TS here for lunch. We definitely enjoyed it.
Character Meal: Chef Mickey's for breakfast. Have heard very mixed reviews here and I'm pretty picky when it comes to food quality but my family all enjoyed this one the most, hands down (we've done 6 character meals total to date).

If you don't have kids, I do not think Cinderella's Royal Table is worth it, at least for lunch. The food was okay but not spectacular and the character interaction is no more than any other character meal.

Favorite Magic Kingdom 1 credit table service: Liberty Tree Tavern for lunch - the Colony salad is nice and light and the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is really rich and yummy.
Favorite Epcot 1 credit table service: Via Napoli - I love the arancini appetizer, proscuitto e melone pizza and the Coppa Di Brutti Ma Buoni sundae. The resturant has a nice an airy feeling and if you're seating near the ovens, you can watch them cook the pizzas
Favorite Hollywood Studios 1 credit table service:Sci Fi - Pretty good standard food and a chance to watch bad sci-fi clips
Favorite Animal Kingdom 1 credit table service: Yak & Yeti - good entrees and well themed restaurant
Favorite DTD 1 credit table service:Raglan Road - yummy scallop forest appetizer, good entrees, and one of the best desserts: Dunbrody Jaffa Kiss
Favorite overall DTD restaurant:Raglan Road - see above
Favorite Resort 1 credit table service:Boma breakfast - lots of good selection; some typical American fare, plus a few dishes with an African twist. Plus frunch is really yummy.
Favorite Character Meal:CRT - can't beat eating in the castle. The food is only okay, but the atmosphere is great
Favorite 2 credit or expensive restaurant:Narcoossee's - this is my family's favorite restaurant in WDW. We've always had really good meals and service when we've gone. I like the calamari, whole lobster, and chocolate mousse. Plus is has a pretty good fireworks view.

Bonus: Is the cost of Cinderellas Royale Table worth it if you don't have kids but enjoy character meals?I enjoyed CRT even through I don't have children with me. We still got to meet the princesses and they gave us the swords/wands! In terms of food quality, no, it's not really that good, but it's great for the atmosphere/experience
Extra Bonus: What DTD night entertainment spot would you pick if you weren't a drinker?Raglan Road - I'd tie in a dinner visit to see the Irish dancers

Thanks everyone!
