So, how does it look? Any opinions regarding Yak & Yeti vs Boma & for our World Showcase dinner?
This is the least amount of ADRs I've planned in the last few trips... normally I've also got WCC, Tony's, & a dinner planned in DTD! The only one I think we might miss is WCC - but I had to drop something to add Be Our Guest.
We loved Boma!!! Even my 10 & 12 year old say it was the best meal of our trip!!
I have only had Boma for breakfast but it is my favorite!!!!!!! As for world showcase meals we love Biergarten and also Teppen Edo. My husband and I tried Biergarten for the first time last June and were hooked. We love the entertainment and the food. Of course, my husband enjoyed the beer too! Although Teppen Edo is your normal Japanese restaurant the food is good along with the food show. Hope this helps! Happy planning!!!! :)
I've never had Boma or Yak & Yeti, but we're trying Yak & Yeti this trip. We love PF Changs and it looks like that type of food. We also love Biergarten. Never tried Les Chefs.
Unless you are staying at AK or want to see the resort I would go with Y&Y leaving to eat at resorts is really a pain.
We loved Beirgarden and Les Chefs both are great.
I vote Yak and Yeti and Biergarten.
Boma is ok, but I'm not a big fan of buffets in general. Yak & Yeti is good, although last time it didn't blow me away like it has on previous visits. They do have what I consider to be one of the best desserts on property however, the Pineapple Cream Cheese Wontons. :lovestruc
Here's a pic of the wontons:
We enjoy Les Chefs for lunch, not so much for dinner. Biergarten is usually good, and the show is great, but again it's a buffet so never my first choice. We LOVE La Hacienda! We've had dinner there our last three trips and are planning to return this fall too. We love the Hacienda platter and the service has always been excellent. If you can plan a late dinner you can also enjoy Illuminations with dessert. The view through the big picture windows is wonderful! :thumbsup2
This is the Hacienda platter, it's also served with rice, black beans and warm tortillas:
Hope you have a great trip! :goodvibes
My family tends to eat a LOT, so buffets always seem to work out great for us. We definitely eat our money's worth! So, if your family is similar to ours...Boma would be a great choice. The downside for us were the choices of food. My brother (11 years old) and I (14 years old) are not the most adventurous eaters on the planet. We were both able to find more than enough things to eat, but if your kiddos are really picky...you may want to consider dropping Boma. Also, as a few other people have mentioned-transportation is a hassle. But, I remember the resort itself being AMAZING. Your kids would probably LOVE the wildlife.
Yak and Yeti is great as well. I, personally, love in-park dining, just because it is so convenient. The service was not fantastic for us...but the food was GREAT. You really can not go wrong with either.
We usually stay at BLT and don't get park hoppers. On AK day, I like to go to a dinner show. HDDR is fun and there is a boat ride from FW to CR, so it makes travel convenient. We even take the bus from AK back to CR and take the boat to FW. The bus to FW is long!
I also suggest coral reef on one of your undecided Epcot days.
Thanks, everyone, for all the suggestions!!
I'm not a huge fan of buffets, but Biergarten intrigues me! I think we'd like the food, & the entertainment sounds fun!
Another vote for Biergarten!
And another vote for Biergarten! And one for Chefs!
And, previously, I was only sort of thinking about Biergarten & really trying to decide between Chefs & La Hacienda... now Biergarten is right up there! LOL!
We have enjoyed Yak & Yeti in the past too, but, last year, it wasn't as good as the previous year. I can't eat MSG, &, 2 years ago, the chef made me this amazing beef dish w/ lots of flavor & crunchy vegetables. Last year, I wasn't as impressed. But the Yak Attack was still yummy! ;) As were those yummy wontons for dessert!
Another thing that makes me want to choose Yak & Yeti is because it's one of my DD's favorites, &, like I said, she's typically not a very adventurous eater. And she loves this restaurant!
And, like you, I'm not a huge fan of buffets, & we're already doing the breakfast buffet at Chef Mickey's & the lunch buffet at Crystal Palace. One think I dislike about buffets is how I feel like DH & I eat in "shifts" - I get my plate while he waits w/ our younger DS, & then he gets his plate & so on.... so I never really feel like we're eating together.
If I go w/ Chefs, I think I'm going to do a late lunch instead of dinner. (On that day, we're eating breakfast at Chef Mickey's.)
Again, thanks, everyone, for all the replies!!
I think I'm going to go w/ Yak & Yeti over Boma - even though I'll miss the AKL & the Zebra Domes (I don't really think anyone else in my family will though...)
And I STILL haven't decided between Chefs & La Hacienda... although the picture of the platter at La Hacienda is making me really think La Hacienda! And I'm going to show DH the buffet menu for Biergarten & try to find some pics to show him to get his input.
Thanks!! Tomorrow morning is my ADR day!! :cool1:
Eating at the WS in Epcot always has my family debating! My father loves Germany, I love Japan, my DH loves Morocco, my mom loves France and Mexico and the boys love England! Since this summer is just my DH and the boys I picked Teppan at Japan! My Dad was just there last week and of course ate at Germany which he says was just fantastic of course. Our fave place not in the WS is Jiko at AKL. That is our overall fave place to eat at Disney! Have fun picking it out!
Well, I made our ADRs this morning, & I ended up w/....
Chefs de France!!
I'm still not really sure why... I think it came down to Remy. And the fact that I've always wanted to eat at Chefs, &, since we've eaten at San Angel Inn (Mexico), I decided that this year was France's turn.
But I reserve the right to change to La Hacienda! ;)
Anyway, following are our current ADRs:
Saturday, 9/14 (Arrival Day) - 'Ohana, 6:30 pm (wanted 6:00 pm, so I'll keep trying)
Sunday, 9/15 (MK) - CRT, 5:30 pm
Monday, 9/16 (EPCOT, Future World) - Garden Grill, 5:35 pm
Tuesday, 9/17 (DHS & MNSSHP) - Sci-Fi, 12:10 pm (wanted 11:30 am, so I'll keep trying)
Wednesday, 9/18 (MK) - Crystal Palace, 11:40 am
Thursday, 9/19 (AK) - Yak & & Yeti, 4:45 pm
Friday, 9/20 (DHS) - Mama Melrose Fantasmic Lunch Package, 12:00 pm
Saturday, 9/21 (EPCOT, World Showcase) - Chef Mickey's, 9:30 am
Saturday, 9/21 (EPCOT, World Showcase) - Chefs de France, 4:30 pm (this is early for dinner, but I wanted the kids to have a chance to see Remy)
Sunday, 9/22 (EPCOT & DTD) - <no adrs planned>
Monday, 9/23 (MK) - Be our Guest, 4:55 pm (I wanted 5:30 pm, but the only other time available was 8:30 pm, so I'll keep trying!)

So that's it!! Now just to wait 6 months! And keep rethinking my decisions! LOL! :rotfl2:
