Where are your favourite places to eat?

Just in general, including the Disney Village? (lunch and dinner?) I find myself eating at the same places just because of mixed reviews of other restaurants, I worry that we'll go for something different and pay a lot of money for it and for it to be disappointing. And i'm curious to know! I personally love small places like Toad Hall for lunch, but we're tempted to try the mexican place in Frontierland and the cafe in Discoveryland.

Also, has anyone eaten at Pizza Planet? The 3 times i've been to DLP it has been closed which I was so disappointed at because I love pizza so we're thinking if it's open in October we would eat there..but i've read dreadful reviews online about bad services and there only being like 3 selections of pizza? We would go there for lunch and if I remember correctly it's quite expensive for lunch so i'm a bit worried about going if it's not very nice.

ALSO (sorry haha) what is cafe mickey like? We've not eaten there before because it was always so busy but i'm going to eat in there on my birthday this year

Many likes - favourite lunch is Earl of Sandwich in the Village. Also enjoyed Cafe Hyperion. Favourite evening meals include Annettes, Walts and Parkside Diner Buffet.

Cafe Mickey is great for character interaction. You definitely pay for this. I wasn't a great fan of their set menu (a few years ago now though) but we shared pizza and fries a couple of times which is a cheaper way to do Cafe Mickey

We really enjoyed Inventions, food was lovely even though we didn't get much due to an excitable girl. We have eaten at Rainforest Café twice, and both times enjoyed it - nothing outstanding, but good quality and tasty. Enjoyed King Ludwigs too - but this was back in 2009, didn't eat there in Feb.

When we went years back we ate at Hakuna Matata - and really enjoyed it and will possibly try it again instead of Casey's.

We go for character meals now, regardless of the food, so not really the best to offer up advice I guess!

In the past we have really enjoyed Walts and cafe mickey for main meals. For cs we like the blockbuster cafe in the studios and pizzeria belle notte in disneyland park. I'm sure I read that someone who has recently returned really enjoyed pizza planet. I can't remember who though I'm afraid.

Thankyou all for your input We usually eat at Rainforest Cafe and King Ludwigs but honestly i'm not great fans of it! I thought KL was quite average.
I love Rainforest Cafe for the atmosphere so we will probably eat there again, just wanted to try something new.

Hakuna Matata was another one I wanted to try but was a bit skeptical about it but now I may try it because I've always wanted to go there - just didn't appeal to my mother but i'll have to convince her
Belle Notte and Cafe Hyperion are other ones I wanted to try also.

Forgot to add- has anyone eaten at the Blue Lagoon Restaurant? We're a bit worried about eating there because my mother got food poisoning last time she ate fish and it's expensive but I would just love to eat as the boats go by :D

Thanks again I always like hearing other people's opinions on restaurants.

Blue lagoon gets lots of good reviews on here so we are eating there for the first time next week so will let you know what we think. They do have things on the menu other than fish. If you look at the restaurant review stickies there is an up to date menu courtesy of Carrie Cat.

We've never had the chance to try Pizza Planet either - always shut!!

I love Walts for a really nice meal, Inventions is my favourite buffet and I enjoyed the Blue Lagoon experience too, The Steakhouse is DHs favourite, and DD loves Auberge and Cafe Mickey.

DH & I both love the croque monsieurs you can get on Main Street - best fast food going IMO.

We're going to try Agrabah Cafe on our next trip (if it's open) for a change.

I love the Agrabah Cafe! It's gorgeous, when you get seated in the big tent bit it's a lovely atmosphere. And they have lovely food, so many different types to suit everyone.

I like Annette's, Restaurant Des Stars & Billy Bobs (buffet) for table service. Toad Hall for C/S but want to try EoS this time

We too wanted to do Pizza planet during our stay ( 14-18 may )
but sadly it was closed

We did Annettes Diner~My DD is a very fussy eater~but she loved
the food & cleaned her plate~So we ate there twice that week~
Must say the Brownie pud was delicious and the prices were very
reasonable.
Definately one we will be visiting again when we go back

My favourites are Walts, Inventions and Blue Lagoon. I also really liked Agrabah Cafe the time we ate there. For counter service I like Fuente del Oro, Toad Hall, Colonel Hathi's and Hakuna Matata.

This trip I'm determined we're going to try places we've not eaten at before so we're planning to go to the Parkside Diner and Cape Cod although I'll probably cave in and do Inventions but for the Sunday brunch rather than an evening meal. Also I'm looking forward to testing a DLP EoS to see if it's as nice as a WDW one!
