Favorite Dining in WDW?

Due to circumstances beyond our control it has been a while since we've been to WDW, but may be able to plan a quick trip the end of next month.

Curious to know what are some of your favorite restaurants now, (park or resort)?

When you plan a trip, what restaurants are a "MUST" now? And any feedback on the newer restaurants or those that updated (ie. BOG, Bistro de Paris which is now called something else or even La Hacienda, etc).

Via Napoli is our fav. We also like Coral Reef. Chefs and Rosecrown.
BoG was great for both lunch and dinner. We had the steak sandwich for lunch. Easily shared. Save room for dessert! Dinner we had the steak again. Cooked perfectly.
Beasts castle is amazing!

Agree with PP on Via Napoli. But my absolute fave is Tony's. We sit out in the atrium. Try to get a window seat and just people watch. I also really like Tusker House. We always went for lunch but find the characters to be a bit of a distraction. I really like the food. We also loved Whispering Canyon Cafe but now with the menu change we won't be going back. With everyone getting basically the same food it left little to be desired. Just another seat them stuff them and move them out experience at Disney.

Hi Ro Z - just wondering about BOG. I know it is quick service and doesn't take reservations at lunch, how long did you wait?

HI!
We were lucky enough to stumble upon a preview day in Nov. They weren't announcing that it was open so we had no wait. We didn't try again in Dec when it was officially open. Sorry I can't help!

I am here right now and Monsieur Paul (formerly Bistro de Paris) was surprisingly good. It remains a quiet elegant restaurant and although on the Dinjng plan, it was intimate and adult. And I love that an Amuse Bouche was included.

Bluezoo remains a favorite; the only restaurant I've hit on all 3 WDW vacations this year. For fish, there is no better place. For a mixed drink, there is no better place.

We have dinner at BOG on NYE. I look forward to a new place.

Our must-do's are Biergarten in Epcot and 50's Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios. We liked the Crystal Palace in MK and are trying breakfast for our next trip instead of dinner. Have also heard great things about 1900 Park Faire in Grand Floridian so I am excited to try that - heard the character interaction is great! I personally like the BOG lunch menu better than dinner, so we will be doing a quick service meal there.

I have mixed feelings. The restaurant is beautiful. Really beautiful. We were seated in the music box room which is not normally used for dinner. I was glad because the other rooms were very noisy. We walked through the other dining rooms to check out the decor.

There was 3 of us. I had the pork chop, one had the salmon and one had the steak. The steak was not that good, the pork chop was decent, the salmon was nice. We got 3 different desserts too. I know I had the passion fruit and it was the favorite of the 3. The grey stuff was fun-served for the birthday girl in our party.

I thought the food was better than I had expected. The service was terrible. Although our server was very friendly it took 45 minutes after she cleared our plates to bring our bill. The music box room is a long way from the kitchen so I know she had long walks but that's a long time to wait for a bill.

I will go again. I hope the service is just growing pains. The food was pretty good for park fare. The wine was awful (we each got a different one) but I figured they don't want anyone enjoying it too much anyway!!!

I've been hearing lots of mixed reviews at BOG dinner and am more likely to try lunch there first before we go for the dinner. I usually try to stay away from the really new restaurants until they work the kinks out. Thanks for your input.

Disney has several places I thoroughly enjoy, but the only place I legitimately crave is Ohana. Between the unbelievable chicken and steak, the noodles, the peanut sauce, and the warm caramel on dessert I would be lying if I haven't planned an entire weekend trip around a dinner at Ohana's.

Atmosphere

Great Service

Amazing wine list

The Food.....they are serious about the food here. My DH and I are filet people. He says it's the best filet he has ever had. You can taste the oak in the steak!

Wish I was going there tonight!
