Magic Kingdom----Tony's but I think after February it might change to Be Our Guest

Epcot----This one is tough.....I am going to go with Via Napoli but I also like the Garden Grill.

DHS------Sci fi Dine In...... best milkshakes

Animal Kingdom-----Loved Tusker House breakfast but have to say Yak and Yeti serves a mean lunch.....really good drinks.

Resort------used to be Whispering Canyon Cafe.....after the menu change...never again....Now it is Ohana for dinner. We are doing Chef Mickey's for the first time this year so it might change. I also really enjoyed the Turf Club at Saratoga Springs Resort.
