As many have mentioned, everyone has a different opinion..

Le Cellier Signature Dinner (definitely not worth signature status and me and DH got sick)

Chef Mickey's - I searched for months for this ressie and food wasnt anything spectacular and after an hour we left the restaurant without seeing ANY characters because they had not made it to our room...this was at 730am

Tony's Town Square - food was awful...if you want good italian do Via Napoli or Tutto!

On a different note, We LOVED Hollywood and Vine for breakfast. We were an early ressie so it wasnt all that messy...typical buffet food but not awful...and the character interaction was great (although DD is 2 so it was perfect for her age group)

The only place I truly regret is ABC Commissary. I had the Cuban sandwich and it was dreadful! Will not go back.

I was also disappointed in Chef Mickeys breakfast. As mentioned, location seems to key, and we're two time losers! Both times we were a hike from the buffet and in the no man's land for characters. Probably won't go back until future grandchildren are born, which better be some time from now!

For us it was 50's Primetime Cafe....bad food and worse service.It was disappointing because we were looking forward to it after reading the great reviews. The other was Whispering Canyon Cafe. We gave it 2 tries and both times we had waiters that were not into the WCC antics. The second time we also were served raw chicken. Both of those are off our list.

After a dozen plus visits to Chef Mickey's for dinner, we will no longer to there. It is a mess, the food is cafeteria grade, and the characters just go through the motions. What a shame!

We also do not like the Flying Fish - overpriced, and the portions were skimpy and the food nondescript.

Final MAJOR disappointments were Citrocos and the Grand Floridean Cafe. The food was barely edible. The price over the top. Never again.

That said, we have eaten at almost all the restrurant in WDW, and we like most of them although they are rarely a good value for the money. We don't use the dining plan (eat breakfast and some lunches/dinners in our DVC villa by choice). I have sort of gotten in the habit of ordering an appetizer/soup and salad for dinner. It is usually plenty. If I am still hungry, I get a dessert.

My family loves Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana, and I think these are the 2 restaurants with the most mentions above. I have to say of Chef Mickey's, we did have one pretty bad experience there, but all of our other dinners were great fun, and we have found the food ranging from good to almost great (I love the beef with horseradish sauce and the mashed potatoes)! We also had a very good experience at Coral Reef last summer, and Cali Grill was one of our best dinners ever!

The only CS place we wouldn't return to is ABC Commisary, and the only TS place we didn't like was WCC. We didn't expect much from ABC Commissary, since it frequently gets slammed here, but we thought "how bad could it be?" Well...terrible! And WCC (the skillet) was just yucky!

Biggest regrets: Chef Mickey's. We tried dinner and didn't like it at all. We decided next trip to try breakfast. Better, but not by much. I don't think we'll be going back. Maybe with a first timer that's 'dying' to go.
ABC Commisary might well be the worst food I've ever had, not just at WDW, but anywhere in the world

I also had the cuban sandwich a couple of years ago. I took one bite and spit it out into a napkin. I couldn't believe how bad it tasted and like an idiot I did not belive my tastebuds and took another bite. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the most miserable thing I have ever tasted.

Well maybe not the worst, I did a dare for $50 bucks back in college years ago to eat a live gold fish, that was pretty bad. Then again, slap some cheese on it and place it on a bun and I bet it would taste better than the cuban sandwich.

The only place I would truly never eat at again would be 50's PTC. I was so excited about this place. And found the server really rude- even to my kids but not in a funny way. And not sure if it was the food or Grandma's Punch but I was seriously sick from the moment I finished my meal for the rest of the trip- and it was a looooonnggg 11 night trip. Had dizziness, severe nausea to the point where I could barely stomach anything. So much for the Free DDP!!! So much food going to waste

It could have been a GI virus but the timing was just too uncanny and coincided exactly with this one meal NEVER again

Only true regret was the counter-serve place at Japan in Epcot. Ordered some beef stuff over rice and it was mostly a pile of fat over rice. Reminded me of The Simpson's episode where they briefly show the store-room of the school cafeteria with boxes labeled "Grade F Meat (mostly farm animals)."

We keep getting lost in the ADR system at Cape May and have had a few 30-40-min. waits in a row. I keep saying never again, but the food is just so darned good there...

Whispering Canyon

This place is amazing! One of the best I have eaten at! The expirience is so cool and the food is good. Ask for the server with the name M T Wallet she was fabulous! Dont forget to ask for more Ketchup! You will see why!

Le Cellier

Ate here a few years ago the prime rib was excellent and the ambiance is fantastic!

Grand Floridian

I assume you mean the cafe and if you do you cant miss this place. We eat lunch there every time we go and everything is great. Fairly priced and good food and its beautiful inside.

Hope you have a great trip! Headed there July 13th myself!
