I don't think we've ever really regretted a dining experience at WDW with the exception of Yakitori House in Epcot. We had eaten there several times before & loved it but the last time, we ending up throwing away most of our food because we just couldn't eat it. I guess everyone has different tastes. My kids, who are now teenagers, still love the buffets with or without characters.

At this point, a few come to mind. These are the restaurants that we wished we never even tried. We didn't like the quality of the food or the food choices.

Crystal Palace
Tusker House
Garden Grill
Prime time Cafe
Hollywood and Vine


There are others that we don't like (such as Chef Mickey's), but was glad we tried it at least once - so no regrets.

LTT--1st time decent last time we went food cold, server acted annoyed to even have to serve us. Will NOT be going back.

Rainforest Cafe in the AK- again 1st time was good...last time we went they weren't busy and food took forever, not very good, server completely forgot we were even there.

Both happened on same trip during a not so busy time . Everywhere else we ate during that trip was great especially 50's Prime Time .

Won't go back -

Fall of 2010 -
Boma for dinner - carved meats were too dry to eat (ham & beef) literally; ribs were tough. Breakfast was good, but never could take the wait for an omelet - ate breakfast there 3 times & gave up every time - s o o o o s l o w!

50's Prime Time - Meatloaf dinner - portion so small it looked lost on the plate; meatloaf had texture of wet cardboard & tasted like I assume wet cardborad tastes. Just a few drips of gravy on the mashed potatoes & meatloaf, making it even drier. The shakes were good!

Nine Dragons circa 1999. The food was inedible and birds kept flying in and around the dining room.

There are a few that I did not care for but I wouldn't say regret with the exception of one:



ABC Commissary

The most miserable, horrendous, pathetic, terrible, and disgusting place I have ever paid $$$ to eat at, anywhere. Exaggerating, NO. What I can't believe about this place is I was dumb enough to chalk it up to a bad day and the following year give it another try........ I can assure you there will not be a third times a charm. The only thing I use this place for is the restroom and a Diet Coke in the air condition.

Artist Point

Artist Point by far is the worst overall meal I have had anywhere not just WDW. Food was awful. Wife had the only vegetarian option as we asked if there was anything else and were told no. First time that has ever happened. It was the House made Sweet potato Gnocchi it was sticky and overcooked. I had the beef tendeloin the worst steak I have had on property. We would have said something if our server had come back to our table. I had to flag down a floor manager to have steak refired and then still was not proper. Still had to find our server for our bill. It was early not busy at all. This was last week.

Sorry to hear that about Artist Point. It's currently my second favorite signature restaurant, but I've had some disappointing meals there (in 2008 and early 2009 though). Sad to hear that they would serve food like that, and the service should've been better.

I've had good and not great dishes almost everywhere at Disney, so I expect inconsistency. But the only place I actually regret choosing is Coral Reef. I've been there twice over the past year, and it's disappointed me each time. I think it's one of the most overpriced Disney restaurants anywhere (along with mediocre food quality), so I wish I hadn't wasted my time by giving it a second chance.

Same as you. We were seated in front of the aquarium in the corner. The only place you can see the old turtle. The only place I think you can take a picture of it! Server not friendly, to noisy, food to salty ... bad dinner:

For me, Rose and Crown. Not that there was anything wrong with it, the food was cooked alright (warm though, not hot) and the server was the best we had in the entire vacation but for two foodies like my boyfriend and I, for the best descriptive word we could come up with to be "meh" that says a lot. I recommend it as something to try once, just don't expect to want to go back again and again.

I also will never go back to O'hana. The last time I was there I was 12 and the kids drove me nuts doing the coconut races and being referred to as my "cousins"..... and I was the age of the kids they WANTED doing the stupid coconut races. As an adult I can't bring myself to dine here. I think it's a loud, obnoxious holding ground for people who are tired of making their kids behave in public and wanting to give them a chance to get their sillies out. I appreciate that there is a place like this though, and am sure I will be dining here when I have kids who need to hula-hoop during meals.

Tony's Town Square...twice.

We ate there several years ago and the food was not good. Service was terrible too.

Decided about 10 yrs later to give it another try. The service was better but the food was worse.

Never again.

The Luau dinner show. I was warned but thought it would be a fun evening. Long wait to get in, and then the food is served as quickly as possible, and not good food at all.
It was like the servers were in a race and had to sling out the food as fast as possible. Terrible service, bland food, crowded tables, herded in like cattle. Never again.
