That's the good thing about Disney: there are so many choices and, while it might not be right for you, it's right for some. Heck, even Tony's has some people who champion it (cough, my DH, cough, cough). What's right for some isn't right for all. I'm sorry that you didn't find something for your family; my DH loves Garden Grill because he likes the variety that they bring out to the table and their willingness to just bring out more of one or two things. Not all kids eat veggies so I'm not surprised to see that there are no veggies on the kids platter. However, since most kids come with at least one parent (and this restaurant is all you care to eat), and the servers probably expect that the kids will get some food off of their parent's plates.

For sure!!

And at the end of the day, you're still at Disney so how bad could it be?

We were there in August. Everything was great: food, service, character interaction, etc.

A bad day at Disney is better than a good/decent day at home.

We've always enjoyed our meals at the Garden Grill. We were there last week and the food was hot and plentiful. We always find the characters to be very interactive there.

Thanks so much!
We loved it! We went for the characters (and being into Land-my kids love that ride! But it seriously had to be the best meal we ate at all of the world! Very simple, very fresh, very wholesome food, lovely salads, ability to refresh anything we liked, loved the dessertS! We had some of the best character interaction there- they seemed to take a lot more time at each table then we had at chef mickey's. WE jut went last September. I don't know why everyone is complaining, but there are always the chance it was an off day, new chef, etc!

It was hands down our favorite meal last week! The restaurant is beautiful, very relaxing (especially for a character meal). Chip and Dale spent the most time with us than at any other character meal we did, Chip even colored with our little boy for awhile. The food was VERY good. The ouside booth seat is nice to sit in and I would recommend requesting that.

The three of us all vote it as our favorite meal during our 9 days at Disney with Tusker House (both breakfast and dinner) being a close second.

And the kids meal came with broccoli, so kids do get a vegetable. They will bring out more of anything, so we all ate some kid and some adult items.

The topping on the tilapia was incredible.
