It varies depending on your budget, your ages and your time! Here is what we like:

For Epcot: Sunshine Seasons for CS. Good food, decent prices and something for everyone. If you enjoy Mediterranian food, Tangerine Cafe is great.
I adore Biergarten for TS. I'm usually not one for buffets, but if you like German food, you will LOVE this one.

For MK: Columbia Harbor House and Cosmic Rays for CS. Rays has the burger/bbq thing going on. CHH has an AWESOME tuna sandwhich, great salads, fish & chips, nuggets, etc. Nothing beats breakfast at the castle if you can afford CRT! The Crystal Palace is an enjoyable buffet. Frankly, I'm not big on TS at MK.

For HS: Frankly, I've always disliked the food here. That said, I've never been to the SciFi Drive In.

For AK: Again, not big on the food here. I've had the CS bbq -its ok.

For the family, we love the Hoop Dee Doo Review. It is expensive and cheesey and total fun for all ages!

For nicer TS, we like the California Grill at fireworks time gives me goosebumps! We've enjoyed Narcoossee's for surf-n-turf. The Kona Cafe in the Poly has excellent food and isn't as pricey.

My surprise answer to this is boardwalk bakery. First visit was last month, but ended up there 3 times in a week!

On our trip to WDW last October- our favorite was Le Cellier (went for lunch)- it was soooooo good.

But we also really liked Tony's and Coral Reef despite other not-so-good reviews. Tony's had HUGE portions and we received great service. Coral Reef had delicious mahi mahi.

We also went to several character breakfasts- they were good and we had fun but i wouldnt say there were MUST-DO.

We enjoyed every meal we had at WDW- Enjoy your trip!

I love Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney. I still crave an All American. mmmm

For atmosphere, I love SciFi Dine-In Theater. The food here is so-so.

In terms of food, I like Liberty Tree Tavern.

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).
Last time I went, I ate at Chef Mickey's. My daughter had a great time, and the food was great!!

The only two restaurants we have to repeat from our last trip are Sanaa and Kona Cafe.

Via Napoli is my fave restaurant. Amazing pizza. Great atmosphere and service.

WGPE (CS, market place location) is also my absolute fave. Its had consistently delicious food every time, and has also been better than a lot of TS restaurants.

Tutto Italia is very good, so is chefs de france, and teppan edo.

For best atmosphere i like trex and scifi. A lot of fun. And we also happen to like the food there.

The worst restaurants in my opinion is tonys (horrendous food), and ohana (dinner only, we love breakfast). But that's just my opinion.

You should look at menus and pictures and base your decisions on what appeals to you and your family. Good luck!

Our family really like Tepan Edo in Japan. We are excited to try some different places this year.

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!
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?

Yes, I'm a big Earl of Sandwich fan too, we're lucky enough to have one in a mall about 20 minutes away from my home.

As far as LTT, did you have lunch or dinner there? I absolutely love their Colony Salad at lunch, but haven't done dinner since the characters were taken away and the food was just "okay" but I think more of the emphasis was on the characters, wonder if it's changed at all since?

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.
How was your dinner at BOG on NYE??

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!

Always loved Jiko, (yes their filet is amazing!!) but I have to choose between there and Sanaa which we've never tried...so not sure what to do...

I would choose Sanaa.

While we love Jiko (especially for the atmosphere) -- I was somewhat disappointed with our entrees last week. The server, while wonderful, highly suggested the prawns.... and they were just so-so. Part of one was downright mushy. I didn't want to say anything - we were dining with our teenage boys and having a really nice time with them... just didn't want to spoil the mood.

Dinner for the four of us was very expensive. Two appys, four entrees, 3 glasses of wine, and 3 desserts - with tip was $350. For that I expect to be blown away - and we simply weren't

We did Sanaa last year and were very, very pleased. I kind of forgot about it for this trip, but next time will choose Sanaa over Jiko.

Akershus is an absolute must-do for our family. It is princess dining and to be perfectly honest, it kick Cinderella's Royal Table's butt. The character interaction is fantastic and I love that the photo is included in your meal purchase. You will get your photo taken with a princess (we had Belle in her beautiful yellow gown) and then 4 other princesses will come to your table. We had Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Ariel. They were all fantastic! When Sleeping Beauty found out that my grandfather had fallen ill the day before our trip and was unable to attend, she commented on how sometimes our prince's do fall ill after fighting dragons. Snow White commented on my daughter being bashful just like her friend and how Grumpy always cheers up when she makes a gooseberry pie for him. Ariel took my daughter (the youngest in the restaurant) by the hand and escorted her through the princess parade and then took her to talk to Snow White (we had told Ariel about how Snow White was our daughter's favorite and she had been too star struck to speak to her and actually only spoke to Ariel). Fantastic experience. On top of that, the food is absolutely fantastic. You will have an all-you-can-eat cold appetizer buffet with various salads, cheeses, and meats. Some are exotic and some are things you are more used to. You choose a meal from a menu. Then dessert is brought out family style and is also all-you-can-eat. All was very good.

We also really love Biergarten. It is a buffet in Germany and I have yet to find a food there I don't like. It isn't exactly healthy, but so good! The staff there has always been exceptional. Most Disney workers seem to enjoy their jobs, but these workers seemed especially happy. I love the polka band and it is a lot of fun to dance as they play. The beer and wine selection is nice and you can get a whole liter of beer if you so desire. The apple strudel and the bavarian cheesecake are not to be missed!

Sci Fi Dine In has, at least in my opinion, the best theming of any restaurant on Disney property. We love the feel that you are actually in a drive in movie late at night, even though it is noon. The food is pretty good, as well. The turtle cheesecake was a big hit with my family.



For counter service, Tangerine Cafe in Morocco is probably my favorite. It has large portions and the food is fantastic. I like Cosmic Ray's in Tomorrowland for his extensive menu and the adorable singing alien, Sonny Eclipse. The toppings bar also really adds a lot to your order.
