Don't let the reviews scare you away from trying it. Two trips ago, I was in the same boat and was about to ditch our reservation to 1900 PF for dinner because the reviews made me nervous. Like you, I came on the boards asking others if I should switch the reservation to somewhere else. Fortunately, many assured me it was great and to at least give it a try for myself. In the end, I kept the reservation for my family and I was so glad that I did! We loved the food (large variety of not your standard buffet items, very fresh & hot, and a large variety of fruit & other items not on the other buffets) and the character interaction was by far the best on property. The character interaction so made the experience! We dined there again this past summer and weren't disappointed. We still found the food to be very tasty with a broad variety and again, the character interaction made it our most memorable meal. Good luck with your decision!

Thanks guys for all your help,! Your all right I have stressed myself because of reviews and since this particular day we won't be at the parks we were looking for a dinner at a resort.... Our main priority is the characters not the food so I can live with the food ........but now I'm stressed to see where I can add crystal palace since you all say it's so great

We ended up here by chance. We were trapped in Disney (not a bad problem to have) due to snow in the northeast and since we were staying at the POLY we wanted something close by. There was space available at 1900 so we gave it a try.

I thought the food was just as good, if not better, than the other Disney buffets (and we have tried all of them with the exception of 'Ohana for breakfast) and the characters were great.

If you typically eat at character meals on property then I think you will really enjoy it. I think the bad reviews tend to come from folks who prefer the non-buffets.

For us we do not like crystal palace. The food was not good, bad service and not great character interaction. I know everyone's experiences vary and for our trip in 2011 it was ok but 2012 was really bad.
