Magic Kingdom----Tony's but I think after February it might change to Be Our Guest

Epcot----This one is tough.....I am going to go with Via Napoli but I also like the Garden Grill.

DHS------Sci fi Dine In...... best milkshakes

Animal Kingdom-----Loved Tusker House breakfast but have to say Yak and Yeti serves a mean lunch.....really good drinks.

Resort------used to be Whispering Canyon Cafe.....after the menu change...never again....Now it is Ohana for dinner. We are doing Chef Mickey's for the first time this year so it might change. I also really enjoyed the Turf Club at Saratoga Springs Resort.

Only 2 must dos for me at the moment are The Wave at the Contemporary and La Hacienda de San Angel at Epcot (I love the shrimp tacos there).

We do like Kona, Ohana and Narcoossee's. There are so many restaurants we haven't tried though. I'm hoping for a return trip in 2014. We usually never go more than 12-18 months between trips but now that DH is a student and we're living off of a stipend, it's just not in our budget and I won't stay off property again.
