Choose our last table service dinner

Hi all

I've cancelled our dinner reservation at Cape May, just because we'll be at MK that day, and it seemed too much work to get there

So.....where should we try for dinner? Our TA has booked us a res at Whispering Canyon, but I don't know if I want to experience that "eating event". Menu sounds okay, but noise, noise, noise and goofy stuff....I am unsure (yeesh, I sound like the grinch!)

I would prefer to stay at the park, or try a monorail resort for simplicity sake. We have two small kids (2 & 5) and grandparents in the group.

We're leaving in 10 days, so some places are no longer available. Thanks!

Crystal Palace? Grand Floridian Cafe is terrific. 1900 Park Fare is always fun, so is Chef Mickey's. And there's always Kona Cafe too. Yummy!!

WC is too 'much' for us! Lol!! We like Kona or GFC. We are not fans of the Wave. Too fancy, not the place the food. In MK LTT is ok. Plaza is good but more for lunch IMO. Burgers
and sandwiches. Good but...BoG was good but at this late date probably not an option. I would choose Kona if it was me. BTW we avoid all places that do tbe goofy stuff, the antics. Just don't like it. Love 50's but will only eat in the lounge and even then sometimes they get into charater and it annoys us. So count us in as Grinches!!

Grand Floridian Cafe is excellent. We love 1900 Park Fare. Haven't eaten at Liberty Tree Tavern but really want to. Enjoy!

I'd go with Liberty Tree Tavern. It was a must do for us back when it was a character meal. Decent food.

Unless you can get Crystal Palace.. Amazing food for a buffet & great character interaction!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions...I was sort of leaning to Grand Floridian Cafe, but never thought of Kona. Our TA actually recommends against Crystal Palace...

Maybe it will be nice to have one calm meal in there!

We enjoy Crystal Palace but have decided against it for this trip...

Any idea why your TA advised against it?

Yes, if you're doing loads of character meals it might be nice to have a calm meal in the mix. Is that why your TA advised against CP? It's one of my family's favorites and I'm a TA so I recommend it to a lot of people!

Will be unlikely to get a reservation at 'Ohana this short of notice, but it would be worth trying. My other picks would be Kona, 1900 Park Fare, or Crystal Palace.

What about The Wave at the Contemporary? Or the GFC at the GF?

Kona would be a great choice. Good food, relaxing atmosphere at the Poly!
