I'm not sure. I bought it up as a possible choice and she didn't seem to consider it. When I specifically asked about dinner there, she said it just isn't a great experience and not her favourite . Maybe as far as buffets go, she figures we're full up

She did suggest LTT....but I've requested GFC. Hubby likes the sound of the menu, I like the (hopefully!) ease of getting there! Really, we're pretty easy to please, and looking forward to the variety of meals we'll be having!

GFC should be super easy to get to from MK. Either the monorail or (and I did the more often my last trip) was to take the boat over. It's a nice little ride. If you take the monorail you just go downstairs since you'll be the in main building, or if you take the boat you just walk up the path from the dock to the main building (there's signs) and it's to the right inside the door. The path doesn't take you to the main entrance just so if you look at a map you're not confused.

And nearly a year later....we went with Grand Floridian Cafe . Appreciate everyone's recommendations!

And for what it's worth, we took te boat there - awesome, and everyone loved that, the resort was beautiful, the restaurant not too busy, and the food excellent. In fact, it was both mine and my dad's favourite meal

Kona and Grand Floridian Cafe are great choices. I've eaten at both many times and they are always good. You could also take a boat to Fort Wilderness and do their buffet at Trail's End buffet. I've taken family groups there and it is a nice, quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of the parks. I'd go over there for an early dinner if you can get it and then return t the park. They serve basic dinner items that everyone in our group of 8 liked. The kids and adults all liked this option for dinner.
