I agree I like Captain Cook's, and I also like the Contempo Cafe at the CR. I absolutely can't stand the BC Marketplace, I avoid that place like the plague.

For those of you that don't know they make holiday/seasonal inspired cupcakes

The Thanksgiving one with a turkey on top was too cute and tasted even better.

2nd choice is WL Roarin Forks

The BC has the WORST quick service!!!!!!!!!! No selection and what do have stinks. The Poly and Contemporary have very good quick service. I don't know about any of the other deluxe quick service. I have heard that WL quick service has a GREAT breakfast.

The Mara at AKL is great. We also thought Roaring Forks was good--just on the small side.

IMHO, nothing beats Captain Cooks and the "mile high" self-serve Dole Whip.

As far as deluxes, I've only stayed at Yacht Club and Contemporary, so I don't have a large experience base. However, I did find the Contempo Cafe at the Contemporary to be a fine place to grab a bite to eat. It wasn't anything extravagant, but the food was fine and the staff was pleasant.
