Just returned - some dining reviews

Sorry, no photos. But here are some reviews if you are interested:

1) Yak and Yeti - I had the duck and it was delicious! Not at all greasy or heavy with a good flavor. My DS (10) had the Shrimp LoMein and my husband had the Steak and Shrimp. Good reviews from everyone! I would eat here again.
2) 50's Prime Time Cafe - Sweetness overload!! Of course, no one forced me to order the Berry Smoothie and dessert! I had the pot roast and my husband ordered the meatloaf. We both agreed the pot roast was much better than the meatloaf. DS had a big 'Dagwood' type sandwich which was very good. Service here was s-l-o-w.... This was more of an 'experience' rather than a dining destination so I'm not sure if I'd eat here again. Did I mention how good the pot roast was??
3) San Angel Inn - I ordered the Churrasco Con Chilaquiles when what I really wanted (based on other reviews) was the Puntas de Filete en Salsa Guajillo. Regardless, my steak was very good and flavorful. DS had the Mahi-Mahi which he said was excellent. The ambiance is wonderful after a bright hot morning in Futureworld! I would eat here again.
4) Crystal Palace - I picked this more for the characters than the food but the food was delicious! One remark: the buffet line can be very long, as you have to go through the salad line to get to the main courses, even if you don't want salad (unless you want to get dirty looks by 'jumping ahead' to the main course line). The dessert buffet is separate; CP should seriously think about having a separate salad line as well. I don't think I'll do this again only because I've eaten here every trip I've had to Disney and I'm ready to move on.
5) Les Chefs de France - Went here specifically so my son could try escargots. We all tried them; they weren't half-bad! A little too much parsley for my taste but lots of butter and garlic which is OK in my book! Remy briefly visited our table - he was cute! I had the beef filet and my husband had the short ribs. The ribs were much better than the beef filet but I did enjoy the green beans and potatoes which came with the filet. My son ordered a shrimp/scallop skewer (Noix de Saint Jacques et gambas sautees Flan d'epinards, sauce a l'oseille) which he enjoyed but my husband tasted and said was nothing special. I don't eat seafood so I didn't try this entree. Now that I've tried escargot I don't think I'll be back. The food was good but there's not enough variety on the menu to warrant a return trip.
6) Wolfgang Puck Cafe - This was my only disappointment of the trip. I specifically booked this restaurant for the Veal Wienerschnitzel only to be told a) it wasn't on the Cafe menu anymore, just the menu upstairs and b) it was now made with pork! Huh? I've never heard of pork Weinerschnitzel! So I ordered the Maytag blue cheese flat iron steak which is served with fries and onion straws and the server graciously allowed me to swap green beans for the onion straws. My husband had wanted the Cobb salad but the restaurant didn't have blue cheese dressing (!) so he had to settle for something else (can't remember what at this time). My son was the only satisfied customer - he ordered the Chef's Sampler sushi platter and loved it. I don't think I'll return here.
7) 1900 Park Fare Mad Hatter Breakfast - Great food! Of course, I love breakfast anyway so this is a no-brainer for me. They offer breads, muffins, croissants, fresh fruit, waffles, french toast, pancakes, made-to-order waffles, strawberry soup, some type of lobster sauce, bagels, lox, ice cream, etc. We saw the Mad Hatter, Alice, Mary Poppins, Pooh and Tigger (didn't realize we'd see them again after Crystal Palace!). I would eat here again in a heartbeat!

Sorry no pictures but I hope this review helps someone!
