So what's the deal with 1900 Park Fare Dinner?

I've heard the step sisters are hilarous but the food is horrible. Would you use a TS there or pick someplace else? There will be me, my DD13 , my sister, 7 yr old niece and my 12 yr old nephew.

We were just there last week for dinner. It was a great time and my 4 1/2 yr old daughter went gaga over Prince Charming and Cinderella. Lady Tremaine and the stepsisters were hysterical. If my boys will tolerate it again for their baby sister, I would not hesitate to go back. We enjoyed the food. Is it as good as a 2 ticket restaurant on the dining plan, probably not, but it was fine for a dinner buffet and I do not feel like I was ripped off. We went to Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast last week also and I feel like that was a rip off for the 2 tickets (or out-of-pocket price if not on the dining plan). We were rushed in and out and you only had 3 food options for the adults and I think 2 options for the kids. My kids do better with buffets. There was not nearly as much princess interaction at the Royal Table - I would do Akershus for lunch in EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare for dinner on the next trip to see all of the princesses and skip the Royal Table. Fine to say we did it once, but wouldn't do again. Just my two cents. I am sure others have different opinions. And, Prince Charming was NOT at CRT breakfast. It was really cool because my daughter had the chance to dance with him. I had tears in my eyes as I photographed her in her princess gown during her 'first ball dance'. Too much fun. Good luck with your decision and have an awesome trip regardless of what you decide to do!

We liked both the food and the entertainment. The room was really loud, but that didn't bother us. The buffet had a good variety of different foods. They had the adult buffet and a kid buffet with the usual chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and pizza. My kids ate from both buffets. We thought it was one of the better buffets at Disney, we would definelty go back. Make sure you try the strawberry soup, its the best!

We eat there every trip and really enjoy it. It's not a 5 star meal but it is lots of fun.

I cried when our dd got to dance with the Prince - he even kissed her hand - priceless!!!

I really liked the food there, especially the cold noodles and chicken marsala. oh and the strawberry soup! I don't understand the hatred for the dinner there-it was awesome when I went.

I actually like the food there. I guess I'm weird.

we really enjoyed the whole experience at dinner. There were a few things we didn't like, but that's true at any buffet. Some things were outstanding...like that strawberry soup.

They just don't have as much variety on the buffet as CP or CM but we found what they offered was quite good. My personal favorite is the asparagus soup!

I will be at 1900 Park Fare for dinner on December 9th. I can't wait. I like the food and the characters interaction there.

We went this past June and it was the best meal we ever had there. In the past it was just so-so but we really enjoyed the food this time. The stepsisters were hysterical.

We have eaten at the Park Fare on our last two trips and we loved it not only for the incredibly awesome, comical show but also for the delicious food We found it far superior to our experience as Chef Mickey's (where we will not eat again!).

We are eating here for the first time in December and I too have been reading a ton of mixed reviews on this place. I am actually excited about seeing the Step Family, we saw them in MK and they were hilarious there. As for the food, it is a buffet so you are going to get things that you won't like, but then there are probably going to be things that you will like....I am not too worried about it. Besides, even though I do read the reviews, I take them with a grain of salt because the reviews are just opinions and I like to be my own critic. So I say go and enjoy yourself

I can honestly tell ya the food is bad bad bad, the service is terrible and the long wait past our ADR time was even worse but the characters are incredible. BUT...I would never eat there again....even the kids were not happy with the food choices and we all left feeling a bit hungry and unsatisfied

We loved the characters and didn't like the food at all. I guess we're in the minority here LOL
