We aren't running back to Rose & Crown. I had a 7:35 ADR there for 9pm Illumninations. Didn't get seated until 8:10, which was fine because I wanted to be there still for Illuminations. We were sat on an upper patio table and having never been there before, I didn't know until the show started that the awning over the lower patio table would block part of my view of the fireworks. I didn't want to get up because we were in the middle of my desser but we could have. The food was also mediocre - I had fish and chips which was good but hard to screw up, and my BF had bangers & mash which he said was just ok.

Pizzafari & Planet Pizza both had the same exact gross pizza. I don't know why so many people say those are good places for counter service. I commented to my DH that it tasted like frozen Digornio pizza & he replied that a Digornio is about 100 times better. This from a man that can eat just about anything and not complain. Even my kids didn't like it & they could absolutely live on pizza.

Also Fairfax Fare was absolutely disgusting. We had the BBQ meal which we thought was a good deal. It was horrible. The chicken skin literally tasted like leather, probably the worst thing I have ever ordered anywhere in Disney (and maybe anywhere else for that matter!).

Mickey's backyard Bar-b-que

cold, mediocre food, they started breaking down the buffet about 20 minutes into dinner. Parents were pushing their kids in front of the characters for pics and autographs (even though they were told not to).

DD likes the Ice Cream, and I liked the beer --- other than that a total waste of 2 credits

It's the same pizza they have all over, resorts too. I think it's good, but its definitely something frozen/refrigerated for them to produce so many. I won't eat at Pizza Planet again because the line took forever, it was packed, and there was no place to sit - we had to pull a table up to the brick wall outside and sit on the wall.

I didn't Hollywood and Vine bad, just as good as any other Disney Buffet. Cindy's Castle was hands down the best character meal. Expensive though.

Cooke's of Dublin in DTD. DW and I went in August 2010 without the kids and they sat us in the bar area and we couldn't see the stage. The food wasn't very good. I got sick later that night and i'm pretty sure it was something I ate there.

We also tried Hollywood and Vine once and were both very disappointed in both service and food.

Tony's Town Square, it just wasn't good at all. It's a shame because the inside of the restaurant is pretty nice.

Agree with Rose & Crown. We went in Sept & I ordered the Sunday roast. Had it in 2010 & it was a delicious melt in your mouth pot roast. This year, it was a dry, tough roast beef. Same description on the menu. Asked if htis was the right dish, since it was so different. Waitress said they were now using a "better" cut of beef. Uh, no. And she replied so quickly, I new she must have heard this before. If you are changing the dish, fine. But change the menu, so customers know it is something completely different, not what they had before.

Angry Sci Fi & Cape May (Dinner)

My only 2 regrets from my last trip were lunch @ Sci Fi & dinner @ Cape May. Had I known then what I know now, I would have gone to 2 different places. Service was just so-so and the food was disgusting. Won't go back to either again any time soon.

I had no problem with it, but the Rainforest Cafe didn't subtract off the bill the chicken my girlfriend didn't want on her salad.

For us it must be 50's prime time. The service is always bad, and the food is lousy at best. I love the theme, but it is on my "not an option" list.
