Whispering Canyon Cafe. Not at all what it was hyped up to be and the food was so so.

Rose and Crown, 'Ohana, Sci Fi Dine in and California Grill... All terrible in my experience.

Wow no way? Scifi and Cali Grill are both my faves! Just goes to show you, different strokes eh.

I agree with you about Ohana thou. Dinner of course. Not good at all. I don't understand the hype it gets. Ditto for Beaches & Cream.

Oh ya. You're not alone. I agree. Terrible.

I will also say that I didn't think Chef Mickey's lived up to the hype, but the food was fine. Not great, not awful. It was edible and I didn't leave hungry. I was kind of expecting better for the price, though.[/QUOTE]

I totally agree!! The food was just ok and it took forever for the characters to get around.Once they did come to our table they seemed rushed to sign and pose for a pic. I think Mickey signed his name Mike Mouse in my daughters book.

The Wave - Felt like we were eating in a conference room, and the food was bland. Our waitress was a sweetheart, but I still wouldn't go back.

Biergarten - Worth going once just for the show, it was cute. But the food was mediocre buffet fare.

We eat at O'hana every trip and the early ressie 5 pm is the trick! Later the meat gets worse very tough.

We had breakfast at the Wave on departure day just because it was handy; we were staying at BLT. It was not good at all. I'd never go back, our waitress was also very sweet but it just didn't make up for the blah food.

We had a 5:20 ressie 3 weeks ago and the food was great. Nothing was overcooked and my family loved it!!!!

The birds grossed me out at Chef Mickey's!

Glad I tried it on Dining Plan & the characters were fun otherwise I would have wasted OOP during a different trip?!

Ohana. It was so highly regarded here on our first trip. We had a 6:00 dinner ressie and it was horrible.

Also 1900 Park was beyond bad. The food was a much greasier version of golden corral. The character interaction was fantastic but, not good enough to go back on future visits.

Don't know what it's called, but the Mexican CS place in World Showcase. Plastic yellow cheese, prefab tortillas, itty bitty tables, ugh.

Food at Disney is not gourmet. I go with that mindset and have never had a gross, bad meal.I know the food is medicore. I've had more good servers than bad. Maybe because I've just been lucky, or maybe because I smile, say please and thank you and address them by name, ask them about their hometown. When I am at WS, if I know a little bit of their language I use it. I am going next week and am looking forward to my favorites, and trying new restaurants. That said I love Tusker House breakfast, and had great service. Did not like TH lunch. The flavors were not for me and our server was not great, but then we went without kids and she concentrated on tables with kids. I will go back for breakfast. My favorite dish of all?? Eggplant parmesan at Via Napoli. Pixie dust on 2013 trips for us all!!!!!
