What is the best buffet in Disney?

Both cheapest and most expensive?

"Best" is terribly subjective and you are going to get all kinds of opinions. You can see all of the menus at www.allearsnet.com

Our favorites are Boma (Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House) and Trail's End (Fort Wilderness).
The buffets are all fairly similar in price, but Trail's End tends to be just a bit cheaper than the rest.

Inside the Parks, I really like Hollywood & Vine. It had very non-traditional buffet items, my favorite was the Lobster Mac & Cheese. I was on the dining plan so I'm not sure how much is was per plate, but It was very yummy! I can't wait to go back in Feburary.

Outside the Parks: I liked Chef Mickey's a lot, the food was pretty standard Buffet but it was still good and warm. The Characters were fun too!

It depends on what you like. I would check out at least one charachter buffet, but if thats not your thing there are many around the "World" that are good. Check out the link PP Posted with menus and see what jumps out at you!

Crystal Palace - Bfast is my FAVE. Lunch/dinner are awesome too.
Tusker House - love bfast, not a fan of their lunch.
Cape May - love their bfast.

Biergarten - pretty good lunch/dinner buffet.

Not a fave but....

1900 PF - bfast is good, dinner is not.

1. Biergarten-best food and variety, plus a show. Oh yeah, really big beers!
2. Tusker House- great breakfast and the best characters.
3. Cape May Clambake-crab legs and shrimp, need I say mnore?
4. Liberty Tree Tavern- love Thanksgiving dinner when I don't have to cook.
Last- Boma. Yeah, I hated everything. Flame away.
