We have done Garden Grill (dinner), Chef Mickey's (breakfast and dinner) and Tusker House (breakfast). Our favorite is Garden Grill. We loved the food (salad and rolls with honey butter YUM!)also the character interaction is always great. our next favorite is Tusker House. We will not go back to Chef Mickey's we have gone 3 times and the food is not to our taste and we think the characters are really rushed there but that is just our opinion. We will be there in Feb and will be eating at Garden Grill it is the one place our DS10 demands to eat at. Have a great trip!!!!

The only reason to do chef mickeys is to see Minnie. If you're okay not seeing Minnie I highly recommend tusker house or garden grill. We love both, but tusker house wins in this house because of Donald. Grade grill - chip, dale, Mickey, and Pluto. Tusker - Donald, daisy, goofy, Mickey. I wish Pluto was there!

We really enjoyed Garden Grill. It was a very fun relaxing experience. The meal was very good. The characters came around multiple times. It is on our to do list again.

We love Garden Grill for character interaction and we love the food. We also love Tusker House lunch, which also has delicious food and great character interaction. We hated Chef Mickey's it was the worst, unorganized, chaotic restaurant we've ever eaten at, plus the wait was horrendous, for an 8:30 am breakfast!

We were just there in October. My 8yr old DS said he enjoyed the Garden Grill the best. My 3.5yr old DD enjoyed Chef Mickey's , mostly because she got to see Minnie Mouse. Of the two, I enjoyed the food at Chef Mickey better and thought both character interactions were great. I don't think you can go wrong.

Have a great time

I'm surprised to see all the good reviews of the Garden Grill's food. We ate there for dinner once and the food was terrible. Cold soggy catfish and practically raw brisket. We ended up eating from the kids food. We also did not care for the characters there, while they interacted nicely with us, we didn't care for the farmer clothes. I'm guessing we were there on an off night since so many above have enjoyed it.

We have also done Chef Mickey's for breakfast and dinner. We enjoyed both. We have also done Tusker house for Breakfast. We liked the food the most at Tusker house. But didn't like that Donald didn't sign autograph books. Just something to think about.
