Portion sizes at the Epcot and Epcot area resort restaurants?

I have no doubt that they are going to have to roll my husband and me out of Epcot like Templeton the rat at the fair after all of our dining meals. But, we want to eat at all of these places and so we will. I'm trying to pair lunch and suppers up as best as possible so I don't have two gigantic meals in one day.

Teppan Edo
San Angel Inn
Cape May

Now I've eaten at Biergarten and Akershus so I know what to expect. Cape May is a buffet so I know what to expect there. I have heard that Teppan Edo has smaller portions that most Japanese steak houses. Is that true? And how big are the portions at San Angel Inn and Yachtsman? We will order lighter meals if we need to, but would like to have a general idea of what will be coming out of that kitchen if we order a typical meal at each of these restaurants.

We find that the portion sizes are big. We are not cheap people at all. We spend a lot and I do mean a lot on vacation. When all 8 of us go, we get 5 or 6 meals and it is plenty for all of us to share. My husband and the boys eat well, too.

In Epcot we share and still don't finish all the food. In fact this is true of most Disney dining so our next trip we are going with mostly apps and desserts at the non-buffet spots.

Yachtsman portions are very large, split a steak and order an extra side. Desserts tend to be small.

Thanks everyone! You are all giving me great information. So if we were to rank the three non-buffets (and I'm counting Akershus as a buffet in this situation since the appetizer bar is a buffet and the desserts are all you can eat) based on portion size, would it look like this: San Angel Inn, Yachtsman, Teppan Edo? I'm trying to figure out how to partner up all 6 restaurants for just 3 days at Epcot.

Maybe you could do a Google search on the meals you think you'll choose, then use the Images option.

Good luck and have fun.
