The night we went the food was really good, Cinderella was very sweet, but the stepsisters and stepmother were a disappointment. I was looking forward to the reports of some hilarious activity, but there wasn't any. But we had a great time, anyway, thanks to Cinderella.

We've been twice and our experience has been different both times. The first time we loved the food. DH couldn't get enough of the chicken Marsala and I went back for seconds ( maybe thirds, I was pregnant). But the characters were so so. All very nice but no big antics, at least any that were memorable. The second time the food was so so but the step sisters were in rare form. One even proposed to our nephew!! All in all there were positives in both experiences and we would definitely go again. It's worth a try.

The food was so so when we went in 2011. But the stepsisters and stepmother were great! Cinderella was nice too! The Prince had to leave on official castle bussiness so we didn't get to meet him.

The food was Not Good. Best character interaction of anywhere we've been, but the food is seriously lacking.

In my opinion it is a place that sticks out in my mind as one of the best places we have been to.... Because of the experience. The stepsisters and stepmother were just so hilarious and fun!!! But the food... Eh really didn't have as much variety as I would like but I would go back for the experience again.

We went in 2009 and really enjoyed it. The character interactions were some of the best in the parks - stepsisters were hilarious! The food was quite good of I recall, plenty for both kids and grown ups to eat.

We enjoyed it. We ate there for our 10th anniversary (Happily Ever After dinner - appropriate) and the food was good and the characters were fun. We had the unfortunate experience of sitting next to a CM who was not working that night (an older lady who brought guests - I don't know if she was a character or manager, but it was clear she worked there) and all the characters got to her first and made a huge deal about her being there, so it was a bit of a letdown in some respects when they got to us. Almost as if they were tapped out.

Don't get me wrong, the characters were good and we would probably eat there again, that was just something you can't plan for. But my kids liked it and they loved the buffet!

I was there in Jan. Food was OK. Characters were a hoot. However, the stepmother never made it to my table. Maybe I was loading my plate!! LOL And it was somewhat noisy. A 6/7 year old BD party was taking place right next to me.....
I found breakfast much better, but the characters at dinner were better

I have been to 1900 Park Fare at least 6-7 times....just can't remember the exact number because I am getting old!

Buffet: So-So Sometimes it is great, sometimes it is blah. JMHO. Strawberry soup is always consistantly good.

Cleanliness of the Restaurant: Again So-So. They pack a lot of families in all night, but the servers do a good job of not seeming like order takers, and try to make you feel welcome.

Characters: AWESOME!!!! I am a married women with no children, and no matter who I bring with me, parents, sister, neices & nephews, best friend, or husband, the step sisters, and Lady Tremaine make this a must do! The interaction is priceless, and I absolutely love going there.....this is coming from a 37 year old woman.

My sister and I once wore Team Stepsister Shirts and we were a hit....Cindy was kinda miffed. Makes me still laugh today. Go and have a fun time!


Many trips to the Happy Place...over 30!!! I love DVC!! A girls trip in January!

We went for dinner and were not at all impressed with the food. We hardly saw our waitress at all either and it took a long time to get our drinks. The characters were good and my girls enjoyed dancing with Prince Charming, so I didn't love it and I didn't hate it. We LOVED Be Our Guest. It was our favourite out of all of the restaurants. We also enjoyed Akershus in Epcot if you are wanting to meet Cinderella.

It's one of our favorite restaurants. It's a must do on each trip. We've always had good food (large variety, fresh, food you don't find at your typical buffet, enjoy the carving station and the chef's station that makes pasta in front of you with ingredients you pick). The character interaction is the absolute best on property. Have fun trying this place out!
