I'm joining in! We'll be arriving the day you leave (and the day Pop Warner begins, pooh). Actually, we went during Pop Warner week in 2011 and it really wasn't bad. Here's my take on the restaurants you have listed as possibilities: Tusker House (Breakfast) -- LOVE IT! It's one of our favorites, even my picky DH really enjoyed it. They have a great variety and the character interaction is great (minus Donald being outside only). It was our favorite breakfast. Hollywood & Vine -- We've only done breakfast here, but we really enjoyed it. We had absolutely no idea who the characters were, but they came up to our table and tried to do a little dance to entertain us, anyway. It was hilarious. The atmosphere is bland compared to other Disney dining options, but we really liked the food. Chefs de France -- We were not too impressed. I had combo (French onion soup, salmon and chocolate mousse cake. The soup was great, but everything else was just...bleh. DH had the baked macaroni and was totally underwhelmed (and he LOVES cheese and macaroni, so I was surprised by that one). But, we did have the CUTEST waiter and he was super sweet. Haha. Le*Cellier Steakhouse( -- Love, love, LOVE the Cheddar soup and if you like raspberries, you should definitely try the Red Maple -- holy deliciousness!! The only downside, we're not huge fans of truffle oil and it seems to be in A LOT of things here. We're planning on doing it for lunch and just getting soup, an appetizer and a Red Maple! Whispering Canyon -- We've done this for breakfast and dinner. We preferred breakfast, but dinner's not bad (we just had really SLOW service that night). The atmosphere is more fun at dinner, though. Since you like buffets, I'd suggest checking out Cape May Cafe. We LOVE that place. We discovered it during our last trip and actually had dinner there twice. The crab legs are AH-MAAA-ZING, especially for a buffet. Again, DH is super picky and he really enjoyed it. One place we DID NOT like at all was Chef Mickey's. We've tried breakfast and dinner there and both were just...UGH! The character interaction was awesome, but that was the only redeeming quality we found in the place. DH and I both disliked it, and I LOVE buffets, normally. I went back w/ my nephews and sister to try it for dinner and it was even worse. But, Mickey did hang out at our table for 15-20 min so that was fun!
