    Ok here's the problem. My boyfriend's mom is treating us to a Disney Spring Break, so we want to do something nice for her in return (she's going with us). We already have reservations at Chef Mickey's (she loves the Mouse) but are wondering if there is somewhere else we should take her since we went there the last time we went.

    Any suggestions?

    How about Jiko's at the AKL? I've read GREAT reviews on this place and the filet w/ mac 'n cheese has caught my eye. It wasn't even a place I was interested in until I saw it scanning reviews. Plus it'll give me a reason to visit AKL.

    My dad and mom both LOVED Boma, the buffet over at Animal Kingdom Lodge. In fact, we're going again in March, and my dad insisted we go there at least once, if not more, and everyone in our party loved it. It's a buffet, but unconventional with lots of interesting things on it.

    My parents also loved the Primetime 50's Diner at MGM. My dad was put in the corner for being a bad boy, my mom had the entire restaurant wave their finger at her and call her a liar (long story) and my sister was playfully forced to eat her string beans. Plus, the food was really good!

    If she's my parents' age, she'll love 50s Prime Time with the decor.

    Or how about Grand Floridian Cafe?

    Jiko could def. be a possibility since she has wanted to see AKL and hasn't been there before....We will probably keep Chef Mickey's as well, simply because she likes the characters....I should probably have mentioned that she isn't a big eater, most of the time she just snacks, which makes it hard to pick out something that would be special for her....

    How about something a little different at the Boardwalk like Flying Fish Cafe or Spoodles. That being said you can never go wrong with Boma or the experience of JIKO.

    If she likes peaceful and upscale feeling, go to the Brown Derby in HS. You don't see many people talking about it but it's great. :thumbsup2
