    We are visiting WDW for the second time this coming December and we are very excited about all of our dining options. I would love to hear what you think the best meals are and any must try menu items for each place.

    If you can only give info on 1 restaurant that is great, if you can give recommendations for many or all that would also be wonderful.

    1. Sci Fi Diner (dinner)

    2. Cinderella's Royal Table (lunch)

    3. T-Rex (dinner)

    4. 50's Prime Time Diner (lunch)

    5. O'Hana's (dinner)

    6. Biergarten (lunch)

    7. Crystal Palace (breakfast)

    8. Raglan Road (dinner)

    9. Rose & Crown (dinner)

    10. San Angel Inn (lunch)

    T-Rex: Neanderthal New York Strip with waffle fries. Stay away from the garlic mashed potatoes unless you REALLY love garlic. :scared: For dessert, the Ice Age Indulgence is very good, also.

    5. 'Ohana: everything. Absolutely everything.

    10. San Angel: bonus points if you try the tilapia entree; triple bonus points if you post pics (totally selfish motivation here: we're planning on eating at San Angel in May and this is an entree I really want to know more about). Second place to the pork with the sauce that includes pumpkin.

    12. Yak & Yeti: I think I found a hidden gem on their menu last trip - the Maple Tamarind Chicken. I don't think I've ever seen it reviewed but the menu description looked intriguing and I thought it was absolutely delicious. I am not a hot/spicy food fan (DH had the duck which he liked but I did not because the spices kicked in a little after you'd taken a bite). The tamarind sauce on the chicken was savory rather than super-sweet, but there was no 'heat' to it. There are other things on the menu that I might like to try but I'm going to have a huge problem ordering anything but the Maple Tamarind Chicken in the future.

    1. Sci Fi Diner (dinner) - we've tried many things. All great! Love their wings, shakes, burger/fries, spinach/chip dip, choc.peanut butter dessert. Rings were good but a tad greasy. Its not my fave thing in general thou.
    2. Cinderella's Royal Table (lunch)

    3. T-Rex (dinner) - My son loves the nacho's. The quesedilla here is very good. I love it. We usually get a few appetizers when we come here instead of full meals.

    4. 50's Prime Time Diner (lunch) - fried chicken was way too salty. Id go for the pot roast or sampler next time.

    5. O'Hana's (dinner) - highly overrated place. Food quality wasnt that great. Below average. My fave items were the bread, salad, and dessert. VERY YUMMY. everything else was just meh.

    6. Biergarten (lunch) - many yummy items on the buffet. Try it all! Schnitzels, soup, pretzel bread, and mac n' cheese are VERY VERY good here! So yummy.

    7. Crystal Palace (breakfast) - BREAKFAST LASAGNA IS TO DIE FOR! You MUST try it!!!! Pooh's french toast is also great. :goodvibes

    8. Raglan Road (dinner) - I had a steak, and liked it very much!

    9. Rose & Crown (dinner) - Again, had a steak. Quite delish.

    10. San Angel Inn (lunch)

    11. Coral Reef (dinner)

    12. Yak & Yeti (lunch)

    13. Flying Fish (dinner)

    14. Be Our Guest (dinner)

    Sci Fi - we like the milkshakes
    50's Prime time - we like the pot roast and the chicken
    Biergarten - we like just about everything, Pretzel rolls are good
    Crystal Palace Breakfast - Poohs stuffed french toast and fresh fruit
    Coral Reef - I enjoyed my steak here and my daughter loved her mahi-mahi

    'Ohana - I saved the best for last - the chicken wings, potstickers and of course the best dessert in disney - bread pudding:worship:

    FYI, the PBJ milkshakes are at 50's, not SciFi. But SciFi shakes are awesome too! :thumbsup2 Although I gotta admit, i looove the PBJ shake a lot more. You can get one to go if you order at the bar. Try it! So good. :goodvibes

    See I truly am not a milkshake person, I don't even remember where they are served. If I had the milkshake (and trust me, peanut butter wouldn't be it), I wouldn't make it through lunch or dinner!

    1. Sci Fi Diner (dinner)- This was not my thing, but the rest of my family enjoyed it. I'm not much of a burger person, but it was pretty good.

    2. Cinderella's Royal Table (lunch) - I like the short rib :)

    5. O'Hana's (dinner) - Love everything... however, I love the sides they bring out the best. And the shrimp!!!

    7. Crystal Palace (breakfast) - I attempt to try it all... then walk it all off afterwards (yeah right!)

    11. Coral Reef (dinner)- I had the Lobster Ravioli. It wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't terrible. My DH's fish was much better IMO (I think it was the Mahi Mahi). Loved eating here, though.


    Have a blast!!! :)

    The Lomo de puerco en pipian (pork tenderloin in pumpkin sauce) at San Angel Inn is FANTASTIC! :) Several people in my party had this, and we were all thoroughly impressed.

    Talk to me! How spicy? How much chili? Onions/peppers? What about the sides?

    My mouth is positively watering reading all of your favourite dishes. There are a few that are totally jumping out at me:-

    Potato wrapped snapper at Flying Fish
    Ribs ribs and more ribs, my DH will be in heaven
    Everything mentioned for San Angel Inn, I think we may order several different dishes to share. Our family loves eating "family style".
    Pot Roast - it's not something we really eat here so high on my list.
    We love a good burger so Sci Fi should help with that.

    Ooooh yum, I am even more excited about our trip now.
