    planet Hollywood-not good, same food you can get at your typical chain
    crystal palace-aweome, a must do for us everytrip for breakfast
    chef mickey-it is all about the atmosphere and characters here, if you are going for the food I would skip it
    Tusker-we had really good food here but it was really crowded and the characters were running around like crazy trying to get to each table, I would try it for lunch or dinner

    GOOD
    Crystal Palace for food and Characters
    Chef Mickeys for characters
    Tusker (on rumor- never been) for food


    BAD
    H&V for food (and little einstein scares me)
    Chef Mickeys for food (although rumors are it has gotten better)
    Planet Hollywood - don't get me started


    OK
    Tony's - our experience- not as bad as people rate it. Not great though.
    Cptn Grille - not great service, but the food is pretty good

    Comments in red. H&V is one of two or three Disney restaurants that we will never step foot in again. Horrible service, horrible food.

    I agree with everyone. Planet Hollywood is the last place I would eat at. Even with the coupons you get when you book with Disney, I would still not eat at PH.

    We were just there May 10-17. Did lunch at Tonys and Dinner at Planet Hollywood on the same day. Both were great. No complaints. Would return to both without question.

    I am in the process of writing a dining review and have them both posted already.

    We actually enjoy Planet Hollywood, but we are big movie buffs and love the surroundings. We like the food too.

    As far as BAD - H&V....YUCKY food!!

    Top 3 out of that group

    1. Tusker House
    2. Chef Mickey's
    3. Crystal Palace

    I would stay away from Hollywood and Vine at all costs. I've read mostly negatives about the food there.

    i would take some of the opinions with a grain of salt. What one person hates another one loves. I too like Planet Hollywood (maybe not to eat at Disney since there are so many other new choices)

    Very true, I ate at Planet Hollywood and it too was pretty good. It just depends on what type of food/atmosphere you like.

    In order of best to worst:
    Tusker House (lunch only--breakfast and dinner are b-central)
    Tony's (wonderful atmosphere and good food)
    Captain's Grill (very restful)
    Planet Hollywood (the most "adult" atmosphere of the choices)
    Hollywood and Vine (I don't think it's as bad as everyone says, but I rarely go to DHS)
    Crystal Palace (bump that up if you don't mind kids, parents, and general chaos. The food's fine)
    Chef Mickey's (like an icepick to the brain, do it at the risk of your sanity)

    For what it's worth:

    planet Hollywood - We have been a couple times. Food is average and it it usually crazy busy there. We (DW and I) were seated one time upstairs in the middle and it was so loud we couldn't even hear each other - we asked to change tables and were given a better one. Rank in this group 6/6)

    crystal palace - this is pretty much a can't miss for us. Even though DS is now 14 he still enjoys it. We have been for all meals and each is superb (it is a buffet with Pooh characters). The atmosphere is great because you are smack-dab in the middle of MK - full of Disney magic. (I guess the Disney magic thing is contingent on whether you subscribe to that!) Rank in this group 1/6)

    chef mickey - Have been to the breakfast and I liked it a lot. We have never been to other meals but have heard the food is just ho-hum for those. My DS (12 at the time) and my DN (9 at the time) absolutely loved it. The food selection at the buffet was great for them (read: lots of sugary items). The food selection for adults was good too - it was a typical Disney buffet. Rank in the group 3/6.

    Tusker - Been once for breakfast. Typical Disney buffet. If you do breakfast here (or any park restaurant for that matter) try to get a ressie before 9 (park opening) - it is fun to walk through the park all by yourself without the hustle and bustle of the crowd. I seem to remember the price being a little high but I think that was due to the increased season. Rank in this group 4/6.

    Hollywood and vine - Been for Fantasmic! package. This was just OK for me. I think the buffet is more eclectic than the norm. We had a glass breaking incident here - so bad memories! Rank in this group 5/6.

    tonys town square - Loved it! Order off the menu place which is refreshing in this list! I was very happy with the food and in light of all the bad reviews Tony's gets I was pleasantly surprised. My DW was not completely happy with her meal however and the service was so-so. Rank in this group 2/6.

    captains grille - never been - did not rank.

    HTH!:thumbsup2

    It's one credit per person. On both of our visits (wish we had stopped after the first time), it was rude hostess, bad service (took 20 minutes to get drinks, tables never cleared of dishes, waited another 20 minutes for bill); food was mediocre at best...and that's when there was food...there were often empty bins, the food was lukewarm, etc. The restaurant was filthy--garbage on the floor under the tables, sticky tables, etc.
