    Have to agree that Chef Mickey's is just overpriced for what you get. We ate there for the first and only time back in 2009. DH was so unimpressed that he's sworn off all dinner buffets at WDW. I did sneak in a couple for our September trip though.

    Have to agree and I wonder if we had the same waitress! She was a doll! I too had the pork and it was hands down the best meal of our trip....I talk about it all the time:cloud9:

    I agree with not cancelling! I almost cancelled Kouzzina because of horrible reviews last year, but we stuck with it. It was DELISH!

    From your list:
    Really dislike Teppan Edo. Have much better Japanese here at home.
    Wolfgang Puck was the worst meal I've ever had at Disney. Now Wolfgang Puck Express is a must do for us every year!

    I think I agree with most of what others have said besides Ohana, I am absolutely in love with the place. My major two that I could never eat at again are:

    Garden Grill and Yak N Yeti

    My husband and myself both got sick at these restaurants on our honeymoon trip.

    In general, I think most buffets are not the greatest most are very bland.

    This has been a very interesting thread to read....took a while but worth it.

    While it's true that everyone has different tastes, when I see the same places mentioned over and over I tend to put more weight into the comments.

    CM: if you want pictures with the characters and don't mind paying through the nose to do it in an air conditioned atmostphere then it's perfect.

    Coral Reef: we still talk about how lousy the food and service was and that was a year ago.

    Contemp Cafe: absolutely the worst hamburger I've ever had in my LIFE......it made me actually miss those Stewart Sandwiches the 7-11 used to sell.

    ABC Comm: This thread reminded me we had eaten, no...gagged, there.......just when I had successfuly put it out of my memory :sad2:

    Nine Dragons: Your local Chinese rest is FAR better.

    As for the Columbia Harbor House, you can't expect too much or you will be disappointed. We eat either there or Backlot Express everyday, the food always taste the same so there are no surprises.

    I was surprised to see Tuttos mentioned , we ate there last week and loved it....but we tend to really like Italian food. The service was second to none.

    I agree 100%. There is no way to tell for sure where the illness came from. Its really not fair to blame a particular restaurant unless you know 4sure.

    Not to sound mean or anything, but before you ordered the skillet didnt you read the menu?? it tells you everything that is included. But thanks for the heads-up about the grease/potatoes. yuck! ....I do agree with you about CM's & Tony's....both are GROSS! Tony's i think is much more disgusting thou.

    I don't regret eating at any restuarant otherwise we wouldn't know what we were missing.
    The restaurants we would never retrun to:
    Chefs De France-food was really bad. I got the filet. First time was over cooked. Second time was very rare ( I ordered it medium). I just didn't think the food tasted good at all.
    California Grill-The only thing that was great was the view. I only ordered a flatbread and thought the one I had at the Contempo Cafe was much better.
    Places we love: Prime Time, Sci Fi, WPE, Kona Cafe, Captains Grille, EOS and even the food court at the Pop :goodvibes

    We've dined at all but about 5 TS at WDW, some have been more than 2 years ago so its hard to judge on the quality now.

    I don't regret trying anything new but in the last 2 years, my worst meals have been:

    1. Kouzzina
    2. Whispering Canyon Cafe
    3. Yak n Yeti
    4. San Angel Inn

    Kouzzina's was inedible; the other three were edible but undesirable.

    The only place I really regret eating was Boma breakfast (haven't done dinner). I know most people love it, but the service was very poor and food was just okay.

    house of blues...what started as a simple turkey club turned out to be food poisoning on a massive scale.

    I won't say regret...but I don't see us going back until I bring a grandchild and that's wayyyyy in the distance! CRT. I loved the character interaction, but the food was somewhat cold and we were DEFINTELY rushed through our meal. It's a great "Experience" but the food was our worst meal on site.

    Our worst dining experience was Chef Mickey's. There was absolutely nothing on the buffet that looked appetizing. We went for dinner, maybe we should try breakfast?

    The best food I have had during my stays were definitely O'Hana for breakfast and Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD, any meal :)

    Except for the monorail part, this was our experience there in April
    Also did not enjoy being herded like cattle before being seated
    We went on the recommendation of our daughter and her boyfriend who loved it. We did not :(

    1900 Park Fare for dinner was waaaaaayyyy over priced for not so great food. We liked other character buffets better, and they all cost less. The Drizella character was a bright spot though.

    And the most dissappointing was Yachtsmen Steakhouse. Horrible service, steak that was requested medium came out raw... twice, and the waiter tried to overcharge us by $50! It was also our only date night and we made babysitting arrangements for the kids so I was really looking forward to it :(.
