I am trying to plan a trip (that may or may not end up happening depending on finances) 18 months out. We are hoping to be back in the world early Dec. 2013. I know it's crazy to already be thinking of meals, but, hey, I'm a planner!! I know things will change and shift in the next year before I can even make reservations, but I thought I would get people's opinion on dining. Our plan is to do Deluxe Dining, so we will only be doing sit down meals and some meals that take 2 credits (since 3 sit downs a day is A LOT), so I would love to hear what your favorite dining experiences have been. We are willing to eat in the park or resorts as we will have a car so we can easily move about. So which restaurants had the best food, best character experiences, best atmosphere for you?
I'll even start!! Our last trip to the world was short, and we only ate one place in the park, but we had lunch at Hollywood & Vine. I have avoided that place on past trips as it always had openings so I thought it wouldn't be good, but it turned out to be one of our favorites!! The atmosphere is nothing stellar, but the food we had was so good. My son and I could have kept eating the chicken Alfredo all day!! We will definitely be putting this place on our list again.
Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Flying Fish at Boardwalk, Tutto Italia in Epcot and Coral Reef at Epcot. I know the reviews of CR can be on the negative side but we've gone on our last two trips and it's a face of our party of 8! Mmm, now I'm hungry
It's funny that H&V was your favorite, because we had our worst dining experience there.
As far as best, I love Tutto Italia for the ambiance and food. Liberty Tree is also a favorite for lunch. (can you say ooey gooey toffee cake?) Narcoosee's was also wonderful as we were able to watch "Wishes" from our table during dessert.
Mickey's Backyard BBQ - BESTexperience and great food! We've done Hoop De Due about 4 times, but that one time at MBBBQ was so laid back and relaxing - almost if we were at picnic with hundreds of friends/family! LeCellier - Most memorable meal - Filet Mignon was the best I ever had! SciFi - Best atmosphere and value Whispering Canyon - Great entertainment for the kids!
Coral Reef-the scenery makes this a must do for us every trip. The kids just love watching the turtles and fish.
Le Cellier- I had the best time there. This was in part because we had an amazing waiter. He was great and even brought out chapagne and strawberries for my DH and mines anniversary. With that being said it is not worth 2 TS at least to us.
Chef Mickeys- Its our tradition for our last day right before we leave for airport. Its our way to say goodbye to the fab five.
Have a great time and happy eating
