I've done the Cali on all of my WDW trips and beinfg an adventurous eater, you'll enjoy it. Take a look at my TR as I dined here on 10/11/2017. Not too many updates back

We have our favorites - mostly quick service - but do like to try something new every trip. We have only repeated one table service place (Il Mulino at the Swan) and otherwise have done one or two TS meals at most each time, always different spots. Besides lunch at Be Our Guest, the one non-negotiable place is Lotus Blossom in China, where my son MUST go to have his orange chicken. You'd think there were no Chinese restaurants where we live, but there are at least half a dozen within two miles, plus Thai and Vietnamese.

Just to update: my husband reminded me that we also repeated Tusker House two years in a row because our son loved the characters and husband loved the buffet.

I'm a West Coaster, and at DLR I just stick with what I know I like. But at WDW, from now on, I will be trying something new each time.

Our last trip, we tried 2 new places, Prime Time Cafe and Biergarten. Loved both of them, but Biergarten was a definite stand-out. I will return.

We typically do a mix.

Always eat at California Grill, the Brown Derby and Columbia Harbor House.

We eat at Jiko, Citricos, Narcoossee's, Victoria and Albert, etc., frequently, but not every trip.

Usually try one or two new places each trip. This trip (returned home 9/15) we tried Tiffin's (which was amazing) and Restaurant Marrakesh (which was not, but the belly dancer was great). Also ate at Flying Fish for the first time in many years -- certainly the first time since the redo.

Fun topic!

Just depends for us. Kinda picky eaters that don't like to try different stuff. If there is somewhere new that appeals to me I'll try it otherwise I stick with what I know I will like!
