    chef mickeys - a good choice with kids of course. if you have older kids you might consider a later dining time becasue the crowds are slightly smaller. If you time if right and are by windows you can sometimes watch Wishes while dining. Good quality buffet dining, Have the camreas ready for the characters.

    crystal palace - again a good choice, if you time it for off peak hours it can be slightly less hectic. Again have cameras ready. Standard good quality buffet dining

    coral reef - a great choice, one of our favorites. the lunch menu is a bit limited, but the dinner menu is pretty extensive. Dining by the aquarium windows is a great draw of course. a quite dining spot, very relaxing and very good quality meals. pricey but worth it.

    whispering canyon cafe - a noice choice for lunch or breakfast. great atmosphere at the Wilderness Lodge. limited lunch menu but very good. Lunchtime rodeo for he kids is a lot of fun. Reasonably priced.

    If you do eat at Coral Reef, be sure to order the CHOCOLATE WAVE. It is quite possibly the best dessert on Disney property!!!

    Haha! You picked all of the one's that I haven't eaten at. The only one that I have been to is Whispering Canyon. It was great! However, don't ask for ketchup unless you want alot.

    thanks for all the replies.

    yes, dont tell me about the ketchup...my kids will surely ask for it and if I know the secret I may or may not let them ask for it...better not to know.

    chef mickeys--fun, loud, decent food, get a good end table for the characters, pics horribly expensive and they got snotty with me cause I didnt want them(rare cranky employee) We did the first dinner seating and were the first in line.
    whispering canyon cafe- Loud , fun and great basic food, very filling. Servers will play if you want and leave you alone if you dont want. Pony races for the kids are neat, and they dont give you spoons you have to ask
    Hope that helps
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"
