    I've eaten at the Garden Grill (Epcot), Crystal Palace and Liberty Tavern (Magic Kingdom). They all serve American-type food- chicken, steak, seafood... The food has always been good, and the experiences have been great! I'm planning on going to Chef Mickey's next summer with my two nephews (5 and 7 y.o.)- heard lots of good things about it! :mickey:

    Garden Grill was one of my favorites, though we haven't been in a couple of years. We would go for a very late lunch/early dinner, and it would be empty - plenty of character time. The food was served family-style - a skillet of chicken, steak, and catfish (really yummy), plus a separate kid's plate.

    'Ohana has a very nice family-style breakfast, again less crowded and less rushed. It's nice to not have to get up to get food from the buffet, especially when you have little kids along.

    The Cape May Cafe breakfast was nice, too. Minnie hung out at the entrance while other characters made the rounds in their beachwear. That was a buffet, with a lot of choices.

    Crystal Palace was nice to see Pooh & Friends, but they interupt their rounds of the tables to do a silly song & dance thing. It happened to occur just as Tigger was getting to our table, and after the parade around the restaurant Tigger was not his bouncy self when he got back.

    My favorite character restaurant no longer exists: The Soundstage at Disney-MGM Studios (where Playhouse Disney Live now is). It had the widest assortment of characters - and a lot of them at a time. The one at Hollywood & Vine was fun, too, but they no longer have character meals there.

    We love Chef Mickey's for breakfast and Crystal Palace for lunch. Garden Grill is next on our list to try.
