    There are a couple of good sources:

    Birnbaum's Disney World Dining Guide is the "official" book. It gives a summary of each restaurant, meals it is open, price range, type of food.

    The Unofficial Dining Guide to WDW by Kevin Yee, claims to have "The Current Menus and Prices for All Restaurants at the Parks and Hotels." Which is impossible to do when the menus are changing constantly and the book is printed in advance. But, it may be useful.

    The very best place I think for current menus online is AllEarsNet.com

    I second the vote for allearsnet.com

    It's the best place for WDW trip planning...hands down. I've read maybe a dozen guide books. While they are informative, because they are printed maybe once a year, there is no way they can stay current. Deb Wills and her crew do a fabulous job keeping everything up to date! Menus, prices, planning tips, etc. It has everything you can imagine...and then some!

    I have the Birnbaums guide myself. I bought it before my last trip so I could choose my two table service meals. I like the book, but it did not help me decide, it just made me want to go to all of them!!

    I have some reviews on my site of resturants and events. AllEars.Net is THE best place to start planning a trip to WDW. Deb keeps it very updated.

    I got to meet Kevin Yee at the last Mousefest and he explained that the pricing should be accurate up until this October. October is the month he claimed both menus and prices would change if any. He actually lives near the parks and went to each restaurant for the book. His plan is to do that each year.

    the birnbaum's book is great. the dining book is nearly identical to the dining section in the big guide so i don't suggest getting both. i bought the dining book on amazon used and got it really cheap and wrote all sorts of notes in it like what places i really wanted to go to and what took the dining plan. plus its small enough that you can throw it in your bag and take it to the park. i suggest planning as much as you can mealwise but if you're at the parks and want a snack you can kinda read through and see what the places have so you don't end up at a place where your kids might not like anything.
    allears is great too because they go into a lot more detail than the book does. you could print out pages here and take them with you too. the only bad thing here is sometimes its outdated and you know disney can change in the blink of an eye, but its still a good place to get an overview
