    Restaurant Suggestions

    Can anyone give me some advice. Its nearly 180 days until my visit to Disney and I am trying to complete my list of my chosen restaurants to visit.

    We are due to visit for 14 nights. I have chosen 13 different restaurants to visit but cant decide on the last one!

    Toss up betwen Olivia's Cafe at Old Key West or Trails End at Fort Wilderness or Grand Floridian Cafe at Grand Floridian Resort

    Any suggestions greatly received

    Would have liked to gone to Restaurant Marrakesh at Epcot or Maya Grill but they are not listed on the 2008 dining plan

    Many thanks

    Would you mind listing for us all of the other restaurants you are planning on visiting? That might make the choice easier. When in doubt I always choose the GF.

    I've heard Olivia's has gone downhill, I wouldn't go out of my way to go there but on the other hand I would go out of my way to go to Trail's End. Good food for the right price.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Sounds like a nice line up (personally I am not a fan of Tony's but that 's just my opinion) but as I mentioned in the above post I wouldn't go out of my way to go to Olivia's and now that I see you are not staying at Old Key West I definitely would not go. If you do decide on Trails End make it on a day when you are at the Magic Kingdom and you can take a boat right over to Fort Wilderness. Just make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to get from one place to another.

    Thanks for the advice

    We had planned to go to Tonys on one of the days we were in Magic Kingdom, but with your suggestion we could possibly change and go to Trails End on this day or do you have any other suggestions for Magic Kingdom which are included in the Dining Plan

    Regards

    I have visited both within the last month :
    Trails end is great for the money.... great homestyle cooking. this is a buffet, so you can go back for more.
    Olivia's food is great too .. you get tons of food. this is not a buffet.

    Either one you choose is GREAT eats ! Enjoy !

    If you really want Restaurant Marrakesh at Epcot or Maya Grill, don't let the fact that they are not on the official list scare you off. Disney has to negotiate contracts with the restaurants at the resorts and World Showcase every year. The ones at World Showcase tend to be added to the list VERY late in the year because they are not actually owned by Disney. So, ask Disney Dining to check their list. Both of those restaurants have participated in the DDP and I would be very surprised if they didn't in 2008.

    I thought Tony's was okay. The restaurant itself was neat though. We really liked the Palace restaurant. It is across the street from Casey's Corner at the opposite end of Main St from Tony's. Either that or Liberty Tree Tavern, which is a character meal. Either that, or hop the monorail to the Contemporary and eat at Chef Mickey's. Yummy and Mickey Mouse.
    Your list looks great and pretty well rounded. It is making me hungry.
