    Question Where Should We Eat?

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's just i've been busy and all. Anyways... as my spring break is just around the corner, we've decidedto go to WDW. i know, yay me!! but also, my boyfriend and his family is going, and our parents want us to all go out to each with other. And im the one who has 2 pick the resturaunt, and i don't want anything to fancy and expensive, but i want it special as it's my boyfriend and his family's first trip to the world.

    So, does anyone have any ideas of where a 14 year old, and her parents who are experienced, and a 14 your old, his parents, and a sister who's a senior in high school, who have never been before, should go eat??? any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I always think the Crystal Palace is a good place to eat. If you can tolerate Pooh that is. You just can't beat the deal. I can't remember how much it is off the top of my head, but I remember it being reasonable considering it is a buffett. Great food and you don't feel like they are trying to rush you out.

    You can do 2 awesome things at once if you book at Mama Melroses in MGM. Ask for the Fantasmic Dinner package. The food is really good and you also get really decent seats for the show without having to wait 2 hours in line. We have done it 2 times in one year and it works awesome every time.

    Personally, I'd opt for 50s Prime Time at MGM. The food is really good (think old-fashioned comfort foods like fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast, etc.) and the atmosphere is fun and lively. I've never had a bad meal there. Plus, I believe you can do the Fantasmic Dinner package at this restaurant as well. Have fun!!!

    The 50's cafe is cool but you can only get the Fantasmic Dinners at The Brown Derby and Mama Melrose's. Both places have good food plus the reserved seating for Fantasmic.

    I'd also go for the 50's prime time cafe... I went there with my husband and his family about three years ago, and it was such a fun family restaurant!

    KUNGALOOSH!!!

    I suggest you eat at Mitsukoshi Teppanyaki at the japan pavilion in epcot. It's cool because they make it a show for you while they cook the food right in front of you.

    Whispering Canyon Cafe is a fun place to eat with a group of people. Will keep things on the lighter side too...not so serious!!!

    Depends on where you'll be and how long you have.

    Polynesian Resort - Ohana's
    MGM- 50's Primt Time Cafe
    MK- Liberty Tree Tavern/Crystal Palace both are pretty good.
    EPCOT- Le Cellier is my personal favorite. Though there is a lot to choose from.
    AK- Rainforest Cafe

    Ohana! I don't think it is too expensive. Especially if you consider all the food you get. Ask for a seat by the window and you can see Wishes. They pipe the music in so you can listen and watch. It's great!
