    I don't think you can go wrong with any of them....it depends on what type of food you are looking for. We enjoy Cantina de San Angel.

    I am from Texas so I did not enjoy the Cantina de San Angel. At Sunshine Season, you can have a choice of different foods so if you are going with a group that might help. We also liked Lotus Blossum (?) in China. It just depends on what you want to try. Good luck and I hope you have a wonderful trip.

    Sunshine Seasons definately. It's some of the best food that's not the normal "burger and fries" ware. The food is very good and very fresh. Everyone from the vegetarian to the carnivore can find something they like here. Word of advice though, do not go druing the traditional lunch times or at peak ride times for Soarin'. If you don't have any other time though, the traffic flow shouldn't be to terrible. I make sure to hit Sunshine Seasons every time I'm there.

    The Cantina de San Angel was okay when I ate there. I have to agree with Contemporary that Sunshine Seasons is the best option. It has way better food than a burger or chicken sandwich. They serve salads, sushi and hot meals that could double as dinners. If you have the meal plan I definitely recommend going there because you can get some hand dipped ice cream for dessert. My personal favorite is the black forest ham sandwich and a nice strawberry ice cream. Another recommendation I have is the counter service in Germany, but that's if you like Bratwurst. They make apple strudel though. The other CS places all seemed to be that same food you can get anywhere else in the park.

    You left out the Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK. Wonderful fish & chips with outside tables and chairs in an out of the way location overlooking World Showcase. I hardily recommend it!

    Cheers!

    I second that one. Can't ever pass it by. And I don't even like fish.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    I hear you! We ate there and were very disappointed. Those darn Yankees may enjoy it, but we Texans know better! (However, the Fiesta Margaritas are to die for!)

    I like the roast beef sandwich at the Electric Umbrella with the pineapple coleslaw. The Electric Umbrella is never as packed as Sunshine Seasons.

    I voted for the German place. I LOVE a good bratwurst.

    I am not a fan of Cantin De San Angel. Maybe it's because I'm a Texan and eat Mexican food about 3 times a week but it was not very authentic to me. The drinks there though are great

    Ihave not tried any of the other ones.

    Go for the bratwurst. It is very good. (Then go for a snowcone in Mexico)
    I love the fish and chips outside the Rose and Crown, but prefer to go for sitdown there.

    I liked the Chinese fast food best. For a great view I liked UK best. Sunshine has a wide variety of food for accomodating picky eaters but the view is not as great as eating on the water front. Unusual would be Tangerine in Morocco.

    When my family enters EPCOT, the first thing we do is head towards Mexico's Cantina. We have never gone a trip without eating there or San Angel Inn. That mexican food cannot compare to anything for hundreds of miles! Trust me, I've looked!
