    We go there every trip. The first time with a 6 year old, 2nd w/ 2 & 8 year olds, and 3rd w/ 4 & 10 years old. They love the place. They like the kids pizza. It's alot of fun to watch the divers interact with the people in the restaurant and watch all the fishes.

    I have only been one time and I really enjoyed it. We will be going on our next trip. I can't wait to see the kids faces when we walk in! I really enjoy this restaurant.

    I am also hoping to eat for my first time at the Coral reef this December with my future Husband. So far, I have read on many sites that it is a good place to eat and also by looking at the menu it looks really good too. Here is a link to the menu: Coral Reef Dinner Menu - Epcot

    We didn't actually eat at CR this last trip but spent a long time in the Seas pavillion so I am guessing if you get a table with a good view of the aquarium the kids will be entertained enough for you to actually be able to enjoy the food! Last time I ate there was in 2001 and everything we tried was great, I remember trying alligator sausage.

    Um, Alligator Sausage is a bit outside of my palate, but I think the restaurant itself definitely sounds like it is worth a shot!

    We enjoyed two visits to Coral Reef last year, once with the kids, who loved watching the fish and the divers in the tank. Kids menu is pretty much standard fare, but the adult menu was more adventurous. The menu changes seasonally, so both visits had different meals, and I see the current menu (on AllEarsNet.com) is different too.

    A suggestion - make sure to ask the waiter about the entrees, especially if you're not sure what something in it is. The menu did a good job of describing the dishes, but I made the mistake of not asking what something was and was quite surprised by the spicy flavor. It was very good, just not what I was anticipating.

    Also, the Creamy Lobster Soup is wonderful, and not to be missed!

    Have a great time!

    My husband and I went there July of 2005 for our anniversary and loved it. I remember going as a kid with my parents too and I remember really enjoying it. I remember a diver coming up to our window and waving...scared me at first, but got a good laugh out of it too.

    We go there every year. It helps if your on the Dining Plan. I agree with Disneydame, Creamy Lobster Soup is to die for!

    I have had the Alligator Sausage before and believe me, you won't be able to tell the difference between it and any other sausage other than the fact it is leaner than pork sausage. If you like Polska Kielbasa or bratwurst you will enjoy it.
