I am thinking about reserving dinner at Ariel's Grotto for the WOC show. We are an adult party of five. Have you been there for the WOC special? What are your thoughts? I am getting very mixes reviews online. (photo not related, well Totoro's face explains my frustration, lol)

If you use the search feature you will get lots of info. Just know that you don't watch from the restaurant, you eat there then get tickets to go stand in the center of viewing area. - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 9:42AM
Aw, man! Totoro is AWESOME! ^-^ - Mr. Fredrickson  120.4 #3225 9:43AM
SueBayou, I know about the separate viewing area. I guess my question was in reference to good, service, etc. Is it worth the cost? - Viktorius  137.2 #2930 9:44AM
We did it in June. I had read the mixed reviews as well and decided to try it for myself. We were a party of four adults and two children. The food was not good at all. I know others have posted it was very good, so maybe we caught them on a bad day. As a result, we will skip next time. On the other hand, we really enjoyed the preferred seating for Fantasmic. This is my opinion. - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  99.6 #3602 9:56AM
I did this on Wednesday. Not worth the money. Food was just okay. Service was horrible. But world of color view was awesome. You can read my more detailed review in the food section. Picnic meals aren't great either. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #179 9:59AM
Thank you BibbidiBobbidiBoo and JenInWonderland. I read the reviews in the food section. I appreciate your more current reviews. This helps a lot. I am beginning to think the fast pass is a better idea - Viktorius  137.2 #2930 10:03AM
We did it in dec food was great. We had a blast. We were a party of 6right adults and one child and yes we would do it again was well worth it - cowboygoofy  219.0 #1742 10:07AM
I did the woc package in august,it was good I liked ariels grotto and for woc u can either be in the wet zone where we where if u want, not many people go up there since u don get wet or not in the wet zone, more people who do the package don't go in the wet zone so behind us it seemed pretty crowded, it u do it though try not to get to the show right before it starts since a lot of people do the dinner package. - nodell111  166.4 #54 10:16AM
It is great we were there during labor day weekend. Great view. - Joeysariel  24.3 #6631 10:19AM
I have only had breakfast at Ariels and it was great, but have eaten at Wine Country Trattoria many many times and the food is wonderful!!! - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 10:25AM
Bf and I have done it twice at Grottos. Loved the food, the atmosphere, the viewing area, still don't get why there's peoe wouldn't like it....go for it, it was amazing - bren12  38.1 #5319 10:34AM
honestly I think the package is only good for the tickets. my boyfriend and I did the package a couple months ago and the food was not that great. kinda bad for what the price was but I liked the woc seating so in a way I guess its worth it. - ericuhhhh  28.2 #6165 11:29AM
My husband and I book the dinner last year with our 3 kids and we really liked it. The food was good and the reserved seating for WOC was pretty good. - triedlinger  5.1 #18456 11:52AM
So from I see there's a lot of mixed reviews. From those who did and didn't like it, id like to hear what to stay away from to eat and what was good. Thanks in advance! - Oinker34  1448.8 #116 12:00PM
Agreed Oinker34 - Viktorius  137.2 #2930 1:19PM
We did it last year and everyone loved the food. We had tri tip and my MIL had cioppino. We all really liked it a lot. - MellieKay  286.4 #1000 3:44PM
Totoro is my favorite !!!! - lulubelle2046  7.7 #13194 4:14PM
boyfriend had the tri tip which was hard and chewy and I had the sausage type pasta and it was way tooo spicy and gross. the appetizers were whatever. just olives and cheeses and little salad and I was all excited for the deserts but they didn't even taste that great.. just looked cool. haha. I just thought I could of ate somewhere else for way better taste and about the same price. I like benihanas and there the same price and way better. haha. but like I said woc seating great!! - ericuhhhh  28.2 #6165 4:28PM
