WDW question: we need to make our dining reservations soon so I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations of not to miss places? One factor is that our kids are very picky eaters. Thanks! I also asked on MW Florida but would love any additional suggestions.
My favorites from the trips I've taken were Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge, O'hana at Polynesian, Le Cellier at Epcot, California Grill at Contemporary (awesome outdoor deck for Wishes viewing), and Yak & Yeti at Animal Kingdom. I've heard Coral Reef at Epcot is amazing if you like seafood, which I'm not really into much so I haven't visited. If you want to check out Be Our Guest or Cinderella's Royal Table, you will pretty much need a reservation as soon as you can, but you can always wait in line for lunch at BOG. For breakfast, I'd definitely recommend Kona Cafe at the Polynesian simply for the Tonga Toast, it's a giant french toast stuffed with banana. Finally, I'd suggest checking out Rose and Crown at Epcot for the pub experience and hopefully you catch Carl working. Hopefully Dave comes along to comment, he's been there more and can comment more on the places I haven't tried. If you have any questions of cuisine or anything, let me know. - CM_Shadowgamer  2312.8 #46 8:31PM
Thanks so much, appreciate all of this!!   - MinnieMousewife  726.4 #206 9:14PM
This is almost exactly the list I give to people who ask me. I only add the lighthouse sandwich at harbor galley in magic kingdom. It's divine.  - lostgirl7988  692.4 #221 9:58PM
Oh thanks!  I forgot about that, my sister was telling me about that sandwich too.  πŸ˜Š - MinnieMousewife  726.4 #206 10:28PM

Thanks for posting this as I am also wanting to know of the good places to eat at WDW. I'm going in February. On my list are Sci-Fi Dine In, Be Our Guest & 50's prime time cafe. :)  - LuvsMimisHouse  467.2 #386 8:51PM
Awesome!  Hope you have a great trip.  I've asked a ton of ? on MW Florida and they are super helpful.  πŸ˜„ - MinnieMousewife  726.4 #206 9:16PM
Thanks hope you have a great time too! I'll have to go check out the wdw sideπŸ‘ - LuvsMimisHouse  467.2 #386 9:45PM
have you made reservations for be our guest yet? you need to do them immediately if you want to go for dinner. - nicoleface  1746.5 #67 9:21AM
We've done 50's prime time, we thought it was really fun and the food was good, too. On our next trip in a couple years, we're going to try Sci-Fi - GoofyMom77  469.0 #385 9:36AM
@GoofyMom77 I am so excited about the 50's cafe! I love that era :). Are the portions big? @nicoleface Of course there was nothing available for dinner, but I don't mind going to lunch. We booked our trip last minuet😬. But did reserve for 50's cafe & Sci-Fi dine in πŸ‘ - LuvsMimisHouse  467.2 #386 12:54PM
I have dine at Sci-Fi and the menu definitely improved from the first time we went. Definitely get that reservation in so you can sit in a car. My son gets the hot dog, and because of his lactose intolerance. They gave him flatbread instead of a bun. He scarfed it down. We also had lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table. I did not care for my food. It was the only vegetarian option available. My son had grilled chicken with rice and vegetables. He liked what he had a lot. - Lelundrial  441.2 #417 1:02PM
The portions were normal people size, not tiny but not giant either. - GoofyMom77  469.0 #385 3:44PM
If you don't get your choice, keep checking, as I'm sure reservations get canceled all the time, especially with the deposit rules at some places.  They also have an app that you can use to make reservations (don't remember what it's called, I didn't have it on my phone).  You can easily see what is available and book it yourself.  We used it on our trip in march to book a last minute dinner at nine dragons (I don't recommend it if you are used to legit Chinese food 😏).  For kids, I second cinderella's royal table and be our guest, more for ambience than food, but it's still good.  I haven't eaten there yet, but the Biergarten is a top choice for me, for personal reasons, lol! πŸ’— - bluefairy  643.3 #248 1:36PM
Thank you, appreciate your suggestions!  πŸ˜Š - MinnieMousewife  726.4 #206 3:42PM
Have you downloaded the My Disney Experience App yet? I think you can add/delete dining reservations from it and see menus - TinkerAli  226.4 #1494 3:54PM

the only dish out of these that was not good at all was the cheese fondue.

For those that went to the party last night; how was it? What were the crowds like? What was the coolest character you saw? And how did wristband distribution work; did the people that were in the park during the day have to go out and go to a ticket booth to get it and then go back in? Sorry for all the question, but this is my first year doing the Halloween party.
We were there last night- early entry starts at 4pm, but it was super crowded when we arrived at 5pm. You have a special entrance to go through at the gates- then you get a wristband right there and a small goodie bag for candy. Once it's 7pm- you can't get on any rides or walk through parts of the park without a wristband. The rides were practically all walk-ons or less than 20 minute waits! Trick or treat lines were long- but moved fast. Dance parties were fun with variety of music. Fireworks were incredible! Don't miss them! Didn't see the parade or many characters walking around, but then we weren't looking for them either. Well worth the ticket price! Dress up- everyone does! Have fun! - princessSue  261.9 #1088 9:12AM
There were crowds but the candy stations moved very quickly. Some thrill attractions had longer waits (30-40 minutes) while others were walk on. You could get a wristband in the park in Frontierland, where the pin traders use to be. The far right main entry gates were reserved for party goers. Either provided bags and wristbands. The villains on Main Street were very cool but there was a plethora of characters for every taste. Have a great time! - minigirl1156  672.7 #230 9:10AM
Like what they said, it was crowded during the mix in time (which is typical). The thing I noticed was the conjested areas around the ROA, having two treat trails, POTC and Mansion being in the same area, causing a lot of traffic. But other than that, the crowds were a lot less after fireworks and the second parade - BaseballMickey_CM  5790.2 #13 10:26AM
I learned last year, wait until crowds dense out after 8 to get in haunted mansion - MarshaMouse  3640.0 #25 10:41AM
