    I love Le Cellier, but the best meal I have ever eaten in WDW, was at Artists Point. Wonderful food and an amazing server. It was a great night!

    For us the must do to start the trip is Chef Mickeys. Gives us that were at Disney feeling!
    Best meal is probably Ohana- can't miss it.

    I agree with all of these. Ohana is great, loved Le Cellier back when it was 1 dining credit, and always like Wolfangs. Chef Mickeys is a good breakfast too.

    A place that is a more off the beaten path was the plaza in MK. The staff was so nice, the meal was simple and good, and their desserts are too die for! I love butter pecan icecream and don't have it at home since DD is allergic to it. The waitress suggested the butter pecan ice cream I was leery because it was sugarless. It was the best I have ever had!!!!!

    Also Chefs De France was a great meal and the sorbets for dessert were out of this world!

    As far as a total dining experience, California Grill at fireworks time with your significant other cannot be beat at WDW.

    Eating at the Wilderness Lodge is a must. The past two trips we've eaten at Whispering Canyon, but this year we're going to finally get back to our favorite restaurant in the world, Artist Point.

    It's now a tradition for us to have breakfast at Crystal Palace on our first full day. This will be the third trip in a row for that tradition, and I hope it will continue in the future!

    'Ohana for Dinner is also a must do family tradition for us. We've always found the food to be good and the overall atmosphere is always fun! Good food and family fun.

    I also enjoy California Grill, but is less family oriented and more expensive. The food is better there than most WDW restaurants. It is a really great dining experience. We don't do it on every trip, but we enjoy splurging there once in a while.

    My favorite place to dine at WDW is Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian. I never miss it...and watching Wishes from the balcony afterwards is a giant PLUS

    Close second is Le Cellier - another one that I never miss!

    At Epcot: Hands down its Le Cellier

    At Magic Kingdom: Liberty Tree Tavern is my favorite - its just good comfort food - I like the dinner meal as it reminds me of all the thankfulness that I have in my life (Its truly a thanksgiving day meal)

    At Hollywood Studios - Lunch at Mama Melrose.

    At the resorts, Victoria and Alberts, but that is a once in a lifetime thing. I also love Hoop De Do Revue - yes, its cheesy, but the fried chicken is always done so darn well! Also, Whispering Canyon at WL has a never ending Milk Shake - I think the most is 4 milkshakes by one of our party at some point in trying.

    If you have small girls - Breakfast at Cinderellas Castle - not for the food (which is just okay), but for the sparkle in their eyes the whole time you are there.
