    Default Favorite Repeat Restaurants?

    I've been thinking about the places we've eaten while in WDW, and realized in just 4 trips, that there are a few restaurants at which we've eaten more frequently than others, and just have that "repeat" factor. So, I pose this 3 part question to all of you, especially those that have been to WDW frequently or perhaps live in FL:

    What (sit-down) restaurant have you been to the most times, how many times, and why?

    My answer turned out a tie:

    Artist Point, 4 times, (3 dinners and 1 breakfast) is our favorite restaurant in the entire world, though strangely enough, we haven't eaten there since 1999!

    Whispering Canyon Cafe, 4 times, (3 dinners, 1 lunch), we've gone to for the last two trips because we figured the kids would enjoy it more than AP. Also, I love BBQ, the atmosphere at WCC, and the Wilderness Lodge in general.

    Next trip, if all goes well, one of these will pull ahead when we make our traditional visit to WL!

    Okay, now what's YOURS???? (Table service!)
    Viva Darth Macho!

    For us it's:

    Boma, 6 Times - We love the variety & unique flavors. Even my wife who is a very picky eater wouldn't skip it during any trip. Plus we like to explore the resort before/after our meal since it's such a beautiful place.

    Crystal Palace, 6 Times - While the food isn't spectacular, it's still good. The atmosphere is nice too with it's victorian style. But the main reason we keep returning is my wife loves Eeyore.

    Wolfgang Puck Cafe' is a close second with 5. It has become our traditional first night meal & will most likely remain so.

    Sci Fi - We love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Our whole family looks forward to eating here. Reminds my husband and I of when we were kids going to the drive in. If we were only going to eat at one place while at WDW it would be here.

    Whispering Canyon - Good food and great fun!

    Coral Reef - Again eating around a giant aquarium full of fish and divers is so unique and we have always enjoy the food.

    Whispering Canyon (dinner) 3 times (4th coming up!) - we love the skillet and the atmosphere is fun.

    Ohana (dinner) 3 times (going on 4)- Love the flavor of the food and the variety!

    Donald's Safari Breakfast - (going on 4) - THis is a good character breakfast and they have the typical breakfast fare but also have items that have more of a unique flavor to them. And the character interaction has always been great!

    We have gone to the CA Grill twice and plan to do it again this trip.

    DH announced the other day that for him, Artists' Point is a must-do. (Wish he'd told me that before I drove myself nuts looking at menus!)

    Tokyo Dining-4 Times.
    It's a must do for me each trip since my first visit. Nice quiet atmosphere, great food, excellent service, and a nice view of the World Showcase.

    All my other repeat food stops are counter service. (I am able to eat at more places that way!)

    We rarely do TS outside of the parks. When we return to any restaurant its because of the food and the atmosphere.
    Here, in no particular order are our repeaters:
    Crystal Palace
    Biergarten
    Sci Fi
    50s Prime Time
    Le Cellier
    Garden Grill
    Teppan Edo
    Donald's Safari Breakfast

    I think that about covers it.

    Sci fi for lunch Narcoose's for dinner. Growing up we always did the Crysatl Palace for breakfast for years. Also San Angel Inn until I had a tray a margaritas dropped on my heaqd. Then it kind of lost something and it makes me feel sticky just to look at it.

    Biergarten - I think we eat there every trip. Good selection and good atmosphere. Everyone in our family has other personal favorites but everyone can agree on this restaurant!

    Ours are San Angel Inn and Kona Cafe. We have eaten at San Angel Inn every trip for the last 7 trips. We like the atmosphere and it has become a tradition. We have eaten at Kona every trip since 2008, often multiple times. I think we have been there about 12 times, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We love the food, have had good service, it is close to the MK, good atmosphere, and on the monorail.

    We eat breakfast or dinner at Chef Mickey's every trip. We usually go for dinner on a late arrival day or when MK is closing early for a special event. We go for breakfast on an early departure day when there isn't quite enough time to get to a park. We've been with a party of 12 and a party of 2. The food is usually fine, but the characters are always great!

    Other than that, we also tend to have dinner at the Grand Floridian Cafe and/or Whispering Canyon Cafe. We've been to each 3 times. Both are consistently good, but radically different!

    For our trip in October, we're repeating California Grill, LeCellier, and of course, Chef Mickey's. We're trying Hollywood Brown Derby
    and Citricos for the first time. I'm looking forward to every meal!

    On every Disney Vacation we hit:

    Princess Breakfast in Norway...We think the girls are going to age out of this, but they keep asking for it!! 5x here for us!

    Chef Mickey's- I just think this is the classic of WDW. I have memories of this being THE CHARACTER Dining Place, back in the day...you wanted to see Mickey, you had breakfast at the Contemporary. Food is good, and it's just FUN 5X here as well.

    O'Hana and Teppen Edo, Le Cellier and Kona cafe are the next favorites that we don't miss on any trips.
    We are cutting out the Crystal Palace and Coral Reef this trip. Going to hit the Liberty Tree Tavern, ate there 6 years ago and enjoyed it, so we'll try it again! Wanted to try some different places in Epcot over the Coral Reef, and I honestly don't have any favorite in the studios.

    Default Most At One Place

    Too many times to count, but it has to be Kona for breakfast, which we think is the best breakfast in WDW. Otherwise there are so many places, we don't repeat, so we can try them all. You should try that, the places you repeat are great, but there are so many great choices, you could go for weeks, never repeat and always have great food!
