    We are coming Mar 2012 and my dinning list has the following. We can pick 6.. Le Cellier / Chef Mickeys / Ohana / 1900 park fare (breakfast) / Whispering Canon .. and the undecided.. sci-fi dinner or Big River Grille (not sure what one).. help me pick 6!

    Hi Jennifer,

    You have some great choices so far!


    Le Cellier is my absolute favorite restaurant in all of Disney. Their Filet Mignon with garlic butter sauce is incredible, and I'm craving their pretzel bread as I type this! Chef Mickey's is always a great choice, the character interaction is fantastic and the food selection is good. Dinner at 'Ohana is another "must do" for our family. The coconut rolling, limbo and hula dancing lessons make it extra fun. I'm sure you'll enjoy 1900 Park Fare's characters and the antics at Whispering Canyon Cafe.


    As far as the other 2, I would choose the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater over Big River Grille & Brewing Works. While the food at The Sci-Fi is nothing unique or overly exciting, the atmosphere is very cool. This is the biggest draw to this restaurant. It's not everyday that you get to dine at a table that is inside a car! While the Big River Grille is nice, I found it to be very much like all of the other brew pubs that I have visited through the years. You may also want to consider Boma -Flavors of Africa. This is an absolute "must do" for our family. We love everything about it, from the atmosphere inside the Animal Kingdom Lodge to the delicious food. The salmon is particularly great and the "zebra domes" are one of the best desserts I've had in a while.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
