    Hi Erin! I love the panel and reading your answers! Which dinner do you prefer, Liberty Tree or Cape May Cafe (clambake)? Have reservations for ohana,boma,crystal palace,and Le Cellier. Any thoughts/other suggestions? Thank You!

    Wow Carolyn, you just made my day. Thank you!

    I just read your question out loud to my family and immediately my husband started shouting "Cape May" and my 9-year-old twins shouted "Liberty Tree," so clearly this is a matter of personal opinion. Really both of these restaurants are fine, but I happen to also prefer the food at Cape May over Liberty Tree. The Liberty food is like you'd find at a Thanksgiving dinner -- and to me there's nothing like homemade for that type of fare. The Cape May seafood buffet has an all-you-care to eat spread of shrimp, mussels, and clams, just like you'd find in my home state of Maine. I'd make your choice based on which type of food you prefer and where you'll be for the day. If you're spending the day in the Magic Kingdom, then Liberty Tree wins. If you're staying in the Epcot resorts area, then Cape May is the way to go.

    As for your other choices, all are good. If anything is missing, I'd say that you could add a meal at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The 50s Prime Time Diner and the Sci-Fi Dine-In both have some seriously awesome Disney Themeing. Another thing to think about is whether you'd like to splurge on a signature meal. These gourmet restaurants offer incredible gourmet fare in an environment that you could bring your kids to. A classic signature experience is the California Grill where, if you time it right, you can watch the Wishes fireworks while you dine. My favorite signature restaurant is Artist Point in the Wilderness Lodge - delicious and relaxing.

    I also like several other of the restaurants in the World Showcase area of Epcot. If you wanted to branch out a bit from the steakhouse, you could have Japanese hibachi (they cook on the table) at Teppan Edo, or cous cous and kebabs at Restaurant Marrakesh.

    Now that I've gotten going, it's hard to stop. There are so many great dining choices at WDW, I think you'll just have to stay longer to enjoy them all :-)

    Have a great trip!
