    Hi Erin! We've had to delay our trip twice, but now planning on Feb 2010. Loved the dining plan last trip in 2007! Will do that again. What are your personal top ten favorite/most recommended table service restaurants? 2 kids (9 and 7), 3 adults. Thank U!

    Fun question! Table service dining is one of my family's biggest Disney activities. I'm getting very close to having dined at them all. There are so many great ones to choose from, that I'll give you a few of my personal favorites in several categories.

    Signature dining:
      Jiko, Animal Kingdom Lodge.
      Artist Point, Wilderness Lodge.
      California Grill, Contemporary.
      These are all out-of-this-world delicious!

    Character meals:
      Cinderella's Royal Table breakfast, Magic Kingdom - the best French toast anywhere and lots of love
      from the princesses.
      Tusker House breakfast, Animal Kingdom - buffet line has American classics plus unique African
      dishes and Donald Duck is a great host.
      Garden Grill dinner, Epcot - some food grown there at the Land pavilion plus the restaurant revolves.

    In the parks:
      Rose and Crown, Epcot - Fine food, but a great pub atmosphere.
      Teppan Edo, Epcot - Hibachi-style Japanese cooked on your table. Delicious, healthy choices and
      fun for the kids.
      Restaurant Marrakesh, Epcot - yummy cous-cous and belly dancers.
      Sci-Fi Dine-In, DHS. Actually the food is sort-of average, but how cool is it to dine at a table that looks
      like a car.
      50's Prime Time Cafe, DHS. Make sure you wash your hands or "Mom" will scold you :-)

    In the resorts:
      Whispering Canyon Cafe, Wilderness Lodge. Good food and awesome servers.
      The Wave, Contemporary. Very fresh food.
      Cape May Cafe, Beach Club. Lovely clambake.
      ESPN Club, Boardwalk. The best place to be if there's a big game on.

    There are many other wonderful choices, these are just the ones that make me the happiest.
