    What is your favorite table service restaurant that isn't in the parks? We have reservations for Chef Mickey's but looking for something different. We have Sci-Fi, Crystal Palace, CRT, Tusker House, and Via Napoli. Any Suggestions? DH, DS (11,9) &


    There are several, of course. But let me tell you a few 1-table service credit restaurants that really catch my eye (or appetite). 

    • Sanaa (Animal Kingdom Villas) is great for some more exotic food, as well as setting.
    • Kona Cafe (Polynesian) is noisy, but their breakfast is worth the trip, especially if you are going to the Magic Kingdom anyway.
    • 'Ohana (Polynesian) is great for dinner, with a entertaining experience and wonderful view. 
    • Whispering Canyon Cafe (Wilderness Lodge) is my pick of the litter, especially with sons 11 and 9. It is a fun dinner, and the food is really quite good.
    Any of these would be good choices, but I the the first and last are the best options. Write me back if you want any more dining information!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
