    Our first trip to Disney in Sept 2012! We are debating whether we should go to Epcot Coral Reef or Chefs De France for a table service. Also which is better Hollywood & Vine or sciFi dine in theater. Which has better food as well as portions?

    Hi Genalyn!  I'm so excited that you have booked your very first Walt Disney World vacation!  You will truly enjoy the experience that is the Most Magical Place on Earth!  My family and I have had the pleasure of dining in Epcot at both Chefs de France and Coral Reef, and I would recommend Chefs de France, hands down.  We loved Coral Reef for the aquarium-side seating (YAY!), and as my family and I love seafood, their fare was right up our alley.  Chefs de France offers a great variety of French cuisine, from such standards as French Onion Soup to phenomenal beef short ribs.  Personally, I happen to love the food that Chefs de France serves up, and I do enjoy being able to glance across at World Showcase Lagoon! As for Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater and Hollywood & Vine, they are really two totally different experiences. Hollywood & Vine offers up more buffet fare, with standards such as baked chicken, herb crusted salmon and pasta.  At Sci-Fi, the experience is more a throw back to the days of drive-in theaters, complete with Onion Rings, turkey sandwiches, hamburgers, and delicious milk shakes.  I love Sci-Fi for the fun, campy-ness of it all! Hope this helps you narrow down your choices! -Malanie
