    You guys are all so great but I have a question for Erin: based on food alone which character breakfast do you think has the best food? Also, if you could pick 5 sit down dinners what would be your faves?- I'm traveling with dh, ds9 & ds6. Thanks so m

    For character breakfasts, most of the buffet-style meals are fairly similar at breakfast. There are primarily typical American favorites: eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, carbs in the form of waffles, pancakes, French toast, etc., along with a few international breakfast items that would be typical to the international guests of WDW (something like miso soup for example). Of the buffet meals, based on food alone, I think I like Tusker House the best. There is a the largest choice of "different" breakfast items here, so in addition to the Mickey waffles that make my kids happy, I get to try some new foods.

    I also have to give special mention to the plated breakfast that's served at Cinderella's Royal Table. I really don't want anyone to tell me how many calories are in that meal (seriously, don't). The puffy French toast alone is worth the trip.

    Five sit down dinners -- that's hard; there are so many good ones.

    Food-wise, you're going to have the best experience at Disney's signature restaurants. These gourmet restaurants are all outstanding. My three favorites are Artist Point (my all time fave), California Grill, and Brown Derby.

    But you probably don't want all signature meals with kids in your group, so I'll give you five of my top ranking restaurants:

    - Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot. The food is cooked on the table, which is a big hit with the kids, and the food is good AND healthy.

    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. Yummy BBQ skillet, plus the servers make the place seem like you're part of the family.

    - Sci-Fi Dine-In. Frankly, the food is not always great, but the atmosphere is classic Disney.

    - Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion at Epcot. Where else are you going to see your kids belly dance.

    - The Wave. New in the Contemporary Hotel. Fresh food, fresh atmosphere.

    Happy eating!
