    Hi! Help pick what dining 2 keep.Please - Need 5: 8/17 CP, 8/18 TH, 8/19 Garden G, 8/20 CRT - B, CM- D, 8/21 Norway & CMC-D. Also please suggest best usage with counter service. Can't seem to make decisons this time. Staying @ WL w/ PH. Thank U so M


    Thanks so much for your question! I love this kind of decision! So you want to keep 5 meals out of the following;

    • Crystal Palace
    • Tusker House
    • Garden Grill
    • Cinderella's Royal Table
    • Chef Mickey's
    • Akershus
    • Cape May Cafe

    If you have to drop 2, I would say to let go of Cape May Cafe and either Crystal Palace or Tusker House. I really like all three, but here is why;

    Cape May Cafe is great, but other venues are more memorable. Crystal Palace is a great venue, but the food is nothing memorable. As for Tusker House, I love the venue and the food, but unless you are there for breakfast, there are two great park counter service choices that are FANTASTIC (Flame Tree BBQ and Yak & Yeti counter). But if it were me, I would keep Tusker House of the three.

    As for other counter service suggestions, here they are for the other three parks;

    • Magic Kingdom: Pecos Bill's
    • Epcot: Tangierine Cafe, Sunshine Season Food Fair
    • Hollywood Studios: Sunset Ranch Market

    Of these, I think Tangierine is really fantastic, and the others are simply the best choices in the parks.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
