    Hey! My family is going to be at WDW in September and I am planning out our dining for the week. My question is: if you had to pick between Chef Mickey (which we have done) or The Garden Grove (which we have never done) which would you choose? Thanks :)

    Hi, Charles!  I love the Garden Grill at the Land Pavilion at EPCOT, and I think the character interaction there is wonderful!  I really enjoy the meal - which is an all you can eat meal served family style - and I think it's kind of cool that the restaurant rotates as you dine.

    Having said that, I think if I had to choose only one, and had never done either, I would definitely choose Chef Mickey's.  My kids think it's a lot more fun there, and they love the party atmosphere.  They like the meal at the Garden Grill, but they love going to the buffet and having more of a say in what they eat. 

    You can't really go wrong with either meal, so if you have never done the Garden Grill and you have done Chef Mickey's, it's certainly worth it to try the Garden Grill.  My kids just think Chef Mickey's is more fun.

    Have a great time!
