    I'am getting conflicting answers about Disney world's "Family Style" dining options. Some, like the Garden Grill, you can get all you want. Other's, like Crystal Palace only let you choose the item you want to eat. Please help.

    Hi Karen! Sounds like you have a hungry bunch coming to Walt Disney World!

    In Disney lingo, family style typically means all-you-care-to-eat, but there are some variations on the definition. At the Crystal Palace, family style translates more to prix fixe as only the starters and desserts keep coming; entrees are one per guest. The cost for this restaurant is lower than Chef Mickey's or 'Ohana where all options are as much as you desire.

    Currently restaurant reservations may be booked 60 days in advance, so mark your calendar to snag your seats. A sit down meal in air conditioning is perfect for reviving your party during a full-on park day. At any table service spot, a server will bring you as much ice tea as you can handle!

    Wishing you a wonderful adventure full of delicious meals!
