    I'm visiting Disney World with a couple friends over my 24th birthday. Where do you suggest we go for dinner either at Epcot or a resort without spending more than $25/person?


    If your heart is set on dinner under $25 at an Epcot restaurant, you'll find that most will have a few entrees in that range for dinner, but remember, tax, gratuity and a drink can quickly top that budget.  Nine Dragons' family dinners include a soup, entree and dessert for less than $25.  Tokyo Dining's sushi menu could help you meet your budget with a roll and a salad.  Rose & Crown has several "meat and potato" entrees that are under $20, and if you snag a dinner reservation around 7:30 or 8:00, you might be able to eat outside and get a view of Illuminations at 9 p.m.

    If you're flexible about dinner, I'd really encourage you to think about celebrating your birthday at lunch time.  Most regulars to the Moms Panel know that I am a big fan of Biergarten for groups.  It's one of the best bangs for your buck at Epcot with a full buffet and a floor show of authentic Oktoberfest entertainment.  As with most restaurants, the price is considerably cheaper at lunch ($19.99 presently vs. over $30 for dinner) and that INCLUDES your beverage!

    Another option to consider is Raglan Road at Downtown Disney.  Like Biergarten, their menu is moderately-priced and they have entertainment to boot in the evenings. They have their own website at:

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
