    I am looking for a suggestion for my final reservation. We have the dining plan, and have booked, coral reef, Mam Melrose, Character dining at crystal palace, chef mickey, Boma's and Ohana's. What would restaurant would you suggest on the dining plan?

    Hi Shelley,

    Great dining choices! Those are some of our favorites and we will be dining at a number of them next week during our upcoming trip. Dining choices are hard things to recommend as it has so much to do with your family's tastes, however, I have listed a few locations below that we love. I have recommended these locations many times and have yet to have a friend return disappointed, so hopefully they will quickly become a family favorite for you.
    • Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The menu has a number of familiar American favorites with a nice African touch. The wine choices are numerous and the filet and macaroni and cheese are unbelievable.
    • LeCellier at Epcot. This Canadian steakhouse has a charming wine cellar fell to it. The cheese soup is rich and delicious, the pretzel bread is warm and tasty and the filets are mouth-watering. They offer a number of fun and delicious desserts, with my favorite the S'mores.
    • Teppan Edo at Epcot. Located in Japan, the meals offer your selection of meat or seafood as well as noodles and vegetables all prepared at a table side grill by a wonderful chef. The food is delicious, but we love the "show" the chefs put on while preparing the meal. Great fun for the whole family!
    • California Grill at the Contemporary Resort. This beautiful restaraunt offers breath-taking views of the Magic Kingdom while you dine on unique dishes of seafood, sushi, pasta and beef to name a few choices.
    • Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge. The house speciality here is the endless skillet with ribs, chicken, potatoes and vegetables but for us, it is all about the atmosphere. Located just off the towering lobby of the Lodge, the view is warm and inviting and there is a great family feel. Just make sure you ask for the ketchup.

    There are so many other fantastic choices at Disney World, but these are some of our favorites. Hope you enjoy!
