    HI We are going in nov for our 25th annv and We are having a hard time knowing where and when to eat can you help us with some of your faviortes ? I know I want to eat at some of the character dinning by not all :) thank you Belinda

    There are so many wonderful locations at Disney World, it is hard to choose. Here are some of our absolute favorites:
    LeCellier at Canada in Epcot with chicken, pasta and incredible filets. Be sure to try the creme brulee.

    Coral Reef at Epcot offers amazing views of the aquarium and the menu offers fresh seafood, chicken and steak. The Lobster Bisque and Chocolate Wave dessert are two of our "must haves".  
    • Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge features familiar food choices with African flair. There is a huge of wine options and the filet with mac-n-cheese is mouth-watering.
    • Liberty Tree Tavern at Magic Kingdom is reminiscent of a colonial New England restaraunt. The menu offers pot roast, turkey, stuffing, mac-n-cheese  and more. Of course dessert features warm cobbler and ice cream.
    • Hollywood Brown Derby at Hollywood Studios has old Hollywood feel and here you can find the world famous Cobb Salad as well as the delicious Grapefruit cake. Menu options include steak, chicken and seafood.
    • Teppan Edo at Epcot's Japan pavilion is a fun and entertaining dining location. The chefs prepare your meal tableside. The scallops are incredible!As for character meals, most offer similar buffet style choices with carved meats, vegetables, salads and desserts, so we often base our choice on the characters. Our favorites include:
    • Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort. This open space inside the resort offers a great view of the monorail and a fun visit with Mickey and his pals.
    • Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom is a gorgeous glass building, where you can dine along with Pooh and his friends.A great place to check for the menus is under the dining option. Many of these locations are very popular, so I recommend calling 407-939-3463 ninety days in advance to make your seating times. Happy dining!
