    Which one is the best restaurant?

    Tough question! The answer depends on what you mean by "best." Are you looking for the most classic Disney experience? The most gourmet meal? If you asked each mom on the panel, you'd get 12 different answers. So, I'm going to give you a run down on what some of the best restaurants are.

    - Victoria & Alberts at the Grand Floridian. The fanciest, most award-winning restaurant at WDW. Coat and tie required. Children under age 10 not allowed. The site of many marriage proposals and big business deals. Intimate room with live harp music, impeccable service, beyond delicious food. The best of the best.

    - Other signature dining experiences. Upscale meals with more down-to-earth pricing. My favorite is Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge. I find the decor to be the perfect balance of elegance and simplicity. My last meal request would be the Artist Point cedar plank salmon and the cheese tasting plate. Others have similar passion for Jiko (unique African dishes), California Grill (with a view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks), the Brown Derby (LOVE that grapefruit cake), Flying Fish (mmmm) and each of the other signature meals.

    - Character dining. The classic meal is Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary; the best way to see the fab five Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto) all in one place. But for many folks, no trip to WDW would be complete without a trip to Cinderella's Royal Table in the Castle in the Magic Kingdom. There is nothing that makes a girl feel more like a real princess than dining in the castle.

    - Unique Disney fun. There are several non-character restaurants at WDW that have wonderful themeing or INCREDIBLE servers that make the experience like no other. These include the Whispering Canyon Cafe, Sci-Fi Dine-In, and the 50s Prime Time Cafe. There are legions of devoted fans of these restaurants.

    I hope this has helped you decide which restaurant is "best" for you.
