    If you had to pay for one, which would you choose? Rainforest Cafe, Marrakesh, tusker house lunch, mama melrose fantasmic dinner, Chef Mickey's, Ohana's breakfast, TRex, Coral Reef, Garden Grill, 50's PT, Crystal Palace lunch,Tony's TS? Thanks

    Debra, you seem to be planning my kind of vacation- a trip that involves serious eating!

    The one meal I would choose to experience out of your splendid list of restaurants would be Chef Mickey's breakfast. The Fab Five, a bountiful buffet, the festive atmosphere, and the unique experience of eating while the monorail glides above your head make this spot my family's favorite character meal. Who doesn't love Mickey waffles with Mickey?

    Since you mention paying for the meal, I wonder if you referring to which dining spot would be the best economical choice to pay for out of pocket rather than using entitlements from the Disney Dining Plan. If your goal is to make the most of your DDP, choose a restaurant where you can order off the menu rather than a buffet for when you will not be using dining credits. Picking lower cost options, skipping dessert and appetizers, and drinking water instead of soda will reduce the price of your meal. Consider the Rainforest Cafe which offers burger options or Tony's Town Square for pasta since these entrees are on the less expensive side.

    Enjoy your delicious meals!
