    Hi, I am planning a trip to wdw in April 2010. I'd like to chose one or two of the signature restaurants for dinner. I'll have my husband and 3 kids (14, 14 and 2). Any suggestions?

    Hi Christine,

    Congrats on your upcoming trip!  My hubby and I lived in Manhattan before having kids and loved to eat out.  I was initially a bit skeptical when we started trying out the signature dining establishments at Disney, thinking they couldn't possibly be on par with those in New York.  Not only was I wrong that they were equal, but we've had many meals at Disney that far exceeded our NY dining experiences.  Some of our absolute favorites include:

    • Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (this is my current absolute favorite.  The food is amazing and the wine list of South African wines is incredible!)
    • California Grille at the Contemporary (a well-timed meal here will afford you a prime view of Wishes a the Magic Kingdom)
    • Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge -I love the desserts here! 
    • Yachtsman Steak House at the Yacht Club - after an amazing steak dinner, we love to take a stroll along Disney's Boardwalk, where the restaurant is located and enjoy some great entertainment.  If you eat earlier in the evening, you can also walk over to Epcot to enjoy Illuminations.

    If you'd like a sneak peek at the menus at any of these or other signature restaurants, I'd recommend logging onto the independent website and select "dining" from the home page.  Have a wonderful evening out!
