    Can I please get some recommendations on the best places to eat? If I wanted to do 1 character dining which one is the best?

    Hi Steven,

    There are dozens of wonderful places to eat at Walt Disney World. I'm going to point you over to an independent website called There's a tab at the top of the home page that says "Best Disney World Restaurants." There are links here to lists of best restaurants based on needs and food preferences. Since I don't know what you like to eat (are you a meat & potatoes guy? do you like seafood?, etc.), I'm going to tell you some of my personal preferences.

    Best overall: Victoria & Albert's in the Grand Floridian. One of the premiere restaurants in the US.

    Best signature meal: Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge. The perfect blend of cozy and elegant.

    Best in-park table service meal: La Hacienda de San Angel. Yummy Mexican eats.

    Best in-park quick service meal: Flame Tree at the Animal Kingdom.

    Best snack: Dole Whip!

    Best non-character themeing: Sci-Fi Dine-In at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    As for character meals, again, "best" is subjective. If you have a five-year-old girl, then there is no place better than Cinderella's Royal Table in the castle, but an older boy might be happier at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom. However, overall I'd have to say that the classic character meal experience is Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary resort.

    I'm happy to provide more details about any of these dining experiences. Let me know if you need additional information.
