    Thanks for your advice regarding my ADR overbooking! :) Another question....I know we are eating at Coral Reef. Do you think that Cape May would generally be the same thing? I'm trying to get a wide variety in dining options.

    Hi again Kristy,

    I'm always happy to offer opinions on dining options at Walt Disney World!

    Despite the fact that both the Coral Reef and Cafe May Cafe highlight seafood, I think you will find that they are different experiences.

    Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club resort has a casual, beach-themed atmosphere. It is a buffet, and while there are lots of seafood items to choose from, you also have your pick of dishes such as barbequed ribs, carved roast pork, roast chicken and a variety of salads and side dishes.

    Coral Reef, as you know, offers views of The Seas with Nemo & Friends. The a la carte menu features upscale seafood entrees that change seasonally. It is slightly fancier.

    I don't think you will feel you have had the same meal twice if you eat at both.

    If you decide you want to change one, let me suggest a couple of options.

    My family's favorite table service spots at Epcot are Le Cellier in the Canada pavilion for steak; Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom pavilion for fish & chips, bangers and mash and shepherds pie; Tokyo Dining in the Japan pavilion for sushi; and Via Napoli in the Italy pavilion for wood-fired pizza.

    For resort hotel buffets, besides Cafe May Cafe, we are big fans of Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge. There's a great variety of food to choose from and, as a bonus, you can walk outside and see the animals on the savannah.

    It sounds as if you are going to have my kind of vacation -- filled with great food of all kinds. Please let me know if I can offer any other help. Enjoy!
