    We are torn between Teppan Edo, Kona Cafe, La Hacienda de San Angel and Coral Reef for dinner. We will have the free dining and staying 5/27-5/31, so it will be a short trip and traveling with DD4 and 2month old. Trying to plan ahead:)

    Hi Connie! There are so many great restaurants at Walt Disney World -- it can be hard to narrow down your choices! I've dined at all of the restaurants you mentioned, and while they're all good, my personal opinion is that Teppan Edo has the tastiest food. The portion sizes aren't huge, but the food is always delicious, and both kids and adults enjoy the entertaining table-side cooking of the hibachi chefs. 

    Your children would probably love dining at the Coral Reef while they watch the sharks and fish swim by in the giant aquariums. Some people love the food here, but my experiences have been hit or miss with it. I love the Kona Cafe for breakfast -- the coffee is much better than other Disney restaurants and the Tonga Toast can't be beat -- but for lunch and dinner I think there are better restaurants at Disney. I was excited to try the new La Hacienda de San Angel earlier this week. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the World Showcase lagoon and we enjoyed our meal, but I don't think it will be one of our must-do restaurants on every trip. 

    Of course, everyone has different opinions, and I'm sure many people would disagree with mine, but I hope my thoughts help you decide. Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
