Me and the family (2 parents, myself (17) and little brother (12)) are probably going to hit WDW sometime in October and since I have a job now, I agreed that I would help pay for it if we went to a Full-service restauraunt while we were there. However, never having beed to any of those, I haven't the slightest idea as to which one is worth the cash. So, I turn over this question to the amazing UAB community. Does anyone have a personal favorite? I'm open to all of property, parks, Downtown and resorts. Thanks for the help!

My absolute faves are California Grill and Narcossee, but they are a bit pricey for a large group.
Other great restaurants:
-Mitsukoshi - Japan in Epcot
-Le Cellier - Canada in Epcot
-Coral Reef - The Living Seas - Epcot
-50's Prime Time Diner - Hollywood Studios
-Mama Melrose - Hollywood Studios
-Brown Derby - Hollywood Studios
-Tony's Town Square Restaurant - Magic Kingdom
-Cape May (awesome buffet) - Yach & Beach Club
-Yachtsman's Steakhouse
-Jiko - Animal Kingdom Lodge

I have eaten at just about every restaurant at WDW (love those castmember discounts). Is there any specific you are looking for? Let me know.

Jaho's list is pretty good. I also like Liberty Tree Tavern (I prefer dinner over lunch, but both are good). O'Hana's at the Poly is good too. Sci-Fi in MGM...sorry...DHS is also fun and good, but 50's Prime Time is my overall favorite.

Artist Point is fantastic! Again, a little on the pricey side for larger groups. Allears.net has the menus if you want to get an idea for prices and what options are on the menu.

Tokyo Dining - Japan at Epcot
Le Cellier - Canada at Epcot
Biergarten - Germany at Epcot
Jiko - Animal Kingdom Lodge
Paradiso 37 - Downtown Disney
Artist Point - Wilderness Lodge
Definitely check out the menus over at allears.net though. You can get ideas for current prices and menus. Some food items may not be as appealing for everyone in your party.

We always wind up at the Biergarten in Germany. I also really like the Prime Time Cafe at DHS. I guess my attitude is that I can have a nice dinner anywhere, so when I'm at Disney, I want a nice dinner with a fun, entertaining atmosphere.

I think Prime Time would be fun for a family or group. Sci-fi Diner would be OK. O'hana maybe too! My wife and I will be in the World in October and have 10 at O'hana one night. For a more romantic spot our fav is Bisto De Paris. We also like Artist Point. those list two are a little more costly. We also like hitting the bar next door to Artist Point (territory Lounge I think) for snacks.

I personally didn’t care for Prime Time when I went years ago. I love the atmosphere of Sci-Fi though. It’s like being in an episode of MST3K! Now that’s my idea of fun!

Alacrity: Territory Lounge is correct. When Matt & I stopped in for drinks a couple weeks ago, they had a nice looking cheese platter. Decent assortment for a bar menu as well. I also like Tambu Lounge’s bread selection, which is right next to ‘Ohana. We never make it past the Tambu Lounge… Very Happy

Thanks everybody! Even though that plan fell flat on its face, and another plan fell through the financial hole, I came back and used your recommendations.
My mom is a personal trainer and is training one of her clients in exchange for a few nights in her timeshare. She didn't have the money to pay my mom, and we didn't have the money for a vacation, so this worked out nicely. As a thank you and an anniversary gift to both my parents, they have a reservation at Narcoossee's while we're down there and a gift card from me and my friends that are tagging along. I wouldn't've had any idea where to start if I hadn't had these recommendations! Thanks again!

My favorite? That would probably be Jiko, since I've eaten there on every trip (four of them now, and a fifth coming up in November) and have always had a great meal. Although, I'm eating at California Grill for a second time on this upcoming trip, and I love it there, too. It's just expensive. Stay away from that one if you're paying!
