Best and worst theme park food.

^Yes because Disney has no alter motives of pushing you to a less popular restaurant. ;)

That said Im sure familiarity is a huge factor, and a reason why Le Celier, joins the Italian Restaurant (which isn't just not good, its horrible) and the Mexican Restaurant as the more popular options.

What? I thought the Italian place was vastly superior to the old Alfredo's. Dinner, dessert and the wine were all amazing, as was the service. And it had a lot of good northern fare too, not just the same old spaghetti and meatballs crap.

I havent been there since the change over. Glad it changed.

Also, I find it a whole lot easier to find good (and usually cheaper) Italian food back home. Ill take a steak dinner as my "standard fare" night over Italian food.

Are tourists that boring that they make a run for the most familiar stuff around the lagoon?

I think one look at the constant line for the Golden Arches counter service will certainly answer that question.

I ate at the Italy pavilion in sept, and it was by far the worst food I have ever had at epcot.

I will take canada, japan, france, germany, and mexico over Italy any day. It's a bummer, because I really like Italian food. I have had better Italian food at olive garden.

If I remember right, the Mcdonalds in the park only sells fries. I can see if you have kids and they need a snack. the fries fit that void very well. Other than that, I wouldent be found at a MC cart.


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

Meanwhile, a place like Marrakesh is easy to get into, and has probably some of the most underrated food there (although the service is consistently poor).

That could be why it's easy to get into.

While I agree that Marrakesh is a bit different then what most travelers are used to. Le Cellier is the smallest of the Epcot restaurants, has a great reputation and is a 1 table service meal on the dining plan. That is why it is the hardest to get in.

While we were there in March, we also ate at Biergarten, Chefs De France, Coral Reef, Teppan Edo, Tutto Italia, Ohana & Whispering Canyon Cafe.

On our next trip we are doing Boma, Biergarten, Crystal Palace, 50s Prime Time, & Le Cellier.

50's prime time is great. You will have a good time there.

50s Prime Time is definatly the best choice at MGM (assuming you dont want to burn 2 credits at the Brown Derby.)

Also, the Crystal Palace is at its best for breakfast. Pooh and friends are there, but the real attraction is their cinnamon french toast (so bad but sooo good.)

Oh wow.. Yeah 50s is the place to be. Though unfortunately their antics are more seasonal than it used to be. One of my closest friends works there (one of the few full timers), and its always part of our stop.

Food is just like mom used to make :)

We have a 8:05 am ADR for Crystal Palace. This way we can get in and photograph the castle without anyone around.

Ken, I am hoping for some antics since it will be my birthday when we are going. Sept 27th

Dave, just keep your elbows off the table. Or wait, maybe you should keep them on the table. And wear that hat you're wearing in your avatar pic.

I was just glancing over Le Cellier's menu and it does look like tasty steakhouse/comfort food but there's nothing really Canadian about it aside from the Poutine offering. We drink quite a bit of Canadian wine up here so was scanning the wine list. I only recognized the Mission Hill and the mark up was only about 2x which is a steal. Most steakhouses will mark up a bottle 3x cost, and in some cases 4 and 5x.
