I'd say the Blue Bayou for the atmosphere, and either the Vineyard Room in DCA or Hook's Pointe in the DL Hotel for food. Haven't been to Napa Rose yet, but from what I hear it blows all the others away!
I enjoy the nice, relaxing, area of the outside food court for Pizza Port. It's outside so it's not stuffy, but the location is fairly quiet--not to mention the pasta is delicious! I enjoy it every time!
Since you said the resort - favorite restaurant hands dowqn is the ESPN Zone in DTD, followed up by the Rainforest Cafe. Like the offerings at LaBrea bakery too. Not overly impressed with many of the meal-time food choices available in-parks. At least now you have much better food at comparable price a few steps away.
The basil (? I think that is what it is!) pasta is unbeatable at Pizza Port.
Everything at Blue Bayou is awesome.
Breakfast at Carnation is always a must.
Usually Tomorrowland burgers are a definite, unless we are closer to
Taste Pilots at DCA.
It really depends on what your taste is. I avoid Mexican food since
I have it all the time at home - although I've heard it is really
good at Rancho Zoc... I always have to do a churro because
DL is the only place to get a decent one... and I try to do things I
normally wouldn't do at home, like pig out on carmel apples from
Marcelines! But I do steer clear of the McDonalds at DCA... not only
over priced, but I eat it all the time on campus at home - and don't do Rainforest because I'm close to one in AZ. I just
try to do different things and things that make DL special to me, as
mentioned specifically in the four things above.
I wish the chineese food place was open more often at DCA...
although I have it quite often at home myself, I've always wanted
to have it at DCA too!
Pizza Port - The Chicken Fussilli is EXCELLENT. Hungry Bear - While the food is good, the atmosphere, way at the back, during Fantasmic is so much fun (NO, you cannot watch the show there, but you can watch the backstage stuff.) Corn dogs from the Red Cart, and a brownie from Blue Ribbon Bakery!!!!
If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
I love the Blue Bayou for its atmosphere and of course the delicious Monte Cristo. YUMMY! I also love the Hungry Bear. The food is good but its the location that gets me. I haven't really got any food from DCA except Taste Pilots Grill.
