    What's the one or more dining places you must avoid?

    To piggy back with the other thread of places you can't miss what are some places you will never go back too and why?

    For me it would be Hollywood and Vine in HS... the food is ok but the last time we were there our whole party got food poisoning. Needless to say vomiting and stomach aches are not what you want on vacation.

    Sci-Fi diner. Bad food and bad service. You know what they say...Three strikes and you are out.

    I'm not a big fan of Cosmic Ray's. To me, it smells like old fryer grease. Needs an air freshener or something.

    I don't know if there are any places that you absolutely must avoid at all costs at disney, however I do have a few that I would ADVISE avoiding for some specific reasons.

    first off the electric umbrella in Epcot. theres nothing wrong with the restaurant persay, the food they produce is fine, but eating here only gives you the standard fair you could get anywhere else in the resort. hit the world showcase instead that is right around the corner and try some phenomenal stuff you normally wouldn't try.

    another thing I would avoid? rainforrest cafe and their subsidiaries, the chain is all over the place. instead at animal kingdom theres the yak and yeti and the AKL a little drive away there are some of the best most exciting restaurants in the resort.

    there are tons of mediocre places that serve the standard average food, its not to say they should be avoided at all costs but there are easily ways to get some different exciting food if your willing to simply avoid the hamburger and pizza for once.

    Only time ive gotten"bad" food at WDW, is when a major fast food chain was over in TL. There are a few I wouldn't go back to unless someone in my party really wanted to. There are none that I would "avoid".And I agree....Cosmic Rays has that burning grease smell....lol

    Victoria and Alberts. I'm sure the food is exquisite, but no way in 1,000 years that I could afford it!

    The food IS exquisite.

    But yes, it's expensive. My one time ever might end up being my only time ever.

    @redrhino54
    Are you referring to McDonalds?

    I would say out of all the meals I was disappointed with it would have to be the San Angel Inn at Epcot. The food was bland, cold, mediocre at best, and way overpriced. The only pro was the atmosphere, which was a little under par with the Blue Bayou.

    I do love McDonalds, but I definitely didn't want to eat it in the Magic Kingdom!

    I didn't hate it but I was not super thrilled with Tony's Town Square considering I waited 45 min to be seated.. Meatballs were awesome but the sauce was bland.

    Tangierine Cafe. First time I loved it, second time it was gross. And the CMs are among the least friendly in Epcot. I do love Marrakesh, so it's not a Moroccan thing, but will be steering clear of this counter service in the future.
