What Restaurant Have You Been To The Most?

Which restaurant have you visited the most times? Is it also your favorite? My favorite tends to change, so even though I think I've been to Boma the most, I'm not sure it's still my favorite. How about you guys?

I've probably been to Rainforest Cafe the most - when I was an ICP Castmember there we all loved that one, so it was a good choice because it was an all-round favourite and pleased anyone of us who were going Smile I don't know if I'd say it was my favourite, but I do love it and I'm looking forward to trying the T-rex cafe when I go back! We probably shouldn't have all still been so into Rainforest Cafe at our age, but whatever biggrin

I will say that my most frequented restaurant in the World is the Turf Club Bar & Grill at SSR. We usually go at least 2 or 3 times during every visit to WDW.

Oh I meant to comment on this but forgot...I have never been to Boma but since someone suggested it as a good place for vegetarians in Disney I reckon I might try it! So it's a buffet - is it all you can eat?? My appetite is only quite big for a small girl, so not that big really, but my boyfriend has ridiculous metabolism and is an eating machine so if it's all you can eat I reckon I could persuade him to splash out on this place!
Also, I'm dying to get a peek at the Animal Kingdom Lodge! I hope you can go watch the animals even if you aren't staying there yay

Boma is all you can eat and you can watch the animals from an observation deck. Did someone send you to the Animal Kingdom Lodge Fan Site? They've got lots of pictures of what to expect!

Probably the 50s Prime Time Cafe - I have gone every trip but one!

I don't think they did, but I will look in a bit, cheers for the heads up! Boma sounds great

Rose & Crown every time since 2004..so I think that's about ten times. We just ADORE Rose and Crown.

San Angel Inn! Don't care what people say...I like it! Though DF LOVED Le Cellier this trip so I think we may be frequenting that from now on as well.

Pegosaurus - The AKL Fan Site is http://www.aklresort.com/

For me our most frequented restaurant has to be Liberty Tree Tavern. It's about the only thing we do EVERY trip.

Yum, I've always heard such great things about Trail's End! I have a good friend who grew up camping at FW and she always goes to Trail's End on every trip. We've never been. S

Thanks! I just had a look and I'm still a little unsure - is there an area at AKL where anyone can go view the animals at any time of day for free?

Yes there are, if you go out the back of the lobby at AKL you will go a short ways and there are locations with views of the Savanas with places to see the animals, also if you wander down the corridors of the Lodge the are viewing areas that are accessible to see the animals. Also don't forget that if you go in the evening when it is dark, behind the main pool there is a viewing location that is staffed with CMs with night viewing binoculars that they will let you use to see the animals roaming around which you CAN NOT see with the naked eye. I have done it and it is fascinating, how long they let you use the night viewing goggles depends on how many people are waiting in line to use them.

Hi!

Listening to Trans Siberian Orchestra as I type this, at approximately 82 characters a minute.

I think I've been to Boma on every trip, my last one in 2007 being for dinner. The others were for breakfast. It's all buffet; but if you go for breakfast, try their juice drink called Frunch. It's very similar to the POG served at Kona.

That used to be our #1 restaurant, but after they got rid of the fried cheese, it really never recovered for us. Did you ever have it before they took it off the menu? It wasn't like regular fried cheese.

What was it like?? I love cheese..especially when it's fried!

I am not a fried cheese person..so that didn't really appeal to me

I can speak to the cheese cdub is referencing. It was fried Boursin cheese. It was delicious and it made me sad when it left us. Instead of dipping it in stuff you put it on bread. Loved it! We order 2 of them as appetizers once (or maybe more than that)

Oh yum..that makes me sad..I wish I could have tried that!

That's the one. And its loss was tragic. I also tend to prefer Liberty Tree Tavern's pot roast, so my reasons for going to 50's Prime Time keep dwindling. They do have good fried chicken though.

Oh, I LOVED that fried cheese. It was different than anything I'd ever had before and seems like it would be pretty easy to make, actually.

Our favorite restaurant -- or the one that we go to the most -- would have to be 'Ohana. We usually go every trip for dinner. I haven't ever been for breakfast!

Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort is by far the best restaurant on property, i think! It's definitely a good experience and I have never had anything bad there!

Kona has been rising on my favorites list. I'm anxious to ever get back and see if I like it as much as last time.

Fried + Boursin. I'm sorry...did mortals rob this treasure from the heavens? And how can I go about making a copycat version? Hmmmm...

It's been a while since I had a "real" meal at WDW - we usually go for quick service. But the Brown Derby for Cobb Salads and Grapefruit Cake has sort of become a tradition for Mom, me, and my little girl. We included my grandmother in this little ritual too before she passed away this past spring. We called it "Ladies Who Lunch." Hold on...lemme see if I can dig up a pic...(excuse my massiveness...I've trimmed down a bit since then Smile I only hate that they're not decorating for Christmas anymore...or maybe they've started again? Because their decorations were really gorgeous.

Anyway, I always feel like I might spy Lucille Ball and William Holden in the next booth Smile

Do I get in trouble if I admit I've never had the grapefruit cake?

Let's see. We've gone to WDW 3 times in the last 18 months.

During those 3 trips, we've gone to California Grill dinner 2x, Boma dinner 2x, Yak & Yeti lunch 2x, Hollywood Brown Derby lunch 2x, Liberty Tree Tavern lunch 2x, Le Cellier dinner 2x, San Angel Inn dinner 2x, Teppan Edo lunch 2x, Kona Cafe 3x (2 breakfast, 1 lunch), and Ohana dinner 2x. And on our most recent trip, we went to Via Napoli for lunch twice. it was THAT good.

Everywhere else has been just 1 visit, and at this point I'd say we've been to 60% of the table service locations at WDW.

My "perfect day" of meals would be Kona Cafe for breakfast, Via Napoli for lunch, and California Grill for dinner.

Impressive, SWG!

Not in trouble per se, but I personally think you're missing out. I think it's delicious...but then, I love grapefruit, and I love cake! Hmmm...I have the recipe and it's citrus season...I think it's time for grapefruit cupcakes Smile
