We're planning a trip for next January with our (then) 8 and 5 year olds. We went last year and loved be our guest, cinderella's royal table, hollywood and vine, and the japanese place at epcot. We're going for a week this time and I just wanted some additional recommendations. We'll have the dining plan so table or quick service doesn't matter, nor does the time of day.

In my (admittedly limited) experience, any of the ethnic restaurants in Epcot are absolutely fantastic. I really don't know if the dining plan includes these or not.

Magic Kingdom dining is so so.

Lived in Orlando for two years and we went there to eat a fair amount.

MK: I wouldn't recommend anything else since you've been to the main two.
Epcot: I would definitely recommend Biergarten at Germany for the experience but only for lunch when it's cheaper. Menu is pretty much the same for both. The Garden Grill at the Land is cool when it rotates because you can see into the Living with the Land ride but it was almost never rotating whenever we were there. If your kids are into character experiences though, you definitely get it here, it's almost too much actually of them constantly coming to your table.
AK: Tiffins/Tusker House/Yak & Yeti are where we've been but only Tiffins bar area. None of them are cheap but the food is good. We mostly went to the bar areas for drinks and ate at the new food court area in the Africa part whenever we were there.
Hollywood Studios: I'm a really big fan of Sci-Fi Dine-In and recommend to everyone going to Disney World if they can get reservations because it's pretty good burgers and it's reasonably priced for a Disney restaurant. The experience is really cool for kids and adults in my opinion. I think it's an even better deal with the dining plan from what I understand. I'd also recommend 50's Prime Time for the experience even if it is a bit pricier. It's all set in a retro house (the bar is the living room) and you're eating at the kitchen table.

Definitely look into some of the hotels - heard good things about Boma and Ohana but haven't been to either myself. If you want to ball out, California Grill is really good food, especially their brunch, plus they let you come back for fireworks at night if you have a receipt that day. We mostly went to all the hotel bars next to the restaurants because we didn't have to fight for reservations and the menu is usually the same.

Great information, thanks for responding. Yeah I forgot to mention Tusker House as one we'd been to, and probably will do again. I'm hoping the Toy Story table service restaurant will be open by then but I'm not optimistic since they haven't even started construction.

My favorite is the lamb couscous dish from Epcot Morocco, but I grew up eating that stuff. Not sure how a newbie would take to it. It doesn't seem nearly as popular as the other places, so we always do walk-in and never had to wait.

I really like the bread soup and beef bourguignon from Epcot France. Grab the ham and cheese baguette sandwiches for a quick, tasty lunch. *crunch*

I reeeally like the pork belly bao bun appetizers from Epcot China. I asked them if I could just order that to go and got a "no."

------------------

Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom) was my worst. What a disappointment. Your "buffet" consists of two mains and a handful of sides. The characters that came through were old-school Disney your kids wouldn't care for.

I have no recommendations in MK other than the chocolate covered frozen bananas
