    Hi,

    We quite like Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom, it is buffet style and the food is quite yummy!!

    It is character dining experience (Winnie pooh etc)

    We had dinner at Tony`s along with catrancher and his DW last year when we went to MNNSSHP.
    The meal was fine, however our server did seem to be rushing us a bit, nevertheless it wouldn`t put me off from going there again some time.

    In the MK itself there are only three restaurants that I consider TS. Crystal Palace, although technically a TS is a buffet and therefore I don't consider it a TS. One of the three is The Plaza Restaurant, which, technically a TS is mostly sandwiches. The other two are Tony's and Cinderella's. If you are going to be in the MK and are looking for decent TS I would leave the park and go to either California Grill at the CR or Citrico's or Narcoossee's at the GF.

    I have only really tried Crystal Palace, but I think it was really good. :D I love the feel of that restaurant, open and airy.

    I didn't have a problem with Tony's. I'm going back there next month.

    We were one of the last tables of the evening and our waiter was very accomodating. He even gave me a to-go cup of coffee!

    I had a weird experience with the Plaza so, I'm not sure if I would ever go back there. Since it was mostly sandwiches anyway, I'm quite fine with grabbing one of those at a quick-serve.

    Hmmm we don't really eat ts at MK unless it's at Liberty Tree. I've only been to Tony's for a grand gathering breakfast. CRT is fine but not worth the money IMO. Always good to do at least once. I have always enjoyed Crystal Palace. I do love the Pooh characters and the buffet is one of the better ones.

    I have eaten at Tonys, Crystal Palace,Liberty Tree, and CRT and in my opinion none of them are great(none of them are horrible either). I agree with John, you would be better off leaving MK and taking the monorail to Contemporary or Polynesian and having dinner at Ohanas or California Grill.

    I have to say this, California Grill is not worth the effort to get there. :sorry: We had a meal that was so poor there that we'll not be returning any time soon. Talk about Blue Light Special. We felt that we were in the middle of K-Mart when the light went off. :(

    I'd rather dine at Tony's than deal with that nonsense again.
