    Has anyone ever eaten at the Grand Floridian Cafe? We've booked it for lunch on Christmas day with the thought being, the parks may be too crowded for our liking, and I find the GF lovely during the holidays. We thought we might do a bit of a "holiday monorail tour" and then have lunch at the GF.

    Thoughts?

    Hey that is another great idea. The GF is so beautiful that time of year. Lots of fond memories of sitting in the grand lobby listening to the piano play christmas songs...oh that will be so cool.

    But to your question...don't think we had eaten there that is. We ate several times at 1900 Park Fare. I have nothing but good things to say about that.

    We have eaten at the GF Cafe oodles of times, although mainly for breakfast when we are staying at the resort.
    We have had dinner there on a couple of occasions though, and although the menu is not as comprehensive as at the signature dining places, nevertheless there is a wide variety of choices and we can`t complain about the service.
    Getting a window seat will give you a good view of the gardens which look quite pretty after dark with all the lights etc.

    Just to add....we ate there this year. We loved it, and actually thought it was one of the loveliest meals we had in our 16 days of deluxe dining :thumbsup: The food and the service was fab, and we thought the dining room was so sweet :yes: The dessert sampler is a must.

    Izzy has moved to Artist Pont John, he`s been there for a couple of years or so by now.
    He moved along with another server...Xavier....who used to work at the Cafe.
