    Well, Cape May is a buffet for openers. :D

    It has four sides (and a separate dessert section). Side one is the shellfish/fish side. Steamed clams, mussels, shrimp and a fish of the day. There will be new potatoes and corn there too. New England clam chowder is there, plus another soup (sometimes Walt's favorite chili). Side two has carved roast beef, breads, butters, and sometimes other hot carved meat. The corner is for children but do check it out! :D It often has the nicest fried shrimp or chicken tenders. :yes:

    Side three is a selection of many things: delicious roasted chicken, excellent ribs (not too sweet, so I'll eat them) sausages and peppers, a pasta dish, a couple of veggie dishes, and mash (and some other choices here and there). Side four is the cold section, salad makings and the like. :yes:

    You know I love it for the clams and mussels, but it's a great place to take a group of folks who have a wide variety of preferences as it has something for everyone. :yes:

    It's truly one of our basic Disney must do at least once places. :D

    Sounds good, sounds good. :yes: We aren't much on 'Ohana :sorry: but it's a great popular place!

    Cape May definitely appeals to those who love shellfish, but if you aren't one of them, there truly is much more from which to choose. :yes: On the other hand, if you don't want any shellfish at all, there are other buffets and places to dine, eh? :yes: :D

    Have you thought about Tusker house for lunch? Or Yak and Yeti? Presuming you are going to the AK, of course. :yes:

    You ARE going to visit AK, riiiiiiiiight? :unsure: :eek:

    Oh goodness, we LOVE 'Ohana! It is one of our favorite places.

    We went to the Cape May dinner buffet with Tinker and her family a few years ago. It was quite good :yes: We've been to the breakfast as well. It is a hidden gem.

    MUST do places?

    Hmmmm, probably only Beaches and Cream is a "seriously can't be a holiday without visiting this place" dining option.
    1900 Park Fare for dinner would run a close second. Then Prime Time.

    On the list of must try places next year are that Japanese place in Epcot and....that's it. :lol:

    I'd love to try some of the finer dining places but Adrian is a fussy eater who won't ask for anything that isn't on the menu. Still can't believe I got him into the Brown Derby.

    Totally misread the title of this thread. I read it and thought of course you must Keith, otherwise you'll get very very hungry.

    He has 2 nights off each week Keith. Normally it is Wed/Thurs although this does vary.
    You could always make an ADR through the "back door" though. :wink:

    Okay new to all of this so if I am re-asking please forgive. Are any of these restaurants Italian? Do you know of any in any area that are good? Where are the Ohana, Bomo, LeCellier located? I am going for my 50th in June and I want it to be extra special! Thanks for your help!

    Mama Melrose's is Italian.

    Ohana is located at the Polynesian Resort onsite, Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and Le Cellier is located in Canada in the EPCOT World Showcase :D

    In my opinion, you can't go wrong with any of them!

    do you need to make reservations for the places mentioned or can we just do it from our room phone?

    Reservations at WDW go by the "name" of ADRs. You should try to make them in advance (90 days) as much as possible, unless you don't have a specific desire to dine at a given place. Disney tends to be difficult to get an ADR with as so many folks are trying to do the same thing.

    Off site restaurants such as Charleys, Morton's Ruth's Chris, The Melting Pot, all are highly recommended to have a reservation. Don't call from your room phone though, as I believe they charge you by the body part.

    I know Morton's has an online reservation system, but I don't know about the others.

    There are pay phones at DTD that would probably work better for you (cost wise). :yes:

    Or, you could ask your Hotel Concierge for their assistance. :yes:
