Booked 180 days in advance. Arrived 15 minutes early. Seated over an hour after our reservation time. We were told we would be charged $10 a person if we left for breaking our reservation even if they were at fault. Charged automatic gratuity even though 2 were infants. We lost our fast pass to soarin bc they were late. They... More

This restaurant was a great disappointment ! For about 2 years we kept saying we are going to try it . What a mistake. Not only was it way overpriced , the menu was set meaning you had no choice on what you ate. They advertise that it rotates you don't even realize it. Your only paying for the characters.... More

The spinning restaurant and the view into the ride were both great aspects. My daughter loved the characters that came around during the meal and the interaction was great. It was not just a quick picture opportunity; Chip danced with my daughter and Mickey even sat at our table for a minute! The food was good. I am fairly picky... More

This is the best meal I’ve ever had in Disney World. I love everything about this place, from the food to the characters. I can't wait to go to Garden again in the future. The banquet started off great. The waiter brought out a basket of soft rolls with maple butter and a large bowl of salad. Both were a... More

I am shocked that Disney has not taken care of the dripping A/C vents at this restaurant. We took my brother and sister-in-law and expectations were high as it was our only character meal. The dripping water from the A/C vents absolutely ruined the experience for us. Our visit was in October of 2012. Seriously, this is a grotesque situation... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since 1999 on every visit since. There was a change to the menu and there went the very good tasting, quality food. You're mostly paying for the characters but the food used to be excellent 3 years ago. You get turkey w/stuffing, fish with veggies & steak in sauce. The turkey was dry... More

This was our first time at Garden Grill. We had read great reviews but were a little nervous about the menu. It was delicious! When you arrive a salad and bread are immediately brought out for the entire table's enjoyment. Then the adults are served a platter of Turkey with Stuffing, Fish of the day, and filet of beef with... More

We've enjoyed the family style meals at other Disney restaurants, so we reserved a table at Garden Grill. On the day we went, we were the first table seated for the day, so they allowed us a few minutes with all of the Disney characters (Mickey, Chip, Dale and Pluto ) at the same time? We all thought the food... More

I walked in without a reservation and was seated within 10 minutes. The price is the same as most Disney buffets, $37.99/pp for adults. Unlike a few of the other reviews, I did not experience the dripping air-conditioner condensation. Maybe being in the inside-ring of seats helped. What I did experience was delicious warm rolls, with a side of honey-infused... More

This restaurant was not my choice but a family members as it was the only character dinner available at the time. Well I did read the reviews so I knew what to expect. The food was acceptable, yes the turkey and meat were salty but no more than other restaurant food, especially at Disney. I haven't touched tilapia since I... More
