I have to admit...initially, we decided to go to the Artist's Point out of desperation. My dad kindly had agreed to tag along on the family's Disney Vacation but it isn't ( to say it mildy) exactly his cup of tea. We were staying at the Wilderness Lodge and decided to go to the Artist's Point for dinner in the hopes that it would provide my dad with a slightly nicer dining experience than the typical theme park food.
It was a real relief and a hit both with my particular rug-rat and my dad. The food itself was a nice change for the adults and, as a mom, it was nice to see my four-year-old eat watermelon and salmon for dinner instead of french fries and chicken nuggets that are more common on trips out with little kids.
If I was at home, would I have expected the meal to be quite as expensive? No, probably not. This is a Disney Restaurant and that often implies a slightly more expensive meal than you'd get if you were dining outside the resort. This was a nice meal , though, and I would definately recommend it, particularly if you're staying at the Wilderness Lodge (or if it's easy for you to get to the hotel). If you're using the Disney Dining Plan, this is considered a fine dining experience---since I haven't been to the other fine dining restaurants, I can't say if it's comparable. But if you're just looking for a nice place to eat that's more than a cut above the normal restaurants, I would recommend it. It was a nice place to eat that managed to bring us all together, despite our normally different expectations for dining out.
