“Exceptional experience with the characters, decent food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had a great time at this restaurant. We went to an early dinner and the characters did a great job of spending time with our daughter. The food was decent as it was buffet style and the service was very attentive. All in all, I would recommend for a family with younger childern who are looking for a memorable character experience. Price was very reasonable...believe it is normally $30 for adult. For New Years Eve, it was around $50 per person.

“Excellent food, staff and service”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I know some people have said this was pricey but we had expected resort prices and had come prepared to pay for a hearty breakfast every morning to set us up for a day at the parks and the Garden Grill never disappointed.

“Horrible, would put -0- rating if possible”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

On this trip to Disney World, we decided to expand our experience with the restaurants on/off property.

To give credit, the manager did the right thing and comp’d our meal.

We had dinner reservations. Stayed on a Disney Property, wasn't aware there was a charge for parking, really?!?!?!? It should be complimentary if i have dinner reservations at one of your restaurant.

BBQ night. Lets say was totally disappointing. The food was lacking and dry and just looked really old, tasteless except for the SALT factor. And watching the employees go around stirring the food doesn’t help it much. Really it needs to be changed out if you have to stir the food to make it look edible.

Carving Station—where o where has the carver gone, o where o where can he be. Wait, where is the meat? No carver, no meat, I can’t believe the tiny piece of meat he was carving from.

Children station—the green peas were cooking so long that it turned grey.

Salad—you were served spinach salad when seated but other than that there were no salad or plain vegetable options, everything was mixed with some sauce.

We stayed 15 minutes, 10 of which were just waiting for our waiter to come by.

I guess the lack of people should’ve been the indication that this was a no go.

There were only 2 characters (Pluto and Goofy) available, but they came out one at a time, so I think it is the same person playing both characters. Lol.

“A Magical Place”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Our grandchildren loved the Character Dinner, and we loved the food. I've been to many character dinners at Disney, but never one this good. The characters were awesome, and we got some great pictures of them with the children.
