So where is everyones favorite place to stuff themselves until their silly at the parks? Or at the hotels? Where is somepalce you can get your fill?

For me I love the Crystal Palace but lately the food hasn't been as good so any suggestions for new buffets?

I don't think I have ever ate at one of Disney's buffets. I usually stick to counter service chicken fingers and hot dogs.

I sed to be the same way but I wanted to experience a character buffet. Characters aside, you can probably get alot more food for your money at a buffet. And the characters really dont bother you if you dont want them to. In fact, they pretty much ignore anyone over the age of 12 unless you really want them to come over. Other wise it's "Oh, hello Goofy. Bye goofy"

I'm not a big buffet fan in general. I don't get the "all you can eat for one price" mentality. I have never walked away from counter service or other table services hungry, and sometimes I spend less for better, warmer food than a fixed price buffet.

Having said that...Disney and Vegas tend to have decent buffets. For Disney I would give it to Boma as my favorite.

There are two main theories behind buffets, I think. First, it's good for picky eaters as they can get all they want of the foods they like. If they don't like veggies, then it's all meat. Second, some people (like my dad) believe it is a better value to eat a buffet as you could conceivably eat more than the food is worth.

The Vegas buffets are superb and cheap. The Disney buffets, although good, are overpriced.

I was at gulliver's grill on tuesday night which is at the swan and it was amazing! It was a bit more expensive for a buffet, 26.95 per person, but it was an italian buffet and it was just DELICIOUS! :-D They had a 'make your own' pasta station, and 2 other stations full of italian dishes. Supposedly the menu changes almost daily.

Also you can order off a menu here which you can not always do in a buffet. I was very impressed by that! :-D

I like the Cape May in BC. It's not as hectic as the other ones. If you like characters, they don't seem as rushed as the other character meals. The food is pretty good at both breakfast(Caracter breakfast) and dinner ("Clam Bake). We aren't seafood lovers at all but we still go there for dinner sometimes. They do have a lot of stuff for meat eaters. The CM's there are usually very nice and less stressed than a place like Chef Mickeys.

I've had a breakfast at Cape May (along with Jeanne) and I thought it was definetly quieter than the other's Ive been too. What exactly was served at the dinner clam bake? I'm not a sea food fan either

Based on that menu I'd opt for caesar salad, clam chowder and chicken or beef

We have tried several; I know it's not at a Park, but BOMA at AKL is good. Not cheap, but an amazing variety of decent spicy food. I am Veggie (DW is not) and get excellant food - always leave really full. However, it is not the 'buffet mentality' type of place - the food quality is excellant. For me, it exceeds Jiko for the quality of food (of course, Jiko is a completely differant type of experiance but when we ate there, the spicing was far too obvious - nothing subtle; but the wines in Jiko were to die for!!!)

Sorry - wandered off the buffet theme there for a while!

They also have a carving station and the kids buffet usually has pizza, chix nuggets, etc. Also the dessert bar is pretty good, they have those huge choc chip cookies.

I really liked Boma too. We haven't been there in a while so I forgot about it. We'll have to plan another trip there soon :D
