My dad won 2 tickets for a free mid priced meal at like a crap load of WDW restaurants. Seriously... theres a lot on the list. I've ruled out the Food Courts, and Theme Park Restaurants. That still leaves a lot. Take a look at the back of the ticket and help us decide where to eat! NOTE: The tickets are blocked out now until like the middle to end of next month, so we have some time to decide.

Here are my suggestions from that list:

Boma
Spoodles
'Ohana
Whispering Canyon Cafe
50's Prime Time Cafe
Garden Grill
Rose & Crown

I'd go with Kona Cafe or Boma. If you want characters then 1900 Park Fare.

It's gonna be my dad ( 53 ), and myself ( 18 ), so characters aren't really a priority. Boma is one of the first ones I considered. I'm really wanting to go to a resort restaurant instead of a park restaurant, as I've never really spent anytime at the resorts.

Boma or Ohana will yield the most food. Also I like Kona and Spoodles.

2. Boma
3. Ohana

What a nice perk! While there are several theme park restaurants I like on the list (Rose & Crown Pub, 50' Prime Time, etc.), of the ones listed, I would suggest Boma because it offers an interesting & unusual menu and the AK Lodge is amazing to walk through! I've never been there, but I understand 'Ohana is also very good. Make sure you let us know where you decide to dine & how you liked it!!!!!

1. Biergarten
Because Biergarten is relatively inexpensive, I would not use a voucher for that one. Just my opinion :D

Matt, I agree. It's for a free mid priced meal, yet you can actually use it at a counter service place... Kinda like the people wasting dining credits.... I rarely get the chance to eat anywhere other than counter service at the parks, so I'm wanting to go to the most expensive place on the list, lol. Well the most expensive with the best food.

Debbie, I'm totally going to do a restaurant review, complete with pictures, for my Blog. I'll be sure to link it here afterwards.

So far Boma and Whispering Canyon are tied in the lead.... Ohana is a close second... everything else is undecided.

While Whispering Canyon is fun, the food isn't that terrific. I've been to Boma twice....once for breakfast and once for dinner and I wasn't that impressed with dinner. You have a tough choice.

I think the food at Whispering Canyon is delicious, actually. If you go, make sur eyou ask for ketchup. (That could be good audio for your show too.)

It's fun, go for it. Don't forget to ask for a straw for your drink and a large coke

How about Cape May at the Beach Club? I've only done their character breakfast there, which is really, really good. But I have heard good things about the "clambake" dinner buffet. I believe it's mostly seafood , but I think they also have some other meats on the buffet also.

I've never been to Whispering Canyon. Are the milkshakes as good as 50's Prime Time's?

Other than tuna fish sandwiches and maybe some scallops, I'm not much of a seafood eater.

I thought so Debbie. Although, in fairness, it's been a while since I had a milkshake at 50's Prime Time.
