I have no idea what our listeners are using as their criteria. We just put it out there, and let them have fun with it!


Can you say Heads or Tails? Only Kidding, but it's tough voting on a match-up where you have been to neither place. I go with what I have heard from our friends online.

I could see the Whispering Canyon/Ohana match going either way to be honest.


I guess...Can you tell I'm being bias. :thumleft:

I'm sorry, but Whispering Canyon is not better than Ohana. Disappointing... :roll:

Maybe Ohana got caught in a transitional period with their new food/menu. I haven't tried the new menu yet.


I just did both. WCC was very good. I prefer 'ohana but only slightly

but how is Boma not a final 4?
JAMBO EVERYONE!

I'm very surprised by some of these elite 8 eateries. Rose & Crown? Liberty Tree Tavern?

Yet, no Boma.

I do like the fact that the Sci-Fi lasted longer than the Prime Time
JAMBO EVERYONE!

A lot has to do with the way the brackets were set up. Some restaurants had less competition than others.

I suppose but Boma is often rated one of the best places in WDW. Its surprising it didn't amke it into the Elite 8 anyway

I am totally boggled that, from the group that contained V&A, Boma, Spoodles, and Bistro, we have the choice of Liberty Tree and Chef Mickey's. I get that more people probably experienced Brown Derby over Jiko's, as the former is in the parks versus in a resort, but Whispering Canyon over Sci-Fi? That many people have gone all the way over to Whispering Canyon?

All I can say is--go California Grill! Go!

Besides, go to the Whispering Canyon Cafe. Its good. Liberty Tree Tavern, however, has no business being in the final 8
JAMBO EVERYONE!

Sorry, Matt-
While I enjoy Brown Derbey, if it comes down to selecting between California Grill and Brown Derby, CG gets my vote! Not only is the food excellent but viewing the fireworks over the castle at CG is an amazing experience!!!!

Sorry, Matt....
looks like Brown Derby is no longer in the running BUT California Grill is!!!! YIPEE!!!!! For less formal (casual elegance) CG is my favorite, tied with Victoria and Albert's if you want to go more formal elegant....
