For years, Epcot's Le Cellier Steakhouse and the Magic Kingdom's have provided the toughest "gets" in Disney's Priority Seating system. Getting a ressie at the California Grill atop the Contemporary Resort (the restaurant closes Monday for refurbishment, reopening this summer) also has frustrated many Disney visitors. And Disney's just debuted Monsieur Paul, the replacement for the multiple Theme Park Insider Award-winning Bistro de Paris, in Epcot's France pavilion.
I suspect that many Disney fans would be thrilled to be able to land a table at any of these fives popular restaurants. But which is the one where you'd most want to dine?
Let's dream here, shall we? Imagine that a Disney cast member walks up to you at the park gate and tells you that you've won a special "Limited Time Magic" contest. You get to dine, for free, at one of the five restaurants for dinner tonight. (Let's assume this is happening after the California Grill reopens.) Which one do you pick?
That's our vote of the week.
Tell us in comments why you'd select your choice. And if you've dined at one of these restaurants already, please do click through to their listing pages (linked above) and submit a rating and review, if you haven't done so already. Theme Park Insider reader ratings will determine which attractions, restaurant and hotel win the annual Theme Park Insider Awards, which we will announce this July 4.
Thank you, again, for being part of Theme Park Insider, and, again, Happy New Year!Tweet
I do have to say that the Flying Fish Chef's Counter along with V&A's Queen Victoria's Room are more accessible that are just a notch down from the pinacle of Disney Dining experiences.
MP is actually a relatively easy get, given the price, but I threw in the wrinkle of "free" to see if that would elicit some votes. That would be my pick, BTW.
I am still going for the old familiar: Canada. It appears to be keeping its charm with all its price increases.
Anyway, the meal at Le Cellier was very nice. It was the best filet mignon steak I have ever eaten. The Risotto that was also served on the plate was also great. Really enjoyed that particular plate of food. Having said all this, I chose be our guest because I have not eaten there and it is the new thing.... and really the only resteraunt of that sort in the Magic Kingdom.

So this made it much more coveted for our family
Buit for those traveling with kids, sometimes chef mickeys or crystal palace are great because you can "kill two birds with one stone" by getting some meet and greets done while eating and thus also saving valuable time
