    Default What is one place you would NOT eat again, and why?

    Ours would be Trails End Buffet - we discovered we didn't care for most of the food served, and it was a nightmare to get there. (took the boats, but it was on a Hoop-Dee-Doo night so we were very late.

    Coral Reef. We've only been there once, in 2001, and it was bad enough to convince my husband to never go back again. It was a complete nightmare experience from start to finish, and complaining to management didn't get us anywhere, not one apology. We waited an hour to sit. Husband's steak was not cooked (not even rare- I love rare and I couldn't have eaten it, the outside was still red). I didn't want to eat mine until he had his, but the server refused to hold my food or keep it warm. His steak came back an hour later. They served my kids the completely wrong orders and acted like it was our fault. Our entire meal took three hours (so four hours for the whole experience), and it was our arrival night. We were exhausted and fed up with the place.

    I have actually been back for private dining in the Living Seas pavilion, and it was delicious. I tried to convince husband to give Coral Reef another shot, but he will not set foot in the place (and I can't really blame him). Our worst meal ever.

    For me it would be the princess breakfast at the Norway Pavilion. My friend used to rave about it to me all the time, and how she would never miss it on a trip to the world. So, finally one year, I decided to try it. Never again! It was VERY overpriced (which I understand you get a photo with it, and eating with the Princesses) but the food was NOT good. I could get better breakfast food at the all stars food courts! So that's mine!

    1900 Park Fair for dinner. It was just awful and I don't wish to ever try it again.

    There aren't many places I wouldn't give at least a second chance. We didn't really love Le Cellier the first time we ate there, but due to rave reviews we tried it again. It was OK, but nothing special in our opinion. I'd rather leave spots open for those who really love it than to try it again. I also didn't care for Boma on our first try, but I'd definitely like to try it again. Maybe it was an off night. However, 1900 Park Fair was so awful that I don't ever need to try again. It's one of the only places anywhere, not just Disney, that I won't give a second chance.

    The Wave. Everything was simply disappointing. It wasn't terrible, just unexceptional in every way. There are too many good restaurants to enjoy to waste time at The Wave.

    For us I would guess it would be Boma or 50's Prime Time. AKL is very nice, just didn't really like the food. Have been to 50's twice and while the atmosphere was really neat and reminded me of being at my grandparent's house when I was a kid, I was not impressed with the food either time. So these two are the ones on our list that are marked...been there...done that...other places we would like to try.

    Since I only get one, I'll go with the Polynesian.

    Nothing there was worth the trip,, Ohana's and the Luau included...

    Someone stole my Coral Reef answer, so I'll stick with the above.

    I have to ditto ABC Commissary. It took forever to get our order after we placed it. The food wasn't great and my mom's hamburger was cold - not 'had been sitting there too lon'g cold - 'never heated up after it came out of the fridge' cold.

    Sounds to me like the ABC Commissary was true to the true ABC Commissary. At least when I ate there.

    Garden Grill. It's been about 10 years since we ate there, the food was horrible. The food just sat in my stomach all day.

    I'm sure they've changed the menu, but I'm just not going back.

    The Brown Derby

    After waiting forever and a day to get in (even with an ADR) the service was terrible. Dinner selections were disgusting, food was cold, overall terrible experience!!!! We will never go back.

    With so many outstanding choices at WDW, don't waste your time or money at this place!

    Mine would have to be Capn Jacks... Food was cold,and not that great... my son wanted an extra corn on the cob, when he got it and I started to take the corn off the cob, it was still frozen... Service was bad...and then she had the nerve to grat us, we proptly removed the tip. We tip for good service and good food...this place was lacking on both accounts

    Boma
    I love going to AKL. I even like the experience of the Boma. But I just do not like the food. My family loves it and for the last 3 years wanted to go. Every time I say well, ok, maybe I will find something I like this year. Nope! I leave starving everytime because I dislike everything I try! Last year half of the family were not as crazy about it as usual. I told them they are finally seeing what I've been seeing. Love the AKL experience but Im not waisting another evening at the Boma unless my family forces me. And actually my sis in law said she wanted to go back next trip and I told her that she is welcome to but we will eat somewhere else.

    When ever someone asks about it I steer them to another restuarant..

    To sum it up...Super YUCK!!!!!

    Rainforest Cafe. It was loud, over priced, the server had a bad attitude, and I got food poisoning. Never, ever again

    Cape May. I know, I know, most people love it, but I had my worst Disney experience ever at this restaurant. First they sat us at a table that was impossible to get to/from at a buffet. We were moved, food was mediocre, then they charged my debit card twice for the meal. I asked them for a copy of the credit and they told me it could not be credited at that time. They eventually gave me a copy of a receipt that they said was my credit so I would leave. Upon leaving the restaurant, I looked at the receipt, and it was for a different amount, was not a credit, and was for another table. Manager of the restaurant was no help, but the manager of the resort was, and I was promptly credited for everything (although being a debit card it took a few days). It was awful, so very un-Disney. There was no joy in Mudville that day.

    I'll second Rain Forest cafe. At least for us, the food was fine, but it was just too loud and obnoxious and my DS (3 years old at the time) was terrified of the moving animals.

    I've read through the posts, and some places on peoples "bad lists" really surprise me. I've been to the Brown Derby... eh... 5 or so times and only had wonderful food and service. It's one of our favorite places. I've had plenty of meals at The Wave and 50's Primetime--I wouldn't rave about either, but I'm fine going there.
