So, I’m looking for a place to take a 7yr old boy for a disney memory. We are staying for 6 days, and I realized that I don’t have anything like that scheduled yet. We’re staying at the Swan, and I adr’d the seafood buffet + character meal at the hotel because he LOVES seafood (chip off the ol’ block,) but upon further review, I’m cancelling that ADR. (The food reviews are almost universally pretty horrendous.) While I don’t wanna bash the place, I just don’t want to risk it on such a high priced vacation. There’s really no reason since there are so many other options.
So - parameters:
Price is not an issue, but I generally scoff at overpriced food since I love to cook.
Seafood would be great, but not necessary.
Somewhere between (or AT) MK and Swan - monorail line is definitely being considered.
Cape May Cafe - simply for copious amts of seafood.
Ohana - for the Disney Cool factor.
Hoop De Do (The Mrs says she’s not interested, but I think she and the boy would absolutely LOVE it.)
Currently, We have one EMM scheduled at HS, so one super cool character meal is already scheduled. I’m also trying to land a BOG pre rd adr for one of the days.
The meal I’m trying to decide this for will be after an am tour of MK ending at 1pm, and before needing to be at HS by 7:30pm, OR
Before a 7pm evening tour of MK on a Saturday or Sunday, so Swan to MK, which means Boardwalk, Epcot, and therefore anything on the Monorail can be in play - though I don’t want to waste too much travel time - (I think hoop de doo would be fun enough for the extra travel “hoops” to jump through - see what I did there? tee hee.)
So now that I think about this - it’s kind of an “Iconic WDW boy” dinner, OR a dinner where a 7yr old boy can eat crab legs and shrimp until he wants no more, and not care that any characters or entertainment are not around - a healthy blend of both was what I was hoping for when I booked the seafood buffet at the hotel.
