4. The Crystal Palace

The Crystal Palace Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Theme Park serves a buffet of American cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy Character Dining with Winnie the Pooh and friends for a willy nilly delicious good time!

Step into The Hundred Acre Wood as you enter this whimsical restaurant. Marvel at the colorful Character topiary of Winnie the Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger. The light and airy ambience fits the upbeat blustery mood, surrounded by Victorian elegance.

You can also try the Main Street Bake Shop which is a great option for a cheaper breakfast. In addition to baked goods, mostly priced in the $2-$3 range, you can get breakfast quiche or cottage cheese and fruit for around $4.

5. 50's Prime Time Cafe

The Prime Time Cafe is not so much a restaurant as an experience. 50's Prime Time Café serves classic American comfort food in a TV-themed setting. The restaurant sits across from Echo Lake in Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park .

The 50's Prime Time Café menu includes family favorites like golden fried chicken, traditional meatloaf and pot roast, cooked the way Mom used to make it—that is, if Mom were a 1950s sitcom star.

Be welcomed into Mom's family and feel at home in her kitchenette. But Mom expects you to mind your manners, so don't be surprised if she tells you to keep your elbows off the table. It's all part of the old-fashioned fun and gentle ribbing that's served up along with the food making it easy to decide where to eat in Walt Disney World.

It is a great place to eat in Walt Disney World (Disney MGM Studios). Full service restaurant and lounge where you'll feel like you're in a '50s sitcom. Pot roast, chicken pot pie and meat loaf with mushroom gravy are standouts.

      Very good article. For a less expensive quick service option, I have to get the ribs from Flame Tree BBQ in Animal Kingdom every visit.

      My son has a severe peanut allergy - how accommodating are the resorts for this allergy? We'd like to book some character meals, if possible.
