[QUOTE=PeterMac;1085339]All of the MK resorts are pretty easy to get to:Contemporary by monorail or by foot, Poly and Grand Floridian by boat or monorail, and Wilderness lodge by launch. I could recommend O’hana’s and Whispering Canyon as fun places and good values, Narcoosee’s if you want something more upscale.[/QUOTE]
Narcoossee’s and Chef Mickey’s are not open for lunch. Narcoossee’s opens nightly for dinner only at 5:00-5:30 PM, the same goes for California Grill. At the Contemporary, you’ll be stuck with The Wave as your only lunch option.
You could take the boat over to Wilderness Lodge for Whispering Canyon. They have all you can eat options as well as ala carte menus, and if you want to involve yourself in stupid shenanigans while eating, this place is for you. There’s the Grand Floridian Cafe and Poly’s Kona Cafe, but they offer no additional “fun” beyond good meals. And there’s also the Trail’s End at Fart Wilderness for lunch (sadly no longer offering their breakfast buffet) which is currently offering an ala carte menu instead of the buffet. Again, no added fun.
'Ohana at the Poly is only open for breakfast and dinner and characters are only there for breakfast. 'Ohana seems to be best enjoyed as part of a large group and is not in any way designed for intimate dining and I give major points off for being family service with a limited selection as opposed to a full ala carte menu like Kona Cafe or a bountiful buffet like CP. (Your mileage WILL be different)
I would not go to Tony’s for lunch but Liberty Tree would also be an inside MK option, though again, no added fun.
Of course, my first choice would be breakfast and/or lunch at CP, or breakfast and/or dinner (yes, I could eat there twice in one week and possibly even have breakfast there twice during the week). But the dinner menu is the lunch menu with some added items, if you did lunch and dinner, it would really be the same meal twice.
Anyway, I’ve specifically scheduled CP’s breakfast for several anniversaries and had lunch there on my birthday as well.
