Fine Dining in Disney World?

Had a wonderful dinner at Bull and Bear Steakhouse last night. When you guys go to Disney World how much fine dining do you like to try? We really enjoy it, but it's not a necessity for us. Sometimes we hit a bunch and sometimes not much at all. I think we've been doing a bit more recently. So how often do you try to mix in some fine cuisine?

We usually try to go a couple of times per trip. One of those is usually at Shula's in the Dolphin Hotel and the other one we alternate to places like Chef's de France, Flying Fish, Jikos, Texas de Brazil (off property) or other places like that.

We usually do several each trip. We usually stick with our favorites but hope to try a few new ones on one of our trips.

It's not a big thing for us. We pretty much consider Kona fine dining. We are very classy. Ha!

No, we were always on the dining plan and never wanted to use double credits or anything like that so we never did. I really wish we would have on our honeymoon..but alas. Now with kids..not happening anytime soon!

We love fine dining, but it's cost prohibitive Smile So, we try and make it to WDW once a year or so for special occasions, or to meet friends, and we save our fine dining options for those special opportunities.

What are some of y'all's faves when it comes to fine dining?

So far we have three on our favorite list. The California Grill, The Brown Derby and Fultons. We keep going back to our favorites. We need to try some of the others.

When McDonald's left Downtown Disney I considered that the end of fine dining at the 'World'.

Just in case it ever comes up the new place there is pretty good though, Joe. A bit more pricey I think though.

If we have the dining plan, we may do one signature dining on a given. But other than that, not our thing.

When I go with just the DH we do at least two signature restaurants because we can't afford much more than that. When we go with my mom, however, it's a different story. The whole fun of WDW for her is the food and wine. We live in MN, so there is fine dining here, but not a huge selection so WDW is really great.

This trip she was *dead* set on deluxe DP...and I had a hard time finding enough signature meals for the trip. We all know that a huge part of this trip will be spent eating, but the last trip we did was the other way around, doing every tour we possibly could, so this will be a new treat.

With the dining plan, I do whatever fine dining is available for 1 token. I'd love to try a signature restaurant, maybe next trip! Artist's Point at Wilderness Lodge sounds great.

Artist's Point is one of my favorites! Love California Grill and Brown Derby, too. Oh, and Jiko, of course! I really want to try Citricos next, I think.

Who has been to Citrico's? Impressions?
