Hi, my name is Crystal and this is my 1st post here. My family likes fun restaurants with good food. Dh likes steak, burgers, crispy chicken, salads, guy food and I like grilled chicken, pork, steak, most cooked veggies, mexican, japenese, etc but are open to trying most new foods except fish or lamb. (I've been on a 1,200 cal diet all year, but am splurging for vacation!)The kids are average are happy if they have mac & cheese & basic kids meals.

This is my family's first visit to Disney/Orlando/ Florida and we are 27 (dh), 27 (me), 6 (dd), and 5 (ds). We are going 2 character meals at Disney for the kids, Chef Mickey dinner and Garden Grill lunch as well as 50's Prime Time lunch for dh. I don't want to spend $70-90 for every meal though, maybe $25 for lunch & $50 for dinner for 4? :).

We will be at Disney offsite for 8 days. Breakfast is at the condo, so I'm wanting to plan the rest of our meals at places with good/great food & fun atmosphere or just great food with kid foods too. I love nice finer restaurants too, but don't think the patrons would appreciate my hyper 5 year old. I don't really like fast food, buffets or cafeteria style resteraunts, or those that have a lot of smoking, but I don't care if they are chains. Hopefully I'm specific enough, lol.

So far on my tentative list are: Flame Tree Grill, Bahama Breeze, Tijuana Flats, and Black Bean Deli, Tu Tu Tango, and Bubba Gumps? How are these restaurants and any others to recommend? Thanks,
