Could be the World, France, Japan, or DisneyLand proper. Don't care (but mention it at the top of your post).
Mine are for DisneyWorld. I may forget a few, but truly if it didn't make a lasting memory, that's a review of its own ;)
I'm not going to bother noting any of the quick service places we went to. I got salad everywhere at these. 99% of the time it was a caesar salad and it was fine. The ONLY time I didn't was at Disney Studios--one of the quick serve places near Tower of Terror had a Mexican salad which was AWESOMELY good. Otherwise, what can be said about croutons and romaine, right? LOL
Turf Club Bar and Grill (Saratoga Spring): We loved this one. American cuisine. I got grilled lamb chops which were absolutely delicious. Everyone liked what they got (most everyone else got steak or something like it. My DIL is the only other truly adventurous eater besides me :)
Akershus House (Norway/Epcot). We did this the time before last when John's little sister was still into Disney princesses. We did the lunchtime Princess lunch. Very good food.
1900 Park Fare: (Grand Floridian--character breakfast). Meh. I mean, it wasn't bad, but if I weren't on a meal plan, I wouldn't do it again. It *did* have different characters than most of the other character breakfast type places, so for those looking for signatures, that's a good place to get some of the more obscure ones (Mary Poppins, Alice, The Mad Hatter--the dude playing the Mad Hatter was hysterical :)
Chef Mickeys: (Contemporary--character breakfast). I liked this breakfast a lot more than 1900 Park Fare. But YMMV, because I couldn't really say precisely why this one was better. It *might* have been that it was earlier in our stay :)
Whispering Canyon Cafe: (Wilderness Lodge--dinner). This is almost a Fridays/Ruby Tuesdays-ish kind of place, but their claim to fame is the endless milk shakes (which are REALLY good, but hideously filling). They do activities with the guests--it varies from visit to visit (it may be the same schtick for several months--I've never been often enough to tell :), but the last time, they made all the men get up and dance and sing to "I'm a Little Teapot". I was never so glad in all my life that my camera has video recording capabilities :D
Hoop Dee Do Revu (Fort Wilderness--dinner). I believe this is the only meal that counts as two seated service meals. Oh. My. God. It's worth it. They do a Hee-Haw type comedy show during/after dinner and it's a family meal style service. They just bring a bunch of chicken and ribs to your table, plus a bunch of sides. Dessert when we were there was strawberry shortcake--it was the best strawberry shortcake I've ever had.
Biergarten Restaurant (German/Epcot--dinner buffet). This is the only meal that I really didn't care for at all. Based on our receipts, they hit up diners $33/person. SO. NOT. WORTH. IT. Maybe if they only charged $10 or $12, the quality of the food would be understandable, but seriously? There's no way that place was worth any $33/person. And I *love* German food...
Liberty Tree Tavern (Liberty Square/Magic Kingdom--character lunch). Colonial American cuisine. This one was very good. Another place with an awesome dessert (apple/peach crisp, served warm with ice cream).
