We really enjoy the Tappan Edo. It's a traditional Japanese Tappanyaki restaurant. The guests are seated at tables of 8, so if you are in a smaller party you will share with another group. We have had some chatty groups and some quieter ones, but we've always enjoyed meeting with the other guests.

The chef prepares your meal on a hot plate in front of you, and they put on a show whilst they are doing so. They are very entertaining and the food is delicious.

It's a great choice for fussy eaters, as whilst the venue is very unusual, the food is steak or chicken with rice and noodles. The mean can be cooked without any sauces if you prefer.

We spent a week at OKW in a studio August 2011. The room is very large, with 2 double beds. This is unique amongst DVC studios, as most of them have a bed and a sofa bed.
The studios also have a kitchenette area which is very useful for breakfast. There is a toaster, microwave, coffee maker and fridge. We liked to have breakfast in the room before setting out for our day.

We had an ok stay at OKW but we probably wouldn't rush back. Mainly due to the size of the resort, which is very large, I wouldn't want to stay here without a car.

We ate at Olivia's which was excellent, and the staff in Hospitality House were also excellent.

All in all, a mixed experience. Nice large room, but we prefer the DVC resorts that are more hotel in style as we felt a bit isolated.

The villas at the Boardwalk are our favourite place to stay. We are heading back for our 4th visit this summer. We have stayed in both the one bed villas, and the studio villas. The one bed villas are superb. They are absolutely massive, with a full kitchen, living area, huge bedroom, massive closet and the very useful washer and dryer. If you also have the Boardwalk view, then you can see the Epcot Fireworks from your balcony which is just the icing on the cake.

The studios are obviously smaller, but we love the layout of these rooms. There is a 'lobby area' as you enter, then the kitchen/bathroom/wardrobe area, and finally you come through into the main room with a bed and sofabed. We like to put the sofa away during the day so we have a sofa to sit at when watching tv, relaxing etc, and then we pull it out at night. They are quite easy to put up and down, and the beds are pretty comfortable considering it's a sofa bed.

The kitchenette is quite useful for breakfast or quick meals.

The best thing about the Boardwalk Villas is the location. You are right on the boardwalk with bars and restaurants on your doorstep. And, it's a lovely walk to Epcot or MGM studios. You are really in the midst of everything. There is a great lively atmosphere as you walk around.

We really enjoyed our stay at POFQ. The resort is nice and small, so you are always close to the food court, bus stops and pool area.

We had a corner room with 2 windows which meant it felt much brighter, but I think all of the moderate rooms tend to be a bit dark with the single window at the end of the room.

The resort area is very beautiful, with fountains and courtyards.
We would quite happily stay here again.

One of our favourites. The 2 for $20 makes for a very reasonable meal, and we have always enjoyed our food in there. We particularly like the boneless chicken wings which are absolutely delicious.

We prefer the one at Hunter's Creek, but have also enjoyed a meal at the LBV location.

One of our favourites. We seem to eat here on every trip. The restaurant is nice and bright and airy, and the buffet has a good range of food.
We like to book for lunch, as they have a nice range of food but it's not as expensive as in the evening.
The Characters all come around to your table, and your server will make sure that you get to meet them all. We have only had to wait if the parade is on, as the characters appear in the parade, so they have to leave the restaurant.

These buffets are great for kids as they don't have to wait for food to be prepared, and they can try lots of things, so if they aren't sure if they will like something they can try it, and if not, they can have something else.

This is a very different park from the rest. I think before you visit, it's hard to know what to expect.

It's not a high thrills rollercoaster park, although there are thrills to be had at Mission Space and Test Track, but that's not really what Epcot is all about.

It's a park to slow down in, and soak up the details. There are loads of street entertainers, and if you spot something interesting, it's well worth stopping and taking a look.

We really enjoy walking around the countries, browsing the shops, eating something a little different, speaking to the cast members, and just soaking up the ambience.
