Wolfgang Puck Express is where its at!!!!!!!! Seriously, the food is simply to die for. Its not cheap, which is fine cause your on the DP!!!! Great value!

Some meals that are delicious and to die for which I've tried are: spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs were amazing. Pizza is fantastic. But my ultimate fave dish EVER is the bacon wrapped meatloaf with mashed potatoes and onion straws. Best i ever had. Portions are huge here btw.

I haven't tried their salads but i hear they're terrific. I heard breakfast is great too.

In epcot you should try sunshine seasons.

Be Our Guest (lunch) can be recommended for higher quality food including healthy options like salads. It was also posted here that the onion soup is made without animal stocks and is vegetarian. It's loaded with cheese so probably not really healthy.

It's expensive though, and the portions are not large enough to share.

I agree with all of the suggestions so far, although I have not yet been to BoG. I also think Tangierine Café in Epcot (in the Morocco Pavilion) is very good. I like Columbia Harbor House, too. They have a salmon entrée with broccoli and couscous that looks to be pretty healthy. I like the BBQ chicken salad at FlameTree BBQ in Animal Kingdom as another fairly healthy option.

Breakfast is the toughest one, I think, because there are a lot of breakfast pastries, which don't tend to be so healthy. Main Street Bakery has an Egg, Ham, and Cheese Croissant that at least will get you some protein. Many places do have fresh fruit, though.

I think all my favorites have been listed so far:

Columbia Harbor House in MK.
Flame Tree BBQ in AK.
Tangierine Cafe in Epcot.
Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD.

I don't really have any CS suggestions for DHS.

I can't help with breakfast suggestions because it isn't something we eat - we usually grab something quick, fruit or a pastry, rather than take the time to have a real meal before starting the day.

I think most of my favorites have already been mentioned but I didn't see this one come up - We really enjoyed the renovated QS in Japan. It is somewhat lighter fare with sushi and teriyaki and such, and everything we tried was excellent.

My first recommendation is to pay of Breakfast out of pocket. It is usually the cheapest meal of the day. We use the QS for lunch, and the TS for dinner. We usually want a quick lunch in the park, and it is nice to relax and enjoy a sit down meal for dinner. Tip - Some QS restaurants will let you get a bottle of water instead of the dessert at lunch.

Here is what we liked from our visit in Feb.
Breakfast - we stay at the Polynesian so we pay for breakfast OOP from Capt Cooks. Nothing like a Mickey waffle to start your day at WDW.
Lunch - The only QS meal we really like is Columbia Harbor House at MK. My wife likes the salmon, broccoli, couscous meal DEA mentioned. We also like Restaurantosaurus at AK. My kids are pretty picky so we have to find a restaurant with hot dogs, chicken nuggets, or cheeseburgers on the kids menu to keep them happy.
Dinner - we usually do character or themed for dinner. Our favorites are Akershus, Chef Mickey, Rainforest at AK.

Trying O'hana, BOG, Hollywood and Vine, and either Liberty Inn or La Cantina de San Angel for our trip in Feb 2013.

Sunshine Seasons, Tangierine Cafe, and Be Our Guest are all good options. At BOG you have the option of getting green beans instead of fries with your sandwich.

At DHS, we always go to Starring Rolls for breakfast. They have a variety of items, like tarts and pastries, but they also have fresh fruit, bagels, and other items that won't bog you down. I pay OOP for all meals but this is a good start to our day!

Earl of Sandwich is great as is Wolf Gang Puck Express. We like Contempo Cafe and Sunshine Seasons as well. We also love the Po Boy sandwich at POFQ. It is soooo good!

Thank you for asking this! I was thinking the same thing, and now I'm armed with this information.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations.

Or bring breakfast items from home...that seemed to be the easiest and healthiest option for us!

But we are a cereal bar for breakfast family.....not practical for everyone!
