Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
You've worked so hard for so long to earn your degree, so it's great that you are planning a special trip to celebrate your accomplishment. Walt Disney World is a great place to do so!
Both Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and The Crystal Palace are family favorites here, so you're off to a great start. Additional must-do restaurants include Le Cellier at Epcot's Canada Pavilion, Teppan Edo at Epcot's Japan Pavilion and The Coral Reef at Epcot's Future World. We also love Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano and The Hollywood Brown Derby, both of which are at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Keep in mind that there are fabulous restaurants located at WDW Resort hotels, too, and they are all accessible via complimentary WDW Resort transportation. We often book a Table Service meal at a hotel that's located next to the park we'll be visiting that day. For example, Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is right next to Magic Kingdom. Sanaa, at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas-Kidani Village is a quick bus ride from Animal Kingdom Park. (And both of these are among our family favorites, too!)
Again, congrats on your job well done, Lauren. Enjoy your celebration; be sure to send more questions as you think of them. We love to help!
