Crystal Palace Restaurant Review: Magic Kingdom’s Crystal Palace is in a pleasant setting at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., a beautiful building inspired by San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers. Inside, the food isn’t fancy but well prepared for a buffet, and an ideal spot for families for lunch or dinner who want to take the time to relax at mealtime instead of munching fast food as they hurry from one ride to the next. The substantial buffet stretches across the front of the room, laden with prime rib, rotisserie chicken and Atlantic salmon, inventive side dishes (we like the broccoli with citrusy sauce), and a salad bar (there’s pizza, mac ‘n’ cheese, green beans and chicken fingers for the kids). Evenings the buffet expands, and truly is a bargain for hungry tourists. Kids like the place because Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and other characters from the Hundred Acre Woods make the rounds---and there's an ice cream sundae bar.
