      Positive aspects of the product (pros): great variety offood options not offered elsewhere, tasty food, well decorated dining rooms
      Cons: none

      I actually was staying at Pop Century, but when I couldn't find a suitable dinner choice that fit both my dietary needs and my palate, I walked across the bridge and came over to find something to eat. The dining rooms are beautifully decorated and had nicely themed settings. It is sooo much nicer than the retro-pop cafeteria style setting at Pop Century. The theming is well done here and I enjoyed the setting very much as well as just visiting the resort on my walk over. There were many different food options that aren't available elsewhere like the tandoori acorn squash with basmati rice, spinach and paneer, and naan bread. Really, were my eyes playing tricks? They had spinach and paneer? Acorn squash? Basmati rice? The clouds parted and angels sang. This must be food court heaven. So that was what I had. It was delicious and really refreshing to have such a change from sandwiches, burgers and fries, or pizza and pasta. I enjoyed everything on my plate and the portion size was quite generous with 2 pieces of roasted skin-on squash. This was way above usual food court food and it was definitely worth the trip over for. I saw several other interesting choices too like the tandoori chicken or the mongolian stir fry or the butter chicken. They also had the traditional food court burgers and fries and pizza and such. I can't wait to go back and try more! The staff was friendly and seemed to all smiles there. I only had the one meal here, but it was certainly outstanding and quite memorable. Yes, please.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Lots of different selections, excellent food
      Cons: Just a little confusion about ordering/lines

      I read a lot of good reviews about Landscape of Flavors, so we decided to walk across the Generation Gap Bridge from Pop Century and give it a try on our latest trip to WDW.
      My wife & 2 kids were on the dining plan, so we each got an entree, a dessert, and a drink.
      I got the Surf & Surf Burger after reading several good reviews, and I was not disappointed. The crab cake was not the best I've ever had, but it was good. The dish was so unique. I really enjoyed it. My wife got a custom pasta dish with bowtie pasta, alfredo sauce, chicken, and peas. Some reviews I read said that this station took forever, but that was not our experience. There was a little confusion about which end to start at, but that was our only problem. And the pasta...delicious. And the portion size was very generous. My wife was full before even reach the halfway point, and I overstuffed myself on what was left after trying a bite and continuing to eat it because it was so good. I was really impressed with the freshness of it. My son got a pizza and my daughter got a burger, both of which were good.
      For dessert, I got the pumpkin pecan tart, which was one of the best things I ate all week. Seriously, it was that good. And exactly how it sounds...a perfect marriage of pumpkin pie and pecan pie. Mmmmm...so good. My kids each got one of the Mickey cupcakes with the white chocolate Mickey face and Oreo ears. Really cute, and really good. A great treat for the kids. My wife opted for some raspberry gelato, which was also very good.
      Other than the slight confusion about the line at the pizza/pasta station, we had a really great experience here. Lots of great choices, and everything we ate was really good. If you're staying at AoA or even Pop Century, don't miss it!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Unique food
      Cons: noise

      The food here was very good; I especially love the pasta bowls and the gelato!
      The food court is busy most of the time and it can get very noisy at breakfast or dinner time but there is plenty of seating and there are seats outside if you want to get away from the noise.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Better than a vending machine
      Cons: Slow service and poor selection of food

      I was excited at first to have a food court at our resort. My first meal was the pasta with pesto. The pesto was so horrible I didn't even finish my meal. The next time I went back I ordered a meatball sandwich. The meatballs had no flavor and the marinara was plain. The thing that totally ruined it was the hard thick bread they put on top of the meat balls.

      The hamburgers were really plain. After a few meals our family totally gave up on this food court and traveled over to Pop Century resort. We were so happy with the selection of food available. It was a hundred times better than Art of Animation.

      I figured since the Art of Animation was new the food would be better. It was so bad we actually ordered pizza from an outside company.

      It is slightly better than vending machine food, but barely. Save your money and either eat at the parks, or go to another resort.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Variety
      Cons: Separate lines

      We stayed at AoA in March of 2013. We are planning another trip and I just realized that I never wrote reviews! AoA was amazing and we loved the Landscape of Flavors! The caprese sandwich and surf and surf burger were fantastic! I also couldn't get enough of there house made chips!! So, so good! We loved everything about AoA and their food options just enhanced the experience!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great Variety
      Cons: Some stations close VERY early

      I was coming back from a day at the Magic Kingdom and got on the wrong bus ending up at Art Of Animation instead of Pop Century. While at AoA I decided to partake in the Landscape of Flavors food court. The main draw here is the make your own pasta where you choose the noodles, sauce, and everything else but I opted for a meatball sandwich instead. The meatballs were huge and very flavorful as was the bread and sauce. For dessert I opted for a Mickey Mouse cupcake with Oreo Cookies for the ears that I actually saved for breakfast the next morning. It was very rich and very delicious. The cookies where very soft and easy to chew. Landscape Of Flavors is definitely worth a visit if staying at AoA or even just across the bridge at Pop Century.

      I was at Landscape of Flavors around 11pm and it's notable that every station except the pasta was closed at that time.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): none
      Cons: very exoctic food for a family resort

      The food is just way too weird and exotic for a family with children, even normal foods like the burgers and pizza are different. Could not find one thing my daughter would even think about eating other than desert

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to find seats, good food
      Cons: Very long line for pasta, so shrimp in pasta, gelato station closed at 9pm

      My family and I ate here for dinner after arrival at the resort on 1/6. It was late when we arrived, and we didn't eat dinner until nearly 9pm. My mom, brother, and I all wanted pasta. My friend ordered the pastrami cheeseburger. He was done with his entire meal by the time I made it through the pasta line. It took probably 25 minutes.

      I asked for three orders of linguine alfredo, two with shrimp and one with chicken. I guess they didn't hear me say shrimp for the third one because there was no shrimp in it. I shared some from my dish. My friend adored his pastrami cheeseburger. My mom and I each ordered a large fruit pastry. I didn't like it. My brother had prepackaged brownie bites which he scarfed down. My friend had cheesecake bites and he said they were great. I wanted gelato but the station was closed.

      We also ate lunch at the resort on 1/10 before heading back to the airport. My brother and I each got a pork sandwich. I found it a little spicy but we both liked the chips. My mom had the caprese sandwich and I think she ate the whole thing. She had Mickey ganache for dessert, I was finally able to get my gelato, and my brother had half of a cheese danish.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): A nice variety.
      Cons: Can be very loud and confusing during busy times.

      For this review I will also share some tips my husband and I found that worked with our family. When we stayed here a year ago, we were frustrated with how cold our food was by the time we were seated. So we tried something new this trip that worked:
      We decided before we ordered for anyone what everyone in our party would be getting. My husband would then go with our youngest children and get all napkins, condiments, etc. and find a table. My oldest son and I would get any drinks first before getting our food. Then, we would split up and go in the lines to order the food our family wanted. (pizza line for some, grill for others, etc.) By the time we got our food, we only had to pay as everything else was ready. So we enjoyed HOT food for our dinner.
      The food we enjoyed during our trips here include, the butter chicken, the pizza, and the surf and surf burger.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): many food selections
      Cons: out of many items, noisy, dirty tables

      Even though I was staying at Port Orleans, my husband and I went to this food court for dinner one night based on the prior year's experience. I had my mouth set on the surf and surf burger. This year, not so good.(9/11) The burger did not have the fresh lump crab meat on it this year. The shrimp had been sitting for a while and were cold and chewy. My husband had the same thing and was very disappointed too. The drink station had many issues. There was no cream for the coffee. They were out of ice and lemons for the tea. Most all of the tables were dirty and they had not swept up the food from the floors from earlier. I bought a mickey mouse shaped fruit pastry in chocolate cake. I shouldn't have been taken by the mickey shaped dessert. The chocolate didn't have much taste. My husband and I were expecting the quality of the food that we had in the previous year and were disappointed we chose our dinner night out away from the kids here.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): themeing and decor
      Cons: extremely slow service.

      The food was ok here. They tried to be to far outside the box with place. If your going to go that route, dedicate one of your lines to typical American fast food. How do you have a food court with no chicken nuggets for kids. The build your own burger, salad and pasta were nice additions. However when these items were ordered you might as well plan on waiting for a long time. It's a food court, simplify it.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Variety, quality
      Cons: Not a lot of "familiar" food

      We dined here twice. Once for lunch on our arrival day, 7/24, and once for dinner on 7/26. We ate lunch around 3pm and the food court was not crowded. Two of us ordered the Make Your Own Burger and one got the BBQ sandwich. The fries were very good, and we had no complaints on the sandwiches either. Two people got gelato (chocolate and Nutella) which they enjoyed, and I got the Everything Brownie, which was far too rich and full of stuff for me to eat more than a couple of bites.

      For dinner, I ordered the make your own pasta with shrimp, alfredo and linguine. It also came with a breadstick. So good, but so much pasta! One person ordered the tandoori chicken with cauliflower and and multigrain rice, which he enjoyed. Another person had a sort of steak sandwich with cinnamon potatoes, which was not filling, and she also ordered a kids' corndog and fries. Pistachio gelato was declared a winner and I got a pumpkin tart. I took it back to the room for later, and ended up not liking it.

      We ordered pizza delivery on 7/27 around 4:30pm. It came within half an hour. Our order was for a cheese pizza, two tye dye cheesecakes, and a mini margarita and mini mudslide. Of course, once they add on all the taxes and fees, the total was $45. But it was convenient and the pizza was not as bad as I expect Disney pizza to be. The tye dye cheesecake was delicious as always.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Service and Selection
      Cons: None

      My family of 6 had lunch here a few times during our 6 day visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lines always moved quickly, although crowded at times.
      My kids enjoyed the individual pizzas and fruit smoothies, and my husband and I enjoyed the caprese sandwich with homemade bbq chips. Yummy!
      There are a lot of choices here, especially for those who want a healthier meal.
