Regular TS that gives a close to signature experience?
 
Never saw this asked before and was wondering if any Disney restaurants are close to signature ( in your opinion) ? I think when Tuttu Italia first opened it was close. Haven't been there in a few years though.

No, not in my opinion

Personally, I would much rather dine at Akershus than at Cindrella's Royal Table. I think that the only reason the latter is a signature of over the former is because of dining in the castle. However, as far as signature character dining goes, I think Akersus is as close as they come.

the reception, service and ambience at grand floridian cafe would come close

haven't been to sanaa but based on photos and reviews it might be just under a signature

le cellier definitely would be up there, prior to last year

Sanaa is as close as you will get.

Honestly, I don't know if there really is much difference. i.e. Le Cellier went from 1 to 2 credits but it was still the same food/restaurant.

I agree with other posters that Sanaa is your best bet.

Sanaa is closest for me as well. It has really good food and is the ONLY restaurant you can view animals at while eating.

Haven't been back to Saana since they opened. We were very disappointed with the desserts ( not to mention the attempt at giraffe mating the entire meal :love: very distracting!) Off to check out the menus, see if they've changed their desserts. ( may also google mating season of captive giraffes)

Tutto Italia is still pretty close for me because of the decor and service. I really didn't care for Sanaa - but that is not my type of cuisine. I agree with poster about Grand Floridian Cafe for decor. The food was ok there, but not the service. The Turf Club at SSR and Olivia's at OKW have great food and service.

You reminded me if another PG13 memory. DH and I dined there a few years ago. When the belly dancer was done with her dance, a little boy, maybe 3 years old,ran up to her to get his picture taken with her. Well, he would not let go of her thigh, mom and dad both tried to pry him off as the line of little girls formed to have their pic taken with her. He just wouldn't let go, so the other families just took pics of their little girls with this little boy hanging off the thigh of the poor young woman :rotfl2: So funny!

Another vote for Sanaa. We were just there last week and were very impressed!
