Sanaa was wonderful! Our server was great as well. Only thing I would recommend is dining there for lunch as the food can be quite filling and you definitely need time to walk it off.

For the signature dining, I think Citricos is often overlooked. Both the food and service were great!

Grand Floridian Cafe... Went on a whim a few years back for dinner. Great service, calm atmosphere, good food. Loved it.

I'm glad Olivia's is getting some love! Get the shrimp and grits next time. It's my favorite meal in all of WDW.

For out Disneymoon, I'm going to make ADRs at the Grand Floridan Cafe, The Wave, The Turf Club, and hopefully Sanaa, if I can talk my unadventurous eater fiance into that one.

I'd definitely vote Sanaa. If it wasn't so hard to get there, I'd eat there multiple times over the course of a stay. Love the Bird that sits outside the window and watches you eat!

Another vote for

Olivia's. We eat breakfast there 1-2 times per trip and the seafood ommlet is AMAZING. We have lunch there before we head to the airpport and can easily take half our sandwiches to eat on the plane they are so BIG!

OK I recently swtiched Olivias to another place. I have never been there. You have made me think twice. May have to switch back - sounds great.

I love Olivia's at Old Key West Resort.
I looove Olivia's! The food is always so great.
And unpopular opinion but I love Citrico's, we always go there, the food is so amazing and service is superb too! We always have our New Years Eve dinner there

Trails End. We discovered it three years ago, and at the time I'd heard very very little about it around here. Since then, I've noticed it getting a little more air time, but that could very well be that I'm just noticing it more because it's now permanently on my radar.

Mental note: Check out Olivia's.

I love the 50's Prime Time Cafe, It's always busy, but it's a name that I don't typically see on the boards. They have amazing fried chicken!

Getting a little bummed thought Olivia's was our secret spot (never overly crowded) for the last 15 years or so (DVC member since '94). Guess we're wrong based on all of the PPs who seem to like it as much as we do. Good for them they deserve the Love.
