Some of you know - I love a good table service spot. My trips are usually filled with them. I have dined at most of the Signature restaurants except the big ones at GF and EPCOT. And because my upcoming trip will be a little less ADR forward, I am looking to reserve just one more “memorable” spot. My original choice was Narcoossee’s. For atmosphere and fireworks viewing. (Haven’t dined there since the mid 2000’s.) And I’ve been having a sucker of a time getting a reservation. Finally, @OBNurseNH was like - Yeah, well. You do know Narcoossee’s is closed for refurbishment, right.
I currently have Citricos reserved (a first), but feel iffy about it. Seems stuffy … and I will be solo.
Also hoarding a dinner ADR for Sanaa. (also a first.)
Doesn’t have to be fancy - just Disney memorable. To give you an idea - some of my favorite Disney memorables are Tony’s, ‘Ohana, California Grill, Paddlefish (especially when it was Fulton’s), Liberty Tree, Jiko, Tiffins,and Sci Fi…
It can be a repeat - like 50’s, Space 220, Skipper Canteen. And in that case, just help me remember why it’s so memorable.
I am clearly on an appetizer run today, but I would go to Citricos, sit in the lounge and get the Duck Tagliatelle appetizer. Either appetizer size or have them upsize it. It is my favorite dish on property.
Citricos is formal, but IMO it is too bright and pretty to be stuffy. I like the lounge because it is one step more casual.
Now I want to do a monorail progressive dinner with the steak and eggs from Steakhouse 71 and the duck app from Citricos!
I think my three most memorable meals at WDW were and this is not that helpful since one is not an option and another you’ve already done:
Highway in the Sky Dine Around - I desperately wish they still did this, it was so much fun…it wasn’t even the food that was so memorable, just the experience as a whole
Space 220 - the food was absolutely delicious and the experience was fun - I think what makes it so memorable was that my mom still talks about what an amazing experience it was. She loved every minute of it and still declares it the best meal she’s had at WDW
Storybook Dining at Artist Point - I surprise even myself by putting this on the list - because at the end of the day it is a character meal. The vibe and the character interactions were just top notch for us. Plus, I still think about that Mushroom Bisque ALL THE TIME.
DS loved the applesauce, DH and I loved the food and drink. The tables can fill up fast-ish with people just looking for shade which is only irritating when carrying a tray of drinks trying to find a spot.
Adding to the discussion, I love Cosmic Rays. That had a great selection, including healthier options. We also love visiting Sunny and hearing a song or two.
I’d consider keeping Citricos since you haven’t done it yet. We went with littles and although the waiter was very proper, he was good with the kids and kept it from being too hoity toity. And the salads and desserts were killer.
You won’t regret that (DW had it). I had the house salad. It was amazing too. So was the truffle mac and cheese and the smoked cauliflower.
Entrees were good not great, but we spent so much time with DD(then 3) in the potty that it was hard to tell whether the distrupted meal made them less good or if they were actually slightly below the Topolino’s/Jiko level of quality.
