Top 5 Sit-Down Dinner Restaurants: The Rest of the Fam

OK I finally got the rest of the Goodys to sit down and talk a little Disney dining with me. Well, actually Myles stood and Nickie cut Owen’s hair but it was probably the best I was going to get. Maybe next time, I will just give my top 5 and if they want to add theirs they can just let me know.

For those that don’t remember, I already gave my Top 5 Sit-Down Disney Restaurants here and promised to get the top fives for the rest of the clan. Now, they do not go into as much detail as me on the reasons why but that’s probably because, well, I LOVE to pontificate. That’s what they used to call me in high school. Ol’ Pontificaty.

Alright so each of them is giving me their Top 5 and a quote explaining why each choice is a favorite. And as with the other post, each of the restaurant’s names links to their menu. OK Goodys…let’s go.

We will start with Nickie (aka Mommy).

When Nickie says "food" at Ohana, this is pretty much what she means.

Sanaa

So as you can see, we all have some different choices here but we also often agree. Ohana, for example, is on all our lists. And we also see mentions of some others such as Yachtsman, Flying Fish, Chef Mickey’s and Sanaa across a couple lists. And honestly, you really can’t go wrong with any of these.

So yeah, Food is good.
