    Where’s the best fine dining restaurant for mostly adults—great wine selection, etc?

    Hi there, Libby, and welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you've asked me about fine dining restaurants with a great wine selection! Like our favorite enchanted candelabra Lumiere says, "It's fine dining we suggest!" Be my guest as we explore some of Walt Disney World Resort's most celebration-worthy restaurants.

    From the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks to Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to Disney Springs, there are so many noteworthy restaurants to consider. While it's difficult to pick a favorite, three of my recommendations are California Grill, Sanaa, and Victoria & Albert's. Each offers incredible ambiance, delicious food, and an impressive wine selection. Libby, it's also worth noting that each of these restaurants are located within Disney Resort Hotels, so you won't need a theme park ticket to access them.

    • California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort: I recently had the opportunity to dine here when celebrating with friends, and we loved every minute of the experience. Situated at the top of Disney's Contemporary Resort, you'll be treated to picturesque views of Magic Kingdom Park, and if you're dining during the Happily Ever After Fireworks Show, you'll view it from a whole new perspective! California Grill offers a 3-course prix-fixe menu, with selections like Oak-Fired Filet of Beef and Florida Black Grouper. The wine selection is great, featuring many wines from both California and abroad.
    • Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village: This African- and Indian-inspired restaurant is situated alongside the Sunset Savanna at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. My favorite way to start the meal is the Indian-style Bread Service with nine accompaniments, from sambal to chutney. The Lamb Kefta appetizer is a dream, along with all of the entrees like Zanzibari Curries and Pork Shank. Many guests have praised Sanaa for the fantastic wine offerings. While dining, you'll see giraffes, zebras, and other exotic wildlife right outside the restaurant windows!
    • Victoria & Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: Perhaps the most opulent and highest-awarded culinary experience at Walt Disney World Resort, Victoria & Albert's is renowned for unequaled service and inventive creations. Inspired by Queen Victoria's Jubilee Celebration, this restaurant immerses you in Victorian-themed elegance. There are three options for enjoying the award-winning wine list and thoughtful culinary options: The Dining Room, Queen Victoria's Room, and The Chef's Table. Each offers an unforgettable, unique experience. 
    Libby, Disney Parks Blog is a great way to learn more about the dining options at Walt Disney World Resort, and I found a great article about some of Disney's most accomplished chefs. If you're visiting in the fall, check out the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which is a culinary celebration not to be missed!

    Bon appetit!
