    I make my 180 day advance reservations the day before Thanksgiving this year, and only know I want to dine at the Be Our Guest resteraunt. Any other suggestions? Will only be my boyfriend and I (both 21) and we have the deluxe dining plan for an 8 day trip

    Hi Meghan! Eight days at Walt Disney World plus the Deluxe Dining Plan equals lots of romantic gourmet meals for you and your boyfriend! What an amazing vacation you're going to have!

    Be Our Guest is a great restaurant that's extremely popular, so definitely make that dining reservation first.  Dinner at 'Ohana is another fun and popular option that requires reservations well in advance. 

    If you and your boyfriend enjoy upscale fine dining with gourmet food, two of my favorite Signature restaurants are Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge and Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you want to meet Mickey Mouse and friends, have breakfast at Chef Mickey's one morning before you're planning to visit the Magic Kingdom.  You can't go wrong with a buffet that includes breakfast pizza, rice krispie treats, and the Big Cheese himself! Another great breakfast option near the Magic Kingdom is the Kona Cafe, where you just must try the delicious Tonga Toast!

    For a rollicking good time, spend an evening at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. This country-western dinner show is hilarious, and the fried chicken and ribs are tasty and filling. (Unlimited beer, wine and sangria are included too!)

    For a fun lunch in Hollywood Studios, visit the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater where you sit in cars at a drive-in and watch campy old movies while you enjoy yummy milkshakes, sandwiches, and burgers. In Epcot, the pizza at Via Napoli is scrumptious, and the buffet at Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom offers lots of unique and tasty African-inspired items.

    If you want to see Fantasmic during your visit, booking the Fantasmic Dinner Package is a great way to cut your wait time for the popular nighttime show at Hollywood Studios.

    If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to visit me again here at the Moms Panel!
