    Going to be in Disney for Val. Day. Me & hubby want to go out to a nice dinner, no kids. What are your suggestions, looking at possibly Tutto Italia, The Wave, Citricos, Narcoossee's, Portobello. Want a nice atmosphere and of course good food.

    Hi, Stacie!  You've got some great choices that you are considering, any of which would be lovely to spend Valentine's day dinner enjoying!  

    If it were me, I'd skip Tutto Italia, and save that for a theme park day.  It seems as though the theme park restaurants lose a little bit of the romantic feeling just by virtue of the fact that they are in a theme park.  

    The Wave is a very good restaurant with delicious food, but the atmosphere is a bit busy.  The tables are a little closer together than at some of the other restaurants, and that can detract a bit from the romance.

    I love both Citricos and Narcoosee's, and I don't think you can go wrong at all with a trip to the Grand Floridian.  I even love walking around in the evening outside of the resort - it's just beautiful and romantic!

    Another of my favorite romantic restaurants is Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  The resort itself is rustic, but in February, you should be able to sit in a rocking chair by the fire either before or after your dinner, or stroll outside and admire the vision of the Pacific Northwest.  The food is amazing, so you shouldn't be disappointed there at all.

    My favorite meal anywhere at Walt Disney World at the moment is in another signature dining restaurant.  Jiko at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge has incredible food, and the atmosphere can be very romantic.  I also like that I can head out to the savannah and watch the animals, or listen to the African storytellers around a fire pit.  

    Wherever you choose, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Dinner!
