    I am heading to Disney World with my husband, and it will be his very first time. I want to surprise him with a few dining experiences or restaurants. I think he is expecting funnel cakes and hot dogs. What are your top 5 Dining Recommendations for us?

    Hi Jill:

    Disney World has a number of amazing restaurants that serve all different types of food, from traditional "theme park fare" like burgers and dogs, to gourmet meals, to just about everything in between.  I'm not sure if you are going with any children, but here are five great recommendations for you and your husband:
    • California Grill atop the Contemporary Resort. California Grill features delicious California Fusion cooking and spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom and the Wishes fireworks show.
    • Le Cellier, a tasty steakhouse at Epcot's Canada Pavilion
    • Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge, which serves dishes influenced by African, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisine
    • Coral Reef, a wonderful and fun experience where you can dine in front of stunning underwater views
    • Raglan Road, a modern twist on traditional Irish pub food


    Enjoy your vacation.
