    My husband and I are going down to WDW in April. I want to go to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, Spirit of Aloha, Cinderella's Round Table, and Le Cellier Steakhouse for dinner. Where else would you suggest? I have not been down since 1999.

    You've picked some terrific dining experiences. I think what's missing from this trip is an extra-special adults-only dining experience. The ultimate in dining at WDW is Victoria & Alberts at the Grand Floridian. This restaurant, a venue only for guests ages 10 and up, consistently ranks as one of the best restaurants in the entire state of Florida. The small dining room allows guests to have very personal attention from the staff. The carefully crafted seven-course menu changes daily to capitalize on the freshest ingredients possible. There is live music provided by a violinist or harpist and the wine list is divine. Disney Mom Laura is on her way to WDW any minute now to celebrate at Victoria & Alberts ten wonderful years with her darling hubby. And with Laura you just know that there are tiaras and glass slippers in the mix!  I'm sure her night will be one to remember.

    If V&A seems over the top, there are many other signature dining restaurants at WDW that are all top-notch, offering gourmet food, impeccable service, delicious wines, and a relaxing atmosphere. Panelist Bret lists these restaurants HERE, as well as describing the dress code required. My personal favorite on this list is Artist Point in the Wilderness Lodge, but California Grill during the fireworks is a close second.

    For regular restaurants for adults, some of the best options are in the World Showcase at Epcot. I have never had a less than excellent meal at Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion. We've also had great experiences at Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion. See if you can get your hubby to belly dance for you ;-)
