    We will be at OKW during our 26th wedding anniversary on October 3rd. We do not have theme park tickets. Do you have a recommendation for a romantic dinner place outside of the parks? Thanks.

    Welcome to planDisney, Michael! Happy Anniversary to you and your happily-ever-after; what a true Prince Charming you are planning ahead for a romantic dinner to celebrate your anniversary! Michael, there are some amazing dining experiences outside of the Disney theme parks, so I'm going to make a few suggestions for you to consider, and hopefully one of them will be the perfect match - just like you found in your marriage!

    My first recommendation to consider is California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort. This restaurant is one of my favorites for romance because my husband and I dined here for the first time ever on our honeymoon in 2006. The food was delicious, and we had an opportunity to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from a private viewing area reserved for dining patrons. The spectacular views from atop the Contemporary are also breathtaking and set the perfect ambiance for romance! This past November I was able to experience this restaurant once again, and it was as magical and delicious as I remembered! What could be more romantic than watching Happily Ever After as you celebrate your own?

    Another top pick would be Topolino's Terrace in Disney's Riviera Resort, another rooftop restaurant that blends sophistication with the scenery of both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. From the rooftop, you will have spectacular views and maybe even catch some fireworks if you time your reservation correctly! As an added bonus, after dinner, you can hop aboard the Disney Skyliner and head over to Disney's BoardWalk to partake in some music and dancing at Atlantic Dance Hall or Jellyrolls piano bar or maybe some cocktails and conversation at AbracadaBar. The BoardWalk is such a romantic area at night, and strolling hand in hand with the one you love most after a delicious dinner sounds like the stuff that dreams are made of!

    And my final recommendation is Wine Bar George in Disney Springs. Here, the art of pairing wine and food is brought to life with a focus on small plates and shareable dishes. The ambiance of Disney Springs will also be brought to life even more as you and your partner can travel to and from your dinner reservation along the Sasagoula River onboard a water taxi from Disney's Old Key West Resort

    Michael, I hope one of these recommendations will become the destination for your anniversary celebration! No matter where you dine, the true magic of the moment is in the life you have built with your partner for the past 26 years - celebrate the love, laughter, and loyalty you have shown to one another as you have truly reached out and found your happily ever after!

    Happy Anniversary,
