    Thanks for all your advice thus far! What are your top 3 sit down restaurants for 2 young married couples? Boys don't think we need advanced dinner reservations, so we'll just make a few and surprise them! Thanks again! Love you guys!

    Silly boys. Good thing they have you ladies around to set them straight.  ;)

    This is really an easy question for me.  I have four children, you see, and I'm lucky to get one date night with my husband when we visit WDW.  An adults only trip is so far out of reach for us that I'll have to live vicariously through you.  If I could choose my top three restaurants in which to enjoy a meal with my husband and another couple, I'd choose:

    - Jiko.  This would definitely be my first choice.  The food is absolutely fabulous as is the service.  The atmosphere is sophisticated and offers one of the few places on property where children are scarce.  That's not to say that children are prohibited, but in my experience, children dining at Jiko have been extremely well-behaved and practically unnoticable.  Furthermore, the wine list at Jiko is reason enough to enjoy dinner there; it is quite unique and very impressive.

    - Artist Point.  The Pacific Northwest comes to life inside the walls of this Signature dining location.  The meals are delicious, the service is impeccable, and the location is gorgeous.  Need I say more?

    - Whispering Canyon Cafe.  While not nearly as reserved as the first two locations I mentioned (we're talkin'' a whole new ballgame my friend), you just can't do Disney dining without tossing in some fun here and there.  Whispering Canyon would be my top fun choice because both my husband and I thoroughly enjoy the all-you-care-to-eat skillet as well as the uproarious antics that go on in the dining room.  Go.  The guys will thank you.

    And when you can actually get into these popular restaurants (because you thought ahead and made reservations), be sure to innocently remind your husbands that the spa at the Grand Floridian is highly recommended.  Come to think of it, I think they may even have a wife appreciation package available...

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
