    I am trying to plan a romantic/fun weekend with someone very special. Which deluxe hotel would you recommend, and which restaurants?


    Walt Disney World is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway! When we are celebrating our anniversary or traveling without our kids, my husband and I usually pick the Yacht Club or the Wilderness Lodge.

    The Wilderness Lodge is quiet and secluded but near Magic Kingdom and the signature restaurants of the Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian.

    We appreciate the relative seclusion of the Yacht Club, too, and its proximity to the Boardwalk and the back entrance to Epcot, where you can stroll around the country pavilions for an after dinner dessert or cocktail. The Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar in the Italy pavilion has a particularly cozy, romantic atmosphere.

    One of the best special occasion restaurants, the California Grill atop the Contemporary, is undergoing renovation until late summer 2013. If your visit is after that, I highly recommend it. But Artist Point at Wilderness Lodge is a virtual tie for our favorite. We celebrated my husband's most recent birthday there, and we're still talking about the signature buffalo dish.

    We've also had a memorable dinner at Narcoossee's and hear wonderful things about the Yachtsman Steakhouse, though we have only eaten in the adjacent bar. And the new Monsieur Paul at Epcot looks romantic and delicious.

    I hope that helps. Whatever you choose, I'm sure you will have a memorable time!
