    We are visiting Aug., staying at the Yacht Club. My parents are going and have volunteered to watch our sons so that my husband and I can enjoy a romantic dinner! Any suggestions for a couple on the dining plan? We don't get this opportunity very often!

    Hi Jessica,

    Lucky you!  Traveling with your parents is a great option.  They'll get to enjoy seeing their grandchildren experience Disney World, and you and your husband get some alone time.

    I have several suggestions for a great, romantic meal:
    • Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge - in my opinion, this is the BEST restaurant in all of Walt Disney World, and if you've never been to the Animal Kingdom Lodge, you're in for a real treat.  It is beautiful.
    • California Grill at the Contemporary - another amazing meal.  If you happen to like sushi, order it here.  My husband and I got the sushi there, and I still use it as my standard almost every where I go.  There are many other options on the menu, so I recommend it even if raw fish is NOT your thing.  The great thing about this restaurant (besides the food) is that they pipe in the music from Wishes and dim the lights so you can enjoy the fireworks.  If you aren't seated by the window, simply stroll out to the observation deck and enjoy the view.
    • Flying Fish Cafe on the Boardwalk - if you want to stay close to "home", the food here is excellent.  Afterwards, take a stroll around the Boardwalk, enjoy the fireworks from Illuminations and head over to Jellyrolls to sing along with the dueling pianos and enjoy a drink or two.
    All of these restaurants require 2 table service credits per person.  If you are looking to only spend one credit, you may want to consider heading over to Epcot.  Coral Reef, Le Cellier and Les Chefs de France are all great restaurants where you can enjoy a great meal.  Afterwards, stroll around the World Showcase before enjoying Illuminations.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
