Top Ten Romantic Things to do in Disney World (5 of 10)

Top Ten Things to do in Disney World 

5.) Signature Dining

Where : There are many Disney Restaurants that are considered "signature dining". A quick list of some of them are...

Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge
Bistro De Paris at EPCOT (France pavilion)
California Grill at The Contemporary 
Citricos at the Grand Floridian 
Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom
JIKO at the Animal Kingdom Lodge
Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club
Victoria and Alberts at The Grand Floridian
 *Both Citricos and Victoria and Albert's offer special dining options. You can sit at The Chef's table at Victoria and Alberts, or The Chef's Domain at Citricos

These are only some of the signature dining restaurants that WDW offers. For a complete list you can go to the Disney Dining website.

How : You can make reservations for any of these restaurants by calling 407- WDW-DINE

Why : As I've said before, Adam and I are foodies. We love all things food and enjoy the idea of dining out being an experience. We always try and fit in atleast one signature dining restaurant. Last year we ate at JIKO and it was literally AMAZING! The service, the atmosphere, and the food were all fantastic. This year we're going to be eating at Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club. 

I find these to be very romantic because they all are unique little retreats from the hustle and bustle of the parks. Some of them can be so fancy that I feel I'm not classy enough to be there..hahaha! The staff treat you like royalty and I am always impressed by that. I highly recommend taking the time out of the parks to get dressed up and enjoy that experience with your significant other. You will not regret it!

If you've eaten at any of the Signature Dining Restaurants I'd love to hear what you though and what your experience was like! So please leave a comment about it! :)

Top Ten Romantic Things to do in Disney World (4 of 10)

Top Ten Romantic Things to do in Disney World

4.) World Showcase at Night

Where : World Showcase is located at EPCOT. 


How : Take any Disney transportation whether, bus, monorail, or boat. 

Why : Ok I know that this seems like a no brainer but I am going to get alittle specific. I'm going to say that World Showcase at night, DURING food and wine festival is one of the most romantic things Adam and I have experienced in WDW. Between the amazing back drop of the countries, the food, wine, and occasional "eat to the beat" concerts, it can make for one amazing night!

If you're a lover of all things food, and you appreciate being able to experience new flavors of food and drink, then the Food and Wine Festival is something you must put on your "to-do" list. Adam was never into trying new foods, he was a steak and potatoes kind of guy. I, however, will try anything once and I find it a thrill to try new ethnic cuisines. I rubbed off on him in the long run and now he is a foodie like me!

World Showcase has such detail in each country that you want to be able to take your time and really enjoy what each pavilion has to offer. Instead of making an ADR at a sit down restaurant, why not head over to EPCOT right as the sun is setting and take your time along world showcase while sampling foods from around the world? There is nothing more romantic than walking hand in hand with a glass of Italian fine wine. Then end the night with bellies full, maybe even slightly buzzed, and Illuminations fireworks!

Doesn't get much better than that!
