    Recommend a dining experience

    Going to WDW in April (Easter fortnight) for our honeymoon and we want to book a Disney experience to remember. Can anyone recommend a special dining experience with a guideline on cost. Ideally the max budget is $250 for us both.
    Thanks

    I guess V&A for a honeymoon would be about the best.

    V&A's is a great idea. Of course Cinderella's Royal Table is always a suggestion... But one of the most romantic meals my bf and I had last time was Tony's on the corner of the porch. It was perfect for us.

    Going to look into V&A as another friend recommended it. We have also book Cinderellas round table for dinner on East Monday :-) and San Angel Inn to tie in with fireworks at Epcot. Thanks

    Re: Recommend a dining experience

    V&A is very nice and VERY expensive. My guess is it will run more than 250. Some very nice options romance wise are teh Aristis Point at Wilderness Lodge
    California Grill at the Comtemporary (easy to see fireworks at the castle if you time it right)
    The Wave at the Comtemporary
    Narcoosies at Grand Floridian (waterside seating, easy to see fireworks at the castle if you time it right
    Shulas at Swan and Dolphin (aslo very expensive)
    Coral Reef at EPCOT (sit close to the aquarium windows)
    Jiko at Animal Kingdom lodge
    Veri S&B LLC WHAFTFCOL

    Re: Recommend a dining experience

    i recommend all of the above...

    Coral Reef is awesome by the tank windows...
    California Grill right before or during the fireworks is amazing...
    And i think Artists Point is a great relaxing place for a a romantic meal...

    Re: Recommend a dining experience

    You clearly said $250 max...so if you do V&A's you have to do main dining room and no wine pairing. It's $125 a person that way but that does not include gratuity (18%).

    I haven't been there but bluezoo seems great---listening to the podcast on it makes me want to go! Or Le Cellier if you can get in!

    Lou's covered some great dining reviews on the show, always worth going back to listen over, must admit that recent review of BlueZoo left me wanting to eat there as soon as possible!

    Where was it that Lou and Beci had a meal that went on for like 7 hours or something???? Oooops...not that I'm saying it was because it was romantic!!

    Re: Recommend a dining experience

    Cinderella's Table would be good, but you need to book it and pay for it in advance.
    The Garden Grove is quiet, located at the Swan and dolphin...and it is a buffet, with different themed menus. We always hit it on the Meditteranean days, since we typically go on the weekend.

    Recently, we lucked out and got seated at a restaurant in the French area of Epcots World Showcase. We spent around $150.00 for dinner and dessert for myself, my husband, his mother, and our two kids this was just last month. The creme brle was delicious. If you look at disney's main website, check out the places to dine. I believe it was Chefs de la France. There is another small bistro that caters to couples, but I was not about to do that with a 5 and 9 year old. I think I have spent more on meals, snacks, tolls, and fuel in the last year than I did on our annual passes.

    Definitely recommend advance reservations for anything special.

    Not a big dinning experience, but special none the less... The Crystal Palace for breakfast. It's not expensive and makes a great start to your first day in the parks/Magic Kingdom.

    My husband and I did it for our Honeymoon last September and we're planning on doing it again. It was so simple, special and the staff were so attentive that we're thinking about making it a tradition to remember our Honeymoon.
    Kungaloosh!!
