    Red face Best Romantic Places?

    Well I am starting to try and narrow down dining for my honeymoon and am wondering what everyone thinks are the best romantic places. We will have 2 nights only, but since we live nearby, we'll need places for anniversaries and just celebrations, and I'm curious to see who votes for what!

    I randomly added options. If something is not on the list, please list it and I can add it!

    And the best part is, you'll never run out of wishes.

    Me and the wife ate at most of these on our honeymoon, and I voted for the ones that I thought were the most romantic and conducive to adults and, in particular, to couples. if I had to rank the ones I voted for, with one being the most romantic and four being the least, here's how I'd do it:

    1. Victoria & Albert's. definitely the only one specifically geared towards honeymoons and couples.
    2. Hollywood Brown Derby. the atmosphere here is very sophisticated, especially for a theme park restaurant.
    3. Artist Point. just the fact that it has a dress code is enough to keep the "rabble-rousing" crowd out. plus, my wife and I really enjoyed the outdoorsy, Pacific Northwest decor. unfortunately, the food wasn't amazing. it was good, but nothing to write home about.
    4. Coral Reef. my wife is a marine biologist and we got a seat right next to the tank. they have some superb specialty drinks, if you're into that sort of thing. however, like Artist Point, I have definitely had better seafood. but we live on the coast, so that wasn't a big surprise.

    I don't know if I'm remembering correctly, but I think all of these places give you personalized menus that you can take home with you.

    I'm sure that, no matter which places you pick, you will have a blast. be sure to wear your honeymoon pins in the parks!

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    Well, of the choices you posted I haven't been to V&A's so I can't consider that one.

    As for the above poster's comments, I would have agreed with them a few years ago, but things have changed since the DDP went into effect. There are a lot more families in every sit down dining location, so they're not as "cozy" as they used to be. We found this out last year when we went to Artist's Point for our anniversary dinner. Lots of families with loud, unruly kids running around. It wasn't as we remembered AP to be like. BTW, we're not kids haters (we have 2 of our own) we just don't care for kids with no manners.

    I would suggest that you consider the Bistro de Paris at France in the World Showcase in Epcot. We went there a few years ago for our anniversary and found it to be a wonderful experience. The menu is located here:

    i was at Coral Reef when I was little, but other than that I don't remember it, so maybe that's an option!

    Artist Point got my vote. I have not eaten at all of the above options, but of the ones i have eaten at, Artist Point has the best food, service, and atmosphere. Love it!!!
    It's a good thing!

    I want to go to Artist point but that will be a "non-disney" trip.

    Right now our reservations for our honeymoon are at Citrocose and Coral Reef since we only have 2 nights!

    Coral Reef is a very nice place for dinner.

    My wife and i had our anniversary dinner at Artists point, which i enjoyed immesnely.

    Victoria and Alberts is beyond comapre but very expensive.

    the Sit down at France in EPCOT is great.

    In my opinion, and based on the recent experience I had there, I think standing out on the observation desk at the California Grill during Wishes is one of the most romantic things a resturant could offer, I have not experienced the other resturants though

    Although we are huge Jiko fans, I voted for V&A simply because it must be the most romantic restaurant on property. And that's based on what I've read...haven't been there yet, but hoping this will be the year to try it.

    We love Jiko though. Always go for our anniversary. Why? The food and service is amazing. The wine list is tremendous and the CMs are very knowledgable. Additionally, we've found that most of the diners there are couples and a few families with well-behaved children. It's always a special time.

    I'd say California Grill, mainly because of the view.

    When I got married at Disney, as part of our package, we had dinner at V&A. Very, very, very romantic. Then, for our reception, we ate at the California Grill. For romance, definitely V&A. A lot warmer atmosphere for romance. Of course, the view at the CG is pretty exceptional.

    I went to WDW last October for my honeymoon and I have to say Victoria & Albert's was the highlight! It's really romantic and an experience you will never forget. Just PLAN that it wil be expensive and find a way to rationalize the money ("this is what Aunt Suzy's and Cousin Jane's wedding gift checks are going towards..."). Try to go to the Spirit of Aloha, too. They really make the honeymooners feel special - then make sure you and your honey take a romantic walk on the beach at the Polynesian. There's a great hammock there and if you time it right you can see the Electrical Water Pageant.
    It was all started by a mouse!
