    Talking Help! Need a Resturaunt

    Hello Everyone!
    My boyfriend and I are going to DisneyWorld on tuesday for a week, its my first time going. We will be there for Valentines so I was wondering if anyone could suggest a nice place to eat thats not too pricey or too formal. We are both still "kids at heart", however we dont want to "kiddish".. if that at all makes sense. Anways its a surprise for him so I cant ask his opinion. Any suggestions would be great!! Thank you soo much!

    Well without knowing what you like to eat and what you consider "pricey," I'd recommend browsing the menus to see what suits you. http://www.allearsnet.com/menu/menus.htm
    The only restaurant that requires a dress code is V&A's.

    Some of my favorite places to eat are Le Cellier, Brown Derby, Restaurant Marrakesh, and 'Ohana. If you don't want kiddish, then you may want to avoid the character meals. If you are looking for romantic atmosphere, then I would avoid the buffet restaurants. I just don't find buffets to be romantic when you are fetching your own food.

    Welcome to the boards, Zak!

    You might try calling 407-wdw-dine and ask their suggestions and check availability. I don't know how busy the 'romantic' restaurants would be on valentines day.

    Are you looking to eat inside one of the theme parks (requiring admission), or at one of the resorts?

    California Grill, at the top of the Contemporary Resort, is very nice when you have a priority seating timed to catch Wishes! from the rooftop. Check AllEarsNet (link in Amanda's excellent post) to see if the price is within your budget.

    Tony's Town Square in the Magic Kingdom - inspired by Lady & the Tramp's romantic dinner, not too fussy.

    San Angel Inn in Mexico, Epcot - very dark & romantic, it's inside but it looks like you are dining outdoors by a river with a volcano in the distance. Food is good but not Epcot's best, but it's not pricey either.

    Brown Derby is the nicest, most adult choice in Disney-MGM Studios, but for fun, Sci Fi Dine-in Theater is like eating in a 50's drive-in. Food is of the burgers, shakes, & fries style, and the movie clips are definite B-flicks, but it's dark and starry skies even at noon. They might even let you have the back seat.

    Amanda made some really good suggestions too. 'Ohana at the Polynesian is nice, and the grounds of the resort are beautiful for an after-dinner walk and watching the fireworks and the Electrical Water Pagent from the beach.

    When you do decide, be sure to make a Priority Seating reservation so you don't have to wait a long time for a table.

    Hope this helps!

    I agree 'Ohana would be a great place.

    The Flying Fish on the Boardwalk is a personal favorite, as is Artist Pointe in Wilderness Lodge, California Grill, and the Coral Reef in Epcot
