It seems that there are two very different opinions when it comes to the possibility of ROMANCE at Walt Disney World. Either people find SO MUCH romance in the air at Disney that they end up booking their honeymoon and milestone anniversary trips there OR they think of it as a place “mainly for the kids” and romance is not about the hubba hubba. I think it’s somewhere in the middle, but I’ve DEFINITELY found some great spots for romance at Walt Disney World.
Note: It is POSSIBLE that some of these have a dress code you will need to pack head for. At these restaurants, Men must wear khakis, slacks or dress shorts and collared shirts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Sport coats are optional. Women must wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses, or dress shorts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Tank tops, flip-flops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut-offs, torn clothing, and t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics are not permitted.
5. Monsieur Paul (France Pavillion, Epcot)
If you think Chefs de France is fancy just wait until you go upstairs to the newly redecorated Monsieur Paul for some delicious French food and a breathtaking view of Epcot. The food is quite similar to the restaurant below, but the ambiance is a bit more refined and definitely less “child friendly”. If you’re looking for a little ooh la la, Monsieur Paul’s has it. *DRESS CODE ENFORCED
4. Le Cellier Steakhouse (Canada Pavillion, Epcot)
For years Le Cellier has been a “hot reservation” to try to get due to its cozy size. As you descend down into the wine cellar of a chateau you are magically transported to the Fairmont Château Laurier hotel in Ottawa Canada and you’ll know you’re in for a night of romance. The wine is fantastic, the steak and seafood divine. You provide excellent company and you’re in for a dinner you will never forget. *NO DRESS CODE
3. Tutto Italia Ristorante (Italy Pavillion, Epcot)
Is there something cuter than re-enacting the noodle scene from Lady & the Tramp with the one you love?! You’ll amazing Italian food low lights and good wine to set the mood! Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to wish that you will be back again before settling into the intimate booths of Tutto and enjoying a peaceful evening. *NO DRESS CODE
2. San Angel (Mexico Pavillion, Epcot)
Inside of the great ruins of the Mayan ruins of the Mexico Pavillion at Epcot there lies a hidden treasure, San Angel Inn Restaurante. The food is delicious, but it’s definitely the atmosphere that screams romance at San Angel. Inside the dark (and always wonderfully airconditioned) temple, it is always “almost dusk” and the stars have already made an appearance. You’ll be transported with your loved one by the Latin music, tables for two, and candlelit tables. *NO DRESS CODE
1. Fireworks and a meal the California Grill (Contemporary Resort)
You and your love will adore both the view and the food at California Grill. Get the Cheese Plate! It’s divine. The Celebration at the Top add on, however, has to be THE MOST romantic experience in Walt Disney World in my opinion. Great wine, good food, and one seriously fabulous view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks = mega smooch potential! It’s definitely a reservation you’ll have to make early (once fireworks return post-COVID), but it’s worth it. They do pipe in the music so you can hear the music along with your fireworks. Seriously its FABULOUS! *DRESS CODE ENFORCED
So grab the one you love and make your reservations the moment you can for these great dining opportunities. Remember, it’s YOUR vacation too! Live it up!
Have a MAGICAL time!
