Cinderella’s famous castle, spectacular firework displays and that heart-warming feeling you can only get at Walt Disney World. These are just a few of the things that make this one of the most romantic places in the world. If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a nice meal with your loved one, be inspired by our top pick of romantic Walt Disney World restaurants…
1. Victoria & Albert’s
If you’re celebrating a special occasion (or just want to treat yourself!) Victoria & Albert’s is the place to go. Indulge in an evening of fine dining, where you can enjoy up to 13 courses if you wish! The menu is made up of the freshest ingredients sourced from all over the world, and guests can enjoy world-class culinary creations like Iberico ham with sherry vinaigrette, seared tuna with mango and avocado or beef tenderloin, followed by a delicious chocolate orange mousse or Hawaiian Kona chocolate soufflé for dessert. The service is impeccable, the décor grand, and the atmosphere incredibly romantic thanks to a live harpist. If that didn’t sound impressive enough, the stunning restaurant has won the AAA Five Diamond Award every year since 2000!
Where? Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
2. California Grill
Can you think of a better way to end a romantic meal than by watching a dazzling firework show? The California Grill boasts great views of the Seven Seas Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom, giving you the perfect view of their night-time firework display. Watch in awe as the night sky is filled with bursts of colour, from the restaurant’s 15th-floor observation deck. The show's music is even played through the speakers so you won’t miss any of the action. Savour the mouth-watering Californian cooking, with dishes like goat cheese ravioli, oak-fired filet of beef, seared scallops and sashimi. To accompany your meal, there’s a selection of more than 300 wines to choose from!
Where? Disney’s Contemporary Resort
3. Cinderella’s Royal Table
This is the perfect dining experience for the ultimate Disney fan, that actually lets you dine inside Cinderella’s iconic castle! The dreamy setting will make you feel as though you’ve stepped right into a Disney movie, as you’re greeted by your favourite princesses. Ascend the spiral staircase before entering the grand banquet hall, where you’ll be surrounded by beautiful stained-glass windows, stone archways and medieval flags. The royal feast includes dishes like pan-seared chicken served over creamy goat cheese polenta, pork tenderloin and the Chef’s fish of the day. What we really like about this menu though is the desserts! We’d recommend the ‘Clock Strikes Twelve’- a rich dark chocolate mousse drizzled with raspberry coulis. This restaurant is extremely popular, so make sure you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Where? The Magic Kingdom- Fantasyland
After opening last year, STK became an instant hit at Disney Springs and it’s easy to see why- succulent steak, delicious desserts and the chic décor make for the perfect dining experience. This modern steakhouse has a creative menu comprising hearty steaks with your choice of sauce, fresh seafood and tasty side dishes. We love the miniature Lil’ BRGs, made with wagyu beef and special sauce sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. The deep purple décor, floral arrangements and beautiful rooftop terrace make STK picture perfect, while the in-house DJ guarantees a great night!
Where? Disney Springs
5. Coral Reef Restaurant
If you’re looking for something a bit different, the Coral Reef restaurant is a great place to try. The intimate dining area is surrounded by a living coral reef, that’s home to more than 4,000 beautiful sea creatures! The panoramic windows give you an amazing view of ‘The Seas with Nemo & Friends’ while you dine. Admire the 85-species of tropical fish, as well as sharks, sea turtles and rays that call this place home. The Seas holds enough water to fill 54 Olympic-sized swimming pools! Sounds impressive, right?
The seafood cuisine includes dishes like creamy lobster soup and crab-spinach fondue to start, followed by seafood scampi and seared Mahi Mahi for the main course. There’s also pork shank, oven-roasted chicken and steak on the menu, so don’t worry if you’re not a fan of seafood. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the chocolate wave or the turtle cheesecake with caramel and Chantilly cream.
Where? Epcot- Future World
6. Be Our Guest
This amazing restaurant offers an equally beautiful setting to Cinderella’s Royal Table, but instead takes place in the Beast’s enchanted castle. Split into 3 royal rooms, each area is designed to immerse diners into the mystery and romance of the classic Beauty and the Beast tale. The Grand Ballroom has a high domed ceiling complete with baroque detailing and glittering chandeliers, The West Wing is the Beast’s mysterious lair and home to the enchanted rose, while The Castle Gallery is inspired by Belle and the Beast dancing together.
Whichever room you choose to dine in, the menu will be the same. Enjoy dishes like grilled strip steak with garlic-herb butter, sautéed shrimp and scallops, pan-seared chicken breast with wild rice or layered ratatouille. Tasty treats for afterwards include a rich triple chocolate cupcake, a lemon-raspberry cream puff filled with custard and of course- the famous “grey stuff”.
Where? Magic Kingdom- Fantasyland
