I doubt we will just because we’ve been every year together for the past 5 years or so, sometimes twice. But we love it! 

Definitely book a nice romantic dinner in Epcot for one night. We like the French restaurant. Also, if you take the buses to the Contemporary, they have a restaurant called the California Grill which is to die for and has beautiful views of Magic Kingdom. I’m sure he knows this since he’s been so much, but make reservations well in advance. 

You might like to go to the spa at Saratoga Springs. 🙂 I know I do. 

Where are you staying?

Are you going to Disney World or Disneyland?  I’ve only been to Disney World and loved it 🙂  I’ve only been once and that was four years ago with my family.  Epcot as my favorite and eating at Japan — I think it was — with the hibachi grills and the food prepared in front of you was so much fun!  I think Epcot in general is just amazing!  We also ate at the big aquarium restaurant, sorry, can’t remember the name and it was pretty amazing to see the sharks and sealife swimming around along the entire wall while we ate.  I would definitely recommend you stay at one of the resorts at DW because you can just hop on the many buses they have running to go anywhere and never have to worry about parking.  Also make sure you check out the shopping district they have for Ghiradelli chocolate, Rainforest Cafe and I do believe they have a Blues Brothers location too.

Ooh, sounds fun! I’ve always wanted to stay there, but FMIL tends to send us to Old Key West and Saratoga more. I love them, but some days I want to explore the other resorts. I would love to see Animal Kingdom Villas, too. 

Have fun!

We are also doing a Disney World / Orlando honeymoon.

 

Here is some information posted on about.com

Disney World provides a perfect backdrop for romance and these romance-inspired activities:

  • You’ll be humming Some Enchanted Evening when you and your special someone board an antique carriage at Pioneer Hall for a romantic ride through the scenic landscape of Disney’s rustic Fort Wilderness Resort. Or choose a relaxing old-fashioned carriage ride departing Boatwright’s Dining Hall at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Both 30-minute excursions are available nightly from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Call 407-WDW-PLAY for reservations.

     

  • It takes two to enjoy the spa-tacular couples room at the Grand Floridian Spa & Health Club, located in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. What could be more sensual than enjoying specialized spa teatments, including massages and facials, with the one you love. For more information or reservations, call 407-824-2332.

     

  • The popular television show The Love Boat was nothing like Disney’s Grand 1. The elegant 52-foot yacht offers couples romantic evening cruises along Seven Seas Lagoon for a stunning once-in-a-lifetime view of “Wishes” fireworks raining on the Magic Kingdom. Cruises begin at just under $520/hour, including captain and private deck hand. Private butler service and gourmet meals are also available. Reservations up to 90 days in advance may be made by calling 407-824-2682.

    Also, at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Marina, a 1930s-style 26-foot mahogany runabout (aptly named the Breathless II) is available for private rental — half-hour cruises are $105 or for $325 couples can take an hour-long Fireworks Cruise for a one-of-a-kind view of Epcot’s “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.” Reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.

     

  • Couples can seek intimacy and romance in deluxe accommodations at Disney’s most romantic resorts — from the romance of an African lodge at Animal Kingdom Lodge (Photos) to the Victorian splendor of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (Photos). Call 407-W-DISNEY for reservations.

     

  • Perhaps one of the most romantic dining opportunities at Walt Disney World Resort is a table for two at Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, a AAA Five-Diamond Award winning restaurant. The intimate adult-only setting features soft harp music to set the mood for the finest cuisine served on Royal Doulton china. Ladies even receive a long-stemmed red rose.

    The California Grill atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers a breathtaking view, allowing couples to catch a Florida sunset over the Magic Kingdom them park. The restaurant’s excellent cuisine and award-winning selection of California wines set the stage for a perfect evening.

    Call 407-WDW-DINE for reservations or more information.

     

  • Couples are nature lovers might enjoy a horseback ride through one of the backwoods trails at Walt Disney World Resort. Wrangler-led tours depart Trail Blaze Corral in Disney’w Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground several times daily. Reservations may be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.

     

  • Couples don’t need the help of a fairy godmother to find the perfect setting for a romantic fairy tale wedding because fairy tales come true at Walt Disney World Resort. Even if you’re a couple that has been married for years and wish to renew your vows, a Disney vacation provides the perfect backdrop to celebrate this family milestone. For more information call 321-939-4623 or visit http://www.DisneyWeddings.com.

    If you’re tying the knot back home, why not arrange a Fairy Tale Honeymoon by calling 321-939-4623 or visiting http://www.DisneyHoneymoons.com.

Finally, couples considering vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort might consider purchasing the guide book, Walt Disney World for Couples: With or Without Kids. The authors, Rick and Gayle Perlmutter, are not shy about sharing intimate settings and relating feel-good moments that can stoke the romantic fires, yet they do not let their feelings get in the way of honest-to-goodness, down-to-earth, what-you-need-to-know information.

We are looking for a good steak house in Orlando for our honeymoon.  Does anyone have any recommendations? 

We were thinking about Charleys, Vitos Chop House, Texas Cattle Company, Shulas?  Anyone know if any of these are good or bad?

@caszos  – I don’t eat meat, but we go with FFIL a lot and he loves steak. Shula’s is his favorite, I believe.

I’ve heard Yachtsman Steak House is great and it’s located at Disney at the Yacht Club resort I think.

Why don’t you try the Keys to the Kingdom tour? Or one of the other behind-the-park tours? It’s great for someone who has been there a million times, and someone who hasn’t. They are fun, and really special! I think if you have Disney Visa card, you can get a discount on the tickets too.

Here’s some more info: http://allears.net/btp/tours.htm

If you do the California Grill (which I love), you can schedule it towards the end of the night when the fireworks are going on at the Magic Kingdom, and they tap in the sound from the park. It’s great. Also, they do a similar thing at the Ohana dinner at the Polynesian which is an INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF FOOD but totally awesome! I had a drink in a pinapple and it quite lovely.

There’s also Narcossi’s at the Grand Floridian. That one is pricey but the atmosphere is great and the food is to die for. After wards you could go sit on the beach at the Grand Floridan.

At the Yacht Club (connected to the Beach Club), the Yachtsman Steakhouse is really nice too.

I also love to eat at the Rose & Crown during the Illuminations show in Epcot. Make a reservation for 830, sit outside, and enjoy your dinner and the show! Oh, and if you want to do something awesome, they also do boat rentals during some of the firework shows and you can have the best seat in the house. We did this once for Illuminations and the boat captain knew so much awesome stuff about the parks.

Hope this helps! I love allears.net for any Disney info! So up-to-date!

You guys all have such great tips!   I just printed out the menu for Shulas and it looks great. 

I know my FI would want to splurge on their 50 ounce porterhouse for $85!!

lilmissxas – We have a free 1 day ticket to disney.  Should we go to Magic Kingdom or Epcot?  My FI has been to neither and I used to go all the time but as a kid.  We also could do Animal Kingdom but not sure if its worth it. 

We actually aren’t staying at Disney but we are trying to get as many “freebies” as we can.  One day I think we are going to do a couples massage at the Grand Floridian and then since we are paying customers at the spa we can use their pool area and spa ammenities all day. 

I would love to find similar activities for the Wilderness Lodge, the Polynesian Resort, and the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Any suggestions?
