FI and I are HUGE Disney lovers! We’ve vacationed in Disney World over a dozen times together in the last 5 years. . . for our honeymoon, we opted to go to Disneyland since I’ve never been there!
Here are my dining recommendations:
Epcot: Mexico (San Angel Inn) is, by far, my favorite. I love the atmosphere and ambiance. . . and the food is to die for. I also really love Via Napoli in Italy. . . they have wood burning ovens and make pizza right there with FRESH ingredients – SO good!
Magic Kingdom: Liberty Tree Tavern is just like Thanksgiving. . . they give you a TON of food served family style and everything is absolutely delicious. If you like Italian, I’d also suggest Tony’s (the restaurant from Lady and the Tramp). And if you like character dining – there’s nothing better than Cinderella’s Royal Table inside the castle.
Hollywood Studios: Another great italian restaurant is Mama Melrose. If you’re ok with buffets, I suggest Hollywood and Vine – LOTS of choices and everything, literally everything, is amazing!
I also highly suggest California Grill at the Contemporary. It overlooks the Magic Kingdom and as long as you dine there you can go up to their balcony to watch the fireworks from there. The food is OUTSTANDING. Seriously, I’ve had some of my BEST meals there.

FI & I both worked at Disney world for an international program one summer! It really is an amazing place! Make sure you let people know it’s your honeymoon; you’ll get pins to wear which will let make you an easy target for “magical moments” and special treatment 🙂 I strongly suggest booking a night at one of the restaurants in Epcot, some are better than others and most require reservations! There is also great food in Downtown Disney & I definitely recommend seeing the Cirque du Soleil “La Nouba”.

We just honeymooned there in February! Get the “happily ever after” buttons and wear them everywhere – occasionally it got us free dessert or bumped up in line, but it was also nice to get so many congratulations and smiles from everyone! Our favorite meals this trip were Teppan Edo in EPCOT (Hibachi) and Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge (African buffet). Have a blast!

I def suggest California Grill for dinner as well duriing Wishes. Make a reservation ahead of time and make sure to tell them you’re on your honeymoon, they’ll priority seat you by the window!!! Be our Guest has just opened in Magic Kingdom and is reallllly good, the ambiance is much like Tony’s so its less formal, but overall a great place to go, especially if you love Beauty and the Beast! If you love seafood however, go to downtown disney and eat at Fulton’s Crab Shack ooooh so good. Also Portobella’s in DT Disney is delicious as well! I love disney world and my FI just never got into it so I could never convince him to do a honeymoon there, but so jealous that you are!!!

@mmm_jacklyn: we found Be Our Guest to be pretty “meh”, but Fulton’s was so good!

I honeymooned there 30 years ago. My daughter is honeymooning partly in Disney Land in 2 months. She also worked at Disneyworld for a time. On my honeymoon they upgraded our Contemporary hotel room from a parking lot view to a gorgeous room right on the lagoon, with a patio! My daughter tells me that they go over and above for honeymooning couples, so wear those pins/ears! Have a great time!

@futuremrsbc: Victoria and Albert’s is definitely worth the price. My fiance took me there right before he proposed. It was the best meal I’ve ever had in my entire life.
We’re planning on honeymooning in Disneyworld! We stayed at Coronado Springs for our proposal trip and loved it but may stay somewhere else for our honeymoon though just to switch it up.

Seconding @futuremrsslp, Victoria and Albert’s is absoultely worth every penny. My fiance also took me there, a few months before he proposed. I’m not even a huge Disney fan, but that was by far the best meal I’ve ever had. Get the wine pairing if you like wine even a bit. Be wary though, they are EXTREMELY generous with their wine portions. Pace yourself and don’t feel like you have to keep up with the rate they bring them out at 😉

I havent been to Disney world since I was about 11 (but I reeeeeeally want to go back!)
anyway we just had our honeymoon and we spent a day at hong kong Disneyland, and I’m SO glad we did! Disney sure know how to make people feel special. just tell them it’s your honeymoon and let them do the rest! we put it on the comments section of our booking form for the hotel and they had badges/pins ready for us and a card in our (upgraded) room, and we had so many great moments in the park with our honeymoon badges on!
the cutest thing was when one of the hotel staff made us mickey mouse wedding rings out of pipecleaners!
