@erinmarie0685:  Oh my gosh we went to WDW for our Honeymoon as well and we stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter!!! We had the most amazing time we were there for 10 days.

 

As for dining, that depends on how much you want to spend and what type of dining you’re looking for. We ate at Boma which is at he Animal Kingdom lodge and we loved it( Probably our favorite place)!!! It’s an african inspired buffet but they have something for every one if you’re picky or not up for trying some unique foods. I think we paid 35-40 a person.

 

We also ate the Sci-Fi cafe at Disney’s hollywood studios, this is themed restaurant and you get to sit in old 50s car while you dine! I think we spend around 100 for this, so it wasn’t too bad.

 

We also ate at Germany in Epcot!! ALso buffet style and worth ever penny!! And I think it was also aruond 30 a person.

 

I hope this helped and I hope you have a wonderful time!!

@erinmarie0685:  Victoria and Alberts is consistently ranked as the top restaurant in Orlando, not just at Disney.  Also, Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge gets top rankings as well.

Ditto on the Biergarten in Germany at Epcot.  Fun park dining!

Did you do the dining plan ??  Here are my favorites from our recent trip in July.. also when we got engaged πŸ™‚

My absolute favorite is a toss up between Coral Reef in Epcot, the Biergarten (Germany) in Epcot and Tutto Italia( Italy) .. seriously the best pizza I have ever had at Tutto.

Magic Kingdom — The Crystal Palace.  Be our Guest just opened and has gotten some good reviews.

MGM — We did the Fantasmic dinner package and ate at Hollywood & Vine.  HIGHLY suggest doing the package.  Fanstasmic is a MUST.  The Studio Catering Company is great for casual dining. 

There is also a wonderful food blog with lots of reviews and suggestions.  It is disneyfoodblog.com.

We are avid fans (8+ trips each) and will be more then happy to answer any questions that you may have.  Feel free to inbox me πŸ™‚

Another vote for Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

I’ve stayed at Port Orleans, Riverside, though.  The food court on the Riverside is better in my opinion – more choices.  On pool days, I would go and get lunch and bring it back to the pool with me.

The dining plan is so great because you feel like can order anything on the menu without having to worry! We loved it, but you do get a LOT of food at each meal.

One of our favorite places was the 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios. It’s set up like a kitchen from the 50’s and the waiters/waitresses act like your mom. They even make you eat your vegetables. It’s so much fun but also has really great “comfort food” like fried chicken, mashed potatoes, meatloaf, etc. Try it! Enjoy your honeymoon!

Fav restaurants we went to on our honeymoon: 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios, Citricos in the Grand Floridian, the Biergarten in Germany at Epcot, the Sci-Fi Cafe in Hollywood Studios, and Ohanas in the Polynesian!

We honeymooned at Disney World, and it was amazing!

We paid to upgrade to the deluxe dining plan so that we could also eat at some of the really nice restaurants that cost two meal credits. If doing that is in the budget, the California Grill is AMAZING, and so is Narcoosee’s.

If you’re sticking with the regular plan, my favorites for a Honeymoon are…

Magic Kingdom – Be Our Guest is a new restaurant themed around Beauty and the Beast, it’s supposed to be really cool! Eating in castle is cool too, but more for the environment than the food.

Epcot – Le Cellier is a must! It’s the steakhouse in Canada – I’d go for lunch, dinner takes two meal credits and you can get the same food at lunchtime. Although really just about anywhere in the World Showcase is cool, maybe pull up the menus online (you can see them at http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/disneydining.cfm) and see what sounds good. Other than Le Cellier, I’ve heard the best things about Chefs de France (French food, obviously), Restaurant Marrakesh (Moroccan), Teppan Edo (Japanese, you’ll sit with other families/couples, one of those cool setups where they cook the food on the grill right in front of you), and Via Napoli (Italian). For seafood, the Coral Reef is great and you’re surrounded by an aquarium.

Hollywood Studios – I’m going to have to disagree with the Sci-Fi recommendation, the environment is cool but the food is pretty awful. 50s Prime Time is funny and cool as long as you have a sense of humor about the waiter/waitress picking on you, haha. 

Animal Kingdom – Flame Tree Barbecue, Yak and Yeti, and Tusker House are all great!

Hotels – I agree that Boma is great and really unique! Citricos in the Grand Floridian is very nice if you can’t spring for Narcoosee’s. The Kona Cafe at the Polynesian has a super popular breakfast food called Tonga Toast that tons of people, including my Darling Husband, love. Also at the Polynesian, the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show is really cool!

Downtown Disney – Raglan Road has great Irish food, step dancing, etc.

@Wonderstruck: & @charmedbee

I just got back from Disney & for what it’s worth the food at Be Our Guest was freakin’ terrible.  We waited about an hour and a half to get in even though they told us it was 20 minutes max & my mom was actively pissed off at how bad the food was. We got the steak sandwich & it was like eating charred rubber. So disappointing.

 

Boma is my favorite place at Disney.  It’s a lot of fun & you get to try a lot of different food.

@BagsnBooks:  Darn, sorry to hear that about Be Our Guest! I’m currently pregnant and won’t be going back for quite a few years, till my child is old enough to enjoy it, and I hope they get better by then because I thought it sounded so good!

And I definitely agree about Boma – they have some awesome and really unique food, but even the pickiest eaters (like me!) still leave full and happy.
