If you’re going to Disneyland in CA and you want a good snack, then go and get the beef skewers at Bengal Barbecue. It is near the Indian Jones ride. I love that ride!
Or you can get the corn dog from the this red corn dog truck on Main Street. It’s a good value because it’s really big and definitely gets you full. Just ask the workers where it is since it’s hard to describe the location.
Oh and don’t miss out on the Dole Pineapple ice cream that is outside of the Tiki Room attraction. It’s the only place that I know of to get this ice cream. I have to get it every time I go because I know i can’t get it elsewhere. The Tiki Room is a little show with fake birds and flowers that sing. Kind of corny, but it’s a great place to go if you want to sit down for a little while in an air conditioned room!
I think one of the most popular rides at Disneyland is Space Mountain. If you actually want to get on, I suggest that the second you get in the park, you go directly to the ride to get your Fastpast. If not, it is so popular that the Fastpasts for that ride run out at about noon.

I have been to both, but spent most of my time in Destination Wedding. In Destination Wedding, people always seem to miss the resturant at the top of the Contemporary. Its AMAZING food and it overlooks the Magic Kingdom and they pipe in the music for the fireworks. HIGHLY recommend!!! Oh – and its very very worth it to look a little goofy and wear the bride and groom mouse ears and go to guest relations and tell them you are on your honeymoon – you’ll get a button. Between the two of those, you’ll be AMAZED at all the little extras and bonuses you’ll be offered.

We went the past couple years to Orlando. I think the Polynesian is the most romantic resort. It is smaller than most of the others, so it is more intimate. One of the ebst experiences of our lives has been laying on a hammock on the Polynesian beach watching the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks. It was amazing. No one else was on the beach.
We also love Le Cellier in Canada in Epcot. Amazing food and less expensive than the other great expensive restaurants. We also love Tony’s Town Square in the Magic Kingdom. On our anniversary they sang Bella Notte and decorated our table, cheesy, but really fun and memorable.
Make sure to tell the concierge at your hotel that your on your honeymoon. They give you buttons and wherever you go you get special treatment. They got us a table overlooking the water at the French restaurant in Epcot and we had the best view of the fireworks! They also give extra special desserts and other extras throughout your stay like a Disney ballon and card in your room.

This thread has been sitting idle for quite a while, but I wanted to add some comments about a recent trip that we took with my parents and brother and sister in law. My brother is in the airforce, and because of this, he was able to save nearly 40% off of the vacation plan including hotel, tickets, and food.
We stayed at the Grand Floridian, and I can honestly say that it is the NICEST hotel that I’ve ever stayed in. Every day…every hour I saw things that impressed me. The service was impecable, the grounds were gorgeous, the food was amazing, and the transportation to and from the parks was so convenient.
We have decided that we want our honeymoon there also, and we are hoping that my brother can swing us another deal or we’d never be able to stay at the Floridian.
My fiance had never been to anything Disney and was positive that it was only for kids, and after having visitied, it was HIS idea to book the honeymoon there. We are so excited!!
