A newcomer to the most romantic list, this Magic Kingdom treasure puts guests deep within a Fairytale.

Beauty and the Beast fans will delight in the opulent grand ballroom of Beast's Castle where Belle fell in love with her Prince. The French-inspired menu includes classic cuisine and fine wines.
One of the most romantic dinner spots at Walt Disney World Resort - or in all of central Florida for that matter - is a table for two at Victoria & Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The elegant restaurant has been honored with the Five-Diamond Award from AAA for its gourmet cuisine and has been a James Beard award semi-finalist for several years running. Combining Royal Doulton china, Cristofle silver and personalized menus, Victoria & Albert's is the "crown jewel" of the Grand Floridian's dining destinations. Soft harp music fills the air in the intimate dining room. Ladies also receive a long-stemmed red rose. For the ultimate romantic experience, an evening at the Chef's Table is unsurpassed. Couples are seated at a cozy table in Victoria & Albert's kitchen and treated to a culinary feast custom-tailored to their palates by Chef Scott Hunnel.
For an even more intimate dinner setting at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa guests can arrange for a private dinner for two. This private meal can be served against the elegant backdrop of the Grand Floridian beach - or aboard the Grand 1 - on a sunset excursion along Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. Seven day notice is requested for all arrangements so that certain menu items can be specially prepared for the evening. Read our guest review from Robyn her special anniversary dinner.
If you want romance but can't stand the thought of leaving the Parks, there's no more dreamy a locale than Epcot's Paris. Raise a champagne toast to your love and savor the classical French cuisine. At Monsieur Paul in the France pavilion homage is paid with upscale French creations to one of France's most celebrated chefs, Paul Bocuse. The second floor vantage point of the newly redesigned restaurant offers stunning views of the nightly IllumiNations fireworks display. Simply spectacular.
