While I am sure we have all heard some people say Disney is for kids. I, myself am a firm believer that Disney is the most romantic place on earth. My husband and I vacation yearly with no children and after 17 + visits I can honestly say that the romance Disney brings to our vacation has been some of the most memorable moments of our life.
Two things that I plan with romance in mind is the resort we stay at and the restaurants we dine at. I’m a girl that loves intimate magical moments and nothing brings better memories than the atmosphere of a fine Disney restaurant or a breathtaking resort. Here are some of our favorite restaurants that offer some truly intimate dining experiences!

What could be more fitting than dining like royalty inside Cinderella’s Castle! This restaurant will make any girl feel like a princess. Meals here are pre-plated and range under $40.00. Menu items consist of things such as prime rib, lemon lavender chicken and pork chops with bacon and mushroom ragout. The food is irresistible! One thing I love about this restaurant is that you and your special someone can have your photo taken before dinner with Cinderella (included in the price) and then it is presented to you at the end of your meal in a special take-home folder. It comes with one 5x7 photo and several smaller ones. It is the perfect keepsake. Another plus is the characters; these vary from the princesses to the Fairy Godmother and friends. We have always had great interaction with them and I must say, some of the photos I have gotten are priceless. If you are looking for a true fairytale setting with your prince charming, you can’t go wrong with Cinderella’s Royal Table!
This is one my husband’s favorites! Le Cellier is located below the Chateau in the Canada pavilion this restaurant evokes the feel of a wine cellar therefore there are no windows. We love the intimate cozy atmosphere. It has low domed archway ceilings and low lit candles to add to the romantic feel. The food here consists of New York strip, prime rib and pan-seared halibut along with many other offerings. We always love dining here and look forward to walking the gardens around the Canada pavilion. Nothing tugs at my heart more than the feel of magic while strolling world showcase with my prince in hand.

After a romantic day of Disney dining, we always look forward to a relaxing yet intimate evening at our resort. Our favorite and very first resort we ever stayed at is the Caribbean Beach Resort.

The grounds at this resort are breathtaking. We love it here! You get the feel of a tropical Caribbean getaway. They offer a great food court that stays open late and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and also has a full service restaurant. We always request our room in the Barbados section, as it tends to be a little closer to the food and shopping area. This resort is huge so there are several stops at this resort when going back to your room at the end of the day. If you don’t want to sit on the bus for very long, request one of the islands that are one of the first stops (Barbados). The last time we stayed here, we were stop number 3. A lot of the sections offer private pool areas away from the main pool. Nothing is more romantic than laying in a hammock and looking at the stars or enjoying a late night swim with that special someone. With break taking views and the feel of a Caribbean getaway right in middle of all the magic, you can’t go wrong with this moderate resort!
Disney is full of romance, it is all around us, and all we have to do is embrace it. Every time we visit our fairytale continues, as we are surrounded by all of the magic and wonder that Disney put into our hearts to make our fairytale come true. It starts from the moment we step off the plane and see the sign that says, “Walt Disney World”! Wherever you choose to stay or choose to dine, remember, Disney is full of magic, unexpected moments, memories that we can never replace and tears of joy that stay with us forever. Treasure every Disney moment with that special someone, embrace it, fairytales come true every day at Disney World, all you have to do is open your heart and let the magic take over.
