    We (me, DH, 7 yo daughter & 5 yo son, as well as my parents) will be visiting WDW the 2nd week of Dec. Being we will have my parents with us DH and I want to do a date night, but have no idea where to start!! So we are looking for recommendations??

    Hi Eleanor:

    Disney World is one of the greatest places to have a date night.  For a date night, I would enjoy a great restaurant. There are a number of romantic restaurants at Disney World. If I had to select only one, it would be California Grill atop the Contemporary Resort. California Grill features delicious California Fusion cooking and spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom and the Wishes fireworks show. If I could throw in four close runner-ups, I would also recommend Le Cellier, a tasty steakhouse at Epcot's Canada Pavilion, Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge, which serves dishes influenced by African, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisine, Coral Reef in Epcot where you can dine infront of underwater views, and Victoria and Albert's, a delicious formal restaurant and winner year-after-year of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond award.  Wherever you choose, I would make your advance dining reservation as soon as possible.

    Aside from dining, there are a number of other romantic date night activities at Walt Disney World.  I would consider heading to Downtown Disney and taking in a balloon ride with Characters in Flight (not exclusively an adult activity, but a very romantic experience with a breathtaking view of Disney World property and beyond.)  You could tour the countries of World Showcase in Epcot and try your favorite or new adult drinks. Perhaps you can enjoy a stroll on the Boardwalk and stop by Jellyrolls.

    You also may consider contacting the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts at (407) WDW-GIFT or (407) 939-4438. They can help pick out the perfect date night gift.

    Enjoy your night out.
