<<Introduction>>

This is the night, it's a beautiful night, and we call it bella notte.  Yes, with Valentine's Day has just passed and love is certainly in the air.  While Walt Disney World is often thought of as a family fun spot, many couples make the vacation kingdom a romantic retreat for Valentine's Day and through-out the year.  In this love struck edition we take a look at the new Queen Victoria's Room dining experience, find out how a couple can turn a Disney World vacation into a romantic retreat this February, and count-down the most romantic restaurants in all of Walt Disney World.   Hang on to them hats and glasses, cause this here's the most informative ride on the internet!

<<A Victorian Valentine>>

Victoria & Albert's has always offered an aura of elegance and opulence to make an especially romantic night for many couples.  The top-rated dining room has now added an even more private and luxurious way to make a special night for you and your loved one by introducing the Queen Victoria’s Room.  Queen Victoria’s Room is behind closed doors just off the main dining room. With just four tables, restaurant manager Israel Perez promises attention to your every whim. Adding to the show aspect of the dinner, they’ve brought back French gueridon service.  This elegant rolling cart may be used to offer you a flourish of Himalayan sea salt atop your filet, a decadent wine sauce, or a lavish display of cheese; adding extra ambience to your meal.  The sommelier happily will pair something delicious with each of the 10 courses. Yes, 10 courses, but they’re small. Still, plan on three to four hours of leisurely dining.  You’ll float out the door with a long-stemmed rose for women and personalized menus for everyone to carry home. Cost for Queen Victoria’s Room is $200 per person, plus $95 for wine pairings. The restaurant has its own reservation line, 407-939-3862, and there is just one seating nightly.  This new dining experience is an exquisite way to splurge on Valentine's Day or any other special night to celebrate love in the lap of luxury.

<<INTERCOT Top 5 . . . Romantic Restaurants>>

 

The Walt Disney World resort offers many dining locations, but some are certainly much more romantic than others.  In the spirit of St. Valentine's Day, the INTERCOT Insider set out to find the 5 most romantic restaurants on Disney World property.  After a failed initiative to have Guests mail their votes to INTERCOT headquarters by writing their picks on little candy hearts, the INTERCOT Insider scanned the Discussion Boards and tabulated the INTERCOTee Top 5 Romantic Restaurants.  

 

Coming in at number 5 ... San Angel Inn

 

This Epcot eatery will conjure up more than just amor for its food. Tucked away on the banks of the El río de Tiempo deep inside the Mexico Pavilion, couples dine by moonlight, a slowly erupting volcano, and the peaceful calm of the river flowing by.

 

Coming in at number 4 ... Narcoossee's

 

The Grand Floridian's "other" fine dining establishment trumps its more proper sibling for the number four spot on our list.  More affordable than Victoria & Albert's, this waterside eatery still packs a punch in the opulence department.  If the elegant ambience doesn't put you in a romantic mood, your stomach is sure to fall in love with the steaks, seafood dishes, and desserts that have made this dining room a top pick.

 

Coming in at number 3 ... Bistro de Paris

 

Amour is surely in the air at this Epcot dining room.  Perched high above the already romantic France Pavilion, this elegant dining room evokes everything romantic about le Paris.  Known as being the only adult tailored restaurant with-in the gates of the theme parks (there is no children's menu) this restaurant is designed in many facets to cater to the couple looking for an intimate, romantic meal.

 

Coming in at number 2 ... California Grill

 

High atop the Contemporary Resort this dining room brings romance and cuisine to new heights.  A favorite for both its steaks and views, this eatery will please the pallet and the senses.  The prized reservations are those during the presentation of Wishes! or special fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, which the restaurant offers an amazing view of.  Even if Guests can't get a reservation during the prime time, Guests who have dined earlier for dinner are invited back to the observation balcony to watch the spectacle from a bird's eye view.

 

And coming in at number 1 ... Artist Point

 

This intimate eatery nestled in the Wilderness Lodge offers the perfect blend of restaurant and romance that puts it on the top of our list.  Its warm and inviting decor draws its inspiration from the dining rooms found at National Park lodges and is adorn with rich murals offering a rustic romance warming the heart and soul.  The restaurant also offers a stunning view of Bay Lake and Silver Creek Falls.  The ornate dining room furthers its bouquet for the senses with an exclusive wine list from Oregon, California and Washington State.  One visit, and this restaurant wins over many Guests with its combination of ambience and epicurean delights.

 

<< Conclusion >>

We hope cupid has hit his mark with some romantic ideas for you next Walt Disney World vacation, because this Valentine themed edition has come to a close.  We'll be back in a few weeks with tips and advice from other INTERCOTee's, as well as; a look at some of the latest money saving deals.  See ya real soon!
