20 – Sci-Fi Dine-In

While the theming of the Sci-Fi restaurant in Hollywood Studios doesn’t make for a private date, the fact that you dine at a drive-in movie can bring back memories of parking the car and snuggling up to enjoy a double feature. With tables and booths in the shape of classic cars and 50’s movies about robots, aliens, and mummies on the screen, this makes for an enjoyable date.

18 – Yachtsman Steakhouse

In a prominent New England style, the Yachtsman Steakhouse is a great restaurant to splurge on for a romantic fine-dining experience.

16 – Coral Reef 

For a quiet meal with an incredible view, the Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot gives you a perfect opportunity to enjoy both. The intimate setting with dimmed lighting and a wave motif give you the sense that you’re underwater with a great view of the over 4000 sea creatures in the 5.7 million-gallon saltwater aquarium. The seafood dishes change seasonally, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu, especially the Baileys and Jack Daniel’s Mousse for dessert.

About Ryan Miller

Ryan loves all things Disney: from the smallest details to the biggest surprises and all of the magic in between. He loves the fireworks of Wishes, the thrill of Tower of Terror and of course, the dining at Disney Restaurants. As of yet, however, he has been unable to replicate his favourite dishes and snacks at home. In between trips, you can usually find him reading about the history of the parks and attractions when he’s not at work for his local public library in Burlington Ontario. Ryan’s favourite Disney moment was proposing in front of Cinderella’s Castle to his (now) fiancée, Lauren.
