Ive been looking at all the menus and have a few ideas but would like to hear from everyone else. Somewhere not too expensive but with a great atmosphere

For the ultimate, V& A`s cannot be beat however dining there is a bit pricy.

Other places I would recommend [in no particular order] are :~ Citrico`s at the GF, The Blue Zoo at the Swan/Dolphin, Yachtman`s Steak House at the YC, Artist`s Point at WL, Jiko`s at AKL or the California Grille at the Contemp.
All of these would be great for that "special" dinner.

If you want to go into the parks, the Marrakesh at Morocco in the World Showcase would be nice too. :yes: France has two choices, either would be very nice (the upstairs Bistro is much more expensive than the ground floor Chefs du France).

Japan has nice food, but it's not very private, so it might not be the best idea for an anniversary.

Flying Fish Cafe on the boardwalk comes highly recommended. :yes:

Coral Reef in Future World has been getting very nice reviews. You can also arrange (for a price of course) to have a diver approach the window of the huge tank and hold up a Happy Anniversary sign. :yes: That might be neat!

The House of Blues in DTD has great food, wonderful atmosphere, but you'll need to be into the music. It can be a bit loud in there sometimes too.

Off site, there are some very nice places in the Dr. Phillips area. If you took a cab from DTD you wouldn't be traveling far. There are Roy's, Bonefish, Moonfish, Melting Pot, Ruth's Chris, Timpanico's Samba Room, Morton's... I know there are others but I can't remember them all.

Charley's Steakhouse will provide transport to their restaurant (on 192). :yes:

We would've eaten there more but thought we might get a bit fed up with it over 3 weeks! Obviously you plan your adr's etc but there were still a few nights when we were at a loose end and honestly I could've gone there every night!

Hi Diane,

If you come out of Disney towards 192 take the left turn as if you were going towards Old town Kissimmee. On your left on 192 you will see a Radisson on the left, Charleys is in a small mall next to the hotel. Before you get to Old Town and turn off for Celebration.
We were there in October and never booked but I don't know about other times of the year.

Thanks .... looking for somewhere for Christmas Eve for dinner!!!!!!
Parks are probably all booked out and, on Christmas Eve, we may not get into the parks anyway at that time of day if they get to capacity :(

Tink

Steak. Massive amounts of steak. All sorts of cuts. I honestly can't remember what else they have! :unsure:

Well, I can't honestly say I'd go that far. :D Keith may though! It's a bit less expensive and the portions are massive, so that is a factor too, eh?

The service is usually very good too. It's quite a popular place, I'll give you that.

The menu looks really nice - even for a non steak eater like myself and DH would love it. Those smashed potatoes are all I would need! :lol:
