    My son just started the Disney College Program. We will be visiting him in December. We've stayed at GF before and loved it. My husband and I will be having one night to ourselves. Any suggestions?

    What about Cirque du Soleil or a nice meal somewhere like the Yachtmans? :)

    We are planning on doing the Cirque du Soliel show with the family. Just wanted something different and maybe romantic.

    What about a meal at Victoria and Albert's? I've never been but I've heard it's excellent

    I understand the jacket is required and my husband refuses to bring a jacket to "Disney". I was looking for something different. We've been to Disney several times, but never had and evening to ourselves.
    Thanks for your help

    youre right, it needs a jacket and is pretty formal although one of my favourite places!

    How about the California grill?

    I would like to recommend the Bistro de Paris (upstairs) at France. Have the degustation menu. I'm in the process of writing our review of same, but I will tell you it was the shining star of our dining experience not only during our recent stay, but in quite some time. :yes:

    Be absolutely certain you choose the "with wine" version. :yes:
