To celebrate our anniversary in the fall, my husband and I are going on a cruise then to WDW after. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside. Please give me some ideas on romantic places to visit or to eat. Thank you!
Welcome. If money is not an object then Victoria & Alberts or California Grill. If it is then Le Cellier or Tutto Italia are nice at Epcot. If you check out www.allears.net then Deb's site has all the restaurants and menus listed to help you out.

we're doing the same type of romantic trip. san angel is at the top of our list, and so is marakeesh. i think we're going to do a lot of snacks and find romantic spots to have little meals. places like the fountain in france, the oasis at AK, basically any place at MK and world showcase oozes romance- we'll be stealing kisses places like that. have fun!
Hit up the carriage ride at POR in the evening hours (around sunset), it's beautiful and romantic. Is there a specific thing you guys like at WDW that is a fave? For my DH and I, nothing beats dinner at Rose & Crown followed by Illuminations. It's our "thing."
Have you been to WDW before? What types of food do you both enjoy? Dinner at Boma's is yummy and follow that up with a night time stroll out to see the animals afterwards is another romantic thing to do.
As others have said, V&A if you can spring for it, and Cali Grill are both great ideas.
I've told lots of people: the "romance" at WDW is everywhere, as long as you're with the person you love. I don't believe in setting up romantic situations, because I don't think it's that - well, romantic! I DO believe in taking advantage of an opportunity when it presents itself. Sometimes, it's just holding hands in line, and sometimes it's kissing at the finale of a fireworks display.

I found the most romantic thing we did last year was catch the boat from the contemporary to wilderness lodge....then stroll around the grounds, grab some food / drinks and settle down to just listen and watch the people/ sun set....disney goes out of their way to provide fantastic surroundings for free...why not enjoy them
or Poly beach for fireworks, sink your toes into the sand and enjoy the show.

My wife and I did our 10th anniversary a few years ago and had a great time. It was great, we were planning to go in secret, and watching the planning DVD as a family just for fun, when my oldest suggested that it would be a great idea if my wife and I went, just the two of us for once (we usually go at least once a year). We of course had to promise that we'd take her and her sister soon too...but that we should go just the two of us.... so we did, and could plan easily with the green light from her
We did a bunch of really great stuff, lots of things we have wanted to do, but not done because of the kids. One of the things we loved the most is being able to park hop willy-nilly...and would be silly enough to hop to two or three parks in one day...sometimes just to enjoy one experience in a park. "We've got two hours, how about we go to HS to ride ToT before it closes" Stuff like that. Also really enjoyed just being with each other, and not having the kids around. Sounds bad, I know... but it really helps my wife and I appreciate each other that much more.
Dining-wise, any ADRs you make, be sure to let them know you are celebrating your anniversary (I did it for all the reservations, not just the actual day). Some places, it did nothing (Mama Melrose's in HS...we got the "gift" of having to wait more than a half hour longer for our table.....coupled with so-so food...NOT impressed) but also got fabulous treatment... sitting in the Wine Room in the California Grill, water-side seat with personalized menus at NArcoosee's... plus special desserts at both locations, Cali Grill's even wishing us a Happy Anniversary too.... really great experiences, and can definitely recommend both to go to.
Good luck in the planning, the wife and I had a ball when we went just the two of us, and I'm sure we'd love to go back again....just the two of us!!!
