  • Help me plan a romantic first DL trip dinner!

    Ok, so after constant nagging, I finally got my boyfriend (who I'll affectionatelly refer to as Phillip) to agree to spend the entire day with me at the park on saturday. The thing is, I want this trip to be amazingly special (and dare I say, romantic) since it's the first time (of hopefully many more) that we'll be going to the park together. I'm thinking a dinner reservation may be the perfect opportunity for this, the question is... where and when? A few people made some suggestions, but I thought I'd throw it out on the board and find out what you guys think. Keep in mind with the timing issues that I want to see if we can get a chance to see Remember... Dreams Come True and maybe even the 10:30 pm showing of Fantasmic! So keep that in mind.

    - Ariel's Grotto at 5:30 pm (sunset is at 6:03 pm on saturday)
    - Blue Bayou at 7:00 pm
    - Napa Rose at 7:00 pm
    - Blue Bayou at 8:00 pm
    - OTHER (feel free to suggest)

    First trip? Blue Bayou, all the way. That way your head explodes with all of the magicalness.

        I like to be sitting on Main Street when they start to turn on the lights in the trees (around sunset). I tried to get my boyfriend to propose to me there, but he knew that I really wanted it to be a surprise and asked 3 days before a planned trip to the park.

          I would go with Blue Bayou at 7. That way you can wait the extra time for the waterfront table and still get out in plenty of time to see Rembmer... from a decent spot. You can't beat BB for romance at Disneyland. Last time I was there a couple got engaged.
          Check out my new Disney Blog here. What it lacks in quality it makes up with... Well, nothing I guess.

            But you didn't really care for the menu at the Bayou, I thought? And wow, am I out of the loop, I didn't even know you guys were an "item!" Go with either Ariel's for the sunset over Paradise Bay, or the Napa Rose, since that one's been award winning since it opened.

                Aww that is soo sweet I say Blue Bayou at 7:00pm and cuddle together for the fireworks. Sometimes you kind of have to PUSH your male to be romantic at disneyland :love: he'll get used to it (or at least thats what I tell myself).

                  You didn't know? Phillip and I have been together since August 24th. My big joke is that he was my birthday present (My b-day is August 23rd). Even though it's only been 2 months, it's the first time that it just feels like it's so much more. It's kind of odd, because everyone who sees us together can feel it too.

                  As for the Blue Bayou's food, I really don't care either way. I'm looking for a special and romantic experience more than anything and I know that the Blue Bayou really can't be beat for that. My culinary choices are slim anyway since I'm vegetarian nowadays. If you think about it, when you remember a romantic meal, you rarely think about what the food itself was unless of course it was particularly awful. You remember the lighting, the mood, the sounds. That's what I'm really looking for. I want this to truly be a night to remember.

                    You know, if you are truly meant to be and in love, it doesn't matter where you eat. The best meal I had was when my fance and I had Hot Chocolate and chocolate chip cookies. I kept the bag, laminated it and mounted it on my wall. She sighs each time she looks at it.

                      Sadako's got a boyfriend? Lotta broken hearts here today!

                      I was always hoping you and DarkBeer would hit it off since you're both DL and camera buffs.

                        Personally, I would recommend ditching the whole "romantic" notion completely.

                        Since Philip is a guy, make it a really fun day for him, don't push the romance.

                        Now if you want the BB because it's good food that's great.

                        Remember Men are a different species than women. If he's having fun with you he'll bring you back for romance. If the romance is feeling pushed on him, he'll hate it.

                            Phillip? That's not his name.... oh wait, I get it, "Prince Phillip", right? I'd say the more "Tech" the restaurant the better for him. Especially if its Taste Pilot's Grill with the high tech screens.

                            Hey, you can combine "Cal" and "Tech" that way!

                              Since you are vegetarian, do the BB. Try the portobello mushrooms. Mmmmmm. I know they offer them for lunch, not sure about dinner.

                                Blue Bayou all the way. My wife and I ate there the first time.

                                  Oh I think the Napa Rose! Not to crazy about the BB after the last time we went... )
                                  Where ever you decide, I am sure you will have a great time with Prince Phillip!

                                    Hmmm. voted NR, but didn't know that it'll be "Phillip"'s first time in BB.

                                    In that case, I think BB is the better choice!
                                    Definitely 7 though... might want to schedule the dessert on the
                                    balcony for F!.

                                    Have a nice time, Sadako! Remember, NO PICTURES! (unless you
                                    really want to!)

                                      Blue Bayou at 7 is the way to go IMO.

                                      That way you have plenty of time to do other stuff in the park that happens in the evening, and you won't eat too late (I know people that eat dinner at 6 and some that eat at 8...makes a hug difference in the hunger factor).

                                      It's also the most romatic spot in the park. And even if one isn't a total gush, they'll still enjoy the atmosphere.

                                      Good luck!

                                        I would have to go along with the Blue Bayou idea bandied about here.

                                        You can't beat it for atmosphere. It's the best combination of Disney magic and romance. You've got park connections, see if someone can help make your 7:00 visit better.

                                        I would recommend telling the maitre'd that it's a special night and you would like a table on the waterfront. They usually accomodate if you ask nicely and it would be better than eating in the midst of the masses. It's worth asking for something "more" at Disney.

                                        Of course, I agree with the above post about broken hearts. Giving suggestions for you and Phil to connect romantically is a bitter pill for some of us guys. But, we'd rather see you happy. :blush:
