Disney's flagship restaurant is the destination for honeymoons, anniversaries, proposals, and gourmands. The company puts much stock in Chef Scott Hunnel, a multiple James Beard nominee who sources ingredients personally and also oversees the top-tier restaurants on Disney Cruise Line. Praised as the only AAA five-diamond restaurant in Central Florida, a citation it has earned since 2000, the 65-seater lays on its indulgent seven-course menu (amuse-bouches, osetra caviar, Iwate Japanese beef with oxtail jus, pheasant consommé) presented to you under cloches like a parade of debutantes. It's so theatrical you just have to swoon. It's like the Very Fancy Restaurant where a character might take a date on a sitcom, which adds to the theater. The resort's most exclusive reservation is here: the four-table Queen Victoria's room, where a private 10-course meal is served behind closed doors for $210 per person before wine. It sells out. Reserve 180 days ahead.
