Celebrating our 1st Anniversar y in Disney

To celebrate our first anniversary we did what most couples do...booked a trip to Disney. That is what most couples do, right? Well, it was perfect for us. We didn't have children yet so it seemed like a great opportunity to experience Disney from a different perspective. We filled our trip with romance and fun.

On our actual anniversary I had a limo pick us up from our resort and take us to the Grand Floridian for dinner. I felt like we were VIPs because when that limo pulled up to the Grand Floridian unannounced the cast members jumped into action. They were there to open the door, see if we knew where we were going, and if we needed any assistance.

We casually walked across the grounds of the Grand Floridian dressed in our best. You can't get out of a limo wearing shorts. Everyone kept turning to look at us as if we were someone famous that they didn't recognize. We were headed for Narcoossee's. This is a beautiful signature dining restaurant right on the Seven Seas Lagoon facing the Magic Kingdom. A very romantic and beautiful place to have a meal. The food was delicious seafood and charbroiled meats. They have vegetarian options too. The Cesar salad was so good. It was served with the leaves of romaine lettuce whole. It was almost too pretty to eat. The entrees were just as good. I highly recommend Narcoossee's if you enjoy fresh seafood and are looking for a high quality dining experience. ADR's are a must.

We were a few minutes early so we took a walk around the restaurant on the veranda. The veranda is a beautiful place to enjoy a cocktail before or after dinner, watch the sunset, or even the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom. There my husband surprised me with a little black box containing sparkling diamond earings. I was so surprised. A crowd started to gather. Some people congratulated us and thought he had just proposed.

Thanks to the Disney florists there was a bouquet of flowers waiting on our table. You can have them deliver flowers anywhere on the property. We  had a wonderful wait staff who catered to our every need. They treated us to glasses of wine and made sure everything was to our liking.

After dinner we rode the boat back to the Magic Kingdom and eventually took the bus back to our resort. It was sort of funny to be all dressed up and be in line with all the guests leaving the Magic Kingdom. We were asked many times why we were so dressed up, where we came from, and where we were going. It made for a very memorable anniversary.

The whole trip was wonderful. We enjoyed time at the spa and had a couples massage, went on the Keys to the Kingdom tour, and saw the utilidors of the Magic Kingdom. We enjoyed meals at Cinderella's Royal Table, The Hollywood Brown Derby, Fulton's Crab House, Teppan Edo, and The Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue. It was a very different trip then the other trips we have taken with our kids. It was wonderful to enjoy Disney from another perspective. It truly is a vacation spot for people of all ages. Although we will continue to take our children, we also plan to go back again when our children are grown. We hope to stay in the Grand Floridian or the Polynesian and go during the Food and Wine Festival. That is another great adult itinerary with lots to do and eat that can be so enjoyable for people without children in tow.

Have you spent time in Walt Disney World without children? What were some of the highlights for you? I would love to hear about it.
