Are you trying to take a couples getaway to the house of mouse, but instead find yourself dodging strollers and waiting in long lines in sweltering heat? Well, from a couple, who loves to take romantic trips to Walt Disney World, we’ve got you covered! Today, we are putting together a comprehensive guide to our favorite things to do as a couple at the most magical place on earth, to also make it the most romantic place on earth.
We think the Polynesian Village Resort, especially after the recent renovation is not only beautiful, but very romantic. We love the atmospheric lobby, with the hanging lanterns, and beach for sunset walks with views of Cinderella’s Castle. Pop in for a drink at Trader Sam’s, or enjoy one of the resorts great restaurants. For a tropical resort at a lower price point, we love the also recently renovated Caribbean Beach Resort. The new rooms here are tropical without being kitsch, modern, and beautiful. This resort also has lakeside beaches with hammocks for lounging, in the late afternoon Florida sun.
Looking for an unusual romantic experience? Head to the newly christened Disney Springs, for a ride in an amphicar. These old fashioned looking cars are ACTUALLY boats that will take you for a scenic ride around Disney Springs. How cool is that?! They’re a little on the pricey side, but it’s an experience you’ll never forget.
Did you know you can book a private cruise to watch Illuminations or Wishes from? These cruises are PRICEY but are a great place to propose, or an amazing anniversary surprise. They can be reserved 90 days in advance.
You can book a romantic carriage ride for you and your significant other at either Port Orleans Resort, or Fort Wilderness Resort. We think this carriage ride is the best at Christmas at Fort Wilderness, when people put out all their Christmas lights.
Explore The World:
Can’t afford a trip around the world? What about a trip around World Showcase? Something that’s a great couple activity is eating and drinking (in moderation) around World Showcase. Enjoy margaritas together in Mexico, or macaroons in France. One of our favorite romantic Disney activities is to wait to until the park closes, and just take a leisurely stroll through the park. It’s a beautiful place to be enjoyed with someone you love.
Have A Romantic Dinner:
Treat the person you love to a fine dining experience. Whether you want to eat high-atop the Contemporary Resort at The California Grill, with beautiful views of Bay Lake, or in a cozy wine cellar like atmosphere at Le Cellier, Walt Disney World has something for everyone.
Enjoy The Magic:
Just because you aren’t a kid, doesn’t mean you can’t be swept away in the magic of The Magic Kingdom. We think that The Magic Kingdom is the most romantic of all the parks . It’s stunning park, surreal in its beauty, We think the most romantic thing to do at Walt Disney World is just to stay at The Magic Kingdom until closing time, and then wander around, enjoying all the lights of Main Street U.S..A.
We hope our guide to romance to Walt Disney World helps spice up your trip, and helps you make your time as a couple at Disney even more special.
