Fun and romantic ways to spend Valentine’s Day at Walt Disney World
Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, and if you haven’t already made plans, you might be feeling the pressure about making this holiday a memorable one. Luckily, there are many romantic things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort that can help you celebrate the day of love.
The Walt Disney World Resort has plenty of romantic activities for couples to experience, ranging from a simple stroll at a Disney resort, to dessert parties for two as you watch the fireworks together.
Throughout the four Disney Parks and 26 Disney resorts, you’ll find an endless amount of things to do with that special someone on the big day. Here are just a few options:
Go parasailing together – Nothing says adventure like parasailing over Bay Lake. Get a bird’s eye view of the Magic Kingdom and the resorts there, all while showing the one you love that taste for excitement. To make a reservation, contact Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, or call 407-939-0754.
Stay in a luxurious resort – Speaking of resorts, you can sweep your significant other off their feet by reserving a stay in one of Disney’s 26 resorts across property. Each one offers a unique experience perfect for making Valentine’s memories. To make reservations, you can call 407-W-DISNEY or visit DisneyWorld.com/Resorts.
Pamper yourself in a Disney Spa – A day at the spa can be a perfect Valentine’s getaway. Senses at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort both offer a “couple’s room” for treatments, where you can get that much-needed massage or relaxing facial. For more information about Disney’s spa offerings, call 407-WDW-SPAS.
Take flight at Disney Springs – Watching the sunset is a staple romantic activity, and Disney can help you take that experience to new heights with the Characters In Flight air balloon, located on the waterfront at Disney Springs. For 8 to 10 minutes, you and your partner can take in the sights from 400 feet in the air and get a 360-degree view of Disney property. You can take flight anytime between 8:30 a.m. and midnight (weather permitting, of course). Those couples who time their experience to any of the three fireworks shows on Disney property will be in for an extra special experience. You can purchase tickets at Disney Springs West Side, and tickets are $18 per adult.
Order a bouquet of flowers – Did you forget to order flowers? Don’t worry, Disney has you covered on that one, too. Their “Dream Makers” are there to help you design a one-of-a-kind floral arrangement perfect for your one-of-a-kind love. They can also help you with an in-room celebration if you’re staying in a Disney resort.
Watch “Wishes” from a yacht – The Grand Floridian’s “Grand 1” yacht can give couples that unforgettable experience of viewing “Wishes” on the waterfront. You can arrange to have champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries to enjoy during your trip, or even a gourmet meal and private butler service. You can make reservations up to 90 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.
Enjoy nature at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground – Set off on horseback through one of the backwoods trails into the deep woods of the resort, exploring a whole new world of nature and wonder with your love. To reserve a spot on a tour, call 407-WDW-PLAY.
Take a horse-drawn carriage ride – If a romantic experience alone is more your style, then a secluded carriage ride through the wilderness of Walt Disney World Resort is perfect for you. The antique carriage departs from Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground and explores the grounds and scenic landscape of its 750 acres. Or, you could choose to ride through Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. Each ride is 25 minutes long. To make your reservation, you can call 407-WDW-PLAY.
Dine in Disney style with a romantic meal – From private to extravagant, Disney Dining offers a wide range of romantic settings for your Valentine’s Day meal. From the fairy tale magic of Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom, to the intimacy of Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, there is sure to be a restaurant that fits with your Valentine’s Day plans. To make reservations, you can go to DisneyWorld.com/Dining or call 407-WDW-DINE, but call soon! Valentine’s Day is a huge holiday at the parks and dinner reservations are often the first to go when making plans.
Tie the knot where “dreams come true” – There’s no better way to say “I love you” than to get married where the magic lives. Since 1995, over 1,000 couples have exchanged their vows at the Walt Disney World Resort. Where else could the bride arrive at the venue in Cinderella’s coach, or have guests like Mickey and Minnie at your wedding reception? For more information, interested guests can call 321-939-4623 or visit DisneyWeddings.com.
Already married? Than a Disney honeymoon is the thing to do – If tying the knot has already been checked off your list, the next best thing is to plan a honeymoon at Disney Parks! Release your inner child with your partner at the four parks and 26 resorts as you start your new life together. For more information or to book a Disney Fairy Tale Honeymoon, call 321-939-4623, or visit DisneyHoneymoons.com.
Renew your vows – Many couples who have seen the test of time in their relationships choose to renew their promise of love to one another at Walt Disney World Resort. Be it five years later, or 50 years later, Disney Fairy Tale Weddings can help couples craft the perfect celebration for this relationship milestone.
The romantic possibilities are endless at Walt Disney World, and with a little planning, patience, and even some pixie dust, you can make this Valentine’s Day one to remember for you and your significant other.
