Valentine’s Day is almost here, and you know what that means: first, you better have a plan for how you’re going to celebrate, and second, it better be a stellar plan. (And third–and probably most important–if you’re making Valentine’s Day plans last minute, make sure you’re the only one who knows that!)
Uh oh, you haven’t made plans yet? No worries. We’ve got you covered with this list of some of the most romantic things you can do at Walt Disney World because everybody knows that celebrating Valentine’s Day at Walt Disney World gets you bonus points from the very beginning. Romance is alive and well at the Walt Disney World Resort, but you have to know the most romantic things to do and the best places inside the theme parks and resorts to experience them.
Take a stroll on the Boardwalk
Is there anything more simply romantic than taking a walk together? Yes. Yes, there is. How about taking a walk hand-in-hand at Disney’s Boardwalk. You don’t even have to be staying at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn or any of the Disney World Resort hotels near the Boardwalk, although it would be a nice touch. Start the evening with dinner at Trattoria al Forno restaurant and enjoy scrumptious Italian food with an artistic flair. Follow your fabulous romantic dinner with a leisurely stroll along Disney’s Boardwalk, and spend the rest of your romantic evening just being together and taking in the sites and the sounds of the Boardwalk. It’s the perfect backdrop for photos, fun and of course, romance.
Experience a Horse-Drawn Carriage ride
Take in the beauty and elegance of Port Orleans Resort Riverside or the rustic beauty and charm of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort as you relax in a horse-drawn carriage with the one you love. February is the perfect time for this experience! The weather is a bit cooler and you can snuggle up together as you take in the sights that are sure to put the romance in your romantic evening.
Indulge in a Couple’s spa treatment
Not too many things are more romantic than a couple’s spa treatment at Senses Spa located inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and inside Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. Get away from it all and enjoy everything from facials to body wraps to massages and more.
Have a romantic dinner at one of Walt Disney World’s most romantic restaurants
Hands down one of the most romantic experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort is dinner at Victoria & Albert’s restaurant. Enjoy New American cuisine in a Victorian-style restaurant. This upscale restaurant offers a seven-course dining experience and the atmosphere is the perfect place for a romantic dinner any time of the year. It’s even the perfect spot to pop the question you’ve been waiting to ask. Victoria & Albert’s restaurant is located inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Be sure to make reservations in advance by calling (407) 939-3862 or booking with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.
Enjoy fireworks on the beach
Whether you’re staying as guests at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort or just there for a visit, you can spend a romantic evening on the white-sand beaches at the resort and take in the sights of the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular over Cinderella’s Castle without fighting the crowds along Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom.
Have a date night even if the kids are traveling with you
Thanks to the magic of Disney World, you and your love can steal away for a romantic evening even if you’re enjoying the theme parks with your little ones in tow. Every Walt Disney World Resort hotel offers babysitting services to its guests and chances are that your kids will have as much fun as you do. Indulge in the peace of mind knowing they are well-cared for while you invest in your relationship with your love.
Sample exquisite desserts at Disney Springs
Head out to Disney Springs for your romantic evening, and after dinner and shopping, step into Amorette’s Patisserie where you can indulge your sweet tooth with French eclairs, miniature cakes, macarons and cookies. Is anything more romantic than chocolate and dessert? Amorette’s Patisserie is a quaint, upscale French-style bakery featuring seasonal pastries, creme brulee and a special dessert called “The Flavors of South Florida.”
