Back in 2007, Josh and I took an 8-day trip to Disney World for our honeymoon. It was such a fun and magical vacation! We rode tons of rides, ate amazing food, met lots of the characters, relaxed at the hotel pool, and drank our way around the World Showcase.
Sometimes people look at me like I’m crazy when they hear we went to Disney for our honeymoon. They usually ask why we’d choose Disney over an all-inclusive resort somewhere on the beach. But Disney can be such a romantic place! Yes, you’ll be much more active at Disney (there’s a ton of walking involved on a Disney trip) but there are also tons of ways to relax and unwind. And if you’re like my husband and I, Disney provides the entertainment aspect that we crave on vacations. I usually get bored of laying around at the beach after a day or two. Give me rides! Give me shows! Give me magic!
That all being said, I wanted to share 5 great ways to make a Disney World Trip more romantic.
5 Ways to Make a Disney World Trip More Romantic
1. Go to Tony’s and recreate the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti scene.
We did this on our honeymoon! And this was back before the days of Instagram, when people didn’t take a million silly pictures of themselves all day long. So I was really embarrassed to ask the waiter to take our picture. But I’m SO glad I did. It’s a wonderful memory.
2. Book a fireworks cruise.
I mean, what can be more romantic that sailing around in a boat watching fireworks? I always get chills watching the Disney fireworks. That Disney magic runs through my veins. Ha!
3. Splurge on one of the Deluxe hotels, even if it’s just for one night.
We still haven’t been able to stay at one of the Deluxe hotels, but it’s on my bucket list! We couldn’t afford it for our honeymoon, and when we take the kids, we’d rather stay at one of the more affordable hotels. But next time we’re able to go to Disney sans kids, we’re totally splurging!
4. Make sure to factor in some down time during your planning.
This was key for our honeymoon trip. We had lots of mornings or afternoons where we’d just relax at the hotel or lay by the pool.
5. Wear matching shirts and ears.
You’re at Disney – this isn’t the time to be embarrassed about matching your significant other. This is the time to go all out! Purchase matching ears, grab a honeymoon or anniversary button, and wear matching shirts. It adds an extra element of fun to an already fantastic trip!
So if you’re looking to book a memorable trip with the one you love, look into going to Disney World. Because the most magical place on earth can also be the most romantic!
