ROMANTIC THINGS TO DO AT DISNEY WORLD

Now, we all know that Walt Disney World isn’t just for children but how can you make the most out of your experience with your partner? We are sharing the most romantic things to do at Disney World so you can have the perfect couple’s trip.

The fireworks

I LOVE watching the fireworks, whether it is from Magic Kingdom’s Main street, from a hotel or resort or even cuddled up on the beach at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, we always find a place to watch the fireworks whilst at Disney World. 

If you are looking to splurge, you could opt for a fireworks cruise. It is expensive but you can reserve your own boat and view fireworks at Magic Kingdom or Epcot, depending on your preference. You can even choose a premium option to include dining on the boat.

Wine tasting around the ‘world’

Head to Epcot’s World Showcase and enjoy the wine and beer on offer in each country alongside some small plates of your favourite cuisine. It is understated but this makes for a wonderful romantic stroll with your other half, especially as the sun begins to set and it begins to get cooler. 

A horse-Drawn Carriage ride

Head over to Port Orleans Resort or Disney’s Fort Wilderness resort and enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the beautiful scenery and along the charming pathways of the resorts. 

You can reserve your ride at (407) 939 – 7529, rides are 25 minutes and can fit up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children. Each horse-drawn carriage ride costs $55. 

Watch a show

Whether it is a Disney performance inside the park or a full Cirque du Soleil show in Downtown Disney, surprise your partner with a trip to a performance. Cirque tickets can be booked in advance and start at $79, typically lasting around an hour and a half, with two performances each evening. 

Atlantic Dance Hall

For those club-goers, the lively nightclub on Disney’s Boardwalk opens its doors at 9 pm and offers fairly good music plus requests to the DJ can be made.

Watch a Disney classic

Every night, you can snuggle up with your loved one and a blanket and watch a Disney classic at any of the Disney resorts (weather permitting). Resorts offer outdoor movie screens to enjoy for free once the sun has set. Many resorts include comfortable seating areas and a nearby quick-service restaurant for those looking for a snack whilst they cuddle up and enjoy the movie.

A spa day

Spa days aren’t for everyone but if you both love a good massage, Disney is the place for you. There are spas all over Orlando but nothing beats the Senses Spa in Disney’s Grand Floridian.

You can get all types of massages, facials, body wraps and luxurious experiences here so browse their website and plan a romantic spa day. If a full day isn’t for you, why not enjoy a hot tub together at one of the Disney resorts; most pool areas will have a few Jacuzzi’s nearby and these are often empty once the sun has set.

Buy matching ears

What isn’t cuter than getting yourself a matching pair of ears! I will be honest, I don’t think my husband would wear ears long enough to take a picture but for those with partners that don’t mind, get yourself a pair of matching ears for your trip to the park. 

Rent a boat or Kayak

This has to be our favourite romantic thing to do at Disney World. Many of the lakeside Disney resorts offer canoes, kayaks or boat rentals (as do many of the non-Disney resorts and hotels in Orlando). Spending an hour or two on the lake just the two of you

. Relax, chat and enjoy the waters together in the sunshine.

Disney’s Boardwalk Inn

When the sun goes down, the twinkling lights come alive along the boardwalk. The restaurants and food stands offer great food at decent prices and the wooden planks at to the romantic atmosphere. There are entertainers on the street as well as live music playing whilst the Epcot fireworks show can also be seen from here too. Head to the Boardwalk Bakery for some sweet treats to end your evening.

Get a romantic ride at Disney World

Yes, these parks are created to be magical places for children but they can be just as special for adults too. Jump of the Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride with your partner for a cuddle in the sky, go on safari at Kilimanjaro Safaris in Animal Kingdom, race together along the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom or compete to be the best shooter on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger or Midway Mania at Hollywood Studios.

Enjoy the parades

I love watching the parades and it is a great opportunity for you to find a spot and watch the celebrations together.

Drive on water

Head to Disney Springs, jump in an amphicar and drive on the lake. You can snuggle in the back seat whilst your driver takes you around the lake. Tours can be booked from 10 am to 10 pm and cost $125 for up to three people. Make sure you reserve your slow in advance. 

Alternatively, you can book The Venezia; an Italian styled water taxi which offers a guided tour of Disney Springs complete with chocolate-covered strawberries and a champagne toast.

Wishes Dessert Party

What isn’t there to love about a dessert party?! Head over to Magic Kingdom and enjoy a romantic firework display and dessert party, held on the Tomorrowland Terrace. You can enjoy an array of sweet treats along with lemonades and sparkling cider, as well as VIP seating for the fireworks. 

RunDisney

I felt like this should be mentioned after telling you to stuff your face at a dessert party. But, for those that love to challenge yourself and love a run, why not sign up for RunDisney. You don’t have to be an athlete to take part, many participants enjoy dressing up and walking the route, taking in the character meet and greets on the way.

San Angel Inn – This restaurant in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot is a favourite experience of mine. Enjoy your meal under the faux twinkling stars in a pyramid, eat delicious Mexican food and not worry about it costing a fortune. Great for couples on a budget.

California Grill – This favourite at Disney’s Contemporary Resort offers a fantastic view of the fireworks in Magic Kingdom and is known for its fantastic flavours of the Pacific Coast. You can also have a Sunday brunch feast here whilst enjoying views of the nearby parks. 

Tony’s Town Square Restaurant –  This Magic Kingdom restaurant is a fantastic place to share a spaghetti and meatball dinner at this Italian bistro modelled after the quaint classic from Lady and the Tramp. Expect dim lighting, delicious food and a cozy atmosphere whilst you enjoy your date night.
