Top 10 Ideas for Adding Romance to Your Walt Disney World Vacation
$ Unplug from Electronics: Nothing kills the romance faster than being plugged into your devices all night. Put the phone down, store it in your park bag, and just enjoy each other’s company for a few hours. Best of all, this doesn’t cost you a thing!
$ Hold Hands: Standing in line, walking to your next favorite attraction, taking the monorail – hold hands and enjoy the moment with the one you love.
$ Pay Attention: This tip will benefit you even outside of Disney! Pay attention to your partner! Have they mentioned they are getting hungry? Suggest stopping for a snack. Have they been admiring the same thing at every gift shop for the past three days? Sneak away and pick them up that special souvenir. By listening to and paying attention to the small details, your trip will be filled with more romance because your partner will know that you really care.
$$ Make a Few Special Dining Reservations: Whether you are enjoying the Dining Plan, or just eating as you go, you can add some romance into your vacation by making a few special dining reservations. During our last trip to Disney, we had booked the Quick Service Dining Plan, but planned our budget and our time to include a nice dinner out one night. We chose to try Coral Reef at Epcot and had such a great experience! You can make it extra special by dressing up and making a whole night out of it. For example, we spent the afternoon at our resort, got ready and headed to Epcot for dinner, and then afterwards watched Illuminations together. By scheduling in some time to share a special meal together, you can set the mood for the night.
$$ Book a Special Event or Dessert Party: It doesn’t matter when you are planning to travel to Walt Disney World, there is always something special going on! If your partner loves Halloween, surprise them with tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Are you travelling during the holidays? Check out Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Are they a Disney history buff? Consider booking a behind the scenes tour? Want to get away from the evening crowds? Dessert parties are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth and score an awesome location for viewing fireworks.
$$ Room Service: Spend a night alone, dining in your room for dinner. Or catch up on some sleep and order breakfast from room service. And hey, use that Do Not Disturb sign. It’s there for a reason!
$$$ Book a Honeymoon Suite: You don’t have to be honeymooners to enjoy the perks of these rooms! Whether you are traveling for an anniversary, special event, or just because, the honeymoon suite will add instant romance to your vacation.
$$$ Add a Floral Package: Disney will help you plan a perfect surprise. Contact Disney Floral and Gifts to schedule a special in room surprise for your love.
$$$ Disney Senses Spa: vacation can be stressful. Help your partner unwind by scheduling a service with Disney Senses Spa at The Grand Floridian. You can book a couples massage, or treat them to a pampering session.
$$$ Plan a Surprise Vacation: Hey, if you have the budget, go for it! Whether you plan a surprise Disney getaway or book another vacation using a Bounce Back Offer, your partner will most definitely feel the love!
