Six Special Ways to Celebrate Your Anniversary at Walt Disney World

You may have heard that Walt Disney World is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. While it’s a great place for newlyweds to spend their first days together, it’s also a wonderful place for couples celebrating an anniversary.

Disney World does offer experiences with plenty of excitement and crowds, but it also provides a surprising number of romantic options too.

Let’s take a look at six special ways to celebrate your anniversary at Walt Disney World.

1 – Take a Carriage Ride

A horse drawn carriage ride for two can be an extremely romantic way to spend an evening. You can make reservations for carriage rides at Disney’s Fort Wilderness, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside. The ride usually lasts about a half hour and takes you past some beautiful natural scenery. You might almost forget that the crowds of the Magic Kingdom are just a few miles away.

2 – Get a Couple’s Massage

If you and your sweetie enjoy pampering and relaxation, consider booking a couple’s massage at one of Disney’s Senses spas. The massage treatments at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort will melt away stress and pain. While these are expensive events, they are also a great way to enjoy a bit of luxury and pampering for a special event like an anniversary.

The finest restaurant on Walt Disney property is Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Be sure to make your reservations well in advance and save up for the event, which will certainly cost several hundred dollars. If you decide to add a wine pairing, count on a few hundred more. Your sweetheart is worth it, isn’t she (or he)?

4 – Watch the Fireworks
