While the thought of Disney World brings ideas of zooming attractions and screaming kids to mind for many people, it can also be a very intimate and romantic place. With just a bit of planning, you and your sweetie can enjoy some quiet time together in a variety of different locations, and at many different price points.
Let’s take a look at the top 7 ideas for romantic outings at Walt Disney World:
1 – Caribbean Beach Resort
Especially if you have spent time in the real Caribbean in the past, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort can bring back memories of quiet evenings along the beach, beautiful sunsets, and unrushed walks near the water. Settle into a hammock and allow the gentle breezes to transport you to a special place. And the good news is that simply enjoying the sights is free.
2 – Disney’s Boardwalk
If you like the hustle and bustle of fun-loving crowds and numerous dining options, check out Disney’s Boardwalk. Rent a surrey bike and take it for a spin along the boardwalk as you enjoy the sights and sounds of fun happening all around you. Work up a hunger for a fine meal at a restaurant like The Flying Fish or Kouzinna, or burn off enough calories to take on the Kitchen Sink ice cream monster at Beaches & Cream.
3 – Dinner And A Show
Yes, it’s a standby, but dinner and a show is a great way to spend some time together. Disney Springs offers plenty of options for dinner – from the highly rated Portobello Italian restaurants to the hip cuisine of Wolfgang Puck. And the AMC Theater offers the latest movies – or you can spring for the artistry of La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.
4 – Fireworks From The Contemporary Resort
There are plenty of places to take in the Wishes fireworks that decorate the sky above Cinderella Castle. But if you don’t’ want to deal with all the crowds on Main Street USA, make dinner reservations at the California Grill high atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Not only will you get to see the fireworks show, but the ingenious folks at Disney also pipe in the music so you get the full experience.
5 – Wilderness Lodge
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge takes you back to a simpler time in the majestic lodges of the northwest. And the Territory Lounge is a great place for a few drinks as you relax, unwind, and share a few memories of your adventures together.
6 – Fort Wilderness
Another free option is to take a romantic evening walk around Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. You might pass a campfire or a sing along, and you can listen to the sounds of nature all around you.
7 – Fine Dining At The Grand Floridian
No list of romantic ventures at Disney World would be complete without mentioning dinner at Victoria and Albert’s Restaurant. Yes, you need to dress up, and yes it is wildly expensive. But dinner there is also a chance to experience one of the best meals you will ever enjoy, together with impeccable service and the Victorian charm as only Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa can deliver.
