Moms Panel: Top 5 Tips for Romance at Walt Disney World Resort

Romance at Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World Moms Panelist Dannée N. of Indiana is quite the romantic. She says that just because you are a mom doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun.

  1. Leave the kids at home! There is no rule that says Walt Disney World Resort is just for kids. Thousands of singles, couples and honeymooners visit the resort each year with nary a child in tow.
  2. Enjoy a couple’s massage at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Ooh la la!
  3. Many restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort are quite sophisticated, especially in the evenings. Bistro de Paris at Epcot is one of my husband’s favorites. We love the ambiance and he says that the lighting makes me look gorgeous.
  4. Take a romantic carriage ride at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
  5. Most of the lounges and bars of Walt Disney World Resort have specialty cocktails. One of our favorites is the Passion Fruit Mojito which we have for a nightcap.

Do you have any other tips to share?

My wife and I got engaged at the Grand Floridian in 1988 when we were in college. We dined there then walked back along the beach to the Polynesian where we were staying. With the castle glowing in the distance and our lives together stretching out ahead, it was most romantic indeed.

I have always thought that Fort Wilderness Resort is awfully romantic with those roaring lobby fires and serene pool setting. And I have to say GIFTS OF A LIFETIME is has always been my go-to for special occasions. They’re great for engagements, anniversaries, and other romantic occasions!

I personally prefer the carriage rides at Port Orleans Riverside, it takes you along a picturesque river, beneath a bridge, then through the French Quarter before turning around. Very romantic with lots of great scenery to set the mood. I try to schedule mine around sunset, and enjoy a late dinner afterwards at Narcoossee’s!

My fiancee and I celebrated our engagement at WDW in April, and the couple’s dinner at California Grill was amazing. We had late reservations so we had window seats for Wishes. What a difference the new vantage point made.
The personalized menus and champagne glasses we got to take home are sitting on our wine cabinet as a reminder of our trip.
*Sorry, I know this was a mom-centric blog post, but I just had to chime in.
Here’s another little romantic tip: Steal a kiss in Belle’s Library at Epcot. There’s never anyone in there.

Even if you do decide to bring your family along with you, use one of Disney’s childcare centers and just spend some time together.

Take a leisurely walk around world showcase (kind of like a world tour), have a romantic dinner at Narcoossees, take one night together and watch the fireworks alone, holding hands and remembering why you picked each other.

There are SO many things you can do to make your vacation a romantic one. It’s all about the little things.

Take advantage of park after hours when staying at a Disney resort. My husband and I are so excited that this year Epcot will be open until 2AM -on our anniversary- during our next trip. It’s nice to enjoy the lights, music and all Disney IS, while our daughter is asleep in her stroller :)

Having romance at WDW sounds delightful! There’s no way in heck I could go to WDW and leave the kids behind! Talk about tragedy! :-) However, I hope my husband and I can enjoy the delights of WDW and/or Disneyland once the children are grown. Thanks so much for suggestions 2-5!

salla from HI – how do you know in advance which nights Epcot will be open until 2AM? I’d love to see the dates. My husband and I are passholders, and Epcot is our favorite place to be. Thanks!

My Husband and I were honeymooners at Disney World 4th of July Weekend 2005. So romantic with all the beautiful fireworks. Loved our Resort pool and we just floated and hung out. We have taken our girls back twice but we can’t wait untill they are alittle older so we can leave them with the daycare that’s available. Wish then we had know about all the romantic resturants, but hubby had taken care of everything. Can’t wait untill we take our 4th trip in a year and half.
