My favorite color is pink. Red to me is just pink with an attitude. I love the opportunity to drape myself in crimson each Valentine’s Day. And even after (cough) 20 years together, I can always count on a bouquet of pink roses from my hubby. I have been hinting at some skating-rink-sized jewelry for years, but that’s another story. . .
But, now that I live practically a stone’s throw from the Magic Kingdom Park, I can, along with our guests, be pampered at a spa, take a romantic stroll along Disney’s BoardWalk at sunset, sail on a private Specialty Cruise of the Magic Kingdom fireworks or have an unforgettable meal at one of the east coast’s best restaurants, Victoria & Albert’s, and much more on Valentine’s Day!
Panelists on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel have made many lasting memories on Disney Parks vacations. A lot of them are romantic memories. Panelists have spent their honeymoons, renewed their wedding vows or even “popped the question” at a Disney Park. Even I love the romance of Disney and spent part of my own honeymoon here at Walt Disney World Resort.
If you’re looking for ways to add some romance to your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, panelist Doug Ingersoll (who proposed to his wife at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn as fireworks from Epcot lit up the sky!) suggests setting up a dinner reservation for two while the little ones enjoy playing at one of the Children’s Activity Centers.
Doug says, “Make it a point to have a ‘mom and dad only’ dinner, and take advantage of having some time separate from the kiddos.” He also recommends surprising your special someone with treats like chocolate covered strawberries from Disney Floral and Gifts, which can be sent right to your room.
Panelist Teronya Holmes celebrated her honeymoon by staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and encourages other honeymooners to plan for special moments together when they stay at Walt Disney World Resort. “Plan to watch the fireworks from the beach of Disney’s Polynesian Resort or take a special fireworks cruise on Bay Lake one night,” she says.
“My favorite thing to do is walk through Epcot’s World Showcase with just me and my husband if we have an evening to ourselves,” Teronya shares. “It’s just so beautiful to take in all of the sights from the different countries together.”
And for truly elaborate love birds, a vowel renewal using Cinderella’s Coach and footman may just be in order, says panelist Kim LaPaglia. “Apart from my honeymoon at the Grand Floridian, renewing my vows at the Happiest Place on Earth was the most romantically magical moment.”
What is your idea of romance with your significant other at Disney Parks?
