Specialty Pops from The Ganachery at Disney Springs Pre-Packed Box of Ganache from The Ganachery at Disney Springs

At The Ganachery at Disney Springs, you’ll find specialty ganache squares and pops decorated for Valentine’s Day—raspberry enrobed in dark chocolate and passion fruit enrobed in milk chocolate. Surprise your sweetie with a pre-packed box of ganache.

Perhaps your love’s allegiance lies with The Dark Side. Fear not, these Star Wars-inspired chocolate bars, available in both dark and milk chocolate, are the perfect way to say I love you. (I know.)

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake from Main Street Bakery at Magic Kingdom Park Black Forest Waffle from Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom Park

In my opinion, Magic Kingdom Park is one of the most romantic places at Walt Disney World Resort, though I may be biased because I met my husband there. Romance your valentine with a chocolate raspberry cupcake from Main Street Bakery, or indulge in the Black Forest waffle with vanilla ice cream at Sleepy Hollow.

Lady and the Tramp Cupcake at Disney's Hollywood Studios Chocolate Cupcake with a Strawberry-Marshmallow Center from Epcot

If cupcakes are the way to your Valentine’s heart, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has a cupcake featuring Lady and the Tramp that is paws-itively adorable. At Fountain View in Epcot, you’ll find a chocolate cupcake with a strawberry-marshmallow center, strawberry butter and a ganache drizzle sure to make your sweetie’s heart melt.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
