5 Romantic Valentine’s Ideas from Disney’s Floral & Gifts

posted on February 4th, 2016 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


Looking for ideas to create a reaction like this from your loved one?

Vday 2016 Blog - Hero with rose

As a Dream Maker at Disney Floral & Gifts, guests frequently ask me for tips to reveal their inner admirer at our resorts and at home. So, to help you get started, I’ve listed 5 below.

  1. Surprise them with early delivery
  2. If you struggle remembering special occasions, your loved one will enjoy receiving their bouquet on the eve of the holiday. To enhance the moment even more, include a card message such as, “I didn’t want to wait till the last petal fell to tell you how much I love you.”

Vday 2016 Blog - Romance Your Beauty

If visiting Walt Disney World Resort, consider our “Beauty & the Beast“-themed “Romance Your Beauty” bouquet. At the Disneyland Floral & Gifts we have our new Disney Dozen. At home, a luxurious bouquet of long stemmed roses will work as well.

Blog - A Wish Come True

  1. Create a two-day romantic surprise
  2. Surprise them on the eve of the holiday with a token of affection, then, on Valentine’s Day, just when they think there’s no more magic left, surprise them with an over the top display of romance.

    At Walt Disney World Resort, we created A Wish Come True – Two Day Romantic Experience to provide this unforgettable memory. At Disneyland Resort, celebrate the second day with From Mickey & Minnie with Love.

  1. Experience a Carriage Ride
  2. Create a Fairytale by booking a carriage ride at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort or Disney’s Port Orleans Resort. The driver can present your gift at the beginning of the ride, saying, “We’ve found the lady’s slipper.” Afterwards, crown her your princess with the tiara.

    While this offering isn’t available at the Disneyland Resort, you can order the glass slipper and tiara from our website and have it shipped to your home to create the same experience on a local carriage ride.

  1. Grant Them a Valentine’s Day Wish
  2. Fulfill A Magical Wish. The card sets the stage for this special moment. Once they close their eyes, wave their wand and make a wish, present the bracelet as a reminder that dreams can come true.

  1. Romance with Rose Petals
  2. After a full day in the park, have rose petals sprinkled throughout your Walt Disney World Resort room. At home, charm them with your culinary skills by cooking their favorite dinner by candlelight with rose petals sprinkled on the table and at their feet.

To learn more about the ideas above, just click on the links or speak with a Walt Disney World Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT. At Disneyland Resort, you can reach a Dream Maker at 714-781-GIFT.

And, to all my romantic friends reading this post, if you have some good ideas and tips to help bring out the inner charm in our readers, we’d enjoy reading your insight as well!
