At Disney Parks, we believe in happy endings – and we’re also fond of fairy tale beginnings. Whether you’re looking for a sweet spot to make a proposal or just a quiet nook to wish upon a star, there are some great places to be with the one you love. Here are five more romantic locations at the Disneyland Resort (we shared five others earlier today).
Brisa Courtyard at Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa – This forested oasis is just steps from the Downtown Disney District, outside the luxurious hotel. If you’re planning a visit to this location, consider including a couples retreat to the hotel spa or a romantic dinner for two at the award-winning Napa Rose restaurant.
Paradise Pier Observation Deck – Located in Disney California Adventure park and overlooking the bright lights and bustling fun of Paradise Pier, this location sits above Paradise Bay and is adjacent to Ariel’s Grotto. If your mind is turning to a proposal, consider popping the question during the Love sequence of “World of Color,” just as the romantic melody of “So Close” from Walt Disney Pictures’ “Enchanted” accompanies a montage of Disney’s most romantic film moments.
Mark Twain Riverboat – If your fancy turns toward the historical, take your loved one back in time aboard this famous steamship at Disneyland park. From the top deck you can share a romantic moment with your First Mate and command a great view of Frontierland and New Orleans Square in the process.
Wine Country Trattoria at Disney California Adventure Park – Indulge your inner foodie with a table for two at this beautiful vineyard-inspired restaurant. If your evening includes a proposal, be sure to let cast members know ahead of time so they can help you make your special moment a perfect pairing.
Blue Bayou Restaurant – Nestled in the world-famous Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, this unique Disneyland park restaurant is romantic and full of ambience. With the soft bayou sounds accompanying your meal, you’ll feel a world away in this cozy corner of Disneyland park.
Here are some great tips if your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort includes a special romantic date or popping the question. If you are at a PhotoPass location, alert the attendant to capture your big moment professionally. If you choose a more secluded location, consider alerting the attraction or any nearby cast member to assist you with your personal camera, or help provide you a moment of privacy. Cast members at any of the Resort’s table-service restaurants are a great resource, too. Make your reservations well in advance and then ask to speak with a manager to assist in coordinating a special moment or table-service dinner proposal.
