Even though we are a week past Valentine’s Day, did you know that a Disney destination can offer the perfect dreamy getaway? From fine dining to fireworks and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Walt Disney World Resort
If you are looking for a scenic experience, you can travel along the banks of the Sassagoula River in a cozy horse-drawn carriage. You can board your carriage at Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, and then enjoy a 25-minute ride down the charming pathways along the river, all while taking in the rustic beauty of the resort area. Reservations can be made by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.
For foodie couples, California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a must-do. You have several options to experience breathtaking views and delicious dishes at this award-winning restaurant. For a leisurely Sunday morning, you can relax at Brunch at the Top. Or you can have a romantic dinner prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients, and then pose for a photo on the observation deck. For an extra-enchanting evening, you can end the night with a Celebration at the Top – Savor, Sip and Sparkle, enjoying light bites and refreshments along with access to a private observation deck for the Magic Kingdom fireworks spectacular.
With its perpetual twilight ambiance, Blue Bayou is a romantic experience perfect for those looking for a flavorful meal in Disneyland Park. You can enjoy the flavors of the Big Easy surrounded by lanterns and fireflies, while watching Pirates of the Caribbean boats sail by. Bonus – you can take a ride on the classic attraction after your meal, because nothing says “romance” like a pirate adventure. If you are in search of other adventures, perhaps for your taste buds, you can also set course for other delightful dinner options at Carthay Circle Restaurant, Napa Rose or Steakhouse 55.
When the sun goes down, the lights come on at Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park, illuminating the whimsical boardwalk. You can try your hand at the Games of Pixar Pier, and if you’re lucky, you may even win your sweetheart’s heart (and an adorable prize). Or you can square off and battle for the high score in Toy Story Midway Mania!
