If you’re looking for a romantic weekend getaway, check out Disney World.
There’s tons of romance at Disney World: luxurious hotels, delicious food and drink, spas, and of course, plenty of fun for 2.
Still don’t believe me? Check out my guide to Disney World for couples.
Planning a trip to Disney World for couples
Disney World, and Disney parks and travel in general, are the top of the top when it comes to delighting guests and creating unforgettable experiences.
Given the amount of attention and detail Disney puts in, Disney World for couples can be done quite easily.
The first thing you want to do is make your hotel, dining and spa treatment reservations as far in advance as possible.
Selecting the right hotel and restaurants can make or break the romantic vibe you’re aiming for.
My top 2 hotel picks at Disney World for couples are the Port Orleans Resort – Riverside or the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Both of these resorts boast a romantic vibe and multiple activities for adults.
In addition to booking your hotel and dining reservations in advance, I recommend getting the Memory Maker photo package.
This add-on is often discounted if you book it in advance, which means you’ll have more money to put towards a nicer hotel, a fancy dinner, or a spa treatment.
With the Memory Maker package, you’ll receive all the photos from rides and photographers around the park.
Plus, you can say goodbye to selfie sticks and fiddling with your phone or digital camera.
You’ll be able to stay present in the moment and enjoy the quality time with your love much easier when you don’t have to think about recording your memories!
Day 1: A romantic dinner for 2
Check into your hotel and get ready to have fun!
If you’re staying at Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, take the ferryboat to Disney Springs for dinner at The BOATHOUSE® or Morimoto Asia.
After dinner, return to the resort for a nightcap at River Roost or take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride along the Sassagoula River.
If you’re staying at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, stroll over to Victoria & Albert’s for dinner.
After dinner, have a nightcap at Mizner’s Lounge or take a stroll around the impressive grounds.
Feeling adventurous? Do a monorail bar crawl instead! Hop on the monorail and get off at each stop for a drink or bite to eat. Continue until you’ve hit up each stop on the monorail.
Day 2: Test your teamwork at Magic Kingdom
Head over to Magic Kingdom for breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
If you’re not a big breakfast fan, grab a pastry or bagel and an iced coffee at the Main Street Bakery.
Spend the day testing your teamwork skills at A Pirate’s Adventure ~ Treasure of the Seven Seas or by playing Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.
If you’re more interested in learning more about the park together, join the Keys to the Kingdom tour instead.
After some fun, grab a snack to share at Gaston’s Tavern, Aloha Isle, or Sleepy Hallow. Head back to your hotel for a nap or dip in the pool.
Day 2: Rides and fireworks at night
After you’ve freshened up after your nap or pool break, head back to the Magic Kingdom.
Hold on to your honey and hit up all the thrill rides: Space Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain.
If you’re more into nostalgic fun, try Mad Tea Party, Jungle Cruise, Prince Charming Regal Carousel, and a ride around the park on the Walt Disney World Railroad.
For dinner, head to Be Our Guest or Tony’s Town Square Restaurant (Lady & the Tramp‘s favorite!).
Afterward, head over to Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise for tasty treats and a unique view of the Happily Ever After fireworks display.
After the fireworks cruise, head back to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.
For you night owls, head over to Disney Springs for a nightcap. Or if the park is open extra late that night, take advantage of the extra time and hit up a few more rides.
Day 3: Brunch, shopping & spa time
If you’re staying at Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, take the ferryboat over to Disney Springs for the Sunday Gospel Brunch at Crossroads.
After a leisurely brunch at Crossroads, shop to your heart’s content or check out Characters in Flight for a mock hot air balloon ride.
If shopping’s not your thing, head back to the resort and rent a tandem bike or lounge at the pool.
If you’re staying at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the waterfront brunch at Narcoossee’s is a must.
Afterward, treat yourself to the Spa for Two package, an 80-minute massage combined with a 50-minute pedicure for you and your honey, at Senses.
