The magic of Disney has seduced many a young couple into choosing Walt Disney World for their honeymoon. Disney is far from being a child-centered destination, and the newly wedded find plenty of attractions to fill their days, from whimsical choices that ignite the child at heart, to adult options that are just for the grown-ups.

If you’re considering a Disney World honeymoon, here are some essential facts to know before your stay.

1. Disney offers a Honeymoon Registry

A Disney honeymoon is far from being a budget destination, and after all the indulgences of your wedding, you may not have much left for your vacation. Instead of worrying about where you’ll find the funds yourself, why not let your guests pay? You can set up a honeymoon registry online absolutely free. List accommodations, meals, tours, and anything else you want to include in your vacation and your friends and family can help you build the ideal honeymoon, piece by piece.

Some of the items available for the registry include:

  • Accommodations at a Disney Resort Hotel
  • A Disney Dining Plan for your stay
  • Tickets for the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Quest
  • A round of golf
  • Specialty cruises
  • Surrey bike rentals
  • Carriage or horseback rides
  • Backstage tours and experiences, like swimming with dolphins at Epcot
  • Disney gift cards for dining or shopping
  • Dinner show tickets for events like the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show at the Polynesian
  • Spa services
  • Flowers
  • Wine or champagne packages delivered to the room

2. The best restaurants book early

Your honeymoon is the perfect time to indulge in luxury meals, but the best and most romantic restaurants on property fill up early. You can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance, and for many locations you should absolutely call and book your meal on the first date that you can. For dinner shows like the Spirit of Aloha, you can book up to a year in advance.

If you want to include some of the best restaurants on property in your vacation, don’t miss Le Cellier in Epcot’s Canada, Monsieur Paul in Epcot’s France, the Plaza at the Magic Kingdom, and Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

3. Those little buttons work magic

You can pick up honeymoon buttons at your resort’s check-in desk, or at Guest Relations anywhere on property. Plan to wear these buttons everywhere you go, because you never know what delights may be in store. Restaurants typically offer a special desert or other treat for honeymooners. When Cast Members see your buttons in the park, they may just offer up special experiences. Keep your buttons in a prominent place and see what happens.

While buttons will do the trick in most cases, you can also ensure you get a little special treatment when you’re dining at table service locations by mentioning your honeymoon when you make the reservations. This will add a little note to let your server know you’re celebrating. Feel free to bring it up at your table, as well.



When my daughter went they did not do this for them. Cast members sated nothing to her or her husband. The wilderness longe the people just agnored them and went to the next couple. There room was not what they asked for. They booked over a year in advance and were very disappointed. 10 days they could have gone to Disney land and had a better time for half the money spent.

why go to Disney World if Disney Land is closer? Perhaps the staff sensed people ready to tear them apart from the get go and never be satisfied.

prehaps it was their attitude of entitlement that was showing so loudly ....

Standing ovation on that remarkably accurate comment. My fiancé and I are planning our honeymoon at Disney world, we couldn't be more thrilled. The service provided by Disney and its cast members are bar none. We don't expect the red carpet rolled out everywhere we go...
