Whether you’re visiting Walt Disney World for a honeymoon, no-kids vacation, or simply a quick romantic getaway, the resort is a wonderful vacation for spending some time with that special person. Couples’ getaways to Walt Disney World are entirely different than the usual family trips, and while it may take some extra planning to make them even more special, it will surely be worth it.
Splurge on a deluxe resort
For the ultimate romantic trip to Walt Disney World, you’ll want to save the extra money to enjoy a stay at a deluxe resort. Aside from the impressive levels of detail and theming, deluxe resorts offer the most in terms of amenities and convenience to the theme park. All the deluxe resorts are located a very short distance from one of the theme parks, and many are accessible to one of the parks by walking, boat, or monorail allowing you to bypass the buses.
Deluxe resorts also come with more dining options, including multiple table service restaurants and lounges, and more elaborate pools and fitness facilities, and in some cases spas and health clubs. They are home to more recreational offerings, and generally more small conveniences that can make your stay more comfortable and romantic for a couple’s getaway.
And on a signature dining experience
A signature dining experience does not come cheap, but if you don’t mind a little splurge in the name of romance dining at a signature restaurant can be just the thing your trip needs. (And to make your stay at a deluxe resort even more convenient, you may not even need to leave the resort to enjoy a signature dining experience!)
When choosing a signature restaurant, be sure to research menus and prices before your trip. Some restaurants may be too adventurous or out of budget, and if you are using the dining plan it may be worth doing some extra research to ensure that the meal at a signature location is worth two credits. Once you have your dining experiences narrowed down, be sure to make reservations in advance as many of these locations do fill up.
Try a backstage tour
A romantic getaway is the perfect time to try new things that you do not normally do on your regular Disney trips. A backstage tour can be the perfect way to spend time with that special someone while learning more about your favorite vacation spot. And there is a backstage tour for everyone. Whether it be learning about what goes on behind the scenes at the Seas with Nemo and Friends in Epcot, getting up close and personal with the elephants that live in Animal Kingdom, or learning everything there is to know about the Magic Kingdom (including getting a glimpse of the utilidor), you are sure to find a backstage experience you’ll both enjoy!
