Walt Disney World is home to some of the most cherished love stories of all time. This makes it a perfect place to create fairytale romance.

Disney for Couples: 9 Tips to Make It Great!
1. Cuddle and watch the fireworks
You can snuggle up in a hammock, or lie down on a blanket and watch the fireworks that happen every night at Disney. It’s so wonderfully romantic and you might even find yourselves making out like teens in the magic of the moment.
2. Experience wine tasting “around the world”
You can find lots to drink at Epcot’s World Showcase, that has 11 represented counties for you to explore the finest wines, beers, and other drinks of the area.
3. Snuggle up for a Disney movie viewing
Disney regularly shows viewings of their films and this can be an opportunity to experience it like never before, with the person you love most.
4. Go on a Disney cruise
It’s the ultimate couples’ cruise for Disney fans. You can enjoy all the great things about a Disney cruise together, and you can also enjoy everything you love about Disney, with the person you love.
5. Recreate a movie scene
There are many opportunities around the park to recreate a movie scene. There are even Disney photographers around to capture that special moment for you.
6. Spend some time in your room
While there is a lot to see and do around the parks, you can enjoy a romantic time right in your room. Disney also allows you to leave a special basket or gift inside your room for when you arrive, if you arrange it ahead of time.
At the Grand Floridian Spa, sweethearts receive the royal treatment in a “couples room”, featuring massages and facials especially for lovebirds. For even more intimacy there is a couples instructional massage that includes take-home notes, aromatherapy body oil and tips on relaxation.
7. View Disney Fireworks from a Private Boat
Couples looking for that magic spark (or a whole sky of sparks) should book a Disney Fireworks Cruise and watch the fireworks from a private boat. Prices start at around $399 an hour and ships fit 10 guests (or just two). Soda and snacks are provided and festive banners and balloons are also included in the cost.
8. Explore the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground
An ideal place for a romantic adventure for couples is at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Sweeties can rent a kayak at the Bike Barn and float through serene wildlife. Animals lovers should head to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch and take a pair of ponies for a stroll. In the evening, horse-drawn carriage rides leave from Pioneer Hall. Lovers can cuddle through the 750-acres of woodland resort.
9. Eat at Disney’s Most Romantic Restaurants
Disney has many top-notch restaurants, and much to contrary belief, there are not characters at all of them! While families with children are prevalent at most dining establishments, there are quieter places for lovers to share a plate of pasta “Bella Notte” style.
For dining within the parks, the best bets are in Epcot’s World Showcase. Monsieur Paul is the priciest option, but transports eaters to a serene table in the heart of France. Le Cellier Steakhouse, located in the depths of the Canada Pavilion, offers low lighting and less screaming children than many of the other restaurants. The food is delicious at both locations. Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s Brown Derby also offers a quiet getaway. Diners travel back to the heyday of Hollywood while feasting on the famous Cobb Salad.
To guarantee a more adult environment, couples should book a table at Victoria & Albert’s at The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. It may cost a week’s pay, but it is the meal of a lifetime. Cítricos, located next door is the cheaper option. Though less expensive, the food is exquisite. Other great romantic bets are Story Book Dining at Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge, Jiko at The Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club. The Contemporary Resort’s California Grill provides a truly magical evening. Boosting a beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom, diners should arrive just before Wishes is scheduled to blast off.
With these 9 tips, you can make Disney for couples great. If you’re planning a Disney trip with your special someone, you’re going to have a blast!
