Admittedly, this article is inspired by my own life, as my husband and I will soon be celebrating 5 years of marriage! Over those five years we have taken several trips to Walt Disney World – and we even vacationed there for our honeymoon! We love getting to spend time together at the Disney Parks, and it’s a great place to go with your significant other to celebrate your wedding/honeymoon, engagement, or anniversary. How can you make your Disney trip special and romantic? Read on to find out!
Wear It Proudly: You’ll definitely want to pick up your Disney celebration buttons as soon as you arrive – you can get them at your WDW Resort, or at any of the Parks too! They have birthday, engagement, anniversary, honeymoon, and generic “I’m celebrating!” versions for you to choose from, and you’ll be surprised at how much attention you receive just for wearing them! Cast members and other guests will congratulate you on your celebration – and sometimes you get perks for wearing them too (though not always). Even if you don’t love attention, you should still wear the pins and let the world know what you’re celebrating – it’s nice to be reminded how special these milestones are, and the attention is infectious – you can’t help but have a better day and smile more because of it!
Have It Delivered: Want to surprise your sweetie with something special? Then check out Disney Floral and Gifts – where you can order flowers, gift baskets, and much more to be delivered to your WDW Resort room. They will customize gifts and can cater to pretty much any request, so if you’ve got something specific in mind they can definitely help you create your vision. What better way to end a long day at the Parks than returning to your resort and seeing a beautiful bouquet of roses, or a room fully decorated for your birthday?
Wine And Dine: One of the most amazing things about vacationing at WDW is the FOOD – they have tons of restaurants that offer all kinds of cuisines, and many of them are the perfect place for you and your beloved to celebrate your anniversary/honeymoon/engagement. If you’re looking for a place with a great view of the Magic Kingdom Fireworks, then the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is for you – amazing wine list, fresh sushi and amazing steak, and an upscale atmosphere that is perfect for a cozy dinner for two. Another great choice is the Flying Fish Café at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort– the menu is always innovative and full of amazing seafood dishes, and once you finish your meal, a stroll along the lit up boardwalk is the perfect post-dinner activity!

Sweeten The Deal: Cake is one of the most classic ways to celebrate almost any occasion – and should you wish to indulge your sweet tooth while at WDW, there are plenty of options for you. From ordering a cake from one of the bakeries, to contacting one of the restaurants ahead of time and seeing what cake options they have – it’s easy and painless, and a great way to surprise your honey! Check out more info on cake ordering here. Another way to spoil your sweetie with sweets is to attend the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party – where you can go dine on a buffet full of delicious desserts while enjoying special (unobstructed, up close, and VIP style!) seating for the Magic Kingdom’s nightly Wishes Fireworks Spectacular – what could be better?
Say Cheese: One thing you’ll want to make sure of is that you’re taking PLENTY of “photo op” breaks during your trip – what better way to look back on such a great vacation with your one and only than with amazing pictures? If you aren’t too good at taking selfies, you can always ask passerby to snap a photo for you, or you can use the Disney Photopass service – where you can have Disney Cast Members take your photo, which are then loaded to an online account where you can view/order prints and make photo gifts too! Cell phone, ipad/tablet digital camera, film camera (my husband’s preferred photography method!) – doesn’t matter the method, as long as you get the chance to capture the memories of your time together
Celebrating your anniversary, engagement, or honeymoon is always a treat – and being able to do so at WDW makes it even more special! Hope you get the chance to take your other half to WDW someday – and that you enjoy spending time with them at the Happiest Place On Earth!
