Love is in the Air at Walt Disney World

If you’re panicking because you haven’t yet made plans made for Valentine’s Day – which, by the way, is this Saturday – don’t fret. Simply take your significant other to the magical place on earth, which can easily become the most romantic place on earth come February 14. At Walt Disney World, not only can you treat your significant other to a day of carefree fun, but the two of you can also share in unique and romantic experiences that only Disney can provide.

Whether you’ve only been dating for a short while or have been married for years, any couple can enjoy a relaxing and unforgettable morning at one of Disney’s resort spas. The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, for example, features a couple’s room where guests can enjoy specialized spa treatments with their significant other. From a Grand Romantic Couple’s Massage to a Detoxifying Body Wrap, this tandem spa experience is the perfect way to get in the mindset for a day of enjoyment and romance at Disney.

Then, it’s off to the parks for some fun with your loved one. Magic Kingdom is a particular favorite among couples; you can snuggle close to your honey during attractions like the Haunted Mansion, and feel like a kid again together as you enjoy the thrills of Splash Mountain. Then at night, the Wishes fireworks spectacular caps a day of romance – and provides the perfect backdrop for a special question, should you choose to ask it.

Epcot is also popular for twosomes, as it has many attractions that appeal to the older crowd. You’ll enjoy holding hands as you walk around and see the sights of different pavilions like Japan and Norway. Be sure to stay close to each other during dark rides like Spaceship Earth and The Seas with Nemo & Friends. And at night, grab a dessert at the Boulangerie Patisserie in France and settle down to watch IllumiNations for a lovely Valentine’s Day finale.

When the parks close down, there’s still plenty of romance to be had at Disney resorts. Enjoy a moonlit horse-drawn carriage ride together at the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, or, if it’s still early enough, an adventurous tandem parasail over Bay Lake at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. You can even go for a simple walk together on the beach or through winding forest trails.

And no Valentine’s Day is complete without a romantic and glamorous dinner. At Disney’s Contemporary Resort, the California Grill serves the best of California Fusion cuisine along with a panoramic view overlooking Magic Kingdom, perfect for watching the sunset over Cinderella’s Castle or the Wishes spectacular. Or, make a reservation for Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, where soft harp music, personalized menus, elegant china and silver, and stellar service sets the tone for a truly sophisticated and romantic dinner. Plus, every lady receives a long-stemmed red rose.

And for a meal that will really blow your date away, make arrangements to board the Grand Floridian’s Grand 1, an elegant 45-foot yacht, which provides a stunning view of Wishes along with gourmet meals and private butler service. Guests can also arrange for a private dinner on the resort’s beach.

Regardless of how you choose to spend your Valentine’s Day at Walt Disney World, you’re sure to have a magical holiday that neither you nor your partner will forget for a long time. Start planning your day of romance by booking your Walt Disney World tickets at, and get ready to sweep your loved one off their feet.
