A note from Dad: I challenged Danny and Stephanie to write about what they thought were the top 5 most Romantic Dates at WDW. Here’s the Female Perspective from Stephanie. I thought it would be very revealing. See Danny’s response here.
I’d love nothing more than to spend Valentine’s Day with my darling hubby in WDW, so daydreaming about the perfect way to spend the holiday was absolutely no trouble at all. Depending on my mood or budget, these are my top 5 romantic dates for WDW.
For all the times we’ve been to WDW, there are still things we haven’t done! I’d dedicate Valentine’s to trying all sorts of new things! Riding Characters in Flight at Disney Springs, listening to jazz and eating beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter, checking out the Disney Pixar Short Film Festival at Epcot. Meeting Kylo Ren at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Parasailing on Bay Lake. Dining at California Grill and watching Wishes from the balcony!
Spending the day at Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian would be a perfect mid-vacation break! I’d opt for the Spa for Two package which include massages and pedicures, and add on a facial for some extra indulgence. If, like this year, Valentine’s fell on a Sunday, I think it would only be right to start the day off with brunch at Narcooses! And in either case, we’d finish with a trip to Basin White to pick up bath goodies to keep the relaxation going at home.
Around the World
I’m a huge foodie, in case you hadn’t noticed, so I’d love nothing more than to spend the entire day at Epcot’s World Showcase. We’d start in Canada, and work our way around the whole lagoon, seeing every show or ride, browsing in the shops, and sharing a snack or two in each country! Of course, matching tees are a must!
This one is a classic Disney fairytale day – although it’s definately more for my benefit than my husband’s! Since I’m a bit too old to go to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, instead we’d wear cute Disney-bounding outfits inspired by Flynn Rider and Rapunzel. Of course, we’d dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table for breakfast, where hubby would surprise me with a Proclaim Her a Princess package from Disney Floral and Gifts. After breakfast, we’d frolick in Fantasyland, meeting all the princesses and taking Photopass photos with their castles.
For something different, I’d love a Valentine’s surprise to have some up close encounters with critters at Animal Kingdom! We’d start our day with the Wild Africa Trek, then spend some time at Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo – the Musical. We’d finish the day with a delicious dinner at Jiko over at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and a sunset walk on the savannah out look there.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
