The Most Romantic Things To Do At Walt Disney World

As long time (1971) annual ticket holders Barbara and I have stayed and eaten and done most everything that we fancy or can afford to do at a visit to Walt Disney World.  This list probably reflects our desire to escape some of the crowds and noise that is part of the world’s largest family entertainment complex.  This list is not in any order for we each have our own passions:

Dine at Albert and Victoria’s, WDW’ most expensive but highlight restaurant, located at the Grand Floridian.  The ultimate thrill is to get seated in the kitchen. Each table gets its own “Albert and Victoria”, your own personalized menu, and a unique meal.  Reservations must be made months in advance BUT put yourself on a reserve list.  We have actually gotten in with two days notice.

Dine at a window table and watch the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks. I still prefer the 15th floor California Grill at the Contemporary for its closer to the fireworks (although screwed) and they have an amazing outdoor viewing deck.  Good but distant views from window seating at Ohana at Polyneisian Resort and Narcoossees at Grand Floridian.

Looking for most romantic “private” fireworks? The new Bora Bora Bungalows  at Polynesian Resort have terraces with hanging wicker chairs and personal plunge pools to watch the fireworks.  This is an expensive room.

Get some picnic food and watch an outdoor Disney classic movie under the stars at Fort Wilderness Campground.

Take a horse drawn carriage at night at Port Orleans Riverside Resort down the waterway toward Disney Springs.

 You and your partner spend a few hours together at the Mandara Spa at the Dolphin or the Senses Spa at Grand Floridian.  The spa at Sarasota Springs is also good but not convenient to many WDW visitors.

The Grand Floridian has Private Dining with a Butler.  It can be room service but arrangements can be made for other locations at the sprawling resort.

How about wine tasting?  Try the Tutto Gusto Wine Celler at Epcot’s Italy or the Chef’s Wine Tasting Dinner at the Flying Fish Café at Boardwalk Resort or the Wednesday wine tasting at Jiko at Animal Kingdom Resort.

Outdoor people should consider renting two kayaks and going around Bay Lake (not Seven Seas Lagoon).  In the middle is Discover Island which was once an attraction and has a small beach.

Coming to Disney with other couples or friends?  Rent a tracker pontoon boat for eight or ten guests to see the fireworks from a boat.  Actually combine this with Private Dining and eat a classic meal while on your private boat.
