For some, a romantic trip to Disney World is a chance to relive a special holiday or go back to the place where they first met. For others, it’s an opportunity to make new memories with someone they love, and the team at Disney World take pride in creating romantic settings for lovers, young and old.
There are romantic carriage rides, speciality cruises and fireworks, moonlight walks and garden swings, and a long list of cosy meals for two to enjoy. Those staying at the Disney Resorts can enjoy spa treatments for two, while those in the one or two bedroom units at the Disney Vacation Club Resort can share a Jacuzzi without leaving their room.
Disney Packages Tailor Made for Proposals
Some of the most unforgettable romantic Disney getaways involve couples arriving at Disney in love, and leaving engaged. One popular place to pop the question is in Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom theme park.
Disney has created a Magical Proposal Package, which includes dinner at Cinderella’s Royal Table with a special Chocolate Slipper Dessert. Giving the presentation of the engagement ring a Cinderella twist, the package also includes an engraved Glass Slipper to reveal the ring in.
Disney’s photographers are on hand to capture the moment and take stunning shots around the park as part of the package. Prince Charmings who would like to take advantage of the Magical Proposal Package need to book at least 7 days in advance by calling 407-824-4477.
For those who want to go it alone, it’s still possible to get a romantic Disney photo without crowds of strangers spoiling the shot. Simply head to the photo spot to the right of Cinderella’s Castle. Here, couples can stand in front of a railing and enjoy an uninterrupted view of the classic Disney castle.
The Walt Disney Florist is always happy to suggest other ways to set the romantic tone, and can create a bouquet worthy of the big question. The Florist can be reached on 407-827-3505.
