Florida honeymoons combine thrilling theme parks with relaxing sandy beaches, which is why each and every year, thousands of newlyweds choose to spend the first moments of their next chapter together at Walt Disney World Resort.
Although this magical land has its obvious adventurous and romantic attractions, we’ve rounded up the best ways to make the most of your honeymoon, from the best packages to the best dining options available to you during your stay. So, here are Orlando Villa Holidays’ top tips on how to make the most of your romantic honeymoon to Disney:
Take advantage of the ‘Just Married’ buttons
As newlyweds, it’s natural to want to shout about your marriage and feel special during your honeymoon. This is no different when holidaying in Florida, and Disney helps you show off your newlywed status to every visitor, with the simple addition of the ‘Just Married’ buttons available at the park for newly-married couples.
Whether you want to wear these for memorable photos while exploring the park, or just to embrace your new status as a married couple, these buttons are a great way to continue the excitement of your recent wedding. Alternatively, purchase some of the famous Bride and Groom Mickey ears from the gift shop when you arrive, or online in advance.
Divulge in the Disney Dining Plan
For exquisite meals, night after night, opt for the Disney Dining Plan before venturing on your holiday to Florida. A honeymoon is all about indulging in the luxuries that you would usually steer away from, so treat yourself to this added extra, as you’ll benefit from it for the duration of your special getaway.
What’s great about the Disney Dining Plan is it removes time spent budgeting and tallying up the cost of each meal every day. Instead, this package allows you to purchase vouchers for meals ahead of your stay, which you can then exchange for eligible snacks and meals of your choosing during your holiday, removing the need to worry about the cost of your meals. This means you can simply enjoy your first holiday together as a married couple, with no stresses and complete ease when it comes to eating during your stay. This dining plan also means that each night you are served sumptuous meals and more importantly, you have reserved seats at the table.
Cast members ensure you receive special treatment as a newly-wed couple, too, ranging from special seating with beautiful window views and romantic settings, or special and personalised desserts crafted just for you two. This makes the Disney Dining Plan a particularly good option for honeymooners, so why not treat yourself to the Deluxe Dining Plan for an added luxury on your honeymoon, providing you with three meals a day and two snacks, too?
Enjoy the Magic Kingdom Park Fireworks Dessert Party together
To truly feel special during your Disney trip, plan time to partake in this extravagant party which will provide you and your special someone with everlasting memories. Couples can enjoy the party of a lifetime, all while experiencing a diverse host of scrumptious desserts.
The Tomorrowland Terrace Party is extra special, offering honeymooners a designated seat and table to sit at while enjoying the magical firework show. Or if you’d prefer, opt for the Plaza Garden Party, which provides guests with an outdoor view of the incredible firework show instead, with specific areas offering tables of desserts to enjoy before admiring this spectacular event happening above you. Alternatively, guests can choose to enjoy the third party - providing reserved spots in the viewing area, followed by a selection of delectable desserts.
Enjoy a relaxing couple’s massage at Sense Spa
Spend some time and money on yourselves and enjoy an additional wedding present - a rejuvenating couple’s massage. After all, Walt Disney World Resort may be about thrilling rides and character dinners, but the resort itself also offers the state-of-the-art Sense Spa. Here, you can both completely unwind and spend some quality time together, away from the hustle and bustle of the park itself.
Make everlasting memories - pay for Disney Memory Maker
The Memory Maker package is an essential option when honeymooning in Walt Disney World Resot in Florida; this professional Disney PhotoPass service means you and your husband/wife can feel like it’s your wedding all over again, thanks to this personal photography experience.
What’s great about this popular honeymoon photo package is that newlyweds don’t just take home print copies of the adventures they embark on, but are provided with professional-standard digital downloads to keep on phones or tablets for eternity, too. This service may be an additional cost to your holiday (depending on the Walt Disney trip package you opt for), but it’s certainly worth it since couples don’t have to rely on others to take personal couple photos during their trip.
Even better, at select locations at Walt Disney World Resort, the Disney Memory Maker package provides access to photography in select locations, during rides together and special character dining photos, too. Enjoy photoshoots on the likes of Space and Splash Mountain, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Rock ‘n Roller Coaster and Expedition Everest. Not forgetting the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which provides on-ride photos and videos.
So, ensure you add this bundle onto your getaway; once you return home, you can frame your Disney memories for a lifetime, or share these photos with everyone who attended your wedding, using social media.
With all of these luxuries and more on offer, there is every reason to book a Walt Disney World Resort honeymoon and enjoy the next chapter of your life together with a world of options to choose from.
