If your romantic vacation or honeymoon plans include Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, you might like to know a little more about some of the romantic Disney hotels close to the Magic Kingdom.
1. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: With on-site facilities for Disney weddings and an elegant plantation atmosphere, the Grand Floridian is Disney’s most romantic hotel. We loved the private white-sand beach and pool areas, and the Grand Floridian Hotel is close to the Magic Kingdom – just a 2 minute Monorail ride.
Rooms feature scenic views of the Lagoon, and there’s romantic dining at Victoria & Alberts. Although it’s certainly not cheap, we feel the grand Floridian is the best choice for Disney honeymoon vacations.
Most Romantic Disney Honeymoon Suite? The Grand Floridian Honeymoon Suites enjoy their own separate floor, private balcony and in-room jacuzzi whirlpool tub for two.
2. Disney’s Polynesian Resort: You’ll be greeted with Polynesian music and a welcome lei at this romantic Disney resort. The tropical grounds and lakeside pool immediately grab your attention outdoors, while inside live Hawaiian music fills the lush courtyard and reception area.
Dining at the resort means trying some of the South Pacific specialties offered, like Tonga Toast, mahi-mahi, or of course, the Polynesian luau. Reader’s reviews of the Disney Polynesian Resort comment favorably on the island theme rooms, and as an added plus, the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks can be viewed from the resort.
Tip: If you are on a honeymoon or anniversary at Disney World, mention it when you check in at the resort. I’ve heard reports of a few extra perks for romantic couples here on a special occasion!
3. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: You’ll love the National Park atmosphere at the Wilderness Lodge, and the clean and comfortable rooms, suites and villas come equipped with LCD TV’s. The ferry service to the Magic Kingdom is a nice way to arrive at Disney World. Romantic views of the fireworks at night can be had from some of the room balconies on the higher floors.
The Wilderness Lodge is a luxury Disney hotel catering a little more to families than the Grand Floridian or Polynesian resorts. The pool and river area features a water slide – great for parents on a romantic vacation with the kids. If you’re on a honeymoon or anniversary though, request a room in one of the wings a bit further away from the hustle and bustle of the lobby and check-in area.
