If you are considering going to Disney for Valentine’s Day, your anniversary or honeymoon, make sure to plan some special moments to ensure a date night that you will not soon forget.
Here are a few of my tips for a memorable Magic Kingdom date.
Walk Down Main Street U.S.A.
Take some time to discover the shops on Main Street U.S.A.
Be silly and try on some hats, find some souvenirs for your loved ones…maybe a keepsake for your own collection. The products that each store carries varies and includes collectables, hats, Christmas ornaments, baked goods, jewelry and t-shirts. Have a blast and make sure to get your photo taken on while on Main Street with the castle in the background!
I Can Show You the World
Soar high in the sky like Aladdin and Princess Jasmine over the bazaar in Frontierland on the Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride. For a truly remarkable experience, plan your ride during the Wishes Fireworks display… or if you want to really impress your sweetie… ride after dark and quietly play, “A Whole New World” on your iPod or phone as you fly!
Get Cozy on Dark Rides
The Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion are both eerie rides that are perfect for snuggling or holding hands. Pirates also has a neat gift shop at the end that is fun for some interactive window shopping. I can’t help myself when there are pirate hats around…I have to try them on! Remember to keep that camera handy for some great candid shots!
Take a Stroll on Tom Sawyer Island
This site is very easy to skip with so many other incredible attractions in the Magic Kingdom. It is however, a great escape from the bustle of the park. Take a motorized raft over to the island and spend some time exploring! From caves to a fort…even an underground escape tunnel… the island is the perfect place to stroll, chat…or sit for a few minutes to catch up.
Got a Competative Streak?
Check out the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade or the Tomorrowland Arcade. Try to beat one another’s scores or jump into the photo booth at the Tomorrowland Arcade for some funny pics to take home! Both arcades require additional cash to play.
Fireworks Just for Two
Wishes is the spectacular of fireworks that occurs nightly at the park. The best places to view the fireworks are either in front of the castle or on one of the bridges in Tomorrowland. Buy a popcorn or sweet treat to share while you are enjoying the light display with your Valentine.
Make sure to end your evening with another photo to commemorate your special day….and pick up a Mickey balloon on the way out of the park.
Wishing you a magical Valentine’s Day!
