Happily Ever After, A Disney Honeymoon


My husband and I decided to honeymoon in Walt Disney World over 10 years ago.  Even though honeymooning in Walt Disney World is very popular, we still got quizzical looks from friends and family who wondered why in the world two adults would go to the house of mouse sans children.  (Clearly they’ve underestimated the romance of watching fireworks behind the castle with the love of your life.)  For those of you considering an adults-only vacation to a Disney Park, here are a few reasons why we loved our honeymoon and some pointers for you to enjoy a kid-free vacation:

 Lady and the Tramp paw prints.
      1.  It’s the best of both worlds.  We are not “lay by the pool every day for a week” kind of vacationers, but we do try to maintain a balance to our schedule.  We loved being able to get up early to enjoy the attractions and embrace our young-at-heart sides.  Then in the evenings we could relax more and made sure to do things outside of the hustle and bustle of the parks.  Some couples might schedule something special like a spa treatment or take a carriage ride around Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter.  We’re pretty low key, so our favorite thing to do in the evenings was simply have a nice dinner. 

      2.  Superb dining.  We love our food.  Most of our vacation plans, Disney or otherwise, tend to revolve around the unique dining experiences that our destination has to offer.  After a tiring day in the Florida heat we loved being able to go explore a new resort, take a few minutes to relax in one of the lounges, and then have a leisurely dinner.

      3. No need for commando touring.  It is nice to have a basic plan for the day, but one of my favorite things about our honeymoon was that we were able to just go with the flow.  This is a lot easier to do with just two adults as opposed to the whole family in my experience.  Less people to work around—no nap times to worry about, no meltdowns if one wants to stop and watch a show, no strollers and bags to schlep around.  Somehow we ended up in Epcot nearly every single day “just because,” (because that is where the best food and drinks are!), which I’m sure we wouldn’t have been able to do if we were trying to please the needs of all our other family members.

4. Cast Members make you feel special.  I know celebrations are a dime a dozen at the Disney Parks now, but that’s not how you feel if you’re the one celebrating.  Everywhere we went people congratulated us.  Sometimes we got a special dessert with dinner and once we even got a card signed by every single server in the restaurant.  Upon returning to our room from the parks one afternoon we found an autographed card from Cinderella and Prince Charming wishing us well and a bunch of balloons.  Your experience may vary, but the point is that Disney often goes out of their way to make your celebration a trip to remember.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

During the work, the walkway alongside the castle is restricted, and the crane may be visible from Main Street U.S.A.

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
