Top 5 Romantic Experiences at Walt Disney World

Have you dreamed of a romantic getaway with your sweetheart... and Mickey Mouse?  You are not alone!  Many adults and couples travel kid-free and experience a romantic side of Walt Disney World.  Here are our Top 5 ways to spend time with your sweetie at Walt Disney World.

5. Watch fireworks from a more secluded location

Main Street U.S.A might have a fabulous view of Happily Ever After, but that also means it is super crowded, not the most romantic feeling to be crowded in by people and families on all sides.  Wander over to Fantasyland, Liberty Square, or Frontierland.

4. Stroll the World Showcase

My favorite times at World Showcase are just after 11am when it opens, or late at night after the fireworks have ended.  You'll get more time to explore and things will actually be open if you start at 11am, and you will enjoy lower crowds until about 12pm as people start to finish their time in Future World and head on back for delicious lunch foods. However, we love getting a later reservation at one of the many World Showcase restaurants, and hanging out until after the fireworks with our leisurely meal.  Then, as we exit the park (which you will have to do) it's a different atmosphere at night as everything shuts down and is peaceful with little to no other guests.

3. Dine at a signature restaurant, or really splurge for Victoria & Albert's

Signature dining at Disney ranges from a classic steakhouse like Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney's Yacht Club Resort to more adventurous dining like Tiffins at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Based on your tastes and preferences, pick one that suits you and get dressed up for a nice night out.  Order a bottle of wine if you are so inclined, get that dessert - just enjoy yourself! If you enjoy fine dining, Victoria & Albert's at the Grand Floridian Resort is a real treat.  This adults-only restaurant is small and intimate, and will sure to be a night you won't forget.

2. Book a couples spa treatment

Many people don't even realize there are spas at Walt Disney World, but there are a few that offer a full range of treatments located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort, and the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Pick whichever one appeals most to you, and book a couples massage and relax!

1. Stay at a deluxe resort, order room service, and enjoy!

We often get so caught up in trying to "do it all" on vacation, so why not take some time to really enjoy each other's company and reconnect?  Book a nice room, order some room service, turn off your phones and enjoy some great company, delicious food, and some beautiful views. I'd recommend a Theme Park view at a monorail resort to throw some fireworks in, but there are lovely lake views at many deluxe resorts.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso.
