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

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
