Valentine’s Day At Walt Disney World

36views

In this article, our goal is to share some ideas for how to spend Valentine’s Day at Walt Disney World.

How To Plan

  1. First thing we did was check out the Extra Magic Hours schedule on the DisneyWorld.com website and then link it with our TouringPlans crowd calendar.
  2. Get an ADR at a resort, as they provide the best opportunity to get “away” from the crowds.
  3. Plan a nap…you’ll thank me! Long days are difficult to enjoy without having a change of clothes, shower and power nap!
  4. Do something that shows how much you value the time of your significant other…usually an activity that’s just the two of you.
  5. Have fun and do things off-the-beaten path!

Valentine’s Day Activities and Events

Merchandise

Every year Disney’s team that looks after the Disney Pins bring out a specialty Limited Edition options, so be sure to check the daily park schedule to see where they’re being sold in each park.

There’s also a full section on the Disney Floral and Gifts website dedicated to Valentines Day! 

Photos

Disney PhotoPass photographers are just itching at the opportunity to provide some magic with fun photos. Oh, and kissing photos are overrated…and something that you really don’t want to share on social media – so be creative! If the photographer suggests one of those, always get a few other cheesy poses and you’ll be happier later when you’re going through your options to post on Facebook!

This was by far one of the coolest things that we’ve ever done and the characters were completely shocked and surprised when we gave them hand-written valentines!

Full Disclosure

Valentine’s Day is a traditional ‘Hallmark’ holiday, where consumerism has attached itself to a date which has become something where you have to buy stuff to show how much you care about someone. We don’t subscribe to the feeling that you need to show your love by buying things. Instead, we focus on the experiences and the opportunity to spend time with the people that you care about.

That being said…

When you’re in Walt Disney World…dreams can completely come true!
