Couples Spa vs. Romantic Dinner?

Which romantic escape would you rather indulge in at Disney with your sweetie? A romantic dinner for two or a relaxing couples spa treatment? How come?

I'm a foodie so I'd have to go with a romantic dinner. While I love a good spa day, I feel more apt to enjoy that by myself. When I'm at the spa, I want to relax and close my eyes and not talk. Not super romantic in my opinion. I'd rather enjoy a meal together where we can enjoy each other's company muchlove

I'm going to agree with everything that's already been said, but also expand on it. For me, relaxing over a meal is one of the best ways to spend time with the person you love, and I would argue that it doesn't necessarily have to be anywhere fancy for it to be romantic either!! Since my fiance is an extremely picky eater, we decided to forgo the typical "romantic", usually-signature restaurants at Disney (plus, California Grill is closed anyway!) but I'm sure we'll still have a wonderful, romantic time with all our choices.

I tend to agree with Kat, both the wife and I are pickey eater so an evening meal consisting of just the two of us can be just as romantic at RainForest or at Turf Club @ SSR or Flying Fish, as V&A or Cali Grille.

The meal for sure...I want to relax during a massage and if we are both quiet with the eyes closed...well, that isn't very romantic.

I'm going to follow the crowd and go with romantic meal. I LOVE food.

Also, I find meals easier on the budget than a spa experience. Even at V&A it's only about $125 per person. I would spend way more than that at a spa!

I'm going to be the dissenting voice here! biggrin Maybe I'm just incredibly lucky but I get to eat dinner out with my sweetie on reasonably consistent basis already. (It helps that we don't have babysitter issues and we live in a fantastic city for food.) So all that said, I'd love a couples spa treatment. Knowing that my partner is being pampered at the same time I am (and I don't have to do it?!) Awesome!

I'd have to agree with the majority here and say the meal. Even though we go out quite often anyway to some really nice places to eat, if we did a spa treatment together, we would both be in our own little worlds, and if we said anything to each other it would be "yeah what ever, leave me alone, I'm in heaven here!" Not that I wouldn't enjoy it, but I don't think I could call it romantic.

I think spas are a huge ripoff. I give a message as good as any maggage therapist. Just give me a jacuzzi for two and some hot oil and Mrs Colonel and we'll make our own spa. Yeah baby!

Anybody else think that spas are bogus?

I'll follow the crowd on this one. I think connecting over a superb meal say at the California Grill is chocked full of romance!

Nah Becks, you know I totally love a good Spa day! I've been thinking about this, and I guess maybe Geordon and I are just okay not talking to each other while relaxing. The massage itself may not be romantic, but the nice relaxing mood would be. When we're on vacation we eat together every meal, so unless we were going to Victoria and Alberts I'm not sure how romantic I think dinner is. Maybe my issue is that we get so little alone time just the fact that we're out together alone at all makes it romantic. ???

I would LOVE to indulge in a couples spa treatment.

Kristen, I wouldn't mind doing a couples spa treatment at all with Scrappy. I just don't know how it would be called romantic. I had an wonderful 40 min Swedish message at SSR. It was the first message I had ever had and it was incredible. Definitely something I would do again.
