One Must Do

My husband and I were married six years ago, we never had a honeymoon due to budget constraints. The trip we are planning for June will be the honeymoon we never had.

Is there any one must do thing we should try to squeeze in?

One of the most compelling things I think of is the fireworks cruises. It may be too tight a window to get one now, but I think those are amazing. They're also a little pricey though.

Several people on here have mentioned laying on the Polynesian beach and watching wishes. I particularly like some of the picnic approaches mentioned here.

One personal favorite is classic rides during fireworks as well. I love riding Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad while the fireworks are going, but that can be tricky, especially in June.

On the non-fireworks front -- I think Jiko is a great place to eat for a romantic meal. Be sure to ask for a seat that isn't in the row on the left where you're right next to other people.

If you're into carriage rides they have those, although I'm not sure where they fall on the romance schedule.

My pick would be the fireworks cruise though. Illuminations is my favorite.

I would say fireworks cruise for sure. We did the Wishes cruise on our recent anniversary trip and it was worth every penny. Don't tell my wife, but I think I'm going to book one for our next trip too (was supposed to be a special occasion thing, but it was so much fun I want do to the Illuminations one next time).

I would agree with a romantic dinner; Jiko is fantastic. Also, if you CAN get a fireworks cruise, that's a great experience. They are expensive, though.

Watching Wishes from the Polynesian Resort beach is very romantic -- I love that idea. Smile

Fireworks cruises are great, but in addition to being expensive they're almost impossible to get. I know it's cliche but I'd really recommend trying the California Grill. The food is pretty good and seeing the Magic Kingdom and environs from that view is just awesome. If you want to make it less expensive you can just go up to the bar and get an appetizer and enjoy the view.

Great idea. Head up there for a drink in the bar and watch Wishes from the viewing deck clapping

You're going to have such a great trip! I like all the suggestions above, and I'd add that you should take a stroll around the Boardwalk at night. To see the Yacht and Beach Clubs and the Boardwalk all lit up is beautiful. Plus, you can head over to see Illuminations.

Romantic is so tricky with WDW lovers. We find some things romantic that no one else would. Do you like unconventional romantic ideas? silly

Curling up in a hammock just about anywhere is pretty romantic. They have them at coronado springs, the poly, the contemporary, caribbean beach, and others.

Also I always find it romantic to go watch the tops of wishes from the Wilderness Lodge beach. There's never anybody down there.

Ooh! Is parasailing romantic? I think it might be...

Also, if you guys are into couples massages, you can do those as well.

We like "hiking" in the nice quiet woods between Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness. Hiking isn't everyone's idea of romance, but we love it.

LIFL, you guys will really enjoy this, I think. Lots of animals about. We saw a few deer on our last trip while "hiking."

Sounds great, I'm really looking forward to it. DW said even though this isn't our 'big trip' and is going to be more relaxing, she still wants some s'prises. So, there will be some relaxing ones, some sweet ones, and a few big-ish ones.

It's kind of nice to walk out there. I like walking around Fort Wilderness a lot. I'd like to stay there someday.
