Planning the ultimate (late) Honeymoon - What rocks?

Hi, Fellow Disneyphiles!

After 8 years, me and my best half are spending a long weekend at WDW the second week of December.

Having only been to DL, I know I still have no idea what to expect. We are staying at the Boardwalk...SO, romantic/adventure heads, finish some of these sentences...

"You would be absolutely CRAZY to not show your lady friend the ..."

"You know most couples absolutely miss the..."

"It isn't widely known about or advertised, but you must not miss the ...."

THANKS!!!!

Hi and welcome GreatBig and congrats on your belated honeymoon! Have you decided on any ADRs? I love food so that would be the first place I would start to ensure a fantastically romantic honeymoon! California Grill or even Victoria & Alberts (if your budget can swing it) would both be spectacular options! Is there any specific price point you're willing to spend on extra special experiences, or are you looking for ideas included in your package price?

Welcome! Glad you found us. Here are my answers to two of your questions:

"You would be absolutely CRAZY to not show your lady friend the ..." Fireworks in the Magic Kingdom

"You know most couples absolutely miss the..." Fun of friendly competition at Toy Story Mania

"It isn't widely known about or advertised, but you must not miss the ..." Grey Goose Citron Slush outside of France in Epcot!

We don't have a big budget, but one or two nice nights out would be great!

LOVE the ideas...Thanks!

You could surprise her with an in-room arrangement from Disney floral, take a Wishes cruise to watch the fireworks, take a carriage ride around POR....there's tons of romance to be had in Disney! muchlove

The good news is that both the fireworks at the MK and the ride on Toy Story Mania are included with your park tickets, so no need to spend extra money to do something romantic. awesome

Romance of World Showcase after dark. Take a little extra time to explore Epcot's World Showcase at night. There's fantastic dining, and great entertainment. When you're not busy running from ride to ride soaking up the atmosphere of the different pavilions can be very romantic. Stroll the promenade hand in hand, share some sweet treats, enjoy a couple cocktails and find a spot to sit close together under the stars.

Boat ride around Crescent Lake after dark. It's tempting to just walk right back to the Boardwalk from Epcot, but the boat ride around Crescent Lake is one of my favorite Disney Transports. Sit outside in the back of the boat and ride it all the way around. The lights off of the Boardwalk signs reflect on the water and it's stunningly beautiful. The ride takes about 20 minutes, it's free, and it can be a really lovely way to finish off the night.

I hope that helps!

Coming from someone tht worked at Hollywood Studios, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights is something you do not want to miss. Seeing how you are staying at the Boardwalk, you can take the boat or walk to Hollywood Studios to experience this. The entire Streets of America section is covered in Christmas lights as "snow" falls, listening to Christmas carols having some hot cocoa and cookies, its truly a magical experience that sticks out in my mind, and its free with your park admission! Also, my fiance and I are planning on heading here for our honeymoon and we are dying to see La Nouba in DTD. Smile Have fun and enjoy!!!

I agree, the Spectacle of Lights really is something to behold. But, it makes the Christmas lights on my house look like a joke. biggrin
