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.
