Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and love is in the air. Oh wait, that’s just churros and the distinctive smell of Pirates of the Caribbean’s bromine-enriched water. While this romantic holiday doesn’t take over Walt Disney World like Christmas or even Halloween, it can still be a magical place to celebrate with your special someone – especially if your idea of the perfect date involves good food.
If you’re looking for a complete romantic meal with the works or just a lovey-dovey dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth, you’ll find it all with a Disney World Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re planning a Valentine’s Day Disney World vacation or a local Orlando couple hoping for a little pixie dust, read on as we dig into all the tempting, limited-time offerings for 2022.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day, Disney World-Style
If you’re wondering, “does Disney World do anything for Valentine’s Day?”, get ready to fall in love all over again with the Disney World food scene – and your sweetie, of course. Yes, you can expect some particularly sweet Valentine’s Day Disney World celebrations.
Unfortunately, there isn’t an east-coast version of the Disneyland After Dark Sweethearts’ Nite. Thankfully, however, The Most Magical Place on Earth does its best to make up for that with enough special Valentine’s Day Disney World dishes, desserts and drinks to last all day long. And don’t forget the boozy cocktails to keep the passion going into the night!
Looking for something else to do besides wine, dine and woo? Disney can help you there too, thanks to undeniably romantic activities like horse-drawn carriage rides, canoodling on dark rides and thrill rides, mini-golf and more. For more dreamy things to do with your boo, get some amorous inspiration with our Disney World date night guide.
