What’s romantic at Disney? What can a non-Disney fan enjoy at Disney?

I get this question ALOT. Especially when Chase (my husband) and I decided to go on a honeymoon to WDW. Sure it’s a more popular idea than it was in 2015, but some folks still don’t get it.

Chase doesn’t dislike Walt Disney World, but he also isn’t the Disney super fan I am. He doesn’t enjoy meeting Characters, a portion of the rides aren’t his thing. So what keeps him coming back? (No it’s not just me begging)

Today is our 10 year dativersary. I interviewed Chase last week to get his perspective on what a non Disney fan enjoys at Disney, on what made our Honeymoon romantic. Here’s what he said.

Walt Disney World is more than just theme parks. It’s a true resort.

When you choose to go on a honeymoon, or any sort of adults only romantic trip at WDW. You can live in a bubble, you do not have to deal with the real world.

That’s what made our first trips to WDW memorable. If you’ve met my husband you know he works a lot (all the time). WDW became a place we could shut out the real world, no driving, no traffic, no errands. Just us.

Disney is home to some amazing restaurants.

Sure theme park food gets a bad wrap, but the restaurants at Disney Springs and the Resorts are some of the best in the world.

• Maya Grill- Coronado Springs

•Trattoria- Boardwalk Resort

• Citricos- Grand Floridian

•Toledo- Coronado Springs

• O’Hana- Polynesian Village Resort (this one has fireworks views)


All romantic restaurants that don’t require a park ticket.

Speaking of skipping park tickets I recommend at last 2 park free days on a romantic trip. Spend time resort hopping, rent a surrey bike or a boat and explore the property. Ride the skyliner at night. Hang by the pool. Explore your hotel room 😉

For the most romantic (and least crowded) experience book a moderate or a deluxe resort. These are the most romantic resorts at WDW.


  • Coronado Springs
  • Port Orleans Riverside
  • Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Grand Floridian

So what does a non-Disney Fan enjoy about the theme parks?

Say hello to Epcot

Epcot is the most romantic park. I will die on this hill. Try delicious foods, explore the festivals, walk around the world showcase, get a cocktail. This is the adult park. I love walking around the showcase with a drink in my hand just chatting with Chase. Epcot is so beautiful at night! Pick a spot. Split a dessert and enjoy Spaceship Earth as she lights up the sky.

If your partner is worried that a celebration spent at Disney will lack romance, send them this blog. We’ve celebrated our honeymoons, engagement, and every anniversary except one at WDW. Each time we come home feeling relaxed and connected.

Bottom line: there is way more to WDW than it’s 4 theme parks.
