The Best Romantic Walt Disney World Date Itinerary
1 – Start the Day Early and Check into an Onsite Resort

I recommend the Swan & Dolphin Resort as your first stop of the day.
It’s my favorite resort on the property and has great amenities such as early park access plus boat transportation to and from Epcot or Hollywood Studios all for an affordable price.
2 – Head over to Epcot for Wine Tasting Around the World
As mentioned before, staying at the Swan & Dolphin gives you quick, easy boat access to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot’s World Showcase.
This back door entrance lands you right in the middle of all the action between the United Kingdom and the France Pavilion…a great place to start your wine tasting adventure.
If you want to kick your date up a notch, then do a ThemeParkHipster must do which is to relax and unwind at Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar in Italy Pavilion.

The Mandara Spa at the Swan & Dolphin Resort is one of central Florida’s top resort spas.
It allows you to leave time at the door and offers an array of healing treatments with an ultimate rejuvenating experience for both you and your partner.
You can sometimes luck up and find a magnificent deal for it on Groupon.
4 – Enjoy Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room
After your romantic spa experience with your love, it’s time for a little “pick me up”. Luckily since you’re in a prime location, you can ride over to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa for afternoon tea.
The Garden View Tea Room is a beautiful, serene lounge overlooking the Grand Floridian gardens. It will give you a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the theme parks and have a quiet moment with your partner.
And it’s one of the best Disney World date ideas that you can easily do.
5 – Book a Fireworks Dining Experience
To cap off the romantic day at Disney, I strongly suggest booking a fireworks experience of some kind.
You can do this for FREE by grabbing a seat on the Disney’s Boardwalk or back at the Swan and Dolphin Resort where you can sit back and enjoy your nice room with the views of Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
Best Date Night Restaurants in Disney World
If you don’t have time to dedicate a whole day to dating around Walt Disney World, then try one of the best restaurants at Disney to have a date night.
- Victoria and Albert’s – Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- Todd English Bluezoo – Swan and Dolphin Hotel

Overall, a romantic date at Walt Disney World is whatever you want it to be. If riding thrill rides with your partner is romantic to you, then go all out.
However, if you’re more of a “sweep me off my feet” type of person, then Victoria & Albert’s is the ultimate Disney date night spot.
While on your romantic Disney trip, don’t forget to order room service with a romantic touch. The Disney Cast Members will hook you guys up and leave you feeling much closer to each other.
