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.

3 – Return to Swan & Dolphin for a Relaxing Spa Experience

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 my favorite romantic things to do at Disney World that you can also 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 both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
