Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World is a romantic place any time of year, but on Valentine’s Day, it is what romantic dreams are made of. This year you and your partner can fall in love all over again with several of Disney’s Valentine’s Day festivities like a special Valentine’s Day massage package at Senses - A Disney Spa. Once you’re nice and relaxed keep the romance going with your own Cinderella moment with a horse-drawn carriage ride either through Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground or along the pathways of Port Orleans - Riverside and the banks of the Sassagoula River. Or take a cruise aboard The Venezia, a 40-foot Italian water taxi that launches from Disney Springs and sails the waters of Lake Buena Vista, complete with chocolate-covered strawberries and a champagne toast! And of course enjoy a romantic meal with one of the Orlando theme park’s many Valentine’s Day menus at The Edison at Disney Springs, Narcoossee’s and Citric at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club.
Nothing quite says Valentine’s Day like a box of chocolates. This year, Universal Orlando invites you to treat your loved one to some of the most decadent and fun chocolate concoctions in Orlando at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium. Savor artisanal milkshakes with such flavors as Chocolate 5x, Bacon Brittle and Red Velvet. Feast on a giant sundae for two with flavors like S’mores, Salted Caramel Flan and Chocolate Brownie Bark. And of course you can also pair your chocolate with a delicious dinner at the Emporium.
Foodies will love celebrating Valentine’s Day at SeaWorld Orlando’s Seven Seas Food Festival.
