Celebrate an anniversary, whether it's your first to 50th, in a place where magic is an everyday occurrence. Disney World can be romantic for anyone -- sneak a kiss in the Haunted Mansion or hold hands on the Kilimanjaro Safari -- but for an anniversary, go above and beyond the typical Disney experience with some specially planned activities. You'll pay extra for many of these experiences, but the memories will last a lifetime.
Dress up and Pose
Make your first stop of the day at the guest relations window; every Disney park has one, and you can locate it on your map. Pick up free matching "Happy Anniversary" buttons, then hit one of the souvenir shops for bride and groom mouse ear hats. Pose for photos in front of the Magic Kingdom's Cinderella's Castle and Spaceship Earth in Epcot, in the Victorian-style lobby of the Grand Floridian Resort and in any other spot that feels romantic. Hold up your original wedding photo and recreate the pose as the camera snaps.
Schedule Couple Time
Carve out some private time away from the hustle and bustle of the Disney parks. Schedule a relaxing spa treatment. The two Senses spas -- they're located at the Grand Floridian and Saratoga Springs resorts -- offer massage packages for two, while the Mandara spa at Disney's Dolphin Hotel offers a package that allows you to soak in a hydrotherapy tub with your partner before enjoying side-by-side massages. You can also book a horse-drawn carriage to take you on a ride through the grounds of one of Disney's resorts.
Plan a Swanky Dinner
Make a reservation to have at least one meal in an upscale restaurant. Enjoy French cuisine at Monsieur Paul or try Le Cellier Steakhouse, both in Epcot, or eat at one of the many romantic restaurants located at Disney hotels. At Victoria & Albert's, located in the Grand Floridian, diners eat haute American cuisine while enjoying candlelight and live harp music. For a truly memorable meal, you can book a private dinner cruise on the water surrounding the Disney resorts.
Romance Your Room
You may pay a premium for a deluxe villa at one of the Disney resorts, and can pay even more for "club-level service," which includes perks such as turndown service and access to private club lounges. However, you can also add romance to a more affordable room by bringing in your own Champagne and flowers. If you stay at a Disney resort, order treats such as flowers and chocolates to be delivered right to your room, or Disney Floral & Gifts can fill your room with flower petals, candles and gifts while you're out enjoying the parks.
