Are you taking a Walt Disney World Honeymoon in 2013? We honeymooned at Walt Disney World in 2010, and it was a great time. Scratch that–an unbelievably amazing time. This is unsurprising, as Walt Disney World is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world, and for good reason. Sarah and I, as you probably guessed, are Walt Disney World vets, so we knew exactly what we wanted to do for the trip. However, if you’re not as familiar with Walt Disney World, here are our tips to make the most of your Walt Disney World honeymoon (or “Disneymoon” as we like to call our honeymoon).
1. Splurge On Your Hotel
First and foremost, this means staying on property. Granted, you could find a very luxurious resort off-property, but for convenience’s sake, which will be important for the other tips, stay on property. We highly recommend staying at one of the Epcot Area Resorts: BoardWalk, Beach Club, Yacht Club, or the Swan and Dolphin Resorts. These resorts are within walking (or boat) distance of two theme parks, Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and are a walk plus a monorail ride to the Magic Kingdom. These resorts are also within walking distance of one another, and also offer exceptional dining options, including Flying Fish Cafe, Kouzzina, Yachtsman Steakhouse, and many excellent non-Disney options in the Swan and Dolphin hotels. Most importantly, they’re within walking distance of Epcot’s World Showcase, which is a great place to spend time on your honeymoon. There’s nothing magic about a rental car on your honeymoon, unless you share a mutual love for traffic and road rage, so avoiding conventional forms of transportation on your honeymoon can really enhance the trip.
