Spend Valentine’s Day at Disney

February 4th, 2016

Romance is all around, and there’s nothing like celebrating Valentine’s Day at Disneyland. Historically, there are shorter lines in February than any other month of the year, so you can count on an intimate outing with your loved ones. The Downtown Disney District has different special events, all love-themed of course, throughout the month and especially on the big day itself. However, this V-Day is right before President’s Day, so many travelers will be making the most of their three-day weekend.

Nothing pairs with the adrenaline rush of a thrill ride like some fine dining. Luckily, Disneyland has gourmet fare down to an art. Go to the Alfresco Tasting Terrace, one of the few bars in the park where the views are phenomenal and the setting is romantic. The Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue is a favorite for couples and families who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.

The Perfect Evening

Carnation Cafe is a sweet spot for a snack, brunch, or to indulge in desserts. Try Carthay Circle Lounge, another restaurant serving adult beverages, for light bites in a cozy setting. Cove Bar is another prime choice, where romance blossoms and the cocktails are divine.

Fantasmic! dining packages are always a great idea so you can enjoy dinner and a show in one fell swoop. When you think romance this year, think Disney—it’s where fairytales come true!
