Welcome to those of you joining me from Frontierland Station and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail.
There are many things you can celebrate multiple times at Disney World like anniversaries and birthdays, but honeymoons only happen once (of course you can take your spouse on multiple other “honeymoons” but there is only one first one). My wife, Carly, and I planned on a Disney vacation for our honeymoon from the get go, but we wanted to do something different. So we opted for a Disney Cruise Line land and sea voyage. We did a 4-night cruise on the Disney Dream and then 3 nights at WDW. It was incredible! Truly one of the best trips I have been on and probably one of the best I will ever go on. I could sit here and do a trip report on that vacation, but I could write 20 pages of details that we enjoyed on the trip. Instead I will give you a few tips about honeymooning at Disney. The plus is that they will include both Disney Cruises and Walt Disney World. So here they are:
As I have already said, we splurged on things that we would never do if it wasn’t a very special occasion. This is a tough one for us Disney geeks out there, but rack your brain for something that is new and different to try. The reason we chose a Disney cruise is not because we had never been on a Disney cruise before, it was because we had never been on a cruise at all! Everything about it was new for us. When we got to Disney World, we stayed at the Polynesian hotel, a hotel that I had always wanted to stay at growing up, but could never afford to. Along with old favorites we tried new things like eating at the Brown Derby and even trying out the dream that is eating inside the castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
5. Dress the Part!
Ok so I know any person can just go in and buy the bride and groom ears at a store, but come on if there ever was a time to wear them, your honeymoon is definitely the time! We wore ours proudly everyday on the ship and at the world. We also bought matching cruise line t-shirts and sweatshirts that we still wear at the same time together (awwww!!!). AND DONT FORGET THE BUTTONS! Get a button that says you are on your honeymoon! It is so encouraging and fun to hear congrats all day throughout the parks! You can see our buttons on my camera bag in the pic below.
6. Don’t forget the camera!
Commemorate your trip with fun pics around the parks. I know, I know you are on vacation, who thinks about taking pictures? Well all I know is that our house is full of pics we took from our honeymoon. It really was the best! Here is my favorite pic from our trip. We took this picture with the seven dwarves at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
