Top Ten Romantic Things to do in Disney World
1.) Carriage Rides through Fort Wilderness or Port Orleans Riverside
Where: You can do these private carriage rides at both Fort Wilderness and Port Orleans. We did ours at Fort Wilderness and we loved it.
How: You can reserve a carriage ride by calling Disney's recreation line. It's basically the same as making an ADR. The going rate for a carriage ride is 45$ for 25mins.
Why: Imagine riding in a carriage on a dirt country road. Wildlife is all around you. You hear birds chirping and see bunnies hopping about. The woods are so lush and green, with Spanish moss hanging low off of the branches. You have a glass of wine in your hand, a cozy warm blanket over your lap, and you're all cuddled up with you honey. All the while the sun is setting and twilight is falling.
How romantic is THAT!?
I guess I'm partial to the carriage rides because Adam proposed to me on one at Fort Wilderness on our November 2008 trip. Honestly if we didn't get engaged it still would be on my list! It was one of the most romantic things I've ever done. We went to Fort Wilderness a bit early and grabbed two glasses of wine at the Meadow Snacks Bar window. If it's just the two of you get a nice glass of wine for the ride, if you're going to be with the kiddos maybe get a hot chocolate (if its cold) or some lemonades (if its hot).
I can't speak for the carriage ride through Port Orleans, but the one through Fort Wilderness was very private. You first go through the campgrounds and then on this trail through the woods. We saw a whole family of deer and a group of bunnies hopping around. Obviously the family of deer was an added bonus to our carriage ride and I can't guarantee that it'll happen for you. It was an awesome experience and extremely romantic.
