Celebrate Valentine’s Day 2024 in the Disney Parks

A trip to Orlando’s Disney World is something to look forward to year-round, but if you’re lucky enough to be heading this way over Valentine’s Day, you’ll find the Disney Parks are even more packed with options for fun! Whether you’re a traveler who loves to explore custom merchandise, has a heart for shopping, or can’t wait to taste the very best of seasonal flavors available, the Disney Parks are places where you can easily tailor your Valentine’s Day experience to your personal style. The following are just a few of the many routes to relishing every moment spent at Disney over Valentine’s Day in 2024.

Find a Great Gift for the One You Love Most

Just because your plans include theme park fun when you spend Valentine’s Day 2024 at Disney World doesn’t mean you have to forgo those traditional holiday favorite gifts. Simply head over to Disney Floral & Gifts on February 14 and you’ll find an array of incredible options to choose from including flowers and chocolates to slippers, Champagne, and custom gift baskets too. It’s the perfect place to treat your loved one to their favorites or pick up a surprise for later to give them in the park!

Savor a New View on the Terrain

If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day activity that pairs amazing views with a bit of thrilling fun, there’s nothing quite like a balloon ride enjoyed at Disney Springs. Situated in the heart of the park’s fan-favorite shopping stop, this balloon ride is a romantic way to enjoy your surroundings and create unforgettable memories while you’re here. The balloon is located by the waterfront and goes by the name Characters in Flight. They operate flights daily which are about 10 minutes total and can be booked between 8:30 am and midnight. You’ll travel 400 feet up in the air to savor incredible sights before coming gently back down to earth. If you make your way in this direction during sunset, you’ll find the colorful sky only adds to the Valentine’s Day romance of the experience.

Treat Your Tastebuds to Sweet Moments

Anytime you head on a trip to Orlando’s Disney World, you can count on it being a savory experience at every turn. The parks are loved for their vast lineup of delicious dining options to enjoy and Valentine’s Day is no exception to that rule. This time of year, the parks tend to showcase a variety of fun, Valentine’s Day themed treats that you won’t want to miss out on. Keep your eyes open for the Mickey Mouse-shaped sugar cookies being sold across the parks as well as the red and pink Rice Krispies and decadent desserts and pastries at Amorette’s Patisserie. If you make your way to the Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom, you’ll find Valentine’s Day-themed candies just about everywhere you look! If it’s chocolate-covered strawberries you’re after, you’ll find them waiting for you at the Germany Pavilion at Epcot where Karamell-Kuche is known for serving up savory delights.

Make the Most of Annual Festivals

Valentine’s Day travelers who head to the Disney parks in 2024 will find they’re right on schedule to enjoy the highly anticipated Epcot International Festival of the Arts. The event is scheduled to be held from January 12 through February 19, 2024, meaning there’s plenty of time to maximize the fun on February 14. This is an annual event where guests can enjoy the best of culinary treats, visual displays, and fun performances too. There’s a Broadway Show series built into the event as well as opportunities to have conversations with artists and even contribute your own skills to community murals.

Add a Delicious Dinner to Your Lineup

A Valentine’s Day dinner is an important part of the holiday for many people and when you’re at the Disney Parks this time of year, you’ll find there’s no shortage of options for delicious experiences. In fact, many restaurants offer Valentine’s Day specials and themed plates that are sure to inspire. Victoria & Albert at the Grand Floridian is the perfect place to reserve a table for two if you’re looking to enjoy a sophisticated and elegant night out. Hollywood Brown Derby at Hollywood Studios and Be Our Guest at the Magic Kingdom are also great options for a Valentine’s Day dinner you won’t soon forget. Those who find themselves in the mood for French fare will love every second of dinner enjoyed at Monsieur Paul at Epcot.
