- Wedding: December 2017
My faincé and I recently decided on an Orlando honeymoon!! I am so excited, I may die a little bit.
I had a few questions and ideas, and wanted to get input from regular visitors, or fellow Disney honeymooners, or brides…
1. Staying on/off property. We are very interested in staying at the Four Seasons. We like the idea of a less kid-oriented resort, a hotel with a spa, spacious rooms, and paying more for the luxury details, not just the convenince of being in a disney hotel. Nothing against Disney properties! I think they are magnificent!! But I also feel that a huge part of what you pay for are details that don’t matter to us very much (theming, disney transportation acess, etc).
The one thing I do care about, however, would be the extra magic hours – in particular, I love the Magic Kingdom at night. Once many sleepy kiddies have gone to bed, when the glowing balloons come out, and the rides have a totally different feel. I wanted to hear people’s thoughts.. is this alone worth staying on property? Has anyone ever stayed off property, but conjunctively booked one night at a disney bargain/value hotel, in order to access extra magic hours for a day? Is this even possible?
2. My next question is, if we WERE to stay on property, where would you recommend? I have always wanted to stay at the Polynesian or Animal Kingdom. Are these good choices for a honeymoon? (our personal priorities: relaxing, being close to parks, a nice pool area, good food)
3. Random, I know, but where would you say is the best breakfast in Disney (park or hotel)? I would love somewhere with Mickey waffles and an omlette station.
4. Any wisdom or advice OR PICTURES you have to share??? We will be going in early December, just the two of us, staying for 7 to 10 days 🙂
Thanks so much!!!
