my Fiance and i want to go to Disneyland for our honeymoon. we’re thinking 5 days 6 nights.
we would get 5 day park hoppers
and of course have to wear the ears 🙂
i found a nice suite (not a honeymoon suite) but it has a Jacuzzi in the room (not a Jacuzzi bathtub, an actual Jacuzzi) and from what I’ve read the hotel is nice
Fiance and I decided on this because after all the stress of wedding planning, we wanted something “fun” and light (if that makes sense lol)
we can always take another trip… that is why were aren’t too concerned about it
but his family seems to think its weird 🙁
they asked if it was because of finances **rolls eyes**
we are spending just as much if not more on this trip than we would have at an all inclusive resort trip or something
so tell me, is it weird??? lol

We’re honeymooning at Disney and I’m so excited about it! Look into getting the deluxe dining plan so you can eat at California Grill and Narcoossee’s and allt he other awesome restaurants. Some people just don’t get it, they think Disney is a little kids’ place. But where else can you get roller coasters, awesome pools, fireworks shows that may or may not actually bring tears to me eyes, shows – some Disney and some like Cirque du Soelil, great restaurants, surfing lessons, safari rides, and more?! I love it, it’s my family’s favorite place ever. And the cast members treat honeymooners so special!

We honeymooned at Disney and we loved it!!! I didn’t go on my honeymoon with the intent of making my family happy so I wouldn’t worry about what others think.
Also I would say 80% of the things we did at Disney we would not have been able to do with children.

I wouldn’t want to honeymoon there, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t. I would want to relax on beach and not be around a ton of screaming kiddos, but that type of honeymoon isn’t for everyone either. Disney is expensive so the finance thing is silly. We’re going in October and for the 3 of us it’s like $5k!

I don’t think a Disney honeymoon is for everyone but neither is going on safari or as mwitter80 said relaxing on a beach. I grew up on the beach so the idea of taking a trip to a different one sounds boooooring. LOL.
Like june42011id, you’re going on your honeymoon for yourself not other people. If you want to do disney then go for it.

exactly, i know it’s been awhile since his family as been to disneyland but it’s never been cheap so the money comment is so ridiculous. we are easily spending $3k-$4k on this trip and i’ve heard of deals where you can get a whole week at an all inclusive resort including airfare for like $2500 total.
don’t get me wrong, we love beaches and we love to travel together and do it often, and plan to continue. but i think for that week i want disney magic 🙂
thanks ladies! glad to see i’m not the only one having a disneymoon!

depending on the season, DL can be super stressful, what with the strollers and screaming kids and sticky food spilled everywhere… if you are going right after your wedding though, it’ll be before elementary schools let out for the summer, so you should miss at least some of the chaos, which will make it a lot more fun!
Have you been before? Having lived in Southern California for several years, my perspective may be a little jaded, but I’m not sure I’d want to spend 5 days in the parks – maybe a 2 or 3 day park hopper and then drive to San Diego and do the wild animal park and zoo for 2 days! There are some tourist packages you can buy that include various parks around the (southern part of the) state.
If you guys love the Mouse though, go for it! It’s YOUR honeymoon, afterall, not that of any naysaying family members 🙂

We are looking into Disneyworld! They have nice resorts, nice restaurants, and a lot to do. I completely agree – it would be nice to do something fun and easygoing after the wedding!

NOT weird at all!! I wish we could go to disney on the cruise b/c my parents are a part of the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) and we could have gone for FREE…but not Mr. anti-Disney. UGH!!! Have fun! I have the ears I’ll be wearing them for my Bachelorette, Bridal shower and Rehershal! I can’t wait!! 🙂 Nothing wrong at all for going there…it’s your honeymoon, you do what YOU guys want to do!! Oh and lots of people go there…you get treated VERY WELL when you tell them your on your honeymoon. I had some friends go there a couple years ago and my parents went many years ago too.
Also, Park hopper is the way to go. Also, save money for food and get the Meal Plan…you save so much money that way.

@thetraceface: go on the dis boards and check out coronado springs. that is where we are staying. for the price, it seems like such an amazing trip and resort!
and for the time, it may sound crazy but wait to go on the honeymoon at the right time if you can. we are getting married in june, but will go to disney world in september. because of the price, vacation time, crowds, ect.

Would I go? No. But my husband would’ve been thrilled. Actually our first and maybe biggest fight was about him getting mad because I said I wouldn’t want to go to disneyworld on vacation lol.
I just think there are disney people and then there are non-disney people. Us non-disney people just don’t get the appeal. But that doesn’t mean we’re right… it just means we have different preferences. If this is what you want to do, ignore his family and go for it! It certainly is not unheard of. I have 2 cousins that did disneyworld for their honeymoons and they both loved it.

Do it! I know a few people who have honeymooned at Disney and loved it. It’s your honeymoon and you only get one, so do what you want!

i grew up in the san fernando valley so i have been, but the last time was high school, 14 or 15 years ago. 🙂
i was thinking the 5 day park hopper so we could relax and maybe leave the park early a few nights to enjoy our private jacuzzi and some champagne 😉

Just wait and reread the OP…Disneyland or Disney World? I can’t imagine spending a full week at Disneyland, but ypi can easily do that at Disney World!
