    We are going to Disneyworld for our honeymoon as well! We have a 3 1/2 year old son and he will be around 5 when we go so we didn’t want to just go off on a honeymoon by ourselves because we are getting married as a family ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh on another note: My friend got married 5 years ago and was 28 and they went to Disneyworld and they dont have kids. She really loves it and I think whatever makes you happy is what you need to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    We did our real honeymoon in Belize, and then two weeks after we got back it was my 30th, so we went to Disney for a fake second honeymoon/birthday trip. I say fake second honeymoon because we were trying to milk freebies out of the system, lol! FYI, birthdays get you further than honeymoons in Disney, but neither gets you much! In any case, I would have been totally happy with a Honeymoon in Disney, I love it there. We had a great few days, really enjoyed ourselves, and since it was October we got to go to the Not So Scary Halloween Party which was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can hardly wait to do it again!!!! If you’re into Disney and know what to expect in terms of line ups, kids, etc, you’ll be fine and have a great time ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS – I totally got the bride ears, but I couldn’t get DH to do the top hat ๐Ÿ™

    If you already love Disney and are a fun-loving couple, go for it!! I would love to take the BF to Disney World one day (I’m actually hoping for my 22nd birthday since it falls on a long-weekend).

    There is so much to do, both with and without kids around, so it can be romantic when you want to and carefree when you like.

    It’s your honeymoon, enjoy it and go wherever you want! We’re planning a Caribbean cruise and when I realized today we’d be in Florida a day before the cruise departs I mentioned making a pit stop at Disney to my FH and we were like two kids…totally go for it, ears and all!!

    @harleyquinn29: definitely a valid train of thought!

    I wish there were more than just the 2 parks in California; I was routinely jealous of Florida for having so many parks, when we’ve only got 2 (and DCA is kind of lame).

    We are having our wedding and honeymoon in disney world. 

    I don’t know much about Disneyland, but there are plenty of adult things to do and plenty of opportunities for romance in Disney World… 

    In My Humble Opinion, if you are planning on five day parkhoppers anyway… why not change it over to Disney World? There’s alot more to do and during May you have the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot… and I believe (not sure… might not be until June) Star Wars weekends over at Disney Studios.

    We just got back fom Disney World and for 2 adult and 2 kids with meal plan and resort it was about $2,700. It was a lot of fun and there were times when I wished we had a babysitter so DH and I could do stuff together. I think it would really be a lot of fun!

    I usually avoid posting on questions where I think I will give an answer that the OP doesn’t want to hear (just because I hate to hurt anyone’s feelings). But, to be honest, the whole Disneyland thing is something that has mystified me, so I am going to post my opinion (since you asked). I would never ever go on a Disneyland honeymoon and do think it is a bit “weird” (not the word I would usually use, but just using it because it is the word you used in your original post). To me, a honeymoon should be romantic and unique, something that you and your new husband can enjoy together that you wouldn’t be able to enjoy in the same way in a few years when you have kids. I think there is tons of time to go to Disneyland once you have children. I am aware that Disneyland is expensive, so I wouldn’t call it “cheap,” but I do think it is … uninspired (searching for a non-offensive word here)? I really hope you will consider somewhere else that could offer you so much more than Disneyland, which you can visit once you have children.

    @Calla85:  Disney (either world or land) is magical in its own way.  You dont have to have a beach or Paris (etc) to have romance.  D & I have a date night at least once each trip we head to Disney (World).  We like to ride rides together (which after kids you cant do…trust me we have 2), hold hands walking down Mainstreet at night toward the castle, kiss during the fireworks, even just enjoying the surroundings.  Disney has a way of making things extra special for those who are honeymooning or are getting married there.  It is diff when its just adults vs adults w/ kids.  This trip for them will be stress free not having to worry about who will watch the kids first so the other can go on Matterhorn or Big Thunder Mountain.  They can just enjoy the magic that Walt and his crew created together w/o worry.  For us we find the beach and that stuff overrated.  We deff enjoy being able to enjoy life and not be serious all the time. We have enough seriousness in our lives (D deploys every other year for a year) that once in a whole we like to just relax and let loose.  And isnt your honeymoon about enjoying something that you 2 enjoy TOGETHER. 

    OP…ENJOY IT we never had a true honeymoon so our Disney Vow Renewal and night after (cause Mother-In-Law is taking kids) is our DisneyMoon!!!!

    I have friends that went on a Disneymoon 20 years ago.  They STILL rave about the great time they had.  Your honeymoon should be something the two of you want and enjoy.  Who cares that others wouldn’t like it.  You and your husband will be there enjoying it, not them!  Go for it!
