orlandovacation_mystic-dunes-coupleIs there any better place in the world to celebrate your anniversary than Orlando? We don’t think so! No matter what kinds of exciting things you have planned, you’ll want to take the extra step to make it a little extra special. Here are three ways you can do just that.

1.         Upgrade your accommodations

If you’ve visited the Orlando area before and been the type of couple to focus on attractions rather than accommodations, your anniversary trip is the perfect opportunity to switch it up. Rent an incredible vacation home for much less than you might think, or try a resort that has tons of amenities and things to do. Sure, you’ll spend plenty of time out and about in the Orlando area, but why not take a night or two to relax at “home”, too?

When you rent a vacation home you can even prepare private, delicious meals. Each vacation home is equipped with a full kitchen plus the basics you’ll need for cooking. Whip up your beloved’s favorite meal, grab a couple of candles to make your dinner even more romantic, and then top it off with a dip in your private pool or a soak in your own Jacuzzi.

Many couples who come to Orlando to celebrate are those who’ve been here many times before. If you’re in that camp, consider trying to mix it up a bit. Sure, you have your favorites, but it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. If your touring plans are so specific that you visit the same attractions and shows at every park every time, consider giving an overlooked attraction another shot, or try something you’ve never tried before.

If you always focus on Disney World, why not spend a day at Universal? If you’ve visited both of them many times, why not head out to Gatorland or Wet ‘n’ Wild? There’s plenty of time for you to visit your favorite spots but it’s great to create some brand new memories while you’re on your anniversary trip.

3.         Plan a unique romantic experience

You likely know all about the romantic options within the theme parks themselves, but there are tons of options outside the parks, too. For example, did you know that you don’t have to travel any further than Downtown Disney to take off on a hot air balloon ride? It’s true! It is recommended that you book this reservation in advance, but once you’ve got it set up you’ll be able to view Orlando like you’ve never seen before! Just be sure to have a backup plan because these rides only go up if the weather is cooperating.
