When you think of romantic theme parks in the Orlando area, you likely think of Disney World. However, as you plan your exciting anniversary getaway, don’t forget about the special touches you can experience at Universal Orlando. The Orlando Informer Blog posted the top 5 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Universal, and we feel these are great options for an anniversary too.

1.         Take a walk to the water’s edge

Universal CityWalk is well known as a place with lots of restaurants and nightlife, but you can also grab your honey and sneak away to a less populated area that surrounds the lack. Start at Jimmy Buffett’s Lone Palm Airport bar for a drink and find the least populated benches nearby.

2.         The parks themselves are as romantic as you make them

Just being in Universal after sunset can be an incredibly romantic experience. Take your sweetie on a thrill ride like Camp Jurassic and hold them close as the ride twists and turns.

3.         Grab dinner and a movie

Right outside of the theme parks you’ll find a unique experience at Meal & Movie at the AMC Universal Cineplex 20. There you can take in a movie and eat a delicious meal together. This is actually a great bargain and is a good choice for the couple who wants to keep expenses down.

4.         Stay at a romantic resort or rent a vacation home

Of course part of your adventure is where you lay your heads at night. Consider the many beautiful resorts in the Orlando area, or rent an entire vacation home to yourselves. They can actually be very affordable and give you access to a private pool, Jacuzzi, and full kitchen.

5.         Pick up some romantic lingerie

Stop by the Betty Boop Store at Islands of Adventure and check out some unique, flirty lingerie. This is a great way to pick up a gift for your loved one that you won’t find anywhere else in the country.
