The Ultimate Valentine's Day Guide

1. Celebrate Your Love in Celebration, Florida

Celebration, Florida, is the perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day. The community has a unique nostalgia and idyllic atmosphere that lends itself well to a leisurely day of romance.

Begin your day at Le Macaron, where you and your chérie d'amour can enjoy French pastries and coffee for breakfast. A fresh croissant or pain au chocolat is just what you need to inject a little ooh la la into your Valentine’s Day.

Next, rent a couple bicycles from Celebration Bike Rental and explore the town together. Celebration’s quiet streets and lengthy trails are perfect for two-wheeled travel. You might even spot some wildlife, like birds, turtles, or deer, along the way.

Does your sweetheart have a sweet tooth? Make a stop at at Kilwin’s Chocolates and Ice Cream for a refreshing ice cream or sugary caramel apple. A heart-shaped box of chocolates is a classic gift.

End your Valentine’s Day feeling starry-eyed under Celebration’s starry skies. The Bohemian Hotel’s Lakeside Bar + Grill is offering a special Valentine’s Day dinner menu. (We recommend calling ahead to make a reservation.) Live music, outdoor seating, and incredible views will set the tone for a romantic night.

2. Let Your Love Soar

What’s the point of Valentine’s Day, if not to be a little cheesy? Take your relationship to new heights and float over Kissimmee on a hot air balloon ride. There are several hot air balloon tour operators here in Kissimmee. Couples-only flights are often available, and many tour operators offer a champagne brunch during or after the excursion.  

A sunrise hot air balloon ride is hard to top. After such an exhilarating morning, you might want to unwind. Pamper yourselves with a couples massage at one of Kissimmee’s fantastic spas.

Once you’re feeling relaxed and refreshed, pay a visit to Kissimmee’s Old Town entertainment district for the night. This quaint neighborhood is a throwback to classic Florida towns, and it will give you plenty of restaurants to choose from for dinner.

End your Valentine’s Day the same way it began—up in the air. Old Town Kissimmee’s most famous and popular attraction is an 85-foot tall Ferris Wheel featuring over 6,000 colorful lights that twinkle in the night sky. A Valentine’s Day kiss atop a retro Ferris Wheel is about as Instagram-worthy as it gets.

3. Cast a Magic Spell

There’s no need to order a love potion from Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes this Valentine’s Day. A trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is enough to cause your date to fall in love with you.

Kick off your date at Diagon Alley, the same place Harry himself began his wizarding journey. Pay a visit to Ollivander’s and find your magic wands—or, as any true Potter fan knows, let your magic wands find you. If you want to know what the future holds for your romance you can purchase a crystal ball from Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment. We’re sure Professor Trelawney will help you interpret the results.

Hop on the Hogwarts Express and head on over to Hogsmeade. (You’ll need a park-to-park admission ticket.) Sip butterbeer together at the Three Broomsticks and enjoy a meal of traditional British fare. Dare to be a little sappy (it is Valentine’s Day after all) and send each other love letters at the Owl Post.

Nothing brings a couple closer together than adventure. After all, isn’t that how Ron and Hermione ended up together? Experience the hallowed halls of Hogwarts with Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ and come face-to-face with magical creatures during a thrilling, one-of-a-kind ride.
