- A trip through Forever Florida Park: It’s hard to think of romantic settings in the heart of central Florida without reverting to nature. Beginning with a trip through a traditional Florida ranch, which features a living museum, and Florida’s unique Cracker Horses, your Forever Florida journey takes you through a Safari Adventure which covers a 4,700-acre Wildlife Conservation Area, preserved in its natural state. The open Safari coaches will give you a fantastic view of everything on the ground.
- A visit to EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow): This miniature Future World is now synonymous with both Orlando and Disney. With technological advancements well-showcased, –from energy up to space travels–EPCOT is a fusion of both entertainment and education, into a wonderful theme park. The presence of one of the world’s largest artificial Islands only serves to improve this already impressive park.
- A visit to the Orlando Eye: The Orlando Eye is a 400-ft tall giant Ferris wheel, which is about 90-ft taller than the Statue of Liberty. Passengers in its climate-controlled capsules could see all the way to Florida’s Atlantic coast. While each capsule holds up to 15 people – for a 30-minute circuit around the wheel, you can book a private capsule for a special evening. Romantic, eh?
- Reunion Wyndham Grand Golf & Spa Resort: Six miles away from Walt Disney World, and tucked away amid three golf courses designed by legends of the game, lies Reunion. An onsite water park, a multitude of dining options, a tennis camp, and several oasis-like pools for relaxation, are just some of its attractions.
- A visit to Gatorland: “Orlando’s best half-day attraction” – As implied by its name, Gatorland plays host to a park devoted to Florida’s most famous native inhabitants – Gators. Spend time soaring over live alligators and crocodiles, at a speed just under 30 m.p.h using the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line. Enjoy various into-the swamp outings for close-up alligator action, and enjoy a cold beverage by a pool of gators.
- Valentine’s Balloon Flight over Orlando: Orange Blossom Balloons offers an opportunity for a one hour flight, with champagne toast. Soaring in the sky with your love sounds very romantic.
- Central Florida Zoo FL Sex and the ZOO: This Valentine’s special on offer from Central Florida Zoo, includes two shows – a Dinner Show and Late Night Show – and is adult-oriented, with its mantra – Experience the wild side of Romance!
