    Planning a WDW honeymoon

    What are anyone's suggestions on where to stay to make it feel like a honeymoon. II have been there before and I am a Disney veteran but not when it comes to planning a WDW honeymoon. Thank you.

    We had our honeymoon at WDW in 2006. We stayed at the Polynesian. We loved it! It was like being in Hawaii. We went to the luau. Lots of fun. We ate at a different world in world showcase every night. We did dolphin quest at Epcot and swam with dolphins. It was amazing. We went clubbing at downtown Disney at night. Great honeymoon!!

    I've never been to the yaht club, but I have been to Coronado and that was a great resort. It has a great atmosphere for a honeymoon

    Re: Planning a WDW honeymoon

    I honeymooned there a couple years ago. Here's my Mission: Disney report on it.

    The Yacht Club would be my choice of resort. It had a refined yet relaxed elegance about it that I love.

    It's perfect for access to Epcot and DHS and has an amazing pool.

    Great to pop to the Boardwalk or to explore the neighbouring Beach Club or Swan (great bar!) and Dolphin.

    You also have the Crews Cup Lounge and the Yachtsman Steakhouse right there. Perfect!
    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
    Just a dream away!

    What room did you stay in? I am looking at the deluxe club level.

    Sorry - should have made it clear. We've never actually stayed there (sadly!) but have visited frequently.

    For a 17 night stay (our usual) it's just too expensive to justify the extra $s. For a shorter stay or with plenty if cash, I'd deffo stay there!

    I stayed at the Yacht club twice, once on my honeymoon and also the year before. I agree with everything Winkster said about it.
    My (now ex) husband and I loved it. The lobby is very elegant with lots of beautiful wood accents and an a gorgeous huge nautical looking globe. The yachting theme is carried throughout the resort with nautical accents everywhere. The Yacht and Beach club are brother/sister resorts so they share an amazing 3 acre pool complex with many different sections and lots of cool features. There is also a quiet pool as well.
    The Yachtsman Steakhouse is one of the best restaurants on the Disney property and definitely worth checking out.
    There is a dock with a lighthouse at the end of it where you can catch a boat to either Hollywood Studios or EPCOT or you can walk to either. (We always walked to Epcot.) You are right across the lake from the Boardwalk resort which has some restaurants and some nightlife. It's beautiful to look at all lit up at night and take a stroll over and check out the ESPN club or Jellyrolls (a dueling piano bar). There used to be a dance hall over there but we never went, I think it's still there, but not sure. It is also located right next to the Swan and Dolphin hotels which are Disney hotels, but are run by Westin. There are a couple of nice restaurants and shops over there. I haven't gone over, but my parents have and they said it was nice.
    There is a marina to rent small watercraft to take out on the waterways around there if you like.
    One year (not our honeymoon year), we were upgraded upon checking in to the concierge floor. We were delighted! You could only access the floor with your room key. There was a lounge that had complimentary food and drinks all day and there was a concierge stationed at a desk in the hallway all the time to assist you with reservations or questions or what're you needed. While these were nice perks and we enjoyed them, we didn't feel the need to pay for that level the following year on our honeymoon. (Although we were secretly hoping they'd bump us up again!)
    I would definitely recommend the yacht club for your honeymoon if you like the whole nautical theme.

    This is the nighttime view of the Boardwalk from the Yacht and Beach Club side of the lake. You can see the Swan and Dolphin behind it.

    What rooms did you stay in? Is there anything I can do to make it more honeymoonish? As far I can see there's only on honeymoon suite at the resorts and I can't really find any pics that make me think honeymoon.

    Did you check out this site?

    Honeymoon Ideas | Disney Honeymoons

    There are some neat ideas in the descriptions...like a couples massage.

    Also, be sure to pick up bride and groom ears and your pins that indicate you are newlyweds.

    My parents did Disney for their honeymoon and loved it...
