10 Anniversary Ideas To Consider In Orlando

One of the challenges that comes with each anniversary is finding fun and unique ways to celebrate the occasion. Part of this process is finding a perfect destination, and Orlando, Florida is all that and more.

Views of Orlando can be found in a variety of fun ways, and couples who enjoy outdoor activities have several adventures to choose from. Theme parks can add excitement to your anniversary, and there is no shortage of restaurants for a romantic dinner.

Margaritaville Resort Orlando can help you make your dream romantic getaway a reality. Here are 10 anniversary ideas to consider in Orlando.

1. Aerophile – The World Leader in Balloon Flight

One way to share romantic moments during your anniversary is to take advantage of amazing views of the area. With Aerophile at Disney Springs, you can take a ride in a balloon to see Orlando from the sky.

This balloon reaches heights of up to 400 feet, offers views of up to 10 miles away, and is best saved for a sunny day. If you want to add romance to the ride, book a tour later in the day for a view of the sunset.

2. Swam Boat Ride At Lake Eola

Staying at Margaritaville Resort allows you to take a quick drive to Downtown Orlando for a day or night of city fun. Honor your anniversary with a swan boat ride at Lake Eola for a slow journey in a romantic environment.

The boats are designed after the swans who frequently inhabit the lake, and you can paddle together and enjoy views of the lake and downtown area. Restaurants nearby will make for reliable sources of romantic dinners.

3. Universal CityWalk

Is a day at Universal Resort Orlando reserved for your vacation so that you can experience a variety of thrills through rides? We recommend spending part of your visit at Universal CityWalk for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Couples who are sports fans can watch a game at NBC Sports Grill, shop for souvenirs at Universal Legacy Store, and take a boat ride along the canal way at the Universal Complex. Dine at Hard Rock Café before catching a movie at Universal Cinemark.

4. Swimming With Manatees At Crystal River

Couples with a preference of spending their getaways in the outdoors with the chance of interacting with wildlife should take a trip to Crystal River. This spot is popular for being the home of manatees, which you can see while kayaking or paddleboarding.

Tours are available so you both can learn more about the areas and other wildlife that inhabit Crystal River. After your tour, you can take a ride to Vintage on 5th for a gourmet lunch or dinner.

5. Riding The Wheel At ICON Park

Another way you can enjoy beautiful views during your vacation at Margaritaville Resort is with The Wheel at ICON Park. You can take a sky ride on the 400-feet tall wheel to check out all of Orlando, which is made better at sunset.

Save time during your visit to ICON Park for rides such as Orlando StarFlyer, which gives you another view with some thrills. You can choose between any of the park’s restaurants for a romantic meal.

6. Orlando Heli-Tours

Sharing moments with your partner is made easy when you have unique experiences such as a helicopter tour. Booking with Orlando Heli-Tours allows you to see the city and its attractions with a bird’s-eye view.

Whether you want to check out all of Disney’s theme parks from the sky or both Disney and SeaWorld in one trip, Heli-Tours has you covered. You can also take a tour that flies over the homes of some of the most famous residents of Florida.

7. Shopping At The Florida Mall

Do you want to spend an afternoon either buying something for your loved one as an anniversary gift or shopping with them? You can take a drive from Margaritaville Resort to the Florida Mall for a proper shopping experience.

You can find new clothes at Macy’s or Zara, or you can check out Mayors Jewelers or Sephora for gift ideas. When you are done with your shopping spree, stop by any of the mall’s multiple restaurants for lunch.

8. Hollywood Studios Fireworks

Disney’s Hollywood Studios offers a variety of rides for excitement and attractions based on popular films and characters. When it comes to celebrating your anniversary, we recommend this park for the fireworks show.

This display treats you with colorful fireworks exploding over the lake of the theme park for a memorable experience. You can enjoy the show from inside the restaurants or with outdoor seating.

9. Touring Restaurant Row

Going out as a couple for an anniversary lunch or dinner involves knowing which restaurants can offer a unique experience. That is why we recommend touring Restaurant Row to see your options.

You can try Japanese food at Kabooki Sushi and Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, or you can enjoy steak and burgers at China Steakhouse or Morton’s The Steakhouse. Save a table at Norman’s for fine dining fit for your anniversary.

10. Be Our Guest Dinner At Magic Kingdom

Disney magic can help you create a romantic environment, especially if you save a day for Disney’s Magic Kingdom. After seeking thrills with the theme park’s variety of rides, the best ending to the day is with a dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant.

You can treat yourselves with American, French, and casual dinners paired with specialty cocktails and wines in a Disney-themed setting based on the classic film Beauty and the Beast. End the meal with delicious desserts before catching Magic Kingdom’s fireworks display.

Decorated with a coffered, 20-foot ceiling with fluffy clouds and cherubs, the ballroom at Be Our Guest Restaurant features sparkling chandeliers designed to convey the elegance of the Beast’s Castle in “Beauty and the Beast.”
