When people think of romance at Walt Disney World, Epcot is not generally the first park ont their minds. Who doesn’t dream of getting engaged in front of Cindy’s Castle, or taking a romantic stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. with the Dapper Dans singing in the background? A fairytale is everyone’s dream , and the Magic Kingdom is the perfect place to have a dream come true.
But when I think about romance, my first thought is almost always Epcot. I’m crazy, I know butI also write for an Epcot blog and am serious about this. Mark outlined some romantic spots in his last post, and I started thinking about what made Epcot romantic for me. Here are my thoughts.
Just think about how romantic it can actually be! Let’s start with the world’s most romantic city, Paris, France. Epcot offers the romance of France without the lengthy travel plans of the cost.
Ever seen those tv shows where the guys always take their date to a scary movie so that they can hold them close and make them feel safe? Captain E.O., Test Track, the movie in Canada (Let’s be honest. We are all a little scared of Martin Short.)
How about the light reflecting off the World Showcase Lagoon as you stroll in the light from the globe during Illuminations? Illuminations is always romantic, embracing the world and showing how we are all connected.
Besides all this, Epcot was the vision Walt had to start the Florida Project, and seeing any dream become a reality and actually getting to live it make the whole park a romantic’s dream come true.
