Actually an Orlando vacation is where we began our honeymoon. Honeymoon in Orlando Orlando has some wonderful, romantic spots throughout the area. For people wanting just to walk quietly side by side, there are parks like Lake Eola and Kraft Azalea Gardens. Below you will find our report on all the romantic dining, activities and accommodations we indulged in the first week.
For convenience we stayed in a Kissimmee vacation rental as it was close to all the activities and offered us some seclusion and a private pool.
Having arrived from Europe we were a bit jet-lagged and not immediately ready for Walt Disney World, Sea World and other famous mega-theme parks like Universal Studios.
Luckily our family arranged for us to spend the first day of our romantic Orlando Vacations relaxing, lounging on long stretches of white sand beaches and swimming with dolphins, snorkeling through colorful reefs teeming with thousands of tropical fish, exploring underwater shipwrecks, and grottos at the Discovery Cove.
Discovery Cove is an all inclusive experience, once you are inside all food and drinks are included. Packages include unlimited access to Explorer’s Aviary, home to hundreds of species of exotic birds. The Tropical reef, where you can snorkel alongside hundreds of tropical fish and rays that practically swim up and demand to be petted.
The Discovery Cove package gave us unlimited admission to Sea World Orlando (you can choose Busch Gardens Tampa Bay instead) for up to 14 consecutive days.
We spend one day of our romantic Orlando vacations at the Typhoon Lagoon, where you can snorkel hand-in-hand above a pool of leopard and nurse sharks and rainbows of tropical fish.
For the rest of our stay we kept busy with Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World - my favorite part was a tunnel aquarium we walked in surrounded by sea creatures.

Towards the end we did an air-boat alligator tour and to do something different we visited the Kennedy Space Center. There we wondered about the potential of romantic space tourism.

I think it's romantic, especially sitting outside enjoying their delicious and different food, absolutely non-stuffy.
