Prepare to Be Awestruck by These Over-the-Top Disney Honeymoon Suites

  • Prepare to Be Awestruck by These Over-the-Top Disney Honeymoon Suites

    These suites are the most magical, most romantic, and definitely the most expensive.

    Short of marrying into an actual royal family or owning your own castle, there’s nothing more magical than a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding. And Disney honeymoons can be just as dreamy, from fine dining and exclusive cocktail lounges to jaw-droppingly gorgeous hotel suites straight out of a storybook. Unlike other hospitality brands, Disney hotels are designed by the same creative team and “Imagineers” responsible for immersive theme parks and cruise ships around the world. There’s magic at every level, from value resorts to deluxe villas, but if you can splurge, there are some seriously enchanting spaces with unique features that will make a celebration such as a honeymoon or an anniversary feel extra special. Here are the most romantic, once-in-a-lifetime Disney digs to book, from over-the-water bungalows to giant soaker tubs with theme park views to a royal suite hidden inside a cruise ship funnel.

  • Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

    WHERE: Walt Disney World Resort

    In addition to hotel rooms, you can also rent villas with a kitchen and washer/dryer at Disney Vacation Club resort hotels. And you don’t have to be a Disney Vacation Club member to book. Some of the most magical villas at any Disney property around the world are the Bora Bora Bungalows at the Polynesian. These over-water accommodations look just like bungalows off the coast of a Pacific island, no passport or 14-hour flight required. This tropical lodging is packed with luxe amenities that you’d find in an actual fancy bungalow, from a beautiful tile soaker tub to a wrap-around porch with hanging chairs, to your own plunge pool with a view of Cinderella Castle. It doesn’t get any more exclusive than watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks with a Dole Whip in hand (that you can get at the Poly without going into the park!) from your private over-the-water pool.

  • Copper Creek Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

    WHERE: Walt Disney World Resort

    A Bora Bora Bungalow is the place to honeymoon at Disney in the summer, but for fall and winter, it’s a Copper Creek Cabin at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Yes, it does get cold in Central Florida! And what better way to relax after a day in the parks than in your own private, waterfront hot tub? Whereas the bungalows have a porch, these luxury two-bedroom cabins have a screened-in patio and each pad gets a front-row seat to Disney’s nighttime Electrical Water Pageant on Bay Lake. The aesthetic here is Pacific Northwest glam with live edge wood tables, stone statement walls, and a large double-sided fireplace that can be enjoyed from both the living room inside or the wrap-around patio just off the main bedroom.

  • Fairy Tale Suite at Disneyland Hotel

    WHERE: Disneyland Resort

    Of all the themed hotel rooms across the global Disney portfolio, none are as thorough and immersive as the suites at the original Disneyland Hotel. Perched at the top of the resort’s Adventureland Tower, each unique suite is inspired by a land or an attraction at Disneyland Park. And the Fairy Tale Suite is absolute honeymoon goals. This space truly feels like royal chambers, from the gold canopy bed to the gothic-style etched glass shower walls to tufted pillows complete with crystal buttons. The massive jetted tub features Roman columns and a gorgeous mosaic of Sleeping Beauty Castle. No spoilers, but there’s even a magical greeting from a Disney character when you enter the ornate foyer.

  • Adventureland Suite at Disneyland Hotel

    WHERE: Disneyland Resort

    Inspired by Adventureland, the namesake suite is a full-on 1930s glamping safari vibe with steamer trunks, dark leather, and a guest bedroom that looks like it’s inside a giant canvas tent. The main bedroom, however, is incredibly romantic with a dramatic canopy bed and a gold clawfoot tub right beside it. The main bathroom even features a stone grotto with a foot spa and steam shower for ultimate relaxation.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean Suite at Disneyland Hotel

    WHERE: Disneyland Resort

    For each of these themed suites, the story starts before you even enter, as the rooms feature a unique sign and door. And you’ll know exactly what story you’re stepping into when you see the weathered wooden double doors for the Pirates of the Caribbean Suite. This space is an absolute must for fans of the ride and the film series. There are nods to the franchise everywhere, from rum barrel planters to a literal black pearl sitting inside a giant shell on the dining room table.

  • Signature Suites at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

    WHERE: Disneyland Resort

    Disney’s Grand Californian celebrates the best of the West and California’s National Parks with a brand new Tenaya Stone Spa and four signature suites inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. Forget Disney fans. Architecture buffs should honeymoon here, too. These rooms really feel as though you’ve been dropped into a Frank Lloyd Wright commissioned home with Craftsman-style stained glass windows throughout. Each one is unique and riffs off of a specific point in the art period. The Arcadia Suite is a stunning example of Wright’s later work, whereas the Mt. Whitney Suite references the beginning of the era with nods to the Beaux-Arts movement. These museum-like reproductions aren’t what you’d expect for a theme park hotel room. It’s a sophisticated kind of magic.

  • Royal and Funnel Suites

    WHERE: Disney Cruiseline

    In addition to standard staterooms, each Disney Cruise Line ship has a handful of concierge and suite-style rooms for the ultra-elite cruisers. The Walter E. Disney Suite and the Roy O. Disney Suite on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy are beautiful homages to the golden age of ocean liners. But for the brand new Disney Wish, the high-end accomodations aren’t nautical at all. It’s a castle at sea. For the Wish, there are four Royal Suites in the works all with unique Sleeping Beauty-inspired decor (two are Briar Rose themed, two are Aurora themed), a private verandah with a private hot tub, and a gilded bathroom that is the stuff of design dreams with a glass shower and free-standing tub overlooking the ocean. But the real wow-worthy magic is that two of these suites are two-story and have a spiral staircase.

    As if a spiral staircase in a cruise ship stateroom isn’t over-the-top enough, there’s more. In addition to the four Royal Suites, the Disney Wish will debut a Disney and industry first: a suite inside the ship’s funnel. Yes, the funnel! (Don’t worry it’s not the functioning one. DCL ships have two funnels for aesthetic.) This isn’t just a concierge stateroom. It’s a private tower. The Moana-themed 1,966-square foot penthouse has two-story floor-to-ceiling glass windows with ocean views, a library, and its own private elevator.
