Disney Parks' Valentine's Day Desserts Are An Instagram Daydream
Love is sweet, and Valentine's Day provides the perfect opportunity to soak it all in. And what is a better place for basking in all that makes love sweet than Disney? The parks are known for their exceptional approach to dining, and dessert is where they shines. Always suckers for a theme, Disney has a lot in store for the most romantic day of the year. But really, you don't wanna miss the special Valentine's treats at Disney Parks.
Valentine's celebration options for you and your honey are endless, but the most classic has a lasting appeal. Set against a backdrop of the happiest place on earth, you and your love feast on incredible creations worthy of (Disney) royalty in any number of their exquisite restaurants. Face it: the real reason you, a grownup, love Disney so much is for its food. But, food on a holiday? Next level.
As Alex Dunlap, Disney's Food & Beverage Content Relations Coordinator described on the Disney Parks Blog, "Whether you’re celebrating with a loved one, family, or great friends, there are plenty of ways to celebrate with specialty Valentine’s Day offerings throughout the resort. Share a cupcake, chocolate-dipped strawberries, or even specialty pasta." But once you see these sweets, there's no way something savory would tickle your fancy."
