Disney’s Platinum Package- A Bucket List Trip

I was asked to write this post on behalf of my fellow Disney loving blogger & friend, Amy at Mom’s Magical Miles. Check out her roundup for other bucket list stories from other bloggers!

We’ve been always been a Disney family and visit Walt Disney World multiple times a year, but some trips stand out as extraordinary ones. We’ve been fortunate to try several “bucket list” experiences on our Disney vacations, but the one that I’ll always remember is our 2007 trip.

Our 2007 trip- such young love birds!

My Husband and I were still in the honeymoon phase and booked the platinum package Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian. If you’ve never taken a Disney trip as a couple, without the kids, it’s something you must experience at least once.

The Platinum Package gives you access to almost everything! Recreational activities, tours, signature dining, spa treatments and entertainment options are all included. Our stay was 7 days and we didn’t have time to use all of the  awesome features that are included in the package.

It was so much fun to experience Disney’s luxury side. My favorite part of the package is the private fireworks cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon. With drinks and snacks, you watch “Wishes” on a boat. It was definitely a magical bucket list experience. It the only time I’ve enjoyed Disney fireworks without being shoulder to shoulder with strangers.

The Platinum Package allowed us to experience the adult side of Disney. It included tickets to Cirque’s La Nouba at Disney Springs, which is something that we could never do with our toddler today. The spa treatments are an awesome way to recover from the parks and the special access tours give you a behind-the-scenes look. All are things that kids don’t appreciate as much at WDW.

If want to try Disney’s finest dining choices, then the Platinum Package gives you the freedom to do it nightly! We wined and dined at every meal. You have enough points, on the plan, for daily Signature Dining options.



The 2016 Platinum Package is bundled with your hotel and park tickets. It requires a minimum 3 night stay in a Deluxe resort or Deluxe Villa resort. Some things have changed, in the plan, since 2007. Instead of unlimited recreational activities, you can pick them based upon the length of your stay. You can also add a “no expiration” option, just in case you don’t have enough time for all that magic (uh- we didn’t).

I would recommend this plan if you want something beyond the parks. If you’re looking for that concierge “extra treatment”, this is the plan for you. To experience the tours, shows and spas is something that you can’t do every trip. But it makes you realize that Walt Disney World is so much more than 4 parks.

It was our once-in-a-lifetime Disney vacation and my favorite “bucket list” trip yet.

This definitely looks like an amazing way to enjoy a Disney trip. I hope that we get to go back soon.

My husband has never been to Disney before and we are taking our two children next year for the first time. I wish we could do an adult's only getaway but we're going to save that for some time in the future. When we do go to Disney, just the two of us, it sounds like I need to take advantage of all the amazing benefits of the Platinum package. Watching fireworks from a boat - yes please!

It's so lovely to be able to experience this with your significant other. I like that there are plenty of things to do and it would be awesome to do this without the kids, it's a good break and time alone with your husband or wife.
