Welcome back to our list of ways to celebrate Galentine’s Day at Walt Disney World. If you missed Part 1, you can read that here. Hope you enjoyed part one of this series and are excited to come back for more! Just a reminder, this list can be used for any fun trips and not just Galentine’s Day. Many of these options will be great for adults-only trips, bachelor/bachelorette parties, or just a trip where you are celebrating something special with kids or without.

That last-minute, mask-wearing, solo trip turned out to be one of my best trips ever!
I guess I should backtrack just a bit. First, the Disney love runs DEEP in me. I was the 11-year-old crying on the back of the ferryboat after leaving Magic Kingdom on the last day of our first trip back in 1994 because I was so incredibly sad that I probably would never return again (it’s been 35 trips since then).
