Happy Valentine's Day, theme park fans!

Happy Valentine's Day, Theme Park Insider readers.Tweet
A few days ago, I asked on Twitter and Facebook for suggestions on a fun, romantic thing to do in the theme parks that didn't require using a time machine to go back three months and book and restaurant reservation. I thought the best response was from Brian, who suggested to go get an order of "Quick-serve S'ghetti & Meatballs, reenact scene from Lady & the Tramp."
Disney never misses a marketing opportunity, and just released a remastered Lady and the Tramp on Blu-Ray.
Or try this other suggestion, if you're in Orlando today: "Drinks and appetizers at the California Grille [at Disney's Contemporary Hotel] around the time of the fireworks [8 pm tonight at the Magic Kingdom]. If you visit the concierge on the second level, you can usually schmooze your way up to the bar. Acquire your favorite beverage, wander to the exterior observation deck and enjoy the spectacular views of the seven Seas Lagoon and the fireworks exploding above Cinderella's Castle."
If you do have access to that time machine, though, take a look back at Mark Hollamon's post about arranging a special anniversary dinner at Mythos for some inspiration on what kind of romantic event you can put together at a theme park with some advance planning.
Are you doing anything special in a theme park today to celebrate? I'd love to hear about your plans (or a favorite theme park Valentine's Day from years past), in the comments.
