Disneyland Valentine’s Day Photo Spots

Valentine’s Day decor first arrived at Disneyland in 2019 and returned just a couple days before February 14th in 2020. 

Sleeping Beauty Castle a beautiful site all year, but especially during Valentine’s Month. You’ll want to get that coveted picture front of the castle. I also have plenty of other photos ideas for you, and some spots Disney created just for Valentine’s Month.

Minnie’s Valentine Scavenger Hunt

In 2019 we saw the first ever Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt. No word if we’ll see Minnie Mouse  set up a Valentine’s Day Surprise Scavenger Hunt for you and your family to enjoy in 2020.

Minnie Mouse has another surprise for you during Valentine’s Month at Disneyland. You can search for secret valentines Minnie has hidden for Mickey and their pals all around Disneyland Park. The game board and stickers set is about $7.00.

Use it to find the secret valentines and redeem your completed game board at Disney Showcase for a special surprise. This is great for kids, and you don’t have to complete the entire hunt to get your prize.

Disneyland Valentine’s Day Food

You can tell Disney land is serious about their Valentine’s Day experience because they even released full menus of new Valentine food! Now that’s what I’m talking about.

From cherry pink cotton candy to a Strawberry Cheesecake “Funnel of Love” and even Chocolate-covered Strawberry Beignets, you’re going to have a hard time choosing what to eat!

If you’re spending time at home this Valentine’s Day, be sure to bake some Disney Valentine’s Day sugar cookies with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and Valentine sprinkles.

Disneyland Valentine’s Date Ideas

Beyond being in the parks, we like to incorporate movies into our holiday traditions, and Valentine’s Day is no different. We’ve made it a tradition to watch Lady and the Tramp on Disney+ as a family on or near Valentine’s Day.

If you’re looking for a quick way to sweeten up your Valentine’s Day at home, snuggle up with some of my favorite Disney love stories like Lady and the Tramp , Beauty and the Beast or Enchanted .

    I am at Disneyland in LA right now and my girlfriend and I really wanted to take some pictures at the cool locations, however unless I have failed to look properly they are not up this year.

    • I’m disappointed they haven’t shown up yet. And with hosting two Sweethearts after dark nights you’d think this would be more of a priority. Disney hasn’t officially released any news for 2020 which is also noted in the article… I’m sorry it didn’t return in time for your visit. I hope you were able to get some of the other classic photo spots mentioned instead.

    How is Sleeping Beauty Castle undergoing refurbishment? That was done when I was there last May 2019 and it is not listed as a refurb on the website?
