With the mild Anaheim weather, the entire park blossoming into sweet pastels, and a heady atmosphere of romance, its no wonder twitterpated couples take to Disneyland for their Valentine's Day outing.
The park serves as a stunning backdrop for an unforgettable celebration of love. There are dining options, dark rides, picture opportunities and plenty of shopping outlets to spoil your sweetheart a bit. And scattered throughout all the bigger attractions Disneyland offers an array of small details that capture the imagination and put you in the mood for love:
A nighttime water show just outside Pixie Hollow.
The view along the Rivers of America.
The Dapper Dans, ready to serenade Valentines
strolling down Main Street.
The beautifully Valentine-themed windows at the
Gibson Girl IceCream Parlor on Main Street.
And of course, more Main Street Windows.

Valentine's Day is truly all in the details: the subtle decorations, the "Up" theme floating on the breeze, the sun setting behind Sleeping Beauty's Castle...
But the details that you'll truly cherish are those that involve the people you love - your Valentines. Whether you're spending the day with a parent, friend, sweetheart or sibling, that gentle hug, that lingering kiss, the way they smile at your joke -- that's what matters.
Happy Valentine's Day from Mouse Kisses!
