Steve and Sara wanted to begin their honeymoon where Steve had proposed, at Disney World in Florida. They then wanted to fly to an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean for some relaxation and fun. They wanted the majority of their expenses paid for before they left, so I recommended purchasing their theme park tickets and Disney Dining Plan, which provides meals at Disney’s resorts and theme parks. The all-inclusive resort I suggested was Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It’s on a beautiful stretch of sand about one hour from the airport.
We had a wonderful honeymoon. Disney was great. We were on the go a lot so we were really exhausted from that leg of the trip but it was so much fun. We were able to get to all the parks and do all the activities we wanted to do in that period of time. We also did the extra Halloween party at Magic Kingdom and that was a lot of fun. We were extremely happy with the dining plan. I don’t think we would go back to Disney without it. It was nice that we didn’t have to worry about the additional costs of the meals while we were on the trip. We ate at Cinderella’s Castle one of the nights which was really neat.
We like Dreams a lot. It rained for the first day we were there so that was kind of a bummer. It was actually kind of a blessing in disguise because we were able to take some naps and catch up on some rest without feeling like we were missing beach time. We really like the resort and the restaurants were great. It was very relaxing and the beach was so nice. We upgraded to the preferred rooms and we were really glad we did. With that, we got a private pool, extra restaurant choice for breakfast/lunch, private beach area, and free internet access. One thing that we forgot was to bring our marriage license to get the honeymoon package so we weren’t able to do that but it ended up not being a big deal. Sara got a massage one afternoon which she liked and we also went parasailing which was a lot of fun.
Overall we had a great time. Thank you for all of your help getting everything set up. It was a wonderful honeymoon.
