More and more newlyweds are planning to visit Anaheim, California for their honeymoons as a way to celebrate their love. This often coincides with a trip to Disneyland, but there are many fun activities that you can do in the area with your new spouse.


The top destination in Anaheim is Disneyland, with fun rides and entertainment for all ages. You can actually use their website to register for a Disney honeymoon, which allows your wedding guests to contribute to your magical getaway. You can show off your newlywed status throughout your whole day at the park with a commemorative pin and a pair of Minnie Mouse ears with a bridal veil attached or Mickey Mouse ears with a top hat. Just across the parking lot, you can also visit California Adventure, which has a few more extreme rides.

Beach Getaway

If you are looking for a honeymoon in which you can relax and rejuvenate after a busy time of wedding planning, Anaheim is close to beautiful beaches and luxurious resorts. You can enjoy a day of sunning and resting on the beach, while thinking about your future with your new husband or wife. Orange County is home to more than 40 miles of coastline, where you can take strolls on the beach at sunset or enjoy a candlelit picnic for two. One of the top beaches in the area is Huntington, which is 22 miles from Anaheim.


Many couples enjoy shopping for souvenirs together to remember their special trip as new spouses. You can shop at many of the little stores along the beachfront areas or visit the top shopping malls nearby, such as Irvine Spectrum and Fashion Island. These malls boast shops featuring goods from top designers so you can get outfitted in the latest trends. If you are on a smaller budget, be sure to check out the surf shops where you can pick up t-shirts, mugs, magnets, and other cute items to commemorate your trip.

Luxury Hotels

No matter what your budget may be for the honeymoon, you can certainly find hotels in Anaheim that fit your needs. You can choose luxurious hotels that are close to the beach and have ocean views or stay inland and save a little money. There are also hotels available that are very close to Disneyland, which makes it easier to get to and from the park without worrying about transportation. Some hotels provide special details to honeymooning guests, such as complimentary drinks and snacks or even a honeymoon suite that may have a private hot tub or other unique features.


Depending on when you visit Anaheim, you may be able to catch a festival. During the autumn months, visit the Anaheim Fall Festival and Halloween Parade to get in the spirit of the holiday. You can also listen to unique music performances at the WorldStrides Heritage Performance.

Anaheim is well-known as a vacation spot for families, but it is also a fun place to travel to in your first few days as newlyweds.
