We delight in the landscaping of the Canada Pavilion, be it the manicured lawns and bright flowers of the Victoria Gardens or the waterfall views from the courtyard terrace up behind the shops these romantic spots are a nice place to spend some time sitting on a bench to relax, just out of the fray of the crowds.

Another spot that we love for its off the beaten appeal is the United Kingdom. Grab a cider to go from the Rose & Crown Beer Cart, and then stroll through to the back of the pavilion where a small hedge-garden gazebo is home to the Band Quickstep and their authentic Scottish, English and Irish songs with fiddle, flute and fantastic Irish drum sound. Check the Entertainment Schedule for what time you can catch a concert!

I think the entire France Pavilion was designed for romance, after all, the City of Lights is made for love! Snuggle close while you watch the breathtaking tour of the countryside in Impressions de France, taste a variety of lush wines in Les Vins de France, and indulge in rich, sweet, seasonal favorites and house-made ice cream at L'Artisan des Glaces.

We love strolling through the streets of Morocco just soaking up the magnificent art, and design. The stained glass windows in the Gallery of Arts and History, the tile fountain in the Fez House courtyard, the brass bazar and Tangier Traders. Dinner at Restaurant Marrakesh, with it's dim lighting, live music, and belly dancers, is a fun spot to enjoy a date night in Disney.

Up above the central plaza and beating Tyko drums, guests who follow the water through the Japan Pavilion's traditional gardens will find the dining courtyard of the Katsura Grill. The outdoor patio is filled with umbrella tables and Japanese lanterns that hand from the lush greenery and above a beautiful waterfall. At night it's one of our favorite a quiet spots to share some sushi and udon.

Inside The American Adventure is one of the treasures of World Showcase, the pre-show concert of Voices of Liberty. This brilliant a capella group sings songs of romance and the love for the nation. While it's not a traditional dreamy moment, as veterans, my husband and I tend to get some serious warm fuzzies while listening. Inside the theater we enjoy holding hands while we watch the patriotic show.

Wine and small plates are in order for a respite of romance in the Italy Pavilion at Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar. Cuddle in close on a loveseat in the fireplace room, buy a bottle of luscious Italian wine from an ample list, and order up a selection of cured meats, cheeses, tasty pastas, and sinful desserts. Just be sure to let Disney Transportation do the driving.

Romance in Germany is another that's a bit non-traditional for us, but the Karamell-Kuche is the perfect place to chose some unforgettable sweets for your sweetie. Soft buttery caramel by the fine folks from Werther's Original is what it is all about, and we love to pick, and share some sinfully delicious desserts while sitting on a bench on the promenade.

The water gardens in China make for a peaceful retreat for relaxation and contemplation of how much fun you two are having together at Epcot! Traditional music plays throughout the pavilion and in the evening the reflection Temple lights dance off the water creating an enchanting atmosphere.

After dark, the charming covered seating area of Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion is a nice place to sit and enjoy a Viking Coffee and some School Bread. While construction walls currently make the view here less than ideal, the whole idea is to focus of the one you love.

You'll find stunning views of IllumiNations waterside in the Mexico Pavilion, at both La Hacienda San Angel and at La Cantina San Angel.
