The Waldorf Astoria Bonnet Creek near Walt Disney World has launched a new menu of spa services with a key ingredient: honey. For thousands of years, raw honey has been used for its powerful antioxidants and antibacterial properties. The Waldorf has infused local honey into its skin treatments, products and personalized therapies to promote anti-aging and healthy complexions. Couples can indulge with a side-by-side honey butter massage featuring Worker B, a customized product with almond oil, olive oil, vitamin E and beeswax that they can take home with them after the treatment. Couples can also get his-and-her pedicures—the Queen Bee features Tupelo honey and the Gentleman’s Refinery Pedicure includes a good scrub. Before your treatment, enjoy his-and-hers steam rooms and Jacuzzi. Turn your day trip into a date night with drinks at the Peacock Lounge, designed after New York's landmark hotel, and head next door to Bull & Bear for a special dinner with Epcot fireworks views.
