Call us romantics, but we think that Walt Disney World is a GREAT place for a date night!
But we like to take a very broad approach to date night here at Disney Food Blog. So we decided that it would be all kinds of funnnz to come up with some radical departures for how to spend your Day o’ Love. I mean sure, chocolate-dipped strawberries and Champagne are awesome, and a fancy meal is sure to impress. But more than anything, we just wanna have fun!
If you’re with us, check out our Top 3 Ideas for Your Unconventional Date Night, Disney World Style!
Swap a Fancy Meal for FastPasses
Fancy meal? Whatevs. Who wants to get dressed up and sit around for hours?? You’re at Disney — get out there and enjoy it!
Instead of dinner at a signature restaurant, skip straight to the fun, and schedule FastPasses for three of your favorite rides together (and make sure at least one of them is a dark ride. 😉 )
They’re definitely big enough to share!
Get the Kids Involved!
Spending more time together as a family always figures high on our list of priorities. And kiddos especially love some one on one time with Mom and Dad. So how about taking a different approach to your next evening out. Make a “date” with your littles!
One fun idea would be to split up for fun Mom/Son, Dad/Daughter “dates”. Go on separate dinner dates and let the kids choose the restaurants! ESPN Club at Disney’s BoardWalk is a great choice for your budding baseball or soccer star!
But save room, because you can all meet up for some ice cream later and compare notes! How about sharing a No Way Jose from Beaches and Cream four ways?? (Want more ice cream suggestions? Check our our Ice Cream Gallery!)
Top off the evening with an outdoor movie at your resort before tucking in for pleasant dreams.
Play with Your Food
Have you always wanted to
Create Your Own a Cupcake Crawl? Well, take it from us — these are best attempted with a team of at least two! Eating all of your favorite cupcakes is glorious, true. But that’s a LOT of frosting. Having help makes it that much more sweet. Besides, you can compare notes and decide which is your favorite! Today, we’re craving this gorgeous Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake. You can find it at Starring Rolls in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Or instead, try your hand at a round or two of Disney Food Blog Bingo!
Start with the Epcot and Magic Kingdom Cards. And if you’re still hungry, you can find brand new cards for Epcot and Magic Kingdom, plus versions for snacking through Animal Kingdom and Studios, in the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining 2015!
