Disney World Date Night: Magic Kingdom Edition

hands 

There’s nothing more fun that a good old fashioned Disney date night!  Getting all gussied up, walking hand in hand, butterflies in your stomach waiting for THE kiss!  Sigh!  I love that feeling!  I can’t imagine a better place than Disney World to go on a date!  First date or millionth date, Disney has created the mood, why not soak it up on a fabulous date night?  Let’s take a look at a couple of date options for the Magic Kingdom!

The Romantics:

Dinner


Tony’s Town Square is my recommendation for the hopeless romantic!  If spaghetti noodle kisses are your thing, then you’re in the right place!  Tony’s Town Square offers a variety of Italian dishes and provides a venue that is perfect for the lovely bella notte.  On you’re way out, stop and see Lady and the Tramp’s love forever set in cement just outside the restaurant.

What to do

Romance is what it is all about, take advantage of close seating in some of the most lovely rides available.  Cozy up as you take flight with Dumbo, kiss the girl as you travel under the sea on Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and for heaven’s sake, don’t miss out on a ride on Prince Charming Regal Carousel!  Whatever you do, make it about being together!  Enjoy every ride

The Perfect Ending

You can’t be a romantic and skip out on the fireworks!  Find a spot to sit or stand and hold hands as the fireworks of Wishes! Nighttime Spectacular cascades shimmers of magic over the Magic Kingdom.  Grab a dessert to share and you’ve pretty much got the perfect ending to a romantic night in the Magic Kingdom.  Of course, if you’re on the insider loop like me, then you’ll probably let the crowds rushing toward the exit die down as you enjoy Cinderella Castle and the Goodnight Kiss.  Then you’ll probably do a bit of Shopping in the Emporium and probably grab a coffee from the Main Street Bakery.  But that’s just me…

 

The Thrill Seekers

Dinner

Thrill seekers probably aren’t as worried about food as they are about having fun!  I won’t go so far as to say that the Magic Kingdom is the best spot for the thrill seeker, but I do think there are some exciting things to do!  The thrill seekers probably will grab dinner on the fly.  ADRs?  No thanks!  The true thrill seekers aren’t planners, they’ll see what the night brings.  Maybe a quick Turkey leg while rushing off to Big Thunder Mountain.  Maybe a last minute, impossible to grab table service with NO reservations, maybe just a series of desserts.  When you seek a thrill, the journey is the adventure!

What to do

Of course you’ll want to take on the thrills of the Magic Kingdom.  Those thrills can be found in the mountains:  Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain.  Soon, you’ll be able to defy the rails of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!  Maybe you’ll take on the pirate filled seas with Captain Jack Sparrow and crew over at Pirates of the Caribbean!  Maybe you’ll seek some spooky thrills over at the Haunted Mansion. Whatever the case, you adrenaline junkies will find your kicks in the Magic Kingdom!

The Perfect Ending

Thrill seekers want a challenge.  To you I offer these suggestions.

a.) Skip the crowds of the parades and fireworks and ride until you drop.  See if you can do all of the coasters in the kingdom before the night is over.

b.)  A  little healthy competition isn’t all that bad!  Why not challenge your date to a couple of thrills…See who wins big!  See who can ride space mountain the most times in a row.  Have a food challenge, see who can down the most __________ (I’d totally take the Mickey Bar challenge…).

 

The Kids at Heart

 Dinner

The kid at heart will want to take advantage of Character Dinning and perfectly posed pictures.  For the magic Kingdom, you’ll have a couple of choices.  You can go fully regal and dine in Cinderella Castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table, you can eat in the company of Belle and Beast at Be Our Guest, or you can let your true kid side show by enjoying a fun meal with Pooh and the Hundred Acre crew at the Crystal Palace.  Either way, bring a camera and your true childhood spirit!  The two of you are guaranteed to have a wonderful time.

 

What to do

What’s the best place for a kid to hang out?  I don’t think you can get any closer to childhood than the Magic Kingdom.  Complete with 7 lands to explore, you’ll probably find your inner kid tucked into every single detail.  Enjoy a romp through Fantasyland, eat cotton candy as you wait to meet a character, have two desserts.  Stay up till the park closes and catch every single moment of the fun!  Buy a silly hat, commemorate the night with a few goofy pictures. The kingdom is yours!

The Perfect Ending

A true kid knows the sense of wonder and amazement that comes with a parade.  There’s something about watching the twinkling lights of the Main Street Electrical Parade (especially when you have a genuine light up toy).  You can’t miss out on the whimsy of the parade and you can’t miss out on the wonder of Wishes!  You simply have to ride the last right, just one last time.  Make a made dash for Big Thunder Mountain.  Squeeze in an extra ice cream.  Be carefree and enjoy your time with the your sweetie!
