Date Night Ideas at Disney World

When you’re with your significant other, every day at Walt Disney World is magical!

I know it’s super cheesy, but when you’re spending 24/7 with each other during a vacation, there’s a difference between a regular day at a “Date Night”. This article will bring a few ideas to the forefront when you’re thinking about a fun date night at Disney!

Here are the Top Date Night Ideas at Disney World


Find a spot on Main Street USA and get ready to be amazed through Disney storytelling at it’s finest…with fireworks and projection mapping technology on Cinderella’s Castle! Keep the phone/camera in your pocket and just enjoy each other’s company, because it’s those moments that truly make a Disney vacation memorable!


I can’t say it enough, but the World Showcase is a completely different experience after the sun goes down. Most of the families end up at the Magic Kingdom, which allows for lighter crowds at EPCOT. Grab an adult beverage (alcoholic or not) and explore the inner workings of the pavilions!

The first time that someone asked me about Jellyrolls while I was on contract, I thought they were asking me about recommendations for doughnuts! After doing a little research, I realized that a duelling piano bar on the Boardwalk with Disney folks 21+ requesting the most obscure songs….is perfect for any fun evening after the parks!

We may (or may not) be alone on this one,  but I like Dole Whips and my partner likes LeFou’s Brew. Being that a Date Night can happen at 2pm in the afternoon, sharing a frozen beverage from Gaston’s Tavern or in Pandora is a fun treat! Plus, who shares a Dole Whip?! 😉


The Edison, which you may know as the newly minted themed restaurant at Disney Springs has a secret…

It has a special surprise that happens after 10pm from Thursday to Saturday nights. I would spoil it, but there are some things that you just want to put on your list without really knowing exactly what you’re getting into. BTW, there is a dress code for this timeframe, so dress to impress!


I had to put this on the list, because Disney is so much more than basic theme park fare. We’ve got a list of the best Romantic Restaurants at Disney World here, but just remember that a signature dining reservation is always just a couple clicks!

There’s our list! Hope that it helps you with ideas about a great Date Night at Walt Disney World!
