Disney Springs

Enjoy a cocktail and appetizer at Jock Lindsey’s Hanger Bar or fine dining at Morimoto Asia, the Boathouse, or Paddlefish. Stroll the promenade while you shop and snack at over 50 eateries and 110 stores. For a fee you can enjoy a romantic ride in an Amphicar on Lake Buena Vista or take in breathtaking views of the Walt Disney World Resort in the Aerophile balloon. No Theme Park Ticket Required.

Senses Spa

Enjoy a relaxing day at Senses Spa at one of two locations (The Grand Floridian Resort and Saratoga Springs Resort) at Walt Disney World. Senses Spa features a quiet and relaxing environment providing facials, massages, body wraps and aromatherapy. You may want to try the couples massage. The best part, you can spend all day using the amenities after your massage.

Magic Kingdom Area Lounges & Dining

The Walt Disney World Resort is home to some terrific resort based lounges and signature dining. The Magic Kingdom area is the perfect place to start your Disney date night. You can start with a visit Mizner’s at the Grand Floridian to sample some drinks while listening to the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra. The Grand Floridian also offers not one but two signature restaurants. Enjoy fine dining at Narcoossee’s and Cítricos or splurge for an AAA five diamond experience at Victoria & Alberts.

The Polynesian Village Resort boasts a unique experience at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. Trader Sam’s is a lively bar where the drinks are themed to match the atmosphere. If you order certain drinks your surroundings will react as your order arrives at your table. The Polynesian Resort is home to two table service restaurants; Kona Café and Ohana. Kona Café offers American cuisine with a bit of Asian flair. Ohana specializes in a Polynesian style menu served family style. If you plan an early evening meal at the Polynesian you may be right on time to view The Magic Kingdom fireworks from the resort’s beach; they even pipe in the music from the show.

The Contemporary Resort features a signature dining experience in the way of the California Grill. The California Grill is a restaurant that guests come back to time and time again.  Located at the top of the Contemporary Resort it offers spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom and Magic Kingdom fireworks.

The Wilderness Lodge is themed after the great National Park Lodges of the Pacific Northwest.  Enjoy open air seating at Geyser Point Bar & Grill or a romantic dinner at Artist Point, the lodges’ signature restaurant.  From Geyser Point you can enjoy the nightly Electrical Water Pageant.  Stroll the grounds of the Wilderness Lodge and experience the Fire Work Geyer and its hourly display.

EPCOT Area Lounges and Dining

The EPCOT area is another great place for a Disney date night with countless options.  The Boardwalk alone offers Flying Fish, Trattoria al forno, AbracadaBar and unique entertainment options.  You can catch the game at the ESPN Club, enjoy desert at Ample Hills Creamery, sing along at Jellyrolls the dueling piano bar or dance the night away at the Atlantic Dance Hall.

The Yacht Club is home to Yachtsman Steakhouse, while the Beach Club serves a seafood buffet for dinner at Cape May Café.

Theme Parks

The Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and EPCOT each feature at least one desert party which are perfect for a Disney date night! The desert parties are designed to provide a dedicate view of the nighttime entertainment along with some delectable deserts and beverages. At The Magic Kingdom you can stroll through the park enjoying the nighttime atmosphere and taking a spin on Space Mountain while enjoying a dole whip or citrus swirl. EPCOT calls you to explore World Showcase while taking in some of the spectacular entertainment and food.  Hollywood Studios offers great entertainment from Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular to the Star Wars Fireworks along with some of the most thrilling rides on Walt Disney World Property. Animal Kingdom has recently bloomed into a park to be explored in the evening. Enjoy the beautiful land of Pandora or the enchanting nighttime show, Rivers of Light.  Catch a late night safari and dine at Tiffin’s, a signature restaurant inspired by the travels of the Imagineers who created The Animal Kingdom.
