Disney is thought of as a family destination, but it can also be the most romantic place on Earth! Throughout the parks and properties are restaurants, experiences and locations that are couple-friendly and ideal for an evening for two.
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort is one of the best date night locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Styled after the Atlantic City boardwalk of yesteryear, the resort boasts fantastic dining options, scenic views and adult-only entertainment options.
My suggestions for a memorable date night experience at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort…
The Flying Fish Café is a contemporary and modern restaurant with incredible cocktail options and an extensive menu. The menu includes steak, pork, pasta and several seafood dishes. For dessert, the PB&J Crème Brule is a favorite as well as the Trio of Boardwalk Concession Treats that makes for a great selection to share!
Jellyrolls is a piano bar for guests over the age of 21 that offers great music and cocktails. The musicians take requests (my favorite is the “Ducktales” theme song) and sing-a-longs are encouraged. There is a cover charge associated with admission and further details including group reservations can be obtained by calling Jellyrolls at 407-560-8770.
Wanna’ Dance? Then the Atlantic Dance Hall is the place for you and your special someone. DJs play songs from the 80’s to current hits while you spend your evening on the dance floor. Check Disney’s website for announcements and theme nights prior to your visit.
The BoardWalk features some carnival style games that encourage friendly competition. Play a few and win some fun prizes to take home that remind you of your date night.
Grab a funnel cake on the BoardWalk and head over to the bridge between the BoardWalk and Walt Disney World’s Swan and Dolphin resorts. Here, you will get a view of the Illuminations fireworks at Epcot starting at 9PM. You probably will not be able to hear the music from the show; however what could be more romantic than a terrific view and sharing some sweets with your sweetheart?
Whatever you choose to do during your time at the BoardWalk, you are sure to have a magical evening!
