What are the best Disney World dates?
Do you think Disney World is just for kids? I am going to tell you why this couldn’t be more untrue.
There are lots of adult-geared activities at the Walt Disney World Resort, including romantic activities for couples.
It’s a great place for couples to celebrate an anniversary or honeymoon.
The Disney World night life can be very romantic, with fine dining, great entertainment, whimsical settings, and, of course, fireworks!
These are the some of the best Disney World activities for adults and couples.
Dine in Style at Victoria & Albert’s
Victoria & Albert’s (V&A) has been around since 1988, and there is good reason for its reputation and longevity.
V&A has earned AAA’s highest achievement, the Five Diamond Award since 2000. It has also achieved “Forbes Travel Guide” Four Star rating and glowing reviews from Zagat and others.
According to Disney, “Victoria & Albert’s features modern American cuisine with exquisite ingredients sourced from around the world, including truffles from Italy, Russian Osetra caviar, beef from Japan, poulet rouge from North Carolina and shrimp from local Florida waters.”
From the elegance of the Main Dining Room to the privacy and Queen Victoria’s Room, diners will enjoy benefits such as a harpist, personalization from a sommelier, specialty cocktails, a champagne trolley, butter carving and a cheese gueridon.
Not only does Victoria and Albert’s have a world-class wine collection featuring a diverse collection of over 700 selections with 4,200 bottles in the cellar, but you can also opt for the sought-after Chef’s table.
At the Chef’s table, you’ll actually be seated in the kitchen. Here, award-winning Chef, Scott Hunnel, will begin the evening with a champagne toast. Your evening will be personalized and consist of up to 13 courses from caviar to Maine scallops to Japanese beef.
Victoria and Albert’s is a gem where adults can relax and enjoy award-winning food from an accolade-filled restaurant in a romantic atmosphere.
Take the Highway in the Sky Dine-Around
The new Highway In the Sky Dine Around is a sequenced 5-course dinner option taking you for a trip around the monorail. You’ll stop stopping at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Polynesian Resort, and the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Can you even imagine the fun you can have on this exciting evening adventure?
Beginning at the Contemporary, you’ll visit The Wave…of American Flavors and enjoy a delicious appetizer and cocktail gearing you for your upcoming dining extravaganza.
Afterward, you’ll walk directly onto a reserved monorail car – with no waiting -and head over to the Polynesian.
At the Poly, you’ll dine in South Pacific-themed paradise, enjoying island-inspired libations and appetizers at Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace.
Then, you’ll hop back on board the monorail and head over to the luxurious Victorian-style Grand Floridian Resort. At the Grand Floridian, you’ll enjoy Chef’s specially-selected main course options from the award-winning, Citrico’s.
After your main course, you’ll sit and relax while sipping champagne and enjoying an artisanal selection of cheeses before embarking to your final destination. I can think of no other way to enjoy an evening in Disney World!
After leaving Citrico’s, you’ll come full circle as you board the monorail for one last time, landing at Disney’s Contemporary Resort where you and your Dine-Around friends will enjoy an assortment of cordials, coffee, and desserts on a private patio while watching the evening Magic Kingdom fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle.
This new experience launched in December 2016, and costs $150 per person, which does include gratuity and drinks.
Watch Happily Ever After at the Fireworks Dessert Party
If the Highway in the Sky Dine Around it a bit too much, the Fireworks Dessert Party at the Tomorrow Land Terrace may be a better fit for you.
You’ll start at the Tomorrow Land Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, where you’ll enjoy desserts and (nonalcoholic) beverages.
Then you’ll head out to the terrace where you’ll be seated to watch the fireworks comfortably with a great view.
This activity runs $79 per adult ($47 for children ages 3-9). Of course, you’ll also need a Magic Kingdom ticket to get access to the park.
