Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are sharing some Disney inspired date ideas.
Looking for a great idea for date night but you want to add a little Disney magic? Only at Walt DIsney World can you stroll hand in hand with your BAE through not just one, but 11 romantic countries in one evening (OK, honestly you are going to need to make an entire day out of this – there is so much to do!) Check out our list of suggestions for your magical Disney date night. We have ideas for each of the 11 pavilions featured in EPCOT’s World Showcase!
What to eat – cheat and stop at the Refreshment Port just outside the pavilion and grab a croissant doughnut
What to drink – try a Labbatt Blue Light or a Moosehead lager beer
What to do (ride or shop or see) – shop for maple flavored popcorn and candy
Where to take a cute picture – near the totem poles or in the gardens near Le Cellier steakhouse
What to eat – fish and chips
What to drink – try a Pimm’s cup or a black and tan at the Rose and Crown Pub
What to do (ride or shop or see) – the Rose and Crown Pub features a pianist at random times earlier in the day, or check out Quickstep – a UK quartet
Where to take a cute picture – you can find both Alice (in wonderland) and Mary Poppins in the UK pavilion, but don’t forget to get a selfie in the iconic red phone booth!
What to eat – macaron ice cream sandwich from L’Artisan Des Glaces
What to drink – Kir Royale from Les Vins des Chefs de France
What to do (ride or shop or see) – shop for a new signature scent in Plume et Palette
Where to take a cute picture – anywhere you can capture the Eiffel Tower in the background
What to eat – we love the hummus fries at Spice Road Table, otherwise grab some baklava from Tangierine Cafe (it’s a quick serve!)
What to drink – try out the Ouzo set up you’ll find at Spice Road Table – no reservations? They have a lovely full bar.
What to do (ride or shop or see) – meet Princess Jasmine or catch one of Matbouhka Groove’s performances – they are one of the only bands you’ll catch later in the evening
Where to take a cute picture – try on the Fez hats you’ll find at most of the shops in this pavilion
What to eat – green tea ice cream from Katsura Grill
What to drink – hot sake and a frozen Kirin
What to do (ride or shop or see) – shop for interesting candy at Mitsukoshi, you can also harvest your own pearl from an oyster of your choosing. The drummer girls of Matsuriza are also a great show to catch if you can
Where to take a cute picture – have a photopass photographer snap your photo while you show off your best martial arts moves outside the large pagoda
What to eat – try a funnel cake from the funnel cake stand for some American fried goodness – they have chocolate syrup
What to drink – Mmmhops Pale Ale from Fife and Drum Tavern – as much fun to drink as it is to sing it!
What to do (ride or shop or see) – the Voices of Liberty are an acappella group that is definitely the highlight of the American pavilion. You’ll find them in the lobby of the American Adventure throughout the day
Where to take a cute picture – America is directly across the lagoon from Future World, try for a photo with Spaceship Earth in the background, this is the best spot for a straight on pic
What to eat – gelato from the gelato kiosk
What to drink – limoncello shots from the kiosk. Trust us, you need these in your life.
What to do (ride or shop or see) – Indulge in wine tasting and relax near the fountain with the statue of Neptune.
Where to take a cute picture – there is lovely fountain in the back of the pavilion where you can snap a selfie with King Neptune
What to eat – Karamell-Küche (caramel corn to non-German speaking folk)
What to drink – German beers and jagermiester shots from Trinken (the beer cart)
What to do (ride or shop or see) – visit the Weinkeller to sample wine or ooh and aww over the cuddly stuffed pets in Der Teddybar.
Where to take a cute picture – pose with Snow White or snap a selfie with a giant pretzel
What to eat – eggrolls!
What to drink – Tipsy Ducks in Love (has Bourbon Whiskey, coffee, black tea, cream and chocolate syrup)
What to do (ride or shop or see) – check out the shop across from Lotus Blossom Cafe – they have an assortment of puppets for sale
Where to take a cute picture – you’ll find Mulan here, if you miss her a pic in front of the Chinese Hall of Prayer (wearing a bamboo hat, of course) will work just fine
What to eat – school bread from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe
What to drink – Linie Aquavit Glacier Shot (tastes similar to Jagermiester) or try the viking coffee (flavored with Kamora coffee liqueur and Baileys Irish Cream) – also at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe
What to do (ride or shop or see) – Frozen Ever After, of course!
Where to take a cute picture – pose with the giant troll inside the Fjording gift shop
What to eat – share a huge plate of nachos at La Cantina de San Angel, or try the churros if you want something sweet – they are different from the churros you’ll find at the carts around the park
What to drink – for now, Mexican beer. Look for Choza Tequila bar coming soon – the margaritas will be back!
What to do (ride or shop or see) – poke around the bazaar inside the giant pyramid or meet Donald dressed in his sombrero and poncho
Where to take a cute picture – wearing one of the giant sombreros you’ll find in the outside marketplace
There is so much to do and see in the World Showcase. You probably won’t be able to squeeze it into just ONE date night – or even one full day. Take your time, relax and enjoy all that the showcase has to offer. Even if you never make it out of the first country, you’ll have memories that last you a lifetime.
