In Part 1 of my Disney date night ideas I talked about things to do at Disney Springs and on the Magic Kingdom Resort monorail loop. Today I am going to discuss the EPCOT area and Mini Golf for a little activity and adventure!
The EPCOT Park is a great date night park! Adults usually love this park because of the World Showcase. Taking a stroll around the World Showcase and exploring the 11 countries is always a great time. The food and drinks from each country along with theming and shopping make this a fantastic place to take your special someone. One of my favorite restaurants is Tepan Edo in the Japan Pavilion. This is a hibachi style restaurant and the food and show are so much fun!
After your stroll around World Showcase take the International Gateway over to the EPCOT area resorts. These resorts are the Boardwalk, Disney’s Yacht Club and Beach Club. You will find great restaurants in each hotel along with many different Bars and Lounges to relax. You will also pass the Ample Hills Creamery, all I can say is yummy!! You have to stop in for a sweet treat to top off your dinner. If your looking for a little more activity than stop in the Atlantic Dance Hall for some great music and to dance the night away.
Also know that you can get to EPCOT from the Magic Kingdom on the monorail. Just take the monorail from Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center and transfer there to the EPCOT monorail. This gives you the option of starting your date early and playing in the Magic Kingdom for the day and then having a wonderful dinner over in the EPCOT area. What better way to spend the day together than to park hop!
Another activity that many couples enjoy is mini golf and Disney has some of the best courses I have played on. The theming is great at each. There is the Winter/Summer course, which is located near the Blizzard Beach Water Park. The winter course is themed to Christmas and Summer is very beachy. Then across from the Swan and Dolphin hotel you will find the Fantasia Gardens with two courses both based on the movie Fantasia. The one course is your traditional mini golf course and the other is based more on a professional golf course but in miniature scale. This course emphasizes on skill versus chance. You can actually walk here from the EPCOT resorts. Just head toward the Swan and Dolphin and walk through their grounds and across the street you will find the mini golf courses.
