5 Unique Date Night Options in Central Florida

Are you tired of  the same old thing when it come to date night, dinner and a movie? Well, if you are, here are five unique date night options that are sure to get you out of your date night rut.

1. Disney Boardwalk

Disney’s Boardwalk  is located near the Epcot Resorts at 2101 Epcot Resorts Boulevard, which is off of Buena Vista Boulevard. The Boardwalk is a charming village with superb dinning, distinct shops and a great nightlife.  But, the best part of this destination is that it is FREE.  I have visited the boardwalk many times and perhaps one of the best parts of the visit has been the laid-back pace—which makes for a perfect romantic evening. You can take a stroll along the boardwalk, then, sit at a table by Crescent Lake and watch as the Fireworks from Epcot illuminate the sky.

2. Chocolate Museum & Café

Who doesn’t love chocolate, right? Well, if you or your sweet-heart is a chocolate lover then The Chocolate Museum & Café  is a must see. You must begin with The Chocolate Museum Tour. The experience begins with a taking a tour of all- things-chocolate, where you learn about cocoa and its origins. Then you are transported into the museum that has 25 solid chocolate sculptures of the world’s most known landmarks. Then, into another room you go, where the tasting begins! The tour takes about 45 minutes and there are many different package options to choose from—depending on your budget.  The ‘Wine & Chocolate Pairing’ is $24.99 per person. The ‘Date Night’ $29.99 per person and the ‘Sparkling Time’ is $17.90 per person.

3. The Orlando Eye

The Orlando Eye in the new must-see attraction in Central Florida, located at 8401 International Dr., Orlando, FL.  You can now revel in the best views Orlando has to offer, all from 400 feet in the air. Their Private Capsules are designed for the romantic at heart. There are three different Private Capsule packages to choose from, each includes anything from priority boarding, to champagne, to two 20 minute rotations. This is the perfect romantic evening if you want some alone-time with your sweet-heart, far away from the busy world. Though it’s not free, it’s pretty inexpensive compared to the many attraction in Central Florida; $20 per adult, if you purchase tickets online, or $18 if you’re a Florida resident.

4. Helicopter Ride

How about a helicopter ride with Air Florida Helicopters? They are located at 8990 International Dr, Orlando, FL, and this is thinking out of the box for date night. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a helicopter in my back yard, so getting the opportunity to see the city in a new way is a hell yeah for me. The best part of all is that it is only $20 per adult (there’s an additional $14 fuel surcharge for each passenger). They too have a lot of different tours to choose from, but this one takes you along an 8 mile journey over Sea Word, Discovery Cove, The Orange County Convention Center, Peabody Hotel, Rosen Centre Hotel and the The Pointe of Orlando Shopping Complex.

5. Hot Air Balloon Ride

Let’s stay up in the air, shall we! Characters in Flight...Operated by Aerophile  is located at Disney Springs and is the world’s largest tethered helium balloon.  The name of the attraction is perfect, as you feel like a Disney character yourself, soaring high in the air through the magic iconic land of Disney World. The ride is about 8-10 minutes long, you have 360-degree views of Disney springs and the tickets are only $20 per person.

There you have it, five unique date night experiences for you.
