Attractions in Orlando for couples goes beyond Mickey and Minnie to an array of romantic date nights and Florida excursions that are sure to impress your loved one. Orlando offers countless ways to say “I love you.” Here are a few date ideas in Orlando to build into your next couple’s getaway:
Share a decadent treat
If your mate has a sweet tooth, you’re in luck. The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal City Walk takes you back with a 19th century steampunk theme and over-the-top milkshakes. The full-service restaurant, bar and confectionery offers the classics plus an all-day brunch menu. Save room for dessert though — the artisan milkshakes make it impossible to choose just one.
If shared experiences are your thing, make time for a visit to downtown’s Farris and Foster’s Chocolate Factory, where you can create your own chocolate confections. Want a little wine with your chocolate? Make your way to Chocolate Kingdom where a chocolate expert will guide the two of you through a tasting tour of red and white wines paired with chocolates from around the world.
Take in a gorgeous vista
If stunning scenery sparks romance for you, Orlando is full of ways to enjoy it. Visit the Orlando Eye at sunset for an amazing view from 400 feet in the air. The Orlando Eye is the tallest observation wheel on the east coast and has 30 capsules that take just 23 minutes to make a full rotation. Enjoy the view with a regular ticket, or reserve a capsule for you and your sweetheart to take the journey solo.
Up for some adventure? Enjoy a romantic hot air balloon ride near the theme parks. Companies such as Bob’s Balloons and Orlando Balloon Rides launch near our Orlando resorts. If you crave dining with a view, The California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary resort offers an unparalleled view of the fireworks with the soundtrack piped in, while Capa, at the Four Season’s resort, allows you to enjoy the fireworks while dining al fresco.
Catch a show or game
If big city entertainment is more your couple style, head downtown to The Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts and catch a Broadway show. The spectacular new venue feels like an authentic Broadway theater and hosts incredible hit shows such as “Wicked” and “Hamilton.” For those who would rather catch a game, the home of the Orlando Magic is only a few steps away and seats for Orlando City Soccer and seasonal bowl games are easily arranged.
