Mommy-Daughter Date in NYC

montclair-state-train-station

On a recent stay in Northern New Jersey, Aubry and I headed into New York City for the day. I had a 3 o’clock photo shot with Keith Barraclough for The Redhead Project so we figured it was the perfect excuse to explore the city.

It had been to New York City 10 years earlier, to the month and it was Aubry’s first time in the city!

Aubry loves trains and trolleys, buses and subways… public transportation really so this was a fun trip for her.

We parked at the Red Hawk Deck Parking Garage in Montclair, New Jersey and walked the short bit to the Montclair Heights station on NJ Transit headed for New York Penn Station.

7 Date Night Ideas on Your Disney Vacation

Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you can’t grab a date night.

For child care options read The Frugal Travel Mom’s Guide to Childcare at Disney World.

Now that you have the kiddos taken care of the next step is to decide what you’re going to do.

Here Are:

The Frugal Travel Mom’s 7 Date Night Ideas while on Your Disney Vacation


1. Disney Springs at Night

Disney Springs at night is awesome. The lights on the water, the atmosphere and the activities presented make this a go to for the locals as well.

Ride the hot air balloon, eat dinner, order chocolate, shop or just simply sit and relax. Whatever your budget or interests Disney Spring will not disappoint.

2. Cirque du Soleicirque2

I know this is at Disney Springs but I feel it needs it’s own section. Pricey, but worth it; we missed our early showing tickets and they found us seats for the late show, strolling Disney Springs and a fabulous show make for a great date night.

3. Hit the Parks

There no reason why you can’t cut a day with the family short and return again that night with your date!

It’s your vacation at Walt Disney World,

you’ve saved and planned,

packed and arrived.

While it is a blast with the whole family it’s also important for the grown ups to get a little child free time.

One way and the easiest is to bring along a baby sitter. Grandparents work best, especially if they are free to be on their own schedule as well as be your in house babysitter. Another idea is for older children to watch the younger ones, maybe even pay them or order pizza in the room for a kids night in.

If bringing a babysitter just isn’t in your plans then Disney has their own solution.
