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!

Frugal Disney

titleThis post is for Visitors and Florida Residents Alike.

Here are some of The Frugal Travel Mom’s Frugal tips to Disney.



FRUGAL TICKETS, ok this is for residents only:

It pays to live here.

Disney knows what a Florida summer is like and they reward us residents with some perks, as minor as they may be.

You gotta get in to the park so an annual pass is the way to go!

Florida Weekday Select Pass is,(as of this writing Jan 2015, $275.84 or $112 down and $13.66 a month.

You can only visit weekdays, think less people, and have black-out dates during hot summer and bust spring break and holidays. It’s all 4 parks, park hopper, free parking, MagicBand,¬†and more!



Pack a lunch. The large lockers at Magic Kingdom can hold a decent size cooler. Get a few lockers, take a sheet and or blanket. Eat right there at the lockers and nearby benches.

The train station is right above the lockers so use it to get back there for lunch or maybe when you’re done grab the train to a far off land…

–> Side note on eating. While I am a huge fan of traveling frugal, I am also a fan of doing special things to make memories. I love to eat at Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom. Make a reservation ASAP and you can book up to 180 days in advence.
