This is a fun topic for me because we JUST returned from the World, and my husband and I got to have a fun little date one afternoon. It wouldn't be considered extravagant or even a "DREAM" date (in the sense we didn't do anything spectacular), but for us it was perfect!
The rest of my family went back to our hotel to rest and they took our two kids with them for their naps. The first thing we wanted to do was get a snack! We decided it was the perfect time to try an infamous Dole Whip for the first time - it did not disappoint!
My snack of choice: an ice cold Coca Cola and a Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Sandwich! YUM!!!!
We found a shady spot to sit down and just people-watched while enjoying our snacks. That is one of the luxuries of being at Disney World without your kids - you can just SIT and enjoy the scenery! We talked about how the trip had gone and why we love coming back to Disney. . .just lots of fun topics.
I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the Castle without corralling kids at the same time!
We knew the Haunted Mansion would be a little scary for our young kids, so we took the opportunity to ride! As usual, it was super fun!
One of my favorite areas is Liberty Square, and I never get to just stop and take pictures. So that's what I did!
We browsed Main Street U.S.A.....
...and watched a wonderful performance by our favorites, the Dapper Dans!
I wanted to get the kids new Mouse Ears (and a pair for our little girl who will arrive in May!), so I stopped in Le Chapeau. I was so excited to see the new "vintage" style felt Mouseketeer hats that were new since the last time we visited!
A few more scenery shots. . .
Our date in the Magic Kingdom (and a rare shot of just the two of us!)!
We made our way to the People Mover - one of our very favorites!
Where else can you find great views, cool breezes.....
....and a place to do this!?
It wasn't glamorous or incredibly exciting, but our date was perfect. It was just the two of us in the Magic Kingdom, taking it at a slow pace and taking the time to stop and enjoy the details. Aren't those the best dates anywhere?
