Creative Date Night Ideas Orlando | Inside Scoop

Wedding Planning Orlando

We’re on the hunt for topics that our couples want to know more about when it comes to our fair city. A recent search that caught our attention was “Creative Date Night Ideas Orlando.” This one was too fun to pass up!

Today we’re dishing out our favorite date night stories and ideas. Read on to learn what the Just Marry! team had to say!


My ideal date night is dinner out at a lovely restaurant and good seats at the theater. I was lucky enough to have this type of date last week with my husband. We had an amazing dinner at Kres Chophouse followed by a performance of “Hamilton” at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center.


I admit it: I’m a homebody! I love picking up some microwaveable buttered popcorn and movie candy and curling up next to my hubby to catch up on our latest TV binge-watching or enjoying a movie. Sometimes we’ll have game night instead, which is just as fun! The nicest thing about this inexpensive date night idea? I can stay in my comfy clothes!

BONUS TIP: If you’re not from around Orlando but want to cash in on my inexpensive date night idea, check out the Picture Show @ Marketplace at Altamonte Springs where you can see movies for as little as $1!


I went on my first date with Kim to Earls Kitchen at the Millenia Mall. As I believe most people would say, it’s all about the food and conversation! Earls has a wide variety of food to choose from, which I feel is great to help with those first date jitters of what to order.

I very much enjoy their sushi and truffle fries (and a nice red wine to sip). Who says you can’t mix the two, right?! This threw Kim for a loop, as he has never known a woman to be so (in his mind) “random” with her food selections, but he liked my uniqueness.

The atmosphere at Earls couldn’t be more perfect. It’s open and modern, but has these cozy booths that make you feel you’re in your own little world with your date. The entire space is dimly lit in the evening, making it more romantic. And, as you can guess, we talked the night away! Our entire experience was about a $$ on the expense scale.


My ideal date is dinner at an Italian restaurant, a round at TopGolf Orlando, and then ending the date with ice cream from Jeremiah’s Italian Ice or Cold Stone Creamery. Fun and delicious!


One of my favorite date night ideas is grabbing a quick, easy dinner and heading to Downtown Orlando to enjoy a comedy show at Sak Comedy Lab. My fiancé and I find ourselves laughing uncontrollably during the show! It’s the perfect date night after a long work week, or when you just need a night of giggles.

As far as cost, we keep it simple with popcorn, candy, and a couple of sodas during the show to stick within our date night budget. We always look forward to our next chance to catch another comedy show!


I always love the idea of an ice skating date! The RDV Sportsplex is great for this, as they offer fun public skate sessions with upbeat music. They even have themed nights!

Whether or not the two of you can skate, it’s fun finding your footing and rhythm with the other person. You’re bound to have a great time and experience plenty of laughs! Pair it with dinner in nearby Winter Park (I recommend Prato!) and you have the perfect night!


My favorite date night activity is going mini golfing. My husband and I met on Tinder and had our first date at the Fantasia Gardens Mini Golf Course at Walt Disney World. We have gone back there many times for a date night.

We’ve also gone to many other mini golf courses around Central Florida. With my husband being a golf coach, going mini golfing gives us something to do that we both enjoy. It also brings out the competitive side in me by hoping to beat him!
