Every time DW and I go to WDW, it's like a first date all over again.

It happens folks!

This very thing happened to me. I met my now husband on the DISboards in 2011 when we were both planning solo trips on this very board. We agreed to meet up. We met up and hung out but went our separate ways the next day. The following the day we agreed to meet up as we both had been thinking about each other a lot. We met up right outside Star Tours and decided to go to dinner together as an official date. We went to Narcoossee's walked up and asked for a table. I got to see the water pageant for the very first time. We then went into Magic Kingdom and watched wishes holding hands. It was EMH that night so we stayed and closed down the park. We then went back to his room at the contemporary which had a MK view and we talked until 4am. We had our first kiss on that balcony. I went back to my room and the next day he was supposed to leave. He ended up changing his plans and he stayed with me until I left. He went back to chicago and I went home to texas. 1 month later he came to texas and we become official, another month later he moved to texas and on our 1 year anniversary we got married. We will be married 9 months on April 1st.

I met my (now) fiance 2 years ago when we were both CMs working at the Tower of Terror. I know, romantic place right? Our 1st date was Fantasmic because he had never seen it and walking the Poly beach until we got kicked off about 3 am. We have since moved out of Orlando but he proposed last September during a visit in the TOT library after the preshow. It was perfect for us! I only wish we could have gotten our engagement pics when we were there!

I did consider a Disney wedding, but it's just not in the budget for us especially because we both have large families. So I'm settling for a Disney cruise honeymoon

I am running the 10 miler, probably with my mom...can't seem to get the fiance motivated enough to do it with me! If she can't run, I'll do it solo! But yes, hopefully we will run into each other, I'd love to meet some others from the boards. I haven't been lucky enough to have a Dismeet yet!

My fiancé and I had our first date at Disneyland! That was in 2005, and now we're getting married at the Swan in November.

Hi everyone! Found this board because I was curious if anyone had a 1st date at Disney... Well... I have one coming up on Easter Sunday 3/31 at the Magic Kingdom! We met online 2 weeks ago and the idea sort of started as a joke.

Wish us luck!
Paul

Good luck! I hope you have a wonderful time, and lots to talk about. And hopefully the crowds aren't too crazy for you two!

I had a "friend date" last year with a college classmate I hadn't seen in a few years. She and I went to La Hacienda de San Angel, which was the first time eating there for both of us. We then went over to France for dessert, watched the fireworks, and then went back for a drink at Boardwalk before I saw her off at the bus stop. We're just friends, and that's what the understanding was, but it laid a pretty good template in my mind for what a great Disney date would be like with the right person.

I worked at Disneyland in 80's and took my now-wife there for our first date. I was a poor college student but could sign us in to the park for free. Dinner was burgers at the Stage Door cafe in Frontierland. We talked and talked and really hit it off. We were married three years later and as fate would have it, Epcot was opening up and Disney offered this incredible deal to Disneyland cast members of round trip airfare, 7 nights in a hotel, park admissions, a behind the scenes tour and our cast member discounts applied to merchandise (35% at that time) and the whole thing was (wait for it) $500 per person. Airfare actually dropped between the time we booked to when we got there, and Walt Disney Travel had a rebate check for us (around $120 back I think) when we arrived. Amazing. There were lots of Disneyland cast members there, and WDW held a special reception for all of us when we arrived. So we had our honeymoon at Walt Disney World and got to see a brand new Epcot. 5 years ago, we celebrated our 25th anniversary at Wilderness Lodge and had, if you can believe it, even more fun than our honeymoon. It was just the two of us for four days and we never ran out of things to talk about. We are returning again this year, but not for the 30th anniversary we just celebrated (my wife is not quite the Disney fanatic I am) but because my daughter is graduating from college (cum laude) and she chose WDW to celebrate!
