Mickey Mouse Romance
By FELICIA DOMES
Who would have thought that Mickey Mouse and romance go together?
Not exactly unknown to all of us Florida residents, Disney's Magic
Kingdom can be a wonderful surprise for
lovers of all ages.
Mostly filled with
families, the happiest place on earth also doubles as quite the
romantic oasis. Every day the popular theme park is host to an average
45,000 guests most of whom depart with the descending sun. Noisy
full service restaurants become intimate boudoirs often revealing
facets which often go by unnoticed. Where else in America can two
love birds take a walk along peaceful water channels slowly curling
around a seventeen century castle? Or enjoy enchanting fireworks
from a skyway shuttle riding 150 feet above ground? Walt had no
idea his vision would one day become a lover's paradise, aren't
you glad all this romance is only minutes away?
As if this culinary
splendor wasn't enough, Florida residents get to enjoy discounted
rates almost all year round. From specials
on annual passes to rebates on single day admission, locals benefit
from a wide array of deals. "We come out at least once a year
for a romantic night out" says Don Langston, an Orlando business
man. Don adds "We also loves bringing the kids around thanksgiving
but one night each winter, we book a room at the Grand [Floridian]
and let grandma look after Johnny and Gen. I love the prime rib
at the Royal Table and [my wife] Lori usually has the salmon. It's
just a perfect night with the Mouse!"
romantic walk by magnificent fountains is only the beginning. The
Magic Kingdom also offers the utmost in poetic scenery. Steps away
from Cinderella's castle you will find numerous havens where couples
can quietly share a magical kiss giving way to spectacular fireworks--
Disney's trademark throughout the world!
Staying off the beaten
path is key to enjoying a lover's night out at any Disney theme
park, this is specially true of the Magic Kingdom. Luckily the park
was designed according to specific themes which all cater to different
elements of entertainment. It is at the center of the park, within
the castle itself that you will find the parks most romantic eatery,
Cinderella's Royal Table. Though reservations are strongly recommended,
walk-ins can often be accommodated. Well worth the wait, the Royal
Table is exactly that and then some. Five star meals served by an
extraordinary staff among a charming seventeen century dining room
always seem to work their magic.
wait! there's more! If medieval isn't your thing, then how about
succulent French delicacy? Or Mexican? Norwegian maybe? Japanese
gastronomic diversity, Walt Disney World has come a long way since
fast food and ice cream bars. Catering
to a more discriminating clientele, Disney resorts and theme parks
feature mouth watering dining as well as a delightful ambiance for
those looking to rekindle a romance or simply take a night off from
the commotion brought on by everyday life.
Remembering to thank
the Lord is key to the perfect night at Disney, after all if He
didn't approve of Mickey Mouse romance, He would let us know!
