    My wife and I will be going to disney for the first time with our two kids. We are planning 1 date night out for just the two of us. How late does the babysitting service work, how much, and what would be the one can't miss date night for us?


    The baby sitting service Kids Nite Out, which is affiliated but independent from Disney, offers 24-hour service. I recommend you visiting their site to familiarize yourself with their program and costs.

    As to your date, obviously everyone has a different idea of the perfect date night. I will share mine, but feel free to write me a question directly from my bio page with more information about what you and your wife like so I can make other recommendations.

    For me, it's the California Grill. A beautiful view, no cartoon characters, and amazing food. It is pricey, but we save for this special occasion. Get a table on a night that Wishes is scheduled so that you can watch it from your table, or the veranda outside.

    Another great idea is to pick a restaurant at the Epcot World Showcase that has a cuisine that you both like. Arrive early, walk around the pavilions, do some shopping, and maybe get some "to-go" appetizers and drinks. After dinner watch IllumiNations!

    Some more revved-up choices could include hitting a park for a night of rollercoasters, or visiting Downtown Disney or the BoardWalk! 

    Have a magical vacation!
