Not sure if this really counts, but my BFF met her DH in Disneyland. Her dad was DH's boss (talk about awkward) and they were on a business trip in DL. Since BFF is an only child, she and her mom often accompanied dad on these trips.

Her parents thought this guy would be perfect for her, so they were sort've forced together a lot in the beginning of the trip. Despite some bad first impressions, they really hit it off! They always say now that their first date was in DL. They had a Disney themed wedding and honeymooned in WDW.

They just had their first child (my goddaugher : ) a week ago today!

My wife and I are going to DW for our 25th Anniversary in May and one of the activities we have talked about is to pretend to meet for the first time at Epcot. We are leaving the Boardwalk Resort at separate times and hopefully will have a chance encounter with each other that will turn into a first date thingy at DW. It might sound kind of corny, but DW is our favorite place to visit and finding love there for the first or (25th year later) second time will be an interesting experience for us

I met my DH at WDW (we were both working there at the time). We had our first date at Disney, he proposed at Disney, we got married at Disney (then moved away) and now we are taking our DS there for his first trip this December! First dates at Disney are magical! I have the best memories of some of our early dates - going to MNSSHP, eating at one of the resorts, hanging around DTD for a movie/dinner, taking a free fireworks cruise on Bay Lake.

Might have first date at Disney World this summer

Some time ago I met a guy on a message board. We talk almost every night. He lives in southern Florida, I live in NY.
He has never been to a Disney Park. I practically grew up at Disney Land, being from San Diego County originally. I have also been to the Florida park a few times. He knows I love Disney. I know he loves Star Wars... just so happens that Disney has an awesome Star Wars ride!
At one point, I thought it'd be awesome for us to meet at Star Tours, it's Disney meets Star Wars (Me & David ). I didn't say anything though, 'cause I didn't want him to feel pressured and he has a lot going on. Anyway, a few days ago he brought it up that maybe we should meet at Disney World. !!!
So maybe we will meet at the Star Wars ride. - I have to pray that my back can handle it. I was there before they changed the ride and my back was okay with that ride...
There are other rides that I'm sure he'll like too, mostly in Epcot.
I'll try to remember to post here once we have plans (a date) to meet up and again on how things went.
The great thing here is that it is public and the fun is built-in!

What did you plan? or do? Where did you stay that night? Tell me your stories or if you haven't tell me your ideas, what would make your Date magical ladies? I just think it'd be magical to find someone you like online to have that first date at the world. Who knows we can all dream right?

I love all the magical stories! A first date at Disney would be both magical and a great way to get to know someone's personality. My mom kept hoping I would meet someone when we were there in May. My fiancé and I parted ways last year and she is chomping at the bit for grand kids. Yikes. Lol.

This is such a fantastic thread! The stories are beautiful. Planning two solo running trips in Jan at Disneyland, and Feb at Disneyworld, and it's really nice to dream of at least making some new friends while at the parks, if not the all out dreamy prospect of having a first date there

It'd be memorable for sure. I'm solo on Halloween (mnsshp) if anyone is interested!

I think a first date at Disney would be awesome.
..Any date at Disney work work though, really...

Being out of state kinda kills that for me.

Not corny. It made me smile and laugh.

Have fun!

No, to the question. But it would be nice to have my last one there.

Whoops, that sounds pretty off since it's Halloween.
