Longtime residents will remember when Pointe Orlando first opened back in 1997. It was quite an asset to I-Drive and now it’s even bigger and better! You and your partner will find endless ways to enjoy a night out on the Pointe.
Try something different and make your date shout “Opa” at Taverna Opa with 2-for-1 drinks, cheap appetizers, and half price cocktail pitchers. Heat up and add a little spice to your night at Cuba Libre with sangria, mojitos and bar bites! No matter your palette, there’s a happy hour at Pointe Orlando to satisfy any craving!
2. Dinner and Dancing on I-Drive.
3. A Dinner of Epic Proportions

Near, far, wherever you are… you must flock to Titanic – The Artifact Exhibit for a one-of-a-kind date. Only available on Fridays and Saturdays, make it the date of all dates at the ever-impressive Titanic Gala Dinner where you’ll be a guest at one of the most famous dinner parties in history! This event will surely be "a night to remember!"

The ICEBAR – is sure to heat up any date. Grab a coat and be prepared to feel the chill. Both establishments are equipped with a full bar to help heat you up and a warming room! Your date won’t know if the tingle they’re feeling is from their love for you or their toes thawing out.
5. A Night Out at City Walk

When the tourists are away, the locals come to play at City Walk! Open until 2 am every night, you can sing like a Rockstar at City Walk’s Rising Star, sway to calming and rhythmic beats at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, be transportated to Bourbon Street at Pat O’Brien’s, or dance the night away with endless music and lights at the groove’s multi-level dance club! You and your date will both feel like a VIP at CityWalk!
6. Laugh Until You Can’t Laugh Any Harder

There’s nothing quite like a date at ICON Park, Home of The Wheel at Icon Park! Not only does this outdoor mall offer free parking (YES!), you’ll find all sorts of fun things to do without hitting the main attractions. Sip beer, listen to live music and enjoy delicious eats at Yard House and Uncle Julios!
If you want to make date night even sweeter, stop by Sugar Factory for a goblet, monster shake, or another sweet treat. If you’re feeling extraordinarily festive, hunker down for the King Kong Sundae and spend the night eating ice cream and sharing stories!
