Some of the happiest couples surveyed often extol the virtues of regularly scheduled date nights. These dates, ranging from a simple candlelit dinner at home sans kids and pets to a no-holes barred marathon that might include dinner, dining and dancing, are thought to be key in establishing and maintaining successful relationships.  An even simpler date night could be a game of canasta and an ordered-in meal for two.  A daytime date might include a matinee at a cinema bistro.  Swan boat cruising around Lake Eola is never mundane and can be quite romantic at sunset. Whatever your preference, Orlando has plenty of options for you and your date to enjoy.
