Magical date idea: dinner and a movie at Disney Springs


Disney Springs offers the perfect setting for a date with all of its many dining options and experiences, including AMC DINE-IN Disney Springs 24. This AMC theater is located in the middle of the magic of Disney Springs and is a great starting point. leaving for an appointment. to remember. They offer several types of theaters within this movie theater. In this blog post, I’ll go over everything you need to know to have the best experience possible.

Parking and Getting to AMC DINE-IN Disney Springs

Self-parking is always free at Disney Sources. I recommend parking in the Orange Garage on the second level. There are two entrances to Garage Orange, one will take you into the first level and the other will take you into the third level.

Follow the signs to the second level. Why the second level? This is where the security checkpoint is as well as the escalators that take you to Disney Springs and the only level with access to Disney Springs. If the surface lot is open near the Cirque Du Soleil theater, you can park there as it is a relatively short walking distance to the AMC theaters from there.

The Cirque du Soleil Disney Springs Theater is a large white tent-like building.  It is at the end of the West Side in Disney Springs.

The pavement is wet because this photo was taken on a rainy night.

If you pre-purchased your movie tickets, I recommend arriving at Disney Springs about 30 minutes before your movie starts to allow you to find a parking spot and get to the theater. If you plan to buy your ticket at the theater be prepared for a queue – when I visited in April 2022 I noticed a queue to buy a ticket as the theater was apparently short of staff.

After parking and going through security in Orange Garage, you will enter Disney Springs via an escalator and the AMC DINE-IN Theater will be immediately on your left. Previously this east entrance to the theater was for food halls only, but that has now changed and people seeing a movie in any type of theater can enter through this entrance.

Grab your favorite treat and take it to your seat! You can now also order your concessions on mobile via the AMC application. When you arrive at the theater, head to the Express Pick-Up kiosk near the concessions.

On the east side of the theater, where all the Dine-In Delivery to Seat theaters are, there is a counter where you can order from a full menu of starters, main courses and desserts. To place an order at this counter, you must see a movie at one of the Dine-In cinemas.

What’s a date without a meal or a treat before or after your movie? At Disney Springs, there are tons of options. I will focus on restaurants near the AMC DINE-IN Disney Springs 24.

Jaleo – Make a reservation or sit at the bar at this wonderful Spanish restaurant with an extensive tapas menu. This is an ideal location for night dates, as the surroundings are beautiful whether you choose to sit inside or sit on the terrace overlooking the water. I recommend ordering some tapas and a pitcher of sangria.

Salt & Straw – This famous ice cream parlor just opened in Disney Springs in April 2022. Salt & Straw was founded in Portland, Oregon, and has made a name for itself with its unique flavors such as pear and blue cheese, olive oil, olive and almond crisp, and savory ganache. Flavors change often and all main ingredients are locally sourced.

City Works Eatery & Pour House – This beer bar offers 90 local and global craft products on tap and American fare in a casual environment. They serve brunch on Saturdays and Sundays until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, they have a happy hour that offers $2 drafts and half-price bites.

Restaurant & Bar House of Blues – House of Blue is a popular entertainment venue, but did you know they also have a restaurant? They serve southern dishes like po’boys and jambalaya, but I highly recommend the fried chicken! As with all restaurants in Disney Springs, I recommend a reservation, but bar seating is also available.

Glazed donuts and cold infusion – This donut shop is known for its huge donuts. It doesn’t stop at donuts. They also serve burgers and sandwiches – all of which you can order to be served on a grilled glazed donut. Everglazed is great fun and perfect for a casual date.
