Beauty & The Beast Themed Date

beauty-and-the-beast-movie-date-nightI love Disney themed dates. It lets me live the Disney life without actually going there. This date night is inspired by Beauty and the Beast. I love the story and the beautiful animation in the movie. In this date, you don’t necessarily have time to watch the movie unless that is a priority to you.  Since reading is Bell’s favorite pastime, this date is book themed. It is a totally FREE date and the meal cost pennies if you make it homemade.

Beauty & The Beast Movie Date Night

The menu:

The date is a bookstore date, but you could also go to a library. I got the original idea from The Dating Diva’s! Check out their site. It is awesome!! I switched up some of their tasks for ones I know me and my husband would enjoy.

#1 – Visit the COOKING section & chose a recipe that you would like to try. This could possibly turn in to another date night. My husband and I love trying out new recipes to try

#2 – Visit the MAGAZINE section & find a dream house, dream car, and dream “toy” to share with each other. I know with Pinterest can you do this electronically, but go old school and look through magazines.dream toysfinal

#3 – Visit the CHILDREN’S section & find a book that was a favorite when you were a child or that holds a special memory for you…and read them to each other when you meet back up. I read Pamela Purse, Ladies First from A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein! I loved Shel Silverstein, but liked Light int he Attic more than Where the Sidewalk Ends.

#4 – Visit the JOKE section and pick out a funny joke to share with your spouse. We ended up having a hard time with this one, many of the joke books are vulgar. We still found a couple books, but there were not many clean ones to choose from.

#5 – Visit the TRAVEL section and find a picture or information on a place you would like to visit someday. You can now travel anywhere with Disney with Adventures by Disney. I was so excited when I learned about that during the Christmas day parade. My husband was a fuddy duddy on this one. He said I know he wants to go to Disney only- so he didn’t grab a book. I did though, and it wasn’t WDW. IMAG0480

#6 – Visit the HISTORY section and find a person you admire and find 5 facts about that person you did not know to share. My husband and I are kind of geeks and love random facts.IMAG0479

#7 – Visit the RELIGION section and pick out an inspiring devotional to share. It was pretty cool to do a devotional during our date. Since we weren’t alone, our date was also somewhat of a testimony too!

We ended up spending about 2 hours at the bookstore. If Books a Million would of had comfortable seating we would have stayed longer. The only seats available were about 4 benches in the back near the magazines. Also a loud group of teens decided they would hang out there too, so it got rather unromantic very fast.

We went home and had a candlelit dinner and my husband put on some romantic music. It was such a lovely time. I felt like a princess. My husband has that affect on me. I am loved!

Since we didn’t want to watch the movie (we had watched it a couple days ago) we caught up on Grey’s Anatomy and enjoyed each others company.

How do you put Disney Magic into your life?


  • That is a really creative idea for date night! I think it is really important to find things fun and exciting to keep romance alive. I really like all your tips. I will have to get it a try. As for Disney we are planning a trip at the end of the year to go to Disney World.
