10 Ideas For An Adults Only Walt Disney World Trip

Are you a grown-up with a longing to go to Walt Disney World? You are not alone! Because of this, there are a never ending amount of activities and grown-up choices you can make at Walt Disney World. Here are just 10 ideas to get you started!

10. Go explore Disney’s Boardwalk!

Atlantic Dance Hall is for Guests who are 21 years of age or older. This elegant nightclub is topped with a twinkling ceiling of stars that shines down on the big dance floor. The AbracadaBar is a hidden gem! Check out this quaint lounge decorated with magicians’ accessories. If you can’t snag a table in this small space, you can sit outside on the Boardwalk or take your drink for a stroll as you walk around. Don’t miss Jellyrolls – a piano bar for adults over age 21 only. It’s the home of dueling pianos and audience sing-alongs at Disney. They are open until 2am most nights!

9. Choose a resort that is most ideal for adults.

Beyond the Boardwalk Inn, you will also find that the Beach Club, Yacht Club, as well as the Swan and Dolphin are super closes to that grown-up theme park (that happens to be great for kids too) Epcot! Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter have little boats that cruise over to Downtown Disney. Want something serene and peaceful? Animal Kingdom Lodge is a good option for adults who like to get away from the hustle and bustle. Bay Lake Tower, and the Grand Floridian are upscale and fancy. Coronado Springs has great dining options and quiet pools.

8. Oh the grown-up dining options!

No chicken nuggets required on this trip, and you won’t miss them one bit! Consider heading over to a signature dining location such as Yachtsman Steakhouse, Artist Point, Victoria and Albert’s, Jiko, Flying Fish, Narcoosee’s, California Grill, or even Le Cellier. Drink around the world at Epcot year-round or come for the Food and Wine Festival in the fall. Go ahead and order that escargot – you’re a grown-up and you deserve it!

7. Ride the big rides!

Some attractions with height requirements include Avatar Flight of Passage, Dinosaur, Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Mission Space, Test Track, Big Thunder Mountain, Rock N’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror. You have eaten your veggies and grown tall – time to reap the rewards! While you’re at it – linger over the exhibits and stay for the film inside Walt Disney Presents. Or, why not take two spins around the Carousel of Progress!

6. Go to the Spa!

Get a therapeutic massage at a Disney World Spa. Favorites include Senses Spa at Saratoga Springs, Mandara Spa at the Dolphin, and Zahanati Massage and Fitness Center at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Head over to Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort for total indulgence and pampering.

5. Enjoy the theme parks at night

There’s no pesky bed time or curfew for you! As fantastic as the Disney Parks are during the day, they take on a whole new magic and beauty after the sun goes down. Catch Animal Kingdom under the stars – you will never forget the look and feel of your surroundings that night. Spaceship Earth has a wondrous glow, and nighttime is the only time you will see Tinker Bell fly from Cinderella Castle inside Magic Kingdom! Go ahead, sleep in! The parks and Disney Springs can still offer you loads of activities late into the evening. Just be sure to check your Times Guides before heading out!

4. Rent a golf cart

Driving a golf cart around is fun in itself. But wait until you drive one at Walt Disney World. For under $100 – Disney’s Fort Wilderness offers them for use within the Resort and Campground. The fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down, either. Your golf cart will come complete with a windshield and headlights for night driving.

3. Stop by a Disney Lounge Even if you Don’t Drink

Travel back in time at the Shark Bar inside T-Rex Café, and watch the 45-foot animatronic octopus! He might scare kids a little, but you won’t have to worry about that, will you? The Swan Resort at Disney is home to Kimonos – the only karaoke spot on property. They also have one of the best sushi bars at Walt Disney World. Speaking of food – you will find a surprising selection of it at Disney Lounges. We are talking cheese plates, burgers, donuts, pasta, and even fondue! Check the menus online before you go and then escape the hoopla to have a grown-up conversation at a Disney Lounge.

2. Have a cocktail – or two!

The options are limitless, but here’s a few recommendations. Epcot has endless choices in the World Showcase. Animal Kingdom has the incredible Pongu Pongu and/or Dawa Bar. Hollywood Studios has some amazing signature choices at various restaurants. Don’t have a park ticket? Visit the Tambu Lounge in the Polynesian or Minzer’s Lounge in the Grand Floridian!

1. Don’t forget the child within you!

This is the most important thing for adults to do at Disney World! Hug a fluffy Disney character and get your picture taken. Wear your mouse ears, fly with Dumbo, get your face painted like a pirate, meet a Princess and eat a Mickey Ice Cream Bar for breakfast! Be silly, smile, and laugh. Walt Disney is the perfect place to let your hair down as an adult – and have a magical time!
