8 Ideas for a Father-Son Day at Walt Disney World

Disney World is amazing no matter who you visit with. Still, there is something extra magical about heading to these super cool parks as a father-and-son duo. After all, what could be better than bonding over the incredible experience offered by Walt Disney World Resort? If you’re thinking of taking your little man to Disney in the near future, you may be racking your brain trying to come up with a way to make the day extra special. Not to worry! We’ve collected a whole list of amazing ideas for you.

1. Take a Tour

Did you know that Disney World offers super cool behind-the-scenes tours? Well they do, and they are a ton of fun! For those animal lovers out there, the tours at Animal Kingdom are ideal. Plant fans, on the other hand, will adore the super affordable Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot. Other tours can be found at both other parks, and all are well worthwhile if you’ll be taking a slightly older child.

2. Get Your Sports On

Many people don’t realize that there are some great opportunities for sports fans to get in the game at Disney World. Consider staying in All-Star Sports resort for this particular trip, making sure to use the huge field in the middle of the resort to play catch, flag football, or even soccer. Visit ESPN Wide World of Sports and catch an event or simply have a look around the amazing facilities. For dinner, head to ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill located inside the complex for a well themed and delicious meal any sports fan would love. Basketball fan? Visit the NBA Experience at Disney Springs to shoot some hoops and play NBA inspired games.

3. All About Pirates

Those looking to celebrate all things pirate will find that Disney is just the place to do so. Begin by paying a visit to the Pirates League, where all guests are decked out in the finest pirate attire and dubbed official pirates. Catch the silly show featuring Captain Jack Sparrow located just outside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, and then hop on the ride itself. To finish things off right, be sure to schedule the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Dessert Voyage. This adventure features an exciting boat ride, delicious desserts, a fantastic view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks, and even a special guest!
