8 Tips For A Relaxing Day At Walt Disney World

By: Alexandra Blazevich

Walt Disney World vacations are meant to be just that: vacations! But they don’t necessarily always have the characteristics of a relaxing vacation getaway. Most of them tend to be hectic, rushed, and not the vacation you want it to be. Here are some of my methods of keeping the fun, magic, and relaxation in a Walt Disney World vacation!

1) Go to the pool:

One of the most relaxing things to do for free at Walt Disney World is to go to the pool. Most resorts have both a quiet pool as well as an activity pool for kids, so you can count on there being some place to unwind. Quiet pools are not adults-only, but they do tend to be more peaceful than the upbeat, kid-filled activity pool.

2) Do something new:

The Orlando area is full of entertainment, food, and fun, and Walt Disney World is home to tons of it. Another way to relax on vacation is to try something new! Take a stroll around your resort or venture outside the Walt Disney world gates. There’s always something new to do in Orlando, so why not go out and try it? You may surprise yourself and even start a new tradition!

3) Stroll around Downtown Disney:

Downtown Disney is an extremely popular part of Walt Disney World, especially because it’s free to get in! One way to spend a chill day in Walt Disney World is visiting Downtown Disney during the day, or even in the morning. The crowd level is much lesser the earlier you go, and the general crowd includes families rather than couples at night. Strolling around the Downtown Disney West Side and Marketplace is a relaxing way to spend your time on vacation, that won’t break the bank!

4) Get some beauty sleep:

I think we can all agree that Disney resort beds are magically more comfortable than regular beds. There’s no better feeling than sleeping in after a late night at the parks or Downtown Disney. So why not do it? Each Disney day will be more enjoyable with sufficient sleep, so getting in that 8 hours, (or more), is totally worth it!

5) Sit and people watch:

One of my favorite relaxing activities is people watching. What a better place to do that than Walt Disney World? So grab a drink, churro, or Mickey ice cream, sit on a park bench, and watch away! It’s a chill way to take a mid-day break and have a snack.

6) Have a spa day:

The ultimate calming day can be had at one of the spas on the Walt Disney Resort property. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa are both full service spas on property, but most moderate-deluxe resorts have spa services. Whether you go for a pedicure, massage, or full spa day, you’ll definitely come out feeling refreshed!

7) Take a boat ride:

You’ll love having the wind blowing through your hair as you enjoy a peaceful tour around the Walt Disney World property.

8) Go golfing:

For all of my sports fanatics out there, I know just what will make a perfect relaxing day on Walt Disney property. Walt Disney World Resort is home to multiple golf courses, including Disney’s Lake Buena Vista course, Disney’s Palm Golf Course, and Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course. At these three PGA Tour locations guests can reserve tee times for golf play or receive lessons for a relaxing day on the course!
