Top 5 Recreational Activities at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World is a vacation destination known for entertainment and magic. But what about those of us who seek adventure on our vacations? I have good news: this list is for you. Here are my top five favorite recreational activities to do at the “happiest place on earth.”

5. Roast marshmallows and have a movie night

These relatively new additions to each Walt Disney World resorts are free ways to further enjoy the magic of Disney. Scattered around the on-property resorts you will find fire pits, which are usually located in close proximity to the main pool at each resort. These fire pits are lit nightly and are stocked enough marshmallows for you and your family to enjoy to your heart’s desire. Also nearby, you will find projection screens. There, Cast Members play selected Walt Disney movies each night. These two recreational activities make for a romantic, low-budget Disney date that doesn’t even require a park ticket.

4. Join a pool party

Each day, Cast Members lead games and trivia in the main pool area of each resort. Cast Members lead games, trivia, and contests for kids. While most activities are steered toward the kids, these huge pool parties are a hit for both kids and adults alike! The fun music is enjoyable to listen to, and the games keep the children entertained while the adults take a little time to relax by the poolside.

3. Take a boat ride

Whether you take a boat to the park from your hotel or you rent a boat yourself, this activity is sure to be a hit! For those guests who enjoy spending as much time outdoors and on the water as possible, I recommend taking this type of transportation. Guests can also rent boats at most of the deluxe and some of the moderate resorts for a fee. Check out for more information regarding specific resorts and what recreational activities they offer.

2. Trade your hotel room for a campsite

At Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, your family can rough it rather than staying in a conventional hotel room during your vacation. Camping options range from sleeping in a tent to a full hookup site for an RV. Compared to a resort room, these camping options are quite cheap, so keep them in mind. Sleeping in the great outdoors will also add more adventure to your Disney vacation!

1. Go all out on the water

For the ultimate thrill, why not go tubing or waterskiing on Bay Lake? At Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre, you can do all this and more; Rent a wakeboard, speed boat, or even go parasailing to see an aerial view of the magic kingdom. You can find more options and specific pricing information at
