Disney For Adults – FAQ


When people find out how much of a Disney lover I am, and how often I vacation at Walt Disney World, I am often met with skepticism, disbelief, and QUESTIONS – I am always prepared for all three, and it led me to realize that many people probably have the same inquiries, so here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Disney World for adults:

“Isn’t Walt Disney World Just For Kids?” – HECK NO! That’s really the reason behind me starting this blog, is to help adults realize that WDW has a lot to offer for those of ALL ages, and that everyone will have fun here, not just kids

“Isn’t A Walt Disney World vacation expensive?” – It can be, but if you make smart choices like staying in a Disney Value Resort, sharing meals (as Disney portions can be HUGE!), keeping your souvenir budget in check, and going at “off” times when the prices are lower, you can save money and make it more of a value

“What is there for adults to do at Walt Disney World?” – A LOT! From spas, to golf courses, to 5 star meals, to boat rentals, to watersports, to behind the scenes tours, to special events, to shopping, swimming….let’s just say this – you will never be bored at WDW

“Where can I stay at Walt Disney World?” – They have a ton of amazing Resorts – ranging in price and ameneties, you can stay in anything from a basic room to a campground cabin to an RV to a 3 bedroom suite. Disney does a great job with theming on these resorts too, so if you’re really into New Orleans, or the Caribbean, or Disney Animation – there are Resorts themed to all of those and more!

“What’s the food like at Walt Disney World?” – Theme Park food gets a bad rap, and for a good reason – it’s mostly overpriced, bad tasting, and bad for you. Well, rest assured that WDW food is absolutely NOTHING like your typical Theme Park cuisine – they do it all here: sushi, steak, salads, buffets, dishes from around the World, and much more. It’s one of my favorite parts of Disney – is trying new and different restaurants and food

“Why should I go to Walt Disney World?” – Why NOT? It is a magical place, with something for everyone – rides, food, shows, attractions, animals, characters, parades, live music, drinks, dancing, laughter – need I say more?

Try Something Different At WDW

Boat Rental

Walt Disney World is known for its Theme Parks and rides, and they are some of the best in the world, as Disney really strives to create an immersive guest experience, and they 100% succeed at that (in my humble opinion!)

But, Theme Parks and rides aren’t for everyone, and for those who are headed to WDW and are looking for something unique and different to occupy your time, here are some things you can try:

-Rent a Boat – WDW offers motorboats, jetskis, and canoes/paddle boats for rental, and it’s a great way to get to see more of Disney

-Fishing – You can book fishing excursions where you go out with a guide and spend a morning catching some large and small mouth bass (you don’t get to keep what you catch, unfortunately, but its still a fun time!)

-Bike Rides – Bike rentals are available at several resorts, and there are lots of trails to explore all around the resorts

-Horseback Riding – at Disney’s Fort Wilderness you can take lessons and go riding through their long nature trails (it’s so peaceful there you may even forget you’re at Disney World!)

-Spa Treatments – WDW offers 2 world class spas where you can relax in a serene setting while you get a massage, facial, and manicure

-Golf – there are several amazing golf courses at Disney, and you can event take lessons from their pros

-Shopping – Stores are everywhere at WDW, for those hardcore shoppers I recommend you head over to Downtown Disney, where you will find everything for sale from toys to Harleys!

-Swimming – All WDW Resorts have pools, and there are also water parks that are the perfect place to cool off on a hot day

-Try Some New Cuisine – WDW is known for it’s amazing food, and there are plenty of restaurants options out there that offer all kinds of food, so it’s a great place to be advanturous and try something new (like African or Moroccan food!)

Disney offers all this and much, much more – check out their website to find out what they have in store for you!

Top 5 Adult Hideaways At WDW


Enjoying a relaxing boat ride at WDW!

Enjoying a relaxing boat ride at WDW!

Walt Disney World is typically known as a ‘family’ vacation spot, for families with kids to come and enjoy the rides, characters, and atmosphere. And while this is true, I believe that adults can have an amazing time at WDW too, and that is the main purpose of this blog, is to help people understand and appreciate WDW as an adult vacation spot, as there are plenty of places to go and things to do for those of us without curfews or naptimes!


Here are my top five picks for “Adult Hideaways” at Walt Disney World:


1. Victoria Falls Lounge – This bar is located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort, and it’s upstairs from the popular restaurant Boma (one of my personal favorites!), so while you sip a drink you can look down on the restaurant or outside at the savannah. They offer some unique and delicious adult beverages, and as an added bonus, the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a destination in and of itself! It’s an inredibly beautiful resort- there’s the safari area where you can observe the animals plus learn more about them from the animal experts, the gift shop here offers unique gifts not available at other Resorts, and the dark wood interior of the lobby and lounge is relaxing, elegant, and sophisticated all at the same time


2. Port Orleans Riverside Resort – this ia great, quiet, laid back resort where you can take a romantic stroll or even a horse drawn carriage ride along the Sassagoula River. And if all that walking makes you thirsty, then I highly recommend you stop in to the River Roost Lounge, a full service bar that also serves appetizers and is open until midnight. The big screen tv’s are always tuned to football and other sporting events, but the best entertainment here is definitely Yee-Haw Bob, who performs several nights a week, singing, dancing, and most of all making people laugh. Bob makes a trip to POR worth it, even if you aren’t staying there


3. Downtown Disney – By day, this thriving marketplace caters to those of all ages. But at night, it comes alive with music, drinks, eats, and entertainment for us adults! Check out live music at the House of Blues, bowl a few games over at the new Splittsville Bowling Alley, catch a late movie at the AMC Movie Theater, or fly high above the World with the Characters In Flight hot air balloon experience


4. Illumnations Cruises – You can hire a boat for a nightime private fireworks viewing, and you can even have it catered! This would be a great option to help celebrate just about any special occasion, from birthdays to anniversaries and more. Pricey, but worth it!


5. Boat Rentals – If you don’t want to pay for the private cruise or want to try your hand at being ‘captain’, then I highly recommend renting a boat at WDW, it’s a great way to relax and take in the sights from a totally different point of view. Plus, it’s just you and your boat out there – so it’s quiet and on a sunny day there is nothing better! There are different types of boats available for rental, like jet skis, pedal boats, pontoon boats, and more! Click Here for more information


There are many other places where adults can relax and enjoy some down time, these are just my personal favorites and ones that I have found to be fun for myself and the other adults in my party.


I would love to know what YOUR favorite adult spot is at WDW – a bar, restaurant, pool? Where do you go to unwind and relax at WDW?
