Obviously the main draw of a Walt Disney World vacation is the Four Theme Parks – and with good reason – Disney puts a ton of energy, effort, ideas, and money into making sure the rides, shows, and experiences (down to the sidewalks and garbage cans!) are the most magical things you’ve ever seen. There is so much to see and do at the Parks that it’s easy to forget that the 4 Theme Parks aren’t all that Disney World has to offer – in fact, they have TONS to do outside the Parks, especially for adults.
I recently wrote about Disney for Adults and top Disney Adult Dining Spots – and after writing those I was thinking about how much there is for adults to do outside the Theme Parks, and I realized I needed to pay homage to at least a few of these amazing Adult Extracurricular Activities.
Water Fun: (pictured above) Not only do all the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have (amazing!) pools some properties also offer guests the chance to experience awesome water sports: boat rentals – from canoes and paddle boats to speed boats and pontoon boats are all available for guests to take out for a spin, as well as the chance to go on an instructor-led fishing excursion! You can even learn to surf (no ocean required!). Or if you want to take it easy and float around all day in an inner tube, Disney World’s got you covered there, too!
Sports Fans: So – maybe sports on land (vs in the water) are more your speed, fear not as Disney World has plenty of sports-related activities available to enjoy! ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is right on Disney property – home to state of the art facilities – where you can watch as professional teams and athletes train and compete live! If you’re part of a team you can even look into practicing or playing there. If you’re looking to catch the game, the ESPN Club is the perfect place to do it – TV’s everywhere (even in the bathrooms!) and a full bar and menu available for your enjoyment. Disney World is also home to 4 beautiful Golf Courses – what better place to relax and engage in a little friendly competition among family?
Raising That Heart Rate: I know when I personally am looking to book a hotel, one of the things I look for is whether or not the hotel has a gym or workout facility of some kind. So if you’re like me and prefer to work out while away, you’re in luck as many of the Walt Disney World Resorts are home to World Class Fitness Centers, and most of them also offer extensive running/walking trails as well as Bike rental locations throughout Disney World

All About The Amenities: Staying On Property at Walt Disney World is a truly awesome experience. They have a ton of Resort Hotels to choose from – and they are all great and offer the same consistently awesome service to their guests. However, as an Adult traveling to Walt Disney World, you might find that a wide array of amenities is something that’s important to you. Disney’s Deluxe Resorts offer a TON of awesome perks: Room Service, Valet Parking, Business Centers and Meeting Facilities, Childcare Services, Laundry and Dry Cleaning Services, Mail Services, Merchandise Delivery/Pickup, Concierge Services for assistance making reservations/purchasing tickets and more, and then there’s the Disney Signature Services – available to Club level or Suite guests – which offers more planning assistance to help tailor your vacation to your unique needs. Of course – all of these amenities cost money – but – hey, you’re an adult, you work hard, you deserve to indulge, right?
Vacations are all about relaxing and having fun, right? And at Walt Disney World they encourage you to play hard (forget the working part!) – and enjoy everything they have to offer, which for adult guests is a LOT!
