#Adulting In Disney

I spent the last weekend in Walt Disney World getting caught up on all the wonderful new things and the “limited time Magic” offerings. WOW was I busy but I learned so much. Since 2009, I have been to Walt Disney World once without children. That visit was brief and dictated by my lovely sister whose bachelorette party we were there for. This was the first time in ten years that I have been to Disney and was able to see and do “Adult” things. It was fantastic and I cannot wait to do it again in June.

Blinded by my children’s joy and all the things they want to see and do, I had forgotten how much was offered for crowds 21+. I want to share what I had experienced and learned so that those of you looking for a couples retreat, girls weekend, or fantastic group of friends getaway can see what a great option Disney Word would be.

I touched down in Orlando right around 8am and headed for the Magical Express. They grabbed my luggage for me, put me on the correct bus and I was off to my hotel – Port Orleans French Quarter. There are not many hotels that I do not like but for #Adulting purposes, I suggest staying in a Moderate or higher. The reason being the night time entertainment that Moderates and Deluxes offer. If you choose to do a day at the pool/hotel, you have a great choice of entertainment right there between the movies and live entertainment they offer in the evenings.

#Adulting at Resorts

Monorail Resorts

I love the resorts on the monorail. They are incredibly convenient, have a tremendous amount of amenities, and they have many #Adulting opportunities. This weekend, I participated in the Highway in the Sky Dine Around. It is a 5 course experience of bites and beverages. All of the stops are at the monorail resorts:

  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  • Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

It does culminate with the perfect viewing spot for Happily Ever After Fireworks. I was with a group of friends for this and we had a blast. I could also see how it could be incredibly romantic.

In addition to this experience, the monorail resorts have several bars and lounges that have live entertainment, great food & beverages, and each has at least one table service restaurant.

Boardwalk Resorts

The Boardwalk Resorts are also in a great area that have so many #Adulting opportunities. They are within walking distance to Epcot (they also offer the Friendship boats) so during all of the Epcot Festivals, they are a great option. You can also find great eateries and entertainment on the boardwalk including the Dance Hall and Jellyrolls Piano Bar. The resorts located at the Boardwalk are:

  • Disney’s Boardwalk Inn & Villas
  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort
  • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort & Villas

In addition to the Boardwalk entertainment, each specific resort has several options for entertainment including live music, lounges, bars, and golf courses.

Both the Boardwalk Resorts and the Monorail Resorts are on bodies of water. This is a fantastic advantage because of all of the marinas. Guests can charter private bass fishing outings, arrange dinner for a couple or a group out on one of the pontoons and sail during fireworks. You can even just arrange for a dessert and bring your own beverages on board. So many fun and romantic possibilities! Fort Wilderness also has boat rentals.

Other Resort #Adulting Opportunities

In addition to the Boardwalk & Monorail Resorts, several other resorts have great options for adults:

  • Stay “Club Level” for wonderful perks and service
  • Signature Dining Experiences (Jiko has the largest selection of South African wine in North America)
  • Chef’s Table
  • Spas
  • Bars & Lounges
  • Rent a Surrey Bike
  • The Beignet Dash (5k)
  • Shopping
  • Live Music
  • Movies under the Stars
  • Fire pits
  • Archery
  • Horseback Riding
  • Wagon Rides
  • Horse Stable Tours
  • Adult Pools (at select hotels)
  • Cabana Rentals
  • Canoes & Kayaks
  • Golf Courses & Mini Golf (Clubs for rent)
  • Espn

If you are looking for a specific resort offering from the above list, let me know and I can help you find which Resort has it. The Disney Resorts have the perfect ingredients to make an amazing Adults Only Trip. Put a few of these options together for a group of friends or a romantic getaway and you will have the vacation of a lifetime! I am happy to help turn your Dreams into Memories!!

Next in the #Adulting Series will be #Adulting in Disney Parks

Disney Puts New Rules Into Place

© Disney

With all of the big changes coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland over the next few years, Disney felt the need to restrict a few things. These changes are for the safety and concern of their guests. These new policies & changes will go into effect May 1st.

Strollers

They are restricting the size of stroller permitted into the parks. If you are traveling with a stroller, the new maximum dimensions are 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long or smaller. This is a GOOD thing. The smaller stroller you have, the easier it is for you to navigate through crowds. If everyone complies, foot traffic will move much smoother.

Wagons

Disney will no longer permit wagons. The wagon style strollers such as the ones made by “Keenz” will not be permitted either, even though you can “push” them like a stroller.

Smoking

Every time I read that, I hear it in Mrs. Doubtfire’s voice. No? Just me? Ok, anyway, there will no longer be smoking sections inside Disney Parks. There will be a designated smoking area outside of the parks near the entrance instead. This will be in effect for all of Walt Disney World, Disney Water parks, Disney Springs, ESPN, Disneyland and Downtown Disney. For guests that are staying in a Resort Hotel or may venture to one for dining/entertainment, they will also each have a designated smoking area. This does include vaping as well.

Loose/Dry Ice

Disney happily let’s us all bring in coolers with our own drinks and food. What they will no longer allow are coolers full of “loose ice” or dry ice. They encourage the use of ice packs and if you require loose ice for any reason, it is available at no charge at their quick service restaurants.

Let me know if you would like clarification on any of these or if you have any questions!
