Who says Disney World is only for kids? It’s definitely not. There are plenty of things that are actually geared more towards adults. I personally really enjoy taking adult only trips. Going with the whole family and going with adults only are like two completely different trips. You get to experience things that you may not get to experience with kids in tow. Here are a few tips that will help you make the most out of your trip!
6. Arrival Day
Arrival Day is always a topic of debate whether you are traveling with family or with adults only. Some may want to jump right into things and hit the parks as soon as you arrive. Some may want to take it easy before all your adventures begin. The way I look at it is that since it’s only adults, this vacation is most likely going to be a mix of rest, relaxation, and fun. So you may want to use this day to check-in, unpack, and get something to eat. Then let all the fun and adventure begin the next morning.
5. Focus On Food
When traveling with children, especially young children, you probably pick restaurants that are more appealing to them. So use this adults only opportunity to try some things the kids wouldn’t necessary enjoy as much. Whether it’s an expensive steakhouse like, Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, or a meal inspired by African cuisine at Jiko inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, there are so many unique dining experiences to try throughout all of Disney World. And what better time to try them all than during an adults only trip?
4. Resort Hopping
One of my favorite things to do outside of the parks is resort hopping. I like to ride the monorail from resort to resort and check out each of the resorts on the monorail loop. This is especially fun during the holidays when they are decorated in holiday décor. You may also find a restaurant you want to dine at in the future, or find a bar to stop in and have a couple drinks. There are plenty of fun things to do and see throughout each resort. You may even like one so much, you book it for your next trip!
3. Drinking Around the World
Epcot is a great park for adults. With amazing food and drink options, this park usually appeals more towards adults than children. One activity that has become very popular over the years is “drinking around the world.” This is basically when you get a different alcoholic beverage from each country in Epcot. There are so many different options to try, margaritas in Mexico, beer in Germany, the list goes on and on!
2. Have A Day With No Plans
Every vacation needs a little planning, but sometimes you need to have at least one day where you have nothing planned. This doesn’t mean you don’t have to do anything all day, just count it as a spontaneous day. Go shopping in Downtown Disney, walk your resort, visit other resorts, there’s plenty of things you can do that don’t need planning. You may even find something new and exciting to do!
1. Take Time To Enjoy Your Resort
When you’re running from park to park or trying to keep the kids entertained, you can really take your resort for granted. Disney put so much effort and detail into each resort and its grounds. Take time to walk around your resort. Look at the buildings, the architecture, the landscaping. You’ll really fall in love with the charm and character each resort has to offer. Even try the dining options at your resort; some of them are actually quite good!
So start your planning with these itinerary tips, and I guarantee you will have a fantastic adults only trip!
