10 Amazingly Beautiful and Almost Secret Spots Around Disney World

Animal Kingdom Lodge Patio

9. Animal Kingdom Lodge Covered Patio

Hidden layers and levels abound in the carnivorous layout of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Exploring this resort will reward you with the discovery of several “hidden” nooks available to lounge in, some even offering a wonderful view of the savannah and the grazing African safari animals. My “secret” spot is found at the back of the Main Lobby. On each side of the lobby are round, covered patios that provide rocking chairs and an overlook onto the Arusha Savanna. This shaded spot sees few guests, as most venture further outside to the designated animal-viewing platform. I’d put money on the notion that those rocking chairs see their fair share of comfortably cozy napping guests.

10. Saratoga Springs Resort Lakefront Sidewalk

There is a promenade found behind the Congress Park section of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort that takes you along the sun-glinting Village Lake which separates this resort from the lively Downtown Disney. Walking along this peacefully remote footpath and/or taking a seat on one of the many garden benches will afford you a spectacular full panoramic view of Downtown Disney. Capturing a glimpse of Downtown Disney from this side of the water is simply electrifying with the magnificently eye-catching shops, restaurants and attractions they offer. Here you can indulge in all the sights of Downtown Disney, without all the hustle and bustle.
