Disney’s Physical Distancing Experiences Beyond the Parks with DVC Discounts in Mind

Whether you’re a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Member or a Disney Resort Guest, Walt Disney World offers several experiences outside of the parks where physical distancing can be kept in mind! Check out the many offerings below as shared by DisneyParksBlog. DVC Member? Take note of the membership discounts mentioned as well!


As many of the vacation kingdom’s most laid-back experiences are ideally suited to physical distancing, more resort guests than ever are seeking magic off the beaten path. Here are just a few of the many experiences beyond the parks that may help inspire your next Walt Disney World vacation plans.

Horseback Riding: Just off the shores of Bay Lake lies Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, where Walt Disney World horses call “home” and where DVC Members enjoy a discount on scenic horseback rides through pristine Florida forests.

Surrey Bikes: From Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to Disney’s Old Key West Resort, several resorts around the neighborhood rent 2- and 4-person Surrey bikes for casual rides along scenic pathways, with DVC Members enjoying a discount.

Pool Cabanas: Balancing the Florida sun with personal shade, private pool cabanas at select Walt Disney World Resort pools pamper DVC Members (who receive a discount) and guests with a variety of creature comforts.  

Golf: DVC Member discounts offer a range of opportunities for Members to save while hitting the links, from mini golf to PGA-style golf to the increasingly popular “FootGolf,” a sport that combines the patient precision of golf with the athletic coordination of soccer.

Boat Rentals: Whether canoeing through Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground or motoring across the Seven Seas Lagoon, renting a boat is a great way to see the vacation kingdom from a different perspective. As many marinas have yet to resume their usual operations, be sure to inquire about offerings available during your vacation.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
