Parent’s Night Out
Consider taking time for an adult’s night out during your vacation. With kid’s clubs around the property and resort room childcare available through Disney Resorts parents can easily arrange childcare. Maybe it’s a trip to the spa to recharge or maybe it’s a fancy dinner at a table service restaurant. Consider taking some time away from the kids to reconnect, while they have fun with new friends and activity counselors.
Family Time Outside the Parks
Taking some time to hang out outside the parks can be a great way to catch up on family time on your vacation. Hang out with your kids in the resort pool, have a picnic at Disney Springs or grab the map in the My Disney Experience App and resort hop on Disney transportation to see new places on the property. Giving yourself time and permission to wander without a set itinerary is way to connect and enjoy Walt Disney World in a new way.
