10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do At Walt Disney World


5. Enjoy A Resort... Even if you’re not staying there!

Did you know that anyone can make a reservation at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel’s restaurants, whether you are a resort guest or not? That means that you can get a feel for all of the different resorts, without having to book a stay there. My favorite resort to visit is Animal Kingdom Lodge. They have one of the best restaurants on Disney property, Sanaa. It is described as, “ An African restaurant with Indian flavors” and it offers an amazing array of unique dishes. You can also look at the animals while you wait for your meal! You can take the monorail to several of the deluxe resorts, including the Contemporary, The Grand Floridian, and the Polynesian. If you’ve always wanted to see what it’s like inside a deluxe resort, don’t hesitate to have a look around! It is important to note however, that if you are not staying at that resort you are not permitted to enter the pool area.

6. Learn Some Secrets Behind The Magic

The Disney Parks offer some incredible tours that allow guests ages 16 and older to learn about some of the amazing things located backstage (That is what Disney calls the areas that guests do not see at Walt Disney World.) This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who has visited the parks before and wants to know everything that they can about the most magical place on earth. The popular Keys To The Kingdom Tour even allows guests to visit the ever so elusive "Utilidors", located underneath the Magic Kingdom. If this tour is something you would like to do, make sure to book far in advance, as spots get filled very quickly.
