What To Do At Disney World On Really Crowded Days

7.  Magic Kingdom/Tomorrowland/Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover

"Ahh" is the feeling you get when you travel by this replica mass transportation system.  Step onto a conveyor belt which carries you up to the loading platform, where you step onto another conveyor belt which is moving at the same speed as the ride vehicle and sit yourself down for a carefree, relaxing ride around Tomorrowland.  From the moment your tram car leaves the station, you are on a journey around Tomorrowland with a bird's eye view of rides, attractions, and people scurrying from here to there, while you are swiftly making your way through the rides, attractions, and shops.  Your vehicle slows down when traveling through the rides and attractions, so you get a glimpse of what you have already experienced or will experience in the near future.

8. "Shop Till You Drop"

There are plenty specialty shops in every theme park, and when the rides and attractions are the busiest it's the best time to go shopping.  Since the lines are long, and it's hot outside, what better way to spend a few hours than being in a cool shop where you can get all those gifts and souvenirs for those special friends and relatives back home.  If you're staying at a Disney Hotel, you can have your packages sent back to your Resort to be picked up later.  If you're not staying at a Disney Resort, your packages can be sent to a designated location near the front entrance for convenient pick-up as you exit the park.  In both cases, let the retail clerk know that you want to use this service at the time of your purchase.

9.  Miniature Golf Courses

Plan a midday or early evening excursion to one of two Disney themed miniature golf courses:  "Fantasia Gardens" is located just across from the Swan and Dolphin Resorts and has two 18-hole courses themed after the movie, "Fantasia".  "Disney's Winter Summerland" is located next door to "Blizzard Beach" Water Park and also contains two 18-hole courses; one is summer themed and the other is winter themed.  There is no direct transportation from any of the four theme parks to either golf courses, but Taxi, Uber, or Lyft Minnie Van services are available at Walt Disney World.

10. Disney's Boardwalk

Get a break from the crowds by catching a bus or Minnie Van to The Boardwalk!  Fantastic restaurants, a dance hall, dueling piano bar and nightly boardwalk entertainment is sure to please everyone in your family.  You can also rent a surrey bike and ride around the Epcot area resort loop.

11.  Visit Disney Waterparks

Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are a fantastic way to beat the heat and the crowds at Disney World!  Tickets for these parks are less expensive than the other 4 theme parks, but don't let the smaller price tag fool you.  There's so much to enjoy at both watery destinations.  Both water parks boast huge wave pools, slides, lazy rivers and a host of other attractions your family will love.  You could also visit during Typhoon Lagoon's H2O Glow Nights hosted by your favorite Toy story Pals.  Stay cool in the Florida sun and visit the less crowded waterparks.  They don't disappoint!
