Why Disney World Is Good For Adults Too

Walt Disney World is more than kiddie rides in the Magic Kingdom and meet-and-greets with Mickey and friends. This Florida hot spot can offer the ultimate vacation destination perfect for adults looking to escape the stress of daily life.

Disney World, complete with four Disney theme parks and two water parks, occupies about 40 square miles of land and offers a variety of resorts to fit any adult’s budget, style and personality. From the sleek Contemporary Resort to the southern charm of Port Orleans to the elegance of the Grand Floridian, the Disney resorts are some of the finest accommodations to be found in the Florida.

Beyond the spectacular resort accommodations, there are five reasons Walt Disney World is just as good for adults as it is for children.

1. Escape from reality.

The daily humdrums can be well, humdrum. Often adults become so busy rushing from task to task, they forget to take a step back to enjoy the little pleasures in life. A Disney vacation can be a great adult escape from work woes, pressure and general tension. A leisurely stroll through the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail in the Animal Kingdom is a great way to reconnect with nature. For an adrenaline jolt, a ride on the intense Mission: SPACE in EPCOT can be the perfect choice for thrill-ride lovers.

2. Romantic getaway.

From moonlit walks along the white sand beaches of the Caribbean Resort to fine dining and the nightlife of Disney Springs, Walt Disney World can be the height of romance. Couples can take advantage of the many Disney date-like activities including sailing, exploring the pavilions at EPCOT’s World Showcase or indulging in a romantic dinner for two.

A great restaurant choice is The California Grill on the top floor of the Contemporary Resort where you can also watch the evening fireworks from the Magic Kingdom as you linger over dessert. Evening nightlife for couples may include IllumiNations at EPCOT or enjoy late-night fun at Disney Springs.

3. Many activities for active adults.

Disney World truly has something for everybody. For adults, there are many activities to choose from including golf, sailing, fishing, surfing lessons, and even camping for the outdoor-types. Each of the parks offers behind-the-scene tours. Some tours are about an hour, while others span a half day. Park tours as well as many of the other activities may not be included in your vacation package, so be sure to check when making your reservations. Some tours fill up quickly during peak seasons, so reserve your space as early as possible.

4. Foodie’s paradise.

With more than over 100 dining options throughout the Disney properties, Walt Disney World is truly a foodie’s paradise. From sushi to giant turkey legs to exquisite steaks grilled to perfection, the fine dining choices are seemingly endless. EPCOT’s World Showcase has international cuisine from 11 different countries including Morocco, Japan, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The Animal Kingdom has the amazing Tusker House with its mouthwatering African dishes and all-you-can-enjoy meats, salads and desserts. In Disney’s Hollywood Studios eat like the stars at Hollywood Brown Derby. Not to be overlooked are the many fine dining options in the resorts, most notably the elegant dining available at Victoria’s & Albert’s in the Grand Floridian.

5. Reconnect with your playful side.

It is almost impossible to not to feel like a bit of a kid when vacationing at Disney. Standing on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom while enjoying a Mickey Premium Ice Cream bar can make anyone feel young at heart. To awaken your inner-child, give Mickey a hug and pose for a picture. Ride the teacups at the Mad Tea Party, laugh with Flik and the bugs in Animal Kingdom’s It’s Tough to be a Bug or soar over the natural wonders of California in EPCOT’s thrilling ride, Soarin’.
