Do you love all things Disney? I’m sure you do. Would you go to Disney World every month if you were able? If you’re like me, then you would answer yes to that question also. That may be overwhelming if you have kids, though. There are the travel arrangements for the whole family. Then you have to think about all the things you need to pack for the kids. The stroller, snacks, wet wipes, etc. What if I told you that it is okay to take a trip to Disney World without the kids? What would you do if the kids weren’t with you? Disney World without kids can be just as much fun! Here are a few things we like to do!
Disney World Without Kids
I know what you’re thinking. This type of vacation is primarily for kids. Silly adults, Disney World isn’t just for kids! There are plenty of things for you to enjoy on an adults only vacation to this magical place! So, if you have the opportunity to take a Disney World vacation without the kids, then there are some things you should definitely try out while you’re visiting. Here are four of our favorites while doing Disney World without kids!
Life can be crazy and stressful most of the time. When we think of relaxing and having a peaceful day, sometimes, a Disney World vacation isn’t normally what comes to mind. It is possible to find a relaxing place in the midst of the crowds of people that flock to the most magical place on earth. If you’re looking for relaxation, then why not try a relaxing spa day? There are several spas to choose from throughout the Disney World Resorts. Check out the Senses Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa or Ship Shape at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Take in a relaxing massage and finish it up with a Tropical Immersion Facial. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful time and leave the worries of the real world behind you for awhile. Then spend the rest of the day soaking up the sun while relaxing by the pool as you prepare for dinner.
Now that you’ve had your nice relaxing day at the spa or pool (or both), it’s time to get ready for a nice romantic dinner with your significant other at one of the many special restaurants at Disney World. When you have kids, it’s not always easy getting time away to get dressed up and have an uninterrupted meal with adult conversations. This is a great way to reconnect with one another. Disney’s imagineers go all out in order to create a magical dining experience that you will not forget! Some great options to consider for a romantic dinner would be Narcoosee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge or California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. One added benefit of California Grill is that you can watch the fireworks display at Magic Kingdom while you eat if you time it right. If you aren’t eating that late, then bring your receipt to get access to the observation area when the fireworks start.
I had never heard of a dinner crawl until a few years ago when I was looking up ideas, so chances are, you may not know what it is either. So what is a dinner crawl? It’s simple, actually. You pick three different restaurants: one for an appetizer, one for the main course, and one for dessert. Make a plan of where you want to go and take off. You don’t have to visit each of the restaurants back to back. You can take your time with some fun in between. We tried this once before and it was great! I couldn’t think of a better place to try it than Disney World. A unique spin on this idea would be to do a dinner crawl across the world in Epcot.
Be A Kid
Okay, so all the things we’ve mentioned have been things to enjoy as adults. But let’s face it, at Disney World, everyone becomes a big kid. Just because you don’t have the kids with you doesn’t mean you can’t act like a one. Take in all the magic as if it were your first time. Get your picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle. Check out the shops on Main Street. Ride all of the rides (and I do mean all of them!). Eat the snacks. Cut loose and have a blast!
My Thoughts On Disney World Without Kids
You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a trip to Disney World. The things I mentioned are only the tip of the iceberg, too! The possibilities are endless. There’s nothing like taking a Disney vacation and seeing the joy in your children’s’ eyes as they take in all the magic. Sometimes, it’s great to get away without the kids to experience the magic yourself. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a little “me” time! So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to start planning!
