Isn't a Disney vacation just for kids?
The Tiki Travel Planner is here to tell you no way!! :-) Sure, Disney Destinations are a magical place for families with children to spend time together, but it is for adults, too! Let me show you the ways!
- Romance and Fun - Not only do many couples become engaged at Disney Destinations, but some marry there. You don't have to do that extreme to have some fun, though. If you want romantic accommodations, choose a beautifully themed Deluxe resorts, such as Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney's Polynesian Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort or Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort to slumber and spend time away from the parks. These beautifully themed resorts have lovely rooms, public areas, restaurants and pools. Some have horse-drawn carriages or Surrey bikes to ride! Moderate Resorts and Value Resorts offer their fair share of fun for an adult trip, too!
- Foodies unite! Disney Destinations, whether it be at the parks, at the resorts or on one of the Disney Cruise ships, they are full of incredible dining choices! Would you like to dine at Victoria and Albert's which has received the AAA Five Diamond Award since 2000 and was recently named "Tripadvisors #2 Restaurant in the Country"? Well, it is located at the Walt Disney World Resort!
- The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida has so many fun places to enjoy an alcoholic beverage. World Showcase in Epcot unofficially hosts "Drinking around the World", giving you the opportunity to try various drinks from the countries in World Showcase. Of course, I wouldn't advise you to "do it all", but pace yourself and having one or share one here and there is fun! Our favorite bar in Epcot is La Cava del Tequila in Mexico. Epcot also has Festivals throughout the year, such as Food and Wine in the Fall and Flower and Garden in the Spring! Specialty food booths which include some alcohol concoctions make for a nice stroll around the park! All of the resorts have drink locations, from Value Resorts like Disney's Pop Century with the pool bar Petals, to more refined lounges at the Deluxe Resorts. The piece de resistance is "Trader Sam's Grotto Bar" at Disney's Polynesian Resort. You have to experience it to believe it; Disney theming at its best! On the Disney Cruise Lines, there are specialty bars and Mixology classes to attend. Lots of fun!
- Pools/ Castaway Cay: The Resorts each have a feature pool, with more "bells and whistles", but will have additional pools that are a bit less quite. Most kids want to hang out at the feature pools! Disney Cruise Line's private island, Castaway Cay, has an entire beach for adults only! There is also a restaurant and bar dedicated to adults.
