We all need a vacation; whether it’s getting away from day-to-day life or the little stresses. As much as kids play a big part in our lives, sometimes we just need a little time to ourselves. But just because you’re leaving the little ones behind, doesn’t mean you have to abandon your Disney plans. There are plenty of things to do at Disney World for adults that will keep you coming back year after year!
If you’re trying to plan a special vacation for only you and a loved one or you’re really trying to avoid children altogether, you can still easily plan a trip to Disney World to accommodate your wishes. We’ve drafted up a 7-day itinerary full of things to do at Disney World for adults that will fill your schedule up with adult entertainment (and maybe a little romance) at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Whether you fly or drive here, you might be a little too burnt out to hit the theme parks right away. But hey, you’ve got to grab a bite to eat right?
Head on over to EPCOT, the world culture hub of America, and do a tour of the many countries they have available. Join EPCOT’s world showcase and and enjoy a drink in 11 different countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, the United States, Italy, Germany, China, Norway, and Mexico!
If you’re thinking about keeping your first night low key, enjoy a dining experience at any of the fine restaurants around the area. California Grille, Le Cellier, and Narcoossee’s are great places to start. If you’re planning a trip to Disney this fall, consider grabbing tickets to the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival from August 31st to November 13th!
Most families (including the kids) are back at their resorts by supper time. This allows you the opportunity to take advantage of Disney After Hours. All the parks offer extra hours for adults to avoid the chaos of families clogging up the lines. Everything is better under the magic of the night time sky, whether it’s the Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom, the spooky Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or the Tree of Life Awakenings at the Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
By now you’ve dined around the world and given into your childhood pleasures. Now’s the time to get back to physical activity. Orlando has some amazing hiking trails and parks in the city that allow for some great Sunshine State exploration. Adventure to Split Oak Forest, Bear Creek Nature Trail, or Big Tree Park and admire the ancient live oaks, luscious gardens, and gorgeous lakes.
After hiking, biking, or walking around all day, treat yourself to a restful nap back at the comfort of your timeshare suite, and then a wonderful dinner at one of the famed restaurants along Disney’s Boardwalk. Stop at the popular piano bar, Jellyrolls for some late night entertainment. Then cap off the night with a bottle of wine and fireworks. Quick tip: not many things are more romantic than watching the illuminations from EPCOT.
Without any kids running around to heighten your stress levels, why not optimize your relaxation with an intensive spa treatment? Orlando is well known for many of its award-winning spas; in fact many of the available Orlando timeshares we have in our inventory offer unbeatable spa services.
The Disney Cruises are some of the most popular adult attractions and keep mature travelers coming back year after year. The cruises offer Disney themes with quality customer service, while allowing travelers a break from the crowds and foot traffic at the parks. Adults-only restaurants, pools, and activities are offered, and the cruises travel to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private, adults-only beach! Be sure that you dress up like adults though; the cruises do require at least semi-formal attire.
Take advantage of this opportunity without the little rugrats to go see a show or attend an event that they might have trouble sitting through. EPCOT hosts the wonderful Flower and Garden Festival in the spring, or you can walk around the amazing parks any time of the year! Don’t miss any of these incredible shows they host down at Downtown Disney either, such as Cirque du Soleil at the Permanent Theater or catch a concert at the House of Blues!
Though you probably won’t have kids with you for these trips, what good is a trip to Disney World without stimulating a little nostalgia? Bring out the inner kid in you with a character breakfast and hang with all of the awesome characters you grew up with! After that, consider taking the Characters in Flight tethered balloon ride in Downtown Disney. If you schedule your trip for the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to finish your vacation on a high note with a beautiful view of Downtown Disney at night.
Your adult’s guide to Disney is almost complete. Now you need to find a place to stay! We have an abundance of Orlando timeshare resales and rentals waiting for you in our inventory! With plenty of things to do at Disney World for adults, you’ll be coming back to the Happiest Place on Earth year after year and saving thousands of dollars in the process!
