There’s nothing like watching the fireworks with your children. The gleam in their eyes is what spurs many of us to go back to Disney year after year. But is Disney only for children and their parents? Not a chance! Grown-ups can and DO have a fabulous time at Disney World. In some ways, going without the kids is more fun! Today’s Disney World tips for adults and grown-ups will outline the main ways to have fun without the children!
Tour the Park like a Teenager
See any people in the above picture? Main Street is practically empty! That’s what happens when you get there 45 minutes before rope drop. That can admittedly be tough to do with kids. But getting to the parks at 8-8:15 without kids? Piece of cake!
Without children, you can also quickly move from ride to ride. Our children, as we all know, are easily distracted. They also require bathroom breaks, constant food, they have strollers, and then there are the behavioral problems! When they aren’t there, you will be astounded at the number of things you can accomplish! Without the need to leave early for naps, you can easily tour any park in a day, and probably catch most of the fun rides 2-3 times!
Enjoy the Adult Festivities
Downtown Disney and Disney’s Boardwalk are both great places for adults. Alcoholic beverages, shopping, sports bars, adult restaurants, these are all a blast year-round. Recently we watched an NFL playoff game in January at the outdoor bar at Downtown Disney with fans all around us. 80 degrees while at home it was cold and rainy!
Epcot’s World Showcase is also another dynamite place for adults. With kids, you probably find that you move through the showcase quicker than you’d like. After all, it’s rather boring for many children. Without them around, we can take our time, sample beer, shop, and enjoy the culture and cuisine of each country.
Golfing and Shopping! Children are big fans of either. But adults are! Disney has some amazing golf courses, and of course women know about the endless shops in the Disney area, as well as the greater Orlando area.
Nothing says romance like great food, great music, beautiful sights, and things that take us back to our teenage/young adult years. Disney may not seem like the ideal place to go, but acting like a kid again with your spouse can reignite your love life. There are many hotels in the area that have romance packages. If you are planning to do this, ask your travel agent what packages they can find for you.
