Going on a trip to Disney World as grown-up adults without any kids around might sound disheartening. The idea of only seeing Mickey Mouse, Eating Mickey-shape treats all day and riding Space Mountain can be daunting. However, there is more to Disney World than the usual kid’s attraction. Disney has always marketed itself as the family-friendly resort destination, but recently their efforts have now branched out to target traveling adults without children. The good news is, it is not just marketing spin, and Disney World has plenty of adult activities that grown-ups can maximize.
While Disney World is still the most magical place for kids, the park now is also a legitimate worthy destination for adults at any time of the year. Here is a quick guide for adults to enjoy Disney World.
TRY THE EPCOT CHALLENGE AROUND THE WORLD:
The challenge here is simple, have a meal in each country and try to make it around the world. This is the best way to try other dishes from different cultures. Similar to the Drinking Around the World, this features 11 countries that makeup Epcot’s World Showcase, only that it serves dishes instead of drinks.
Most popular food includes topmost and guacamole in Mexico, pork and vegetable egg rolls from Joy of Tea in China, school bread in Norway, Napoletana pizza from Italy, fish and chips from the UK and honey chocolate baklava from Morocco.
HAVE A JUNGLE CRUISE:
This is an all-time favorite among guests because it can be quite cheesy at times. You can’t leave Disney World without giving this park a visit and making time for a Jungle Cruise. It features a ten-minute trek through the Amazon, the African Congo, Mekong River, and Nile River. It also comes with complete puns and bad jokes which makes the cruise more interesting. While this tour is for all ages, the jokes are better appreciated and enjoy as an adult.
HAVE FUN IN MONORAIL BAR CRAWL:
Similar to the Drinking Around the World challenge, this is best done in a large group setting for the simple reason that drinking alone is boring. You can start the fun with The Polynesian, The Contemporary, and Grand Floridian. There are plenty of bars to choose from and most bars serve food. This is one of the best alternatives to have a great dinner if the weather is not cooperating in one of the nights of your stay.
EXPERIENCE THE FIREWORKS CRUISE:
What better way to enjoy Disney World than to have a romantic firework cruise on a private boat from Magic Kingdom resorts. The cruise will go out into Seven Seas Lagoon and experience Happily Ever After that will conclude in a great spot that very few people ever get to experience.
Disney World offers a variety of activities that adults can enjoy, feel free to explore other option that is suited to your kind of trip. Improve your overall experience by checking this guide, The Disney Packing List That Saved My Orlando Vacation.
