Walt Disney World has a reputation for being the ultimate Theme Park experience for kids and families – and it really is! But the truth is – it’s not just for kids – ADULTS can have a blast at WDW too! In fact, some of the best times I have had at Disney have been with just my husband and myself, enjoying a “kid’s” paradise from an adult’s point of view! Taking an “adults only” WDW trip is something you should start planning like NOW. WHY, you might ask? Well, here are a few reasons:
The Food: There are so many places that offer innovative and sophisticated dining experiences at WDW – it’s the perfect place to try something new, like Moroccan food, or African, or New American – and you can take your time, order wine, even try the 5 course tasting menu, without having to worry about if the kids will like the food there, and without having to get up 15 times during your meal to go to the bathroom or the buffet with the little ones. Many kids these days are adventurous when it comes to dining, but if yours are not exactly ready for anything outside the chicken nuggets realm, then vacationing at WDW with adults is a great chance for you to try something non dinosaur shaded, at a place where ketchup is not the only available condiment
The Resorts: When you travel with your family, you think about getting a hotel that will suit everyone – one that has a great pool and kid-friendly décor and activities. When it’s an all adults trip, you can shift your focus more towards luxury – And Disney has a ton of amazing on-site Resorts – many of which have tons to offer for the “adult” travelers. Bigger, nicer rooms, Jacuzzi tubs, 5 star restaurants, a great area to lounge at poolside, concierge service, room service, fully stocked bars – these are just some of the things you will find at some of Disney’s Resorts.

The Nightlife: Enjoy some of the entertainment options at WDW with your adults only party – bowling at Splittsville, dine in movies at the AMC theater, live music at the House Of Blues, drinks in Pleasure Island, shopping at Downtown Disney, plus amazing restaurants are available all over the World – heck, you could even eat late and order drinks with dinner, why not, you’re an adult after all!
“Adults Only” Fun: Disney World is home to golf courses, Spas, gyms, running/walking trails, unique places to try a new drink (drink around the world, anyone?), and they even have places where you can rent boats/jet skis or enjoy para-sailing or water skiing too! The world class spas offer a range of treatments, and personally I can’t think of a better way to relax and enjoy my vacation than with a couple’s massage (maybe you could even book it as a surprise for your significant other?)
Every night’s a date night – without the kids, you’re free to reconnect and enjoy Disney with your honey – indulge in some (rare) adult conversation and interaction, and take some time to relax and revel in the fact that you’re getting the chance to enjoy Walt Disney World – and experience from a “Grown up” point of view. I think you’ll find it’s every bit as magical (if not more so!) than it was when you were a kid!
