Monorail Happy Hour - An Adult Escape!

For those of you who have been to Walt Disney World before, you know that around 2 pm, the Magic Kingdom gets super crowded, the sun gets super hot, and the complaining/meltdowns/tantrums begin – and we aren’t just talking kid meltdowns, I have witnessed many adult ones too! It’s hot, crowded, you’re tired, and you just need a break.

My suggestion? Hop on the monorail and head over to the three monorail resorts for some rest, relaxation, and some adult beverages!

Start your tour at The Grand Floridian Resort, a grand resort with a lot to take in! Stroll around the lobby and check it all out, and then head over to Mizner’s Lounge – where they specialize in vintage ports and brandies. Or, head over to the Lounge at Citrico’s, a cozy bar serving up specialty martinis and international wines. Both lounges also serve a selection of light appetizers in case you should get hungry. After enjoying a martini, I recommend a stroll around the Resort, I especially enjoy the shops here, and the wedding pavillion is beautiful as well.

Next Stop? The Polynesian Resort– just a short ride on the monorail and you arrive in a tropical paradise! The Resort is South pacific themed and has beautiful flowers and landscaping both inside and out – this is my favorite resort to visit, and I like to stroll around the pool area and the shops/lobby, and after I stop at Captain Cook’s for my dole whip, I head on over to the Tambu Lounge, a full service bar where I can order a pina colada and pretend I really am in a tropical paradise!

By the time you head over to the Contemporary Resort, you’ll probably be ready for dinner, so I recommend you make an ADR ahead of time for the California Grill, and enjoy their fine food and wine selections as you relax and take in the amazing views of the Magic Kingdom. If you’re just in the mood for a drink, then check out the Outer Rim which has a full bar and a great view of Bay Lake, and both of the pools offer bars with a selection of snacks as well.

Now that you’ve had a drink or two and checked out some new Resorts, you’re all recharged and ready to hit the Parks again!

And if you’re not a big drinker, you can still have a lot of fun at these Resorts – the views, the beautiful grounds, the shops, the food – they are all amazing at of the Monorail Resorts, and it’s a great way to spend an afternoon relaxing and checking out some of the best that WDW has to offer!
