Things to do at Walt Disney World that don’t require a theme park ticket: Activities You Can Experience Across Multiple Resorts

Things to do at Walt Disney World that don’t require a theme park ticket: Activities You Can Experience Across Multiple Resorts

When you hear people tell you that a week at Walt Disney World won’t even scratch the surface of things you can see and do while vacationing there, we really aren’t kidding. And there is still SO much to do beyond the parks. I always suggest planning a few days away from the parks where you can enjoy the pool and not feel rushed to run from one ride to another. 

Depending on what your family may be looking to experience, check out all the different activities you can find at various resort hotels across Walt Disney World… there’s something for everyone!!

Daily Resort Activities: Beyond the nighttime movie, there are always all kinds of activities available at your Disney Resort hotel. Whether you want to make your own tie-dye shirt, roast marshmallows at night, or play games and scavenger hunts, Disney always has something going on to keep you entertained while you’re at the resort. Some activities may have a small fee — check your resort schedule for times and pricing.

Resort Hopping: This one is so simple and completely free… It’s always fun to experience what the other resorts have to offer — whether you just want to explore or perhaps check out which resorts you may want to visit on your next vacation to Walt Disney World. Resort hopping is especially exciting around the major holidays.

Ride the monorail, skyliner, boats and ferries: It may sound silly, but even just riding Disney’s transportation can be fun! Kids love the iconic monorail ride around the Seven Seas Lagoon; the Skyliner provides views never seen before over some of the Epcot resorts, and who doesn’t love a leisurely boat or ferry ride? No park ticket needed to hop on any of these and ride around – and it’s completely free to do this (unless of course you make purchases when you stop somewhere). Adults enjoy a monorail or skyliner restaurant/bar crawl – sample food and drink from the options along either of these lines – and maybe even catch some fireworks too!

Start a Pressed Penny Collection: Interested in starting a new collection of something Disney Resort inspired? You can make pressed pennies across all of the parks and resorts — these keepsakes will last forever, so when you resort hop, don’t forget to make a pressed penny to remember your vacation!

Character Dining at Resorts: Some of my favorite character dining experiences are actually at the resorts — not the parks!! These are great opportunities to dine with some of your favorite characters on days you don’t have a park ticket — or you can enjoy dinner on the day you arrive to kickoff your vacation — or breakfast the day you leave to stretch out your vacation for a little while longer. Check with your Travel Advisor to see which resorts are currently offering character dining.

Nighttime movies at the resort: Did you know that every Walt Disney World Resort hotel offers a wide variety of activities so every member of the family will have fun, even while not at the parks? Make sure you check out the movie schedule at your resort — there will be one playing every night during your say!

Electrical Water Pageant: You won’t want to miss this classic that takes place every night on the Seven Seas Lagoon. This 15 minute show runs every night and can be viewed along the Seven Seas Lagoon from Disney’s Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Maybe book dinner at one of these resorts so you can catch this show afterward (and maybe the fireworks too!)

Watch fireworks from select resorts: Did you know that you can see fireworks from several of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels? There are some great spots to catch Enchantment at Disney’s Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary and Bay Lake Tower — and even from Wilderness Lodge! Same goes with Harmonious from Disney’s BoardWalk, Beach and Yacht Club, as well as the Swan and Dolphin. While it may not be a prime viewing location and not a substitute for seeing these nighttime shows in their respective parks, you can surely catch a glimpse and enjoy the view from these resorts, especially if you have a guest room facing the right direction and higher up.

Rent a boat: Groups of 10 or less can rent a pontoon boat by the half-hour. A fun way to explore the waters at Walt Disney World! Kayaks and canoes are also available for rent. Reservations are not required, however, rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Go fishing: Did you know that fishing excursions are offered at Walt Disney World? You can book a 2- or 4-hour guided fishing excursion for up to 5 people. They’ll provide everything you need to enjoy your time out on the water. These excursions are available at the following resorts: Disney’s Fort Wilderness, Caribbean Beach, Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Polynesian, Port Orleans – Riverside, Wilderness Lodge and Yacht Club Resorts. There are also dockside fishing options available at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and Fort Wilderness Resort. Fishing reservations are highly encouraged and can be reserved as early as 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date.

Rent a Cabana: Guests staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, as well as Disney’s Beach and Yacht Club Resorts will have the opportunity to rent a cabana by the day if they’d like! Pricing can fluctuate based on the day and season – advance reservations are highly encouraged and can be made as early as 60 days prior to your stay.

Rent a surrey: 2- and 4-person surrey bikes are available for rent at Disney’s BoardWalk, Old Key West, Port Orleans – French Quarter, Port Orleans – Riverside, and Saratoga Springs Resorts.

Relax at the spa: Relax and unwind at one of the spas at the Walt Disney World Resort. Senses at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa features both spa treatments and salon services. Senses at Saratoga Springs has spa treatments only. There is also Mandara Spa at the Walt Disney World Dolphin. There are even some basic spa services available for younger guests to enjoy some pampering.

Things to do at Walt Disney World that don’t require a theme park ticket : Reconnect with Nature at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

When you hear people tell you that a week at Walt Disney World won’t even scratch the surface of things you can see and do while vacationing there, we really aren’t kidding. And there is still SO much to do beyond the parks. I always suggest planning a few days away from the parks where you can enjoy the pool and not feel rushed to run from one ride to another. 

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is a bit off the beaten path. Many people don’t realize how much there is to see and do there – and you don’t need to be staying at Fort Wilderness to enjoy these fabulous experiences. 

Make it a point to visit Tri-Circle D Ranch. One of the best kept secrets at Walt Disney World is the Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.Stroll through the stables to see Cinderella’s Ponies and the majestic horses of Main Street, U.S.A.. Discover the Dragon Calliope—the horse-drawn musical instrument that Walt Disney purchased for the Mickey Mouse Club Circus Parade at Disneyland Park in the 1950s. Animal lovers of all ages will delight in the variety of breeds that live at Tri-Circle-D Ranch, including Appaloosas, Arabians, Belgians, Clydesdales, paint horses, Percherons and quarter horses, plus Shetland ponies.

Horseback riding is available here and advance reservations are highly encouraged. Riders must be at least 9 years old, taller than 48 inches and less than 250lb. Are you traveling with children that are not quite old enough for horseback riding? Pony rides are available for children 2 years and older; they must be no taller than 48 inches and weigh less than 80lbs. Reservations are not needed for pony rides.

The whole family can enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride (bonus for you if you’re visiting during the holiday season – you can even experience a Sleigh Ride!!) Wagon rides are also available here if you’d prefer to experience an old-fashioned ride through the resort grounds. (Note: Horse Drawn Carriage Rides are also available at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside). 

You can even mine for gems at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Purchase a bag at the Bike Barn and you can get sifting in no time!

And of course, there’s the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. If you’re looking for some fun entertainment with your meal, you won’t want to miss this exciting experience. This takes place at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resorts 3 times a day and you’ll love every energetic minute of the show. Reservations are required and can be made as early as 60 days prior to your vacation arrival date.

If you visit during the holidays, guests go ALL OUT decorating their campsites… definitely take some time to explore the resort and take lots of pictures!!

Things to do at Walt Disney World that don’t require a theme park ticket : Fun Experiences at Disney Springs

Be sure to read the first part in this series: Things to do at Walt Disney World outside of the theme parks – Sports Activities!

When you hear people tell you that a week at Walt Disney World won’t even scratch the surface of things you can see and do while vacationing there, we really aren’t kidding. And there is still SO much to do beyond the parks. I always suggest planning a few days away from the parks where you can enjoy the pool and not feel rushed to run from one ride to another. 

I feel like so many people overlook Disney Springs. They figure there’s plenty of dining options at the parks and resorts – but there is SO much more to Disney Springs than just dining and shopping. Check out just a few of the special experiences you can partake in at Disney Springs… and remember, no theme park ticket is required to visit!!!

Weekend/Sunday Brunch Options at Disney Springs: Disney Springs is well known for the incredible dining options for lunch and dinner, but did you know that there are also some BRUNCH options on the weekends?! House of Blues, Terralina, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, Wine Bar George, Maria & Enzos, The Edison, Raglan Road and STK all offer brunch on the weekends! The Boathouse even offers a Captain’s Sing-along Brunch that you won’t want to miss!! Some of these restaurants only offer brunch on Sunday while others do offer brunch on both Saturday and Sunday, so make sure you double check the days you’re looking to dine.

Float on the Aerophile at Disney Springs: Aerophile at Disney Springs will allow you to soar sky-high during an 8-minute tethered adventure in the world’s largest hand-painted helium balloon. This balloon ascends up to 400 feet and will allow you to see panoramic views of up to 10 miles away on a clear day! Advanced reservations are not required. This operates weather permitting.

Bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes: Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs is a great rainy day or non-park day activity that will be fun for the whole family. Whether you choose to dine there or just bowl, it’s sure to be a hit with all ages. What’s feather bowling? A bit of a cross between bocce ball, curling, shuffleboard horseshoes, and cornhole. There are also pool tables, tons of flat screen TVs, and music to keep the fun moving. I advise booking your lane ahead of time on their website.

Catch a Movie at AMC: Want to do something a little more relaxing? Or perhaps it’s a rainy day and you’d rather not go into the parks. AMC Dine-In at Disney Springs will allow you to catch the latest movies while you enjoy a meal. There’s even a full bar!

Disney PhotoPass Studio: If you purchased the MemoryMaker, make sure you stop by the Disney PhotoPass Studio! Many people don’t realize that you can stop into this studio at Disney Springs and have the amazing PhotoPass photographers snap pictures of you and your family with many fabulous backdrops — and it’s included in the price of your MemoryMaker! This is especially great if your kiddos just got a makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (reopening later in 2022 — date TBD) — capture those moments so they last forever!

Ride an Amphicar at Boathouse: The BOATHOUSE is the only place in the world that offers the unforgettable & thrilling experience of a Captain’s Guided Tour in a vintage Amphicar. These rare cars drive on land and enter the water with a splash, taking you on a Captain Guided, 25-minute tour of the landmarks of Disney Springs. Their fleet of Amphicars were purchased from private collections worldwide – there were less than 4,000 of these unique amphibious vehicles produced during the 1960’s. Less than 400 exist worldwide today. These tours are first come, first served – so double check when they open and get there early!

Cirque de Soleil’s Drawn to Life: Set your imagination in motion with Drawn to Life—a love letter to the art of Disney animation. In this first-ever collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, journey into a world where an animator’s desk becomes the stage and drawings come alive. The show is a celebration of life, accentuated by the delightful, mesmerizing movements of Cirque du Soleil’s acrobatic mastery. Advance reservations are highly encouraged. 

Live Irish Music and Dancing at Raglan Road: If you’re in the mood for some awesome Irish food and entertainment, you won’t want to miss Raglan Road at Disney Springs. The menu offers traditional Irish Pub fare and there’s a live Irish band and dancing every evening! They even offer brunch on the weekend!

Enjoy a Concert at House of Blues: Concerts have returned to House of Blues at Disney Springs! If there’s an artist heading to House of Blues that you’d like to see, check out the concert lineup and reserve your tickets ASAP!!!

Complete the Ultimate Taste Test at Coca Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar: You’ll find fun for all ages at the Coca-Cola Store in Disney Springs. Not only will you find the Freestyle Experience with up to 5 refills within an hour of your initial purchase, you’ll also find a create-your-own beverage experience where you can play mixologist  to craft your own drinks, plus you can sample up to 16 different beverages from various countries around the world when you order an International, float or combo tray. They also offer adult libations for guests ages 21 and older. 

Get a silhouette: Did you want to get a silhouette portrait done when you were in the Magic Kingdom but just didn’t have time to stop? At Disney Springs, artisans are available to hand-cut paper silhouettes of you and the whole family! The Silhouette Portraits Cart is located in the Marketplace near Arribas Bros.

Ride the carousel and train at Disney Springs: I know, you’ve been riding rides for days in the parks, but if your little ones still feel the urge to ride a ride, there is a small carousel and kid-sized train that you can purchase ride tickets for at Disney Springs (in the Marketplace). I may have bribed my daughter more than once to behave at dinner and then we’d let her ride the rides after. Just a thought if you need it!

Pick a Pearl at Disney Springs: Bring home an oyster’s precious gem—experience the thrill of discovering your very own pearl treasure at the Pearl Factory Kiosk in the Marketplace at Disney Springs.

And this list only scratches the surface of everything you can see and do at Disney Springs. What’s your favorite thing to do when you visit – did we miss it? Is there something new you learned from this list that you want to check out next time? We want to know!

Sports Activities

When you hear people tell you that a week at Walt Disney World won’t even scratch the surface of things you can see and do while vacationing there, we really aren’t kidding. And there is still SO much to do beyond the parks. I always suggest planning a few days away from the parks where you can enjoy the pool and not feel rushed to run from one ride to another. 

If you or someone you’re traveling with is a sports enthusiast, here are some great activities to consider for your next vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

Mini Golf: There are 2 places to go mini-golfing at Walt Disney World. Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Miniature Golf is located near Hollywood Studios (there are 2 courses here – Fantasia Gardens is better for younger families, and Fairways is a little more challenging with some holes having a range of just over 100 feet long). Winter Summerland Miniature Golf also has 2 courses – one is summer-themed, and one is winter-themed; Winter Summerland is located near Blizzard Beach.

Foot Golf: Is it golf? Is it soccer? It’s a little bit of both! Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course is proud to offer FootGolf, a sport that combines the patient precision of golf with the athletic coordination of soccer. This 9-hole FootGolf course is certified by the American FootGolf League (AFGL) and is fun for the whole family!! This course is located near Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Golf: Walt Disney World has 4 golf courses, 3 of them are 18-hole championship layouts playing to a par of 72. For less-skilled golfers who are still learning to play or families with young children, we recommend the 9-hole walking course, Disney′s Oak Trail Golf Course. Don’t want to fly with clubs? They are available to rent from the course. If you’re looking for a way to save money, try the Sunrise 9 or Sunset 9 for a deal! Be sure to reserve your tee time in advance! 

Check out the Water Parks: Walt Disney World is home to 2 water parks. Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Blizzard Beach will make you feel as though you’ve been transported to a ski resort – except it’s filled with water slides and winding rivers instead of ski slopes! There’s plenty here for everyone, even your littlest water lover! Typhoon Lagoon is themed to resemble a tropical paradise that has survived a typhoon – plenty of water slides, a great kids and beach area, a lazy river, and even a wave pool! If you’re up for the challenge, you can even schedule surfing lessons before Typhoon Lagoon opens (additional fees apply and reservations are required).

Visit ESPN Wide World of Sports: Walt Disney World is home to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Here, there are 230 acres of professionally run, state-of-the-art facilities host over 60 sports and thousands of events for athletes of all ages and abilities. Train and compete with your team—or catch the excitement as a spectator—in this grand sports setting where classic athletic ideals meet contemporary innovation. Whether you visit as an athlete, a spectator, or just to dine at the ESPN Wide World of Sport Grill, this stop will be one that sports lovers enjoy.

Play Tennis at the Resorts: Tennis courts can be found at Saratoga Springs, Yacht Club, Fort Wilderness, Contemporary, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boardwalk, and Old Key West. DVC guests have access to equipment for free, otherwise there is a small fee associated with renting equipment. Tennis lessons may also be available to those interested in learning!

Play Volleyball at the Resorts: The following resorts have volleyball courts on-site: Caribbean Beach, Contemporary, Coronado Springs, Old Key West, Polynesian, Yacht & Beach Clubs, The Campsites at Fort Wilderness, and the Dolphin and Swan Hotels. There’s no fee to borrow equipment for DVC members, though there may be a small fee for all other guests staying on-site.

Play Basketball at the Resorts: Equipment and access are free for guests with a valid resort ID at Disney World Resorts if you want to shoot some hoops! Basketball courts are located at Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village, Contemporary/Bay Lake Tower, the Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, and Fort Wilderness.

Have you experienced any of these on a vacation to Walt Disney World? My family loves the water parks (Typhoon Lagoon in particular – we love the wave pool!!) Don’t forget, many of these experiences can be included if you add the Water & Sport Option (or the Plus Option if you’re going to have the Park Hopper) to your vacation package. Talk to your Travel Advisor about how you can experience many of these activities for one low upgrade fee. 

Stay tuned each Monday for another installment!

Five Tips for Traveling with Sensory Sensitive Kids

Five Tips for Traveling with Sensory Sensitive Kids

Traveling to Walt Disney World can be a challenge, for any typical family, on any given day! Now throw in things like sensory sensitivities, ADHD, autism…or any other neurodiverse characters and the game plan literally has to change! Here are five tips from our most recent trip to Walt Disney World if your kiddo has a sensory processing disorder, sensitivities or any other sensory issues.

For a little background, my almost 11-year-old daughter was diagnosed in Kindergarten with ADHD. She was given the typical regimen of meds, but nothing ever really helped her in a sufficient way, for any length of time. Fast forward a few years and after suspecting she may actually be autistic, she underwent a day of evaluations. We worked with an amazing team at UVA University Hospital in Charlottesville, VA to discover that she has combined type ADHD (which present uniquely in, severe anxiety and sensory processing issues or sensitivities. As she’s gotten older she’s learned to cope with these things in a variety of ways and we are currently unmedicated. Approaching Walt Disney World there are some things we do to help alleviate the stress for her!

Tip #1

Disney offers those “who have difficulty tolerating extended waits in a conventional queue environment due to a disability.” This pass allows us to still wait for an attraction, at the posted wait time, but not in line. While you can reserve this pass 30 days prior to your trip, we opted to wait since the trip was a surprise for the kids. We simply stopped by guest services where they asked my daughter a series of questions. After which, the disability access icon appeared inside our My Disney Experience account. You only have to do this ONC for the whole trip and up to 5 members of your party may join the guest for who the pass is for. Our party was 6 so this pass was just for 2 kids and myself. We would use this pass similar to Disney Genie+ or the old Fastpass. We’d get a return time and while waiting, we could do other things. She often likes shopping or meeting characters OR we can wait for attractions that have less intense queues (these are often the more family-friendly rides and shows).

Tip #2

Don’t be afraid to take a break! For a lot of people, it’s obvious the parks can be a little overstimulating, on the best of days, but for kids with other sensory issues, EVERYTHING can be overstimulating…from the anticipation of getting ready to the bus stop, entering security, scanning magic bands…the crowds. For us, it’s important that we give her a little bit of downtime to decompress and let her get all her energy! We love to spend downtime swimming, relaxing in the room or sometimes we’ll venture outside the parks! Here are a few non-park things to do!

-Bowling at Disney Springs
-Visit the horses at the Tri-Circle D Ranch at Fort Wilderness
-Check out the resort scavenger hunts
-Most resorts offer smores and/or movies at the resorts in the evenings
-Rent a bike, surrey or boat! Our favorite resorts to do this at are Wilderness Lodge, Fort Wilderness Campgrounds and the Boardwalk
-Mini-Golf! Disney offers TWO distinct courses; Winter Summerland and Fantasia Gardens
-Resort Tours! Any guest is welcome to ride the monorail or Skyliner! Visit all the resorts along both these unique transportation lines!

Tip #3

Special events can be a great option with less crowds, depending on the time of year you are visiting. For us, we opted for the Eats and Seats dessert party this time. This space gave me daughter room to move around, there were significantly less crowds and we were situated a little further back from the castle. If your kiddos have a big fear of fireworks, you might want to try the Fireworks Cruise from the Seven Seas Lagoon! You’ll get a beautiful view of the fireworks, in a less intense way!

Tip #4

This is a big one…and I forgot it! While we had pre-planned to attend the dessert party, I had forgotten to throw her protective earwear in the suitcase! She made due, but it was definitely an unnecessary stressor for us at the party! This is where lists and pre-packing come in handy! Things you might want to pack are:

-Protective earwear
-Special blankets or stuffies that calm your child
-Sensory objects to help them in the parks. We’ve been looking into purchasing calm strips!
-Smells or snacks that remind your child they are in a safe space. Smells (like oils or lotions) you use at home could do the trick!
– While I didn’t bring the kids tables/phones into the park, for some kids this gives them the sensory break they need!
-Don’t be afraid to bring a stroller for kids you wouldn’t typically use one for. This gives them a calming, enclosed space to decompress
-Stop by guest services if you need ANYTHING! They are happy to help you or guide you in the right direction!

Tip #5

While getting up early might not be for everyone, early park access allowed us some time to in the park with WAY less people. Early Park Access is 30 minutes every day, at every park, for all resort guests! If you are a Deluxe guest, and a night owl, check into Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on select evenings! These extra 2 hours in an uncrowded park can be a great option with far less stimulation!
