15 Things to do in Walt Disney World Without Kids

Disney definitely isn’t only for kids. Many adults and couples take vacations to the most magical place on earth. You may be wondering what there could possibly be to do as an adult. Don’t worry, this list will definitely help you find something (many things) to do to make your vacation unique. While there are many drinking options on this list, don’t let that deter you. Almost everything in Disney is adult friendly. Disney is a place to let your inner kid out, but if you are looking for options to make you feel more like an adult, these options won’t let you down

1. Drinking Around the World

EPCOT has 11 different countries. Each country offers several different drink options. You can get a margarita in Mexico and an Octoberfest in Germany. Spend the evening walking around the world and trying all the different options available.

Side Note: You can buy/make cool lanyards to document which drink options you’ve tried.

2. Spa Day

Take a day and just relax at the spa. It’s a great option if you don’t want to walk around the parks all day. Here is the list of spa options around Walt Disney World.

  1. La Vida Health Club (Massage/Salon/Fitness) – Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
  2. Mandara Spa – Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel
  3. Muscles & Bustles Health Club – Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
  4. Old Key West Exercise Room – Disney’s Old Key West Resort
  5. Olympiad Fitness Center – Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  6. Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
  7. Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
  8. Ship Shape Massage Salon Fitness – Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  9. Sturdy Branches Health Club – Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  10. Survival of the Fittest Fitness Center – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
  11. Zahanati Massage & Fitness Center – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

3. Golfing

Walt Disney World has 3 championship-level golf courses. They are run by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, so you know, they’re the real deal! There isn’t an age restriction but there are far fewer kids out on the course. Make sure to pack golf attire since Disney is pretty strict on their dress code.

4. Jellyrolls Piano Bar

This awesome dueling piano bar is on Disney’s Boardwalk. This is a great option if you are looking for some nighttime entertainment.

5. Atlantic Dance Hall

Looking for something a little more “interactive”? Try the Atlantic Dance Hall on the Boardwalk! It’s a nightclub that offers live entertainment in an Art Deco ballroom. You won’t be disappointed.

6. Guided Tours

Disney offers a wide variety of tour options that can last anywhere from 1 hour to 8. I’ve never had the privilege of going on one but I’ve heard the Keys to the Kingdom Tour is an absolute MUST! You spend 7 hours touring all of Magic Kingdom. Seeing everything from the ground floor where the characters walk around to behind the scenes secrets no one else knows. EPCOT also offers a very similar option. However, my absolute must do tour is the Seas Aqua Tour. You get to scuba dive in EPCOT’s aquarium. Does that not sound absolutely awesome?!

Side note: Disney also offers VIP access tours. For a pretty steep price, you are guided by a cast member and you are able to get a behind the scene tour as well as premium ride access. Lines? Not for you! 

7. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Inspired by Indiana Jones, this 1940’s airplane hangar has been turned into a very unique bar. Located in Disney Springs, it’s one of many bar options throughout the area but it is definitely one of my favorite places to sit back and relax with a drink. They offer small food options and they have a fantastic deck that overlooks the rest of Disney Springs.

8. Monorail Bar Crawl

This is a very unique bar crawl and one you can only do in Disney. You get on the monorail and hop from one resort to another and stop at the bars along the way.

There is also a new tour called Highway in the Sky. For $170 you start at the Contemporary resort. You get on the monorail and stop at a few resorts and they have food and wine tastings ready for you when you arrive. You learn the history and background of the pairings and once you finish at one you head to the next. You end with dessert back at the Contemporary.

9. Disney Springs Late Night Party

As I mentioned above, Disney Springs has many different bar options. However, this late night party takes place outside and has live entertainment for adults. Whether it’s a comedian or live music, you won’t be disappointed.

10. Fine Dining

Are you there with a group of girl friends? Your significant other? Or just by yourself? No matter whom you’re with, you can always sit down and enjoy a nice meal. Disney offers many different dining options and I would highly recommend trying as many of them as possible.

11. Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto & Tiki Bar

This is a tiki bar and lounge located at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. It is based on the original at Disneyland and Adventureland in Magic Kingdom. Like many things in Walt Disney World, it is an interactive bar with effects and entertainment that is unique to this bar alone.

12. Pool Day

What better way to sit back and relax than a pool day! One of my favorite things to do is spend the morning by the pool, just enjoying my vacation.

13. Amphicar

These car-boats are located right outside of The Boathouse in Disney Springs. You get in and the driver takes the car down a ramp right out onto the lake of Disney Springs. The ride takes about an hour and it’s definitely a unique experience.

14. Tequila Bar in Mexico

This bar is located downstairs in the Mexico pavilion in EPCOT. It is not particular easy to find, but when you do; you’ll go in and find a seat. You receive a menu with over 70 tequila choices. They also offer flight options if you just can’t decide.

15. The Void

This is a new experience at Disney Springs. It is a new Virtual Reality location that offers 3 different scenarios. Each scenario is unique but all are catered to the VR enthusiast in your group. These are the scenarios offered right now.

Ralph Breaks VR
Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire
Ghostbusters Dimension

Whether you are drinking around the world or just lying by the pool, make sure you make your vacation catered to you. Sit back and relax or go all out at the parks. Disney is a place for everyone and all the different experience options shows that. As an adult make sure you find the joy in the little things. Skipping that long line, sleeping in or just spending the day at the spa. Disney won’t let you down.
