Walt Disney World may be the most kid-friendly place on earth, but it’s also a great place for adults to vacation – even without the kids. If you haven’t been to Walt Disney World since you were a kid in the 1970s, you should know that a lot has changed. Seriously. Disney World has expanded, adding parks, resorts, restaurants, attractions, events, and more, so that just about every single demographic from busy toddlers to affluent retirees can enjoy a vacation there!
Here are our top three reasons to visit Disney World as an adult…
#1 Relax at the Resort
Disney World has several resorts throughout its sprawling complex, many of which are adult-oriented. Don’t worry about finding a Mickey Mouse chocolate on your pillow or having to order a “Donald Duck Sauce Pasta” dish. Disney World can surprise you, checking all its cartoonish attributes at the door to cater to adult tastes.
You don’t have to ride Space Mountain. Stay “home” at the resort, dig your toes into some sand, or sit by the pool, sipping piña coladas!
#2 Gourmet Food & Restaurants
Disney World (and the greater Orlando area) is also home to some of the best gourmet restaurants in Florida. If you thought cheeseburgers and hot dogs were all Disney had to offer, think again! Whether you like exciting fusion cuisine or rich and decadent French dishes, Disney World has the restaurants, chefs, and first-class service to create a meal that you’ll remember for years.
#3 Special Events
Lastly, Disney World does a great job with hosting special events that are geared toward adults. Skip the Princess Parade, and check out the Epcot Food and Wine Festival (taking place in Fall 2013). The Food and Wine festival is just one of the many adult-oriented special events that will be taking place at Disney World in 2013.
