When you think about a visit to the WDW resort, the first thing that goes through your head are images of kids holding hands with Mickey as they skip through the Castle, or a young girl dressed like a princess giving Belle a hug…but there’s more to the marketing machine of Disney!
It’s not our role to tell you how to plan a vacation to the happiest place on earth, but sometimes you need an Adults-Only trip to really clear your head and wear your Mickey Ears proudly!
Here are 20 tips for an EPIC Adult Only Trip to Walt Disney World
- Start Early – Like super early!
- Go for ice cream at 11pm or midnight, because you’re an adult!
- Get a breakfast cupcake…because you’re an adult!
- Naps….because you’re an adult and you need them!
- Don’t waste time at the resort in the morning – too many kids
- Don’t waste a credit on a breakfast – because why bother?
- Eat when you’re hungry, but plan to eat off-hours
- Organize your FastPass+ reservations to be consecutive in the morning
- Use the Package Delivery Service
- Photos early when you still look fresh and the PhotoPass Photographers aren’t really awake yet
- If you can’t get into a restaurant for a Table Service Meal, ask to sit at the lounge/bar. You’ll get the same menu without the reservations!
- Pin trade, because it’s not just for kids! AND kids will usually trade some awesome pins without even knowing it;)
- Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a fun activity for adults too!
- Ask to ride in the front/back row of the major attractions, because it’ll change your experience!
- Bring something to do when you’re in lines or waiting for reservations. This may include updating your instagram, checking for Hidden Mickeys or thinking about the next Dole Whip that you’re going to get.
- Get a lot of Dole Whips! (Tag us in your photos @HowToMCO!)
- Be spontaneous! Don’t worry about not getting to meet every character or ride every attraction. If there’s a huge line, move on to the next activity and don’t sweat the small stuff!
- Eat at Resorts, because not only is it great for food, it’s also really fun to explore some of the buildings and be all “I’m an adult”
- Talk to the cast members and ask for their recommendations and hidden gems, because they’re always happy to share some insider tips on where to go and where NOT to go!
- Don’t eat at Chef Mickeys, T-Rex, Akerhaus or Crystal Palace…because you don’t need that kind of stress in your life. You can still meet the characters at Tusker House and get a great meal at the same time.And our Bonus Tip
- A reservation for Victoria and Alberts is your goal for the trip! It’s worth the splurge price and without kids, you really won’t have to worry about picky eaters!
