What to Do on a Disney World Adult Vacation in Orlando

Disney World caters to the young and young at heart, but it has a grown-up side too. Adults will find a number of activities and restaurants in Disney World’s theme parks and water parks. It is possible to spend a week or two relaxing at our Orlando vacation homes, golfing on championship courses, playing tennis, jet skiing, sunning on beaches, relaxing at spas, dining and rocking out at a concert without ever putting foot in the Magic Kingdom. However,  for couples who want the full experience, check out these things to do on a Disney World adult vacation.

Disney World Adult Vacation: 7 Activities for Grown-ups

Even if you’ve outgrown mouse ears, a few hours at Magic Kingdom provides a stroll down memory lane. Grown-ups can’t resist the Pirates of the Caribbean ride or thrills on Space Mountain. Animal Kingdom also ranks as adult favorite. Safari past giraffes and elephants, journey down dense jungle paths or take pictures in front of the Tree of Life. Other experiences that also await at Disney World include:

  • Swim with dolphins
  • Go behind the scenes on the Backstage Magic tour
  • Join Captain Jack to unleash your inner pirate
  • Take a romantic carriage ride through the park
  • See a live show, such as Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King
  • Spend a day with Disney’s steam train crew
  • Relax while cruising aboard a luxury yacht

For an added bonus, head to Universal Studios to learn about movie magic. The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular offers high-octane fun, and don’t miss the Incredible Hulk Coaster and Wizarding World of Harry Potter. For international cuisine, dine at Epcot, which has dozens of casual and upscale restaurants. Then shop for souvenirs to take home.
