Disney World might be marketed to your kids more than it is to you, but that doesn’t mean adults can’t have fun in the park too. There’s plenty of activities for adults to enjoy during their stay, but here’s the 5 you should be sure to check out while you’re there.

1. Extra Magic Hours

If you’re looking to ride some of the more popular rides, but don’t want to stand in the long lines, this is the time for you. If you book a stay at one of the Disney World Hotels through a site like Expedia, you’ll have access to extra magic hours. This gives you early access into the park, and the ability to stay later than guests who are just there for the day. Lines will be shorter and you may even get to ride some of your favorite rides more than once. As an adult at Disney, standing in long lines takes away from the fun, so this is your ticket to avoiding the hassle and enjoying more of your time in the park.


2. Hunting Hidden Mickeys

All around the Disney parks are hidden Mickeys. these may be a full or partial picture of Mickey Mouse, or just a silhouette consisting of one large circle with two smaller circles for ears. If you’re walking around the park with your kids all day, it can become a bit boring. Be on the lookout for these hidden mickey’s everywhere you go and suddenly, you won’t be bored anymore. It can become addicting to search for and point out as many hidden Mickeys as possible during your stay at the park.

Hidden Mickeys can be spotted inside hotels, restaurants, and gift shops as well. Make it a competition with your spouse or friends to see who can find the most hidden Mickeys to earn some serious bragging rights. This is a great way to pass time while you’re waiting in line, walking your kids around the park, or relaxing at the hotel after a long day. The more you find the more fun it becomes, so start hunting right away!

3. Illuminations

If you’re looking for something to make your trip truly remarkable, this is it. Each night in Epcot there is a beautiful display of fireworks that will take your breath away. Many people find the display to be so beautiful, it makes them emotional.

The display is unique, incredible, and truly indescribable. If you’re visiting Disney World, you can’t miss the illumination display. This is an activity kids and adults can both enjoy, and it makes for some great photo opportunities too. There’s no way to put into words what this display looks like, you’ll just have to see it for yourself.

4. Spa Day

Although it can be hard to tear yourself away from the park, it’s important to remember that this is a vacation and you should be relaxing. The Disney World hotels all offer incredible spa day packages to help you unwind and destress. Relax and rejuvenate with a deep tissue massage, a pedicure, or even a hot stone massage. Many of the spas around the parks book months in advance, so be sure to make your reservation early.

Childcare is available while you receive your massage, or you can invest in a child and teen spa package as well. If massages and saunas aren’t for you, then consider getting a Disney makeover. You’re never too old to transform into your favorite Disney character.

There are hair and nail services available to give you a Disney style that will last, and make for some adorable photos. Take your kids and get a full family Disney makeover, it’s something you both can enjoy and it gives you a break from walking around the hot sweaty park all day.

5. Epcot

Of course, every adult needs to enjoy Epcot while they’re in the park. Epcot is designed for adults to have as much fun as possible, so take advantage of it. There are 11 countries in Epcot, so you can try food from around the world. If you’re over 21, many people like to drink around the world. You can try an authentic beverage from each country, and it might even put you in a better mood for the rest of the day. Disney may have been designed for kids, but Epcot was made for some good, healthy, adult fun, so take advantage of it!


If you want to get the most out of your Disney experience, bundle your hotel and flight packages with travel sites like Expedia. Once you arrive at the hotel, ask the concierge for a list of activities that are adult friendly while you’re in the park.

Plan a date night out and take advantage of the childcare available in the hotels. Your kids should have fun during your Disney vacation, but so should you! If you don’t have kids, but still want to enjoy the fun that Disney has to offer, don’t hesitate to book your trip. There’s plenty of rides and activities made for adults, so you’re guaranteed to have a great time at The Magic Kingdom.
