Think Walt Disney World is a place where just kids have fun? Think again. We had three of our Mouze Kateerz writers take a look at what it takes for an adult to have a ball at Disney, without a child in sight, at least not a kid they brought with them!
“Kid free Disney? Yes, I said it,” says Maleah Moskoff, a Mouze Kateerz staff writer from www.chachatea.net, who also provided many pictures for today’s article from one of her many adult-only trips. “The Disney magic is not just for the little ones. Think about the architecture, food and night life. I have made several adult only trips to Disney World. Before I had a child, I brought my then boyfriend, now husband to Disney on a package. We stayed at the very adult friendly Yacht Club, walked slowly through Epcot, stopping for whatever food looked good, enjoyed late night strolls through Downtown Disney and quiet time in the adult pools. “
“As an adult, I have visited Disney World with my mom and aunt, and we have fun! It’s a foodie adventure, a photographer’s paradise, and I educate many adults who think there is nothing for adults at Disney. You can make the trip romantic, educational or relaxing. With the cool back stage tours, architectural walks and tours plus award-winning restaurants, think Disney the next time you plan your vacation without kids.
An avid Disney fan since childhood, Maleah has been going to Disney World since 1991. Maleah can be found at www.chachatea.net.
Roger and Brenda from Going Back to Disney offer three great reasons to go to Disney without a child in tow.
“Our first visit to Walt Disney World as a couple was on our honeymoon. Since then, we have been about a dozen times in ten years. We have no grandkids, so all of our trips have been “Kid Free,” which allows us to indulge in Friends, Flowers, and Fun.
We meet new friends at Disney World. Sometimes it’s another Kid Free Couple, other times it’s a family with children. Either way, we enjoy transforming wait time into friend time. We are festooned with our Disney pins (Brenda has Tinker Bell, Roger has Goofy) and always carry a bag of pins to trade. We like to offer pins to the kids we meet to help boost their collections. We frequently buy pins on e-Bay to use just to trade and give away. And one day we met a couple who lived just a few miles from our house, so we’ve gotten together for dinner and relived our Disney fun!
Standing in the midst of the many viola flowerbeds is intoxicating to Brenda. She would love to have a small portion of the Disney Flower budget for her own garden. From the 100+ topiaries to the floating gardens to the presentations by HGTV personalities, it truly is magical.
Watching 100’s of species of butterflies is incredible. Being “Kid Free” means we can stay at any display for as long as we want, and change directions whenever it suits our fancy. And how much fun is it to see the new “toys” in the gardening world the vendors have to offer.
Waiting in line for fun? You bet. We like to wait in line. Really! We get to the early park opening an hour before the early opening, and we wait so we can be near the front of the line. That’s where we meet folks; sometimes new, sometimes “old”—we’re always amazed how many times we run into our new friends at Disney World!”
“We also like to Wait—Watch—Repeat. We love the Voices of Liberty show, and Brenda was even part of the show once. We’ll listen to their beautiful singing and hang around outside for a while. Then we get back into the air-conditioned comfort and sit on a bench to be ready for another performance. We do that three or more times in a row!
While waiting we also search for hidden Mickeys, talk to Cast Members, plan our next move, and enjoy the pre-show.
We’re not sure how much fun meeting strangers, smelling flowers, and waiting in line would be with kids—but it’s a hoot when you’re kids free!”
