Rest and Relaxation at Walt Disney World: Part Two
It’s time to change the way we look at Walt Disney World. Gone are the days of long lines and crowded pathways. Today, we are shinning a light on the finer things in vacation-life.
Last week we uncovered Rest and Relaxation at Walt Disney World: Part One.
Here is a list of locations where you can find a bit of rest and relaxation at Walt Disney World… both inside and out of the parks!
Ready… set… CHILL!
Is there anything better than a spa day? How about a spa day in the most magical place on earth? You may not know – but Disney is home to several full-service luxury spas and salons, including Disney’s Saratoga Springs, Disney’s Grand Floridan, Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Dolphin Resort, and Disney’s Old Key West Resort.
Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe
Looking for a shady spot to rest and recharge. Make your way to Liberty Square’s Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe. Calm, cool, and extremely festive – this holiday hotspot is the hidden gem of Magic Kingdom.
Nomad Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
In the mood for fine fare, colorful cuisine, lively libations, and spirited spirts? Animal Kingdom’s Nomad Lounge is the place to be! One of the most enticing things about Nomad Lounge is its world-traveler theme and cool air-conditioned environment. And unlike most quick turnaround restaurants in Disney World – there is no rush at the Noman Lounge.
EPCOT is one of the most relaxing parks in Walt Disney World. However, not all spots are created equal. Perhaps the most chill place in the entire park is inside the iconic geodesic dome itself – Space Mountain. This slow-moving dark ride is much akin to Carousel of Progress and clocks in at 15.
Movies Under the Stars
We dare you to do this next one! Next time you are at the parks, take the night off and just enough your resort for Movies Under the Stars! Fun and family-friendly, the outdoor blockbuster feature may seem simple. But it is the perfect slow to your busy trip.
Disney Springs is the big brother to The Boardwalk. Tons of shopping, dining, and entertainment abound in this complex, including a 24-screen, dine-in theatre, bowling alley, cigar bar, and more! And the best part – it’s completely free to enter!
7. Tower of Terror
Now, this may seem a bit surprising – but in Disney World’s third gate – Tower of Terror is one of the calmest attractions in the entire park. Well, maybe not the attraction itself – but the exit of the attraction! When you get off the ride, turn right and head over to the brick ledge. You’ll be right between Beauty and the Beast, Tower of Terror, and Rock-n-Rollercoaster. Just grab a cup of coffee from the cart and hang around for some people watching.
And there you have it, Part Two of our Rest and Relaxation at Walt Disney World. Stay tuned for Part Three! And remember, there is no better time than NOW to book a Walt Disney World vacation with one of out Traveling Mouse vacation specialist!
