5 Ways Adults Can Have Fun at Disney World

Y'all I have been wanting to do this blog post for forever now. I haven't really seen any info on it, so I thought it would be really helpful for those wanting to go to Disney but weary if it would be fun for them. Disclaimer: I am absolutely obsessed with all things Disney. We go to Disney World every year, and took Luca for the first time last year at almost 6 months old. He had a blast, I had a blast, the whole trip was just so much fun as always. 

Today I am going to be telling y'all 5 ways ADULTS can have fun at Disney World. Yes prior to Luca we would go every year, and we had the greatest time ever. So I am going to be shedding some light today as to how in the world we have so much fun.

1. Dressing Up

Yes we dress up. May not be for you but I promise you if you embrace Disney in some sort of way while you are there your inner child will come out. Depending on how many days we are there, depends on how many fun outfits I plan for. The outfits can be anywhere from just t shirts to character inspire skirts etc. I've made some of the t-shirts in the past, had someone make t-shirts for me, and just bought t-shirts off Amazon. I typically starting planning for what characters or themed outfits I want to wear the day after I leave to go back home from Disney! haha! Yes I am that committed. If there is a group of you, it is so fun to do a group themed outfits. You all can choose characters from a Disney movie, or even get matching t shirts made. There is no limit to what you can create as an outfit as long as its modest and you aren't looking exactly like a Disney princess when you walk into the parks. Also when you dress up as certain characters, you can look to see where those characters are for the day, and go take pictures with them. No, children aren't the only ones that do this, adults can too! The characters love it as well. Here are some of our outfits from past Disney World trips. (leaving the outfits with Luca off of this post {even though they are cute} since its only about Adults having fun ;))


Yes do what adults love to do, and drink.. eat.. and enjoy yourself. Disney World actually has some amazing drinks, and their food is pretty dang good too. All the parks serve alcohol except Magic Kingdom. The only place, that I am aware of, that sells alcohol in Magic Kingdom is the Be Our Guest restaurant. Which that restaurant is so amazing inside. Highly recommend eating there for the experience. The food is average there though in my opinion. Also it is a lot cheaper to eat there if you go there for lunch instead of dinner.

This park is mainly designed for adults which is pretty awesome. 11 countries are represented at Epcot. One thing we always try to do is drink around the world. We get a different drink at each country. Spoiler: We have never made it completely around. We usually start way too late, and the park closer. haha! So our goal is to get there early for once in the future. Another awesome thing about Epcot is that the people working in each country is actually from that country. How cool right? Makes it very authentic.

My favorite drink in Epcot is in China:
Mango Gingerita 

Favorite places to eat in Epcot:
Liberty Inn
La Cantina de San Angel 
Tutto Italia Ristorante 

Magic Kingdom
Yes this park is mainly designed for kiddos, but adults can still have fun there as well. As I mentioned earlier, the only restaurant I'm aware of the serves alcohol there is the Be Our Guest restaurant. 

Favorite Drink at Magic Kingdom:
Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen

Favorite Places to eat at Magic Kingdom:
Be Our Guest

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

Hollywood Studios
This park is a blast. They have Toy Story land now, and will have Star Wars land open this fall. So pumped about that! This park use to be geared towards adults, but now they are adding new additions to make it kid friendly as well. 

Favorite Drink at Hollywood Studios 

Minute Maid Frozen Alcoholic Lemonade at Dockside Diner. Dockside Diner has amazing specialty drinks on their menu as well. Such as: Kahlua and Cream Milkshake, Patron Platinum Margiriata, and Blue long island iced tea.

Fairfax Fare also has some good drinks there as well. 

Favorite Place to eat at Hollywood Studios 
Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant. You sit in old timey cars, and it looks like you are at a drive in eating. So cool! Their wings are amazing!

Animal Kingdom
I know some people don't really care for this park, but I love it y'all. And they have some really tasty foods and drinks available which is a big big plus for us adults. ;)

Favorite Drink at Animal Kingdom
Triple Yeti hands down!!!!!!!! 
You can get the triple yeti at Warung Outpost in Asia. 

Favorite Place to eat at Animal Kingdom
Dinobites Snacks.
I actually haven't gotten to eat in Animal Kingdom. 
So give me recommendations of what y'all love there. 

3. Ride Rides

I mean that is pretty much common sense right? But I just wanted to through this in there, but I honestly think Disney World has some of the best rides! I love them all (besides maybe two I won't ride haha)

Hollywood Studios Favorite Rides:

Tower of Terror
Star Tours
Toy Story Mania
Slinky Dash Roller Coaster (still haven't gotten to ride it yet, but it looks like so much fun)

Magic Kingdom:

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Space Mountain
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Buzz Lightyear 


Test Track

Animal Kingdom:

Primeval Whirl
Kilimanjaro Safaris
Avatar Flight of Passage (still have't gotten to ride it yet, but I've heard only good things about it).

Also, I can't  stress this enough... Using fast passes will save you a lot of stress, and allow for you to have a much better time. And be able to ride all of the rides you want to. As soon as you buy your tickets, book your fast passes as soon as possible. If you are staying on Disney property, you can book your fast passes 60 days before arrival (highly recommend doing this). If you are staying off property, you can book fast passes 30 days before arrival. You can get three fast passes a day at one park. So once you finish using those fast passes, you can choose three more. 

4. Use the Park Hopper Option

The park hopper will allow you to visit multiple parks in one day, and go in and out of the parks as much as you want. Depending on the closing times of the parks, depends on which parks we decide to go to that day. So if one park is staying open until midnight, we will go to a park that closes early in the morning, and spend all night at the other park. This would be perfect for Magic Kingdom or Epcot. 


I am not going to go into much detail with this one because I will have another blog post coming out with tips to have a stress free trip to Disney World. But for real y'all plan ahead. We usually start planning a year in advance. Now if you are unable to do that far in advance, or decide to go last minute that is fine too. But before even entering the parks kind of plan out your day. Going with the flow when you get to a park can actually result in a stressful day. You can't really go with the flow because you will be standing in long lines and it can be really crowded. Plan everything from what parks you are going to what day, make dinning reservations, and book your fast passes. Especially make dinning reservations prior because if not you will be waiting hours to be seated at a restaurant.
