Yes, as strange as it may seem, adults (sans children) can have a fantastic Vacation at Disney too! The Disney Company prides itself in providing experiences for all ages, and in my humble opinion, they do a phenomenal job.
In this post, I will highlight a few hotels and restaurants that you can enjoy on your own adults only adventure.
So... you need to ask yourself, what do I want to experience and enjoy on my adults only trip to Disney?
Let's Get Started!
Disney has a variety of beautifully themed hotels and the newest is Disney's Riviera Resort set to the theme of the French Riviera. This hotel boasts the rooftop restaurant, Topolino's Terrace that features French and Italian Cuisine and has views of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. You can easily get to both theme parks via the new Skyliner and the resort is breathtaking!
Another resort that stands out as a fantastic location for an adult only vacation is Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa located on the Monorail Loop near Magic Kingdom and the Seven Seas Lagoon. This lovely resort reminds you of the turn of the 20th century in its style and design. The lobby has a live orchestra that plays a variety of music. You can enjoy nightly fireworks and the water parade from the beach at this resort. It also houses the Senses Spa for those of you that want to indulge in rejuvenation and relaxation. This spa offers a number of treatments for both men and woman and it is one of my favorite locations when I am at Disney.
If you are looking for something that is more budget friendly, then I would highly suggest Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter. This resort is a hidden jewel. It is a smaller resort that makes you feel like you are in the Quarter in New Orleans. The gas lamps, wrought iron balconies, and beautiful magnolia trees transport you to an place where Mardi Grad is always happening and Jazz is the music of choice.
Need a beignet fix??? No problem! The French Quarter offers daily fresh beignets with a little Disney Magic and different flavors! They also have beignets just for us adults called Boozy Beignets with Baileys, Kahlua, or RumChata.
Disney offers a variety of restaurants and nightlife venues that can enhance any adults-only trip to Disney! I would like to highlight a few of my favorites!
First, let me take you to Canada in Epcot so that we can visit Le Cellier Steakhouse. You will go down into a wine cellar to enjoy a filet mignon with white truffle butter and mushroom risotto and tasty seafood specialties. You will be able to choose from a variety of wines and beers and the Cheddar Beer Cheese soup is lovely! The atmosphere is cozy and intimate and perfect for adults!
The next restaurant I really enjoy eating at is California Grill at the top of Disney's Contemporary Resort. If you time it just right, you can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the patio of the restaurant as they pipe in the music to go with the show. This restaurant features global recipes that change with the seasons and is a great place for foodies. The seafood is tender and appetizing. The stone fired pizzas offer fresh ingredients that pair well with a delightful beverage from the spirits menu. They have re-imagined Mac and Cheese that is delightful.
The last place I would like to highlight in this post is a whimsical bar at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Trader Sam's Grog Grotto is a tropical tiki bar that offers you a unique South Seas experience through food and beverage. In the Grog Grotto, you can enjoy specialty drinks such as the Uh-Oa! (Myer's Original Dark Rum, Bacardi Superior Rum, Orange, Passion Fruit, Guave, Pinapple, and Grapefruit Juices, Falernum, Cinnamon, and fresh Lime Juice) that can be shared with two guests or my favorite, the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum (Pyrat XO Reserve Rum, Creme of Coconut, and Pinapple and Orange Juices dusted with Cinnamon and Nutmeg). Some drinks come with an interactive experience and the staff are great fun. If you like the corny joke on the Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom, then you need to go check Trader Sam's Grog Grotto out!
