Plenty of Outdoor Fun at Awaits at Walt Disney World Resorts


Whether they want to stay in shape or just have some fun away from the parks, guests of the Walt Disney World Resorts will find there is more than enough to keep them occupied outdoors. From tennis to horseback riding and waterskiing, the range of options is unbelievable.

If you are into sports, you will be more than happy with the tennis and volleyball facilities available at multiple Disney resorts. Better yet, you won’t have to bring a thing – equipment is available for checkout. And if you want to brush up on your tennis game, you can even get instruction from a pro at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Perhaps you’re more of an exerciser than an athlete – several of the Walt Disney World Resorts offer jogging trails with varied scenery and terrain. You can jog through wilderness, around lagoons, or past scenic shores, all at your own pace. Bikes are also available for rental, with multiple winding paths, waterfront walkways, and scenic trails for bikers to enjoy. You can even make the outing a family event with four-passenger surreys. Don’t bother bringing a helmet – Disney has got you covered.

Need the kids to burn off some extra energy from that gigantic mountain of cotton candy they ate at the park? Plenty of Disney resorts offer playgrounds, some open specific hours and some open 24 hours a day. Children can run, climb, slide, and swing to their hearts’ content, all in a fun, safe environment filled with imaginative sculptures and creative play areas.

There’s also plenty of opportunity for family bonding with outdoor activities such as miniature golf and horseback riding. Experience Disney’s two miniature golf courses, Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course and Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course, for some fun through these musical and interactive courses that will have the whole family smiling. Or, ride a horse or pony, or horse-drawn carriage through Central Florida’s wilderness.

Finally, guests of the resort should be sure to take advantage of all the water activities available. Guests can reel in some fish, sun, and fun with two-hour excursions in the lakes of the Walt Disney World Resort. Up to five guests can trek out with Disney’s experienced guides, who also provide rods and reels, tackle, artificial and live bait, beverages, and a one-year BASS membership. Specialized cruises are also available for parties, as are a fleet of motorized and non-motorized watercraft for rental. Or try your hand at wakeboarding, waterskiing, parasailing, or tubing – there’s no end to all the fun in the water.

So no matter what you choose, there’s plenty of fun and adventure to be had in the outdoors of the Walt Disney Resorts. And getting started is easy when you book your discount Disney tickets at DWTickets.com – it’s deciding which activity to do after a day at the park that’s hard!
