Taking a rest day at Walt Disney World is essential

Lounge by the pool or beach

All of Disney World’s resort hotels have pools for registered guests. There’s usually a big themed pool, and some have smaller quiet pools as well.

Visit a water park

Disney World has two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Yes parks, but their pace is very different from theme parks.

Go fishing

Guests can take guided bass fishing excursions on Bay Lake or Seven Seas Lagoon or try dockside fishing at Port Orleans - Riverside and Fort Wilderness.

Play a round of golf

Disney World has two fully themed miniature golf courses and three 18-hole championship greens. 

Enjoy the outdoor

You don’t have to stay at Fort Wilderness to take part in many of its activities, though many involve fees, like archery, fishing, pony and horseback rides, carriage and wagon rides, and bike, canoe and kayak rentals. 

Souvenir shop at Disney Spring

Disney Springs is home to the largest Disney merchandise store in the world, World of Disney, and host of other shops, restaurants and entertainment.

Resort hop

Many guests like to visit each resort along either the Monorail loop or Skyliner route for the equivalent of a pub or snack 

Watch the Electrical Water Pageant

The Electrical Water Pageant can be seen from the Contemporary, Fort Wilderness, Grand Floridian, Polynesian Village and Wilderness Lodge.
