Is there anything else that I don't know about?

My husband and I are taking an anniversary trip to Disney (all theme and water parks) the first week in May. I have made a couple dining reservations and have figured out a couple of different things that we want to do.

My question is, other than the obvious stuff and Google-able activities, what else is there that we could do? I feel like I keep getting the same stuff from every website I visit. I need a little help please! :]

Hi Olivia_t76,

It all depends on what are your likes, how many days will you be at WDW? Are you staying at one of the Disney resorts?

btw, wrt dinning reservations, the sky is the limit. There are fine/elegant restaurants that we can recommend, to the more down to earth and casuals.

How about dancing, Pleasure Island clubs, Cirque du Soleil, etc. You guys enjoy horseback riding, fishing, or boating, where do you want us to start?

If there are specific restaurants that you want to eat at I suggest you make your reservations ASAP. They go really quickly and you don't want to miss out on anything.

Along with what has been said already, have you ever been to WDW before? If not your gonna need a whole lot of time just getting acquainted with the parks, let alone doing anything "extra" . Have you checked Disney's recreation page:

We love the specialty cruises for the fireworks, Wishes especially. If you like you can rent the water sprites at the Poly, Grand Floridian , or Contemporary resorts and just scoot around Seven Seas Lagoon & Bay Lake. You can Doo some resort hopping and check out the other resorts, do a safari trek, go on. Keys to the Kingdom tour or the behind the scenes train tour. I'm not into golfing but I hear they have excellent courses. There is just so much to do and so little time to do it!

And by the way welcome to WDWForGrownups!

Take a look at the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party.

Reservations can be tricky to get, but it's so very civilized. Coffee and a great array of desserts in a plaza in front of the Castle. You have a SEAT for Wishes (that's the Magic Kingdom's fireworks) with no jostling for a place.


August 2008 and August 2009: Polynesian. August 2012: Beach Club. We're returning to the Beach Club in July/August 2014.

Jellyrolls is a fun night out. Dueling panios that take your request, plus popcorn.

Hi Olivia! So nice to have you join us on the forums. What sort of things do you and your husband enjoy? Are you ride people? Foodies? Recreational Shoppers? You you enjoy education tours or more physical recreation? Walt Disney World really does offer a little something for everyone and each trip can be customized to your interests.

When my husband and I travel without the kids our trips are usually all about Epcot's World Showcase, with lots of shopping and fine dinning.

Where will you be staying while you're there? If you can tell us a little more about what you like to do, we can better point you in the right direction.
