Crafting AT Your Walt Disney World ResortHi Everyone! I hit the Parks pretty hard when I’m at Walt Disney World®, but, I also love just kicking back and relaxing at my Resort. And one thing I like to do there is…crafting. Did you know that the Walt Disney World® Resorts offer a wide variety of resort-themed specific crafts in their monthly activities calendars? You know, the ones they stuff in your folders at check-in? This is a great way to take time out from the Parks and take home another unique souvenir from your trip.

Here are just some of the craft offerings at a few of the Walt Disney World® Resorts:

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
Location: Various locations around Jambo House and Kidani Village (check Resort for details):

  • African Face Painting
  • African-Inspired Jewelry
  • Ceramics
  • Cookie Decorating (shown in my photo)
  • Inkoma Animal Stamps
  • Medallion Rubbing
  • T-Shirts

These are a part of the amazing Cultural Immersion, Culinary Exploration, and Animal and Wildlife Discovery programs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

  • Draw Your Favorite Disney Characters (Location: children’s area next to the front desk)
  • Rotating Arts and Crafts (Location: The Big Blue Pool)

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground

There are also rotating arts and crafts scheduled at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, but so far, I haven’t seen too many crafts scheduled at the Moderate Resorts, so please ask the front desk at check-in.

I really enjoy these resort-themed specific crafts while I’m taking a relaxing break from the Parks. I hope you will, too. Stay tuned for more ways to craft unique souvenirs while on your Disney trips.

Enjoy your day, and craft away!

p.s. I highly recommend the Cookie Decorating at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge…even as an adult. Those cookies are delicious, too!

    I certainly was not aware of crafting being available at WDW, so cool. I’m with you on the cookie decorating Fran. I just don’t know if my animal cookie would survive the decorating process with out missing a limb or two by the time I’m finished if you know what I mean.

    Catcha later and have an awesome day!!

    I don’t know if they still do it or not, but they used to teach children how to make leis each afternoon in the Great Ceremonial House at the Polynesian Resort.

  4. Fran Cassano says:

    Thanks, Eddie! Mine didn’t last long either! Hope you are having an awesome week :)

    Thanks, Ruby : )

    Kendall, the leis have been a very popular craft at the Poly, but their last two activities calendars didn’t have it listed…

    So, readers, do keep asking the front desk at your Resort for information on the crafts they currently offer.
