As much fun as the hustle and bustle of a Walt Disney World theme park can be, sometimes it is nice to take a little break from the visual and auditory barrage. I’m the type of Walt Disney World Guest who is at the park prior to rope drop, runs hard until noon, and then needs a few hours break to recharge my batteries before returning until close. Instead of always returning to my home resort for a nap, I like to take advantage of my down time to leisurely explore the surrounding Walt Disney World Resorts.

There’s are so many things to do and see at the resorts that are definitely worth taking the time to explore. Each resort offers a unique story complimented by architectural and design details. Many of the resorts also offer extra activities such as arcades, walking trails, boat rentals, bike rentals, spas, and other fun experiences. Plus, there are many scenic locales in the resorts where you can get off your feet and relax. Everyone has their own favorites, but for me some of personal favorite resorts to walk around are Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground (tons of stuff to do here!) and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. I also try to make a point to head over to for a visit to the spa and Afternoon Tea at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

So next time you’re feeling a little weary on your feet while at one of Walt Disney World’s theme parks, don’t automatically board the bus back to your resort! Take the opportunity to travel to a new resort and enjoy the adventure.
