In November I was really excited to take an adults only trip with my favorite Dole Whippies to Walt Disney World. You would not believe the amount of people who were incredulous about the idea of going to Disney without my child, with other adults! But let me tell you, it was an amazing choice! Here are some great reasons why you should take a kid free trip to Walt Disney World.
5. No sharing! Unless you want to! You know how your child will order ice cream that is blue just because it is blue, and you order a delicious mint chocolate chip scoop? Except yours always looks more appealing once it shows up. Well no sharing required, you get that Dole Whip to your self!
4. Explore the World Showcase! This is one place it is hard to appreciate with kids who are just looking for their next snack or attraction. You can really soak in the atmosphere of the different pavilions and experience all there is to do at your own pace!
3.You don’t have to get the light up toy. You know, the kind on the cart that comes out at dusk and they are so bright and flashy and your kid MUST have it and you have to figure out how to get it home. Not this time! You can stroll smugly by and keep your wallet in your purse or pocket.
2. Sleep in and stay out late. Both of these things can be very hard to accomplish with kids of any ages, they get tired or grumpy or both. Well this happens with adults too, but it is generally a little easier to handle. You can take advantage of nighttime extra magic hours and enjoy really low crowds. No reason to get up early with the little ones, just close the curtain and hit snooze!
1. Freedom, sweet freedom. You get to choose which attraction you want to do, which character to meet. You can push lunch back by and hour and not have too many melt downs. Or maybe you decide to linger over a drink or dessert. Or you can try on all the tiaras in the shop in Germany and accomplish nothing else that day. But that is ok because you do what you want.
I can’t recommend enough how much fun it is to feel like a kid at Walt Disney World by going without kids. It is good for the soul and trust me, you will be a better parent for it when you return home!
