10 Ways to Enjoy Disney World Without Kids

While Disney World is the mecca of family vacations, this destination is also a great spot for couples to enjoy great amenities, recreation, fine dining, nightlife and an assortment of other activities geared to draw grownups. While you might be surrounded in some cases by children and families, there is ample opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy each other- reason enough to leave the kids with the babysitter and pack your bags for some grown up time- Disney style, of course.

10. Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Who wouldn’t love to eat and drink their way around the world? With the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, that is precisely what you get to do (on a smaller scale of course). This globally-themed food and wine extravaganza has been running for 20 years in the fall, and is a foodie’s delight. There are cooking and beverage seminars (Beverage Boot Camp, Mixology and Cheese Seminars), tasting events, celebrity chefs and dining packages. There are over 30 global marketplaces that let you wander and sample at your leisure. If you want a little guidance in your dining, consider participating in one of the Food and Beverage pairings where you sample regional food matched with local beers and wine.  For a little after-meal digestion, wander around and listen in at one of the many live concerts that run throughout the Festival.

9. Grand Floridian Resort and Spa

Although there are a host of luxurious accommodations onsite at Disney, the Grand Floridian Resort is well-tailored for the ultimate adult getaway at Disney. Disney’s opulent Senses Spa is located here and has a long menu of services available (couples massages too!). Dining options are plentiful, with Victoria & Albert’s romantic dining room and the Grandview Tea Room- where you can relish in a relaxing afternoon cup of tea.
