Plenty of people give up Disney once they realize there’s a human being inside the Donald Duck costume, but there are a fair number of others who still believe in the magic. Below, you’ll find some tips for grown-ups, as well as grown up–only activities.
- One grown-up activity at Disney theme parks is skipping the fast food to eat at nice restaurants. Explore dining options at Disney’s official site, or in one of the unofficial guides listed in the “Where can I explore Disney travel online?” section of this guide.
- At Disney World, adults can kick back at Paradise Island, the park’s nighttime hot spot in Downtown Disney. Every night features live bands and a New Year’s Eve celebration at midnight, plus frequent comedy acts and a different dance club for every decade from the ’60s through the ’90s.
- Parents visiting Disney with the kids won’t have trouble finding some alone time. At both Disney World and Disneyland, there are childcare providers available day and night. It is recommended that you call ahead of time to reserve childcare (these providers do not have Web sites): at Disney World, try the Fairy Godmothers at 1-407-277-3724; at Disneyland, the Fullerton Childcare Agency is highly regarded, and can be reached at 1-714-528-1640.
- If you’re sure that there is really nothing adult enough at the Disney theme parks that will make you smile, you might still consider checking out some of the options in the “What other kinds of Disney vacations are there?” section of this guide.
