The Ultimate Day for Young Families VIP Tour
Disney Parks Blog has given us a peek into one of the new VIP tours that are being offered in Disney World. The Ultimate Day for Young Families VIP Tour started at the Tomorrowland Terrace in Magic Kingdom was the starting point for the tour.
Throughout the day they experienced lots of fun attractions including Pirates of the Caribbean, Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, and Toy Story Mania. While they were in Hollywood Studios they had lunch at a reserved table (lunch orders are taken at the start of the tour). They ended the tour with front row seats at Festival of the Lion King in Animal Kingdom.
In all, the writer, Russ J. Stacey, said they enjoyed 11 attractions in 3 parks. Plus, they got some fun trivia and information along the way. He also said, despite the name, it’s not just for families with little kids. The tour guide told him that plenty of people take the tour with no kids, just the adults.
The cost of the tour is $299 per person (theme park admission not included), it lasts six to seven hours, and is offered on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Disney for the Big Kids
Yes, Disney is a place that will make you feel like a kid again. However, there are plenty of things for adults to do that don’t have to include kids. Sometimes you need that night out with just the adults and there is nothing wrong with that!
You can head over to the Boardwalk and check out Jellyrolls and Atlantic Dance Hall. If you are not staying at an Epcot resort hotel, you can take a bus to Hollywood Studios and either walk or take the Friendship boat to the Boardwalk. There is no bus from Epcot to Boardwalk Inn, due to it’s close proximity. In order to walk to the Boardwalk from Epcot you would need to walk through Epcot and that means you would need to pay to get into Epcot, just to walk through it. So walking or boating from Hollywood Studios is the best way to get there.
Both Jellyrolls and Atlantic Dance Hall are adults only venues, so that makes them a great option for an adult only night out. Jellyrolls is really cool, because they have dueling pianos! They take requests and, according to Disney’s website, you are encouraged to try to stump the piano players. There is a $10 cover charge for Jellyrolls, so just remember that if you decide to go there.
Atlantic Dance Hall is right down the way from Jellyrolls at the end of the Boardwalk. This is the place to go if you are in the mood to dance. They will either have a live band or a DJ, depending on the night. Either way this is a great place to let loose on the dance floor!
Another dining option at Victoria and Albert’s is The Queen Victoria Room. This room is limited to 4 tables, seating 2 at each table, and has a 10 course menu. The cost, at the time of writing, is $225 per person and they offer wine pairings from $105 per person. It is very expensive, but keep in mind all the food you get and you are in a private room with only four tables.
For all three of the dining experiences at Victoria and Albert’s there is a dress code. Men must wear dinner jackets, dress pants or slacks, and shoes, but ties are optional. Women may wear a cocktail dress, nice dress, pants suit, or a skirt with a blouse. Things that are not permitted: jeans, shorts, capri pants, sandals, flip-flop, and tennis shoes. I would also keep in mind that this restaurant, for all three dining experiences, books up quickly. If you know you want to have dinner here, then I would try for reservations at the 180 day mark, especially for the Queen Victoria Room and the Chef’s Table Dinner.
If golf is your thing, then you are in luck! Disney World has three golf courses with championship layouts that play to a par of 72. The three golf courses are Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course, Disney’s Palm Golf Course, and Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course. If you are just starting out they have a golf course for less skilled golfers too,Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course.
Disney also does a lot of tours that are adult only. For instance, the Keys to the Kingdom Tour in Magic Kingdom, which is a 5 hour behind the scenes walking tour, is an adults only tour. There is also an adults only Segway tour at Fort Wilderness called Wilderness Back Trail Adventure. These are just a couple of examples, but there are many other tours available the are geared to adults. For a complete list of tours click here.
So, if you have a friend that asks why you would want to go to Disney, because “Disney is for kids”…just send them some of these links. There are plenty of things for adults to do in Disney World. It’s great to feel like a kid, but it’s nice to know Disney covers the adults when we want to feel like adults 🙂
