You could be forgiven for thinking that a trip to Orlando's attractions is best enjoyed with the children in tow. But when the kids grow up, you get to enjoy a whole new side of Orlando, with its luxury hotels, fine dining options and – best of all – an opportunity to revisit all those rides the children didn’t want to go on! Read our guide on the best things to do for adults in Orlando...
1. Luxury Hotels
Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort is a perfect example of the type of luxury you can enjoy within just 15 minutes of Epcot park. There’s an adults only pool area where you can chill out for a spot of peace and quiet or relax in the on-site health club. Fine wine and dining is also to be enjoyed at the signature steak restaurant Yachtsman Steakhouse, where oak grilled steaks are the highlight. Bus transportation is available to the nearby Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando resort is just 20 minutes away by car, so you’re still in the heart of the action.
2. White knuckle rides
Walt Disney World Resort might surprise you when it comes to those nail biting moments; some of these rides are definitely not for children! Space Mountain at the Magic Kingdom plunges you into the inky blackness of space, taking you on a whirling and turning journey through the universe at break neck speeds. Meanwhile, the Aerosmith Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios speeds you along a fright-filled journey of corkscrews and loops. Over at Universal Orlando resort, Doctor Doom’s Fearfall will certainly separate the men from the boys.
More than 170 golf courses should be enough to keep you entertained, right? Even the most seasoned golfers will find courses to challenge them within the Walt Disney World Resort, meaning you don’t have to stray too far from the hotel or the parks to enjoy secluded, exclusive golf resorts with a few Disney quirks!
4. Fine Dining
Benefit from the luxury of time and spend a leisurely long lunch at Victoria & Albert’s, Walt Disney World’s most exclusive restaurant. Guests can enjoy a 7 course meal with mains featuring veal and roasted duck rounded off with a dessert of roasted white chocolate gelato with candied fig. Of course, if your tastes are decidedly less luxurious, there’s always a Duff beer at Moe’s Tavern in Universial Studios to be enjoyed (adults only!).
5. Grand 1 Yachting Experience
Book the Grand 1 Yacht for a private romantic dining experience complete with a butler to cater to your every need. Everything including a captain and a deck hand is included, so all you need do is sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. The best time to hire the yacht is during the world famous Wishes fireworks display over the Magic Kingdom, where you’ll enjoy a prime spot on the water away from the crowds to watch the gorgrous firework display.
