Beyond the Parks

Beyond The Parks At Walt Disney World Resort

There’s more to Walt Disney World Resort than just theme park rides and parades. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be Disney Princess mad to have an unforgettable time on holiday here.

In fact, there’s so much to do beyond the parks that you’ll struggle to fit it all into one trip alone. But that’s fine, after all, who needs an excuse to return to Walt Disney World Resort?


You’ll find a whole host of activities such as miniature golf, fishing and water sports; and if you like sports, you’ll love the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Besides sports, there are behind the scenes tours, boat rides, spa facilities and loads more entertainment to keep you occupied for the entire duration of your holiday.

  • Guests enjoy a round of golf at Walt Disney World in Florida

  • Shop ‘til you drop in Disney Springs and Disney’s BoardWalk

  • From self-service snack stops to award-winning fine dining.

  • Relax and unwind with a spa treatment or two.

  • The party doesn’t stop when the sun goes down

  • Get back to nature and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

But two things that Disney does really, really well is shopping and dining. Whether you love nothing more than going on a huge shopping spree or all you’re looking for is somewhere to enjoy excellent food and drink, then you won’t need to look far. Especially with the likes of Disney Springs and Disney BoardWalk right on your doorstep.

Disney Springs

Disney’s Springs is the new after-dark place to go, with its mesmerising entertainment, bustling atmosphere and fantastic restaurants. Previously known as Downtown Disney, the nightlife is split into three elegantly themed neighbourhoods for you to discover. The Landing is where you’ll find delicious seafood and peaceful bars by the waterside. You can then shop for popular brands in the Marketplace and browse unique boutiques in the Town Centre before heading West Side to be entertained by live music, theatre and dance performances.
