Days at Walt Disney World don’t necessarily have to be spent at parks riding the attractions, cooling off at one of the water parks, or shopping at Disney Springs. There is plenty to fill your days with, without even leaving your Disney resort. One such thing you can do is check out your resort’s community hall.
Community Halls are found at a handful of Disney Vacation Club resorts. At a community hall, cast members are on hand to guide crafts and games. There’s structured and planned activities, as well as toys, board games and video games to be played at leisure.
There are some great things kids can create to take home with them as a souvenir of their vacation. Some of these require no extra cost, whereas others take more time and have a fee to cover the cost of the materials.
Many community halls have foosball tables, pin pong, and air hockey tables. These community halls also have DVDs that you can rent and take back to your room. It’s a wonderful place to spend some quiet time during a non-park day or on a rainy day. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Generally the Community Hall will open from 9am until 10pm.
There are currently 5 community halls found around Walt Disney World property and they are at the following locations:
Old Key West Resort. Disney Springs Resort Area.
Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village. Animal Kingdom Resort Area.
Even if you’re not staying at one of these resorts, check it out while wandering around the resort on a non-park day. Play an epic game of monopoly or attack a tough puzzle. We spent some time at the Saratoga Springs Community Hall during our last vacation. Both kids coloured magnets that are still on our fridge. We also enjoyed our Movie Under the Stars here, as the temperatures were very low. Spend some one on one time together as a family during a very hectic Disney vacation. Happy Planning, Friends.
