Trips to Walt Disney World are full of park days. Riding attractions, watching stage shows, meeting characters and eating delicious food. It can be over scheduled and exhausting. Which is why one day that doesn’t involve visiting the parks can be an important part of your vacation. There’s so much you can still do without heading to the parks. You can swim at your resort’s pool, shop at Disney Springs, eat at your resort’s restaurant. If you’re visiting with kids 8 and under, your littles may enjoy spending some time at a resort playground. Not every resort has a playground so take a look at this list of resorts that do.
Old Key West*
Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House*
Port Orleans – Riverside
Port Orleans – French Quarter
Fort Wilderness Resort*
*These resorts have more than one playground located on their resort property.
If you’re staying at a resort that has a neighbouring resort than you can certainly head over to the resorts to check out theirs. These playgrounds are really most suitable for kids 3 to 7. They all have slides. Some have rock walls to climb, rope ladders, musical elements. Surprisingly, most of the Deluxe resorts don’t have playgrounds. I certainly wouldn’t use these playgrounds as a deciding factor when you’re picking your resort, but it’s certainly an added element if you’re planning on spending time at your resort with younger visitors.
We’ve spent at hours at some of these playgrounds. They’re a great way to pass time while waiting for dining reservations. Killing time while you’re waiting for your room to be ready. Let the kids burn off some energy on a cooler day. Be sure to check your resorts map when you arrive so you don’t miss out on your resort’s playground.
