The Best Way To Do Disney – Adult Style

What’s the first thing you think of when someone says the word Disney?  Screaming children?  Screaming parents?  Bruised calves from getting run into by strollers?

Damn strollers...

Damn strollers…

One of the things that keeps me going back again and again is the ability to do a “kid-free as possible” Disney.  Want to know how?  I could tell you but then I’d have to, well, you know.  Okay, not really, but these are closely guarded grown-up secrets.  Don’t tell anyone else, okay?

Don't tell ANYBODY!

Don’t tell ANYBODY!

Pay attention now, ’cause I’m only going to say this once.  Unless I have another blonde moment and forget.  Which happens a lot.  Really.  A LOT.  (hubby snickers in the background)…

adult Disney

Keep in mind, this is just MY idea of doing Disney adult style.  I deny any knowledge of shenanigans you may encounter, nor am I available for bail money.

1.  Drinking around the world in Epcot – probably one of the most common shenanigan-making schemes for the over-sized Disney kid.  I can’t even count the amount of customized t-shirts I’ve seen boasting of said endeavors.  Of course, by the time most of these braggarts have reached Africa, they’re usually pretty much in a permanent face plant position.

Wha???  I can make it to Germany.....

Wha??? I can make it to Germany…..

2.  Getting the last available Fast Passes for the day – or just waiting until you see a monumental breakdown of a parent’s sanity while waiting in line for Space Mountain.  Then striking while the tempers are hot.  But tread carefully my friends, as that Everestal breakdown, (like what I did there?  Yeah, impressed myself too.) could quickly turn its fiery flames in your completely innocent direction.

I don't wanna go on Space Mountain! Suck it up Dad!

“I don’t wanna go on Space Mountain!
Suck it up Dad!”

3.  Make dinner ressies at a restaurant where no parent in their right mind would bring a kid – Victoria and Albert’s anyone?


I’ll have the escargot followed by the Beluga caviar, accompanied by a bottle of the 2009 Chateau Margaux. And a side of chocolate milk.

4.  Search out the little hidden corners – you never know what you may stumble across.  Like this hidden gem at the Boardwalk Inn.



5.  And what may be my personal favorite – casually, (and loudly), mentioning how there’s a free annual pass giveaway contest in the farthest remote corner of the hotel, thereby leading to your pick of best pool chairs, seats in the hot tub, or uninterrupted poolside bar service.  Not that I’ve EVER done anything even remotely as unDisney-spirited as this.  Not once.  Ever.  Swear.

Where'd everybody go??

Where’d everybody go??

I’m sure there’s plenty more you could come up with to make your next Disney trip more adult-oriented.  Feel free to add them to the list!  There’s just one requirement, which I’m sure you can figure out without too much trouble. #shenanigans


Enjoy the ride.

What do you do to make your Disney trips more adult-like?  Does it include shenanigans?  Or security being called?  Would you like it to??

  1. My sis is a champ at drinking her way around the world (with no faceplanting involved!)…yeah, that’s a tough standard to live up to as her younger sibling. Also, I find that if you MUST do Magic Kindgom, the later the better. I pretty much try and save it for after dark (plus Thunder mountain is better at night).

    And if only Victoria and Albert’s didn’t cost my soul to eat at lol

  2. We leave in two weeks! I am so excited. How do you get fast passes? I might go ahead and try that. I haven’t been there since I was 12….so basically back when the dinosaur ride used actual real dinosaurs.

Please let me know what you think!
