Exciting Disney World Activities Outside of the Parks

Have you ever wondered what there is to do around The Walt Disney World Resort beside visit the Theme Parks or shop at Disney Springs? There are so many great recreational activities right on property. If your family is ready to step outside the parks and see what other fun excursions are offered, check out this list of ideas: Golf Tee off at one of Disney’s three award winning, Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole courses - Disney’s Lake Buena Vista, Disney’s Magnolia, or Disney’s Palm Golf Course. Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course is a 9-hole course which is great for families or beginners. Golf instructional clinics are available for both adults and juniors, as well as personal lessons with a PGA qualified instructor.  The use of a golf cart is included in your greens fee for the 3 large courses. Oak Trail is a walking course. Want to get a quick game in on the back 9 before heading to the Parks? Reserve the "Sunrise 9" option, and breakfast is included! Reservations: 407

They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
