Why Disney World is Made For Adults, Not Children!

When people think about taking a trip to Disney World it is a common misconception that Disney is aimed primarily at kids and families. But this is WRONG!

There is so much for adults to experience, including adult-only activities, plus adults get to feel the full benefits of everything on offer and enjoy true escapism!

Here are the reasons why Disney World is made for adults and not for children!

Adults Can Ride All The Rides!

Who are the only people are Disney World who can enjoy everything on offer? Adults!

The height requirements for rides typically don't apply to adults visiting Disney World, which means every single ride is available to enjoy!

Whether you are a thrill-seeker, a water ride enthusiast or prefer a gentle but highly themed attraction there is something for you at Disney World!

Resorts Tailored To Adults

Disney World has 31 resorts, suitable for all budgets and types of visitors. Each resort has its own incredible theming and atmosphere, including many with a more adult vibe.

Value resorts do tend to be more family-friendly, with bold theming and the most Disney decor throughout. But these resorts can be great for groups of friends visiting Disney for their fun feel and budget-friendly price!

Moderate resorts have more facilities than value resorts and are a great mix of everything you need but with laid-back vibes. The most adult-friendly moderate resorts are Port Orleans French Quarter, Port Orleans Riverside and Coronado Springs. These resorts are great for couples and adult-only visitors for their relaxing atmosphere and grown-up feel.

In general Deluxe Disney Resorts have a more adult atmosphere and they also have the most amount of facilities, many of which are perfect for adults to enjoy, such as bars, spas, sports facilities and boat rentals. All of the Deluxe Resorts are great for adults, you just have to select which theme you would most enjoy!

Some of the types of resorts you can choose from including Animal Kingdom Lodge which has a stunning savannah where you can see wild animals roam, the Grand Floridian Resort which has an olde-worlde charm to it and it just one monorail stop for Magic Kingdom and Beach Club Resort which has a New England theme and is right in the heart of Disney's BoardWalk, full of restaurants and entertainment and close to both EPCOT and Hollywood Studios!

Fine Dining Restaurants

Disney World has over 200 restaurants on its property so you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to delicious food!

Many people think of fast food when visiting theme parks but Disney World has an amazing range of table service restaurants, including many fine dining establishments, serving a wide range of cuisines in incredible settings. The gourmet food, elegant decor and classy atmosphere make these restaurants perfect for adults!

Victoria & Albert's at the Grand Floridian Resort has been voted one of the best restaurants in the entire United States! This restaurant offers exceptional service, foods made from the best quality ingredients and an experience to never forget! A 10 course tasting menu, which updates seasonally, can be paired with wine courses. If you have any dietary requirements the courses will be tailored to you specifically!

Some other amazing fine dining restaurants at Disney World include:

  • California Grill

  • Topolino's Terrace

  • Yachtsman Steakhouse

  • Narcoossee's

  • Citricos


In the US only people aged 21 and over are allowed to enter bars meaning they are made for adults only!

Disney World has lots of great bars to visit, including many with awesome theming! Visit Trader Sam's Grog Grotto at the Polynesian Village Resort, the Enchanted Rose at the Grand Floridian Resort and Scat Cat's at Port Orleans French Quarter (and be sure to see Yeeha Bob in action!) to enjoy amazing drinks as well as incredible ambiance and theming!

Oga's Cantina in Hollywood Studios is another great bar but inside the parks and sells alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages which are spectacular to look at and enjoy! Oga's is slightly different as it does allow all ages in but many of the drinks are tailored towards adults so this is the perfect spot inside the Disney Parks to relax and unwind and enjoy the out-of-this-world Star Wars theming!
