Hubbs and I are back from our trip to Disney! ICYMI, we’ve spent the last few days skipping around Disney World. It was a blast, and quite honestly I am devastated to be home… going a job where my title is not “Her Royal Highness” and my hair doesn’t look magically flawless is really a bit fat bummer.
Anyways, I have lots of fun Disney World posts coming your way over the next couple weeks!
Hubbs and I don’t have kids, so during our trip we were able to experience activities that were perfect for adults. Disney has really pulled out all the stops to make sure everyone of all ages has a fabulous time. We really had a blast! So today’s post is five activities that are perfect for adults at Disney World.
1. Have a Millennial Pink Celebration Toast at Amorette’s Patisserie
Soooo I’m not going to say this was my first priority when we landed in Orlando, but I’m also not prepared to deny it. This is the most beautiful drink. It’s lovely pink sparkling wine with glittery rose gold white chocolate Mickey ears on top. Amorette’s Patisserie is located in Disney Springs and is the cutest stop too. It has BEAUTIFUL pastries, cakes, and sandwiches. Totally worth a stop for one of these gorgeous drinks and a tasty treat.
2. Star Wars: Secrets of The Empire by The VOID
THIS. WAS. THE. COOLEST. THING. I have zero point zero zero virtual reality experience (like never even tested the goggle thing at a mall kiosk), but Stephen does and he said it was amazing too. I also don’t watch Star Wars, and this was still one of the highlights for me of the trip. You get completely suited up and are 100% immersed in the experience. You are a rebel fighter disguised as a Storm Trooper and go on a secret mission. Ok but like YOU ARE a Storm Trooper. If you lift up your hand, it’s no longer your human hand, it’s a Storm Trooper hand. You look at the person you came with and their human form is no longer there, it’s a Storm Trooper.
The coolest thing is that the VR experience is mixed with real elements. So at one point you have to crack a code, but you actually have to push buttons. Then you have to steal a gun, but you reach out and it’s a real gun. I would seriously go down to Orlando again just for this. It’s AMAZING!!!!! I think it would be a little scary for kids, but for teenagers and adults this is a must-see! You can find this is Disney Springs as well!
3. Dockside Margaritas
This is a fabulous pre-dinner stop. We went after the Star Wars Virtual Reality and before dinner. These margaritas are delicious and the shack overlooks the water and volcano at Rain Forest Café. Stephen had the Orange Grove Rum Runner Margarita and I had the watermelon margarita and they were both unbelievably tasty. Also, you can listen to live music late in the afternoon. It’s so fun. I’m actually sad we didn’t go for another round of margaritas. You can find Dockside Margaritas in Disney Springs.
4. House of Blues
So this isn’t the only House of Blues in the world, but they have a great location in Disney Springs! This restaurant has great Cajun food, a patio bar with signature drinks and outdoor live music, inside live music and a different specialty drink menu. I had the Green Gator at the outdoor bar and a Bumble Bee with dinner. I also highly recommend the Voodoo Shrimp appetizer! It was SO delicious.
5. The Edison
The Edison is a super fun gothic-style speak easy type bar. After hours it turns into an adults only cabaret. The bar features live musicians, flapper dancers, contortionists, aerialists, and a DJ. We went during some kind of local swing dancing event, so it WAS packed. So I would recommend calling ahead to see what’s going on that night, but regardless it was awesome. Such a fun bar and atmosphere!
