Why You Want to Experience Disney WITHOUT Your Kids

Her eyes light up with wonder and you can hear an audible gasp as your daughter has her first glimpse of Cinderella’s castle. It is an incredible moment. Yes, vacationing with your kids at Disney is magical. (Even if tantrums come along in the package.)

But experiencing Disney without kids is another kind of fabulous you don’t want to miss.

Once upon a time, before I had stepped a foot into Walt Disney World, I thought vacationing at Disney Parks” would be something I would do for my kids. I honestly thought it would be all for them and while I pushed a stroller from attraction to attraction, I would just be fantasizing about a vacation at the beach with a good book.

Oh I was wrong!

I love Disney Parks and Disney Cruises as much as my kids do. And I love the freedom to experience the fun, the excitement, and the relaxation sans children.

So whether you board the flight after you dropped the kids at Grandma’s house, or you brought Grandma along to watch the kids while you and your spouse have some alone time, here are some of my top reasons that adult-focused vacationing at Disney is just as magical:

1. Reunite with your Prince Charming

There is a reason potty training and breaking up sibling fist fights aren’t mentioned in the epilogue. Parenting has a tendency to tarnish even the purest of love stories.

From fine dining, to para-sailing, to safari rides, you and your spouse can have a blast and get that critical quality time together.

    Awesome post! I’m a Disney park lover myself. I did go to Disneyland Anaheim once without my kids. That was in 2009. I did enjoy that time alone at Disneyland. I rode Pirates of the Caribbean a total of 7 times! Magical!
