Day 3 in our Disney Video Tour — Moms Day Out in Disney World

by Susan

Disney Tips - Disney World Activities for Adults

Welcome to Day 3 in our 10 Days of Disney Video Tour.

Today we left the kids with Grandma and headed out for some Mom Me Time. Yes, we wanted to check out what Disney World has to offer for adults because we parents deserve some fun planned especially for us.

I think you’ll be as surprised as we were at what Disney World has to offer adults…

See the complete list of videos at 10 Days of Disney video tour.

Or click on each below to enjoy the magic of Disney…

And in the nature of full disclosure… Disney paid for our trip and produced these videos. But as you can imagine, they certainly didn’t need to pay us to love and gush about Disney… that just comes naturally. :)

Amazing. I’ve been to Disney in the past with our children but who knew some of those things were available. I would definitely be checking out the spa and going on safari!

Wow, you ladies are so brave to do that parasailing thing! I think I would want to go on a boat ride, the safari, and most definitely the spa!

My hubby and I have done Disneyland just the two of us (a couple of times) and have had the time of our life! There really are so many things for adults to do. We can’t wait for the chance to do Disney World just the two of us! Parasailing looks AWESOME!

The spa looked like heaven. I’ve never been to a spa. Sad, huh? I would also love to do the Safari and the jet boat thing. Parasailing, not so much!

If my husband had any control of this adult activity situation he’d do everything in his power to get me to parasail with him, BUT if it were completely up to me I’d be all about the spa! A massage would be heavenly!

I would spend a day walking through the Epcot World Showcase, sampling the food & taking photos (and pretending I was actually traveling the world!) — capped off by dinner by the lagoon watching the Illuminations show :) Definitely some great “Me Time”!!

19 Chrissy September 10, 2009 at 3:13 pm

Being a crazy, busy mom, I think the spa would definitely be my top choice. I mean, I know it is Disneyworld and seeing things just with other adults would be great, but relaxing and being pampered? For now, that’s for me!

I have never been parasailing -it looks like so much fun! Although I have had a regular massage before I’ve never done a bamboo massage so I would like to try that as well. Seeing these videos makes me wish that I was in Disney right now -it is my absolute favorite place to vacation!

Honestly, I would love to go to the spa! But, if I’m at DISNEY WORLD and could spend the day with my husband, I would really like to let the kid in me come out and ride all the rides at Magic Kingdom. Enjoy all the parades, food, fireworks, rides and time alone with my husband having fun!

If it was Moms Day Out, I would definitely hit Hollywood Studios to ride the Tower of Terror and the Rockin Rollercoaster as many times as possible, then head out for the parasailing or the safari and then hit the Spa! Dinner and drinks to follow and then a night out at Downtown Disney!!!

I think for me it would be to go on test track, the rapid ride that’s at animal kingdom and having a nice quiet dinner with my hubby w/o the kiddos. :) Preferably at Tony’s in Magic Kingdom. My hubby and I ate there on our honeymoon 11 yrs ago (which we are celebrating today).

We like to go to EPCOT World Showcase and stop at each country and try something small to eat at each place, and maybe imbibe a little too.
We are also HUGE people watchers. And the sunset over the lagoon is something that cannot be missed, as well as the fireworks.

For a moms day out at Disney I would have to say that I would hit Downtown Disney’s comedy clubs. The improve club is a hoot, but the Enlish pub is amazingly funny, even though I was so worried that someone was going to pick me from the audience and ask me something!

While I’d never turn down a good spa visit, I’d love to repeat something I was lucky enough to do years ago. My dad was there for a convention and took the family along. I’d just graduated from college at the time. One of the activities available for family was a backstage tour. I loved it and would love to take another. DW has changed so much since then.
