Still need more ideas of things to do at Walt Disney World with a theme park ticket? Your wish is my command. Take a gander at some of these fun things to do. For additional ideas, go to My Top 10 Favorite Things to Do Without a Theme Park Ticket and 10 Uncommon Activities at Disney World.
- Bob Jackson—For a fun activity for all ages, head over to see Bob Jackson at Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Most nights of the week you will find Bob on his piano. He has three acts running from 8pm-12am. Bob’s classic songs along with audience participation are a recipe for a good time.
- Crossroads at House of Blues—Crossroads at House of Blues has good food and great entertainment. It is located on the west side of Disney Springs. It has a dance hall and concerts starring legendary and up-and-coming names in the music business. I recommend making reservations and treat you to a night of dancing or simply listen to some great music.
- Camping—At Walt Disney World’s Fort Wilderness, campgrounds are available for rent. Camping here would not only be fun, but can also save you some money, because the rates are cost less than renting a resort room. The campsite options range from tents and pop-ups to premium campsites that have full hookups for RVs with electric and water. Extra amenities also include bathroom areas, campfires and transportation to the parks at the Wilderness Lodge bus stop. Plus, you can take a boat ride to some of the parks!
- Resort fire pits—Who doesn’t love a good bonfire?! The wood-burning smell is one of my favorite smells. What a great way to spend quiet, quality time with friends and/or family. Most resorts hold a nightly fire around sunset. Some of the best places to kickback, relax and toast some marshmallows are Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Polynesian Resort, because of the unlimited supply of marshmallows! No, seriously, that’s just a bonus. You can’t go wrong no matter where you decide to enjoy the great outdoors.
- Movie nights at resorts—Who knew this was even an option? Why are you surprised? I think Disney thinks of EVERYTHING from every person’s situations. It’s as if one of them stopped and said to themselves “Self, what if someone just wants to hang at their resort and watch a movie for the evening”? While not all resorts offer this treat, if this interests you, ask your reservation cast member if that is an option at your requested resort before you book. If it isn’t, ask which resorts are currently providing that entertainment and book your reservations at that resort. Resting at the resort on a blanket on the lawn is a GREAT way to rejuvenate your mind and body for a busy day at the park the next day.
