More Places to Play
BoardWalk—The BoardWalk resort has its own entertainment complex with clubs, restaurants, and entertainment. Jellyrolls is a dueling piano bar that serves drinks and free popcorn ($12 cover, 21 and up, no smoking allowed). Atlantic Dance Hall serves specialty drinks while open-request DJ music lures you onto the floor (no cover, 21 and up, open Tuesday–Saturday from 9:00 pm to 2:00 am). ESPN Club (page 254) is a popular sports bar. Midway games and street performers add to the fun. For details and directions to the BoardWalk resort, see page 49.
Celebration, Florida—Imagine what would happen if Disney created a real town and you’ve got the community of Celebration, located just a few miles from the parks. Disney has relaxed its control over the years, but it remains a quaint neighborhood. Visitors may stroll or shop, have a bite in a restaurant, take in a movie at the theater, or stay in the luxury hotel. Others dream of moving to this carefully planned development. For details, call 407-566-2200 or visit http://www.celebrationfl.com.
Golf—The Walt Disney World Resort boasts four championship courses and one nine-hole course, operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, which redesigned the Palm course (now an Arnold Palmer Signature Course). All courses are open to the public and feature full-service facilities, including driving ranges, pro shops, cafes, and lessons. Walt Disney World resort hotel guests receive a free golf club rental when they purchase another club rental and a round of golf, as well as free transportation for their scheduled tee times, at Magnolia, Lake Buena Vista, Palm, and Oak Trail. Call 407-WDW-GOLF or visit http://www.golfwdw.com. The Tranquilo Golf Club replaced the Osprey Ridge course in late 2014; it's run by the Four Seasons Resort http://tranquilogolf.com.
Miniature Golf Courses—Disney has miniature golf, too! Fantasia Gardens, near the Swan Resort, has two 18-hole courses. One course is based on Disney’s classic animated film, “Fantasia.” The other is a “grass” course (Fantasia Fairways) with wildly undulating par-three and par-four holes from 40 to 75 feet long. Waits for tee times for this challenging course can be double the wait for the Fantasia course. Winter Summerland is a miniature golf park at Blizzard Beach with two 18-hole courses—one is blanketed in “snow,” and the other celebrates the holidays in the tropics. Both are fun, and neither is very difficult. Tip: Ask about the “secret hole of the day” after you play at either course—if you get a hole-in-one in the secret hole, you may get a surprise. Cost with tax is $14.91 for adults and $12.78 for kids ages 3–9 (second round is half price), with discounts for Annual Passholders. Guests get one Disney logo golf ball for each round played! Hours: 10:00 am to 11:00 pm.
