What’s the first thing you think of when someone says the word Disney? Screaming children? Screaming parents? Bruised calves from getting run into by strollers?
One of the things that keeps me going back again and again is the ability to do a “kid-free as possible” Disney. Want to know how? I could tell you but then I’d have to, well, you know. Okay, not really, but these are closely guarded grown-up secrets. Don’t tell anyone else, okay?
Pay attention now, ’cause I’m only going to say this once. Unless I have another blonde moment and forget. Which happens a lot. Really. A LOT. (hubby snickers in the background)…
Keep in mind, this is just MY idea of doing Disney adult style. I deny any knowledge of shenanigans you may encounter, nor am I available for bail money.
1. Drinking around the world in Epcot – probably one of the most common shenanigan-making schemes for the over-sized Disney kid. I can’t even count the amount of customized t-shirts I’ve seen boasting of said endeavors. Of course, by the time most of these braggarts have reached Africa, they’re usually pretty much in a permanent face plant position.
2. Getting the last available Fast Passes for the day – or just waiting until you see a monumental breakdown of a parent’s sanity while waiting in line for Space Mountain. Then striking while the tempers are hot. But tread carefully my friends, as that Everestal breakdown, (like what I did there? Yeah, impressed myself too.) could quickly turn its fiery flames in your completely innocent direction.
3. Make dinner ressies at a restaurant where no parent in their right mind would bring a kid – Victoria and Albert’s anyone?
4. Search out the little hidden corners – you never know what you may stumble across. Like this hidden gem at the Boardwalk Inn.
5. And what may be my personal favorite – casually, (and loudly), mentioning how there’s a free annual pass giveaway contest in the farthest remote corner of the hotel, thereby leading to your pick of best pool chairs, seats in the hot tub, or uninterrupted poolside bar service. Not that I’ve EVER done anything even remotely as unDisney-spirited as this. Not once. Ever. Swear.
I’m sure there’s plenty more you could come up with to make your next Disney trip more adult-oriented. Feel free to add them to the list! There’s just one requirement, which I’m sure you can figure out without too much trouble. #shenanigans
Enjoy the ride.
What do you do to make your Disney trips more adult-like? Does it include shenanigans? Or security being called? Would you like it to??
