Heading to WDW? Don’t Forget Your Inner Child!

I read a post recently on Disney Dining entitled “Top 10 Ideas for an Adults Only Disney Trip” by a blogger I know, Krista Joy. Most sites that offer advice for adults visiting Walt Disney World offer the same information: spas, dining, golf, cocktails, etc., but Krista added a great one – Don’t forget the child within you!

I thought I was the only one that thought that way! I often head to Walt Disney World with friends and we spend days embracing our inner child!  We have epic pajama parties that would make any teenage girl jealous! We try on hats in the different countries in Epcot (while sipping a cocktail) declaring it “Epcot Hat Day”, hug characters, dance down the middle of Main Street USA – just general silliness! After all, where else do you see grown men buying and wearing Goofy hats that they will never wear again? Here’s what Krista wrote:

Don’t forget the child within you!

This is the most important thing for adults to do at Disney World! Hug a fluffy Disney character and get your picture taken. Wear your mouse ears, fly with Dumbo, get your face painted like a pirate, meet a Princess and eat a Mickey Ice Cream Bar for breakfast! Be silly, smile, and laugh. Walt Disney is the perfect place to let your hair down as an adult – and have a magical time!


Embracing your inner child is an important part of an adult only trip to Walt Disney World. Let your hair down, hug a character and let out your inner child!
