    My family has just booked a vacation for the end of May after I graduate from college- My dream come true! The group is all 22+ & I put myself in charge of planning. I was wondering if you had tips or advice for visiting the parks with an older group?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there!

    I hope you are having a delightful time planning your dream adventure, Emilee! Congratulations! My college graduation present to myself was also a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, so I fully understand just how extra magical that diploma will be.  

    When I plan a vacation with just adults in mind, I absolutely schedule our time a little differently. My family loves eating and drinking our way around the Resort, so we definitely spend more time in the Downtown Disney Area, Epcot's World Showcase, Disney's Hollywood Studios and the many Resort Hotels when it's only adults visiting.  While we will still will spend at least a whole day at Magic Kingdom Park, we might break it up with a trip to a near by resort for lunch and drinks, or a trip to the Downtown Disney Area for some shopping, bowling, or music. We also plan a few tours for our trip. The Wilderness Back Trail Adventure and the Wild Africa Trek are incredible. 

    There are some incredible dining experiences throughout the Resort and I would be happy to give you specific recommendations if you would like. Just send me a follow-up question. While I love watching the magic through my children's eyes, adult trips are a blast and your group is going to love their vacation. If there is anything else I may assist you with, Emilee, please let me know. Have a great time planning, I hope to hear from you soon!

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends.
