    Family of 5 have 4-night resort-only trip at Port Orleans Riverside. So far, we will be exploring our resort, French Quarter, Disney Springs, Boardwalk, and AK Lodge. We have one more day to fill. Any ideas on where we should explore or what we can add in?

    Hi Shawna!

    There is so much magic to experience throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including tons of fun activities outside of the parks!  You could check out some of the incredible adventures in the Enchanting Extras Collection that happen outside of the parks, including backstage tours like the Sense of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or classic fun like miniature golf at Winter Summerland Miniature Golf or Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf.

    There are also plenty of pixie-dusted activities available at other resorts for you to experience.  One of my favorite activities is searching for "Hidden Mickeys."  At Disney's Wilderness Lodge, there is actually a scavenger hunt available to help you search for all of the "Hidden Mickeys" throughout the resort!  Just stop by the Front Desk to ask for your guide.  You can even take the water transportation from Disney's Wilderness Lodge over to Disney's Contemporary Resort where you can continue your resort-hopping adventures.  Then, just hop on the Resort Monorail to explore Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!  You will even get a lovely view of Magic Kingdom Park and Cinderella Castle!  You can also take the water transportation over to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground to enjoy some of the outdoor recreational activities available there!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
