    Are horseback rides available? I have called the number for reservations and been on hold over 4 hours. Do we need reservations for mini golf also?

    Hello Catherine and may I wish you a very warm to planDisney!  We are so glad you stopped by with such great questions for us.

    I have some very fond memories of taking my own girls Horseback Riding at The Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground!  This wonderful outdoor activity is certainly not to be missed, which is one of the reasons why it makes me sad to know you've experienced difficulties in being able to secure an over-the-phone reservation. 

    It may be helpful to know that places may be available on a walk-up basis for Horseback Riding, simply arrive at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch on the day you wish to go on a trail ride and make the necessary enquires with Cast Members.  Additionally, Pony Rides which are suitable for younger Mouseketeers are available most days from 10 am until 3 pm near Pioneer Hall (in the Settlement area) on a purely walk-up basis where no prior booking is required.

    Generally speaking, Guests are indeed required to make reservations for recreation at Walt Disney World Resort over the phone, but since you've been experiencing such trouble I wonder if it might be worth emailing your request to a Cast Member who may be able to offer some assistance in making your booking.  It's easy to email Cast Members via this handy online form, but please do bear in mind that although Cast Members will always do their best to help, requests at Walt Disney World Resort can never be guaranteed. 

    There are so many Things to do in Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, and I have some wonderful news to share in that reservations are not always required for a round of putt-putt golf at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf.  Guests may call ahead to book next-day tee times or play on a walk-up basis.  

    As a fun alternative, Guests can also play 9 holes of FootGolf at Disney's Oak Trail!  And best of all, Guests can both book and pre-pay online via the Walt Disney World Golf website billed as the 'Happiest Place on Turf!"

    Catherine, I hope I've been able to provide you with a little additional insight and reassurance today.  If I can offer any further assistance, please don't hesitate to pop back to planDisney to ask me another question as I'm always more than happy to help.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
