    I'm planning our family's first trip. I'm planning on staying at one of the resorts. My mother hates crowds and doesn't want to come with us. Are there enough things for her to do if she doesn't come to the parks with us?

    Hi Melinda! How exciting to be planning your first Disney vacation! There is so much for your mother to do depending on her interests. We keep extending the length of our vacations in order to enjoy more non-park activities.

    Firstly, depending on the resort you choose, there will be plenty to do exploring all that your resort has to offer. She can pamper herself at one of the three full service spas available. Does she golf? There are four championship courses to choose from for all levels of expertise. One of our favourite ways to spend a day (or two) is shopping at Downtown Disney. In addition to shopping and dining she can relax and enjoy a movie. Or take in CIrque du Soleil's La Nouba. She can also enjoy the sights, activities and shops of the Boardwalk. She can rent a bike, a boat, go fishing, the possibilities are endless. We also like visiting other resorts, checking out the shops, dining and recreation available, Or, she can sit by the pool, relax and enjoy a good book!

    I hope this helps!
