    I am looking for suggestions on planning a trip with adult children?

    Hello there, Connie!

    From one Marylander to another, welcome to planDisney. I like to think of myself as an adult Disney kid, and I’m happy to share that there is something at the Walt Disney World Resort for every age range. To start, you may want to listen to our recent planDisney podcast episode that is all about planning Walt Disney World Resort vacations with young adults. 

    Connie, if you haven’t picked out your Disney Resort hotel yet, I always recommend picking a Resort in the EPCOT Resort area, like Disney’s Beach Club Resort. My group of young adults likes staying here because we can easily walk to the EPCOT International Gateway entrance in the evening for dinner or a drink. EPCOT is one of our favorite theme parks because you’ll often find a festival going on. For example, the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, presented by AdventHealth, is taking place from November 24 through December 30, 2023, and it will have some magical entertainment, Holiday Kitchens, and more for the whole family. 

    The EPCOT Resort area is a great place to stay because it is conveniently located near Disney’s BoardWalk, which is a beautiful area to walk around at night. There are also some amazing dining options and entertainment at Atlantic City Dance Hall that your adult children may be interested in as well. 

    My other recommendation is that your family take some time to explore Disney Springs. Your family can enjoy shopping, dining, music, and nightlife in this area, and if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can take advantage of the complimentary bus transportation back to your Resort. I have so many other recommendations to share, but we’ll need to save those for another question. Let us know if we can offer any other tips. 

    May the magic be with you!
