    Hi! Love the Panel!! ? is coming mid Sept w DH, DD5, DS2, and GPs. Would like to try mini golf, have never been to either. Any recommendation on which one to visit and which set of holes for us to play? Looking for an easier one for the kids. THANKS!!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Our family loves miniature golf. It is a family tradition to end our Disney trip with a parting round or two at one of their great courses.

    Winter Summerland, located next to Blizzard Beach, offers two 18 hole courses. One is a winter blizzard in Florida and the other is a more summer beach or tropical island theme. The courses are very cute and have adorable little rhymes about the theming of each hole and where to aim. These courses, in our opinion, are similar to the courses we find at home. The holes tend to be easier and were our favorite when our boys were younger. If your children are younger this would be my recommendation for sure.

    Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf, located across from the Swan Resort, is a much larger property with two 18 hole courses also. One of the courses is designed after a real golf course and features sand traps, water hazards and will be extremely difficult for younger (and maybe even older) children. We have given this one a try a time or two but it tends to lead to a great deal of frustration so we leave it  to the adults at this time. 

    The second course at Fantasia gardens is our favorite, The holes are all themed after the Disney classic Fantasia and offer squirting fountains and cute statues and greenery. The course is more challenging then the holes at Winter Summerland, but personally we have found it a great deal of fun for all the "kids" in our family and return again and again.            

    Both courses are open typically from 10am to 11pm and the cost is in the range of $12.00 for adults and $10.00 for children. The courses do offer some discounts, for example Annual Pass holders and DVC members, so be sure to ask. Additional information can be obtained by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.

    Wishing you many hole in one's!
