    Are there any places around the parks where you could spread out a blanket in the grass to stretch out and take a rest (perhaps a little nap)?

    Hi, Johnna!

    While there are grassy areas in the parks, they are fenced off and not for picnics or resting.  However, I hear where you are going with this - You want to sneak in a cat-nap during your busy days of magic!   Well let me tell you of a few places where you might get that quick power nap to keep you going! 

    You will want to hit some of the longer, air conditioned attractions.  In Magic Kingdom, head to Carousel of Progress or Hall of Presidents.  These are 2 of my favorite attractions, but I may have been known to doze off a time or 2 when it has been a long hot day!   In Epcot, Spaceship Earth is a relaxing attraction that you might be able to drift off for a few minutes.  In Hollywood Studios, enjoy a tour of One Man's Dream which is followed by a movie that I love - the story of Walt Disney - but hey, sometimes you need a quick break!

    Another option is to go to a nearby resort. While you cannot use their pools, you are welcome to relax on the beach. A nice hammock over at Polynesian near Magic Kingdom or lounging in the sand by the Beach Club (outside Epcot at the International Gateway) are both great places to kick-back. 

    Your best bet would be to head back to your resort for a nap or a swim.  This will get you refreshed for the evening.    If going to your resort won't work, try one of my not-so-secret resting spots.  Good luck!
