    I never played Winter Summerland Miniature Golf or Fantasia Miniature Golf. My mom (who is 80) wants to try. What is the "procedure"? Do I need a reservation? What should I expect out of the experience? Anything would be helpful.

    Hi Lucinda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Walt Disney World has four miniature golf courses (two at each location), and these are a really great place to spend some relaxation time, and I think it's wonderful that your mom wants to play!  I am sure you will all enjoy this experience.  Reservations have recently been introduced, and can be made by calling (407) 939-7529.  Walk-ins are possible too, but you may have to wait for an available slot, or you might get lucky and start playing immediately.  There is somewhere to sit and enjoy a drink, before or after your game too.  I thoroughly recommend playing these courses for some family fun away from the theme parks.  Winter Summerland Miniature Golf is to be found alongside Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. The Winter Course, as you would imagine, follows the snowy theme of Blizzard Beach, and invites you to "putt your way to the North Hole"! While The Summer Course is themed more around sandcastles than snowstorms, with fun in the sun and a melting snowman. Over at the other courses - Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf - located across the street from Walt Disney World Swan Hotel - the Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course is suitable for families and aspiring golfers and is full of fanciful fountains, musical surprises and even pirouetting ostriches! For a more challenging game, the Fantasia Fairways Miniature Golf Course may suit you if you prefer a more skilled approach, across the sand traps, bunkers and sloping greens - it really does look like an authentic golf course, shrunk to miniature size.  If you play here into the evening, you will be accompanied by the dramatic backdrop of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and maybe even some fireworks. I see your arrival date is in September (exciting !!), and for most days during that month the opening hours for all courses are 10.00am-10.00pm (please note that times are always subject to change).  

    If you want to see the fireworks while you play, I just checked the calendar for Disney's Hollywood Studios. For the week of your visit, Fantasmic! is scheduled for 8.00pm, and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is scheduled for 10.00pm (times are subject to change).

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
