    Are there scavenger hunts around the resorts- If so, how do I sign up?

    Hi there Sinead, and welcome to planDisney!

    As a scavenger-hunt and puzzle-solving enthusiast myself, I'm always in search of fun activities like this in and around Walt Disney World Resort. Whether to while away a rainy day or spend a first or last day of a Resort Hotel stay outside of the Theme Parks, I've always found them to be a great way to discover some hidden nooks and crannies that a lot of fellow resort guests don't see!

    You'll be happy to hear that scavenger hunts can indeed be currently found across the Disney Resort Hotels, and are subject to availability depending on the location. Some of the most memorable scavenger hunts I've completed have been at destinations the inspire a sense of adventure like Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or at Disney's Wilderness Lodge with the chance to spot some beautiful natural settings or wildlife along the way. There was also a great one over at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa that took you around some pretty and picturesque spots - but it's important to remember that these offerings are always subject to change without prior notice and the current construction of reimagined spaces across this resort are an example of why this may not be available.

    Since these are largely self-guided experiences, there is no formal sign-up process; we've been able to simply find printed pages handy to pick up or easy to request from the Front Desk Cast Members if the scavenger hunt is currently available. In the past, certain hunts have come with prizes or tokens to celebrate their completion, but this is never guaranteed and may be up to the discretion of the Cast Members at various Resort Hotels. I think it's always best to go into it with the spirit of exploration and feel rewarded just having finished it and gotten to know more about the Disney Destination you're visiting! In the meantime, come back to planDisney again for any more tips or advice and always keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog for any new holiday-themed hunts that will take place at EPCOT or Disney Springs ahead of your next adventure!

    Happy Hunting!
