    Hi! Traveling with hubby in mid-March on business trip (3 days) w/o our 4 kids!! Staying at BoardWalk. For a massage, should I go with Muscles & Bustles Fit or go to another resort close by? Am looking for that spa relaxation feel. Many thanks!


    Although I've never received a massage at Muscles & Bustles, from what I've seen of it, it's not what some would consider a "spa" atmosphere. It's more like a hotel fitness room with massage rooms adjoining it.

    It sounds like you may be looking for the atmosphere of the Mandara Spa at the nearby Dolphin Hotel. It'll be about a 10- to 15-minute walk from the Boardwalk and to the Dolphin situated next door.  There, you'll find a sauna and whirlpool and other luxuries in a full spa experience. You may want to ask my fellow Moms Panelist Doug I. about his visit there via his bio page.

    FYI: the best comparison I've found on the internet of the spas available at Disney was found at  In the search box, type in "spa" and choose the fourth selection down: Spas, Health Clubs/Fitness Centers at Walt Disney World Resorts.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation and a blissful day at the spa!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
