    Hi there, We're visiting Florida for the first time in Aug 2017. We have my parents joining us - they're older and won't go on any rides. Is there a non-ride pass of some kind I can get them? Thank you.

    Hi Angie!

    You and your parents are going to have such an amazing time at Walt Disney World! How wonderful that you get to experience the magic of Disney with your loved ones. Disney does not sell a special pass for those who will not experience the attractions, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the number of attractions your parents can experience. At Magic Kingdom, Mickey's Philharmagic is a wonderful show that you can watch, similar to sitting in a movie theatre. Carousel of Progress is another one of my favorites and you can enjoy this classic show while sitting in a comfy chair. Your parents will also love the daily 3:00 p.m. Festival of Fantasy Parade, the brand new fireworks show: Happily Ever After and Country Bear Jamboree

    When I took my mom, for her first time since 1974, she was thrilled that there were so many things she could do and the number of attractions she could experience that were not "rides". 

    Don't miss some of the great dining experiences at the park, like Liberty Tree Tavern. They serve traditional Thanksgiving fare, like turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, all year long.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
