    Mickey What describes your trip without kids?

    What describes your next trip without kids?
    This would describe my next trip:

    Stay There Late: Better time to get to enjoy the parks when it’s not as crowded and not as many strollers

    La Cava del Tequila: Enjoy their array of tequilas, margaritas and tapas style appetizers. Excellent Stuff

    Signature Dining: dining locations such as California Grill, Narcoosees, Le Cellier, and other great ones.

    Boardwalk and Downtown Disney: Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk as well as Atlantic Dance Hall. Downtown Disney has House of Blues with great music!

    Be a Kid Again: Going on all the rides I want to, and eating where I want. And I can get MY picture with the characters. I love to be able to be a kid when I go to Disney.

    Re: What describes your trip without kids?

    I'd say the main grown-up things that we'll do on our next trip are:

    Food & Wine Festival (lots of this!)
    POFQ (first time staying here)
    Resort Bars (various)
    Ferry from POFQ to DTD
    AKL free culinary tour

    Then on the following trip:

    Sushi at Poly
    Le Cellier
    Raglan Road
    Crew's Cup Lounge
    Narcoossee's (the bar, maybe)
    Cava del Tequila (cucumber margaritas...mmmm!)
    Wilderness Lodge free tour

    Great question!!

    All the rides (no kids still means we do the rides).

    DTD hot dogs and margaritas on the first night.

    Leave the parks early to chill out (no pressure to stay and ride everything in one go).

    The odd lazy hour or two chilling in our room.

    Lots of people watching in DHS and Epcot - often with a beer (or two!) in hand (no kids to complain "we're bored!".

    Nice meals - mostly out of WDW (again, no pressure to stay), especially tapas at Cafe TuTu Tango on I-Drive.

    Chilled out boat rides between POR and DTD and between DHS and the Boardwalk and Epcot.

    La Cava, Il Mulhino, The Crews Cup and Muddy Waters.

    Strolls around POR in the sunshine.

    Warm evening driving home to POR with the roof down and some classic rock on WMMO.

    Champagne in "France" and cider in the UK - on more than one occasion!!

    Jiko.

    Le Cellier for lunch and the Rose & Crown for dinner and IllumiNations, both with lots of lovely wine (mmmm!) and a Disney bus home.

    Drinking around the world in the evenings and leaving Epcot with everything appearing slightly fuzzier than normal!

    I love our WDW trips!!
    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow

    We don't have kids of our own, but the last few tips we've gone with friends who have kids. I think the biggest difference in this next trip without kids is we can eat anywhere we want. Most of our dinning choices were based on where the kids wanted to eat, or not wanting to spend the money on nicer resturaunts because the kids would eat anything on the menu.
    2006 & 2008 Fort Wilderness
    2009 bought into the DVC and Kidani Village
    2010 4 night Disney cruise on the Wonder and BLT
    2011 Old Key West and Boardwalk Villas
    2011 Bay Lake Tower
    2012 Kidani Village, Vero Beach, Saratoga Springs, and Jambo House

    Would've next time we do a "no kids" trip - we would:
    - go during food and wine - we really enjoyed this and wish we would have had more time to experience everything
    - we read somewhere that people do their own "monorail bar tour" where you spend a few hours visiting all the restaurants at the monorail hotels and grab a drink / appetizers at each spot then head to he next place - sounds fun to me -
    - may even skip the other parks and hang by pool, resort hop, hit downtown Disney and just enjoy.

    I'll stick to Mexican with my margaritas, thank you very much!

    So is Crews Cup mostly adults? It doesn't seem like a place for kids, but you never know.

    Mainly adults when we were in.

    Great service in dark, relaxing booths. Almost as good as Il Mulhino!
