Though it tends to be marketed more to our little humans, Orlando, Florida is very much an adult playground. It’s an excellent getaway for any age human who enjoys entertainment, dining, sunshine, and memory making. Sounds like most of us, right? Adults tend to be in need of a quality getaway more than kids anyway, and Orlando can provide precisely that.
Orlando for Adults
Let us further entice you into the idea of an Orlando adult getaway by sharing our favorite activities for such a trip.
One Stop Entertainment Shop: Disney Springs
What do you get when you combine the charms of Disney with a plethora of fine dining, drinking, and shopping? Why Disney Springs of course! Adults-sans-kids tend to particularly enjoy The Edison, Wine Bar George, and the wine slushies at Amorette’s Patisserie.
Drink Around the World, Figuratively, at Epcot
Every adult-themed Orlando trip is infinitely more fun with a day dedicated to drinking around the world at EPCOT. To make this happen, all you need are tickets to Walt Disney World and a day planned to be spent at EPCOT. Within EPCOT lies the World Showcase, an interactive exhibition of 11 countries, each with a unique opportunity to drink the alcoholic beverage for which each given country is known. You can create a drinking game, or keep it simple and strive to have a drink in a few of the nations, as a group. Execute it however you please; the point is to have a great time drinking around the world with your pals.
Being a festive and entertainment focused city, Orlando offers seasonally themed events throughout any given season. If you enjoy partaking in themed festivities, you won’t have a hard time planning a trip accordingly. Our favorite season in the city is autumn, mostly because it houses two of our favorite events: Halloween Horror Nights and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Any adult oriented Orlando trip will is enhanced with a day or two spent at either of those festivals. Use Halloween Horror Nights to bask in the spooky glory of Halloween, and use the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival to eat and more than you thought was possible!
Incredibly Luxurious Spas
Orlando is a resort town, meaning it’s chockful of beautiful resorts each with its own luxury spa. This bodes well for you and the crew because unlike a family or kid-focused Orlando trip; you can pencil in time for relaxation. Chances are you’ll be more than happy to spend a day getting pampered at the spa, and the other adults will too. Do exactly that at the idyllic Escape Spa at The Grove. After spa treatments, keep the zen zone going by posting up at The Springs, also at The Grove, an adults-only pool.
Play, Play, Play, Sans-Kids
Just because you didn’t bring the kids, or don’t have any, doesn’t mean you can’t take full advantage of the city and go to all the theme parks. If you want to spend a few days at Walt Disney World living out your princess and prince fantasies, then do it! Or, take your adventuring up a notch by learning how to surf on the brand new FlowRider surf simulator, at The Grove. Here’s a quick list of our favorite theme park, water park, and entertainment venues in the city:
–Walt Disney World, more specifically the Animal Kingdom and EPCOT
–Universal Studios, more specifically the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
-Surfari Water Park
More Dining, Drinking, and Shopping, Universal Studio’s Style: City Walk
Most of Orlando’s offerings are centered around the same four themes: dining, drinking, shopping, and entertainment. If you love one, or more, of those things, then we’re certain your adult group will enjoy City Walk, Universal Studio’s self-proclaimed epicenter of awesome. Located adjacent to Universal Studio’s theme parks, City Walk requires no tickets; you can simply show up and enjoy!
