Coming up on this week's show, we discuss some of the things you can do for fun in Walt Disney World.

Wilderness Back Trail Adventure
Ride an X2 Segway through the beautiful Fort Wilderness resort - training and equipment is provided beforehand. This is a two hour experience offered twice daily on select days. The cost (as at release) is $99 but there are restrictions on who can participated in this one as well as clothing requirements. 

Mermaid School
We have reviewed this on the show before but still a fun thing to do! $50 and is offered at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and Disney's Carribean Beach. Hop to show 262 to hear Kat describe her experiences (show link).

Water Based Activities
Sadly the Sammy Duvall watersports centre is no longer at WDW and if you recall, Jayne did a paragliding experience here all the way back in 2013. However, there are still all sorts of water based activities that can be booked. From hiring a range of boats to fishing. One of the activities that caught our eye is the $190 surfing experience at Typhoon Lagoon. In a three hour session, you get to catch 100 waves (broken in to four sets of 25) plus tutition and there are light snacks and beverages available. 

Dive Quest
An amazing opportunity to dive in the 57 million galloon tank amongst 6000 sea creatures. This is a 3 hour experience costing $180. However, you need to be SCUBA certified to do this but if you are not certified you can just do a snorkelling session.

Art Programmes
Join a professional artist for a session on creativity. This activity is based at select Disney resorts and costs between $30 and $50. 

Beignet Dash
The Course
Pop over to Port Orleans French Quarter for this $15 experience. Occurs every Sunday, check in is at the River Walk (call +1407 WDW PLAY to book but you can register on the day but payment is only by credit card). Then it involves a 1 1/2 mile course and at the end you are given a beaded necklace with an acryllic 'Beignet Dash' logo plus a voucher for a same day reward of three beignets.

Foot Golf

A 9 hole foot golf experience is available over at Disney's Oak Trail golf course. This definately sounds like a lot of fun and a nice alternative to the usual mini golf. Anyone tried this yet? We would love to hear your thoughts!

Carriage Rides at Fort Wilderness

Meet up at the Pioneer Hall and the cost, for adults, is $12. The rides are about 25 minutes and cover the Fort Wilderness resort.

Resort Visiting
Who has actually visited each and every resort? This is a fun thing to do, using the free Disney transport. Additionally, The Grand Floridian, Wilderness Lodge Boardwalk and the Yacht Club and offer a free hotel tour (check via concierge at the particular resort) and who can forget the free food tour of Boma and Jiko over at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House?

These are just some of the many things you can do at Walt Disney World away from the theme parks. Have we missed your favourite? Well we invite you to let us know!
