Not sure what to do for Dad on Father’s Day? Or perhaps you just want to give him something special on your next magical vacation? Walt Disney World offers many options that will appeal to Dad and make his vacation extra magical. Disney is created as a place for families to enjoy together, but that doesn’t mean that there are not some things that just dad can enjoy. Here are ten things dad will love at Walt Disney World
Wild Africa Trek
This African expedition experience is just right for the dad with an adventurous spirit, and there’s no passport required. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, dad can explore exotic African wildlife in their natural habitat on a privately guided, three-hour journey through a savannah. Wild Africa Trek also invites trekkers to a serene, savannah-view overlook while enjoying African-inspired food and beverages. Wild Africa Trek is $189 to $249 per person, plus tax (prices vary based on season).
Guided Fishing Excursion
Whether a seasoned sportsman or an amateur angler, there’s nothing more relaxing than fishing at sunrise on Bay Lake with spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom. Dads can reel in the fun with an unforgettable two- or four-hour, catch-and-release fishing trip that includes a private guide and all the fishing supplies.
Art of Shaving
This new boutique at Disney Springs offers premium shaving supplies, plus hair and body grooming products ideal for dad. There are razors, shaving brushes, pre-shave oils and creams for a barbershop-like shave. Dads can get expert shaving advice on products and techniques, or make an appointment for a luxurious grooming experience at the Barber Spa.
Walt Disney World offers two world class fully functioning spas- Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Senses Spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. These spas offer a full relaxation experience, anyone can enjoy. Both spas also offer some “men-only” options.
Got a golf lover for a dad? Don’t worry, Disney World has you covered. While the family enjoys the theme parks, dad can grab his clubs and enjoy one of three 18-hole championship golf courses, or a 9-hole walking course. If Dad didn’t bring his own clubs along, no worries because all courses also offer rental clubs from top brands. If you would rather golf with your family, Walt Disney World also offers two miniature golf courses, Winter Summerland and Fantasia.
Food Lover’s Paradise
With hundreds of eateries at Disney, there is everything from casual to gourmet to satisfy Dad’s appetite. From fresh seasonal dishes at California Grill, to first-rate, oak-fired beef at Yachtsman Steakhouse, to a nostalgic meal in a 50s-style drive-in at Sci-Fi Dine In, the sky is the limit. And if Dad is a foodie, there’s a culinary extravaganza featuring celebrity chefs, wine tasting, craft beers and savory samplings during the annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, September 25 through November 16, 2015.
Dad doesn’t have to miss watching his favorite team or that big playoff game while on vacation. ESPN Club at Disney’s BoardWalk is the ultimate sports bar featuring 100 big screens, interactive games, dozens of beers, plus nachos, fries and ESPN Wings.
ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
This 220-acre complex for both pro and amateur athletics features more than 170 annual events. Treat Dad to some wings or nachos while you watch a game on one of seven HDTVs at ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill or in early spring, head to the ballpark with Dad and catch the Atlanta Braves during a spring training game.
Splitsville Luxury Lanes
Take Dad out to a night of good old-fashioned bowling in a retro, vintage-style venue at Downtown Disney. This trendy, two-level location features 30 lanes, plus live entertainment, a balcony bar, and a variety of dining options with all Dad’s favorites such as filet sliders, pizza and sushi.
