On the latest episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast, Doug, Dennis, and John hung out at the pub to discuss their favorite things to do … that are not attractions.
Hmm. That got me to thinking. What are our favorite things to do that are not attractions? Mrs. All in WDW? What do you think?
1 – Disney Springs
Definitely Disney Springs. At one point, Doug Davis asked us if we were going to visit anywhere else in WDW other than Disney Springs.
Why would we? Actually, we do go to the parks plenty, of course, but Disney has done a great job re-imagining Downtown Disney. Here are just a few of our favorite “attractions”:
- The Boathouse
- Morimoto Asia
- Wolfgang Puck Express – Marketplace
- Starbucks – West Side
2 – Crescent Lake
We love, love, love, Crescent Lake … especially the BoardWalk. Let us describe the ways!
We love a morning walk from Disney’s Hollywood Studios to the BoardWalk area. In fact, Mrs. All in WDW really enjoys going over early in the morning for a cup of coffee and a walk.
We love lounging along Stormalong Bay. Sometimes, we’ll buy a bottle of wine, grab a couple of outdoor chairs at the Yacht Club, and enjoy the afternoon sunshine.
Other times, we’ll pull up a stool at Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill. A great pool view. Friendly bartenders. Refreshing drinks. Yum!
Then, there are the restaurants and bars. Great places like …
- Belle Vue Lounge
- ESPN Club
- Cape May Cafe
- Crew’s Cup Lounge
- Captain’s Grille
- Ale and Compass Lounge
- Cabana Bar and Beach Club
- Shula’s Steak House
- Todd English’s bluezoo
3 – Laguna Bar
In light of the massive refurbishment going on at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Mrs. All in WDW and I live in fear of Laguna’s demise.
We’ve made, what we hope to be, lifetime friends at that little lakeside bar, and it holds a very special place in our hearts. If it survives, we’ll be overjoyed!
That’s the short list for us, folks. How about you? What are your favorite things that are NOT attractions? Leave us some comments and let us know!
