Those who think that Walt Disney World only has the Magic Kingdom are sorely missing out on the full spectrum of entertainment available! Miniature Golf isn’t a new activity but that doesn’t mean that you should by-pass the excitement that a great round of golf will bring to a family or to a couple looking to get away from the crowds.
Let’s look at how to play Mini Golf at Disney
THERE ARE TWO OFFICIAL MINI GOLF COURSES ON DISNEY PROPERTY
Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland.
Fantasia Gardens is a course based on Disney’s classic animated film ‘Fantasia’, with 18-holes of fun and excitement! It’s open from 10 am until 11 pm, seven days a week (weather permitting)
At the same location is the “hidden gem” for the competitive folks amongst us, the “Fairway”! This is basically a mini version of a REAL golf course. Par 3 and Par 5 holes ranging from 63 to 109 feet long, this course makes you prove your skills with a putter!
Fantasia Gardens is located within walking distance of both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, and are a hop skip and a jump from Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. It’s closest to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels.
The easiest way to get to the course? Make your way to the Boardwalk Area and walk between the Atlantic Dance and Jellyrolls Piano Bar, over the bridge and then continue straight ahead to the street. Fantasia Gardens is on the left (and the tennis courses on the right). If you get lost, just ask a cast member:)
DISNEY’S WINTER SUMMERLAND
Located in the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort area, in the same parking lot at Blizzard Beach Water Park, this course features two options for mini golf fanatics that either don’t want to go to the water park or want to just have some fun!
There are two options, with the Winter Course and Summer Course, featuring 18 holes of adventures. Open from 10am-11pm, seven days a week (weather permitting).
Adults are $14 + tax. Children are $12 + tax.
Annual passholder and Disney Travel Company discounts may be available, so definitely ask! There’s also a discount for the second round played on the same day (proof of purchase is required), so take advantage of that for sure!
Always have fun with Mini Golf by keeping score and having the winner get a Dole Whip or the loser having to grab the coffee the next morning!
