Walt Disney World from an Outside Perspective

Today we’re taking a different look at Walt Disney World. One that is mostly for newcomers to the Resort, but it can be read by all. We are taking a look at Walt Disney World from an outside perspective – why those who aren’t fans dislike it so much.

“Disney World is for kids. Why would any adults have fun or want to go there?”

Well actually that’s a good question. I don’t blame anyone for asking this, because if you rarely go and don’t know much about it, that’s what you’re forced to assume. And it’s not like that at all. Disney isn’t just for kids – it’s for children, teens, adults, and even elderly folks! (Well, at least most parts.)

So really by saying this you’re not giving Disney enough credit for what they have. I think they’ve worked extremely hard and succeeded at having a land that everyone can enjoy. What’s here for adults you ask? Well, here’s just a little list:

  • American Idol Experience
  • Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster
  • Tower of Terror
  • Downtown Disney
  • World Showcase

That’s just to name a few. There’s plenty other attractions, areas, restaurants, and overall fun for adults in the Resort.

VIDEO: Part II of my answer comes in the form of a video. Not one I made, but one by the comedian and bad driver Tim Babb.

Comments? I would love to hear your thoughts. Do you like Disney World? Do you get criticized for it? Maybe you’re one of those who criticizes it! I’d love to hear from you too. All thoughts are welcome in the comments!
