These courses are sprinkled with Disney magic, including Mickey-shaped sand traps at the Magnolia Golf Course and refreshment carts featuring characters such as Minnie and Donald designs. You can easily rent golf clubs and shoes, and if you’re looking to perfect your game, professional instructors are available to help you refine your magical golf skills.
4. Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs
Disney Springs isn’t just a shopping hub; it’s a vibrant entertainment district filled with diverse dining options and a lively nightlife that’ll get you moving to the music. Among its attractions, Splitsville Luxury Lanes stands out as a retro-inspired bowling alley that offers a fantastic blend of live music, delectable dining, refreshing drinks, pool tables, and, of course, bowling lanes. With both upstairs and downstairs dining areas, along with numerous bowling alleys on both levels, Splitsville provides the perfect setting for you and your friends to enjoy a night of excitement.

5. Jellyrolls Dueling Piano Bar
If you’re in search of a nighttime experience that promises laughter, dancing, and the creation of unforgettable memories, the Jellyrolls Dueling Piano Bar is the place to be. This bar, at the Boardwalk Resort offers an adult night out that will leave you enchanted. Here you can savor specialty drinks that taste like vodka infused with the flavors of jolly ranchers. The stage is adorned with two pianos, each skillfully manned by a talented musician. What sets Jellyrolls apart is the spirit of collaboration between these pianists; they’re not competing, but rather complementing each other’s talents. At times, one pianist takes the lead, and other times, it’s the other musicians’ turn, all while adding in creative makeshift percussion and piano harmonies. Both pianists also lend their voices to the mix. There’s no predetermined set list or agenda; instead, the entire evening is filled with music played exclusively by audience request. So, bring your favorite classic rock tunes, beloved Disney songs, or any other musical preference, and be sure to arrive early to secure a spot for a truly enchanting and magical night at Jellyrolls. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss.
Disney’s commitment to enchantment extends beyond its theme parks, ensuring that adults can immerse themselves in the magic, too, creating unforgettable experiences that cater to the inner child in all of us.
