Walt Disney World Resort is known for its world-class dining, unforgettable entertainment, and next-level attractions, but there are plenty of unique experiences to be had in and outside of the parks, too! Today we’re sharing four unique Walt Disney World experiences that you need to know about.
Wilderness Back Trail Adventure
Experience the beauty of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a whole new way with this one-of-a-kind Segway® X2 tour. Enjoy the back roads on this 2-hour circuit of paved paths and woodland trails. Along the way you’ll stop at the stables at Tri-Circle-D Ranch, Disney’s iconic Bay Lake, and other Disney’s Fort Wilderness landmarks.
Wilderness Back Trail Adventure costs $90 per guest, but Annual Passholder discounts are available. The tour takes place once a day at 8:30 AM and you’ll want to check availability to secure your spot. Guests must be 16 years of age or older and weigh 100 to 250 pounds to participate. If you’ve never ridden a Segway before – no worries! The tour allots for 30 minutes of practice time before your journey begins.
Hair Cut at Magic Kingdom
Did you know you can get a hair cut on Main Street USA at Magic Kingdom? Visit the Harmony Barber Shop tucked in the corner to the right of City Hall. It’s the perfect spot for a first hair cut or just come for the old-fashioned charm of a rustic all-American barber shop.
50th Anniversary Tour
For Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, the Most Magical Place on Earth has been offering a special VIP tour experience! This tour experience takes you on a trip through Walt Disney World’s history, evening offering you a peek into the Cinderella Castle Suite.
While most Disney VIP tour experiences allow the guest to choose their adventure for the day, that’s not the case with this tour. The 50th Anniversary Tour highlights EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, and the surrounding Magic Kingdom resorts. Tour features include lunch at Be Our Guest, Dinner at Space 220, and of course a tour of the rarely-seen Cinderella Castle Suite. This tour will end with the World’s Most Magical Celebration, so don’t miss your chance to take this tour while you can!
Is Disney’s Animal Kingdom your favorite park? Starlight Safari is a private after-dark safari experience that allows you to see Disney’s many Animal Kingdom species in a whole new way! You can expect to see wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, giraffes, and over 20 other species that roam freely at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
As you climb aboard an open-sided safari vehicle, be ready to keep your eyes peeled for over 30 species of African wildlife. You’ll even receive a night vision device, making the species even easier to spot. A Starlight Safari tour lasts approximately an hour and is open to all Walt Disney World guests ages 8 and older.
