Frank recommends the Tomorrowland Transit Authority where you take a relaxing trip around Tomorrowland high above the hustle and bustle and enjoy the breeze! He aslo recommends visiting the Hall of Presidents. While it's worth seeing even if you're not tired, after several hours at the Magic Kingdom in the summer heat, this dim, air conditioned show is a great escape. Some of Frank's secret spots to relax would be a shady seating area that faces that castle once you pass through the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe. He also enjoys visiting Columbia Harbour House, a counter service dining location, found in Liberty Square, that has an upstairs eating area that few know about. It's usually quiet, dim, and cool.
Frank recommends the World Showcase as a place to relax. There are several quiet, little nooks and crannies located all throughout World Showcase where you can sit, relax, and escape the masses. It's also nice to sit near the water and enjoy the view. He also suggets the American Aventure. Just like the Hall of Presidents, this show lets you sit down and cool off.
Frank recommends The Great Movie Ride. This gentle attraction has a few moments of action, but it is mostly relaxing, cool, and you get to sit down! Frank has two personal favorite spots at this park. One is an area of benches located near the giant Sorcerer's hat, in the direction of Animator's Courtyard. This is a great place to get off your feet and there is often a cool breeze blowing through. Some of Frank's favorite spots would be outside of Tower of Terror. Located across from the Tower of Terror gift shop, there is a semi-covered area where you can relax in the shade. He also likes the meet and greet area inside the Magic of Disney Animation attraction in Animation Courtyard. This indoors area is large, cool, and has several places to sit.
The paths around the Tree of Life are great if it's not crowded. These paths can be taken at leisure and the scenery is beautiful! One of Frank's favorite spots can be found if you keep go past Expedition Everest. There you will find yourself at a small sitting area made of rockwork and in the shape of semicircle, located near the water. This place is great to kick back and watch the guests go by.
Water Parks: Disney water parks offer plenty to do; but they also offer many places to relax. One of Franks' favorite ways to relax is by floating down Typhoon Lagoon's Castaway Creek and Blizzard Beach's Cross Country Creek. You can float in the sun for as long as you like!
Other: Frank also enjoys relaxing, and even taking a nap, in the comfy and luxurious lobbys at Wilderness Lodge or the Grand Floridian. They offer comfortable seating and cool temperatures. It's also common to find a hammock or two and hot tubs on the grounds of Disney resorts, opportunities which should definitely be taken advantage of for those who enjoy taking it easy. He also likes taking a ferry from the Magic Kingdom to the resorts. The breeze, gentle ride, and view are very calming. Finally, he suggests splurging and visiting one of Disney's spas. It is the ultimate way to relax and is worth every penny! He particular recommends the spa at Wilderness Lodge because it is still luxurious, but more economical.
These are some of Frank's favorite ways to recharge during our stay at Disney World. What are some of yours?
