Nighttime Fun!

While we enjoy touring the Disney parks and resorts any time of day, there is something a bit more magical about touring at night.  Summer Walt Disney World Vacation park hours are extended and that means we get more twilight hours in the park.  We love having  even more opportunity to enjoy the twinkling lights, attractions in the dark, neon signs and fireworks!

Resort Pools

Summer Walt Disney World Vacation enjoy the resort pools

Every Disney Resort has great themed pools and summer is the perfect time for pool time.  While the pools are always relaxing and wonderful, they are even more refreshing in the summer.  We also find that we make ourselves plan times to really enjoy our resort pool in the summer. Some of our favorite resort pools are at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Disney Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

  1. I totally agree with the extended night time hours, traveling during the summer is worth it for that alone! We like to take a break mid-day and go back to the hotel to swim and snack and then head back to the parks later when it’s cooled down. One of our favorite things to do is be the last ones in the park so we can enjoy the music and lights with minimal people around. That’s when the park is truly magical!
