In the second post about playgrounds and play spaces, we visit the Disney Resorts. If you missed the first part of the post about playgrounds and play spaces at the Disney theme parks, be sure to view it here.
If a playground or play space is a high priority at your resort, here is a list of the resorts with them:
Disney’s All Star Movies, Music, and Sports Resorts: Many larger than life props throughout the resort, perfect for photo taking and exploring. Traditional playground, similar to one located in any suburban neighborhood.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge: Traditional playground, the thatched roofs on parts of the playground make it blend well with the resort. Tons of slides!
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort: Not a traditional playground, play spaces at Art of Animation are oversized props that coordinate with the theme of the area they are located in. Lots of hidden slides and nooks and crannies to explore.
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn: Small, traditional playground.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort: Large, traditional playground, has unique features like several bridges and a tire style swing. Bonus: There are really comfortable hammocks for mom or dad to relax in while the kids play!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort: Well themed playground with swings, a traditional playground area, slides, and a sandbox area. Themed to look like an ancient dig site.
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground: Large, traditional style playground. Well shaded.
Disney’s Old Key West Resort: Traditional style playground with triangle canopies over it to provide shade. Sand substrate.
Disney’s Pop Century Resort: Many larger than life props throughout the resort, perfect for photo taking and exploring. Traditional playground, similar to one located in any suburban neighborhood. (Be sure to check out Twister Board, great for active toddlers!)
Disney Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside: Traditional style playgrounds. The one at Disney’s Riverside features a large wheel that kids can walk on!
Disney’s Saratoga Springs: Traditional style playground that is well themed to match the exterior of the resort.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: Traditional style playground with a sand substrate. Bonus: It is situated along Bay Lake with nice chairs for mom or dad to relax in!
Have fun playing!
