Your Guide to Recreation Activities Available at Walt Disney World

in Travel, Walt Disney World

The Walt Disney World Resort offers so much more than just theme parks. From horseback riding and bass fishing to archery to world-class spas, there are so many experiences waiting for you that do not require a single park pass reservation.

But as the Central Florida mega-resort steadily reopens, not all of these experiences are reopened to Disney Guests just yet. So here are some recreational activities that are available right now at Walt Disney World.
