Traveling during the pandemic could sound like a daunting undertaking to some, especially when talking about traveling to a tourist destination such as Disney World. However, for those who want to travel to Disney World in the upcoming months, there is a way to enjoy Disney magic and avoid the crowds.
For those who are visiting the Disney World theme parks (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios), although there may be dispersed crowds throughout, safety is a top priority for the company. Not only is capacity reduced to 35%, but also social distancing is strongly enforced, Guests who aren’t wearing their masks properly are removed from the parks, plexiglass is installed to ensure Guests separation in confined areas, and sanitization is readily available and frequently performed.
That being said, the sight of any crowd at Disney World during the pandemic could make some Guests want a more intimate Disney experience, and that is something Disney can offer through their resorts!
Staying on Disney property will always enhance your Disney World vacation and let you escape reality and live within the Disney bubble. For those who want to go to Disney World, but want to have less human interaction and ultimate social distancing, there are some Disney Resort rooms on property that do just that.
If you want a rustic, camping experience at Disney World while still having luxury Disney amenities, The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort is perfect for you! These individual cabins are surrounded by forest letting you feel like you really are lost in the woods.
Fort Wilderness is also a sprawling Disney Resort with so many offerings and experiences to be had without leaving its property. You can rent a bike, take a hike, fish, and so much more — plus, none of these are crowded activities and they allow you and your party to have an isolated experience.
Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
If you want to stick with the nature vibes but add more space and elevate the luxury, the Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are for you. This option is going to be the more expensive; however, the amenities and space make up for it. The Copper Creek Cabins sleep up to 8 adults, look out onto the peaceful waters which surround Wilderness lodge, and even have a hot tub on the screened-in porch of the cabins.
This means Guests do not even need to venture away from their room to enjoy a relaxing hot tub soak, and there truly has never been a more perfect time to have your own personal hot tub. Plus, Disney music plays when you turn on the jets, so if we’re on the fence about staying here, I am sure you are now ready to book!
Although isolated, the Copper Creek Cabins do share the grounds of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge which means Guests can venture out and explore everything the resort has to offer! Plus, if you do want to go to the parks, Wilderness Lodge has its own personal ferry boat which is currently operating with heavy social distancing measures in place — and depending on the time of day, you could be the only one riding it!
If you want to be isolated, surrounded by Seven Seas Lagoon, while staring at Cinderella Castle, the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Resort are for you. Here, Guests can get that Bora Bora feel while still being in Walt Disney World!
The Bungalows are stunning and feature a wrap-around deck with hanging chairs and a plunge pool, so Guests do not even have to walk to the pool to cool off. Also, now that the Electrical Water Pagent is back, Guests can sit on their deck in the evening and experience the first returning night time entertainment offering without worrying about bumping into another Guest.
Did you know you can stay in a treehouse when you are at Disney World? There really is no better way to escape the crowds than to hide out in a tree, and it doesn’t hurt that this treehouse is gorgeous!
The Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa has everything you and your party will need for a stay at Disney, and are hidden away so you really do feel like you have escaped the Disney World Guests. The theming here similar to our first two options with a more rustic vibe and is perfect for a large group.
Aside from The Cabins at Fort Wilderness, these other isolated rooms will be quite pricey; however, they do make up for that cost in space and amenities. By staying in one of Disney Resorts isolated rooms, Guests do not have to worry about shared AC units with others staying in their hotel (although Disney’s units do not mix air from other rooms), or having to walk by anyone in an enclosed hallway to get to their room. Each of these options gives Guests privacy and could be a new way to experience a Disney World vacation if you want to limit your park time due to the ongoing pandemic.
