While the theme parks are the main draw at Walt Disney World, its resort hotels offer plenty of recreational opportunities, as well. For example, active guests of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge looking for a place to work out or cool down after a long day can find a variety of fitness equipment and select spa treatments at “Sturdy Branches Health Club.” The facility also features a distinctly Disney detail: a reference to one of Walt Disney’s classic “Silly Symphony” cartoons.

Just in time for warm summer days, there’s a new space at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter that’s just for little ones who like to splash around and stay cool.
The new area is located next to the whimsical Doubloon Lagoon pool, so guests and their little ones can easily go back and forth between the two water-filled spots while staying at this resort.
Check out the Piano Player in the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. His version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is something so amazing. He also did a wonderful job on Toy Story’s ‘You’ve got a friend in me”.
