Walt Disney World Miniature Golf

Copyright - The Walt Disney CompanyAlmost Disney's 'Forgotten Attractions', these two superb Miniature Golf Courses -
Winter Summerland Miniature Golf and Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf; offer a great introduction to Walt Disney World

Especially if you have just flown across the Atlantic on your first trip and/or for first time Disney Visitors.

A round of Miniature Golf, on the first full day of your vacation, is an easy way in to a hectic few weeks.

It's a nice and easy introduction to Disney also. Wow, if they can do mini-golf this well, what about the rest?

A' round' should take 1.5 hours or so. Have a soda and a snack half way round...

It also gives you an idea of the size of Walt Disney World, just finding these two courses will take you past Hotels and Amenities one after the other...

Hint: Try visiting late in the day. Miniature golf is less hurried in the cool of the evening...

Personal favourite- Winter Summerland... Possibly because it's not themed after any specific movie, it just has a real 'nice feel' to it.

 

Winter Summerland
Miniature Golf Course

As a extension of the themes at the adjacent Blizzard Beach complex, Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course offers two themed 18-hole golfing experiences as the summer retreat for Santa and his elves. Here you'll find tropical palm trees adorned with ornaments and other interactive features such as a squirting snowman, a sleeping Santa, an old lodge made out of logs and a challenging a hole that you'll have to putt the ball between two model trains that circle a fully decked out pine tree, strung with Christmas ornaments.

Picture stops include Santa in his sleigh and a surfing Santa, and the conclusion of your experience here, you'll also receive an E-mail message from Santa via the the Winternet.

Disney's Winter Summerland is also Disney's newest Miniature golf Course so if you feel they've done a good job on creating the Fantasia golf course near Disney-MGM Studios you're probably in for a real treat at the Winter Summerland course.

Other Information:

Fantasia Gardens
Miniature Golf Course

Located across from Disney Studios, Fantasia Gardens is an 18-Hole Miniature Golf Course complete with a theme that's taken right out of the Disney classic "Fantasia." The course comes complete with animated statues, sound effects, music and other challenging obstacles such as the memorable segment from the movie that's characterized by the Hippo and Alligator (You remember them, don't you? They danced together in the movie). And let's not forget about the star of Walt Disney World and of the Movie "Fantasia," he's here too, and perhaps he'll even be more recognizable to our viewers as ''The Sorcerers Apprentice." Here, you'll not only enjoy the characterizations of the marching broomsticks from this part of the movie, but also some dazzling water effects.

Dancing fountains, a waterfall, animations, music and a 40-ft mountain, it's all here at Fantasia Gardens. A fun day, and a relatively inexpensive one at about $10.00 per person, per course...

As part of the Fantasia Gardens complex, there's also Fantasia Fairways. Here, you'll find more of a traditional 18-Hole Golf Course, but more so in the miniature. You'll still have the water hazards, the sand traps and the challenging contours that you would expect to find at any Golf Course. Most holes are less than 75 feet in length and it's beautiful floral arrangements makes it a perfect extension of Fantasia Gardens. Although a little more skill may be involved, it's still great place for the novice, the avid golfer or the entire family. Besides, how many Golf Courses are there where the whole family can just relax, goof off and have fun.

Other Information:

Both Fantasia Gardens and Fantasia Fairway are located in the area of the Swan and Dolphin Resort Hotels. Use these two properties and the Disney MGM-Studios as your landmarks. Separate Admission required for each course. Figure on about $10.00 per each adult (10 years or older) or $8.00 per child (3-9 years of age).
