Quiet Spots at Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World is fun, fast and exciting! But sometimes you just need a few minutes to sit quietly, unwind, relax and catch your breath. Here are a few spots you’ll find throughout the Walt Disney World Resort to give you those few precious moments of peace and quiet.

Magic Kingdom

Tom Sawyer Island
Featuring trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and shady benches you can get to via boat from Frontierland. It’s the perfect place for a stroller nap, quiet walk or just to get away from the bustle of the Magic Kingdom.

Hidden Cove on Main Street USA
Sounds crazy, since Main Street is always super crowded. But if you are walking down the street, about halfway down on the right, there is a tiny little alley just after Uptown Jewelers, you will find a quiet little nook.


All of my suggestions for Epcot are in the World Showcase.

Victoria Gardens features a totally charming walkway of gorgeous rolling hills, waterways and flowers. Look for a nearby bench or just take a slow walk with a stroller and enjoy the relative quiet.

As you enter the pavilion, look to your left. There is a beautiful koi pond, and just behind it there are stairs to a quiet spot to sit and eat.

Future World entrance to World Showcase (Showcase Plaza)
Keep walking straight (between Port of Entry and Disney Traders) and you’ll find a lot of open space with a beautiful view of the World Showcase Lagoon.

Animal Kingdom

Wildlife Express Train
This is a perfect way to rest and cool off with kids while still taking in some of the sights at the park. You’ll see behind-the-scenes in Harambe, Africa, while the kids snooze.

Flame Tree BBQ
Go through the restaurant to the outdoor seating. It is pretty secluded, and never as busy as inside.

Hollywood Studios

Voyage of the Little Mermaid
Hollywood Studios is filled with shows. Most shows are outdoors, but the Voyage of the Little Mermaid is an indoor, air conditioned theater that is great to relax and cool down.

Resort Hotels

This is my favorite way to take a break!

If you are in Magic Kindom, hop on the Monorail and stop at Disney’s Grand Floridian. Check out the lobby, grab a drink at the Enchanted Rose, and listen to the jazz band or grand piano player in the last afternoon and evenings.

If you are in Epcot or Hollywood Studios, walk or take the boat to Disney’s Boardwalk Inn. Tons of shopping and dining, and far less crowded than the parks!

If you are in Animal Kingdom, take the bus to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Enjoy the stunning lobby, grab a drink at Victoria Falls, or go out onto the lookout and check out the animals.
