Quiet Places to Relax at Walt Disney World

At some point during your Disney vacation, or even if you are just a local needing a break, it is nice to take some down time to find places to relax at Walt Disney World resorts. Most of the resorts offer little nooks and crannies for guests to relax in while staying there. Some of my favorite places are hidden between the deluxe resorts and villas. I love to enjoy a nice afternoon at resorts like Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Beach Club Villas, Old Key West, Animal Kingdom Lodge and Kidani Village, and the Villas and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

One of my absolute favorite spots to catch up with a good book or just relax in front of the fireplace is the Carolwood Pacific Room in the Villas at Wilderness Lodge. The leather rocking chairs would be in my house if I thought I could sneak off with them. This room is so peaceful! I love the touches from pictures of Walt riding the Carolwood Pacific miniature train in his backyard, to some of the actual cars from that train, and even the game tables families can gather around.

Another great location to get away from it all is at Disney’s Beach Club in the Solarium. It is tucked away just off the lobby near the Marketplace. The room is light and airy and has great couches and chairs in seating areas spread out around the room. This is a great room for meeting family and friends to chat outside of your resort room.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village, I adore the Library. It is comfy and welcoming, and rarely has any other guests around. In addition to being beautiful inside, the Library boasts a phenomenal view from it’s balcony overlooking the savanna. Also found here are some of the butterfly quotes that can be found around the resort. You can read more about them in my previous post here.

Papa’s Den, the library in the Hospitality House of Disney’s Old Key West Resort, is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy one of the many great books housed there. The decor is light and airy, similar to the Beach Club, but with Florida style. The books are all from authors who are from or wrote in Key West, like Ernest Hemingway, who the library is named in referenced to.

Just a couple of days ago I found a new spot at a resort where I’ve stayed at least five times already, Disney”s Wilderness Lodge. Since this is my favorite place to visit during Christmas time, I decided to take the elevator up to the sixth floor to get some pictures of the ginormous tree in the lobby. I looked across the lobby and saw what appeared to be a seating area I hadn’t noticed before just above the entrance doors. I went to the front side of the resort and found two areas on the sixth and fifth floors with leather chairs, sofas and fireplaces. These little nooks may be one of my new favorite places to relax and steal away to.
