Miniature Golf – Disney Style

Walt Disney World is so much more than just theme parks. There are also two water parks, world class golf courses, the ESPN Wide World of Sports, and two miniature golf courses, just to name a few of the options you have for entertainment away from the 4 main theme parks.

In this post I’m going to focus on the miniature golf courses. Both of them are elaborately themed (we would expect nothing less from Disney!) and fun for the whole family!

First we have Fantasia Gardens and Fairways

Here you will find two 18 hole courses themed after the Disney film Fantasia. The Garden side is more child friendly with whimsical designs including dancing alligators, hippos in tu-tus, and some holes that resemble musical instruments like a piano

Of course you will find the Sorcerer and his Apprentice as well. Make sure you watch out for the broomsticks and their water buckets!

The Fairways side is geared more towards the serious golfer. This side has sand traps, bunkers, water hazards and sloping greens. This side is more challenging and could be frustrating for inexperienced golfers and children.

Fantasia Gardens and Fairways is located in the Boardwalk area of Walt Disney World, across the street from the Swan hotel. To get here you can take a bus from the parks to the Swan and then just walk over to the course.

The other miniature golf course is called Winter Summerland and is located next to Blizzard Beach. To get here all you need to do is take a bus from your resort to Blizzard Beach and then just walk over.

Winter Summerland also has two 18 hole courses. Here you can join Santa, his elves and some Disney characters for some fun at Santa’s off-season retreat. One course is a tropical summer Christmas and on the other side you will find snow in Florida, just like you find at Blizzard Beach water park. Both courses are designed with the entire family in mind.

The cost for the mini golf courses is currently $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 3-9. If you have the water park fun & more option on your magic your way park tickets you can use one of your ‘entries’ for a round of miniature golf, but it has to be used prior to 4pm and you cannot play two rounds at the same park, in the same day.
