Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Teal. Enjoy the ride as we share with you our favorite activities outside of the parks.
When most people think of a Disney vacation, an image of crowded theme parks, enormously long lines, and $8 bottles of Coke probably comes to mind. And while that may not be too far off in the parks themselves, at Walt Disney World there are no shortage of great things to do without setting foot in a theme park. For example, Cirque du Soliel has a permanent show, one can drive a racecar at the Richard Petty Driving Experience, and you can even try you hand at fishing right outside the Magic Kingdom.
Naturally my favorite activity outside of the parks involves golf, only this one is of the miniature kind...
Disney has two miniature golf complexes, each with a pair of courses from which to choose. While three of the courses are just your average putt-putt experience, The Fairways course at Fantasia Gardens is unique in its design, which is a scaled down version of a real golf course. The swooping "fairways" of these greens mimic that of a real links, and there are even sand traps and a couple water hazards as well.
|It may look pretty, but trust me it's not.|
Despite its brilliance in design, The Fairways is insanely difficult. About 4 holes into the round, all happiness from your vacation will simply vanish. 12 holes in, your wife will remind you this is a family place and not to throw your club. And when the round is complete, you'll swear to every deity ever worshiped to never return to this forsaken place. So I've heard at least...none of this is based on personal experience.
|I'm smiling, but I'm cursing life on the inside|
So why do I love The Fairways course so much? Your guess is as good as mine...
