Walt Disney World might be all about the attractions, but they have also sneaked in a few playgrounds in Walt Disney World. My kids love playing on the playgrounds and it is a great break from the crowds.
Located under Splash Mountain is a small play area for little ones. This is a great place for junior to play while the older kids ride Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain. To get to this playground, just go under Splash Mountain like you are heading towards the restroom. It is on the right side.
On Tom Sawyer’s Island, there is a small play structure at the top of the hill. There are also some nice benches for the parents to sit while the kdis run off more energy.
There is also a playground type area in the queue to Winnie the Pooh. And your kiddos can play in it even if you aren’t in line for the ride.
Located in the exit area of Mission Space is a play gym for kiddos (like what you would find at a Fast Food restaurant). To get to this play area, you will go in the exit of the ride (it’s a gift shop) and walk back towards the right side.
This park’s playground is also an attraction. The Boneyard Playground is the best playground in all of Disney. It features a large area for the kids to run, climb, slide, dig, etc. And it is manned by Cast Members. So grab a seat where you can see the one and only exit to the playground and let the kids run wild while you have a nice breather.
The following resorts all have playgrounds and you are allowed to play on them even if you aren’t staying at the resort. So if you want to take a break from the parks but don’t want to go all the way back to your hotel, just hop on a resort bus or a monorail and head to a Disney Resort, grab a bite to eat and let the kids play on the playground.
