If you haven't tried the movie and dinner at DD movie theater, that is pretty fun also.

If you want to stay put at OKW, you can't beat the shrimp and grits or the BBQ pork chop at Olivia's either. Oh, now I am home sick. Lucky I will be there on Friday. We are just there for a night before cruising on the Fantasy. We have a group of DH family going and will be eating at Raglan Road.

Enjoy!
Went by that on the last trip over but had kids so we didn't stop....but I think we will next time!!!

Thanks for the tip!

Breakfast at Olivia's - banana bread French toast!
Pool & hot tub time
Massage at SSR - maybe mani/pedi too
Perhaps a stop at DTD to pick up lunch at Earl of Sandwich and treat myself to some Disney trinkets
A frozen adult beverage or two
Quality Kindle time

All great ideas here, but I didn't see anyone mention the sauna in the light house. It's right next to the main pool hot tub..very convenient.

and it's funny, I think about the sauna on the way in and out when I see the lighthouse but never when I'm by the pool! My son & his friends frequent it more than I ever have!

Take a trip to DD for a nice meal at Fulton's, then ice cream at G....then call DH (back home) and rub it in.....priceless.

He was horrified and jelous but took it in stride...I will take him in three weeks.

Don't feel sorry for DH, I spoil him rotten.

Paradiso is in DTD on the west side. I would guess that Fuego's is there also.

Ha! My DH and son will actually be camping when I'm away. There will be plenty to rub in...like the ability to sleep in an actual bed instead of a sleeping bag.

I agree with other posters! A facial or mani pedi, reading by the pool if the weather is nice followed by lunch at Olivia's (really good burger & cuban sandwich) Then a lovely boat ride to DTD for dinner and a movie!

We did this in February, my best and I! Our first 2 day vacation w/out the kids! Utter relaxation! And I fondly remember that brisket quesadilla!
Need to know, what dine in theater at DTD? Haven't heard about this yet.

It's an AMC but not connected to the AMC, in fact it's way on the other side of Pleasure Island. They have I think 6 or 8 movies playing! They serve drinks of any kind and also have a good menue from just popcorn, candy to full dinners and dessert!

It's called the AMC 24 Pleasure Island Dine-In Theater, take a peak at the menu on allears.net

I had really good shrimp tacos and my friend had chicken quesadilla's. On another occasion I had brisket quesadilla's. THey have wraps, burgers, panini's, pasta....

Takes movie viewing to a whole new high!

Fuego is right before Paradiso on Pleasure Island as you walk towards West Side, right around the bend after Ragland Road. Paradiso and Fuego are on either side of the DTD DVC Pleasure Island boat ramp ... Paradiso on your right as you walk up the ramp and Fuego to your left. Fuego is the cigar bar sibling of the Sosa Cigar Store over on West Side. Nice tables out front to sit and relax with a cigar and a cocktail and watch the crowd go by!
