My first point? If Disney was just for kids, thousands of people wouldn't get married there every year!

Plus there are some gorgeous places on property. I especially love the Boardwalk for adult-time. Very nice and quiet. You've got also got a lot of high-end restaurants like Victoria and Alberts, Artist Pointe, and many others.

I am one of the converted. It took my DH 12 years to convince me to go to Disneyland and then 3 more to go to Disneyworld. WDW is SOOO much better for couples without kids. I think the biggest thing for us was the resort. We stayed at PO-Riverside and it was amazing. The rooms were gorgeous, with romantic grounds and quiet place.

Our favourite thing to do is leave the parks by 11, eat an early lunch, head back to the hotel for a dip in one of the smaller pools, which will be deserted at that time of day, and then have some quiet time.

Also, if he's a car guy, what about Lights, Motors, Action and Test Track. I think he might really like those.

I'm a single guy and have been going to Disneyland for many years since High School, always by myself. Went to DW last year for the first time and had a blast as an adult. There are a lot of things to do like Drink Around the World in Epcot.

My husband is a true man's man and only went to WDW (on our honeymoon no less) to appease me. I was very careful to make sure our first trip together catered to his interests, knowing that if he didn't enjoy himself that we would probably not be back for a long time. Long story short, he is now a true fan. He just won't admit it to anyone but me . But whatever, as long as I get to keep going, I don't care if he keeps his secret to himself. I'll find some pictures of some of the things that we have enjoyed the past few trips. Starting with this...

We have been to The World several times over the past few years, most recently in December. Always with the kids.

My wife turned 50 a couple of days ago and I had been telling her all along that she could have a trip to wherever she wanted. I offered Hawaii, Vegas, a cruise, etc...

Without hesitstion, she chose to go back to Disney World. We leave in 3 weeks. There are so many cool things for adults that we had seen and heard of, that she wanted to go back and experience them without the kids along, in favor of any of those other trips.

Not a picture, but it definitely speaks volumes about the allure of Disney for adults!

So much fun. That is DH and I. You can do a tandem ride. It goes a lot higher than that, it was just the beginning when the picture was taken.

my husband was soooo skeptical about just the two of us doing wdw when i first went to him about going without the kids...so what i did was make him a great dinner (reminding him we could make reservations for great grown up meals) and then i handed him a photo of myself in a very adult cinderella costume (reminding him of what we could do when we took a mid-day break from the parks etc...) he now tells all his friends that you should NEVER go to disney with your kids that it kills all your disney fun lol. just a thought but it worked for me.

Can I borrow that idea?
DH doesn't need convincing... but I think he'd enjoy!

Drinking around the world shirts

We are heading to DW in June. My husband and a friend of ours plan to "drink around the world". I've seen people wearing tshirts and you check off each country after you've had a drink there. Is there somewhere to order these or do we have to design our own?? DH and friend really want to order shirts for the trip.

Thx!!
