One day in Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphins.
It's not in WDW but it's wonderful.

Archery details:
http://wdwpionears.com/website/archery-lessons.aspx

As I think about it, archery has fallen down the list a little; my son did a week of target sports at his summer camp last year, and we bought him a recurve bow, target, etc. for the holidays this year.

One more thing came to mind: Dine with an Imagineer. I'm waiting for my kids to be a little older for that one.

Thank you. I just watched the video on the link posted by OP. My only concern is that we are two adults, just a friend and myself. I'd feel a little funny that it's mostly kids....

The early morning fishing trip that goes into World Showcase.
My son, his uncle, his best friend and his Dad, who love to fish, really enjoyed the Bass Fishing Excursion! Since buying into DVC, we try to find non-park, relaxing things to do and this was a winner. You can have a group of up to 5, they provide water and the fishing gear! Etc. They've talked about doing it again!

We all did the archery lessons when they were younger, I don't think we ever laughed so much!

2 years ago they also did the surfing lessons at Typhoon Lagoon, talk about wiped out afterwards!

We've done the Illumination Cruise under the bridge at Epcot, next I'd like to try the other cruise.

This summer the boys both want to try para-sailing!

We, 4 adults, did it with our kids and their friends! Talk about laugh, let's just say, in an apocalyptic crisis, I will not be part of the hunting team. Don't be self conscious, go and have fun!

Have you done Splitsville (Bowling) at DTD?
Do you go off-site?
If yes, try touring the Gaylord Palms Resort, one of the "other" theme parks, or maybe a shopping day at one of the malls.

Happy planning!
Was going to say these 2 exact things! There's also driving a fast/race car at the Richard Petty driving experience...my DS really wants to do that someday.

Is miniature golf just for kids?

The archery lesson is lots of fun for everyone and the instructors are the usual fun-loving CM's.

We have twice had "CM in control" days or "CiC" (we pronunce it "sick") days where the next CM you see when you exit an attraction or enter the gates etc. tells you what you should do next (as long as it's not a duplicate). It's more fun than it sounds and the CM's have fun with it. Take your picture with them and ask for their autographs and you will have a day of memories. You might be surprised what they say for you to do isn't what you might expect. We had the most fun with this at Epcot. Got a henna tattoo and did some cultural things I might not have ever done without their suggestions. If you get tired, you can always stop but I'm betting you don't.

That's such a cool idea! I think I'll try it on my next solo trip.
