So next fall my husband and I will be taking our first kidless, adult only vacation!! We are very excited about this. So my question to all of you is this. What are some must do things for us to do?
Trust me when I tell you that you have not experianced Walt Disney World until you do it sans children. I have been with my kids and my grandkids (I'm 65, wife is 64) multiple times. Starting 5 years ago my wife and I decided to do it alone, no kids. Halfway through the week my wife exclaimed that this was the best time she had ever had here and couldn't understand why. I too was thinking the same thing. Then it came to me, no kids. What I would suggest is this, pick a park for the morning, enjoy yourself, have lunch, take your time. Go back to the resort for some pool and rest time. Slow down. Enjoy yourself. Have fun. Then, head back to the park (I always get the park hopper so we do 2 parks every day) have dinner and enoy the night time festivities. Here is the best advice I can give you. You are so used to bypassing what the kids didn't want to see, standing in line for what the kids wanted to see, rushing back and forth with your fast passes, you never really took the time to look at things. Slow down and really look around you. We have been going alone now for 6 visits and we still find things we have never seen or done. You will just have to get used to the fact that you are enjoying these parks like never before. 137 more days and we're back.
Wonderful! I'll agree with previous posters, plan a relaxing Disney vacation. Don't plan to rush around all day into the night. Take afternoon breaks. Plan for just a few "must do's", whether they are attractions, meals, or activities, and let the rest of the time just be more spur of the moment. Stop in to an attraction you haven't done recently. Stop for a snack. Pause and people watch. Take time to absorb the details that make Disney special.So next fall my husband and I will be taking our first kidless, adult only vacation!!

DW and I also came to Disney later in life. We made many vacation visits before becoming Disney snowbirds. We now call our visits to WDW "winter walks enhanced by Disney". A day or two ahead we pick a park and I get a couple of FP's. We wander around, doing our FP's along the way.My wife and I became Dis People as adults... We do this often..
