Disney World has so many activities to keep your family entertained beyond the gates of their theme parks. Fortunately for the cheapskates, many of their entertainment options are far less than the price of park tickets. You won’t be entertained as long, but you can certainly can fill up a morning or an afternoon. Mini golf, anyone?!
Disney World has two different miniature golf courses on property with prices under $20 per person. Compared to other Disney prices, that’s a steal.
Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf
At Fantasia Gardens, you and the kids will putt your way through five scenes featuring tutu-clad hippos, marching broomsticks and pirouetting ostriches. This course is perfect for families and beginner golfers.
Fairways Miniature Golf is more challenging. Resembling a traditional golf course built on a miniature scale, this course emphasizes skill over chance. Sand traps, bunkers, water hazards and sloping greens make the Fantasia Fairways Miniature Golf Course an exciting challenge, where par-3 and par-5 holes range in length from 63 to 109 feet long.
Both courses are located in the Epcot Resort area by the WDW Swan Hotel. Prices are $12 for children ages 2-9 and $14 for everyone over age 10.
Winter Summerland Miniature Golf
Situated right next to Blizzard Beach Water Park is Winter Summerland. The elves built two distinctly different 18–hole golf experiences: a sand course named “Summer” and a snow course named “Winter.”
On the Summer Course, putt among surfboards, sand castles and ornaments hanging from palm trees, peppermint-striped inner tubes, snapping clam shells and a melting snowman. Disney advises you try not to wake sleeping Santa buried in the sand!
On the Winter Course, watch out for Squirty the Snowman, who sprays water at golfers when golf balls pass beneath him. Holiday themed obstacles include giant peppermints, hockey sticks and the drawbridge of a fantastical, melting castle. The courses combine for the last holes, and after sinking the last putt on Hole 18, you will receive a special message from Santa Claus, courtesy of the WinterNet.
The courses are located next to Blizzard Beach water Park. Prices are $12 for children ages 2-9 and $14 for everyone over age 10.
Ask about a second round of golf for 50% off on the same day.
Disney World Annual and Seasonal Passholders receive 15% off miniature golf for the passholder and three of their guests.
Disney Vacation Club Members receive 15% off miniature golf for members and up to three guests.
Magic Your Way Ticket ticket holders with the Water Park Fun & More option can use one or more of your “visits” for one round of miniature golf at either golf course before 4:00 p.m.
Cheapskate tip: Because the cost of mini golf is so low compared to other ticket prices, like the water parks, this wouldn’t be the best use of your money.
If you purchase a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, these include a voucher valid for one round of miniature golf at either golf courses. You will receive one voucher per room.
Purchase a Magic Your Way Premium or Platinum vacation package, and you will receive unlimited miniature golf at no additional charge.
Miniature golf for under $15 per person. In terms of Disney World pricing, that’s a pretty good deal.
We have a full list of activities for a day where you don’t have park tickets, we call this a “free day,” including activities that start at completely free and go up to fairly expensive experiences. There’s something here for all budget levels.
