Cirque du Soleil: La NoubaLast week I introduced you to three off-the-beaten path ways to enjoy something extra at the Walt Disney World Resort: water parks, miniature golf, and the monorail. As promised, here are three more “secret” Disney World attractions off the beaten path:


DisneyQuest.
From the official Disney web page: “Create your own adventures in this one-of-a-kind indoor interactive Theme Park bursting with games that give “state-of-the-art” new meaning. Discover five floors exploding with cutting-edge technology, virtual reality and 3-D experiences — all fueled by Disney innovation and imagination.” You must purchase a pass to enter Disney Quest; it’s not included in your Park Pass or Park Hopper. If you have a tween or teen or just love video games, this is the place for you. There is a Cheesecake Factory in DisneyQuest, but you have to pay the DQ admission to access the restaurant.

Cirque du Soleil: La Nouba.
Located in DownTown Disney (DTD). I have not personally seen this Cirque show, but I have seen many others. I don’t think you can go wrong with a Cirque show if you’re looking for an adult evening out. I’ve heard this one may be a bit dark for children under 8, but I can’t verify.

Fort Wilderness
is part of The Wilderness Lodge and offers a plethora of fun activities:

  • campfire movies
  • horse barn
  • petting zoo
  • hay rides (especially fun in October!)
  • playground

Fort Wilderness also offers RV parking and cabins for those who like to rough it a bit more while on vacation.I have one more set of “secret” Disney World attractions for you. Tune in next week! In the mean time, check out the Disney World attractions I turned you on to last week.
