Winter Summerland Miniature Golf; Magic Kingdom; Casey’s Corner (Counter Service Lunch); Citricos (Signature Dining); Wishes
August 27th, 2014
The slackness on this trip report from me has been insane! We’re a week from going back, and I’ve still not finished last year’s report…. But here I am with the penultimate day, and to be honest, there isn’t too much to say, as all we did was play miniature golf, have some hot dogs at Magic Kingdom whilst watching the parade, and then have dinner at Citricos, followed by watching Wishes from the boat dock at Grand Floridian. So this day on the trip report will be mostly photographs, (when is it not?) and not much in the way of words!
Winter Summerland was the miniature golf course for this year (last year we did Fantasia Gardens). There are two different courses here – Winter, and Summer. We played the winter course, which we could do for free with our park tickets. It is open daily from 10am to 11pm
Winter Summerland is located right next door to Blizzard Beach, which we had been to earlier in the holiday. We must have had a bit of a lie in, as we didn’t get there until around midday, and spent an hour going around the course (judging by the time stamp on my photos). I remember it being pretty empty, which is always nice as you don’t feel rushed as you work your way through each of the holes.
As always, the theming was brilliant, fun, and weird to see snow castles and snow men in the Florida sunshine!
There are 18 holes, and each on has a little sign, with a rhyme to tell you how to complete the hole – some are easier than others, but all are a lot of fun!
I love that Disney juxtapose the garish and bright, with the natural surroundings! We saw several lizards, and of course there are all the plants and trees.
From hole 15 you move undercover (good to get out of the heat!) and into a lodge decorated for Christmas, which I thought was awesome!
You even get a showering of snow at the end of the course! I can’t remember who won this round of miniature golf at Winter Summerland, not that it matters now – it’s all about the family fun!
We stopped off in the restrooms (aptly name, Snowmen and Sleighbelles) before heading back to the car to drive to Magic Kingdom.
