If you want a break from the four main theme parks in Walt Disney World, but don't fancy going to one of the two water parks, then why not try Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf. It's two 18 hole crazy golf course, side by side but one with a Winter theme and the other with a Summer theme.
The story goes that late one Christmas Eve, as Santa was flying back to the North Pole, he discovered snow in Florida. After surveying the strange sight, he decided to build a vacation destination for his off-duty elves--a Winter Summerland. The sight of snow could be due to the fact that Winter Summerland is built next to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. (Please feel free to read my earlier review of Blizzard Beach).
On the "Summer" course you'll see surfboards and sandcastles and melting snowmen, along with candy striped inner tubes and palm trees decked with ornaments. Be careful not to wake Santa who's asleep buried in the sand.
On the "Winter" course beware of the squirting snowman, the candy canes and the hockey sticks and the drawbridge that leads to a melting castle.
Basically both the course are the same, but just with a different theme Summer or Winter but they both come together for the last hole, where you'll hear a message from Santa himself. This a a great place to get away from the crowds in the main parks as it's generally not too busy. It's a fun way to spend a couple of hours putting your ball round 18, some quite tricky, holes. However it is only open seasonally so it's best to check before you travel to see if it will be open during your visit to Walt Disney World on the official website.
If you like crazy golf, then you'll love this.
