How to Celebrate Father's Day at Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World Resort is the place to be to celebrate Dad this Father’s Day.

Adrenaline Junkie Dad:

Celebrate Father's Day with fun-filled and adrenaline inducing attractions at Walt Disney World.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom:

  • For the ultimate attraction, take Dad to Pandora – The World of Avatar to experience the best attraction on property -Avatar Flight of Passage! Fly on the back of a banshee and soar between floating mountains in this one-of-a-kind journey.

  • If you're looking for a roller coaster, head to Asia for a thrilling, high-speed climb into the Himalayas on Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain


  • Car aficionados must experience Test Track Presented by Chevrolet, where you design a virtual concept vehicle and take it through a series of tests and end with a high-octane spin.

  • Head over to Soarin’ Around the World for a hang-gliding adventure above some of the most breathtaking wonders the world has to offer

Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

  • If you want to rock out while on a roller coaster head to Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, where Dad can relive his rock star days in a super-stretch limo featuring songs by Aerosmith.


Sports Dad

If your dad is more of a sports fan head over to the ESPN Club at my favorite entertainment spot, Disney’s Boardwalk. With nearly 100 video monitors, each featuring global satellite feeds, you can watch virtually any televised game while enjoying a pub-style menu. The menu includes popular items such as wings, loaded tots and craft-beer batter fish & chips. So buy dad a cold one and take in the best in televised sports entertainment—including a 108-square-foot video wall!

A Round of (Foot) Golf with Dad:

If you want to actually play sports, what's better than hitting the course with Dad?  This Father’s Day, golfers 18 years-old and under play for free with Dad at all Walt Disney World Golf courses.

And for the very first time, Walt Disney World Golf, operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, is proud to offer the game of FootGolf on Disney’s Oak Trail golf course. The 18-Hole FootGolf course is certified by the American FootGolf League (AFGL). For more information, visit


Foodie Dad:

Is your dad a foodie like mine? If so, then let's discuss the best places to grab some Father's Day treats.

Head to Disney Springs which has over 50 food and beverage locations, including five restaurants by James Beard Award-winning chefs.

  • If you are ready for a meal fit for a champ stop by Paddlefish. This on-the-water restaurant just won the 2018 Reader's Choice award for Best Seafood Restaurant in Orlando! The restaurant will serve a special “T-Bone & Tail” Father’s Day meal – a 20oz T-Bone and cold water lobster tail with a classic béarnaise sauce for $59. If you would rather try to the award-winning seafood, then get ready to indulge with a specialty seafood boil or indulge in the king crab straight from Dutch Harbor, AK.

  • The Boathouse is the only place in the world where Dads can hop aboard a vintage Amphicar that drives on land and enter the waters of Lake Buena Vista with a splash. After you worked up an appetite head inside and try oysters or shrimp from the raw bar or split a dockside bucket with fries.

  • Families can treat Dads to tasty drinks carefully paired with delicious dishes in the new Discover Bourbon at Disney Springs experience. Whether you’re a bourbon aficionado, or just enjoy sipping and savoring new drinks, this trail is perfect for you. Each of these drinks has been paired with a delicious and complimentary dish.

  • For a sweet snack, Amorette’s Patisserie will offer dipped “Tuxedo” strawberries and special treats honoring Dad. The treats will be available June 14-17, 2018.
