This 36-hole miniature golf course provides an elaborately themed outing complete with the attention to detail you’d expect to find at Disney. You have a choice of the snow-clad Florida Winterland course, or the more challenging tropical-holiday themed Summerland Course. On either side, you can putt among interactive elements featuring Santa and his off-duty elves.
Winterland Summerland manages to feel like it’s “out of the way,” while still being easily accessible. Tucked away in the Blizzard Beach parking lot, it’s easy to hop a bus to the water park from any Disney Resort. You’ll enjoy shady spots around the Winterland course on a hot, sunny day, and both courses are fun to play in the evening when temperatures drop and crowds thin out. You’ll find guests of all ages here, and you can generally expect that a lot of them will be teenagers.
Another option for Miniature Golf is the original 36-hole course at Disney World, Fantasia Gardens. Older teens and adults (or more serious golfers) are more likely to enjoy these challenging courses. If you’ve seen the movie Fantasia, you’ll recognize the classic Disney theming. Fantasia Gardens tends be easier to get to in the evening because of the Boardwalk area’s more abundant transportation options.
Located near the Crossroads Shopping Center, Pirate’s Cove is about 1 mile from Downtown Disney. Pirate’s Cove has two courses, giving you a choice of playing 18 or 36 holes.
There is a pirate theme throughout, and the courses are well maintained, with waterfalls and lakes. This means a lot of lost golf balls and a lot of stairs to climb! But Pirate’s Cove is open late, and very convenient to guests staying in hotels in the Downtown Disney area.
