They just keep coming! We’re excited to share the news that another Walt Disney World experience has reopened! From restaurants like Casey’s Corner reopening to ride experiences like the return of the Haunted Mansion Stretching Room, if seems like Disney is on a roll with reopening experiences after months-long closures due to COVID. Well, we’re thrilled to see another experience has opened their doors.
Calling all miniature golf fans! Winter Summerland Miniature Golf has reopened for you to enjoy during your Walt Disney World vacation. Winter Summerland provides a dose of the holidays right in the middle of Florida. The story goes: “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. Seeing that the only thing Winter Summerland lacked was a golf course, Santa and his elves divided into 2 camps, one that enjoyed the warm Florida sun and another that preferred the snow and cold of the North Pole. The elves then built 2 distinctly different 18-hole golf experiences: a sand course named “Summer” and a snow course named ‘Winter.'”
There are two courses to explore:
The Summer Course: Enjoy fun in the sun at the Summer Course amid surfboards, sandcastles and ornaments hanging from palm trees. Deck the balls as you putt around peppermint-striped inner tubes, snapping clamshells and a melting snowman. Don’t wake sleeping Santa buried in the sand!
The Winter Course: Putt your way to the North Hole on the Winter Course; but watch out for Squirty the Snowman! This “jolly, happy soul” sprays water at golfers when golf balls pass beneath him. Merry obstacles include giant peppermints, hockey sticks and the drawbridge of a fantastical, melting castle. The courses combine for the last holes, and after sinking the last putt on Hole 18, golfers receive a special message from Santa Claus, courtesy of the WinterNet!
We’re especially big fans of taking time to enjoy a little miniature golf while visiting the Walt Disney World. It’s a great opportunity to take the family away from crowds and enjoy fun family time together. Ready to plan your visit? Walk-ups are welcome or you may book a tee time for the next day or beyond by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.
