There's an adjacent 18 hole "Fairway" course that resembles a minuature version of a traditional golf course.

Fantasia Gardens Review

by Regina Hinrichs

After a kajillion visits to WDW, I finally did something I always wanted to do, play a round of mini-golf on one of Disney's courses.

The obstacle has always been 'how do we get there?' There are no Disney 'mini-golf' buses so you're pretty much on your own.

Since we were staying at the Dolphin, we simply strolled over to Fantasia Gardens. If you're staying at any other resort, you can take theme park transportation to the Swan. Fantasia is right across the road from that hotel.  (If you want to play at 'Winter Summerland', your best bet is to take the Blizzard Beach bus.)

When you arrive, you have to decide which course you want to play on. The 'Fairways' look more like a regular golf course that got zapped by Wayne Szalinski from 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids.' We chose the 'Fantasia' course. After all, who can resist Mickey and Hippos?

We were very happy that our Disney Annual Pass gave us a 50% discount. That meant 3 adults playing for less than $18. (Try to go to a movie for that.)

There were a few people already playing. They do stagger the start times and we were on the course in about 10 minutes. (This was around 1pm on an afternoon in June.)

I teed up my pink golf ball and off I went. It's been years since I played and I forgot something important. You have to bend down a lot. (My apologies to anyone who got a rear view of me doing this that day.)

While the theming is very cute, one thing was very annoying. They kept playing the same little snippet of music from 'Fantasia' over and over and over again. It was something from Mozart or Beethoven (or some other dead guy.) Whatever it was, after awhile you wanted to take a swing at the speakers.

Other than that, we had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. During our play, one of those classic Florida afternoon 10 minute rain showers popped up. We ran for cover and went right back onto the course once it passed.

If you happen to be left handed like yours truly, there are two holes that will make you crazy, 6 and 17. I created a 'shortcut' with 6 and asked my right handed buddy for help with 17.

I have one regret, we should have done this on previous trips. Sure it was hot, but instead of standing on long lines and battling crowds, we were having fun. Could we have gone swimming? Of course, but this was something really different.

If you're visiting WDW and are looking for a break from the parks, give Disney mini-golf a try. While I haven't played 'Winter Summerland' yet, there is one 'surprise' at Fantasia Gardens that you won't forget.
