As I am sure you can imagine, I often end up having a lot of unusual conversations about Disney with my friends and co-workers. When you spend so much time engrossed in the magic, it stands to reason that sometimes, the more peculiar topics will come to light. Most recently, I was chatting with a friend of mine about making his return to Disney with his wife, and he asked me a question that really made me stop and think. Naturally, my first instinct was to bring the topic here to you, our DIS Community, to see what you think.
“Are there any adults-only Disney resorts?” he says to me with a clueless yet hopeful expression painted across his face. Of course, my first instinct was, no, that is a stupid question; then I paused. Is it a stupid question? I’m wondering what market there would be for an adult-only resort. I am so embedded in my motherhood after sixteen years that I can’t fathom a world where this would be an option or when I would opt for it, even if it were. However, maybe it isn’t as silly as it first sounded. After all, there are adults-only areas of cruise ships and hotels like Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa; why couldn’t there be an adults-only resort where everything within was tailored specifically to a more mature audience?
I’m not convinced this one is for me, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Would you stay in a Disney Resort that was still themed appropriately but only accessible for an adult market?
