Some Quiet Spots Restful at Walt Disney World

Last updated on March 30th, 2020 at 09:11 pm

Here are 10+ places that I have found around Walt Disney World Parks that allow you to rest. They are out of the way and semi quiet, some are down right peaceful. Find your spot to take a break and rest at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Find Some Quiet restful spots at Walt Disney World. Relaxing, quiet, and restful aren’t always a thing at Disney Parks. The bucket list trips from far and wide are often fast and hard.

Every once in awhile, even the most organized Disney guest needs a break from the sound, lights and other stimuli. Florida residents with Annual Passes definitely have an advantage here.

Whether your child has an issue with overstimulation or simply needs quiet time to recharge, you can factor in quiet time at each of Disney’s theme parks with a little planning.

In order to be considered relaxing and refreshing, an appropriate spot must quiet, shaded and provide seating (the floor doesn’t count).

While dining settings and restrooms cover these three particular criteria, we are looking for something a little more restful and easy on the eyes.
