Take a Day Off from the Parks and try Archery
There is so much to do and see at Disney World, but often people want an element of peace and quiet attached to their vacation. A great way to do this is to take some time off from theme park touring and explore one of the many other activities Disney has to offer.
One of the things that is offered that many people do not know about is Archery! Any aspiring Merida or Robin Hood ages six and up can participate.
Archery lessons usually take place Thursday through Saturday at Fort Wilderness Campground, though I was informed they have offered this activity daily throughout August due to popular demand! Archery is offered from 2:45-4:15 only and it is recommend that you have reservations. Reservations are limited to about ten guests. Once you have made your reservation simply arrive 15 minutes early at the bike barn at Fort Wilderness to check in. You will be escorted to the archery range.
During your 90 minutes on the shooting range you will learn how to shoot the bow and arrow and receive tips from the professional staff. You will have plenty of time to take aim and practice your skills. You need not have any previous archery experience to participate.
The cost of this activity is $25 plus tax per person.
My Tip: For a leisurely day, take the morning off to relax by the pool before heading out to Fort Wilderness. Pair your afternoon archery lesson with a reservation at Trails End Restaurant for dinner. After you get your fill on their delicious food you can take the boat to the Magic Kingdom to enjoy a few rides before heading back to your hotel. You will feel relaxed a refreshed having taken the early part of the day slowly!
