While we originally weren’t expecting any of Disney World’s miniature golf courses to reopen any time soon, Disney always likes to keep us on our toes!
Previously, they stated mini-golf would most-likely be unavailable to resort guests during Disney World’s phased reopening while Standard golf and FootGolf would remain open, but like so many things right now, it appears they changed their minds!
Although Winter Summerland at Blizzard Beach remains closed, Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf has recently reopened! Let’s check out the course to see what safety modifications they’ve made!
First of all, you’ll need to have your temperature taken to make your way onto the fairway! Face masks must also be worn by all guests (ages two and up) for the entire duration of their stay.
If there’s a line at the temperature checkpoint, there’s some covered and uncovered seating along with water provided for guests. Benches have socially distanced while some seating areas may have “not available” markers if they’re closed off for guests.
Just like Disney Springs, AdventHealth workers are performing the temperature screenings using touchless thermometers.
There are two family-friendly 18-hole courses at Fantasia Gardens. The Gardens Course is open daily from 10AM to 10PM while the Fairway Course (the more-challenging course) opens a 10AM and closes an hour earlier at 9PM.
We were allowed to choose which course we wanted to play, and since it’d been a while since we putted (although we’ve been watching lots of Holey Moley), we went with the Gardens Course!
Health and Safety reminder signage was featured predominantly throughout the course played and we noticed most of the trash cans had their lids propped open.
Some of the holes had their own portable hand washing stations, too! They’re similar to the ones we’ve already seen at Disney World where you pump the water with your foot.
Of course, we had to take some time to appreciate all the scenic beauty Fantasia Gardens has to offer! It’s almost like stepping foot inside the movie at times!
We love all the sculptures of hippos, alligators, and elephants! Not to mention each hole is just challenging-enough without making us wanna pull a Happy Gilmore. 😉
Getting a hole-in-one at Fantasia Gardens is our agenda for the day, so you know where to find us now that mini-golf is back in play at Disney World!
Disney World’s new McDonald’s is finally open and it has got SOLAR POWER! See what the new-and-improved Mickey D’s looks like HERE!
