Disney Carriage Rides

Are you looking for something romantic to do on your next Disney vacation?  If you’re looking for something out of the parks, why not try a horse and carriage ride at one of the resorts?  Carriage rides are available at both Port Orleans Riverside and Fort Wilderness.

My husband and I had the pleasure of going on a carriage ride at Fort Wilderness and were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it.  The carriages are stationed across from Crockett’s Tavern.  When you board the carriage, your guide will ask you what route you’d like to take.  You can do a rustic route through the trails that connect Fort Wilderness to Wilderness Lodge, or you can take another route that will allow you to view the water on your ride.

Fort Wilderness really feels like worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the parks so it is a perfect way to spend a relaxing evening. You can even arrange to have champagne or wine on your ride. During the colder months, your driver will provide you with blankets.  If you visit during Christmas time, you can ask to go on a route that will let you view all of the decorations campers have used to decorate their RVs and campsites.

The ride lasts for 25 minutes and costs $45 (including tax). The one downside is that you cannot use a credit card, but you can use your Disney room key (or cash!) The first carriage leaves at 6 P.M. and the last one leaves at 9:30.  During certain times of the year, you can time it right so that you can view the fireworks while you are on your ride.
