We’re just a few days into 2020. Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions yet? Whether you are still thinking about it or you know exactly what you want to improve in the New Year, Orlando Fun Tickets has compiled a list of ways to fulfill some of the popular resolutions right here in Orlando.
One of the more popular New Year’s Resolutions is to begin or increase exercise. If moving your body more is on the top of your resolutions list there isn’t a more fun way to fulfill that than at Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando. Both parks and their resorts offer running paths to get in a good cardio session. Just a few include Disney’s All-Star Resort, The Boardwalk Canal Run at Epcot, Crescent Lake run at Epcot, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Saratoga Resort, and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort.
Universal Orlando offers several walking paths at on-site hotels with mile markers so you can keep track of your progress. Speaking of running, Walt Disney World invites you to run more with their Walt Disney World Marathon in January and Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon in November, and Universal Orlando’s Running Universal Race in February. And even if you aren’t in to running you can easily up your walking game walking around these parks for a day.
Pump Some Iron
If your New Year’s Resolution is to gain some more muscle, Universal Orlando offers some amazing fitness facilities at their hotels. The resort’s fitness centers offer a wide range of equipment including treadmills, exercise bikes, stair masters, elliptical machines and more. Each on-site hotel includes a fitness facility so you can pump some iron no matter where you stay. Walt Disney World also offers workout facilities with a wide range of cardiovascular machines and free weights. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Disney's Boardwalk Villas, Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Contemporary, Disney's Grand Floridian, The Villa's at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Villas all offer fitness facilities.
With all of the different dietary needs these days it’s pretty easy to stick to healthier eating at Orlando theme parks. All offer plant-based, gluten free and vegan options. Additionally, guests can swap fries with other side options like fresh veggies or fruit. And you can always reach for grilled or roasted over deep fried. Universal Orlando offers their menus online so you can browse and decide before you even get to the restaurant. Also, it’s worth mentioning that sit-down restaurants will offer more variety, which in turn means more healthier options.
Spending More Time with Family
Make more family memories in 2020 with some of Orlando’s best parks and attractions. You can never go wrong with fun family time at Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, LEGOLAND Florida or Busch Gardens Tampa. But there are also some other family-friendly attractions that will help you bond as a family including The Crayola Experience, ZooTampa at Lowry Park, The Florida Aquarium, Wild Florida Wildlife Park and more.
Maybe you have decided 2020 will be your year of traveling the world. If so, make sure you visit Epcot this year for any one (or all) of their international festivals. Starting in January celebrate art, entertainment and food from around the globe during Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Then in March, see what’s budding with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival brings you the tastes of countries around the world beginning in November and of course The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays teaches guests about the many holiday traditions of the world. In between festivals, make sure you tour the many World Showcase countries for more knowledge of their traditions.
