Everything to Know About Mini-Golf at Disney World

by Leap on August 20, 2023 12 Orlando

Mini Golf at Disney World – PinterestThe Frog Family loves to take time on any trip to find a miniature golf course. We have so many scoring cards saved over the years (Tad and I often compete for first but sometimes it's Flora and Lily who get the coveted hole-in-one). So of course we had to include mini-golf on our Walt Disney World trips! We always like taking a non-park day (or even our arrival day) to relax at the pool and do some shopping and dining at Disney Springs, so a round of putt-putt at one of the Disney World mini-golf locations fits right into our plans.

With two distinctly themed locations each with two separate 18-hole courses, there's plenty of putting to be had at the most magical place on Earth! Read on for our par-fect guide to Disney World mini-golf.

Guide to Mini-Golf at Disney World

There are two miniature golf locations at Walt Disney World — Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland — each with two 18-hole courses. Prices are $19 per adult and $12 per child, plus tax. Both courses are typically open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

If you purchase a Park Hopper Plus Option or a Base with Water Parks and Sports ticket through Undercover Tourist, you can use the ticket for either of the miniature golf courses.

Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf Course

Putt your way through a whimsical setting with Fantasia Gardens. See marching broomsticks, dancing ostriches and twirling hippos inspired by the classic animated film, "Fantasia." This course for all ages is a Frog Family favorite!

Up for a challenge? Try the Fairways side. This course is a true miniaturized version of a traditional golf course with sand traps, bunkers and water hazards. Tad and I were happy to even get par on most of the holes (but nothing all these years of mini-golf training couldn't handle). There's typically less of a wait for the Fairways side if you are up for it (though note that the Fairways course closes one hour prior to the Fantasia Gardens course).

Since the Fairways course is more challenging, we recommend the Gardens side if playing with young children or wanting a more leisure course.

Disney World Mini-Golf - Tee Off Near Ostrich

Fantasia Gardens is located next to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and close to Disney's BoardWalk and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Due to its convenient location and popularity, there can often be a bit of a wait, but there are plenty of tables to sit at and sometimes even games such as corn hole and Connect 4 to play in the meantime.

Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course

Winter Summerland Mini Golf – Putting at ice castle

Celebrate Christmas all year round at the Winter Summerland Miniature Golf course! Designed by Santa Claus himself, you'll be magically transported to a winter wonderland, complete with a Christmas song playlist. Lily and I couldn't stop belting along to "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree." With plenty of delightful puns (which we frogs toadally love), this course will get you in the holiday spirit any time of the year. (Plus you might even get a special message from Santa Claus himself!)

Choose from either the Summer or Winter course. The Summer course embraces the Florida sun with sandcastles, melting snowmen and ornaments hanging from palm trees. The Winter course celebrates all things cold with igloos, hockey and an epic ice castle. Both sides are for all skill levels so it comes down to whichever season you're feeling. We often do the winter course on our December trips — we just can't help it. 'Tis the season!

Winter Summerland is located next to Blizzard Beach Water Park and is close to Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Transportation to Disney World Mini Golf

Disney World Mini-Golf Guide - Tee UpIf driving, both mini-golf courses offer parking. Note that Fantasia Gardens shares a parking lot with Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, so you'll want to get your parking ticket validated by mini golf cast members so you can exit the parking lot without being charged. You may also be dropped off through ridesharing services such as Uber or Lyft.

Both Disney World mini-golf courses can be indirectly accessed by a Disney bus. For Fantasia Gardens, you can take a bus to the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve Hotel, which is just right by the course. You can also access the hotel from Disney's Hollywood Studios by either walking or taking a boat.

For Winter Summerland, you can take a bus to Blizzard Beach, as the mini-golf entrance is right next door! If staying at Disney's Coronado Springs, Disney's All-Star Movies or Shades of Green, you can hop on a direct bus to Blizzard Beach. All other locations will require you to take a bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom, where you can transfer.

Other Activities Outside of the Parks

Ready to take your mini-golf game to the full green? Disney World offers four golf courses on property for a variety of skill levels. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made online or by calling 407-WDW-GOLF.

Take the afternoon off and relax at your hotel! We love cooling off at the pool or taking a well-deserved nap. Explore what your own resort has to offer or resort hop to see what each unique resort has in store.

For other activities on your non-park days, consider spending an evening at Disney Springs. With plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment, you can shop 'til-you-drop and then enjoy a delectable meal with live entertainment. There is something for every frog to enjoy!

Hi Russ!

Yes, parking is free at the mini-golf courses! If you're going to Fantasia Gardens, the parking lot is shared with the Swan Reserve Hotel, but you can get a voucher from mini golf that will allow you to exit the gated parking lot for free.

Do you scan your finger at mini golf like the parks or is it ticket only?

If you've purchased tickets that include mini golf, then you'd just have to scan your ticket upon entry.
