If you've got kids, drop them off at the Camp Dolphin child care service. Then mom and dad can relax on the balcony, go for a walk on the romantic white sand beach, head out onto the water on a swan paddle boat, or watch fireworks right from the resort's grounds Dine at one of the 17 restaurants and lounges right at the resort or head over to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios.
