Ever needed to find a corner of Walt Disney World to take a meeting or finish a project? Even do a bit of studying? Maybe you are a local looking to get out of your home office for a day or two? Look no further!
There are many corners across property that provide a great work-from-home space to get those couple of projects finished up or make a few work calls. Or even just chill out and read that great book you can’t put down! (I once wrote a 25-page term paper for a masters class while sitting on a bench on Main Street USA. It was arguably my best paper all quarter. I blame the magic of Disney!)
In no particular order, here are the top ten spots at Walt Disney World to work from home! Who would have thought you could ?
Coronado Springs – Grand Destino Tower
Up on the second floor of this beautiful tower are large tables tucked away from the traffic, making it a quiet spot for a call if you need it. There is also plenty of easily accessed power so you don’t have to worry about your batteries running out.
Not only does this location hit all of the marks for a great work from home location, you also have access to the glorious Barcelona Lounge on the first floor of the tower! It is a bar, but 6:30am – noon everyday this lounge operates as a coffee shop. They have great caffeine selections, as well as a handful of yummy breakfast snacks. (Try their Café Bombon drink – it is amazing!)
As you enter the Riviera, take a left down the hallway past Le Petit Café and you will find a library area, the Voyageurs’ Lounge. There is plenty of space plus opportunities for charging. It is not the quietest place for a call, but the background music here is one of my favorite loops on property! Some of the best Disney songs, all in French.
Be sure to grab a pastry or a drink from Le Petit Café! The Lavender Iced Tea Lemonade is *chef’s kiss*.
One of the most beautiful rooms on Walt Disney World property is the Carolwood Pacific Railway Room at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. It is removed from the main part of the resort, tucked away in the DVC building.
This area is quiet, has plenty of table space, but there are also fireplaces and big comfy chairs if you just want to settle in for some peace. Take some time to look around at all of the Walt history placed around the room. It makes me emotional every time I am there.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village
In the furthest southwest corner of property lies the Library in the lobby of Kidani Village. There are a few different seating options, including an oversized couch in front of a fireplace. There are even a couple of tables close to a power source. This area provides a decently quiet spot for work calls, as well.
The best part of this area? The rocking chairs outside overlooking the savanna! On those beautiful Central Florida afternoons October-April, sit outside and watch giraffes peek over your computer screen as you put those final details on your report.
Inside the Theme Parks
Magic Kingdom – Main Street USA
Grab a table outside of The Plaza Restaurant or Casey’s Corner under an umbrella and enjoy the sights and sounds. This isn’t the best place to take a call, but can you ask for a more magical spot to get some work done? I don’t think so!
If you are looking for a quieter spot to do your , try heading down Center Street just past Uptown Jewelers.
Magic Kingdom – Columbia Harbour House
One of the best hidden corners for some remote work in Magic Kingdom is the second floor of this quick service restaurant. Head to the back tables located on the bridge between Liberty Square and Fantasyland. You can find a bit of privacy tucked away here plus great people watching and beautiful views of Liberty Square and Frontierland!
EPCOT – Sunshine Seasons
This not only is one of the fastest quick service restaurants in the theme parks, there are hidden corners with great working space here! Head towards the tables closest to Living with the Land. This area is rarely crowded and there is plenty of space to spread out. It’s a perfect pick if you need an air conditioned location in the hot summer months!
EPCOT – Connections Cafe
I am incredibly impressed with this new space at EPCOT. The vibes are top-notch and it was clearly made to be a great spot to stay planted for a while. There are plenty of spots for charging technology, and you are in a great spot for both Starbucks and yummy EPCOT snacks!
Wake up early, grab a Guardians boarding group, and hang out here to get some work done while you wait for your time slot. The perfect WFH day!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – PizzeRizzo
Bring your laptop upstairs and hang out in the corner of one of the most underrated spots in all of Hollywood Studios! The noise level varies depending on the time of day, but this is a comfortable spot in the AC away from the crowds.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Flame Tree BBQ
Another beautiful place to be on those not-so-hot days is this gorgeous, often forgotten corner of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Go down the ramp past the ordering windows and keep walking toward the water. There is not much in terms of a power source, but you get beautiful views of Everest over the water. Plus if you want to go on an afternoon walk you can pick one of Animal Kingdom’s gorgeous walking paths close by!
