Miniature Golf at Walt Disney World Fantasia Gardens

If you’re headed to Walt Disney World why not add a few fun activities to your vacation? While heading to the theme parks daily is everyone’s favorite pastime, there is definitely something to be said, for going a little slower with one of our favorite Disney Family activities, miniature golf! Disney World has 3 miniature golf courses; here’s what you should know before you go.

Disney World Miniature Golf Courses

Fantasia Gardens

Located across the Swan Reserve Hotel parking lot, Fantasia Gardens is a Fantasia-themed miniature golf course, including 18 holes of whimsical challenges perfect for kids and grown-ups alike. 

Perfect for families and beginner golfers, the Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course invites you to join the reverie as you aim through twirling obstacles, cross fanciful fountains and discover musical surprises. Beware of the broomsticks, ready to douse golfers who pass below!


Accessible at the entrance of Fantasia Gardens, you can choose to play a more difficult course at Fairways Miniature Golf Course. This course doesn’t come with Disney statues or leisurely gameplay. But, is great if you’re looking to improve your golf skills! 

Resembling a traditional golf course built on a miniature scale, this course emphasizes skill over chance. Sand traps, bunkers, water hazards and sloping greens make the Fantasia Fairways Miniature Golf Course an exciting challenge, where par-3 and par-5 holes range in length from 63 to 109 feet long.

Winter Summerland

Another Miniature Golf Course at Walt Disney World is Winter Summerland. Comprised of 2 themed golf areas, both are 18 holes and offer family fun through a series of Disney-themed challenges featuring Santa and Florida-esque statues. 

The Summer Course
Enjoy fun in the sun at the Summer Course amid surfboards, sandcastles and ornaments hanging from palm trees. Deck the balls as you putt around peppermint-striped inner tubes, snapping clamshells and a melting snowman. Don’t wake sleeping Santa buried in the sand!

The Winter Course
Putt your way to the North Hole on the Winter Course; but watch out for Squirty the Snowman! This “jolly, happy soul” sprays water at golfers when golf balls pass beneath him. Merry obstacles include giant peppermints, hockey sticks and the drawbridge of a fantastical, melting castle. The courses combine for the last holes, and after sinking the last putt on Hole 18, golfers receive a special message from Santa Claus, courtesy of the WinterNet!

Disney World Miniature Golf Cost

Disney World Minature Golf costs $14 per Adult, and $12 per Child (Ages 3–9) plus tax. 

 Can you get Disney Miniature Golf Passes for Free?

YES! One of the best things to know before you go is that you can sometimes get Disney Miniature Golf Passes for FREE! As part of Disney’s Magical Extras, often included when you book a Disney Vacation Package. While you don’t get magical extras for booking a resort or buying tickets separately, if you’re using a Disney Travel Agent, be sure to ask how to get them.  

Do you Need Reservations for Disney Miniature Golf?

No! You’re welcome to just walk up and put in your name. Know that during busier times the wait can be quite long, like an hour or two. So to save yourself some trouble, it’s easier to just call and schedule a time. Call (407) WDW-PLAY for Disney Miniature Golf Reservations.

Disney World Miniature Golf Locations

If you’re wondering how to get to the Disney World Miniature Golf courses then you’ll be surprised at just how EASY it is! Because while these courses are tucked away, they are also just hidden in plain sight! In places where you’re probably already going! 

Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Minature Golf

These two courses are located in the same area and can be accessed in several ways.

  • Driving: If you’re driving there is a parking lot accessible by turning into the shared driveway with the Swan Reserve Hotel. 
  • Walking: If you’re staying nearby at the Swan, Swan Reserve, Dolphin Hotel, or any of the BoardWalk Hotels, then you’re able to just take the path leading towards the Swan Reserve Hotel, and cross the drive to the entrance. 
  • By Bus: You can alternatively take a Disney Bus to the Swan and Dolphin Hotels to get yourself closer to the entrance. 

Winter Summerland

  • Driving: If you’re driving, head to Blizzard Beach Water Park. The water park and Winter Summerland mini golf share a parking lot. And you can find the entrance of Winter Summerland just to the right of the Blizzard Beach Entrance. 
  • Walking: If you’re staying at Coronado Springs Resort, you can walk there, along the pathway adjacent to Buena Vista Drive. This is about a 15-minute walk. Check out the details of Walking to Winter Summerland from Coronado Springs Resort, so you feel prepared if you go this route. 
  • By Bus: Take a Disney Bus, serving Blizzard Beach, from your Disney Resort. Alternatively, Animal Kingdom has a bus that goes to Blizzard Beach and you can always catch the bus there. 

NOTE: While Winter Summerland is open till 10, Blizzard Beach is only open until 6 pm, and bus transportation will stop approximately half an hour after the park closes. As such, if you’re planning a late mini golf experience, we recommend you plan for your own transportation, or to walk the 15 minutes to Coronado Springs Resort, so that you can catch a bus to the parks, and then your resort from there.
