    What is the difference between the two mini golf courses? I am taking my 5 year old daughter after brunch at Chef Mickey's.

    Hi Janet,

    It's really the theme, more than anything else which is different.  Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course has the "Fantasia" theme (one of Disney's classic animated films), you know, the out of control Broomsticks, Hippo's dressed in tutu's dancing, fountains that are leaping and dancing, and there are some interactive obstacles to enjoy here.  This course is geared towards families and beginner golfers.  There is music as rewards for good shots and fabulous water displays. here there are also two courses,  Fantasia Gardens is more for the beginners while Fantasia Fairways, are for the more serious golfers.

    Then you have Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course, which I am told is the retreat used by Mr. and Mrs. Claus when they are not hard at work making toys for Christmas at the North Pole.  The Elves actually built this Miniature Golf Course, so you will experience pint sized fun and they have a "snow course" and a "sand course" (you will have variety anyways).  These two courses have 18 holes each.  There are fun interactive elements to this one as well, (I won't ruin the surprises...lets just say...don't forget your swimsuit...no, I am just kidding....or am I????).  You might consider the snow course if you are beginners, this one is a little bit easier (with gravity and all!), and keep an eye out for a special greeting from Santa on this course when you sink the last putt!!!  This one is great for golfers of all ages.

    Whichever you choose, have fun!
