    Hi, Moms! We will be at WDW for 14 nights in Sept (Yay, yay, and more yay!!!) We are staying at Pop and wonder what you suggest for finding a quiet, relaxed, free spot (at Pop or elsewhere) to unwind a little while we're in Disney World? Thanks in advance

    Oh, I am ALL about the quiet spots. So follow me first to the Magic Kingdom.
    Tom Sawyer Island
    The rocking chairs inside the Briar Patch shop
    Hall of Presidents
    Near the Toontown Train Station and the path that leads to Space Mountain
    Carousel of Progress

    hidden nooks around World Showcase, including the gardens at the UK
    Near the water in Italy
    International Gateway area
    Spaceship Earth

    Animal Kingdom:
    outdoor benches in a shaded area at the exit to Dinosaur. Just walk down the exit path until you come to this area.
    Hidden trails around Tree of Life

    Hollywood Studios:
    One Man's Dream
    hidden tables inside Backlot Express 
    the exit area to Tower of Terror can be pleasantly empty in the courtyard area. Walk towards the exit.

    The indoor spots are refreshing when traveling during the summer. When not in heavy use, the Child Care Centers can offer nice respites.

    Note that many more of my favorite spots have been turned in to the designated smoking locations. However, you can usually still enjoy these areas away from the smokers such as near Big Thunder Mountain in the Magic Kingdom. There are some wonderful rocking chairs near the water.

    At Pop Century, walk towards the water. You'll find some quieter locations to relax the closer you are to the Hour Glass Lake or the further you are from the Hippy Dippy pool.

    For quiet strolls, walk between the Grand Floridian to the Wedding Pavilion and on to the Polynesian Resort. Walk along the Boardwalk Resort over to the Yacht and Beach Club.

    There are many quiet areas at Ft. Wilderness on foot or even horseback!

    Take tours of the hotels. There are fantastic places to sit and unwind in the many resorts. Cozy chairs on the second floor of the Wilderness Lodge, the solarium at the Beach Club, second floor chairs at the Grand Floridian, courtyards (or beach hammocks) at Caribbean Beach Resort. And More!!
