Fantasia Fairways is my favorite miniature golf course on Walt Disney World property. It is located on Epcot Resort Boulevard across from the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels.
Disney's welcome package (when you book a package, not room only) comes with 4 vouchers for one round of golf at Fantasia Gardens, Fantasia Fairways, or a Winter Summerland course. If you want a fun easy course for the kids Winter Summerland is your best bet. If you you are looking for more of a challenge, Fantasia Gardens would be a good choice; and if you are looking for a course where you will be lucky to get a par 3 Fantasia Fairways is the course for you.
I like to do Fantasia Fairways on my Epcot days after enjoying a couple of attractions; usually Soarin and Test Track. Frozen Forever After will be favorite for your little and big ones alike. By noon, y’all know what that means, lunch at EPCOT (my favorite park to eat in). I pick up a quick service, usually fish and chips in the UK pavilion. Then I head out the international gateway, walk the Boardwalk (you can take the water taxi), stroll over through the Swan, crossing the street to Fantasia Gardens. It sounds more complicated than it is. If you choose to walk, I suggest stopping at Ample Hills on the way and trying their Ooey Gooey Butter Cake ice cream (or any flavor they are all delicious), and eat a cone on your way to Fantasia Gardens and Fairways.
Fantasia Fairways is designed with hazards of a real golf course such as sand traps and rough terrain. Fantasia Fairways was voted the longest and most challenging mini golf course in the world by Golf Digest. Par is 72 for the fairways course As for a caddie its never a bad idea to have someone else to help you find the best line :-p
Adults tend to play this course more than kids because it does not have the fun characters and tunnels like the other courses, but this is still good for kids. However, there is always the Fantasia Gardens right along side of the Fairways
During the summer and weekends the wait for this course can get pretty long.
There is minimal shade here so unless you like a RED HOT complexion remember the sunscreen.
