My husband, now nearing 30, always remembers his trips to Disney World included an evening at the Pirate’s Cove. Updated since he was a kid, as we drove down International Drive he stared in awe as we passed the tall, cascading waterfall.
A must see for all ages. No need to have children to have a good time. As two newlywed couples going late at night under the lights, we loved it!

There are two 18-hole courses available. If you have kids under age 10 I would recommend the easier course, otherwise try Black Beard's Challenge. This was a great mini golf experience and I may say it is second only to the course at the Mall of America in Minnesota. Besides being a challenging course of slopes, obstacles, and sand traps, the flora and fauna were exceptional.
On one hole we looked out onto a waterfall and saw a family of baby ducks (trying) to follow their mama up an embankment. After they failed several times they decided to take the easy route. . .over the falls! Later on we saw they had made it safely to their family. A lot of the flowers were in bloom and there was a lot of greenery that blocked out the noise of the highway.
OK, back to the golfing. There is a lot of stairs and walking. On hole #15 you get a break from the bright Florida sunshine by hitting through a cave. I'd also like to mention that I had a hole in one on this hole! As you are leaving the cave there is a little animated pirate poker game going on. Overall this was a very clean, well-kept course that offered a challenge. Go early like we did (10:00am) to avoid the crowds.
