its too bad Disney has never built a go cart racking venue at all.

I haven't been over to W/S yet, but I love the concept that it's set up as a vacation spot for Santa and his elves.

The family and I love to do some mini-golfing at the Winter Summerland courses. When the sun is setting and its a little cooler out, it is a fun hour or so. The courses need some work but overall ethy are in good shape and more importantly we have a great time.

If either of the two mini-golf areas get switched over to Frozen, I'm betting on the Winter Summerland courses over at Blizzard Beach.

Crazy this isn't for a Frozen theme.

The Fairways course is definitely more challenging than the typical minigolf course but a lot of fun. Takes a bit more thinking to get around. It's not as busy as the others but that's a definite plus.

Fantasia Gardens tends to be fairly busy; you might be waiting a bit to get on the course, and we waited several times on the course as there would be a bit of a back up at one of the holes. Of the two Fantasia courses, that one is the more popular. Fantasia Fairway tends to be more sparse, from what I understand, due to it being designed like an actual golf course in miniature, with sand traps and water traps, as well as being a bit more challenging.

I am glad to hear some feedback on the courses... are they usually busy? I think I have only seen people at the Fantasia Gardens course one time when I was passing by... maybe most of the course is hidden from the street...

I've only done Fantasia Gardens, and in that case, I'd have to give a resounding yes to both (even if there is no hole based on 'Rite of Spring'). Lots of nice touches, and a few surprises hear and there (the 16th hole in particular nearly got me good ;)).

I have never been to any of the mini golf onsite... from the street none of them look impressive enough to bother. Are they nice courses? are they well themed and fun? I always thought that when the Premium passholders lost PLeasure Island as one of the parts of the pass they would have at least given us admission to the miniature golf, but no such luck... It would have made the Premium pass more attractive to me....but instead I downgraded as I do not use Disney Quest or the water parks.

It could sure use a lot of little maintenance projects- a few mechanicals that don't work, some music missing in places, etc. For Fantasia junkies like me, this is just a 'must' every trip. It's certainly not what it was when it opened, but most folks probably don't notice.
