Hang ten with a pro­fes­sional surfer dur­ing a 2.5-hour pri­vate les­son at Typhoon La­goon Wa­ter Park ($165; ages 8+), set sail on Seven Seas La­goon and Bay Lake aboard the lux­u­ri­ous 52-foot Grand 1 yacht ($553 per hour; up to 18 peo­ple) or share a meal over cre­ative chat­ter with a Dis­ney Imag­i­neer ($37.27$68.15).

Hike a rugged trail to dis­cover an aviary of ex­otic birds and a hip­popota­mus pond spilling over with the gi­nor­mous, wide-mouthed mam­mals. Bravely cross the shaky rope bridge over chomp­ing croc­o­diles. Then, ride aboard an open-air truck for up- close halts along­side gi­raffes, rhi­nos, ele­phants and other prairie an­i­mals. Recharge with an African-in­spired feast; and re­mem­ber ev­ery wild mo­ment thanks to the tour’s com­pli­men­tary photo ser­vice.
