Walt Disney World is one of the top tourist destinations of the world, and a dream vacation spot for children and adults alike. There’s just something about seeing your favorite childhood characters come to life that can bring out the child in you and have you jumping at the opportunity to take a picture with them!If you’ve already been to the magical wonderland once, but regret not being able to experience everything the theme park has to offer, here are a few priceless tips to help you make your next Disney World trip a more fulfilling experience:
1) Don’t Rush
We get it; this is a once-in-ten-year opportunity for you to see everything the theme park has to offer. There’s no time to lose! But veterans have reported that the best way of getting the full experience is to take your time walking through the theme park, and taking in all the wonder the park has to offer.
2) Reserve Eating Spots in Advance
Some of the most popular dining spots, such as Cinderella’s Royal Table get booked months in advance within seconds of reservations opening! Reserve dining spots for the trip at least 180 days before you head out to avoid missing out the chance to dine with the princesses.
3) Reserve Accommodation in Advance
Disney World offers a number of accommodation options, with 22 on-site budget-friendly and luxury resorts, and hundreds of off-site hotels. Getting a room can get notoriously hard during rush season, so make sure you make your reservations at least 60 days in advance!
4) Use FastPass+ Reservations
FastPass+ allows you to skip lines, cutting back a major amount of time you would have otherwise spent standing in queues. This allows you to fit more into one day! Reserve your FastPass+ at least 60 days before your vacation as these too run out very fast.
5) Pack Light
You’re likely going to be spending the entire day walking around in the sun and hauling a heavy backpack can quickly tire you out. Pack essentials, including a poncho (for the water rides), sunscreen, water bottle and hand sanitizer.
6) Stay Hydrated
The hot, humid weather of Orlando can easily cause dehydration. Pack a travel size water bottle and ask for refills at any food kiosk for a quick and cheap way to stay hydrated.
7) Create a Schedule
If you want to incorporate as much as possible into your next trip to Disney World, you need to create a schedule—and stick to it! This will also help you attend any parades or events that may be going on during your vacation duration.
8) Wear Comfortable Shoes
You’re going to be walking around a lot during your Disney World trip, and doing so in a pair of espadrilles is going to leave you with blisters and aching feet. Wear your most comfortable sneakers and make sure to break them in before your trip!
9) Check the Refurbishment Calendar
Nothing can bum you out more than heading to Disney World only to find that the ride you were most excited about is closed for maintenance. Visit the official ride refurbishment list on Disney’s website to check which rides will be open for visitors during your time there.
10) Hire a Tour Agent
You may have been to Disney World a number of times and consider yourself a veteran, but no one can know the ins and outs of the theme park than an agent who arranges hundreds of trips every year.
Hiring a private VIP Disney World tour service like Five Star Private VIP Tours also comes with other benefits such as guaranteed minimal wait times, reservations at your favorite restaurants and luxury transportation to and from the theme park. Contact us now to book an exclusive Disney World tour!
