Are you about to visit the magical world of Mickey Mouse and all your favorite Disney characters? Is a trip to Disney World Florida cooking? Boy, must that be thrilling news! Whether it is your first time or just another Disney vacation of many more to come, check out the tips below and prepare for an amazing adventure the right way!
Plan, Plan, Plan
Surely, there are many things you need to think about when it comes to visiting the most magical place on Earth. Of course, you might decide you are going to visit Disney World on a whim and just turn up at the gates of one of the parks, but most people actually know well in advance when they will be going. Besides sorting out big things like flights and accommodation, you may want to plan for some of these too:
The exact dates of your visit – there are several seasonal happenings you might be able to attend during your stay so check those out
Types of tickets you will need – adults and children are charged a different admission fee and children under 3 won’t need a ticket
Purchasing a Memory Maker – it contains all your images and photos taken on different attractions
Dining reservations – restaurants like the iconic “Be Our Guest” will be fully-booked months in advance
Must-see attractions – avoid long waiting times
Register on the Disney Website
Each person in your party should have a profile on My Disney Experience and a ticket linked to their account. This is where you will manage your whole stay and all your bookings. You will save yourself a lot of time and confusion if you get familiar with the platform in advance. For extra convenience, download the supporting app on your phone.
Book Your FastPass+
Your FastPass+ is exactly what it sounds like. It gives you a shortcut to your favorite attractions in a time slot chosen by you. It allows you to skip the line and sometimes, this can save you 2-3 hours of waiting in lines.
Create a Budget
You will be tempted to spend a lot of money on your visit to Disney World. Mickey bars, school bread, Dole Whip, turkey legs, and hundreds of mouth-watering treats will be waiting for you on-site. Not to mention the hundreds of shop locations that will be luring you with keychains, memorabilia, exclusive merchandise and souvenirs. Saying no might become more difficult than you think, so our advice is to set a limited spending amount before you go and really prioritize.
We wish you safe travels and a Disney World experience that will leave lots of fun memories behind until your next family vacation to the place where dreams come true!
