Tips To Get The Best Out Of Disney World


Planning a trip to Disney World with kids and want to know how to best go about it? At around the size of San Francisco, Disney World can be such an overwhelming place. This is unless you take advantage of advice from those who have already been there.

Holiday planning is always a challenge, but Disney World can be exceptionally complicated, especially for first timers, so here are a few tips...

Get the best deal available. I've seen a lot of people just assume that Disney World is just like any other theme park, and that they can buy entry once there. You can, of course, but this would not be a good deal and can cost a hell of a lot more than pre-buying before you go. You can get a selection of Walt Disney World tickets before you go to save you money as these are usually for use over either a week, or 2 or 3 weeks at a time. The longer you buy for, the bigger deal you get. 

To make it easier to understand, I asked a few other bloggers what their tips were, when it comes to holidaying at Disney World, Florida, and here's what they said...

Beth over at Twinderelmo says you should 'Make the most of the fast passes. They really make life simpler and are free for all guests. It enables you to skip the queues and ride the rides you want without having to queue for hours'. And Tors from Mum Times Two agrees, saying 'I would second the fast passes post, make sure you utilise them and get them when you can as sometimes they are gone before lunch time!'.

Whereas Sarah at Run Jump Scrap is thinking about the time of year you should go - 'If possible try to visit out of the summer. We went in May and the temperatures were much more pleasant and bearable than I've been told they hit in August'.

And Lyndsey from Me, Him, the Dog and a Baby is going for the comfort aspect of being at a theme park for hours a day - 'Take the most comfortable shoes you own. You'll do a lot of walking and there's nothing worse then your feet hurting an hour or 2 in!'

Lastly, Emily from Emily and Indiana talks about not just focusing on Disney for your full holiday - 'Make sure to schedule in down days out of the parks too! Disney is full on, and you’ll crash if you plan every second - especially if you have little ones'. 

And I guess that's the biggest difference between Disney World and Disneyland, the size. At Disney World you can easily spend your entire Florida vacation there, and that's exactly what Disney hopes you will do. But you should try and take some time out, to do other things, and visit other places because you really could go too much Disney...
