A trip to Disney World is an experience that parents, children, and grandparents will remember and cherish. However, it is an adventure not to be taken casually. A bit of planning before you get to Orlando will help you and your family enjoy the experience more.
Don’t Let Concern About Bad Weather Stop You
Rainy conditions can’t ruin your experience at the park as long as you take a few precautions. Traveling Mom says to dress in clothes that will dry quickly, take along some lightweight rain gear, and have waterproof bags for electronics. The layout of Disneyland has lots of shelter from the weather, and many rides are indoors. This means that you can escape the worst of the weather, regardless if it is heavy rain or scorching heat.
Eat Outside of the Park
There are many alternatives to eating meals and snacks inside the Disney World grounds. You can check out the restaurant in your hotel. Also, there are plenty of fast-food and sit-down restaurants surrounding the Disney World campus. In addition, guests are allowed to bring snacks and foods that do not require heating into Disney theme parks.
Plan Your Top Rides
Before you head to the Disney park, learn all you can about FastPass+. It is a digital ticketing system that allows each ticket holder the opportunity to avoid lines on three select attractions at one park per day. Talk with your kids about which attractions you want on the fast track – either the favorites or the ones with the longest lines. FastPasses are completely free and are available with all admission tickets. Park Savers reports that Disney World has four theme parks and two water parks, as well as fourteen hotel resorts, so you probably won’t be able to explore all of it during one trip. You should also check for any upcoming events at Disney.
Find a Place for Your Child to Nap
If your child is still taking naps during the day, make sure you put aside time for your child to rest. The day will be more enjoyable for you, the child, and the whole family. There are numerous places within the Disney campus that are conducive to sleeping. Visit one of the resort hotels for a comfortable, relatively quiet place to rest. Being a guest of the resort is not a requirement to borrow some space in the facility for a short time. Check Trip Savvy for additional sites at Disney World that are recommended for nap time.
Enjoy your trip to Disney World any month of the year, but remember to do a little homework before you go. Need more ideas for planning your dream vacation? Check out these articles from Your Life After 25:
