Time your trip wisely

The day of the week and time of the year that you visit Disney World can make a huge difference to your experience during your trip. If you can, try to avoid going to the park on a weekend or during school vacations, because these are usually the most crowded times. Another top tip is to arrive early in the morning or late in the evening, as you’ll likely enjoy shorter queues. Similarly, if you head to the most popular rides when the parades or other shows are on, you might also benefit from shorter waiting times.

Plan in advance

Walt Disney World is of course one of the most famous things to do in Orlando, so you’re probably not just dropping by on a whim to see what it’s like. Even so, the more you can plan your visit ahead of time, the better. For instance, due to the fact that Disney World is so vast (it actually contains several separate theme parks), there may not be time in the day to do every single activity on offer. That’s why it can be helpful to decide beforehand which rides and shows you are most interested in, and then prioritizing those when you arrive. This means checking the schedule for parades and similar displays in advance to help you plan.

Pack appropriately

There’s so much to do at Disney World that you’re probably going to spend the entire day in the park. As such, you need to make sure that you bring everything you might want or need with you. Check the weather forecast and pack appropriately – whether it’s sunscreen and sunglasses or a lightweight raincoat and umbrella. If you are intending to go on the water rides, it can be wise to bring a small waterproof bag for your phone, camera or other valuables. Remember to put everything inside a backpack that you’ll be comfortable carrying for many hours!

Look out for savings

With the cost of entry, food and those all-important souvenirs, a trip to Disney World can undoubtedly be expensive. However, there are ways to lower the amount you end up spending. For example, if you buy your tickets in advance online you may be able to take advantage of special offers such as admission over multiple days or to multiple parks for cheaper. Alternatively, if you live nearby and intend to visit a lot, then an annual pass can be a great way to save money and boost your enjoyment even further!
