If you love Disney World as much as we do you might be planning a trip there for the whole family. You won’t regret this decision, and there is nothing quite like Disney World in Orlando for a fellow fanatic or a family with young children. But, if you want to make the most out of the experience, here are a few tricks you won’t find in travel guides.
Say Hello To The Disney Vacation Club Staff
Not a member of the Disney vacation club? Then make sure you go and say hello to the members of staff there. Yes, they will keep you talking for a little while, but it is worth it because ultimately, they’ll offer you the chance at a little marketing pitch that takes between one and two hours. There you’ll be catered for, and everyone in your party will get a lovely ice cream sundae. Out of all the trips to take around Disney, this one definitely will be enjoyed by everyone. But that’s not all, you’ll also get a gift card worth up to two hundred dollars and magical ultimate fast passes for three rides. These fast passes mean that you can get in for any ride at any time through the day without even booking it. When you have kids, this is definitely worth it and will make for one magical day with zero queues.
Book A Disney Restaurant Breakfast
You should definitely book a restaurant breakfast in one of the major theme parks. This will give you early access to the park, allowing you to get on a ride or two early. While you can’t actually ride until the park is open, you can jump in the queue and be the first one on the ride. This is particularly useful for the Snow White Seven Dwarfs ride which, minutes after park opening has a queue wait time of over forty minutes! The sweet spot for restaurant bookings is 8:10 on a day when there are no extra magic hours.
Can You Get A Magic Moment?
Be sure to keep the smiles glued to your faces as you walk through Disney World. If staff think you’re a true believer in magic and adore Disney, they’ll give you what’s referred to as a magic moment. This could be anything from a meet and greet with one of the characters, a backstage tour, more VIP fast passes or a little souvenir. These magic moments are quite rare, making them all the more special when they do happen.
Know The Must Ride Attractions
There are currently only three must ride attractions in Disney World, and we’ve already mentioned one of them. The other two you’ll find in the alien world of Pandora. It is worth using your fast pass plus options on these rides for at least four days. They are worth sacrificing a few fast passes because we guarantee they are like nothing you have ever seen. These are state of the art theme park attractions and unfortunately, very popular. Fast passes are used up ridiculously quickly and the standby time can be anything up to four hours! Even getting to the park when it opens won’t save you from the queue.
I hope you use these ultimate little tips to make the most of your time in Disney and have a truly magical adventure.
