We have brought you plenty of tips on modernlifeisgood.com to help plan your vacation. However, what are our very top tips? Here is our Top 5 Walt Disney World Tips for your vacation. These Top 5 Walt Disney World Tips, updated for Summer 2018, will make sure you will have a great time if you are visiting for 1 day or 2 weeks.
Create a Plan
I know you are on vacation and we all like to relax on vacation taking each day as it comes. However, Walt Disney World is one vacation you must plan!
Disney Theme Parks are massive. None of them can be completed in just 1 day. Depending on the length of your trip you have to prioritize what you want to do.
Not planning and you will miss those must-do attractions.
Master the Fastpass System
Launched officially in 2014 Fastpass+ is Disney’s attraction reservation system. Fastpass+ allows you to book attractions in advance of your visit to Walt Disney World. Your advance reservation allows you to join a much shorter queue so you can experience the ride quicker.
There are a whole host of rules over Fastpass+ including when you can start booking. The best Fastpass slots will go first to those who know the system and book early. Our Guide to Fastpass+ will give you all the essential information plus we have additional guides for each theme park.
Have a break
The Orlando heat can be heavy going especially in the summer months.
Plan to have a break during your day e.g. return to your hotel or have a table service meal. Our Guide to Orlando Weather has plenty of other tips to beat the heat.
Take your time. Disney World is huge. It can’t be done in just 1 or 2 days.
If you go charging around the World on your first day, trying to do all those big attractions, you will burn out.
Make a list of what your Walt Disney Wolrd Must-Do Attractions are and prioritize these.
Have Plenty to Drink
Not drinking enough is perhaps the biggest mistake you can make at Walt Disney World. Carry water and drink regularly. Dehydration and sunstroke are easy to acquire but easy to prevent. In addition, make sure you don’t forget a hat and suncream.
There are plenty of free water points in all parks and all counter service restaurants will give you a free glass of water.
