There is no denying that there is an overwhelming amount of things to do and see on a Walt Disney World vacation. With 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, Disney Springs and so many amazing restaurants, it can be very difficult trying to decide exactly which experiences are must-dos for your family. This is where the advice of frequent Disney vacationers can come in quite handy! Here is my list of 7 must-do experiences not to miss on your next Disney vacation.
Explore Your Resort and Relax by the Pool
Trust me, you’ll be glad you took some downtime to relax after a few days at the parks! It is so important to allow some time to rest and reset. Most of us are not used to so much walking and waiting, especially in the Florida heat! The Disney resort hotels are beautiful and can be quite an adventure to explore! Disney also boasts some of the best resort pools! Take advantage of all your resort has to offer!
Take Time to Explore all the Immersive Lands
One thing about Disney is that it is definitely not your average “amusement park”. Disney does such a great job of actually making guests feel as though they have been transported to another world. One of the best experiences you can have at Disney is just taking the time to really soak in the amount of detail in the themed lands. Whether it’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Pandora, or Toy Story Land, make sure you really stop to see everything these lands have to offer!
Take a Rideon the Disney Monorail
No trip to Disney is complete without a ride on the famous Disney monorail! Take the monorail to a meal reservation at one of the Disney monorail resorts, or enjoy the short ride from the Ticket and Transportation Center to Magic Kingdom Park.
Enjoy a Firework or Nighttime Show
No one (and I mean no one) does nighttime shows like Disney! If you haven’t experienced a Disney fireworks show, you are missing out! Make sure you give yourself and your traveling party the opportunity to really enjoy a Disney nighttime show, as this is by far one of the most fun and memorable experiences you can have at Disney.
Try Lots of Snacks
Disney is definitely known for having amazing food! It would be pretty much impossible to try everything, but try as many of the iconic Disney snacks as you can! Dole Whip is probably the most popular snack, followed by anything Mickey-shaped. Everything tastes better when it’s Mickey-shaped!
Don’t Skip the Classics
Disney’s classic attractions are classics for a reason! They have withstood the test of time and remain popular many years later. No Disney vacation could be complete without riding Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion or It’s a Small World.
Don’t Over Plan
This one can be really tough! There are just so many attractions and experiences available, and of course, you want to try them all. However, over planning can lead to being exhausted and run down, and not really enjoying yourself. Plan out your and your family’s absolute must-dos and save some time to wing it! Some of the best experiences at Disney can be the ones you never planned for!
