How to Prepare for the DisneyWorld Trip of a Lifetime
Walt Disney World seems to draw people of all ages from all walks of life, so you’re not the only one who’s been dreaming of going. We’ve heard of newlyweds taking their honeymoons there, and now that you have kids, you’re glad for an excuse to take them. With all the hype built up around “the happiest place on earth,” we want to make sure you have a wonderful time. Here are some tips to enhance your experience:
- Pack wisely.
With temperatures and humidity levels at annual highs during the summer and with Florida’s infamous sporadic showers, you’ll want to stay dry and comfortable, so pack a poncho and lightweight clothing to beat the heat and precipitation.
- Expect the crowds, and work around them.
While there’s virtually no way to completely avoid the throngs of people milling around Disney World in July, you can plan your day so as to circumvent the busiest times and attractions. For instance, mid-day brings the most visitors, so if you hit the park earlier, right after it opens, then go back and take a nap while most people are flooding the gates, you’ll be refreshed and ready to return to the park for nighttime festivities.
Also, certain indoor attractions are lesser-known and perhaps “less popular,” but they offer a great way to cool down and give yourself some breathing room.
- Adapt your eating schedule.
As would be expected, people generally like to eat lunch around the same time, resulting in an overload of people in restaurants. You can avoid this by eating either earlier when restaurants first open or later, around 3 or 4pm.
- Use a FastPass.
This takes a bit of strategy, but if you play your hand right, you could breeze through lines at the busiest times of day and even score an exceptional viewing area during Epcot’s IllumiNations fireworks display.
