Tips for a Disney World Family Holiday

Tips for Visiting Disney World

Disney World is the ultimate in family holidays and if you are going for the first time or returning, there are a few tips that will help you get the best out of your holiday.

You can expect crowds at Disney World and the best time to visit is during the week, when school is in session.  Try to get to the park early before the crowds start arriving, have an early breakfast inside and try to get one of the rides done.  It may be a good idea to stay at one of the resorts in the park as it allows you to get in early and leave the park later.

Plan Your Trip

Planning is the key to a successful Disney World tip and the best way to get around the park is by getting a FastPass+ and these can be reserved 30 days in advance or if you stay in the park you can book 60 days in advance.  You will not have to stand in lines, especially at the more popular rides.  Book restaurants in advance as these can also become very busy and these can be booked 180 days in advance.

The weather in Florida is unpredictable so you should always pack sunscreen and a raincoat in case it rains.  Sunburn is not only restricted to summer days it can also happen in winter.  The parks all have charging stations so you can pack your charger and charge your phone if your battery runs out.

Resort Hopping

Try resort hopping, even if you are not staying in the park, this is a great way to try out new restaurants, enjoy shopping and explore the park.  It is possible to spend a whole day enjoying the resorts using the monorail running along Magic Kingdom.  Visit the Polynesian, Contemporary and Grand Floridian.

Take Time to Relax

Disney World is huge and exploring the park can be tiring and together with the heat, it is easy to succumb to exhaustion.  Don’t try to pack in too much in one day, rather spread out your time at the park over a few days.   Schedule your park days apart, spend one day enjoying the pool and playing the online slots Canada has to offer on your mobile, or relax at Disney Springs or the Boardwalk and take some time to relax.  It may also be a good idea to only do half days at the parks and take the rest of the day off to reenergise.


Getting around the park is easy and there are various transport options that are free and the best way to move between your accommodations and the parks.  A fun option is using the monorails and boats to move between some of the resorts and the parks.  The bus system works really well and you can get anywhere in Disney World.

Besides all of the wonderful and exciting theme parks there are also the water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach as well as a few mini golf courses.  Adults can also enjoy the nightlife; as there are nightclubs like Jellyrolls at the Boardwalk.
