They call it the place where dreams come true and there is definitely something magical about Walt Disneyland, Orlando. Here’s what you need to know…
The Walt Disney Resort is HUGE
This is not a one-day trip as part of your holiday. You can easily spend two weeks exploring the various different Disney parks. There are currently six different Disney parks, as well as a Disney shopping mall, various Disney hotels and a miniature golf course, amongst other things, all spread out over 25,000 acres of land. Take sensible shoes!
Fast passes sell out three months in advance
There is a free fast-pass system in place at Disney, but you have to be clever about how you use it. You will need a smart phone to access it so that you can download the My Disney Experience app. Once you have that, you can book three fast passes for each day in advance. The fast passes become available three months in advance and the bigger rides sell out very quickly. If you intend to make the best use of your time at Disneyland, it pays to be organised. Plan which days you would like to go to each park and then use your first three fast passes for the most popular rides.
Disneyland is exhausting
In a good way – there is so much to see and do that you are guaranteed to sleep well each night! If you are putting an itinerary together, and you have the time, take a break day in between each park – trust me, your feet and legs will thank you!
Catch as many shows as possible
Even if you think you are a little bit old for the Lion King, or you have never even heard of a Tiki room, try and watch them anyway – I promise you won’t regret it and you’ll have the Tiki Tiki song stuck in your head for the rest of the trip! And don’t miss Fantasia at Hollywood Studios – it is the perfect way to round off your trip.
Make the most of Disney deals
It might be the most magical place on earth, but boy can Disneyland take hit your wallet hard! It makes sense to take advantage of as many deals and offers as you can, in order to make your money spread a little bit further on your holiday. The Holiday Fixer is currently able to offer a free dining and drinks deal when you book through us. If you book one of our custom packages, you and your family will be able to eat for free while exploring the theme parks, which will save you a fortune!
With something for everyone, Walt Disneyworld really is the most amazing family holiday. Book today and have the trip of a lifetime!
