As I stated before, visiting Disney Orlando requires meticulous planning if you do not want to get exhausted with so many things to do. Please know that thousands of tourists from all around the world visit this destination annually so you should be cautious and make reservations well in advance. You can check directly on the official Disney page and familiarize with their parks, attractions, accommodations, etc. and assemble your itinerary according to yours and your family’s tastes and needs.
Rent a car
While there is the option of taking the Disney transportation (Disney has an excellent internal transportation system that offers its guests buses, boats and monorails that take you from one park to another) depending solely on it can be very limiting apart from the fact that the crowd and lines for using it can get to be really fatiguing. A good recommendation is always renting a car in Orlando on your own. With a rental car you have more flexibility to move around in total comfort and even venture to visit other interesting spots out Disney with total freedom.
Where to Stay
- Free transportation that takes you from hotels to parks
- Free parking in the parks ($ 22)
- Free Magic bands
- Possibility of hiring the dining plans
- Free transfer between the hotel and the airport
- Extra Magical Hours (overtime to park opening hours only for guests staying at Disney hotels)
The price might be a bit higher in comparison to other accommodations in the area but the advantages that come with it definitely worth it. (A room with good views at any of these hotels is around $ 600 a night and a standard view about $450 a night.)
Where to eat
If you consider eating inside the parks is expensive, you have another option. You can use your car rental and go buy food and beverages at a self-service center or restaurant outside the park. Luckily, this is allowed Disney and you can save a good amount of money, especially if you travel as a family. You can have a picnic in the Disney green spaces and spend a really enjoyable time with them.
Beware of the park’s itinerary
Visit one park a Day
Although the ‘’1 Park Per Day tickets’’ are a bit more expensive than if you bought a package of several parks, I actually recommend to visit one park a day. Because of the magnitude of them, you might end up really tired if you visit many on the same day and you won’t even enjoy them in all its extent.
Use the Fast Pass Express
If you are visiting the Disney World Orlando theme parks, you must sure to make the most out of your trip through organization and good planning but in addition to this it is essential to have a cheerful attitude and spread it all around. That will definitively make the difference and turn your visit into one of you most memorable experiences!
