I have been to Disney World three times. In all those times, I discovered some helpful tips. Disney World is one of my favorite places in the world, and I always have an amazing time. But there are ways to make the trip even better..
--DO use the phrase "excuse me." Disney World can get crowded, so sometimes you'll bump into people. I was amazed at the amount of folks who didn't bother to say "excuse me" when this happened.
--DON'T cut in line. It would irk me when a bunch of family members would cut in front because the mother or father was holding a spot. I can understand bathroom breaks, but if it's more than three people, don't do it. It's rude.
--DO use fastpasses on the following things: the Mine Train ride, meeting Anna and Elsa, Hollywood Tower or Terror, Soarin' and Rock N Roller coaster. These lines were always the longest.
--DO sign your kid up for the Jedi Training Academy at Hollywood Studios. It's adorable.
--DON'T get impatient. There is a lot of waiting involved at Disney World. If you get impatient, go get a Mickey bar and cheer up.
--DO expect your kids to have at least one meltdown. Natalie was tired of walking and was offended when I wouldn't carry her.
--DO try the strawberry soup. It's at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian. It's amazing.
--DON'T inhale if you're in a crowd of people trying to get to another place. You frequently move in crowds if you go during a high peak season. I made the mistake and inhaled someone's sweat and old cheese funk.
--DO try to get to the parks early. It seems like there are tons of people, but wait times for rides are always shorter. By lunchtime, the lines get longer. If you can't get a fastpass for a popular ride, go on it first thing.
--DON'T expect to always sit if you're taking the Disney busses. We had to stand several times. After walking all day, this could get frustrating.
--DO expect to do a lot of walking. This was my FitBit count on the end of one day.
I hope these tips will help. We had an amazing time at Disney World and cannot wait to go back.
