7 Tips to Vacationing at Disney in Orlando, Florida

Spring break is just around the corner! That means summer is not too far away. Moms, dads, and children are all looking forward to a relaxing summer vacation. Everyone needs a bit of fun!

If you’re thinking about a family vacation this year, I can’t encourage Disney enough. Kids absolutely love it and parents can’t help but get caught up in the excitement as well. It’s one of those trips that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your faces.

If you decide to vacation in Disney, use these tips to have the best vacation possible.

1. Rent a Vacation Home

There are tons of vacation home rentals in Orlando, Flordia to choose from. Most people tend to look for hotel rooms first, but in reality, renting a home has many more perks. For one, your family will have more space and privacy. With a home, you don’t have to worry about cramming into beds and being on top of each other. It makes for a more relaxing vacation. Secondly, renting a home is more affordable then renting a hotel room or two for a week.

2. Visit Disney’s Character Warehouse

It is an outlet store located off the main premises (on Vineland near Downtown Disney) that carries heavily discounted merchandise. Chances are the kids want souvenirs, and the warehouse is much cheaper than buying at the park.

3. Buy a 10-Day No Expiration Ticket

If you plan on going to the park more than four days, buy a 10-day no expiration ticket. It is the most economical option for those who are planning on going to the park everyday of their trip and is actually cheaper than a four day pass.

4. Check the Park Calendars

You should do this before you go. Check for parades, fireworks, and live entertainment. These events are usually at different parks, so knowing where they are before you leave can be helpful to planning your day.

5. Plan Your Days

Disney World is huge. There are many different parks and tons of attractions. It is best for you and your children to sit with a map and figure out where you want to go before you get to the park. Once you decide, you can plan your days according to which attractions are located near each other.

6. Take Swim Breaks

To reiterate, it gets hot in Florida and Disney can be tiring. It is best to go in the morning, then go back to your rental and take a lunch swim, then return for activities in the afternoon. This way you can relax a little, and avoid the hottest part of the day. After a tiring morning/week, there is nothing more relaxing then your own pool, as opposed to a crowded Disney resort pool.

7. Know the Age/Height Requirements

If you know your child is looking forward to a certain ride, check to see what the age/height requirements are before you get there. You don’t want your child to get disappointed about a ride they were looking forward to!
