How can a you get the absolute most theme park fun and value out of your Walt Disney World visit?
Get to know the Area! Do your research, and Ask questions.
Several examples are:
- Read a guidebook. I can think of several choices off the top of my head. The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, Passporter makes an excellent Guide as well, and if you have kids our very own Lisa has her Guide Beyond the Attractions: A Guide to Walt Disney World with Preschoolers
- Visit the official Walt Disney World Resort website (www.disneyworld.com) and obtain a free vacation planning DVD, also check out the online planning tools which offer suggestions about experiences which may be of interest to first-time guests or to those combining a celebration with a Disney vacation.
- Consult with the Disney World Moms Panel comprised of Disney-savvy parents who share knowledge in an online forum.
- Visit our site, Facebook Page or Ask us your Disney Question. We try to teach you all the various tips and tricks we have learned over the years!
While the four Walt Disney World theme parks are all created for family fun, virtually any guest familiar with Disney World has a “favorite park.” That’s because the parks’ themes vary dramatically!
From lands of whimsy in Magic Kingdom to worlds of scientific and cultural accomplishment at Epcot to streets, sets and backlots of show business at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, to realms of animals living, extinct and imaginary at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
You are immersed in those thematic worlds through stories “told” in attractions and experiences. But the methods of immersive storytelling are many. Sometimes a physically interactive entertainment concept is used, with guests being drawn into the action and becoming stars of the show. Sometimes ride systems carry guests on journeys that range from tame to wild – just like the stories. And sometimes the experience is physically passive, designed for the senses to “drink it in.”
With “homework” ahead of vacation, you can customize an itinerary to suit your interests as well as considerations such as age, height restrictions and ambulatory limitations.
