Top 3 Disneyworld Planning Tips
Travel Out of High Season
There’s always something to enjoy at any time of the year at Disneyworld! Book your flight during low-season ( to avoid the lines. While the temperatures may be a little cooler, you’ll still be in for a magical experience.
Get a Park Hopper Pass
Discounted admission to Disney is available year round with multiple entry deals on a park hopper pass. You could pay as little as $50 a day depending on how you bundle things. More fun for less? Yes, please!
Book An Apartment Instead of A Hotel
Choosing the perfect accommodation can be overwhelming. When it comes to Disneyworld, you are definitely spoiled for choice. If you are planning on visiting other theme parks, you may enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of the resort area. Before you go, check your options for accommodation outside of Disney. It’s often cheaper to stay ‘off-resort’ as you can choose from a variety of great places to eat or cook for yourself if you book an apartment; definitely worth the time and effort. Apartments offer you the comforts of home as well as the flexibility that you can’t always get at a resort.
Whenever you decide to go, Disneyworld has tons to offer. From thrilling rides to art and fine food, you’re all set to plan your next trip to the ‘happiest place on earth’. Now that’s something to smile about!
