Insider Secrets to Help Organize Your Disney World Vacation, Part 1
Do you have a trip to Disney World Planned? It's such an exciting event, don't forget to use your time wisely, and not spend it standing in lines. We'll help you!
The first step to enjoying an Orlando Disney World vacation is realizing that there is much more to Disney World that just the Magic Kingdom. There are actually four parks that make up the Walt Disney World Orlando resort, all of which are open seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Most Disney vacation packages begin on either Sunday or Monday. These two days also happen to be the busiest days in Disney's Magic Kingdom. When Parents tell their children that they are going to Disney World, thr visions of Cinderella’s Castle and Main Street, USA are all the kids can talk about for weeks. Though the Magic Kingdom may be the highlight for your family, understand that it will be there on Tuesday too; trust me, I have worked there for almost four years. Sunday is a very busy day at EPCOT as well. HINT: Try starting off your trip with a visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom or the Disney's MGM Studios Studios.
Your time at Disney is limited so take advantage of the park hopper option on most park tickets and hit two parks that first day. Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney's MGM Studios are great parks to combine. Go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom at 9:00am when the park opens, ride the safari ride and conquer Mount Everest then go to Dinoland and experience all the attractions there. One of the biggest considerations will be the decision as to which parade to see. Mickey’s Jamming Jungle Parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom or the Stars and Motorcars parade at Disney's MGM Studios. They run at about the same time everyday and it is impossible to catch both of them. Disney’s Animal Kingdom closes the earliest out of all the parks at about 6:00pm everyday (earlier in the off season), so make sure you get there first thing in the morning so you get as much time to enjoy the park as possible.
After you have finished with Disney’s Animal Kingdom hop over to Disney's MGM Studios using the Disney bus service located at the front of each park. It is free and it will save you time. If you choose to go to Disney's MGM Studios later in the day, make sure you see the Beauty and the Beast stage show and the Lights, Motors, Action stunt show first thing. Both of these shows are in outdoor theaters and stop running before dusk. Make sure you see the Muppets 3D movie and the Great Movie Ride. Your kids will love the Muppets! There are two big ticket attractions at Disney's MGM Studios, Rockin' Roller Coaster Featuring Aerosmith and the Tower of Terror . Make these your last attractions before seeing Fantasmic, the nightly show. Fantasmic is a journey through Mickey’s dreams and is an amazing show! Arrive early. It is a huge stadium but everyone in the park that day will want to see it and you do not want to be in the standing room only section.
Well that should get your planning activies underway efficiently. Stay tuned and we will offer more insider advice to make your visit a family moment to never forget!
