Many resources are available for planning your trip to Walt Disney World. Some people, like me, prefer to just go through everything and ensure everything is covered. Others, like everyone else, need the best Disney World tips to make the most of their trip.

For some people, a trip to Disney World can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With that in mind, here are some tips to ensure you get the most out of your Disney vacation!

Buy Tickets Online

One of the first steps to making the most of your trip to Disney World (or Land) is to purchase your tickets in advance. This will allow you to avoid losing time at the park entrance. 

Book Restaurant Reservations Online

One of the most important factors you should consider when planning your trip to Disney World is to make a reservation for at least one sit-down meal. This can be done through Advance Dining Reservations, which allow you to select from various restaurants and shows. Guests staying at a hotel on site can also make reservations a couple of months in advance. There are a variety of options that you can choose from, including character meals, fine dining, and more.

Set Up a My Disney Experience Account

The Disney World account is referred to as “My Disney Experience.” You’ve already done this if you have an account on the Disney World or ESPN websites. If you haven’t already, go to the site and set up your account. Although not everyone in your traveling party will need an account, we recommend that all adults have one.

Stay in a Disney Resort

One of the most important advantages of staying at an onsite resort is that it allows you to fully immerse yourself in the park’s atmosphere and get quick access to the parks. You’ll also receive additional perks, such as early bookings for select Lightning Lane passes or special event tickets.

Crowd Calendars

A crowd calendar is a type of calendar that attempts to predict how busy the parks will be on a particular day. It’s important to note that these predictions only provide information about specific dates, and you should not rely on them to give you a perfect trip.

Special Events

These special events are held at the parks, allowing guests to access the facility early. While you can wait until the planning stage to decide on these, tickets for these can run you around $150. This can impact the number of days you stay at the resort and the type of park tickets you buy.
