Two of the biggest don’ts of Disney World

There are so many things to do when planning a Disney vacation, it is impossible to know what needs to be done and what can be left for improvising. Just like my three “do’s” of Disney World, here is my list of “don’ts.” Hopefully these will help you plan your next Disney World vacation without feeling overwhelmed.

Try to “wing it”

Do not go to Disney without some sort of plan. Even a simple plan, such as one mapping out which parks you will visit on which day is a good start.

Things you should not try to figure out last minute are your FastPass+ selections, table service restaurant reservations and behind the scenes tour purchases. Many of these fill up fast, especially during peak seasons and could make for an stressful vacation if not thought out and planned before your arrival.

Do it all at once

There are so many things to do at Disney World, that it is near impossible to do it all in a single day. To enjoy most of what the Magic Kingdom and Epcot have to offer it is best to plan for two days at each park. Both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom can be done in a single day.

However, you will need more days than just park days. There are so many more things to do, including exploring your resort, going miniature golfing, splashing around at the water parks and spending time at Downtown Disney.

Hopefully both of these lists help you plan your upcoming Disney World vacation more efficiently.

Happy vacationing!
