Walt disney world tips

If you have a problem visit guest relations

Guests Relations are located at all Walt Disney World parks and can help with reservations and general information. You can locate Guest Relation on park maps, the Walt Disney World My Disney Experience App, or ask any Cast Member. Remember, many of your most common queries can be answered by checking the My Disney Experience App.

Have spare space in your suitcase

You need to be careful with the number of souvenirs you buy at Walt Disney World. Make sure you keep space in your suitcase to bring them home. Previously we had to buy an additional rather expensive case at the resort shop to bring our extra items home!

You can’t buy chewing gum at Walt Disney World

Unlike Singapore, chewing gum is not banned at Walt Disney World. However, to reduce its use, it is not sold in any shops. If you can’t cope without it, make sure you bring it with you.

Don’t visit Animal Kingdom on the first day

The reverse is true of Animal Kingdom. There is minimal shelter inside the park, and you should visit once you are more conditioned to the Orlando conditions.

Consider visiting Future World at Epcot on your first day

It can take a little while to get used to the Orlando humidity. Future World contains many large indoor pavilions. These locations are air-conditioned and offer a great opportunity to get out of the heat.

Take a photo of where you park your car

It is easy to forget where you park your car at Walt Disney World. Take a photo of the location before heading into the park.

Read dining cancellation instructions

You can cancel the majority of dining reservations until midnight before your visit. However, the most popular venues do have different rules. Remember, if you fail to cancel your reservation, you will be charged.

Take the Resort Monorail

Both Magic Kingdom monorails stop at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Despite having more stops, the Resort Monorail usually has much shorter lines.

Take advantage of last minute lines

Lines will be open until park closing time. Everyone who joins the line will ride, and this is usually significantly shorter than the advertised wait.

Consider whether you want to use a Disney Vacation Planner

You will find many sites that recommend using Disney Vacation Planners. Traditionally we don’t recommend this route. Read our advice on whether you should use a Disney Vacation Planner.
