Walt disney world tips

Movies under the stars

The majority of Disney World Resorts play Disney Movies outside every night.

The Kiss Goodnight

The Kiss Goodnight is a little extra unadvertised show in the Magic Kingdom. Starting approximately 15 minutes after the park officially closes. Keep your eye on Cinderella’s Castle to watch the show, which lasts around 2 minutes.

Find a Hidden Donald

There are Hidden Mickeys everywhere, but can you spot a Hidden Donald? Hint, it is in the Haunted Mansion.

Catch rare characters at Epcot

Hopefully, characters will return soon to Walt Disney World. Disney characters traditionally train at the International Gateway. If you catch them, you may see rare characters with minimal waits.

Ride Test Track early in the day

Summer afternoon storms are frequent in Orlando. Storms will mean Test Track will close. Ride the attraction early in the day.

Some rides will close during storms

Some rides will close at Walt Disney World during storms. Schedule outside attractions for the morning.

Don’t miss the animal trails at the Animal Kingdom
