Walt disney world tips

Have some flexibility in your plan

We strongly recommend everyone creates a plan when visiting Walt Disney World. However, a good plan should be able to be easily altered if unexpected events occur.

Watch the Electrical Water Pageant

The Electrical Water Pageant is a little bit of Walt Disney World history and was part of the opening day attractions. Over the years, there have been a few changes, but sea creatures still sail across Seven Seas Lagoon nightly with accompanying Disney tunes.

Pressed pennies

An alternative to pin trading, without the risks of fakes, is collecting pressed pennies. Pressed penny machines are located all over Walt Disney World.

You can return items to any store

The majority of items can be returned to any store if something is not quite right. You do not have to visit the store you originally purchased from.

Visit Walt Disney World outside of school holiday

There increasingly seems to be no off-peak season at Walt Disney World, but crowds are still lighter when the kids are in school.

Use the restroom before getting in line

The wait can be long; it is better to be prepared.

Tour from back to front

Most guests will start at the front of a park. Head straight to the back on opening for the shortest lines.

Ask for a refill soda at table service restaurants

Refill sodas are free at Walt Disney World Table service restaurants. If you ask for a refill at the end of your meal, you will be given a cup you can takeaway.

Do you need an ESTA or Visa?

Check the requirements early of what you will need to enter the US. Also, in these unusual times, check on additional restrictions on international travel.

Have some warm clothes for the winter evenings

It can get quite cold in Orlando during winter evenings. Make sure you have a warm coat and perhaps some trousers.
