Top 10 Walt disney world tips

You don’t need a First Aid kit when you visit parks

First Aid are available at all Disney World parks. The centers are staffed by trained nurses and are open during regular park hours. Facilities available include over-the-counter medications, bandages, and other quick remedies.

If you’re getting a military room rate at any Disney Resort, you can actually get the dining plan too.

In case you didn’t know, in order to get the Disney Dining Plan, you have to buy a Magic Your Way vacation package which consists of your resort room, dining plan, and park tickets (only if you aren’t an annual passholder or Disney Vacation Club member). But if you’re in the military (or reserves, or retired) you can get military Disney tickets for ($180ish) as opposed to anywhere upwards $250). So when booking a Disney room, you can also opt for the dining plan minus tickets.

Consider travel time when planning

If you are late for a Dining Reservation, you are not guaranteed admission. Walt Disney World is big, and getting between places takes some time. You must allow adequate time when working between parks.

Don’t be overwhelmed

The planning of a Walt Disney World Vacation can seem initially overwhelming, but it really is fairly straightforward. Obtain a few good guidebooks and do online research, and you will soon be able to create a perfect plan. While Disney World planning mistakes and mishaps do happen, they rarely ruin a vacation.

Bring your own food and drinks

You can bring your own snacks and drinks inside the park. However, no glass or alcohol is allowed.

Mobile Order is king

Ordering your dole whip, chicken nuggets, or any other snack on the My Disney Experience app and thus skipping the line is by far the quickest way to get food. Here are some of my favorite DDP tips and money maximizing strategies.

Have fun at Walt Disney World

Our final tip is, after all the planning, make sure you have fun. Relax, you are on vacation. Go with the flow! I want to eventually get this post to 500 Walt Disney World Tips & Tricks. If you have any tips which you think we should include, please leave a comment.
