Sometimes, the best advice doesn’t come from the grown-ups. Too often, when it comes to travel plans we focus on what the kids want too much, so we forget what the adults want. On the other hand, sometimes people ignore the kids and don’t allow their voices to be heard. In this case, I asked my 9-year-old son what his best tips were for DisneyWorld. My kids have been dozens of times now, so their opinions are pretty valid. Take a look at what my son thought were the best tips for planning your DisneyWorld vacation.
- Don’t over plan. Make sure to leave wide open schedule because you might make changes on the go.
- Get reservations at places that you’ve never tried before that look delicious. Everything has a different taste and you might want to see how your taste buds cooperate with different places.
- Make your fast passes early because you want to get the good rides.
- The best rides at EPCOT are Soarin and Test Track. Spaceship Earth and Mission Space are also phenomenal. At Magic Kingdom the best rides are the mountains – Space, Splash, and Big Thunder, plus Mine Train. Hollywood studios – everything is awesome. From all the shows to the extremely fast rides, including Rock N Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror, Star Tours, Slinky Dog Dash, and Midway Mania, Hollywood Studios is super fun. Animal Kingdom – Flight of Passage, to me, is one of the best rides in Animal Kingdom. Also in Pandora is the Na’Vi River Journey. Head on over to the yeti ride (Expedition Everest) or Kali River Rapids, which is also awesome.
- Some fast passes you can’t do in the same day (like Soarin and Test Track) so you have to pick which one you want to do best.
- Disney Springs – best place to go if you’re in the mood for shopping. Lego Store and World of Disney have great things you need. If your child gets bored, take them to the Lego Store to build lego cars. Remember, you don’t have to buy your children everything.
- When you come with friends you don’t have to do everything together. Not everyone has the same opinions. Sometimes being separate is a good thing.
