Disney World – it’s the happiest place on earth especially in the fall when they offer dining inclusive specials. Plus, they just opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios! With four amusement parks, two water parks and 25 uniquely themed hotels and resorts, it can be challenging trying to plan your Disney vacation. Here are some planning tips to think about and then give us a call so we can help you navigate the world of Disney.
1. Stay at a Disney Resort – You’ll pay a little more to stay at a Disney hotel, but you’ll love all the perks. The Disney resorts have shuttles constantly running between your hotel and all the theme parks and even Disney Springs. And, you’ll also get extra time in the parks, aka “Extra Magic Hours,” for Disney hotel guests only which allow you to enjoy a less crowded experience. Plus, when you stay onsite, you get the “Magic Band”. This wristband acts as your key to your room, key to getting on rides that you’ve set up with a FastPass and when you purchase things at a store in the parks or at Disney Springs, you can have it delivered to your room. This way, you can walk around the parks unencumbered by bags of stuff. Speaking of the FastPass, by staying onsite, you can book your FastPasses earlier than those who don’t.
2. Purchase a Multi-Day Hopper Pass – If you are planning on enjoying the parks for a few days, consider purchasing a multi-day hopper pass. This pass allows you to hop from one park to the next on the same day. The benefit is that you can spend the day at the Magic Kingdom, then go to your room and take a nap or get your feet off the floor for a little while. And later that night, go to another park to enjoy their fireworks or a special event. Plus, the longer you stay, the per day cost per ticket decreases. You could pay as little as $69 per day if you purchase a 7-day pass.
3. Travel in the Off-Season – During peak season which is typically June through August and over the holidays, both Disney hotels and hotels in the vicinity raise their prices. Save on lodging, food and entertainment by visiting Disney in September through March. The fall is an excellent time to go with discounts and the added benefit of cooler temperatures.
