A trip to Disney World is a rite of passage for many families. The scope of a Disney vacation necessitates some advanced planning + preparation. To fully grasp the magic of Disney, here are 4 tips to keep you from going insane (in the membrane).

#1 Prepare Your Kids in Case They Get Lost

Disney is the happiest place on Earth + it’s all fun + games until someone ends up missing. A trip to Disney World can be overwhelming for young kids. The throngs of people increase the risk that your child may get lost.

It is a good idea to talk to your kids before the trip to equip them with the knowledge + tools that will help them stay safe if they become separated from you. Instruct them to find a Disney cast member if they get lost.

If your kids are older, you can find a landmark in each park to meet in the event that members of your party become separated.

#2 Choose Rides and Attractions Before Getting There

Disney World has four theme parks + two water parks. It’s a very large place + extremely easy to get overwhelmed. There are guides on the Internet to specific parks to check out that can help you devise a plan of attack.

Disney even has FastPass selections for rides + attractions ahead of time so you can skip ahead of the lines for your top ride selections.

#3 Make Advance Dining Reservations

Disney boasts a myriad of fun + unique dining experiences that you might not want to miss. From character dining to a host of ethnic foods, there is something for every taste + palette.

Many of the most popular restaurants book far in advance, which means you’re going to need to make your reservations ahead of your trip.

#4 Take Breaks

Taking afternoon breaks is an ideal way to beat the crowds + the heat. To get the most out of your park experience, head to the gates early in the morning when they open so that you can avoid the crowds that form later in the day.

Heading back to your hotel for an afternoon swim or nap can leave you feeling refreshed + ready to tackle an evening back at the parks.

With a little research + planning, you make the most out of your Disney adventure. A magical time awaits you if you follow these four pointers (but still leave room for spontaneity in your days)!
