Orlando Sites: Disney Top Tips

disneyworldIt is part of every family’s bucket list to have Disneyland or Disneyworld be crossed out from their list of things to do and places to go; it’s every adult’s favourite childhood memory, and every child’s dream come true. Vacations taken with children is always a different story, you need extras for everything – extra clothing than usual, extra snacks, extra water bottles, and extra patience plus energy to keep up with them. This means, setting the kids free to run around and explore in the most magical theme park in the world requires more preparation than usual.

So before you head on out and hop on one of the best Orlando car rentals, read on through to see what tips you need to remember during your 1-3 days in Disney!

 

Go during off-peak seasons

This is before or after Christmas, usually the months of October or February. Never go during peak season as Florida’s heat is something else during those times. You’re bound to experience a meltdown, and if adults can feel really tired and dehydrated under the sun, imagine how much more that meltdown will be on your kids. So play it safe and never go during peak season.

Pack on the extras

Pack extra shirts, extra shorts, extra socks, extra underwear too if you must. Pack everything extra as there are plenty of rides where there are chances of children getting wet – not just from water rides but also from perspiration. It’s a hot day with a lot of running around, getting wet is bound to happen. And since you’re all perspiring, packing on extra water won’t hurt as well. If you don’t want the extra weight, all counters at Disney gives out free ice water, all you have to do is ask for it.

Wear comfortable shoes

There would be so much walking, running, and probably even jumping, that to wear flip flops, sandals, or even heels would be the worst mistake you’ll ever make.

Souvenirs as the last stop

Refrain from dropping by the souvenir shops too early in the day or else you’ll end up with less cash for more important things like food or beverages, less space in your backpack, and more junk that you and your kids might not really need. The best time to drop in at a shop is right before you watch the fireworks or right before you leave the theme park.

Reconnect With Old Friends, Plan A Vacation!

No matter how many weekends you stay in your apartment and spend the whole day in bed, it still won’t compare to having an actual vacation out of town and being literally away from home for a couple of days. True you may be getting hours upon hours of sleep, and plenty of quality time with your books, your tv shows, or your bed, but to see the same things day after day isn’t quite as relaxing as you think.

If you find yourself being a little bit crankier during Mondays, and having a little less patience for your interns whenever they have questions, maybe it’s high time that you pick up that phone and call on your gang to plan out a short but sweet vacation out of town.

Check out those cool travel blogs your friends online have been raving about, find out what tips they have to say about driving out on a long road trip to Vegas, or hitting the beaches in Miami. You could also go on an eclectic and highly spiritual trip to Key West if you wish. Dine in picnics at local parks, revel in the beauty of nature as you watch the sunset, or spend the entire afternoon biking around town.

Since graduating high school or college, it’s natural that you and your friends may have drifted a little since work and real life started. This is the perfect time to re-connect and rekindle that friendship over a bottle of drinks at a restaurant with exotic cuisine or maybe over a bonfire at the beach with marshmallows on sticks just like old times.

So go on ahead, book that vacation leave with your boss, get on that computer, check on best rental car rates for your trip, book the hotel, and save the dates. It’s time to let loose, relax, have fun, and reconnect!
