Ship Essentials to Your Hotel
Many Disney guests don’t realize that it’s possible to ship bulky essentials to your resort or hotel. Items like disposable diapers and bottled water take up space. So, why not take the few extra minutes it takes to order them and have them sent ahead? Several grocery stores in the area will also deliver them straight to your room for you if you order online.
Board the Magical Express
If you’re flying to Disney, take advantage of the Magical Express. There’s no need to go through the frustration and expense of hailing a taxi cab. Disney’s free shuttle service transports you to your resort in air-conditioned style. The service delivers your luggage as well. It will save you money and time and is a great Disney World hack to remember.
Meet Your Favorite Characters
Getting character autographs are a much-loved Disney World tradition. However, certain characters may be a bit tricky to find. Information booths to the rescue! Simply tell the attendant who you’re looking for and he or she will supply location information for your favorite character.
Mention Special Occasions
Are you celebrating a special occasion during your trip to visit Mickey and friends? If so, make sure to mention it. You’ll typically receive a button commemorating the occasion, which entitles you to celebration perks at restaurants, your resort, etc. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings… oh my! You could also get lucky and have a bit of magic sent to your room.
Main Street USA Detour Option
All the shops on Main Street USA are connected. Take advantage of the fact that many people don’t know this and beat the heavy crowds by going through the shops instead of down the pathways. Air-conditioning is an added perk for those hot days at Disney World!
Purchase an Official Guidebook
With tons of Disney World related information available online these days, you may wonder if it’s still worth it to purchase an official guidebook. The answer is… YES!
Updated every year, it’s packed with valuable information to make your vacation extra magical. The minimal cost is more than worth it and will teach you some of the best Disney World hacks.
Avoid the Christmas Rush
Avoid huge Christmas time crowds by visiting Disney World during the beginning of December. Decorations start to go up right after Thanksgiving so, you won’t miss the festivities by going early in the month. School is still in so you will also beat the crowds by using this great Disney World hack.
These are just a few easy Disney World hacks to make your trip more enjoyable. Taking advantage of them means a less stressful trip and more time to make memories. Do you have any great Disney World hacks? Share them below!
