A lot of our friends are in the "Disney years", and planning a trip to Disney World is complex. I wanted to provide advice on how to maximize your trip with kids under 5. When to spend, when to save, and helpful tips to make your trip easier.
A trip to Disney World is like taking the SAT’s - it can be tricky, and you’ll do significantly better if you prepare for it and know what to expect ahead of time. I’m writing this to de-mystify the Disney experience for friends who are interested, but don’t know where to start.
The resort you choose will be a determining factor in how well your trip goes with kids under 5. This covers where to stay, resort pools, views of Cinderella's Castle, and the best ways to start and end your trip.
We'll look at the Disney Dining Plan, what type of restaurants to eat at, and how to maximize time and budget with food.
These tips are for all parks and will talk about how to approach seeing things, height requirements, preparing kids for roller coasters, rider swaps, strollers, potty training, FastPass+ grace periods, and Minnie Vans.
What are the must-do items, and which ones can you can pass on? I'll also provide strategies for FastPass+ rides, and where to go when you just need a break!
