Since you’ve been watching Walt Disney Cartoons, you’ve decided that it’s time to reward the kid in you with a trip to Walt Disney World! Yes, but now, the questions are assaulting you. When to go? How long? Or sleep? Which attractions to choose? In this article, we are giving the answers about how to prepare your visit to Disney World.
When to go?
The date on which you will make your trip to the magical kingdom of Mickey is not to be taken lightly. Indeed, depending on the period chosen, you will end up with more or fewer people, and when we queue for a minimum hour for an attraction, say that fun is less magic.
The ideal time is to avoid school holidays, but be careful, check also the calendar of the American school holidays. Summer is also a busy time and the “heat wave” factor also adds an argument for choosing other dates.
A period that is interesting is in the fall, starting in September. Not only is the temperature pleasant, but more visitors are less important. Be careful though not to choose the days around Thanksgiving.
Here you will find a calendar showing the months according to traffic by choosing the right period; you will have more time for the attractions and will be less stressed by the crowd.
How long does it go?
The answer to that will depend on several factors. The period where you will make the trip. As we have just seen, depending on the period, ridership will vary. So if you choose a busy period, you will have to queue up longer to make the attractions.
Ask yourself the right questions.
Which parks do you want to see? Disney World has four main theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.
Depending on the number of parks you will want to see, you will need to adjust the number of days on the spot. There is usually a big day per the main park. But it is also possible to take it to relax and visit a single park over two days.
Many tourists also combine a visit to one or two Disney parks with a tour of the city of Orlando and its region. In short, you can make a “jump” of a day or spend a whole week!
Which hotel to choose?
Just take a look at the Disney World site to realize that there is not the lack of accommodations in the most famous mouse. No less than 32 options are available.
For those who want to camp, it’s possible to do it at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. This is the least expensive option. Those who want to live a castle life will choose the luxurious Grand Floridian Resort and Spa whose price per night is 10 times more expensive than the camping option. There is obviously between the two extremes the whole range of accommodation (bungalows, villas and traditional hotel rooms).
Those who want to leave the world of Mickey for the night will not have to go far, there are many hotels all around the site, at really affordable prices. The advantage of staying on the site, besides the practical side, is to benefit from “magical hours”. By staying in some hotels, you can indeed benefit from overtime in the park.

It may seem odd to have to do some research when you’re having fun at Disney, yet you have everything to gain. Well, when we say to do research, it is not a question of writing a dissertation either, but simply to go for a walk on the maps of the different parks, to look at the attractions, their description, the minimum age etc.
At Disney, there is something for the whole family, so if, for example, what you are looking for is the most “adrenaline” attraction, you can make a selection in advance. By selecting in advance and knowing what you are going to do, you will optimize your time on site and eliminate the attractions that match you the least.
