Planning An Orlando Holiday

Without a good plan, you can find yourself standing in endless queues or watching the back of someone’s head instead of the parade in front.

Going to Orlando without even a small idea of what you will want to do is almost as bad as planning every microsecond.

Anatamy Of An Orlando Holiday

Your plan needs to start before you book your trip. Your accommodation choice should take into account whether or not you want to drive while in Orlando. Before you arrive in Orlando you should know which parks you want to visit and when.

For Disney World parks you also need to have booked your park reservations. Without a valid park ticket AND park pass reservation you won;t be allowed into any of DIsney’s main theme parks. A minimal plan of action in regards to must-do attractions will help cut down the queuing.

Initial Planning

Do’s & Dont’s

  • DO get park reservations for Disney World parks you want to visit. In peak periods they can dry up weeks in advance.
  • DO have a basic idea of the attractions you want to experience for each park. Getting your head around the park layout is a good idea.
  • DON’T over plan your day. Attractions, weather and crowds are unpredicatable. Your plans need space to adapt to daily challenges.
  • DON’T forget to book your Disney World table service dining 60 days in advance.
