Everywhere you turn, there are tips and tricks for a successful Disney
World or Disney Land trip. What time of the year is best to
go? When is Orlando’s temperature the coolest? What are some of the best ways to
navigate the parks with children?
Can you bring your own beverages into the park? And the list of questions goes on and
You want to worry about
catching Mickey Mouse for his autograph rather than having your child walk
around the park with ice cream all down his shirt because you forgot a change
of clothes, right? By following the
tips submitted by experienced-Disney travelers below, you and your family will
have time to feel the magic of Disney…
These are the
least crowded times of the year to visit Disney World & Disneyland. If you have children under 5, check out
these dates of travel
The second week of January to the first week of February (except Martin
Luther King holiday weekend)
Third week of August to the start of October
The month of November (except for Thanksgiving weekend)
The week after Thanksgiving up to week of Christmas

available for these dates and many more!
Visitors have suggested to take the Disney restaurants up on their offer
to brown-bag your breakfasts so you can eat it while waiting on line for your
first ride but if you are with children under 5 and you are a mother, you know
that by the time you get your family’s turn on the teacups, your children
will be wearing their oj and egg sandwich so the best
idea is to eat breakfast in the hotel room before you head to the park. There are less
distractions for your children so they will more likely sit and eat so they can
go to the park as fast as possible!
Even if you do not need a stroller for your children to ride in, bring
it anyway (or rent it at Disney).
It is a great place to store extra clothes, snacks and drinks, and any
souvenirs you buy. You can park it
at each ride and this way, while on line, you do not have to hold
everyone’s bags. If you do
not want to use a stroller, there are many other options to use – beach
carts, folding shopping bags w/ wheels, or even coolers on wheels.
Have you and your family wear similar colored shirts or hats in case you
are separated. Or, before you get
to Disney, you can order custom-made temporary tattoos that have your
child’s contact information in case they are lost. Stick it right on their arm and it will
wash off when your trip is over.
Research the park and all the rides. Some may be scary for younger children
than others. And, you want to know
where you can steer the older kids so they enjoy the parks, too. Disney is not just for younger children…
there is Disney magic for all ages!

you have your answer to when the least crowded time to visit Disney is, and you
know that you can bring your own food and beverages into the park,
and you can even rent strollers at the park but do you know what the weather is
like during those dates? Florida and California
are known for their sunny weather year round, but it is best to research the
average weather temperatures during the time you have selected for your trip
and even the average rain fall for that month. Weather.com is a great place to start
these tips and let Disney make your dreams come true. At Disney, fun is the order of the day
and worries are absolutely not allowed.
