Default Disney $#*!

I'm being forced to goto Disney with my wife during the rut. I'm not sure I can get out of this. Any recommendations what to do or not to do when I we get there? Anyway to save money? I would rather burn 10k over a campfire than give it to Mickey Mouse.

My conclusion is, it is what you make of it. If you go into it with a sour attitude, you will be miserable. If you go into it with an open mind to have a good time, you will probably enjoy it.

Dude if you spend $10k, you got bigger issues. My wife just sent her parents and two siblings to Disney for their first time ever, and it's under 5k for all of them, including a $60 allowance per day for food.

Make reservations NOW for any resturant (like the beauty and beast one).

Stay at a resort.
Have groceries delivered to the room (its a service)..drinks, snacks, waters, etc.
dont buy **** in the stores at the end of rides.
PLAN your day, and your fast passes for each day.
Do not carry a ton of crap.. small back pack for waters, phone chargers etc.
Plan your lunches.

Disney is unbelievable. You will enjoy and if you have kids they will remember it for the rest of there lives. $10K is a lot for Disney. We are going to my daughters HS graduation trip "She picked it" and I think we are all in for $3-4K with airfare, park hopper, and fast pass.

I didn’t know Disney has a rut!

I suggest you go, make the most of it.

Here is one way to save some money. There is a Disney timeshare. DON'T join, but members get points each year to use towards stays at Disney and cruises. Many members don't use their points and sell them online. This can save you a ton and get you stays inside the park itself. You just have to look online for people selling these points. Sellers will be able to assist you to know how many you need and the booking of the room. It's legal to sell the points and often they are at discounted prices as its a use it or loose it type thing.

I didn't want to go a few years back, but enjoyed every minute of it. The smile on the kids faces was worth every penny. We went around my birthday on we booked a guided fishing trip at the lake by one of the resorts and slaughtered the bass. Probably caught around 50 or so between the 4 of us.

Buy you some good comfortable shoes... It is a really cool experience I think you'll really enjoy once you get there. Fast Pass, and plan meals is the only advice i could give from my limited experiences. Also if you have time to go to Universal Studios i'd got here as well.

I've been twice. Once about 8 yrs ago and once last year. I really dreaded it and thought I would hate it. Liked it! Some of the best money I've ever spent. Everything there is pretty top notch. Staff is all happy and seem glad you are there. Piece of trash hits the ground and it is picked up asap. It is expensive but I felt like they make it worth it with the quality experience they provide.

Go tour the 11 different countries at Epcot World Showcase and drink a beer at every one. See if you can do it in less than 2 hours. It will make for good stories

I had a blast at Disney BOTH times and looking at planning a 3rd trip this year.


I will say...we had a rule. No strollers. either you walk or don't go

I stayed at a Holiday Inn over by Downtown Disney. We ate breakfast in the room and the Disney busses came by every 30 minutes. We took a backpack with drinks and snacks for about 11:00. Ate lunch in the park around 2:30 (no lines). Then we went out to eat in the town at different restaurants. Came back for the fireworks.

Get a certified Disney Planner!!!! It does not cost you a dime. They are paid by Disney. They will help you with everything from suggesting things to see and do. To making all your reservations including restaurants. Also if a discount comes out between when you book and when you travel they will get you the better deal instead of you spending hours on hold with Disney to get the discount.

I went last year and it wasn't too bad. I had no urge to go and still don't. Just don't bring the in-laws, which is where we went wrong, and you should be fine. Stay on the property and most of all, good luck.

We are going at the end of the month. One way we have saved a little money is to pay for the trip with Disney Gift cards. You can buy a $500 gift card for $479 at Sam's Club. It will save you enough to pay for some meals. You can also buy the smaller ones if needed for purchases while you are there.

Ohana and Le Cellier. That’s our favorite places to eat. Reservations need to made 6 months out. That’s when they open it.

Do not be like cattle and follow the crowds. Use your eyes and look to the ends there is always a shorter line.

Utilize riders switch if you have a little one.

Get to the parks 30 mine before they open. The first hour is the golden hour. This morning alone we rode a roller coaster 4 times in a row before. The line got long. Each time we got a riders swap pass. So had 4 more fast passes for when the lines got long.

Disney has a couple amazing golf courses.

Drink around the world in Epcot. It’s fun and helps with the walk. Just don’t start with a bottle of wine as I did.
We average 5-6 miles a day this trip according to the iPhone.

The monorail is our favorite way to get around. LYFT is starting now it’s 20 bucks for a ride. It was a good way to get around too. We hate the buses with 4 kids and strollers

We always did park hopper but realized it’s a waste of money. Disney do it this time.
I will send you some more when I get to hotel.

No you can’t bring your bow on safari

Talk about the park with your kids ahead of time and get their top 3 things they want to do. Make those your priorities and work the rest in. You can't do it all in one trip so don't try, just focus on the kids priorities.
Getting to the last day and having a 6 year old in tears because they wanted to ride the dwarf mine ride but the line is 2 hours long and you have to leave before then is a bad way to end a trip.

I'm 100% with you. It's silly that Disney World is seen as a rite of passage and that kids are somehow owed this experience. Most kids would be better off with that $5-10k in their college savings.

My wife and I already decided our kids are going on a National Park tour instead of Disney.

Just got back te Friday before Christmas. Best vacation I've ever had. It was truly magical for my 2 kids. We will go back in about 4 years

Plan it through an agent ( I can refer one if needed). Cost you minimum more but will maximize trip 10x. Theyknow all the tricks and things that require 6 months ahead booking

Don't worry about the money. It's crazy expensive I won't lie. But if you go into it looking to be tight you will be miserable

I wasn't a fan of going during December hunting season either.... but in the end it's a $&@% deer

2things:

Get a GOOD pair of shows to wear. Tons of walking !!!

And use the Disney Planner recommended above. They help plan everything - hotel, dinner reservations, park tickets, fast passes, etc !!!! They help you to understand everything and make it fun !!!
The bracelets are awesome. no need to carry cash or anything to the park.

We did a 4 days @ Disney & 3 Days @ Universal !!! The trip was awesome !! Kids loved it (9 & 13) and we enjoyed it too. We did the Photo pass ($50) too. they took all the pics aroudn the parks and we could login using our bands and see them and download them !! Made for some great pictures and we didnt have to carry a camera with us...

We bought the 2 "quick service" meal dining plan and it is more than enough food because you get snacks.

I thought really highly of the Disney Springs area and you can use the quick service meals at certain restaurants in that area. I had a blast and can't wait to go back.

Been twice. 2nd time without strollers as mentioned above. Both boys old enough I walk and ride most rides.

My few recommendations:
Get the App and use fast passes
Planner helped a lot
Pick which parks. We did pass hopper and enjoyed the water parks also.
Water is free, you just have to ask for it. Not bottled but still free
We saved by taking snacks in like jerky, crackers, etc.
Then packed cooler for lunches and left it in the car when we all got hungry.
Go see night parade and laser/fireworks at magic kingdom
We were there at 4th of July and watched fireworks at Epcot.

Have fun! Coach

I feel for you bro. I had to move-in my daughter to Arizona State University this past weekend. I saw at least a dozen deer and coyotes along I-20 between DFW and Odessa. Watching the Sun go down these past 2 nights hurt. Last weekend in the North zone to kill a buck is gone.

You will enjoy it. Disney is the cleanest most professional run organization I have ever seen. Every person was friendly and there was nothing out of place. Not even gum on the sidewalk. Its been over 10 years since I have been and would love to return.

Sorry, can't help with the planning part, the two times we went my wife and mother in law took care of that.

The last time we went it was as a Christmas present from my in laws to my family and my brother in law's family. There were six adults and four kids (2 boys 10 and 14 and 2 girls 10 and 14). When we got there it was late and the adults wanted to sit and have a relaxing dinner. I grabbed up all of the kids, told the rest of the adults to relax and enjoy themselves and that the kids and I were going to go to Magic Kingdom because they had magic hour that night, it was between Christmas and New Year and I seem to recall they were open crazy late, like 2:00 AM. Anyway, it was non stop from start to finish!

My advice... approach it like a grown kid! My boys and my nieces still talk about that first night when I was the only one willing to take them to the park. And yes, I think I had as much fun as the kids did!

Entire family went last June 2017 (grandparents, kids, grandchildren, etc.). My parents too sisters and myself back in 1995, so this was our first trip back in 22 years.

Few thoughts on the June 2017 trip:
- Trip was expensive. 3 Rooms at the Polynesian Resort for 6 nights; Park hopper passes everyday and meal allowance for everyone (7 adults and 3 kids). There were a few other things included, be we ended up around $15K.

- Fun place, but I was kind of disappointed considering the shear lack of park updates between my first visit in 1995 to last visit June 2017. At least 70% of the rides were exactly the same...22 years apart.

- Disney is not a relaxing trip. Don't even try to enter it that way or you will be miserable. It's literally go, go, everyday. Between Fast Passes, Dinner reservations, shows, fireworks, etc., you feel like you are always trying to get somewhere for a particular time.

- Too many people! Be ready to be in crowds from dawn until night fall. There are lines for everything and everywhere you go from rides, to monorail, to buses, etc.

- Wear good shoes. We averaged about 5-6 miles per day and even had one day close to 10 miles. Not a bad idea to start walking the neighborhood a couple months prior if you are a bit out of shape.

- Magic hours - If you are staying at a Disney resort, take advantage. Lines and crowds are not nearly as bad; especially at night.

- Epcot is awesome for adults. The walk around the world is a blast and they vend alcohol in that park.

- Universal - If your children are like 10 and above, plan a day at Universal. There's much better thrill type rides and things slightly older children / teens will enjoy more.

What age does everyone recommend taking your kids? We have a soon to be 3 year old and another coming anyday. Just curious what age kids get the most out of it.

We took my daughter at 5. She doesn't really remember any of it. I would recommend 8-10.

I had a great time when we took our son when he was 6. He's almost 12 now and I would go back in a heartbeat. Go with your family. Enjoy spending time with your family. If you want it to be fun, it will be fun. There is fireworks show just about every evening in at least one of the parks.
