Walt Disney World fans are well aware of what some call the “Disney difference”. The Disney difference are the things that Walt Disney World does to exceed expectations, achieve even more and make a greater impact on their guests than other theme parks do. These little extras often come as a great surprise for guests. Join me in counting down the top ten best surprises at Walt Disney World.
1. Themed Resorts and Hotel Rooms that Amp Up the Magic.
Hotel rooms and resort design take the Disney magic to a whole new level. Resort themes range from character inspired rooms straight out of Disney movies to lavish adult friendly resorts with Victorian, nautical and wilderness themes. Staying at a Walt Disney World resort allows guests to immerse themselves in the magic for the entirety of their trip. Guests often do not truly understand how great the Disney difference is until they experience a Walt Disney World Resort.
2. Disney Meals Bring the Magic to Life.
Disney meals are so much more than just a meal. From character dining and delicious buffets to world-class dinner shows and sumptuous steak and seafood houses, Walt Disney dining is an incredible experience. First time Walt Disney World guests are often surprised to see the lengths Disney goes to make Disney dining a memorable, fun and tasty experience.
3. Interactive Ride Queues Make Waiting in Line for Attractions Fun.
Leave it to Disney to even make waiting in line fun. Interactive ride queues allow guests to play matching games, take a glance at storybook pages or play music on interactive scenes they pass while waiting in line. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh allows young guests to play in Rabbit’s garden sorting potatoes and carrots as they wait. The Haunted Mansion graveyard have guests play spooky tunes on a touch screen organ and Toy Story Midway Mania gives guests a glimpse into Andy’s room as they wait to board the ride.
4. Disney Snacks Tie in With Movies and Theming.
Traveling to a theme park always means indulging in tasty treats like ice cream, corndogs, funnel cakes and popcorn. Snacking at Walt Disney World reaches a new level of awesome with Disney themed snacks. Caramel apples become mouse shaped, waffles at breakfast are a smiling Mickey Mouse face and even food at Disney buffets are themed as Minnie’s Mini Corndogs and Mickey’s mac & cheese. Character themed food makes snacking so much more fun!
