10. Failing to Plan Ahead
Like it or not, the new way to plan a WDW vacation is to plan ahead. Take advantage of the opportunity to book in advance: 180 days for dining reservations, 60 days for resort guest FastPass+, and 30 days for non-resort guest FastPass+. You’ll be disappointed if you try to get a pass for one of the most popular rides, like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Frozen Ever After without a lot of lead-time. Beyond reservations, get to know the layout of the parks and make a basic plan for each day so you can get to the attractions most important to your group. Don’t end up sad that you missed out on a favorite because you got lost!
