7 Best Practices for a Day at Walt Disney World Parks

5. Early Start

Many people like to sleep in while they are on their vacations, so large crowds don’t begin flocking the parks until late in the morning.  Guests who are willing to sacrifice some sleep can enjoy two or three hours in the parks with relatively low crowd levels.  These low levels will allow guests to enjoy popular attractions, explore new experiences, and ride attractions without needing to use their FastPass+ selections.

4. Comfortable Clothes/Shoes

Regardless of the park you visit, you will be doing a fair share of walking.  A top priority for an enjoyable day should be to wear comfortable shoes.  Many people are tempted to wear flip flops or sandals since the weather is almost always warm, but we recommend wearing shoes with more support so you aren’t fatigued by early afternoon.  Given the temperatures in Florida, we also recommend wearing some comfortable clothes — cotton t-shirts since you will be sweating – avoid any tight clothing, but be sure to review the weather forecast so you are dressed accordingly.
