7 Best Practices for a Day at Walt Disney World Parks

3. Sunscreen

Nothing can ruin a great day at Disney faster than a sunburn.  Guests will want to make sure that they are covered with sunscreen before leaving their room and constantly reapplying every ninety minutes.  If you forget or run out, sunscreen is available in all of the Disney stores and at the resorts. 

2. Stay Hydrated

In addition to the sun causing issues with sunburns, guests can also easily get dehydrated just by walking around in the sun.  We recommend taking in a reusable water bottle and filling them up at any of the water fountains through the park.  Guests can also go to any counter service restaurant location and ask for a glass of ice water and they will give it you free of charge.  You may also want to modify your plans to make sure you are visiting attractions that are inside or have a converted queue so you have some respite from the hot sun!

1. Be Flexible/Pack Your Patience

As with many things at Disney, there will be crowds.  With large crowds, guests need to be flexible and patient with their vacations.  If you head to Tomorrowland upon entering the Magic Kingdom and there are huge lines for everything, meander over to Adventureland and see what is happening over there.  If you’ve planned your trip appropriately, you know you will be enjoying three attractions through the use of your FastPass+ selections, so you can always adjust and experience something new and different.
