7 Best Practices for a Day at Walt Disney World Parks

Castle Blue Dancer Festival Of Fantasy Parade

When we visit Walt Disney World, we are always focused on trying to have the best day possible.  To do this, we make sure we plan for our dining reservations and make our FastPass+ selections.  In addition, we make sure to adhere to our seven best practices for a day at Disney.  Following these practices are certain to make your trip easier, more enjoyable, and guaranteed to deliver the maximum amount of fun on your vacation.  Here are our seven best practices for a day at Disney!

7 . Pack a Bag

While it may slow you down a little bit on entering a park, packing a bag with everything you may need is a great way to make your day better.  Be sure to pack disposable ponchos in case you get stuck in an afternoon thunderstorm.  We also like to make sure we pack some snacks, a couple bottles of water, and even a spare pair of socks (in case we decide we want to get drenched by riding Kali River Rapids).  Another definite thing you want to pack is a spare battery pack for your phones – the My Disney Experience app uses a lot of battery, so you will always want to make sure that you have a full charge to be able to make any reservations that you need!

6. Afternoon Break

Florida gets hot and it is the hottest during the afternoon.  We always recommend taking a break after lunch until dinner time so you can get out of the hottest part of the day.  During this time we like to head back to our resort and enjoy one of the refreshing pools or just take a nap and recharge our batteries for a lovely evening in the parks.
