Add In a Rest Day (or Two)
If you plan on being at Disney for more than three days or so, we recommend building a rest day into the middle of your trip.
No, we’re not talking about sitting around doing nothing on your rest day. It’s just a day where you can avoid the parks and try to do more relaxing, less-stimulating things—swimming, watching movies, mini golf, eating out, etc.
Use the Spas
Another great thing to do on that rest day is visit one of the onsite spas. There are a few different spas on Disney property. All are located in Deluxe Resorts and all offer absolutely fabulous treatments. Booking a massage or any other type of relaxation session is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated.
Take Afternoon Breaks
You can also sneak in some relaxation by planning in afternoon breaks. The parks are the most crowded in the afternoons, and the weather can get pretty hot during those afternoon hours besides.
By hitting the parks at opening, leaving to take a midday nap back at the hotel, and heading back to the parks around dinner time, you’ll miss the biggest crowds and hottest weather and get in some extra rest. Seriously, don’t underestimate this tip, folks.
Get off your feet some of the time by planning to see as many shows as possible. Most Disney shows have seating of one kind or another, and they can be anywhere from 10–40 minutes long. These are a great opportunity to rest your feet while still being immersed in the magic of Disney.
