5. Budget for Snacks
Disney World has some of the funnest snacks! And a quick snack break could be just what your crew needs to rest and reset for more fun. But in order to stay on track with the resolution of #1, don’t forget to add snacks into your Disney budget. If you’re on the Dining Plan, this is obviously a non-issue, but if you’re paying out of pocket, be sure to plan for at least $5 per day per person for snacks. While your feet rest (and your blood sugar gets a jolt), you’ll be glad you did!
6. Take a Pool or Beach Day
Even the best, most relaxed day at the Disney parks can still be physically tiring simply because there’s a lot of walking involved. In order to fully recharge and get into vacay-mode before heading home, consider adding a do-nothing pool or beach day at the end of your trip. Budgeting in an extra night at the resort or an add-on trip to the coast could be just what you need to fully unwind and process through those Disney memories. Yes, it’s extra money, but it may be worth it when you consider the end goal of avoiding exhaustion.
It sounds simple, but…don’t forget to smile! Your positive attitude is life-giving for yourself and your whole crew (especially kids). Set the tone for happiness, and you’ll automatically combat exhaustion.
It can be done! Slow your pace, revamp your expectations, plan for success, and focus on your important people, and your Disney vacation will truly feel like vacation. Here’s to a restful, relaxing, anything-but-exhausting trip to Walt Disney World!
