7 Dwarfs Mine Train

12. Daily schedule

If this is your first trip to Disney World, understand that you and your family will walk several miles per day. Consider preparing by walking around your neighborhood before your trip. With little children, try to keep them on their regular schedule, as much as possible. Stroller rentals are available in the parks or you can bring your own. In the summer, take afternoon breaks back at your hotel for a swim and/or nap. Wear comfortable shoes. As far as park hours, arriving at park opening will allow you to experience several attractions before the crowds arrive. Also, Disney hotel guests can enjoy Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks, on select days. These include one extra hour in the morning and two hours after official park closing.
