This month we are running a special giveaway. A lucky visitor to the blog will win Ultimate Disney tickets. This pair of 14-day passes allow you and a partner, friend or family member into the six Disney theme parks in Orlando, Florida. The prize comes courtesy of Ocean Florida, who some great offers on Disney trips. They’ll award the tickets to the person who’s picked at random from the rafflecopter, which you’ll find at the bottom of this post.
I’m excited for the winner. All the best of luck to everyone who enters.
The land of spectacle, magic and light is a place I’ve always wanted to visit. I still haven’t been, though – I need to change that soon! To help anyone who’s going – whether or not you win the Ultimate Disney tickets – I asked some travel blogging friends for their top tips on visiting Disney Florida with children.
Prepare to dress like a prince or princess
Karen from Mini Travellers said:
“We, like many of you, have a full box of Disney fancy dress, so we packed it. If you stuff it in a zip-lock bag it actually presses down quite small, and your little ones can wear their very own outfits to meet the characters. Then you won’t have to buy it there when you’ve realised they ‘need’ it.”
Pick an accommodation option that suits you
Lisa from Travel Loving Family says:
“There are many pro’s to staying in a Disney resort hotel, including the exclusive time hotel guests have to enjoy the parks before they officially open to the public. But I would personally enjoy the extra room a private villa with a pool can provide, for evening BBQ’s and relaxing in the evenings with my husband.”
Dress for the weather
Carrie from Flying with a Baby said:
“bring a cheap poncho with you – or buy one for $1 at Walmart. They are more expensive in the park, and when we visited, child sizes had sold out in some stores onsite.”
Plan your time at Disney – but remember to go with the flow
Jennifer from Jen’s Little World says:
“Plan to do as many of the big rides as you can in the first few hours while the park is quieter, then you can do the larger capacity attractions, like the shows and parades, during the busier parts of the day.”
Chloe from Sorry about the Mess says:
“Have a plan for each day, but also be prepared that the plan might need to change. Sometimes the happiest way is to just go with the flow.”
Do you have any tips for visiting Disney, with or without kids?
