Disney is the best place on earth – I think we can all agree on that, right? But it can be really quite expensive, especially if you’re travelling from abroad to visit and have had to book flights, accommodation and get food for all the family too. Then throw in the park tickets on top of that, along with all the merchandise the kids are wanting – you can see why it’s the holiday of a lifetime for many families!
But if you play your cards right, you can have a lot of extra fun on your Disney holiday without splashing all the extra cash. All the below are available to any Disney guest for free – have fun!
We Disney fans like to get as much Disney insider info as we possibly can, whether that’s taking one of the Backstage Magic behind the scenes tours (so excited to hopefully be doing Marceline to Magic Kingdom next year!) or reading up on where the creators have stealthed away Hidden Mickeys in the background of movies.
I like to think of myself as somewhat of a seasoned Disney traveller. I’ve visited the parks more times than I can count and had (I think!) 12 Disney holidays in my life. And over this time I’ve figured a few things that are a necessity for your days in the parks. I’m sure there will be plenty of others too, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you need in the parks, but here are my musts when visiting WDW – mostly related to two main things: being outside and moving around a lot.
