Just returned from my 3rd trip to Walt Disney World in 2 years and I have to say that it was JUST as fun as each of the others. I think it's impossible not to have a good time at WDW. We stayed at Pop Century and went for 6 days. I'm convinced that for me, my ideal timeframe is definitely 6 days at a minimum if I plan to do all of the parks and not kill myself along the way. This trip was at the end of May and was still pretty good from a crowd control perspective but it was VERY hot and humid. That was a bit surprising but we got through it. Following is a topline review of my week in the parks.
I am in the midst of planning for a trip to Walt Disney World and wanted to share some of my tips and tricks with you all while they’re fresh in my brain. (Disclaimer, this is probably going to be a long post.)
As a kid from Wisconsin, getting to go to WDW was the holy grail of trips. We’d beg and beg and beg to go each year. About every four years the time would come when my family would pile into our mini van and make the drive down to Orlando from Milwaukee. In 2001 we had our very last family vacation to WDW and that was it.
In 2015 the time finally came for me to venture back to Florida! A lot had obviously changed from the good ‘ole days and I was a bit overwhelmed as to where to begin. Luckily there are some incredible resources out there for us first-timers (‘cause let’s be honest, after a 20 year break, it really did feel like the first time all over again).
Since 2015, I’ve been back every year and have started to hone in on my planning process. That’s what I’m going to share today.
