Though a family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort in sunny, funny Orlando, Florida may sound tempting, you probably find yourself with certain reservations about the whole thing – and not the good kind, like a reservation at a luxury resort hotel or fancy restaurant, but the bad kind. Disney reservations can be the kind that make you doubt that a Disney vacation will please every member of your family, or the kind that make you think that even if it is perfect for you and your family, you could never afford it. And if you are all grown up, you might think that the most magical place on earth will be, well, kinda boring and childish.
These negative reservations couldn’t be further from the truth. First, there is truly something for everyone at Walt Disney World Resort, regardless of their age, gender, or upbringing. Each guest will find something special that they enjoy enough to make the trip worthwhile. Heck, they’ll find more than one, and just as there is an attraction, restaurant, show, or experience that suits each guest’s fancy, there is a vacation package to fit their budget. You can make a little bit go a long way when it comes to paying for a Walt Disney World vacation for you and your friends and family with whom you are sharing the aforementioned vacation.
Something For Everyone
There truly is something unique for everyone to enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort. There is such a variety of attractions, events, and entertainment to take in. Saying you won’t find something you enjoy at Walt Disney World is like saying you don’t like food or entertainment. Speaking of food, there are also all varieties of food at Walt Disney World. From what you eat to where you stay to what you do, there are endless possibilities for fun!
Great Options At Disney World
If you have someone with peculiar – which is a polite way to say ‘picky’ – tastes in your vacation group, avoid some of the more iconic and a tourist-y attractions like the “Small World” ride and staring at the beauty of Cinderella’s Castle. Instead you might want to consider these other options. Try out one of the lesser known parks like Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Few people know of this “Golden Age of Hollywood” theme park boasting attractions, decorations and dining as fine as that “other” tinsel-town theme park – Universal Studios, also located in Orlando.
Otherwise, the member of your travel group with more distinguished tastes may enjoy Disney’s permanently installed show from the famous touring circus group Cirque Du Soleil. La Nouba is the name of this fantastic show featuring 65 performers from 15 different countries – all performing amazing feats of acrobatics and dance.
Other off the wall entertainment to take in around the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort comes in the form of some of the non-theme park areas, like Disney Springs, Disney’s BoardWalk, and other themed areas like the Old Port Royale Area in their Disney’s Carribean Beach Resort. Disney guests can enjoy the finest in unique shopping, premier dining, and enchanting entertainment outside of the theme park hours, crowds and activities. It’s also good to be aware of some of Disney’s more “alternative” attractions in case seasonal or weather closures keep you from seeing some of the more mainstream ones.
Besides which theme park to visit on which day, what sights to see, and where to eat, you and your vacation party will need a place to sleep. Hard to believe that you will have much time to sleep with all there is to do, but you will indeed need to sleep. Whether or not you want to is another story.
Disney offers all kinds of lodging options, ranging from campgrounds to the creme de la creme of deluxe villas and luxury resort hotels. The options for your visit depend only on your budget, rather than your imagination.
Members of the Disney Vacation Club Time Share Program can take in a stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and enjoy a little coffee with their wildlife in the morning. They also have special access to Disney’s Old Key West Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. Both are exemplary models of service, cleanliness, convenience and fun!
If you are not a member of the Disney Vacation Club (also known by insiders as the DVC), fear not. There are plenty of options that will tickle your fancy. For example Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Beach Club Resort. and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort are all about as luxurious and deluxe as resort hotels come – complete with amazing lobbies, well equipped rooms, and superior dining experiences. There are also a wide range of other lodging options, from Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort to Disney’s Pop Century Resort, from Disney’s Contemporary Resort to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.
There are endless lodgings available to you and your friends or family, each equipped with on-site restaurants, shops and entertainment to optimize your enjoyment of your Disney vacation experience. These resort hotels also come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges so as to accommodate your budget. From value campgrounds to moderate resort hotels to deluxe villas, Disney has the right bed for the right price for you.
Not only does Disney boast every type of food imaginable, readily available for your culinary sampling, but they also have dining plans to make their food more affordable. On average, a Disney Dining Plan will cut the cost of food by about 30%. A dining plan also makes finding places to eat easier and more convenient by keeping track of everything on one receipt, rather than having to balance a food budget while on vacation.
Disney Vacation Packages
The last way to turn your reservations into, well, reservations is to book a vacation package – the Magic Your Way Package, for example. This package starts with a base ticket that is good for one theme park ticket per person covered by your package per day for the length of your visit to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida. You can bundle the cost of a stay at select Disney resort hotels and a dining plan in with your base ticket package.
There are other customizations and special offers that can be added to your magic you way package as well. On average, the Magic Your Way Package saves you 30% – 50%. So, what are you waiting for?
