Disney In A Weekend
The Walt Disney World Resort can be a lot to take in, even if you have a whole week to dedicate to exploring the 31,000 acres of family fun. But if you don’t have a full week or more to see everything there is at Disney, how would you even begin to go about exploring the Happiest Place on Earth in just a short weekend or in a few days? While there are many people who spend their entire vacation here in Central Florida, some guests only have a small period of time to see it all, so we at OrlandoFunTickets.com have developed a how-to guide to doing Disney in a weekend. We hope some of these tips will help you see more of the property – in record time!

Now that you have your tickets in order, it is time to start devising your strategy for seeing Disney in a weekend. By planning ahead and prioritizing what exactly you want to do at each park, you can make a concrete list of things that you have to see, things you would like to see if you had time and things that you could live without seeing. Once you have your list in order, it is time to formulate a plan! We would first of all like to suggest that you do two parks each day, therefore essentially giving you a half-day in each of the four Disney theme parks. If you try to see more than two in one day, while it is a feasible feat, the time it takes just in transportation to and from the parks will drastically cut down on the time you have to let loose and have fun!
If you are trying to decide what parks to do when, it may be a good idea to save the parks with the best nighttime shows for your evenings. Epcot’s Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, and the Magic Kingdom Park’s Wishes are the two most popular end-of-day fireworks displays at the Walt Disney Word Resort, so you may want to save those two parks for the second half of the day so you will not have to come back at the end of the day just to catch the show. Disney’s Hollywood Studios does have a great half-hour show in Fantasmic! each evening as well, so if that ranks up there with you, then this park could also be a good choice to end your day. But whichever two parks you choose for the evening, just be sure to check ahead to see what time they close – Epcot will almost always close at 9 p.m., but the other three parks fluctuate drastically throughout the year, and the Magic Kingdom Park closes early the most for special after-hours events, such as the Pirate and Princess Party. Knowing these things ahead of time, along with what park has Extra Magic Hours on what day if you are staying at a hotel on Disney property, can help you make the right decisions and maximize your time in the parks.
Another few tips to keep in mind include making dining reservations ahead of time to cut down on time waiting for a table, making the best use of the Disney FASTPASS system, arriving at the park before the gates open to hit the key attractions early and – most of all – just enjoy yourself! Realize before you come that you will not get to see and do everything, and set your family’s expectations as such as well. Before you know it, you too can become a Walt Disney World Resort park-hopping connoisseur!
