There’s so much discussion about how to make the most of your Walt Disney World vacation. The amount of planning that’s needed months before the trip is higher than ever. While preparing for our recent vacation in March, I was nervous about handling the Spring Break crowds. We normally visit in January but shifted the time of year now that my daughters are older. For the most part, those fears were unfounded. However, the crowded days require that you make the right touring choices. We had a great time on our vacation, but there were a few unfortunate moves that I’d like to try again.
This episode of The Tomorrow Society Podcast includes five rookie mistakes that I made before and during this trip. The issues were minor, but a Disney World fan’s mind is obsessive. I discuss seven highlights from our trip, including Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. That show was one of my favorite moments, which might surprise you based on the lukewarm reaction from many fans. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for six nights and had another great experience at the beautiful resort. This trip report also covers why that resort works so well.
I also discuss my latest experience with FastPass Plus and the MagicBands, the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, and my first time using Memory Maker. There was plenty to cover from our five days in the parks, including a brief trip to the condensed version of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I’m already thinking about my next visit to check out Pandora.
