A Disney World Vacation can be overwhelming with all the options from dining to what park to go to and what rides to hit. How can you make the most of your Disney trip? Make a park plan before you go!
Whether you are a zealous planner or detest it entirely, there are several sites and apps to help you on your park planning journey. On the Disney website, you can create your own custom park maps by clicking here. You can select only the rides that you want to go on, so your maps are custom to your park plan. These maps also make great keepsake items!
Crowd calendars can be lifesavers if you are trying to figure out which park to go to and on what day. You can get crowd calendars at easywdw.com or touringplans.com to help you maximize the time you spend on rides versus waiting in line. Touringplans.com also has a cool feature to optimize your touring plans to decrease ride wait time. They also have some pre-made touring plans for various demographic groups such as families with tweens.
For dining, sites like disneydining.com or even Chip and Co have great dining reviews and snack ideas that can be incorporated into your park plan. You don’t want to miss out on all the culinary options that Disney has, especially during Food and Wine Festival!
There are many ways to create anything from a quick, painless park plan outline to an intricate, highly detailed park plan before you go. Created park plans can be saved in a binder or in an app like TripIt, MouseTrips, or My Disney Experience. Some items can be done spontaneously on your trip, but other popular attractions and dining options require a little pre-planning to ensure you get the Mouse-cation you were dreaming of.
When in doubt, I plan it out! Let’s hear how you make your park plans!
