Disney World isn’t a place that I have much of a desire to visit but due to a special little guy, I might just have to suck it up and go at some point in the not so distant future.
I had the chance to visit Disneyland in California when I was around 10 or 11 years old but have never been to Disney World. I don’t really remember much about my visit to Disneyland so to me that speaks volumes to say how little I probably enjoyed it.
Being that I’m not a fan of amusement park rides or waiting on long lines, Disney just doesn’t excite me as a place I need to go ever again. Oh and don’t forget about the outrageous ticket prices.
However with Lucas really liking Mickey and friends I think it would be an amazing surprise for him to go to a Disney park. I’m not sure when that time will come but I might have to give in and take him within the next year or so.
I’ve heard that Disney World could be overwhelming due to the size of the parks. I’d guess that you could easily get lost and wander around wasting a substantial amount of the days.
Fodor’s comes out with their annual Walt Disney World with Kids guidebook. The authors of the book put together an article on Fodors.com which could help make your visit to Disney a bit easier.
The article is called 10 Things NOT to Do at Walt Disney World.
Here are the tips from the article:
- Sleep in and arrive at the parks whenever you feel like it

- “Wing It”
