Tips for a Great Visit to Disneyworld

When it comes to having a relaxing or romantic couple’s vacation, the words “Disney World” don’t exactly fit.  Even mentioning the words “Disney World” to some adults could bring about an involuntary twitch.

You just need to know where to look, and how to plan a different type of vacation than the standard family Disney trip. If you want help planning your Disney trip, contact us – we are happy to help.  We travel there every spring with family and our friends who helped us start our Mesa Towing business almost 10 years ago. So from personal experience, here are our top things to do at Disney World!

Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Disney’s Magic Kingdom was the first-ever attraction to open at Orlando’s sprawling Walt Disney World back in 1971, and still remains one of the most popular theme parks on the planet. With the famous Cinderella Castle as its focal point, the park assures a long checklist of Disney-inspired trips, roller coasters, as well as destinations spread out across a huge 107-acre site a short drive southwest from downtown Orlando.

Epcot

Taking a fun and educational approach to entertainment, Epcot does not focus on the roller coasters and famous characters which are firm fixtures of the other 3 parks that make up Disney World. Instead, Epcot has 2 areas: Future World, demonstrating human endeavor and innovation, along with World Showcase, which is effectively a permanent world’s fair with 11 nations represented around a giant man made lake.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the main theme park in this area, drawing in millions of tourists every year with its range of shows, rides, and beautiful attractions. Inspired by Disney’s 1930s and 1940s films, the huge site spans 135 acres of southwest Orlando, making up a quarter of the wider Walt Disney World complex, which includes the other theme parks of Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Animal Kingdom.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is 1 of 2 water parks at the massive Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. Contrasted to Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon provides a little bit more selection in terms of points to do, with chances to stand up near different types of sea life, along with a few even more standard slides as well as flumes. Tropical cyclone Lagoon has an excellent 10 or so water slides, including the 2-person rollercoaster raft-like ‘Crush ‘n’ Gusher’.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom Disney Theme Park is one of the biggest animal parks in the world, with real-life animals as well as interesting flights and also experiences to pick from. Among the 4 theme parks that make up the Walt Disney World Resort, see Disney’s pet personalities revive, with African elephants, gorillas, and lions all located right here. There is also a wide choice of interactive attractions, consisting of pet experiences, safaris, and enjoyable jungle treks and expedition routes.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach

Disney’s Blizzard Beach is 1 of 2 water theme parks in the sprawling Walt Disney World Resort. It is located just a few miles southwest of central Orlando. The concept at this park is rather wacky but undeniably fun; it’s built around the idea that it was once a ski-resort which ‘melted into a watery wonderland’. There are plenty of other, less hair-raising slides and attractions to keep the whole family occupied for the day. 

Finding Nemo

This is a live-action stage show featuring Disney Pixar’s best-loved characters from Finding Nemo – in puppet form. The musical performance includes some mind-blowing songs for the whole family to enjoy. Just like the movie, the musical version of the wonderful Finding Nemo story is both humorous and heart-warming.
