We stayed at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club, where the conference took place, so we got a very good rate, but if you plan in advance you can get a good rate at one our favorite Walt Disney Resorts!

Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club, It’s beautiful! Day and night. I can’t tell you all about it in this post but I’m working on a vlog review about it, so stay tuned!

But I have to tell you, the pools are huge, with a lazy river and a slide.

You can walk to Epcot

15 minute boat ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios we were 15 minutes away form Typhon Lagoon Waterpark. Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom were about 20 minutes away on a bus.

That’s why I say, Location is so important! When choosing your Walt Disney World Resort look for the closest to parks either by boat, monorail or walking distance, all Walt Disney World Resort offer the bus service to all Disney Parks, Waterparks and Disney Springs and it’s free but the closest you’re to the parks the more you can enjoy your day.

It’s extremely simple to add a Fastpass but there are some rules.

  • You can only have 3 Fastpasses at a time for the same Disney Park per day.
  • Once you used all 3 Fastpasses you can keep adding up to 3 Fastpasses.

For example the first day of our trip we went to Epcot.

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
I added Fastpasses for,Test Track our favorite ride! Soaring and Mission: Space at 12:30pm.

After I used the last Fastpass I was able to add more for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can keep doing this all day long. So easy and it gives you time to enjoy the parks. (Don’t laugh about my “sexy” face)

By the way, all your information is on your Magic band, this is your room key and it has your Fastpasses and you can add a password to make purchases, plus how cute is my favorite accessory!

Plan Relaxing Time

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
I know we’re all excited about hitting Disney Parks and go on as many rides as we can in one day, but if you’re going to be at Walt Disney World Resort for several days, you have to plan some relaxing time specially if you have a husband and kids! They can’t take it as well as we Disney Moms can! Am I right or am I right?

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
We’ve been to Walt Disney World Resort about 4 times and during our visits I learned how to plan our days and truly enjoy our visit.

Usually the weather in Orlando is humid and hot, specially if you visit between May and October, so walking around the parks under this extreme weather could be exhausting for everyone!

So here’s what I did:

  • I planned later days instead of early days. This way the weather wasn’t as hot, we enjoyed the pool in the morning and stayed as late as possible in the park when the weather wasn’t as hot and the lines on the rides are much smaller.

  • A few days we started early around 9am and watch the day parades and shows, such as Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom one of our favorites! But we ended our day around 6pm, went back to the resort, enjoyed the pool and had a late dinner.

I’ve never done it this way and let me tell you my family really enjoyed our days at the parks, no one was grumpy or tired in fact at 9pm they wanted to keep going because they were very well rested.

Take Advantage of Magic Mornings and Nights

You have to take advantage of Magic Mornings and Nights at the Disney Parks, which is exclusive for guests of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
You can find the schedule for Magic Mornings and Nights at the Disney Parks on My Disney Experience, this will help you plan your days much better. For example if Morning Magic hours are at Magic Kingdom, start your day early and take advantage of the short wait times.

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
If Epcot has Magic Night hours start your day late so you can enjoy walking around the almost empty park I took this photo around 10:30pm, Magic hours that day were 9pm to 11pm it was one of our favorite times! And the wait at the rides about 15 minutes!

Dining at Disney Parks Has its Perks

Another way to enjoy Disney Parks at night is to dine there! Sometimes the park closes at 9pm but you might still having dinner at a restaurant in the park and when you exit the restaurant you’ll be able to walk around the almost empty park, it’s amazing! One of my favorite times at Disney Parks! And another reason to dine at the Disney Parks. The photo is from Coral Reef at Epcot, delicious!

Bring Snacks and lots of water

In case you don’t know, you can bring any kind of food and beverages (Except alcohol and glass) to all Disney Parks. Bringing snacks and lots of water saves you lots of not only money but time as well because you don’t have to stop at the food carts around the parks between rides.

Of course you gotta buy some treats, they’re delicious! We always have ice cream when at Disney Parks!

No need to be a professional photographer. Make Magical Memories with Memory Maker

When visiting Walt Disney World you want to capture every single moment correct? But as a mom, I sometimes find myself or better yet don’t find myself in the Disney pictures because I take most of them!

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
That’s why I love Memory Maker because it allows everyone to be in the picture and have fun! Memory Maker allows you to Snap Up Unlimited Disney Photos using Disney PhotoPass Photographers and  Download them to any device, share them and print them.

Plus they add Disney Magic to your photos like they did to this one and  my first photo on this post, Is that Tinker Bell on  the palm of our hands?

Magic Shots add Disney Characters and other fun surprises to your photos after they’re taken. We had so much fun pretending when they took our photo and when we saw the results.

Relish shots that only the magic of Disney can deliver—like an amazing slow-motion video as you zoom around a corner on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

Best tips to plan your visit and enjoy walt disney world
My best tip is to let your self go when visiting Walt Disney World, be a kid again! Enjoy every moment, have lots of fun and treasure all your Disney memories which are the best!

Disclosure: I was invited to 2016 Disney Social Media Moms Conference and for a fee we received park tickets, fastpasses, Memory Maker and lots of fun perks! But as always and as a BIG Disney fan, all my opinions are my own.
