If It’s Been a While Since You’ve Been to Disney, Know Before You Go

Recently a family member who has not been to Walt Disney Globe in three decades was excited to share with me the information of her impending excursion. What this family member didn’t know, and was shocked to hear, was that so significantly has improved about organizing and vacationing. She felt overwhelmed. I imagined it was a excellent time as we see Spring 2022 ahead of us to spotlight what a Walt Disney Planet vacationer who hasn’t been in awhile has skipped. A debriefing so to converse of what she truly wants to know, highlighting essential strategies so she understands that it is the very same Walt Disney Globe, but with important adjustments that will affect her preparing ahead.

It’s been awhile. And whilst us die hard Disneyphiles who never ever skip a each day DIS Day by day Updates newsletter in our e mail inboxes, a lot of other individuals just suppose it is the similar put and nothing has adjusted. These vacationers go to Walt Disney Earth possibly when every couple yrs and do not comply with the ever-modifying landscape on social media. They have other hobbies, other holidays, and Walt Disney Globe information is not their go-to each day interest.

So in which do we get started, my close friends? She had just acquired on her possess that the Disney Eating Strategy is at this time not becoming offered, so that was a begin. Help me to help my spouse and children get back again “in the know” about what she’s missed in 3 a long time. What are your highlights and solutions for her? Be sure to comment down below! This is what our discussion was like, and boy was she amazed.

There is no complimentary ground transportation provider to and from the airport anymore….

She experienced no thought Disney’s Magical Convey service had ended. I envisioned her just exhibiting up, leaving her baggage sitting on your own on the baggage carousel and just assuming a no cost bus would be waiting around for her. Not the scenario. Obtain your have transportation, I defined, or spend for a new ground transportation solution like the Sunshine Flyer from the Orlando Intercontinental Airport (MCO).

You will need a Theme Park Reservation in addition to your
legitimate admission ticket. They are not the identical.

This is obvious to us, I know, but to a person who has not been due to the fact in advance of the 2020 alterations, it is confusing. You want to have a valid theme park ticket AND ALSO a park move reservation by using the Park Pass Procedure. She asked if it can be booked and planned the working day prior. Sure, technically, but as a planner, I like to know for absolutely sure that park will be available to me. I also assume many newcomers read through the web page and it states guide your park pass reservation and they in all probability just believe it suggests ebook your tickets, not being familiar with they aren’t the exact. Know ahead of you go…

You are not allowed to park hop right before 2 p.m.

Hold out, what? Accurate, it’s been awhile, I know, and assuming she ordered a ticket with the park hopping solution, she may well not go to Animal Kingdom, delight in a safari ride and hop on above to Epcot by 10 a.m. I’m looking ahead to this time staying transformed (possibly midday time or not at all), but as of now, this is the guideline. She experienced no thought.

Housekeeping no for a longer time does a complete cleansing

This was truly her extremely initial dilemma for me. What does housekeeping in fact do and do they nonetheless enter your space? For me, I no longer want anyone touching my bed in a resort room though on house. But for her, she was very fascinated in wanting to understand what modified cleaning meant and go through about it on their website but could not very keep in mind how it assorted from just before. In a nutshell, they never contact your mattress and your room is totally cleaned prior to moving into on day one. That was my emphasize.

Use your Walt Disney Environment application for cell purchasing

Now a lot more then ever rapid service dining places are quickly available, changing long wait around strains as a result of the WDW app. Use it. I really don’t even assume she has the app on her cell phone. I explained that she essential to download the My Disney Knowledge app, apply at property, update it before her journey, and use it when in the parks.

I could have gone on with her for a large amount longer describing to her the a lot of improvements she has missed in three several years, but I did not want to overwhelm her. If it is too much, I will recommend Dreams Unlimited Journey planners to aid her with her setting up and navigate her to our DIS local community and social media. What do you consider someone need to actually know who hasn’t been to Walt Disney Entire world in a twenty minute mobile phone phone? Is it the 50th Anniversary celebrations, Covid-19 mandates, that FastPass is no for a longer period complimentary and has a new title, new sights have and will be opening, the new night fireworks demonstrates, or most likely some resorts have renovated and recently opened due to the fact she’s been there past? Let me know what to inform her under the upcoming time we chat…
