Those experiences are what make guests choose a Disney vacation over and over again and keep them coming back for more. Here are seven reasons why Disney is the clear vacation choice of many guests.
7. Disney Resorts –
One of the best parts of a Walt Disney World vacation is being able to enjoy the Disney Resorts. With over twenty options to choose from, they are divided into three categories with Deluxe being the most expensive, Value being the most reasonable, and Moderate falling somewhere in the middle. Having three categories makes them affordable for every guest and no matter what category a Disney Resort falls into, it features an amazing theme, amenities, pools, recreation, dining, and shopping for guests to enjoy.
6. The Mountains –
One experience that every guest has to enjoy on a Disney vacation is conquering the mountains. Walt Disney World is home to a unique mountain range spanned across two parks. In the Magic Kingdom there is Splash Mountain in Frontierland which invites guests on an adventure with Br’er Rabbit that culminates with a thrilling dive into the Briar Patch. Located right next door is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad which brings guests into the town of Tumbleweed for the wildest ride in the wilderness on a runaway train. In New Fantasyland is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which allows guests to explore the mines where the Seven Dwarfs work while enjoying beautiful views of nearby Fantasyland and Storybook Circus. Finally in the Magic Kingdom is Space Mountain in Tomorrowland which blasts guests off into the galaxy for a thrilling adventure in near darkness. The final mountain in Walt Disney World can be found in the Asia section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and sends guests deep into mythical territory. Expedition Everest begins as a serene tea train ride but soon turns thrilling as guests find themselves deep inside the Forbidden Mountain and face to face with the fabled Yeti.
