Walt Disney World is the perfect vacation destination most simply put because the company sets itself to a higher standard. Other vacation destinations look to Disney as the leader in the entertainment and tourism industry for a reason. The following list includes my reasons why Disney is the perfect destination for your next vacation:
9. The weather
Who doesn’t love Florida weather? Okay, so you might not be a huge fan of the summer heat and humidity, but in general if you’re traveling to Florida from a colder climate, the weather might make Disney World top the list for the perfect vacation destination for you.
8. So many things to do
Walt Disney World is not just a theme park—if you’re reading this article, you’re probably in agreement with me that it’s the perfect vacation destination. Disney is not only theme parks, there’s also water parks, Disney Springs, elaborately themed resorts, miniature golf, and a wide variety of recreational activities like golf, parasailing, and fishing, just to name a few.
7. Attention to detail
Disney theme parks have a level of attention to detail that is unheard of in other destinations in the industry. Each time you enter a Disney park, you are transported to a different place and time. Instead of just having a ride built for the heck of it, Disney’s rides immerse guests into new environments and stories, that add so much to the overall experience.
The theming and attention to detail found in the theme parks unsurprisingly is one of the biggest selling points of staying at a Disney resort. Only in Disney can guests stay in a Polynesian Village, situated on a lake in Florida, or in rooms that overlook African savannahs, allowing for views of exotic animals right from your hotel room balcony. By staying at Disney resorts, the Disney magic will be around you at all times on your vacation, a huge factor in choosing this resort rather than any other destination.
5. Guest service
The guest service at Walt Disney World maintains a standard of excellence that is difficult to come by at other destinations. I cannot think of another place where custodial cast members would have “guest services” embroidered onto their costumes. In Disney, every cast member you encounter upholds the high standard of Disney’s tradition in guest services. Cast members will go above and beyond to make guests happy in ways that are unheard of in other environments.
Walt Disney World is home to some of the best food I’ve ever had. Nothing can compare to a stroll around Epcot eating (or drinking) around the world, or getting dinner reservations at Ohana or Citricos. The food in Disney simply does not compare with the food from other vacation destinations. And like so many parts of a Disney vacation, it is not difficult to find dining options that would please everyone in your party.
3. The best way to celebrate
If you have anything special to celebrate, Walt Disney World is the place to go. From birthdays and anniversaries to family reunions and even things like passing all your classes or moving into your new apartment, there’s always something to celebrate during a trip to Disney. There’s no better way to celebrate than with birthday cupcakes, or “happy anniversary” greetings from cast members, and of course trips just have a whole different feel to them when you’re celebrating something special.
2. The magic
Disney has a special kind of magic that other vacation destinations simply cannot provide. You’ll feel it when you walk down Main Street U.S.A., or when Sorcerer Mickey comes out at the end of Fantasmic. The Disney magic is what draws guests to keep coming back year after year, and it is something that cannot be copied and experienced at other destinations.
1. A vacation everyone will enjoy
From thrill junkies to toddlers, couples, grandparents, even solo travelers, the Walt Disney World resort truly offers something that everyone can enjoy. Whether it be things like Happily Ever After fireworks, that has the power to entertain and wow audiences of any age or background, or things like Disney Junior Live on Stage, which appeals primarily to the younger crowd, anyone can find things that he or she enjoys at Walt Disney World. It would be very difficult to find another vacation destination that can please the entire family in the same way that Disney does.
