When your family is planning your next vacation there are many places to choose from. You want to pick a place that the whole family can agree on. This is an exciting time but with the money you spend on a vacation you want to choose wisely. Here are seven reasons why we think that Walt Disney World is a great choice.
7) It’s the Happiest Place on Earth
Now yes, that is the slogan for Walt Disney World, but it’s only because it’s true. The memories you make with your family and friends are priceless and will last a lifetime. You’ll escape into a whole new world where dreams come true. Adults can bring out their inner kid and not get strange looks. Everyone can walk around wearing Mickey Ears and a Disney T-Shirt, you’ll fit in perfectly. Disney World is built where you cannot see the outside world so you are truly in a different land.
6) There Is Something for the Whole Family
Walt Disney World truly has something to offer everyone. The thrill seeker in the family will have a great time on rides like Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, while those who like rides a little calmer will still have plenty to choose from. If you like movie themed rides there are rides like Star Tours. The whole family can ride a classic like It’s a Small World and sing along together. There are great shows and restaurants, and everyone in your family will smile when they think back to these amazing memories.
5) Florida Winters
While the rest of the country is getting snow in the winter, Florida receives lots of sunshine. Of course, there are random cold spells, but they are nothing compared to all the feet of snow in other parts of the country. Pack your shorts because there is a good chance you’ll need them. Also, be sure to check the weather forecast right before you leave for your vacation because you might want a jacket, especially when the sun goes down in the winter. As locals will say, it’s why we put up with the hot summers; to get the amazing winters.
4) Fun Special Events
One of the great things about Walt Disney World is their special events. You can come at different times of the year and there will be different events going on all over the resort. Around Christmas on select nights at Magic Kingdom you can enjoy Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Around Halloween you can go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is perfect for that Star Wars fan in the family. At Epcot you can taste foods from all around the world during Epcot International Food & Wine Festival or see some incredible work during Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. There are many more events that happen throughout the year that your whole family will love.
3) It’s More Than Just Theme Parks
Of course, when you think about Walt Disney World the first thought that comes to mind is the theme parks, but there is so much more than that. Disney Springs is full of great shops and restaurants that everyone will love. The Disney resorts are incredible and you can spend a more relaxed day resort hopping. Disney’s BoardWalk has street performers every night from 7 to 10 that will entertain the crowds, and you can see some incredible animals over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
2) Meet Your Favorite Disney Characters
Meeting Disney characters isn’t just for kids. Adults get excited when they see Mickey for the first time too. Of course your kids will light up when they meet their favorite Disney Princess. These are some of the memories that will last a lifetime, and pictures that you will want to cherish forever. Disney does characters up big and you’ll definitely want to meet as many as you can.
Walt Disney World takes great pride in their rides. They are not your typical rides that you’ll see at any theme park. Disney puts you in the middle of your favorite Disney movies. All members of your family will find a ride that they will love. For some the thrill factor may be higher than others, but everyone is sure to have a great time together.
