OK, there are a lot of Disney World tips books, tips websites, friends with tips, tips magazine articles, and tips blogs articles. So why another Disney World tip book?
The problem with Disney World tips books is that they aren’t full of that many tips.
Some of the tips books are one tip per page, with lots of explanation about why that tip is great.
Some books are full of stories about why they decided to share certain tips.
Some tips books are just about dining; some are about money; and some are about taking kids.
And, some tips are found in the midst of an 800-page guide book. Ouch!
This book is all about tips – 250 of them! There’s no philosophy of tips, no long stories about how magical a tip made my vacation, and never just one tip per page.
If you want tips, then this is your book. It’s only 45 pages, but it is full of tips. There are tips about each park, tips about dining, tips about where you can take a nap in each park (for real!), tips about getting around Disney World, and tips about which attractions might be too scary for your kids.
If you want a guide book to Disney World, then check out our book, A Short and Sweet Introduction to Walt Disney World Resort (shameless plug). If you want a seemingly nonstop list of tip after tip, then this is the book you want to read!
Excerpts from “250 Tips and Tricks for Walt Disney World Resort”:
MAGIC KINGDOM: “When leaving the park from Adventureland, cut across in front of the Crystal Palace Restaurant instead of following the sidewalk directly to Main St.”
EPCOT: “Is it raining? Duck into the interactive parts of most Future World rides, the shops in the countries of World Showcase, The American Adventure show, or any of the country movies (Canada, France, and China).”
HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS: “Fantasmic! can be too scary for children. However, if your kids make it to the end of Fantasmic!, then the show ends with a boat that is full of Disney characters.”
ANIMAL KINDGOM: “Flame Tree Barbecue offers one of the biggest meals that’s part of the Quick Service Dining Plan. It’s a meal you can likely share, which will save one of your meal credits!”
TICKETS: “If you purchase Park Hopper, keep in mind that Magic Kingdom is often open later than other parks and you might be able to accomplish as much with one full day and some added evenings at Magic Kingdom as you would if you dedicated two full days to Magic Kingdom.”
HOTELS: “If you have a refillable mug from your Disney resort, you can refill it in any Disney resort.”
DINING: “If you aren’t using a dining plan, you can usually order off the children’s menu regardless of your age. This is especially true in quick service restaurants. You need to ask your server in table service restaurants.”
GETTING AROUND WHILE THERE: “Fort Wilderness Resort is massive. If you are visiting there from another resort, know that it has its own bus system and it might take you awhile to get to your destination within the resort after you arrive.”
ATTRACTIONS THAT MIGHT BE TOO SCARY: “Pirates of the Caribbean – this ride is fairly dark, you ride through a storm, and you ride through a ship battle scene”
GOOD PLACES TO TAKE A REST OR NAP: “Magic Kingdom – The Hall of Presidents”
