  • All four parks had their own unique style. It was a bit overwhelming to start with but by the end of our visit we were pleased with just how much we'd been able to see and do. Magic Kingdom - This was...  more »

  • Over crowded people are treated like cattle. Not enough safety or security. Misters would be nice. Not enough customer service on phones have to wait hours at times.  more »

  • Been 3 times and had a great unforgettable experience each time! Last time we went we had a group of 19 people and we all loved every moment! I would highly recommend staying on resort because it is much easier to access everything and it takes away from the hustle and bustle of beating the lines to get into the park in the morning! It is a great place for families of all sizes no matter what number or age they may be! I have tons of photos but unfortunately most aren't on the device I'm posting this with! Have fun in Disney World!
  • I've been to Disney many times with my family and we've always had a great time. So I decided to go with a few friends of mine. We had so much fun and all of the cast members are so nice. We talked to one member at the Dumbo shop and he was so nice and since we talked for so long he gave us a free snack. The park is very clean and the staff is so helpful. We had a hard time with our fast passes but they were there to help us
  • We loved Disney world resort it had so many more activities since my last visit and it was great for my toddlers twins they had blast so many good activities and shows that they enjoyed so much. Don't listen to other travelers each Disney parks has great rides and shows for all ages my 2 year old twins loved each park just allow a rest day in between so they can rest. The fast pass and the new photo pass options are great, also get a magic band this makes everything so much easier no papers and everything can be done from the application as everything is all sync great idea from Disney.
  • I've found that most of the 1 star reviews are from older people who took their grand kids on days like Good Friday, Christmas and other holidays, they then complain about waiting long times and it being crowded. Every Disney experience I've had had been absolutely amazing, It always lives up to my expectations. I always enjoy the rides and even the lines sometimes! Most rides have things to look at or do while you wait and they can be quite entertaining. I've found that you should never go on Weekends or holidays unless you have a pass to get back into the parks and are staying at a resort, On weekends or holidays you should go in the morning leave about mid-day then come back at night. Granted you do not want to go before the fireworks at night, It will be the most difficult to get through any crowd as most will be moving in opposite direction. While saying this try to get on rides that normally have long wait times while their are big events going on, like the parade or fireworks (Only go during fireworks if you're already there). While buying and eating ends up being a lot of the experience, NORMALLY the foods go with the area you are in. And while the prices are high and people complain about that they're actually reasonable for how much goes into a place like Disney, It costs money to pay the workers, to make outfits for new workers, to buy food, to repair rides and buildings, to create new rides, to buy more merchandise, it takes money to feed the animals, it costs money to pay for people who have injuries and some of the money goes to other parts of Disney. The prices are reasonable because of ALL THESE FACTORS, always go with more cash then you think you'll need. Overall It is a great experience for everyone adult or child, old or young. I have two more trips planned for this Saturday and the Friday and weekend of next week. I hope all your trips to Disney are magical. Protip: TRY to go on weekdays while kids are in school, preferably Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Walt Disney World is always an amazing experience. With four main parks, a couple of which would take you two days to do everything, there is plenty to keep you busy through an entire week of visits. There's a lot of walking to be done and it is best to paste yourself through the trip, perhaps only going every other day. Transportation is great throughout the kingdom and you can get anywhere from anywhere by taking buses or monorail - it just takes time. If you can afford parking, it is best to drive to the lot closest to the area you want to visit. Be prepared to spend lots on food and gifts. The fast pass system is great and the use of the app to book them while checking on the wait times of various rides is fantastic. The fact that it is limited to just three per day is well off-set by the fact that they are included in your regular pass and you don't have to pay extra like you do at Universal. Awesome place for a magical getaway!
