    Plan out what you want to do. If you want to have a great time, the most important step is to create an itinerary for every day you will be there. Also decide whether you will fly or drive, and what restaurants you will eat at, so that stress doesn't ruin your vacation.

    Plan out for the next day.
    • Wake up around 7:00 am. Head for EPCOT, a spectacular community of the future. Head for the lines of the most popular attractions, such as Soarin', and Test Track. Explore Future World, then when world showcase opens at 11:00, go for a counterclockwise exploration of 11 of the countries of the world. After dinner, scope out a spot to watch the fireworks show: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.
    • The next morning, pack some ice cold, water, because you are heading to Animal Kingdom, the hottest park there. As you enter, you will be dazzled by the animal and plant life that surround you. Head for Expedition Everest, the most popular ride in the park. After you recover, head for Dinoland U.S.A. Ride dinosaur, a ride that will leave you begging for more. By this time, you will be very hot and sweaty. Ride Kali River Rapids, the wettest ride in Disney. Wander around, riding other rides and visiting attractions until the park closes at 6:00 pm.
    • When you wake up the next morning, head for Disney's Hollywood Studios. When the rope drops, head STRAIGHT for Toy Story Mania! I cannot stress that enough. After you get fast passes, head over to tower of terror. After that terrifying experience, go to Rock and Roller Coaster, starring Aerosmith. After that you can pretty much do whatever you want in this park, then go to Fantastic time and leave.

    Have fun! Don't take this too seriously. It is a vacation, so have fun being away from life!


  • Bring lots of water.
  • Remember to get fast-passes for the rides, so that you can bust the long lines later in the day.
  • Go to the more popular attractions first, so that the line isn't as long.
  • It may be a good idea to discuss a meeting area with your friends or family that you can go if get lost during the day. That way if you do get lost both you and your friends/family will know that you will be waiting at the location which you agreed on. It may be a good idea to select a certain landmark where it will be easy to locate.


  • Disney is a BIG place, so don't get lost or lose track of kids.
  • On popular attractions, the lines tend to be overwhelming after you wait too long.
