Happiest place in on Earth? Of course. Hectic, crowded and hot? Yes, VERY true. So is it worth the trip for adults? Absolutely! Disney World doesn’t just have to be for the little ones, it can be perfect for proposals, anniversaries (the reason I went), birthdays, etc. Today I’ve put together a little Disney World Survival Guide for Adults to help make your trip to Disney magical, enjoy reading!
BEAT THE HEAT
Take it from me the Florida heat is NOT something to mess with. Even I, a Florida native, was beaten (badly I might add) by the intense heat. Unfortunately I even had to cut the day short because I had severely underestimated the Florida heat that day. If I could go back and do the day over I would definitely take my own advice I’m about to share, so I hope you do too!
Check the weather before hand.
If its not one thing, its another. By that I mean if its not the heat ready to take you down, its the rain. Make sure you are always prepared for whatever weather is going to come your way. All you need to do is download a weather app.
You should be drinking plenty of water the day leading up to your trip to Disney, that way you are already hydrated. Also, buying a ton of water bottles will not only be expensive, but annoying to carry around. I suggest you buy one bottle per person and keep filling up at water fountains around the park. If you ever feel ill or lightheaded from too much heat do not hesitate to stop at any of the street vendors. The staff can provide you with free water cups and damp towels to help cool down. All you have to do is ask, and they’ll be there to help!
Keep yourself protected.
I’ve got two words for you… sun screen. Sun screen needs to be your best friend throughout the entire day, otherwise you’ll most likely turn into a tomato. And who would want that to happen?
Please, please, please do not be that one person who comes to Disney in jeans and a long sleeve shirt! You will regret it I promise… So just think light t-shirts, tanks, shorts. Personally I wore a jean skirt but I #diditforthegram, so I don’t actually recommend jean skirts! If you want me to go more in depth with Disney wardrobe let me know in the comments. I’ll make a separate post on Disney fashion if you want. 🙂
BRING ON THE SWEETS
Today is definitely not the day to worry about cavities! Disney is home to some of the sweetest treats around, which in my opinion is why Disney is the happiest place on Earth. Here are a few must eat treats:
Main Street Confectionary
- Mickey Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Mickey Specialty Caramel Apple (my personal favorite)
- Milk Chocolate S’more Square
- Mickey Rice Crispy Treats
- and so much more yumminess
If your mouth isn’t drooling right now then there’s something very wrong…
RIDES YOU CAN’T MISS
Like I mentioned before I wore a jean skirt to the park, which wasn’t the smartest decision but hey I didn’t let that stop me from getting on rides! Jean skirt and all I never miss these rides and you shouldn’t either! 🙂
- Space Mountain
- Astro Orbiter
- Splash Mountain
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant
- Its a Small World
- Mad Tea Party
- Mickey’s PhilharMagic ***(if you really want to feel the magic of Disney, this is a must!)
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Trail
ORLANDO AREA RESTAURANTS
Located on Disney’s Board walk is the unique AbracadaBar lounge. This bar has colorful and tasty cocktails that all contain one special ingredient– a splash of magic. Curious? Here’s the Menu.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Dine with the Disney Princesses inside of the Cinderella Castle. Make sure you have a reservation beforehand (weeks or months ahead to be safe) because they will not take walk ins.
