We're planning a trip Dec 17, during what I understand is the most crowded week of the year at wdw (23 Dec- 2 Jan). We (myself, hubby, and 2 boys, 11 and 10) are coming from Australia, have never done anything Disney (cause we just don't have it here) and none of us have ever even left the country. Needless to say, it's a bit daunting!
I've read the guide, I'm sorting out my rough, skeleton plan for days/parks etc to start figuring out what restaurants to book next year. Yes, it's a bit early. I take a long time to plan things, think them through and then change my mind ten times before coming back to my original plan. Mostly. We're planning on having 3-4 hour nap breaks in the middle of the day and then park hop for the evening. There are probably 3 days that we wont have breaks and just have an earlier night.
What are you tips for someone coming for their one and only visit ever?
Apart from the obvious rides, parades and shows, what are your favourite and must-see/do things?
My kids are into quirky bits like the umbrella in Hollywood studios, so anything like that would be handy to know. They don't seem to be into the hidden mickeys... but we'll see if that holds when we arrive
thanks in advance!
