The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is perhaps the most incredibly wonderful places on the planet. It’s one of the few places you can fly with Peter Pan, socialize with grim grinning ghosts, and see Mickey Mouse and all his friends outside of a movie screen. As fantastic as a trip to this magical place can be, it can also be incredibly easy to drain the fun right out of it. Avoidable mistakes and poor choices by guests can certainly take the magic right out of The Magic Kingdom. Though these tips are directed at the most magical place on earth, they can always be applied to any Disney Park. Here are ten sure-fire ways to make an otherwise magical trip totally miserable.
10. Missing Your Early StartJust to be clear, I’m not saying you have to be the very first group to the park, but it does help to be early. You don’t have to be there for the rope drop or opening ceremony, although they are both crimes to miss, it will tremendously help your trip if you are at the parks at an early hour. If you wait too long to make your arrival, you face the risk of long lines, wait times, and bigger crowds to fight through. If you want to do your best to avoid crowds and lines, this writer recommends arriving no later than 8:00 or 8:30 in the morning. Like I always say, early birds meet the mouse. So if you want to avoid schlepping through the hoard and trying to muck through your late start, try to arrive early.
9. ComplainingWalt Disney World is one of the most wonderfully magical places on earth, but because of its size, location, and popularity, there will be a few inconveniences. Yes it’s going to be hot, yes there will be crowds, and yes you will have to wait for certain things. Despite its whimsical reputation, the Disney Parks are still theme parks. They are going to have some of the same problems many theme parks have, even a place as wonderful as The Magic Kingdom. While it is true that Disney handles most problems better than other parks, sometimes they still occur. The best thing to do is simply be patient and enjoy the atmosphere the Disney Imagineers and artists have worked so hard to create. A temporary inconvenience should never be enough to ruin your magic.
