1. Figure out which day you want to do each park
If you plan nothing else, at least decide which day you’d like to do each park. Because Disney has introduced tiered ticket pricing, certain days will either cost more or less to enter the park. However, it’s a good idea to decide your park days ahead of time so you can plan certain things like fastpasses and dining if you want.
I’m not a hardcore planner like some Disney lovers, but I definitely like to have a general idea of what I’m doing each day so I can plan fastpasses, where I want to eat and even my outfits! These are just a few things you can plan ahead of time, but you still have room for spontaneity.
