A Mini Series of Disney World Tips

As I shared here, we gave our kids a trip to Disney World for Christmas this year. They had a slew of clues to figure out, each one leading to a different part of the house and a new clue. The first clue was hidden under one of the dining room chairs.

One clue was even frozen in ice. . .which we thought the kids would defrost with a hair dryer or run under hot water to get to and thus would take a few minutes and in the process tone down the running and noise (aka chaos) a litte, but oh no, the kids just went outside and threw that disc of ice up in the air and the ice shattered and they were onto the next clue.

The last clue was a bunch of letters that the kids had to unscramble. By this point they knew we were going on a trip. A week long trip in January. To a place with no snow. They were crazy excited and in shock when they spelled out this:

We just got back from Disney World last Wed night. And because more than just one or two of you asked for Disney pointers and because more than just one or two of you sent emails letting me know you were headed to Disney soon and wanted to know what was worth it and what was totally not worth it. And where we stayed and if I had any budget tips, I decided to take this week at The Intentional Home and do a mini series of Disney Tips.


Now understand, I am no Disney expert and not even a huge Diseny fan. I have only been to Disney twice. Once 6 years ago right before Jonathan came home from Guatemala. And then again last week. 7 of us went, my kids are 15, 13, 12, 8 and 6. I am just going to share what I learned from my hours of research and from the actual trip itself.

Here is what I am planning. I will be sure to make the below titles clickable once I write these posts. 

Tomorrow: 3 Tips to Make Planning Your Disney Trip Easier
Thurs: 15 Things to Definitely Pack for Disney
Friday: How to Really Make Disney the Most Magical Place on Earth
So if you have any questions you would like to see answered in this mini series, leave a comment or shoot me an email.

  1. Looking forward to this series, Su. We just got back from Disney as well and had a blast. I always like to get others tips on Disney as it's my favorite family vacation spot. Two things I'd love to see answered are: 1. How do you deal with taking your children out of school- especially the older ones. Mine are young, so I can easily catch them up on the missed school work. I'm thinking it will be harder in middle school and high school. 2. How do you recover from Disney or any trip once you get home? I have already done five loads of laundry and am not finished- probably have about four or five more. I haven't done the grocery shopping and am not sure how I am going to be able to get my coupons together, so I stick to my shopping budget.
