5. Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel

Don’t just have a Disney experience in the parks. Book your nights in one of the many resorts where you’ll save time by staying closer to the magic, and you’ll have free transportation to get you there. Hotels range from value to deluxe.

4. Extra Magic Hours

This perk allows you to arrive at the parks earlier than the regular posted hours—and you even get to stay later in the evenings. This extra time gives you a chance to knock out more of your must-do list.

3. Walt Disney World vacation package deals  

Planning your trip to Walt Disney World is made much easier when you can do the majority of your purchasing in one place—and getting a deal at the same time is a big plus! Booking your flight, hotel, and park tickets together on saves money and time.

2. Water Park Fun & More Option

Walt Disney World has a wide variety of activities and attractions for everyone in the family. Enjoy golfing or splashing around at the water parks, and make the most of your trip with this add-on.

1. Fastpass+

This hack really helps you save precious time and be organized throughout your Walt Disney World experience. Reserve your favorite Disney attractions online up to 60 days in advance by using the My Disney Experience website or mobile app. You can also change your plans on the go. Less time waiting in line means more time for ice cream!
