1 – Pick The Right Disney Resort

The first tip in having the best stay ever while visiting Walt Disney World is choosing the right Disney Resort. With over twenty options to choose from, this decision might seem daunting, but can be made easier by narrowing down the Disney Resorts into different price categories. The Disney Resorts can be divided as Deluxe which are the most expensive, Value which offer the best deals, and Moderate which fall somewhere in between. Guests who first figure out their budget for their Walt Disney World vacation can then narrow down their Disney Resort choice to one price category which only features several options instead of an overwhelming amount. Guests can then have an easier time of choosing the right Disney Resort for them based on several options.

2 – Know What Room You Want

After guests decide which Disney Resort is the right one for them, they should start researching all about that option and learn as much as there is to know. This will help them be more prepared once on vacation. One of the first things to research and decide on is where a guest wants to stay within the Disney Resort. Guests who consider the map of their chosen Disney Resort can decide whether they would rather request a specific type of room to provide certain views or locations or make a special request for a particular building or area of the Disney Resort.
