  • Great place for fun, but definitely get the VIP tour if you can. You get access to places faster and privately. You will hear the inside scoop behind the scenes. Also, pick a hotel close to the park we stayed at the Contemporary, but looking forward to trying another hotel on property on the rail as well. Packed for May, better to visit during the Christmas holidays to get you into the spirit. If you have children Christmas (December) is a great time.
  • Disney is truly a magical place. Have been going to Disney for 20 years. And even though not much has changed, it always feels like its a brand new place every time. And I always feel like a little kid again. I highly recommend going to Disney. Wait until your youngest child is at least 6 so that they would always remember the first time they ever went to Disney.
  • Disney is Disney. Is more than just a park. Is a place of connection where kids and adults alike share their excitement and happiness. Is truly a place where dreams come true. With that in mind, you can always expect the parks to be crowded, expect at least a minimum of 20 minutes of lines per attraction, sometimes is just five minutes, and sometimes it can be 3 hours, so keep that in mind. The food is pricey, therefore if possible try to bring your own snacks. There are water fountains around the park thus being hydrated is easy. But if you come to Orlando, is definitely a must go.
  • Love this place and try to come here several times a year. It's very busy at times so it's best to research the best times of the year to come here. This year we decided to come for the Christmas Holiday Season which it's been a whole since we did it and even though we knew it would be crowded, it is still well worth because the experience is unforgettable. There are always great show here with many special/celebrity guest and there's always opportunities to meet new people, here and abroad. You won't be disappointed in what Disney has to offer.
  • Happiest place on earth! Beautiful place to visits especially for Christmas‚̧ A lots of places to go rides, meet and greet with the your favorite princess. Live shows are awesome. Fun for ALL AGES! I highly recommended to get the PACKAGE DEAL Disney with Dining plan. If you are from other States it is good to get the YELLOW LUGGAGE TAG before because they had staff at the airport to pick up your luggage and bring it to your resort/hotel room. And I like the Disney Magical Express Shuttle service.
