Walt Disney World Orlando Tips for First Timers!

This is my follow on post from my 7 day itinerary and in this post I’m going to share all my tips for first timers visiting WDW Orlando.

We went in January, the end to be precise. Christmas is over and we went after MLK weekend so the crowds were minimal and the weather was amazing. We were able to still wear summerish clothes and walk around the parks without sweating!

Tip 2: PACK LUNCHES

If you go to the park you’re going to be there for pretty much the entire day so I would definitely recommend bringing a backpack with some snacks and bottles of water in them this will save a ton of money.
