15 Quick Tips for Walt Disney World® Vacations

It’s no wonder Galleria Palms Hotel is a leading choice among hotels near Disney World and Orlando!

In addition to providing a clean, comfortable stay and outstanding on-site amenities, we’re experts when it comes to visiting Walt Disney World® Resort. Here are some of our top tips:

1. Spread your park visits out over several days – it’s physically impossible to do everything in one day.

2. Arrive at the park 30 to 45 minutes before their stated opening times, so you can be one of the first inside and in line.

3. Always wear comfortable, well broken-in shoes since you’ll be on your feet for most of the day.

4. Apply sunscreen before you head to the parks, and reapply it in two- to three-hour intervals throughout the day.

5. Check the age and height requirements of rides before you get in line using the measuring stations and information found at the start of the line.

6. A little planning can go a long way when you use Disney’s FASTPASS® Service.

7. Have one adult in your group go on ahead to the next ride to get FASTPASSES, while everyone else waits in line at another ride.

8. If an attraction has two lines, try the one on the left because it may be shorter.

9. Drink plenty of water – not coffee or soda – all day to avoid dehydration.

10. Keep cool by planning to attend indoor shows, eat a late lunch or ride one of the air-conditioned buses from one park to another during the hottest parts of the day (approximately 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.).

11. Carry a lightweight, cheap plastic poncho with you for each family member, in case of occasional afternoon rain showers.

12. Bring at least a few snacks and drinks into the park with you to save money.

13. Take advantage of the special features and events unique to each park, including huge parades, fireworks and holiday festivities during certain parts of the year.

14. Visit one of the many brightly colored tourist shops on the roads leading up to the parks for great deals on souvenirs.

15. Schedule some pool time – or even nap time – back at the hotel in between your Disney vacation activities to keep everyone happy and well rested.
