Disney World is a vacation to experience over and over again. Come back to ride the classic attractions and try new ones. Walk down Main St USA and take in the sights and sounds. No matter what keeps you coming back, here are 10 Family Traditions To Start At Disney World!
Visit Disney Springs on Arrival Day. Why Disney Springs? It is free to enter, making it a perfect arrival day activity and saving on a full day park ticket. Disney Springs is a destination for entertainment, shopping and dining. Guests can go bowling, see a movie, listen to live music and much more. Consider some shopping with these 15 Must Visit Disney Springs shops. Or, a quick bite to eat with these 5 Favorite Quick Service Restaurants.
Rope Drop Magic Kingdom on your first full day. There is something special about turning the corner down Main St USA and seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time during your trip. This very reason is why so many guests keep the tradition of visiting Magic Kingdom as their first park. Plus, make Rope Drop for less crowds.
Take a family photo in same spot each year. Disney World is no stranger to fun photo opportunities. Consider taking a family photo in the same location each time you visit. It will be fun to see how much the kids grow over the years. Pictured above find this Mickey Ear with Mickey Mouse statue photo op at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Get a Silhouette Photo done. Silhouette Photos are a timeless souvenir and fun to collect over the years. Guests can find Silhouette portraits done in Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs.
Purchase a new pair of Ears. Disney World knows how to make guests shop, there is just so much awesome Disney merchandise available. Out of all the merchandise sold, Mickey or Minnie Ears are my favorite! I love getting a new pair each trip.
Stay at a different Disney World Resort each trip. This tradition you will have to keep in mind when booking your hotel. Consider staying at a different Disney World Resort each trip! Each Disney World Resort has its own unique theming and Disney magic to discover.
Close a park at least once. Pick one evening, perhaps your last, and stay at the park until closing! There is nothing quite like an almost empty park photo before leaving!
Buy a new Pandora Charm. A popular collectible item are Pandora charms. Visit the Pandora shop in Disney Springs for Disney park exclusives to add to your collection!
Try a NEW Restaurant on each trip. Another thing Disney does really well, is food! There is a variety of choices for all tastes. Guests can meet & greet with Characters with Character dining, try various Quick service restaurants, sit-down restaurants and snack locations. In addition to returning to your favorites, add a new eatery to try to each trip!
Purchase a personalized Christmas Ornament. Guests can shop Christmas ornaments all year long at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom or Days of Christmas at Disney Springs. Listen to Christmas music while you shop for the perfect ornament to bring home – and have personalized for FREE. I love pulling out all the ornaments form over the years each Christmas season.
