I'm a newbie when it comes to the whole Disney experience, but I'm a fast learner. I took notes on our first family Disney trip and came up with these Disney Hacks that will make your life a lot easier on your next trip to the Mouse's house.




Top 12 Practical Disney Hacks


1. Get coffee inside the parks. They are contracted with Joffrey's Coffee and it's much better than the coffee at the resorts or hotels. Gives you a nice perk in the parks.

2. The Magic Kingdom is a dry park - no alcohol. Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios are good to go with beer in the park.

3. Dole Whip. A nice fruity soft serve with or without rum. Try it with rum.

4. Get the Disney Meal Plan, if you can. You will save a TON of money.

5. Take your own water in the park. They allow water bottles. You will save a ton of money.

6. If you are on a ride, and the ride breaks down, you get a free fast pass.

7. Try to stay at a Disney hotel or resort. The perks, convenience and time saved is worth any extra cost.

8. Beers and Ears App is a must for drinking in the parks.

9. Download the My Disney Experience App. Everything you need will be right there on your phone.

10. Make plans to see the fireworks in each park. Worth the wait.

11. Go in late January / early February when we did. It's still crowded, but the least crowded you'll find. The weather is A LOT cooler, too. I didn't break a sweat the whole time!

12. Carry your things in a light, small backpack when you are in the parks. Life saver.
