Tips for Visiting Disney at the beginning of 2020.
After the Christmas feast has been long since digested, the gifts have been opened, and visiting family members have returned home, you probably have one question to ask yourself… how can I possibly top the holidays and start the new year off right? Well, if you haven’t considered taking a trip to Orlando, Florida and visiting Disney World, then you’re simply not thinking big enough.
Taking a trip to Disney World in January is a great way to start off 2020 with a bang. It serves as a fantastic opportunity to wind down after the stress and pandemonium that often accompanies the holidays so that you feel refreshed for the year to come. To help you get the most out of it, we’ve outlined eight tips that will make Disney World in January the greatest adventure it could possibly be.
Take the opportunity to Enjoy a Smaller Crowd
Even though this extremely popular theme park is always a bit busy because it’s so awesome and has so many dedicated fans, you’ll typically experience a smaller crowd when heading to Disney World in January. Keep in mind, however, that this isn’t really true during the first week because a lot of people will attend to celebrate New Year’s Day and immediately afterward. Later in the month, you’ll see the break in the number of people.
Dress for Colder Weather for Maximum Comfort
Disney World in January definitely tends to get a bit cold, at least by Florida’s standards. This doesn’t mean that you need to pack a parka or carry some kind of heating packs into the park with you, but be sure that you bring along some warm clothing to make sure you’re prepared. Including a sweater and coat for each person in your party will probably suffice, but also pack some thermals in case the weather gets especially cold.
You May Not Want to Go Swimming at the Hotel
Disney’s resort hotels are all absolutely incredible, and many guests can’t wait to take a dip in their swimming pool to relax after they arrive in Orlando or following a fun-filled day at the park. However, given that the temperature outside will definitely be a bit cold, you may want to sacrifice this particular activity. Yes, the pools will be heated, but the cold air outside could make it slightly unpleasant.
Signing Up for a VIP Tour Will Improve the Trip
By signing up for a Disney World VIP tour, you will be presented with an individualized experience that will help you get the most out of every single moment. Disney VIP tour guides will assist you with saving time in line, making Disney hotel reservations, finding your favorite characters for photo opportunities, locating the tastiest food, keeping your belongings secure, and much more. They will also teach you about the park and answer any questions that you have throughout the day.
Your Chosen Hotel Can Make a Real Difference
When visiting Disney World in January, the theme park is obviously your primary destination where you and your family are planning to have loads of fun. However. it’s important that you don’t discount the advantage of choosing a great Disney resort hotel. These hotels can feature anything from themed rooms and lavish breakfasts to water slides and character meet-and-greets. If you choose correctly, you’ll be sharing your hotel experience with your friends on social media, too.
Bring the Kids Along for the Marathon Weekend
Whoever said you can’t visit Disney World in January for both fun and to get a little exercise? Certainly not us! If you’re planning to visit Orlando between January 8th and 12th, then you should definitely consider signing up for one of the weekend marathon events. These events include races for both adults and children, such as the Walt Disney World Marathon, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge, and several others. You can partake in one of the long races, a short race, or simply watch the other runners from the sidelines.
Use FastPass+ to Save Time Standing in Line
Standing in line is often a fact of life that you simply can’t escape from. The good news is that Disney World has helped to take the burden off of this time-consuming activity with the use of the Disney FastPass+ program. With this system, you can choose immediate access to three separate rides before you arrive. Then, once you’ve used those three up during your visit, you can get additional passes one at a time throughout the day until no more passes are available.
