Disney Tips and Tricks from Stacy Crowley, Travel Sales Manager and Disney Enthusiast!
Stacy is an avid Walt Disney World visitor and even worked at the park! Here she explains the differences in each of the four uniquely themed parks.
Disney’s Magic Kingdom:
Magic Kingdom® is where fairytale dreams come true for children of all ages. Home to classic attractions, over the top firework displays, and parades of beloved Disney Characters across six whimsical lands, the Magic Kingdom is the park that started it all. See fantasy become a reality as you explore Adventureland®, Frontierland®, Liberty Square and Fantasyland® Tomorrowland® and Main Street, U.S.A.® Areas. Zoom through space, become a swashbuckling pirate and watch fireworks light up the sky over Cinderella Castle.
Stacy Says: There are some restaurants throughout Walt Disney World where you can make reservations before the park opening. This allows you to create beautiful memories and photos before the rush of people come into the park!
Discover thrilling attractions, charming international pavilions, and award-winning fireworks. Celebrating the human spirit, Epcot® has two distinct realms: Future World, which features technological innovations, and World Showcase, which is home to 11 countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, the United States, Japan, Morocco, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
Stacy Says: The best time to come to Disney as an adult is during mid-October for the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
Disney’s Hollywood Studios® has all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Step into the action with attractions based on blockbuster movies and top TV shows, and delight in exciting entertainment that puts you center stage. With the enthusiasm of a bustling movie set, this park features eight sections: Hollywood Boulevard, Echo Lake, Sunset Boulevard, Streets of America, Commissary Lane, Pixar Place, Mickey Avenue, and Animation Courtyard.
Come live your very own Star Wars™ story at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Build your droid, create your custom lightsaber and sample the concoctions of the local cantina. Then, gather your crew and take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Find yourself caught in an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance—where the incoming laser fire of a towering AT-AT is matched only by the red crackle of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park:
Encounter exotic animals and exciting adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom®, the largest animal Theme Park in the world. Home to more than 1,700 animals across 250 species, the park reflects Walt Disney’s dedication to conservation and is committed to animal care, education and research. Explore six enthralling lands: Oasis, Discovery Island®, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch®, Asia, DinoLand, U.S.A.® and the NEW Pandora-The World of Avatar.
Stacy Says: The quietest times to visit Disney World are the second week in January and the week after Labor Day.
