Your Ultimate Disney Bucket List for Spring Break
Be honest: who is more excited about your spring break trip to Walt Disney World—you, your partner or the kids? As the days on the calendar begin to count down and you arrive that much closer to setting an ‘out of office, you should allow yourself a bit of daydreaming. While you’ll definitely want to ride every last ride, attend all of the shows and eat your way through the most magical place on the planet, there are a few special experiences that will give your trip a major ‘wow’ factor.
From the opportunity to share a meal with a beloved character to being the very first family to walk through the gates of Magic Kingdom, consider this your one-and-only, ultimate, you-can-do-it, guide to the very best spring break at Disney… ever:
Dine with the characters.
Is your family more into princesses—or creatures? Star Wars or lovable, cuddly sidekicks? No matter what type of Disney film is your go-to for Saturday-night popcorn nights, when you visit Orlando, our specialized agent can set up a one-of-a-kind experience. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, your kid’s jaws will drop to the ground when they see Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Pooh Bear and countless others arrive at their meal. Depending on your budget, you can choose more intimate, private experiences or larger feasts with other families. No matter which route you choose—it’s a definite must-do.
Get goofy with your ride photos.
And no, we don’t mean Goofy himself (unless you snag him for a selfie, of course). With the Disney PhotoPass, you will enjoy browsing through the many images professional photographers capture of you throughout your stay at the park. But while you might not be able to match their top-notch skills, consider it a family challenge to create some interesting—and hilarious—photos as you soar through the rides. On Splash Mountain, Space Mountain and other thrillers, come up with your game plan for the pose you’ll hold when the flash goes off. You might need a few takes, but hey, that’s the point, right?
Attend a Disney dinner show.
Truth be told, you’ll probably need a few down nights at your Disney Resort hotel room during your week-long adventure through Disney World. But for when you and your number ones want to experience the splendor and creativity of Disney while filling your tummies, have your Disney agent book a dinner show. Especially for the springtime, Moana’s Spirit of Aloha is a recommended favorite where you can watch the talented Polynesian dancers do their thing. With more food than you could possibly eat—and alcoholic drinks included!—it might be one of your favorite evenings of all.
Get a makeover.
For a fun twist on spring cleaning, ask your Disney travel agent to make a family makeover appointment at the infamous Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Here, your gals will be mesmerized as they’re transformed into princesses – complete with top buns, jewelry and more. As for the little guys? They can become pirates, ready to tackle the opposition, with eye masks, hats and all of the must-have accessories.
Witness ‘Kiss Goodnight’ at Magic Kingdom.
Have you ventured to Walt Disney World before, but haven’t heard of ‘Kiss Goodnight’? Even for megafans, this late-late-late finale that happens post-fireworks is often overlooked or missed. Without ruining it completely for your family, just take this advice: stay put! As the crowds trickle out and the grounds clear out, a special show will happen at Cinderella Castle, right before gates are locked for the evening.
Try to be the ‘family of the day’.
The very first show of the day is when Disney World starts welcoming guests into this spectacular land. Beginning with a steam train packed with characters and continuing with a musical show, the idea is get visitors hyped for the day of fun ahead. While there are no guarantees and Disney doesn’t offer much in terms of the who, why and how—being the ‘family of the day’ means you’re the very first group to enter the park. With this comes plenty of doting and surprises, making for a truly special start to your vacation. To give this your best shot, you should arrive super early, come dressed to impress and interact with the characters, giving them the signal you’re ready for action!
