Planning is necessary! Disneyland is a much more laid-back atmosphere compared to Walt Disney World. At Disneyland, locals and frequent guests often roll up to the parks with hardly anything planned for their day, but at Disney World, it’s quite the opposite. If there are any must-dos for your trip, you should definitely plan in advance!
Expect much more walking. Disney World is way bigger than Disneyland, and you can expect to be walking way more than you would at the West Coast Disney theme parks.
Prepare for crowds and bad weather. You’re basically guaranteed to face major crowds and the occasional storm during your vacation, so pack your patience and a poncho!
Consider staying on property. Walt Disney World offers far more budget-friendly hotel options, and there is a resort that can fit nearly everyone’s budget, whether you want to save money or totally splurge on your trip. Plus, the perks can’t be beat!
