“Welcome home, princess,” they said.
Magic Kingdom is my home away from home. It’s my favorite park because there’s so much to do and something for everyone, I believe. There’s so many great rides, food, and iconic photo spots compared to the other parks. There’s so many “lands,” you have Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Main Street USA and Liberty Square. It all comes together as the Magic Kingdom. It’s essentially the most magical and the best bang for your buck when it comes to the value of the park tickets. There’s always something to explore and see.
If you’ve never been but interested in going, I’d definitely recommend going sometime in your lifetime. What is holding you back? If it’s costs, Disney is more affordable than you think. There’s plenty of ways to cut corners and still have a great time and full Disney experience. If it’s because you have no one to go with, (i.e. schedules don’t align with friends, other friends aren’t Disney fans, etc) fret not because I still think you’d have a great time even if you go it alone. If anything, you might have a better time because hello? Single rider line bypasses all the wait times, haha! There are actually a lot of people who go to the parks by themselves and have an amazing time. But yes, it is nice to be able to share it with someone. My husband is not a big Disney fan but he still goes with me when the stars align and while he doesn’t enjoy it as much as I do, he still has a good time and is a gentleman holding all my bags for me when I ride rides he doesn’t care for, and is patient with me taking all my photos for me.
In this post, I’m going to go over some basics for commonly asked questions I always get when I visit the parks. If there’s anything I don’t touch upon that you’re interested in, feel free to leave me a comment and I’ll provide whatever insight I have on it.
Price-point wise, I’ve discussed this before but I’ll go over it again since it’s a common question I keep getting about my trips to Disney. A lot of people think they can’t afford Disney, but if you plan it just right and go at the right times, it’s definitely affordable, and you can definitely do a whole park in a day. Some people even park hop because they’re able to get so much done, but personally for me, I prefer to do one park a day and enjoy everything I can in it.
Even if you’re on a budget, Disney is definitely still doable. I went all out for my birthday last fall, but this trip was a budget trip since I have to scale back to get my finances in order(I know, why are you even going on vacation then? But I already know I have bad priorities so let’s get that shit out of the way before you idiot MFs wanna call me out. We all have our vices, so don’t start with me if you're “broke af” but still out partying buying $15 drinks in the club).
Disney has hotels for all different budgets. I’ve stayed at one of each of the 3 tiers; value, moderate and deluxe, as well as a few off-site hotels as well. There are pros and cons to each and it all depends on your preference and budget but regardless, any of them are great choices, honestly. When staying onsite at any of the resorts, you have the luxury of free Disney transportation to and from the parks and resorts, Disney Springs, and the airport (the complimentary airport shuttle alone will knock a $60 Uber bill off your tab). Some hotels offsite also provide complimentary transportation to the parks, albeit on a less frequent schedule than Disney would provide so you have to be aware of when to board their buses.Read More
