but there’s so much to choose from…what should you do first?…
This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using these links. It is no additional cost to you, and I cross my heart I only recommend products and deals that will help you get the most out of your Disney experience.
Here are Your Arrival Day at Disney World Resort Tips:
Check In to Your Resort
Check In is made super easy with the My Disney Experience App!!
Disney allows online check in up to 60 days before your arrival date.
You also have the option to receive a text when your room is ready so you can bypass the front desk all together with your Magic Band.
Your Disney Resort will send you a text, like this one picture here, with your room number and a link to a map of your resort.
We usually drop our luggage off with the bellhop, jump on the bus to Disney Springs, and grab some lunch or shop until we receive our text. It’s very convenient!
>>> If you added the Disney Dining Plan to your Magic Your Way Package then you can pick up your Rapid Fill Refillable Mug at your resort food court free of charge. If you didn’t don’t worry… you can still purchase one for only $15.49 and thanks to Disney’s new Rapid Refill Program you can select the number of days you would like to purchase depending on the length of your stay!
Play Disney Style Mini-Golf
Another magical Benefit of Staying on Disney Property is the 4 free vouchers for Miniature Golf!
Choose from Disney’s Fantasia Gardens or Disney’s Winter Summerland.
Each course features 2 themed 18-hole courses.
Take Off to One of the 4 Amazing Disney Parks
If you get there early enough in the day you can drop off your luggage and head straight to the park of your choice.
Dive right into all the Disney Park fun full-force.
Also don’t forget to check for Extra Magic Hours at the parks. One or more Parks may stay open late a few extra hours exclusively for Disney Resort guests.
Explore Your Resort
With amazing Disney-themed pools, arcades, gift shops, dining and much more, your Disney Resort is jam-packed with everything you need to relax and get your vacation going.
Shopping & Nightlife
Pick up a guide-map at the front desk and hop on the bus to Disney Springs or Boardwalk…or both!!! Shopping, dining, entertainment, nightlife these promenades have it all.
Definitely check out the World of Disney Store at Disney Springs…it’s the Worlds largest Disney Store!!
