The most busiest time of the year is here and if you have planned a trip to Walt Disney World during the holiday season you are in for a treat. The parks look beautiful with all the decorations and lights, there are extra holiday enhancements all around, but with it comes tens of thousands of people wanting to do the same.
Fear not, you can still have a fun time with these suggestions, the first one is obviously to book your 3 fast passes in advance that way you are guaranteed to experience 3 attractions or shows with short waits. Rope drop if possible and while in the park visit these sections and attractions that are sure to have a short wait, if any at all:
Ton Sawyer Island is a raft ride away from the mainland and offers kids and adults a fun time while exploring caves, visiting the fort or bouncing on the barrel bridge. Make sure to sit on one of the rocking shares and breathe while you see the Haunted Mansion queue snake all the way into Liberty Square.
Liberty Belle Riverboat is a nice and relaxing way to experience the Rivers of America with fun sites of Frontierland and Liberty Square, the boat departs every 30 minutes and there’s no need to line up for it.
Time for the classics: Country Bears, Tiki Room and Carousel of Progress will have more people these days but not at capacity, enjoy a taste of nostalgia with these 3 timeless attractions.
This is the time to get into the World Showcase countries and really walk around them instead of speeding by them on your way to Frozen Ever After. Make sure to stop for a holiday storyteller that will share their traditions and culture with you.
The Seas with Nemo and Friends is a nice way to cool and slow down. You can enter the building through the side if the ride’s wait time is long and see fish, dolphins, sharks along with a fun play area for kids.
