One of the best things about a family vacation to Disney World is that there is something for everybody! Toddlers, teenagers and grandparents alike can truly enjoy themselves from the moment they step foot on Disney World property. A Multi-Generational Disney World Vacation can be a great way to bring the entire family together, but large multi-generational trips do pose their challenges. The key to a successful Multi-generational Disney World Vacation is to ensure that everyone has a fantastic time. That is ALL in the planning!
Multi-Generational Disney World Vacation
If you are planning a multi-generational Disney World Vacation, simply follow these 6 tips to make sure everyone in your party has the most magical vacation possible!
Focus on Experiences
Sure Disney World has some of the best thrill rides to offer (i.e. Space Mountain, Flight of Passage, Tower of Terror), and while your 16-year-old may live for an experience with the Yeti on Expedition Everest, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. With that, and what sets Disney World apart from other destinations is there are SO many great attractions everyone can enjoy. Parades, stage shows and nighttime spectaculars are excellent examples of experiences that will wow the entire family. Young ones will be overjoyed singing along with their favorite characters and adults will love seeing little ones light up among the magic!
Plan A Couple Of Sit Down Meals
A ton of long sit-down meals may be too much for small children but plan for at least a couple during your Disney World vacation. Disney dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance and there are many great options to choose from! It can serve as a nice break from the hot weather and long lines as well as catching up with grandma on what you favorite part of the trip has been so far!
Don’t Be Afraid To Split Up
You cannot please everyone if you are determined to stay together the entire time, even at Disney World. Let the big kids hit up their favorite Magic Kingdom mountain while the little ones soar through the air on Dumbo. Then, reconvene for a family favorite like It’s a Small World! By taking that pressure off, everyone will enjoy their vacation AND one another.
Purchase Memory Maker
Don’t let those memories pass you by! Disney’s Memory Maker is a great addition to your vacation package and will guarantee you keep your memories safe. Photo-pass photographers are excellent at capturing those special moments and with Memory Maker, everyone can be in the picture instead of your usual designated family photographer missing out on the group shots!
Consider Staying In A Disney Villa
Depending on your budget and the number of people in your party, staying in one of Disney World’s Villa properties would allow everyone to have their own space as well as providing a comfortable communal space to spend time together outside of the parks! They offer some pretty amazing amenities as well.
Slow Down And Enjoy Your Multi-generational Disney World Vacation!
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of Disney World. It’s hard to resist running from attraction to attraction but Disney parks are some of the most immersive when it comes to theming and simply being in them is memorable and an attraction in itself. Take time to stroll with your loved ones around the World Showcase, meander through the shops of Main Street USA or spend an afternoon relaxing at the resort pool. They will provide you possibly with even more memories than your top attraction!
Whether it’s a once in a lifetime trip or you visit every year, planning a multi-generational Disney World vacation can be difficult to navigate. By following the tips above you can help guarantee everyone in your party will have the trip of a lifetime.
