After spending a few thousand dollars on airfare, your resort, theme park tickets and a dining plan the next thing you need to worry about is how to make sure you are completely miserable on your Walt Disney World vacation. Some vacationers have it figured out and become miserable as soon as they land at the airport, while others only figure it out after their first full day in one of the parks. Well we are here to help! No more need for you to learn how to be miserable on your own, we are going to give you the five quickest ways to ensure your magical vacation isn’t well, magical.
If you are planning on using Disney’s Magical Express, then be sure to NOT make your reservation. I mean they should just know you are coming and which bags are yours. If you did make the mistake of arranging your pickup prior to your arrival at Orlando International Airport, well I am sorry, you will have to wait a little longer to be miserable.
Resort Check In
This is where you get to experience the first of many long lines, a true kick start and appetizer to becoming miserable at WDW. If you used the online check in prior to your arrival, with 60 days before you arrive to do this, it really does take away from that first line waiting experience. I mean who wants to go to theme parks and not wait in line? (Walt Disney World Online Check In)
This is absolutely paramount to ensuring that your entire party is miserable on their “Magical” Walt Disney World vacation. Everyone needs to be have a FULL backpack, filled with water bottles, change of clothes, snacks, extra socks, sunscreen, first aid kits and medications. Because you don’t want to be “that” family who goes to first aid for FREE medical treatment if needed, or who doesn’t take advantage of the FREE full size cups of ice water provided to all guests of the WDW theme parks. Only those families who have well planned itineraries don’t carry extra personal belongings and have only one bag (if any at all) with them.
If you would like to be as miserable as possible, as soon as possible, then I can pretty much guarantee you that you can reach optimum misery by heading to the parks in the 9 or 10 am hours and staying all day in the Florida heat and humidity. Don’t follow the lead of the families who want that “Magical” experience when they go to their resort during the 3pm to 5pm time period, and then take advantage of the cooler evening and night weather during Extra Magical Hours. Really, who likes a show off? Who do these people think they are heading to the park at rope drop, enjoying the cooler times of the day and then leaving for the afternoon?
Do It ALL
No one likes a quitter, and since it has been proven that it would take more than 365 days of visits to do EVERYTHING that Walt Disney World has to offer, there is absolutely NO reason why you can’t try to do it all in your 5 to 7 days here. Dragging everyone across the parks to get in every single ride, show and experience in one week is a fantastic plan to help you reach a level of misery that you probably haven’t ever experienced. These families that you see leisurely strolling through the shops and sitting enjoying an ice cream, well they are doing it all wrong! They are missing so much misery! How dare they go home full of happy memories when they didn’t ride every ride? What do they know anyway?
We sure hope this helped you plan the most miserable Walt Disney World vacation experience you can have. If we have forgotten anything, please let us know.
