We were watching a Touring Plans video on Youtube the other night, when they said something very casually. I thought I heard wrong, so I rewound.
The person giving the tour, said that the average person visiting Disney World does 10 attractions a day, basically, 1 an hour.
Could that be true?
I did some googling, and couldn't find any answers, but when you think about it, if you spend 40 minutes in a standby line, 5 minutes loading into a ride, then riding it, then 10 minutes to walk to your next ride, that isn't too far off, and if you do standby for Peter Pan's Flight, or Slinky Dog or something, you are looking at a much longer wait. Maybe you'll only do 6 rides, if you want to eat lunch.
I don't know about you guys, but I think that number sucks. I don't save up for so long, and make such a long drive just to do 6 attractions in a day. That's why I think plans are so important!
If you research a little ahead of time, and make a list of what you want to do, you'll have more fun, and you'll get more than 10 attractions done in a day!
Not sure how many you can do? You can click HERE for all of my FREE touring plans, and you'll be surprised just how much you can fit in the first half of the day.
Do you remember the adorable Mickey goldfish crackers that appeared to help celebrate Mickey's 90th? They are back, with with an on the go, portable, or giftable size! I spotted (and promptly bought) these at Target. There are 24 mini bags, and these would be cute to send in for snacktime or as valentines, but I am actually going to save them in case I can't get more, for our upcoming Disney trip! Goldfish were already on the list,and I just know as yummy as these will taste, they will have a bit of extra magic while eaten in the Magic Kingdom!
If you are looking for them yourself, check in the section where they have the Valentine treats. These were $6.99.
Planning to get yourself some? I don't blame you! Going to Disney soon? Taking your own snacks to Disney is an awesome way to save a bundle, did you know that? They are really generous with how much food you can bring in. Click here, to read all about it!
We were thrilled to hear the news that some friends of ours are taking their kids to Disney in a few months! 3 of the 4 children have never been, and one is just a tiny man, he won't even be a year when he goes. When I mentioned that he would enjoy so many of the rides, the surprise they had at being told he could go on so many got me thinking.
So many times I have seem families talk about planning a trip and leaving behind their babies, because there wouldn't be anything that they could do. Personally, I think a shorter list would be what the under 3 set CAN'T do, because when you read this list, you might be as blown away as I was once I started looking around online, and in my favorite book, the Unofficial Guide to Disney World.
Disney really is a family place, and most anywhere you want to go, your kids can go too. Babies and toddles really do love these rides, I have seen it with my own kids, and others. If you are on the fence about taking your littles, take a look at all they CAN do! Neither of you will be missing out on the Disney fun if you take them along!
It's totally possible I missed a few, but if nothing else, consider this a good starting point!
Remember also, any show or character meet and greet will also not have a height restriction!

So what do you think? Are there more options than you thought? I'd say it's time to start planning what to go on first!!
Have you ever done the fun Pirate's Adventure in Adventureland? It's a fun scavenger hunt sort of a thing to help Jack Sparrow. You get your map to keep, AND, if you do the hunt twice, you, and anyone else in your party get a bonus Fast Pass for Pirates of the Caribbean! Depending on what time of year you go, you might, or might not save time over waiting in the standby line, but I promise you the standby line is not nearly so fun!
There are several adventures to go on...it's so much fun! Good luck! And watch out for the blow darts. They nearly got us last time.
