To-Do Lists for Walt Disney World



By Dave Shute

MORE ON GETTING EVERYTHING DONE BEFORE YOUR TRIP TO WALT DISNEY WORLD

This page brings together to one place links to Walt Disney World To-Do Lists and related material on this site. It’s part of a series on navigating this site.

Each of this site’s Disney World Itineraries has its own To-Do List. (For which itineraries are recommended for which weeks, see this.)

If you aren’t using one of this site’s itineraries, but rather are building your own itinerary, these To-Do Lists can serve as a model for you to create your own.

Note that a good travel agent, such as this site’s partner Destinations in Florida, can do almost all of this work for you, for free.

Outstanding site, been a few times and the wife and I will be using it to plan for October 2012.

Do you recommend paying extra for the park hopper and water park options?

4 Dave { 04.28.12 at 7:27 am }

Carrie, nope to both! You can almost always manage around the hopper, and most first time visitors don’t use enuf of the water parks etc to pay for the extra cost, as the core theme parks are so compelling themselves…

Carrie, glad to help! If you are renting a car anyway, Allegiant can be a real money saver, and the Sanford airport is much easier to handle than MCO…but if you aren’t, Sanford can be a hike…

Well, we can book a shuttle for $150 (round trip) so that is worth it to fly cheaper GF-Orlando. No stops and cheap tickets :) We are booking TONIGHT-eeeekkkkkk!

Yay!!

We are flying to Orlando and staying for a week at the Animal Kingdom Hotel with two small children (4 and 2). Bearing in mind how far the hotel is from Magic Kingdom and the age of our children, would we be better off hiring a car rather than relying on the Disney transport system?

Hi Chris! Actually, no. The Magic Kingdom is the only park where a car is slower than the WDW buses. This is because while buses drop you off right in front, the car park is far away, and once you’ve arrived at it, you need to take either a monorail or a ferry to get to MK. AT the other three parks, a car beats the buses, because there’s not the extra (ferry/monorail) trip…

This question is actually for Carrie from above, although I don’t know how to contact you, or Dave maybe you know too. Where do you get a shuttle from Sanford to a WDW hotel? Or how else could you get there/back without renting a car, since for the rest of the time we plan to take advantage of the WDW transportation?

Stacey, search for “transportation from Sanford airport to disney”: and you’ll find lots of options.
