My best friend and I will be graduating from high school this May and to celebrate we are going to Walt Disney World! Both of us are common Disneyland goers, and have our own strategies to making the best of a day in resort while avoiding crowds and getting everything awesome done. Yet with our trip approaching, I've begun to worry about making the most of Disney World, and while it seems similar it also seems totally upscale and kind of scary.
We plan to leave June 4th and come back June 12th, spending seven days in the parks. So far we feel it'd be better to dedicate each day to one park rather than hopping around. Our tickets for the travel as well as the parks is already bought and confirmed, so they are good. At this point we have yet to purchase a hotel, but we are pretty certain on staying in the Disney World Resort Hotels, probably Pop Century. We also are planning on spending most our time in the parks, so no need to worry about car rental or Orlando tourism sites.
Although I have been to Disneyland hundreds of times, know plenty about its history and secrets, and have good knowledge of weaving through the park, I know almost nothing about Walt Disney World. Money isn't really an issue since we've been saving up for over a year, so what are the must dos, the lesser known should dos, and etc? What is good to bring into the park? Being a native of California, I've never witnessed extreme heart or humidity, although my friend has lived in Texas before. She says lite and "flowy" attire is best; is there any other things I should do to prepare? What are the big differences between the two resorts?
Essentially, what is your usually game plan for getting through the park, and what tips can you offer?
Thank you in advance for your help! I'm so excited and can't wait!
