What to See and Do at Disney World?

We have just about a month before we head to Disney World for 4 days/5 nights. We are overwhelmed with options on what to do. It will just be my wife and myself. The last time we went was in 1990.

We are not interested in seeing shows as much as seeing everything we can in four days. Being we have a small dog in our motorhome we want to go back and forth to check on her which will most likely be for lunch. Hopefully we can work up a schedule of some type to keep from bouncing around all over the place.

What are some must see things do y'all suggest?

If you have hooper passes do one park in the AM and a different in the PM. Get up early, take advantage of Magic Hours. Reflect on the details that have gone in to making this a tremendous experience.

You mentioned motorhome so hopefully this means Fort Wilderness. Take a look at Forums - Fort Fiends for some ideas. When you are staying in a Disney Hotel (Includes Fort Wilderness Campground) each day there is a park that has earlier or later hours just for guests staying on property. These are called Magic Hours. I am up there next weekend for about the fifteenth time this year.

With 4 days you will never do everything. Just start early everyday. Plan on an hour each way to and from each park.

We will most likely skip the Animal park. The Food and Wine festival will still be going on while we are there. Plus the Christmas stuff will be starting up while we are there.

Early admission hours / extended hours at certain parks on certain days for resort guest (those on site).

Dis Boards are a great resource. I encourage those who ask us for advise to invest in the book by Steve Burnbaum.

If you have a chance pick up the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, great book for telling it like it is, the book need not have the approval of 'the mouse' for publication! After 36 years in the travel business and my agency being one of of Disney's preferred partners....it was the book I gave away with Disney bookings. Decide what you want to do and see in advance, otherwise you will be so overwhelmed that you will waste time figuring it all out. What are your interests?

I love the Animal Kingdom and Epcot. We stay at the Yacht or Beach Club when we are in a hotel, great location and restaurants. If at Ft. Wilderness we use the car, faster, more convenient and there is no charge for parking for guests. If we are going to Epcot for the night shows we drive to the Beach Club, park the car, have lunch or dinner at the Yachtsman or Cape May Buffet, walk to the back entrance of Epcot and enjoy! After Illuminations we walk out the back exit, go to the car and are back at the campsite before we would have boarded a bus for the ride home.

We go a few times every year, specifically to Food & Wine Festival and the Flower and Garden show, both in Epcot. IF you like Food, and Wine (or any other alcohol), go to the Festival. It's a lot of fun, but you can spend a bit of money if you sample a lot of the offerings. My wife and I prefer to get there before 11:00 am when the World Showcase Opens. The rest of the park usually opens at 9:00. It's less crowded earlier in the day and the people aren't as intoxicated as they are by 7:00 pm. Of course, it is cooler at night, but more crowded. It takes us two days to go around because we couldn't walk straight if we hit all 30 kiosks in one day.

We usually plan on getting to whatever park we're going to earlier in the day and heading back to the room in the late afternoon to rest a bit and get ready for going back out in the evening. We normally make dinner reservations in one of the parks, or Disney Springs (as it is now called), for the nights when we did not attend Food and Wine. We'll just do food court or something similar because we've already eaten and drank "around the world" during the day.

As others have said, you won't run out of things to do over the 4 days. You will do a lot of walking (unless you're scootering around). You're going at a good time of the year. We'll be going in a few weeks ourselves. Pace yourself and enjoy!
