Packing for a cruise

It is possible to over pack for cruising. The biggest thing to remember to throw in your vacation suitcase is your bathing suit. You will utilize this the most. Take a nice pair of pants and couple of pairs of shorts then you can mix and match your shirts. Ladies – no need to take your entire shoe closet! Wear your flip flops on the ship, pack a pair of dress shoes/sandals and pack a pair of tennis shoes in case your shore excursion requires closed toed shoes.

Take some time to get settled into your Stateroom!

Take some time once you get on your ship to unpack your suitcase. Disney’s staterooms offer plenty of drawers and storage space and you can use your empty suitcase to store dirty clothes. The beds are raised so your suitcases will slide right under!

Avoid the early morning crowds

Most people go left to Tomorrowland or straight towards Fantasyland once they enter the Theme Park, go right and start in Adventureland to avoid some of the crowds and enjoy lower morning waits.

Use Disney Ride Swap so that everyone can ride

If you have little ones who aren’t tall enough to ride certain attractions, ask the Cast Member at that attraction for a rider swap, this will allow one adult to stay back with the small child while the others ride. When the first group is done, the next adult can take up to 3 people back thru the FastPass line to ride so that no one misses out on the fun!

Beat the Heat at Magic Kingdom Park

If you are trying to beat the heat during a summer visit try indoor attractions like Mickey’s Philharmagic, Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor, The Country Bear Jamboree or The Enchanted Tiki Room. They rarely have much of a wait time and are excellent places to cool off.

Take a breather at a Resort Lounge

Many of the Deluxe Resorts at Disney have lounges that serve small bites and have excellent drink menu’s. These locations are great for the adults to relax at after a long day in the parks! One of our favorites is Victoria Falls at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Minimize your wait with FastPass+

Want to maximize your FastPass+ Selections? Try to get them early in the day and close together. You can also get them on the same side of the park to minimize your walking. Your Treadway Travel Company Agent is your best resource in helping you secure these before arrival, but once you have used your initial 3, you can get additional selections throughout the day making those long lines seem like a breeze!
