Some vacations, like jetting off to an all-inclusive Caribbean resort, don’t require a whole lot of forward planning. Going to Walt Disney World or Disneyland is not one of those vacations. You may think you’re an ol’ Disney pro. You went as a kid, after all, and you’re very familiar with who Mickey Mouse is. But going to Disney requires knowing where you want to eat and what rides you want to go on at what time of day months in advance. Thoroughly research the best places to stay, what kind of ticket package you may need and what rides and restaurants are right for you and your family before you book your Disney trip.
