I’m going to be honest, I was pretty hesitant adding this to the list. But believe it or not, some people actually think that you can drink at 16 (or 14 and 18) if you’re in Germany, because that’s how it is in the real Germany . Trust me, a guy behind me in the line at Sommerfest asked the cashier that. It was pretty awkward.
Yes I know, it’s common sense but trust me, they’ll typically ask for your ID no matter how old you look. I’m not the youngest looking dude, but I still get carded.
You probably paid a lot of money for your nice Disney hotel room but haven’t really been able to enjoy all the amenities it has to offer, especially if you’re on a time crunch. That’s why I recommend that if you have some spare time, that you plan a picnic at your resort with your party. Some resorts have great spots for picnics like the beaches Disney’s Beach Club, Polynesian, Wilderness, and Fort Wilderness Lodges. You can easily grab some sandwiches or hot dogs and set up camp for a nice relaxed day.
If you’re craving a Dole Whip but don’t have a park ticket, you’re in luck – Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian Resort has just what you’re looking for. And unlike Animal Kingdom, they actually have Pineapple Vanilla swirl which tastes a lot better that way.
Ah the Disney Dining Plan… Some people hate it, others adore, most just don’t care. But believe it or not, the dining plan could easily be the best way to save money on food, but ONLY if you do it correctly. You’ll learn more in the next section below.
If you’re like me, you probably come to Disney World for the food (okay the rides too, but mostly the food). But at some time, you’ll get to the point when you already tried everything noteworthy and instead want to try something new. That’s why I recommend trying to come to Disney during a holiday season or a major event time period. Whether if you like new Pixar movie themed cupcakes or candy corn Dole Whip for Halloween, you’re bound to find some tasty seasonal treats!
Your snack credit is worth $5, don’t buy the water for $3.50. Get the Dole Whip Float instead. Or better, go to Les Halles Boulangerie and Patisserie and get their most expensive French treat.
Use your meal credits on lunch and dinner because you’ll get an entree, side, drink, and dessert. It’s such a better bargain.
Be a kid, have fun, and eat delicious food!
You can make reservations at a few Disney Springs restaurants using Open Table. This is very useful especially when the My Disney Experience app shows zero restaurant availability on their end.
