What not to miss on a 1 week Disney World vacation…
What better way to spend vacation than to go to Disney World for an entire week. Disney World is such a magical place that it casts a spell on not only children but adults as well. A 1 week Disney World vacation is a chance in a lifetime to take in the sights and sounds of one of the most visited and storied theme parks in the entire world.
One of the must do’s when you vacation at Disney World is stay at one of the Walt Disney World resorts. As a guest at one of the Disney World resorts you are in the center of the magic. There are so many perks to being a guest at a Disney resort. Guests can board complimentary buses at the Orlando airport that take them directly to and from the resort. Resort guests also gain admission to the theme parks an hour before the general public and select parks remain open on specific evenings up to three hours after closing to the general public. Resort guests can also take advantage of discounted meals and ticket packages.
Another fabulous way to spend time during your 1 week Disney World vacation is to see the Cirque du Soleil. Cirque du Soleil is the ultimate embodiment of magic. It is not your typical circus and is above and beyond anything you will ever experience. Cirque du Soleil is a mixture of circus arts and street entertainment that stirs the imagination and a show not to be missed.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is also another sight that you don’t want to miss. Although the Animal Kingdom has only a handful of rides and does not stay open after dark it more than makes up for this with its focus on animals, its welcoming aura, and detailed and elaborate themes. Animal Kingdom allows you to take your time and drink in its lush and tropical feel. It’s not a zoo nor is it a theme park but rather a wonderful mixture of both.
While you are taking in the various attractions of Disney World you will surely have food on your mind. Instead of sticking to the usual fast food menu you should treat yourself to a dinner out at one of Disney’s world class restaurants. The California Grill at the Contemporary, Shula’s Steakhouse at The Dolphin, or Wolfgang Puck’s Downtown Disney are just a few of the five-star dining establishments at Disney World. You owe it to yourself during your one week vacation at Disney World to splurge and enjoy.
What would a 1 week Disney World vacation be without a stop at the Magic Kingdom? Cinderella’s Castle is at the heart of the Magic Kingdom and is surrounded by various themed lands such as Fantasyland and Mickey’s Toontown Fair. The highlights and must see’s of the Magic Kingdom include Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, and the “Wishes” fireworks show. The Magic Kingdom brings out the kid in all of us and is a timeless theme park experience.
Before concluding your 1 week Disney World vacation you must enjoy a character meal. There are tons of Disney characters at these meals and you can choose to dine at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. No Disney World vacation is complete unless you meet the famous mouse that started it all….Mickey Mouse.
