13 Rookie Mistakes at Walt Disney World Resort

When it comes to choosing a vacation destination on planet Earth, the possibilities are endless. You can travel abroad and experience cultures outside of your own in other countries. You can choose to stay here in the United States, visit another state’s annual fair and enjoy entertainment and attractions that you cannot experience in your own hometown. Maybe an educational venue is more your style; those possibilities are endless too.

On a traditional vacation, however, you’ll more than likely have to choose one experience over another, one country over another, one state and its museums over another state and its offerings. But what if you could travel to one destination and be immersed in the history of its beginnings, its development, where it’s been and where it’s headed? And what if—at that same venue—you could also experience diverse cultures and learn about each culture’s history and customs? Wouldn’t it be great if, while you’re there, you could also sample some of each culture’s cuisine? And wouldn’t it be even more bang for your buck if you could also enjoy live entertainment, amazing attractions, interactive exhibits and out-of-this-world nighttime shows?

Such a place does exist, and it’s closer than you think. At the Walt Disney World outside of Orlando, Florida, the experiences are so many and so diverse that you will never go wrong in choosing it as your next family vacation destination. But with all it has to offer, you might go wrong in how you experience it, especially if you’re a first-time Guest to the parks, also known as a Disney World rookie.

Here are 13 rookie mistakes people make at Walt Disney World and how you can avoid them.

About Rebekah Tyndall Burkett

Rebekah grew up in Forney, Texas and lives just outside of Dallas. She’s been a Disney superfan since childhood, experiencing the magic at Walt Disney World for the first time at the age of 11. Journeys to Neverland are at least a yearly occurrence for her, her husband and her four children (the Fab Four). When they go to the parks, they stay in Florida for three weeks at a time. Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories. Her hobbies include creative writing, paper crafting and interviewing Imagineers. She is also an advocate for Autism Awareness and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds.
