The ages, interests and party size of group going to Walt Disney World can drastically change the vacation experience–in an AWESOME way. In this article, I’m covering the benefits of taking a multi-generational vacation to Walt Disney World.
Let’s start by getting this out of the way:
You DO NOT have to do everything TOGETHER!
Yes! I said that!
I think this is the most important thing to consider when planning a multi-generational vacation to WDW. The resort is designed to appeal and offer a variety of activities, dining and accommodations for all ages, stages and budgets! It’s important to respect little one’s nap time and grandma’s need for a break pool side (or her own nap) or interest in World Showcase at Epcot over a thrill ride. No need to sacrifice one for the other.
With careful planning and the mindset to roll with the punches, you can accommodate everyone’s needs. Grandparents can enjoy a Garden Tour at Epcot or casual stroll across world showcase while the littlest ones nap. Then, the younger crowd can join up a ride on Frozen, Soarin’ and Nemo and Friends, the aquarium, preceded of followed by a family meal at Garden Grill. This where the ninja skills of a Disney vacation planner (like me 🙂 ) can really help. Typically, we’ve been there and done that or planned for someone that has–making us great at helping you anticipate stressors and minimizing the stress while on vacation! Best yet, everyone can do the things they’d like to do while I’ll making memories altogether.
There are attractions suitable for everyone.
There are plenty of attractions suitable for ALL ages. Including newborn to 99+. There is never a too young or too old age for Disney. If you love adventure and making memories, WDW is for you!
Memories are priceless!
A trip to Chef Mickey’s with your little one along with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, can be a truly memorable experience, worthy of filling up your phone’s camera roll! I’ve personally been on a trip with ages 8 weeks to 80. It was an amazing trip that everyone still talks about and the photos are everywhere!
I could go on… and on…. about the pros to a multi-generational trip. If it’s a possibility and everyone has a interest in going, GO! You won’t regret it!
One last thing…. BUY THE MEMORY MAKER!
Another thing you won’t regret are all the memories documented. Photos on Main Street U.S.A. in front of Cinderella’s castle, the Tree of Life, Spaceship Earth, ride photos, character meals and meet and greets that were taking by a Photopass Photogragher. High quality photos that you didn’t have to ask a stranger to take a picture with your phone. Or even worse, someone misses out being in the picture because they were taking the picture.
If everyone in the group is linked in My Disney Experience to the party who purchased the Memory Maker Service, everyone’s pictures will load to that account and will be downloadable! This is an economical way to have a professional photographer document your trip! And you can always split the cost across the family if you so chose.
There are so many variables to planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Deciding how many days you will be staying, number of days in the parks, what you will do and eat, etc., it can be overwhelming! That’s why I am a Disney vacation planner.
