Tips for planning a trip to Disney

Trip to Disney: must-haves to pack in your suitcase

Preparing a trip to the Walt Disney’s magical world requires considerable planning and certain essential items to make life easier. Here are some tips to consider before the big departure day. 

Careful planning and efficient organizing are the key to a successful trip to Disney World. It goes without saying that your children will be eternally grateful to you for bringing autograph notebooks for them to collect their favourite characters’ signatures, and that they’ll gladly sport the costumes you packed for them. For the rest, here’s a checklist to go through before zipping up your suitcase. 

1) A travel guide

 Don’t leave without a tourism guide such as this one, which includes a host of practical tips to make the most of the various Disney World parks.
