- Believe it or not, there are a few things that you might do at Walt Disney World that you might not ever want anyone to know about.
Maybe you’re disappointed and cry when you drop your $4 ice cream cone. Or you’re embarrassed to admit that you just about lost your mind when you saw Mickey Mouse for the first time. It’s OK! We think these are the sorts of things you definitely SHOULD do when you’re at Disney World… even if you’re ashamed to tell anyone!
1. Eat… a lot!
Come on, guys! Break that diet! Spend an entire day trying Disney cupcakes or Dole Whip. Eat every seasonal food option available at your favorite Epcot festival! Have ice cream for breakfast!
There’s no reason you shouldn’t get dessert and choose the most unhealthy carb options at your favorite restaurant. Let the kiddos eat way too much popcorn and candy. Break all of your “healthy” parenting rules during the vacation.
Don’t worry… no one has to know! Our lips are sealed!
Disney is such a magical place. It encourages even the most grown-up grownups to feel like kids again. SO do it! Be a kid!
Get overly excited and cry when you meet your favorite Disney character. Cry when you see the castle… whether it’s for the first time or the 30th. Cry when you smell the water in Pirates of the Caribbean, or when you are sitting in a Haunted Mansion doom buggy. You can even cry when a cast member gives you a magical moment!
3. Sleep…or don’t
It’s OK if you aren’t a park lover. You can totally make Disney a true vacation. Sleep all day. Sit by the pool. Relax at the spa. Disney doesn’t have to be all about the rides and the theme parks. You can totally dedicate your trip to a little rest and relaxation.
On the flip side… don’t sleep! Stay up all night. Let the kiddos stay up all night after eating WAY TOO MUCH cotton candy. Hit every last second of Extra Magic Hours. Rope-drop your favorite park! Watch the Welcome show and a Kiss Goodnight in the same day!
Throw your hands in the air and scream like a child on Disney thrill rides! Don’t be afraid to scream as you shoot backwards on Expedition Everest or as you flip in the dark on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.
Shop ’til you drop. Spend your entire tax return or bonus on Disney plush and keychains. Buy all of the new D-Lish Disney merchandise! Or buy a Pandora charm for each one of your favorite Disney characters. I mean you don’t HAVE to tell the husband or wife… right?
So while there may be things that you don’t want anyone else back home to know about, there is absolutely no reason for you to NOT do them! Go ahead — your secrets are safe with us!
