Did you know the Disney website has a fantastic mapping tool that helps with planning your days at the Walt Disney World Resort parks?
Knowing the layouts of each park is essential to ensure that you are getting the most out of each day of your Disney vacation. You can decide in advance which rides and experiences are right for you and your family and get to your selected dining experiences on time. By using Disney’s customized mapping tool, you are able to familiarize your family with the parks before you leave for your trip and get an incredible memento for free!
How does it work?
Click here to go to the Walt Disney World customized maps site and select Let’s Get Started. You will be asked to log in to your Disney account. If you do not have one, simply follow the instructions to set up a free account.
From there you will be given the option to select the ages of the members of your family for suggestions on age appropriate activities. Choose the rides and experiences that interest you and continue to follow the directions to highlight the places that you wish to visit. You will make these selections for each park and customize your trip.
At the end of your map planning session, you will be given the option to decide the theme of your maps; with the options being a classic fairytale style or a character theme. You can choose to have the maps mailed to your home, or print them out on your personal printer. The maps mailed from Disney are printed on a high quality paper and make a great scrapbook addition or could be framed when you return from your trip! Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery if you select this option.
Once you receive your maps, review the layouts of each park and note the locations of restroom facilities, restaurants, rides and shows. We generally take our maps along with us on the trip to review before we leave the hotel room. Once we are in the parks, we reference the MyDisneyExperience app to locate everything we wish to see that day.
Knowing the layout of the parks can save a lot of time and get you to your destinations faster than you can say, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!”
