Guru Tips – Mixed Bag of Tricks and Tips

31We are continuing with tips from our team of Guru Travel Professionals. Enjoy!

Hi! I’m Donna Kay, a proud member of the Guru Travel team of travel professionals, and I would love to share some of my favorite Walt Disney World travel tips with you. First, if you stay at a Deluxe Resort take advantage of the room service. After a long day in the park there’s nothing better than a relaxing (and tasty) meal served to you in your resort room. You can take your time eating your meal, the kids can nap and eat later, you don’t have to get dressed up to go out. One of the best meals my family has ever had at Disney!
Next, bring a package of mixed color sharpies for autographs. The different colors will look great in your autograph book (or scrapbook), the bold lines will be easier to read, and choose a color that reminds you of the character who is signing the autograph (blue for Cinderella, red for Mickey, etc.). Bonus tip – use an unusual item to collect autographs. Some great ideas – a large book full of Disney stories, a pillowcase, a large Vinylmation, a photo mat.
Speaking of autographs, interact with the character for your picture instead of the classic “look at the character and smile” pose. Sip pretend tea with Alice, show your muscles with Gaston, offer Snow White an apple or ask Belle for a book recommendation. The pictures and memories you make will be priceless!
Pressed pennies are a fun, interactive and inexpensive souvenir. To get the best looking pennies start with ones that were minted before 1982, they have a higher copper content and look much better. Also clean your pennies before pressing them, the better they look before the are pressed the better they will look after they are pressed.
Finally, let the kids plan a day in their favorite park. Let them plan with absolutely no input from you, and don’t change their plans. You will learn some new things about your kids, and I can assure you they will be much better at planning than you think.  They will be so proud of themselves and will have so much fun on their special day, and it could just be your favorite as well!
Have a Magical Day!!

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
