FIVE Mistakes to Avoid on Your First Disney Trip

Embarking on your first journey to Disney World will become a funny story one day, brimming with excitement. However, amidst the magic, first-timers often make a few unnoticed mistakes. Here are five to avoid for a seamless Disney adventure:

Missing the Camera Cue

When visiting Disney, mastering the art of posing for ride photos is a must. However, on your first visit, you may find yourself caught off guard. Keep an eye out for cameras on rides like Space Mountain and TRON Lightcycle / Run. Youcan always Google camera positions beforehand or watch it on some YouTube videos so you can pose for the photos beforehand!

Queueing for B-Level Rides

Classics like The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh are undeniably cute, but they may not be worth the wait in line. To prioritize your time wisely, focus on flagship rides such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Space Mountain. Check out the most popular rides in each park and use Disney Genie+ for them!

Forgetting to Remove Accessories

Hats and glasses may seem like great accessories, but they can obstruct your face in ride photos. Remember to remove them before embarking on attractions like Slinky Dog Dash to ensure clear shots of your Disney debut.

Brave Kali River Being Unprepared

If you choose to brave the waters of Kali River Rapids without a poncho, be prepared for a drenching. Having a poncho is essential to stay dry on this aquatic ride. You can also bring a pair of slippers and an extra T-shirt just so you are safe.

Remember, every first Disney trip is bound to be an adventure, one you'll likely laugh about in a few years. But at least with these Famvia tips, you're prepared for any challenges that may arise.
