20 of the Most Unique Experiences at Universal Orlando Resort

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

When planning for a vacation, I love to find the lesser-known things you can’t miss at that destination. It’s no different when it comes to theme parks. You probably know the highlights about Universal Orlando Resort: fun rides, hotels to stay at, delicious restaurants and entertainment, and — of course — The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This list offers twenty unique experiences at Universal Orlando Resort that you can do during your vacation.

There’s so much more you can do at Universal that you may not even be aware of. Like, did you know you can adopt a Pygmy Puff? Do you even know what a Pygmy Puff is!? Well, you’re about to find out. Whether it’s your first visit you’re planning or your 100th, I hope these spark some inspiration.

1. Try a Can of Whoville’s Who Hash

One of my new favorite foodie finds is over at Green Eggs and Ham Cafe in Seuss Landing with the can of Whoville’s Who Hash. Munching on your can of Who Hash while strolling through the land will make you feel as if you’re right in the middle of a Dr. Seuss book. You can also get Green Eggs & Ham Tots, Buffalo Chicken Tots, and more.

2. Have a Chat with a Volcano Spirit

If you venture inside the volcano Krakatau at Universal’s Volcano Bay, you will come across Vol, the spirit of the volcano! This trickster fire spirit is great to chat with and can be a bit playful with water when they want to be.

3. Tour the MEN IN BLACK Headquarters

Did you know that there is an immigration tour offered at MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack? This exclusive tour will allow you to explore the downstairs level of MIB headquarters. If you ask one of the agents nicely, they may have availability to take you down and meet a few of the aliens. *Note: This experience is not always available. Saving the galaxy can be quite time-consuming.*

4. Meet Characters From Your Favorite Movies

Did you know you can occasionally run into Men In Black agents, trade in your cash for bank notes with a Gringotts Goblin, or even practice your kung fu moves with Po from Kung Fu Panda? There are a ton of characters to meet that you may not even be aware of! Keep an eye out as you explore the parks to see who you can find.

5. Adopt a Pygmy Puff

And this, my friends, is a Pygmy Puff. They are one of the cutest creature companions in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and, when you adopt one, the shopkeepers will do a fun naming ceremony for you. You can find them at Magical Menagerie and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, and you can adopt them in three sizes!

6. Bowl a Strike in Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Even if you can’t bowl a strike (like me), it’s pretty sweet having a bowling alley in your hotelGalaxy Bowl at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort is small and intimate with only 10 lanes, which is part of its charm, but it does fill up fast. Don’t forget to make a reservation ahead of time and to bring your lucky bowling socks.

7. Snap a Pic with Your Favorite Shark

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

Our JAWs attraction will live on in our memories, but there is still one place you can get a taste of it. Quite literally — you can enjoy a Shark Attack drink at Chez Alcatraz. This little bar pays homage to the attraction and even has our favorite shark right next to it for pictures.

8. Brave a 125-Foot Drop Slide Called Ko’okiri Body Plunge

Your vacation is the perfect time to face your fears, right? Conquer the tallest drop slide in Orlando at Universal’s Volcano Bay. It also happens to have an awesome view… that is if you can keep your eyes open.

9. Try All Six Kinds of Butterbeer Treats

Yes, you read that right. There are six kinds of Butterbeer treats you can try in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including fudge, ice cream, potted cream and — of course — the three types of drink. *Certain Butterbeer treats are offered seasonally.*

10. Dance with a Panda

Sometimes you just need an impromptu dance party with a panda. Have no fear, Hashtag the Panda is here to help! You can meet and dance with Hashtag before racing through New York with Jimmy Fallon. You can also see a performance by the Ragtime Gals.

11. Embark on a Rum-Tasting Journey

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

Take a break from the parks and unwind with a rum-tasting journey led by a Rum Captain at Strong Water Tavern at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. They also happen to have amazing empanadas. *Operations are temporarily suspended for Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Click here for updates.*

12. Get Your Putt-Putt On

As a self-proclaimed mini golf extraordinaire, one of my favorite things to do is play a round at the Hollywood Drive-In Golf in Universal CityWalk. It’s the perfect low-key activity to end the day. Plus, the haunted and sci-fi themes of each course speak to my geeky heart.

13. See Your Favorite Movies On… Water Screens?

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

End your day at the parks with a front-row view of the nighttime show Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration in Universal Studios Florida. There’s something really epic about seeing a gigantic T. Rex from Jurassic World roaring in your face on MASSIVE water screens. *This show is available on select nights. Make sure to check the park map or Universal Orlando Mobile App for updates.*

14. Enjoy a Lunch Inspired by Dishes from Across the Globe

Right at the front of Universal’s Islands of Adventure is one of my favorite restaurants, Confisco Grille. This hidden gem (that just so happens to be in plain sight) features an eclectic menu with a mixture of global cuisines like Asian, Turkish, Mediterranean, Greek, Russian, Polish, and more. You can also find mysterious confiscated goods inside that you may recognize from the park.

15. Escape to Waterfall Cove

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

This is my kind of hidden gem when it comes to water parks. Waterfall Cove is a secluded area tucked away at the base of Krakatau (the volcano) in Volcano Bay. It makes for a peaceful escape from the crowds and has some gorgeous waterfalls that will make you feel as if you’ve been transported to an exotic location.

16. Explore Lost Continent

An enchanted talking fountain, exotic cuisine, a bazaar filled with trinkets and treasures, psychic readings, and more. Lost Continent is one of the most richly-themed areas of Islands of Adventure with stunning backdrops for photos, and the perfect place to relax and grab a bite to eat. I highly recommend having lunch at Mythos and enjoying the excellent views of the park from the outside seating.

17. Eat Burgushi – Where the Cow and the Fish Become One

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

Take the fixings of both a burger and sushi, put them together, and bam! Burgushi. Chow down on this land and sea fusion at The Cowfish in Universal CityWalk. A guest favorite is The High-Class Hillbilly-Southern Style Bar-B-Q-Shi (pictured).

18. Live Your Best Rockstar Life

I love music, which makes Hard Rock Hotel one of my favorite places to stay. One of the fun things to do is the memorabilia tour. You can see priceless items from some of your singers and bands. Feel inspired? You can rent a guitar or record player to play in your room after! *Some hotel amenities may be temporarily unavailable during your visit.*

19. Cast Your Own Spells in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

Create your own magic in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with an interactive wand. You have to try your hand at the Meteolojinx in Diagon Alley (pictured). My personal favorite spell is Incendio at Flimflams Lanterns in Diagon Alley. It’s so cool at night! You may even discover some hidden spells as you progress in your practice.

20. Sing Karaoke on the Big Stage

Even if you’re afraid of being in the spotlight, singing karaoke at Rising Star in Universal CityWalk is so much fun! You get backup singers and even a hype man to help make you the star of the show. Plus, the lights are bright enough on stage so you can barely see the crowd — just in case you need a courage booster. *Check the Universal Orlando Mobile App for when Rising Star and other CityWalk venues are open.*

This lush, tropical oasis has four themed areas inspired by the Pacific Isles, each with a mixture of both relaxing and thrilling experiences. For those looking for adventure, the 200-foot-tall volcano, Krakatau, towers at the heart of the theme park with water slides that twist and turn throughout it like the Krakatua Aqua Coaster.

What You Need to Pack in Your Disney World Park Bag

Disney World park bag

What will you need for a day at Disney World? What kinds of things should you pack for in your Disney World park bag for an enjoyable day? If you’ve never been to Disney World or maybe it’s been a while, you may be unsure what you’d like to carry with you. We have some suggestions as to what we recommend that you pack in your Disney World park bag for a magical day in the parks.

For Everyone

We think the following items are useful whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, or with a family.

Hand Sanitizer: Even before the pandemic, it has always been important to have a way to clean your hands on the go. There are a lot of people touching the same rides, queues, and more so you’ll want to keep your hands clean throughout the day and before meals. We recommend bringing some travel size hand sanitizer. We especially love these alcohol free hand sanitizer wipes for kids.

Sunscreen: It’s sunny almost year round in Florida! Even if you are traveling in the winter, there’s a good chance that you’ll enjoy some sunny days and will still want to have some sunscreen to apply throughout the day. It’s MUCH cheaper to bring with you than to have to purchase it from a gift shop in the parks.

Portable Phone Charger: Between taking pictures and videos of your magical memories and checking and making dining reservations and FastPass+ selections in your My Disney Experience account, there’s a good chance that your phone battery won’t last all day in the parks. We recommend a portable phone charger to keep your phone charged throughout your day. I’ve heard great things about this Anker portable charger.

Sunglasses:

Water Bottle: You can always ask for a free cup of ice water at any quick service dining location, but in the heat, it can be nice to have your own water bottle to carry with you and refill throughout the parks. If you’re sensitive to the taste of Florida tap water, you may want to bring a drink flavoring. We love collapsible water bottles to save space in your bag when not in use.

Gum: Did you know that you cannot purchase gum at Disney World? It’s true! If you want to enjoy a piece of gum during your visit, you’ll have to bring some with you! We recommend ordering a multipack from Amazon so you won’t run out.

First Aid Kit: From blisters from uncomfortable shoes to scrapes, you never know when you may need a band-aid or even some Neosporin. These Johnson & Johnson Mini First Aid Kits are the perfect size to toss in your bag and go!

Mickey (or Minnie) Ears: Is any park outfit complete without “ears?” There are SO many to choose from! You can show off your style, favorite characters, and more designs. We love these navy blue ears with pink polka dots or you’ll never go wrong with the classic Mickey ears hat. You can even order an inexpensive 3-pack of Minnie ears.

Ziploc Bags: Ziploc bags can prove useful in the parks for a number of reasons! If you have a quick rain shower and end up with wet clothes, have leftover snacks without a resealable container, or a little one with an accident, you may be thankful for carrying a few Ziploc bags in your Disney World park bag.

Lanyards: If you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you’ll receive a complimentary magic band with your reservation so you don’t have to worry about carrying a hard card ticket, but you may want to try pin trading. How cute is this Mickey Mouse lanyard or this Star Wars lanyard?

Disney World park bag

Additional Items When Traveling with Kids

We think the following items are helpful to have in your park bag when you’re traveling with kids.

Mickey Mouse Stroller Hook: Regardless of the size of your stroller, it can be helpful to have an extra place to hang things. We love this Mickey Mouse stroller hook from Petunia Pickle Bottom for hanging jackets, bags, and even the resort refillable drink mugs.

Stroller Tag: If you’ve been to the parks before, then you probably know how many strollers are in the stroller parking areas. With all those strollers so close together, it can be difficult to quickly and easily find yours (especially since cast members often move them so there aren’t open spaces). A fun activity before you go would be to make a sign to hang on your stroller. If you aren’t very crafty or are short on time, these rainbow pom poms can be great to hang on the handle.

Autograph Book (and Sharpie or pen): If you’re planning to meet any characters during your visit, you may want an autograph book for them to sign, especially during character meals. Some guests even like the Disney Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters so each character can sign their corresponding page. Don’t forget to bring a Sharpie or pen for the characters to use as many handlers don’t carry any for you.

Light Up Toys: Light up toys are SO popular in the parks! Kids love playing with these light up toys while they wait for nighttime spectaculars like Happily Ever After. This two pack of Mickey Mouse flashing wands are perfect to keep the Disney magic going. We also love this six pack of flashing Mickey Mouse necklaces or two pack of snowflake wands for any Frozen fan!

Bubble Wand: Bubble toys are another popular souvenir in the parks! These toys can set you back about $25 though so we always try to bring one with us. We love this coloring changing LED bubble wand for less than $15!

Glow Sticks: Glow sticks are a fun and inexpensive treat for the kids while you enjoy the parks at night. You can order a multi-pack of glow sticks so the kids can wear some (or even share with other kids) every night of your stay.

Reusable Straws: Disney Parks have removed plastic straws from the theme parks and resorts. They do offer paper straws at most locations, but these can be difficult for kids to use or even anyone enjoying a frozen beverage. You can bring these stainless steel straws or these collapsible silicone straws that come with a carrying case.

Additional Items When Traveling in the Summer

We think these items are extra useful when traveling in the summer or for our guests who are sensitive to the heat.

Cooling Towels: Cooling towels don’t take up a lot of space in your bag, but can really help keep you cool! These cooling towels use moisture from the towel to draw the sweat away from your skin and stay cool for up to 3 hours! You can order a four pack here.

Handheld Fan or Misting Spray Fan: A handheld fan or misting spray fan can come in handy while waiting for the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom or just walking throughout the parks. Most of the spray fans are battery operated while many of the handheld fans can be charged with a USB port so you can even use your portable charger for your fan! You can order a misting fan here or a handheld fan here.

We also have a list of ten things to make traveling with a toddler easier.

7 Reasons to Spend a Day at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Do you love lazy rivers, water slides, or swimming? If so, then you’ll want to add a day at one of the Disney World water parks, Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon, to your next Disney World vacation! With the warm temperatures in Florida almost year round, you can enjoy Disney World’s water parks during almost any vacation. 

Here are seven reasons to spend a day at Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park:

1.Blizzard Beach has a special story all its own 

Photo: Disney

A ski resort in Florida? You heard that right! As the story goes, a legendary snowstorm in Florida prompted local opportunists to build a ski resort. When Florida’s climate returned to normal temperatures and the snow began to melt, Blizzard Beach was born.

 2. Blizzard Beach is home to one of the fastest waterslides in the world

Photo: Disney

The ultimate water park thrill ride, Summit Plummet, is a 120-foot-tall waterslide with a near-vertical drop. Guests accelerate up to 65 mph on the slide, making it one of the fastest attractions at Walt Disney World.

3. There’s no shortage of tasty treats

Photo: Disney

From churros to Mickey ice cream bars, you can discover many of your favorite snacks at the Disney Water Parks. There are plenty of menu options to choose from, including these loaded nachos from Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments.

4. The first chairlift in Florida was built at Blizzard Beach

Photo: Disney

Want to know a Disney secret? This colorful chairlift, built to ferry guests to the top of Mount Gushmore, was the first of its kind in the state of Florida. The chairlift offers a scenic bird’s-eye view of Blizzard Beach and easy access to Summit Plummet, Slush Gusher and Teamboat Springs.

5. There’s a full-service beach bar serving Blizzard Beach-inspired cocktails

Photo: Disney

Piña CoLAVA anyone? How about a Blue Blizzard Margarita? The Polar Pub serves as Blizzard Beach’s own full-service beach bar and offers specialty cocktails inspired by the park’s stories.

6. Cross Country Creek is one of the longest lazy rivers in the U.S.A.

Photo: Disney

At 3,000 feet, Cross Country Creek ranks among the longest lazy rivers in the country. It takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete one journey around the waterway – depending, of course, on how lazy you want to be!

7. Teamboat Springs is one of the world’s longest family whitewater raft ride

Photo: Disney

One of the world’s longest family whitewater raft ride is none other than Teamboat Springs at Blizzard Beach. Along the winding rapids of Teamboat Springs, guests encounter remnants of the fabled snowstorm in the form of snowshoes, snow shovels, melting icicles and a snow mobile.

We’re taking fun in the sun to the next level on board the Disney Wish with a brand-new family water attraction and three themed districts that offer dedicated space for families, children and adults alike.

You’ll be immersed in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts aboard the first-ever Disney attraction at sea, AquaMouse. Complete with show scenes, lighting and special effects, and splashtacular surprises, this wild water ride is sure to delight everyone in the family as they zig, zag and zoom through 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks.

Families will have more pools, more deck space and more dining than ever before in an expansive district themed to Mickey and friends. In addition to AquaMouse, the area will feature six pools — spaciously staggered among tiered decks and surrounded by lounge chairs — and a fresh take on quick and casual fare with a festive character twist. 

Little ones will delight in an all-new Toy Story-themed district designed especially for families with toddlers and young children. This whimsical water wonderland will include a splash zone, wading pool, family waterslide and smoothie bar. 

Adults will indulge in sun-drenched serenity at Quiet Cove, a peaceful refuge dedicated to lounging, sipping and soaking. Set away from the bustle of family activities, this secluded adults-only district will feature a luxurious infinity pool, poolside bar and chic cafe. 

Prepared and Served with Flair – A Culinary Cabaret

With the debut of three brand-new family dining concepts ranging from theatrical entertainment to cinematic adventure to sophisticated elegance, dinner on board the Disney Wish will be so much more than a meal – it will be a chance to interact with favorite Disney stories in exciting new ways.

Dedicated shows and interactive entertainment will come to life all around the hall, putting you front and center as you play a special role in the magic. 

Luna is a brand-new entertainment hub that will transition from a daytime setting for family fun into an elegant evening venue for adult-exclusive entertainment, offering a variety of live shows and interactive programming throughout the day.

The Walt Disney Theatre is an opulent show palace that will come alive with original Broadway-style stage productions developed exclusively for Disney Cruise Line. 

The Wonderland and Never Land Cinemas are intimate screening rooms that will provide you more options than ever to watch classic and first-run films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and more. 

In true Disney Cruise Line fashion, the Disney Wish will offer a robust menu of world-class entertainment throughout every voyage, including spectacular stage shows, exhilarating deck parties, one-of-a-kind character experiences, fun family activities, contemporary cabarets and more.

15 Tips for Visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

You’ve booked your vacation to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Now what? If you’re planning to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for the very first time, you may need some tips for visiting the Wizarding World!

I remember the first time I knew I was going to be able to go to Hogwarts and try a Butterbeer just like Harry Potter. I was overflowing with excitement, which only increased ten-fold when I found myself finally walking under the arches into Hogsmeade village. I’m pretty sure I stood there for a good chunk of time staring and taking it all in before finally making a mad dash to get everything done in a matter of hours.

Planning on how best to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for the first time can be daunting. With two lands that span across two theme parks — Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida — and tons of things to do, eat, drink, and see in each, you can easily find yourself missing out on some of the incredible details and experiences.

Here’s a list of planning tips and can’t-miss experiences you’ll want to check out before your upcoming visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort.

15 Tips for Visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Don’t Try Doing It All in One Day

If you have one day to spend in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can get the majority of things done, while enjoying the rest of the theme park attractions. But, if you truly want to get the full wizarding world experience without feeling rushed, I recommend dedicating a day in Hogsmeade (Islands of Adventure) and a day in Diagon Alley (Universal Studios).

Remember to Pack Your Robe and Wand

It’s not every day you can wander the streets of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley like a real witch or wizard. Make sure to add your robe, wand, and any other Harry Potter apparel or accessories to your packing list for some real epic pics. If you want to get your gear during your visit, there are many shops to check out throughout the wizarding world.

Arrive Early and Stay Late

Try to get there first thing in the morning for fewer crowds. (If you’re staying at a Universal hotel, definitely take advantage of the Early Park Admission perk!) On the flipside, if the theme parks are open later, try to stay until nighttime. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is absolutely breath-taking at night.

Ride the Hogwarts Express Both Ways

Hop aboard the Hogwarts Express and travel back and forth between Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. Make sure to take it both ways as each way has a different experience(You’ll need a park-to-park ticket in order to ride the Hogwarts Express.)

Don’t Miss Diagon Alley

The entrance to Diagon Alley is cleverly disguised as a brick wall in the London area, just like it’s described as in the films and books. Believe it or not, some people (like my brother’s friends) walk right by it!

Try All Six Types of Butterbeer Treats

You’re probably familiar with Butterbeer, the frothy drink from the films and books that is reminiscent of butterscotch and shortbread. But, did you know there are six different Butterbeer treats you can try in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, like soft-serve ice cream and fudge? (Certain Butterbeer treats are offered seasonally.)

Don’t Skip the Queues

Typically, I’m all for getting through queues quickly, but the ride queues in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter are ones you don’t want to miss. You get to see the iconic rooms and details inside Hogwarts castle and Gringotts bank, and even pass through Platform 9 ¾ on your way to ride the Hogwarts Express.

See All the Shows

A choir of singing frogs AND a theater troupe who performs with puppets? What more could you want. There are five live shows —  two in Hogsmeade and three in Diagon Alley —  you can see perform daily. (Check the Universal Orlando Resort App for show times.)

Ride Both the Sidecar and Motorbike

There are two ways to ride on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and each seat gives you a unique experience. I’ll take it one step further and say I’ve heard riding at night is, and I quote, “life-changing.”

Don’t Miss Out on Magical Experiences

Make time for some of the more lesser-known experiences like sending a letter with a Hogsmeade stamp, mixing your own elixirschatting with a goblin, or creating your very own moving pictures at Shutterbutton’s.

Check Out Knockturn Alley

You may be too distracted by the fire-breathing dragon atop Gringotts bank when you first enter Diagon Alley and walk right by Knockturn Alley. Put your brave face on and wander into this shadowy alleyway, which gives you a taste of Dark Magic in the wizarding world.

Treat Yourself to More Than One Wizarding Treat

Chocolate Frogs, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, Sugar Quills, Pumpkin Pasties, and more. Nab a few of your favorite wizarding world sweets before you leave and enjoy them while reminiscing about your trip after you get back home.

Don’t Forget Your Interactive Wand Map

Photo: Universal Orlando Resort

If you treat yourself to an interactive wand, don’t forget about the map! Each wand comes with a map that shows where you can cast spells throughout Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Don’t be like me wandering around aimlessly searching the ground for bronze spell markers because you forgot it.

Explore the Shop Windows

Your attention may be pulled toward the rides or getting a Butterbeer, but make sure to take some time to do some “window” shopping. There are incredible details in each shop window that bring the magic to life right before your eyes.

Don’t Miss Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter any time of the year is quite magical, but coming during the holidays… it’s a whole ‘nother experience you won’t want to miss. Need more convincing? Two words: hot Butterbeer.

While sailing on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, stop by Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats or Sweet on You for a tasty treat to share!

10 Activities and Ideas to Countdown to Disney Vacations

You’ve booked your family’s Disney World, Disneyland, or Disney Cruise Line vacation! Now what? How will you pass the coming weeks and months before your magical adventure? There are so many fun ways to countdown to Disney vacations! You can get the whole family involved to build excitement for your visit.

Take a Virtual Disney Vacation

We recently wrote a whole list of ideas about how you can take a virtual Disney vacation. Some kids like to be prepared to know what to expect so you can watch YouTube videos. We also love making Disney Parks treats at home when we can’t visit the parks in person.

Have a Very Merry Unbirthday Party or Tea Party

Start by watching “Alice in Wonderland” and then celebrate your un-birthday! Set the scene and decorate your table with these colorful flowers. For dessert, make these Cheshire Cat cupcakes or a Cheshire Cat cake roll. A fun activity for the kids is to make their own talking doorknob.

While you’re on the “Alice in Wonderland” theme, you can have a tea party! You can make your own edible tea cups out of ice cream cones. Disney Family even has a mad tea party mousse recipe. The kids can even make and decorate their own tea pots with this template.

Make and Decorate Mickey Cookies

What better way to get some quality time than to bake cookies? You can bake and decorate Disney cookies while you countdown to Disney! Get as creative as you can.

You can find an inexpensive five pack of Mickey Mouse cookie cutters or this 11 piece set including Mickey heads, glove, and more. Don’t forget fun sprinkles like these red, white and black Mickey sprinkles or these pink, purple and green Mickey sprinkles.

Make a Countdown Chain

A countdown chain can be both a fun visual for the kids as you count down the days until your vacation and a great activity to keep them busy! Depending on how early you begin your countdown to Disney, you can count down the number of weeks to go or the number of days to go. Or, make a combination of both! We have a PDF version of the countdown chain that you can print at the bottom.

Have a Disney Movie Marathon

There are so many attractions and shows inspired by Disney movies. Make some time to catch up on any you may have missed. Disney+ has a great selection or you can always order some relatively inexpensively from Amazon.

We recommend the animated classics for Magic Kingdom, Frozen for Epcot, Toy Story and the Star Wars trilogies for Hollywood Studios, and Avatar for Animal Kingdom, just to name a few.

Coloring Books

If you have little ones, you can pick up Disney coloring books from your local dollar store. They can color pictures of their favorite characters that they hope to meet during your vacation. We also love Crayola Color Wonder Mess Free Coloring for little ones, even to occupy them on the airplane.

For adults, there are some amazing Disney coloring books! Some of our favorites include Art of Coloring: Disney Animals, Art of Coloring: Disney Villains, Disney Dreams Collection from Thomas Kinkade Studios, Art of Coloring: Disney Princess, Art of Coloring: Mickey & Minnie and Art of Coloring: Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

You can even sign up for a FREE Disney World coloring book to get started ASAP here.

Read a Disney Themed Book Series

Kingdom Keepers

From TheKingdomKeepers.com, “In this fantastical thriller, five young teens tapped as models for theme park “guides” find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls. Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI–which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging–Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park. The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming? Finn’s confusion only increases when he encounters Wayne, an elderly Imagineer who tells him that the park is in grave danger. Led by the scheming witch, Maleficent, a mysterious group of characters called the Overtakers is plotting to destroy Disney’s beloved realm, and maybe more. This gripping high-tech tale will thrill every kid who has ever dreamed of sneaking into Walt Disney World after hours and wondered what happens at night, when the park is closed.”

You can start with the Kingdom Keepers Boxed Set which includes the first three books of the series. This is perfect for older kids to read on their own or mom and dad to read together with younger ones.

A Twisted Tale

For adult readers, you could try the “A Twisted Tale” series. This series will “reintroduce fans to their favorite worlds and stories – with game-changing twists that have readers feverishly turning pages to follow their heroes and heroines into all-new adventures.”

We recommend starting with A Twisted Tale Collection: A Boxed Set of three books.

Make Mickey or Minnie Ears

The Disney Family site has a ton of fun DIY projects to make your own pair of ears. For most of these, you’ll just need some felt, a headband, scissors, and glue. Some of our favorite projects include traditional Mickey and Minnie ears, Stitch ears, Yoda ears, and Marie ears.

Or, if you just want to decorate the ears, you can order a set of plain ears and add ribbons, sequins, and more. This will really help you show off your unique Disney style!

Host a Pirate Dinner

Prepare to ride Pirates of the Caribbean with a pirate night celebration. If you want to look the part, check out this Jack Sparrow Dress Up Kit or make your own eye patches.

For dessert, you can make cookies decorated with these skull and sword stencils. Or, make these adorable baby croc cupcakes.

If you are planning a surprise trip and looking for a big reveal, this would be a great way to do it! You can end the night with a treasure hunt. You can even print these Pirates of the Caribbean clue cards and map to add to the fun!

Planning Books

It can be fun to get the whole family involved in planning your Disney World vacation. You can read together about which attractions you just can’t miss. It can help to get the kids involved so you know their interests and “must do’s.” We recommend Birnbaum’s 2021 Walt Disney World: The Official Vacation Guide or The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2021.

We think you’ll also love the behind the scenes look at how Disney creates magic for guests in Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real.

Bonus: We also love playing Disney music at home and in the car while we countdown to Disney! There are some great (free) Disney stations on Pandora or you can order a CD, like the Disney Theme Park Classics or the Walt Disney World Official Album.

Earth Month is a great time to reflect on our personal relationship with our beautiful planet and how we can all care for the world we share. Whether it’s reducing your own ecological footprint, planting a tree, creating a butterfly garden or learning more about wildlife and conservation, all of these efforts unite us as we do our part to protect nature’s treasures. And while Disney theme parks celebrate all living things every day, during the annual Earth Day 2021 Celebration there’s an added opportunity for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park guests to connect with the magic of nature through engaging activities designed to educate and inspire the whole family.

From April 18 to 24, 2021, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will host limited-time experiences including unique Disney character appearances, fun learning opportunities, specialty merchandise, themed food and beverage, a new Wilderness Explorer activity and more. Here’s a look at what’s in store to spark your curiosity about wildlife and inspire your own conservation efforts:

  • The Animation Experience at Conservation Station shows how Disney Artists bring favorite characters to life by using animals for inspiration. For the Earth Day Celebration and the month of April, you can learn to draw characters – including Dumbo, Terk, Squirt, Shere Khan, Simba and Scar – whose real-life counterparts represent amazing stories of conservation work around the globe.
  • Catch a glimpse of some special characters who will join other favorite Disney pals on Discovery River Character Cruises.

Snack around the park sampling Earth Day eats, including a selection of limited-time specialty cupcakes: the Creature Comfort’s Honey Bee Cupcake, the strawberry-flavored Flamingo Cupcake at Flame Tree Barbecue, or the Sea Turtle Graham Cracker Cupcake (plus the Crave the Wave cocktail!) at Restaurantosaurus Lounge. Be sure to dig in soon because the treats are only available for a limited time.

  • Set out on a series of self-guided, nature-themed challenges and earn a special Wilderness Explorer limited-time Earth Day Nature badge.
  • Hunt for an Earth Day 2021 limited-edition Te Fiti Moana trading pin.

Any time you visit the park, marvel at unique animals and meet the newest arrivals. Most recently, the park welcomed the birth of Ranger, and you can get a glimpse of the rambunctious five-month-old white rhino calf and his crash on your journey aboard Kilimanjaro Safaris. While on safari, also keep an eye out for two young Masai giraffe who were born a few months ago, and playful Nigerian dwarf goats that hang out at the warden’s outpost.

  • Disney PhotoPass Service captures magical memories with special in-park Earth Day 2021 backgrounds and Magic Shots, including an all-new photo opportunity. In addition, Earth Day 2021 screen savers and Zoom backgrounds can be downloaded from the My Disney Experience PhotoPass gallery.
  • Beginning April 2, you can watch as artisans transform 40 tons of sand into a detailed sculpture celebrating National Geographic’s “Secrets of the Whales,” an original series streaming on Disney+ on Earth Day. The intricate sculpted masterpiece will be located on the Discovery Island Stage until April 30.
