Top 5 Ways To Save Your Energy During Your Walt Disney World Vacation

If you are like me, when you go to Walt Disney World, you want to see and do everything. It’s not just that the trip is an expensive one, but the place is so exciting, it’s hard to pick and choose what to experience. I want it all even if I don’t have an unlimited supply of energy.

Although it’s pretty much impossible to do everything in one, two, or even five Walt Disney World trips, there are some tricks to making sure you leave with the satisfaction of winning at Disney World. It all comes down to how you spend and save your energy. So here are some tips on how to save energy at Disney World.

Transportation

The first thing is to take advantage of Walt Disney World transportation. Disney offers express service from the airport to your resort, and once you’re there, you can get anywhere by boat, monorail, bus, and soon Skyliner gondolas. Different resorts have access to different transportation, with the priciest deluxe hotels having the best options. The great thing about the transportation, besides that it is free is that they drop you off where you are going, and you can cut down on walking.

You can drive around Disney World, too. However, depending on whether or not you particularly enjoy driving, this isn’t the best idea for saving energy. Learning to navigate and following signs in a new place while dealing with traffic can wear you down before your event get to the front gate.

Efficient Planning

It’s a lot of fun to plan your vacation, and it doesn’t need to stop at what rides you want to go on. Since we have access to park maps through My Disney Experience, we can plan out the logistics of each day in the park. If you can prevent rushing from Pirates of the Caribbean to Space Mountain, you will save yourself a run across a 142-acre park.

The Magic Kingdom isn’t even the biggest park to traverse by a long shot. The best way to save energy at Disney World parks is to map a route and take on attractions near by clusters. Make one fluid motion around the park and cut down on zipping around to prolong your energy.

Take a Day Off

If you just constantly go to the parks every day, you will tire yourself out and probably get pretty sore. The last days will be less fun, and you might end up cutting them short because you don’t have the energy anymore. The best way to combat this is to plan a day where you don’t go to any parks and just stay at your home resort. You could resort hop, too as long as you take it easy and give yourself some rest.

Schedule meal times

Many people will recommend taking a break in a day at a Disney park, even going so far as to suggest going back to your hotel room. This may be a good option if you have small kids that need a nap, but it’s not practical in most cases. However, taking a break from the crowds is a good idea, so making meal reservations for a late lunch when the crowd is at its peak is an excellent way to take yourself out of the equation and give yourself a reprieve.

Pace Yourself

It’s a good idea to keep moving at a leisurely pace. Don’t push too hard at the beginning of the day, but don’t take too many rests either. You want to have a certain amount of momentum that you can rely on. So keep in motion at a casual pace and try not to take too many rests. When you by a snack, try something that you can walk and eat with. Getting up from a shady table can be difficult to do once you sit down. As long as you don’t overexert yourself, your energy level should stay well maintained.
