Luxury Essentials For Any Walt Disney World® Vacation

Author: Cara Goldsbury | Comments: 0 | Categories: WALT DISNEY WORLD®

Disney offers marvelous gifts, pleasant surprises, and lasting memories. Here are just a few things that are absolute on my list, adding a sparkle to an already fantastic vacation.

Disney's Contemporary Resort and monorail image

Stay at a Disney Resort
You must stay at a Disney resort if you truly want to immerse yourself in the magic. Imagine yourself in your room at a Magic Kingdom® hotel where there’s that whistle of the Walt Disney World Railroad, the Castle sparkling in the distance, moonlight shimmering on the Seven Seas Lagoon. Pure enchantment!

Experience a Culinary Feast
Don’t miss Victoria & Albert’s Chef’s Table at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort where chef Scott Hunnell prepares a feast just for you. Your table is located in an alcove in the restaurant’s kitchen where up to thirteen courses are served over four hours while the kitchen staff bustles around you. If you’re smart you’ll choose the wine pairings with each course coupled by a specially chosen vintage.

Go For a Spin on Disney’s Most Iconic Attraction.
Forget that you are way too old for such silliness, it’s an absolute must to get in line with the kiddies and take a spin on Dumbo the Flying Elephant® at Magic Kingdom Park. No arguing. Just do it!

Wishes Magic Kingdom image

Relish the Sight of the Magic Kingdom Fireworks.
Whether from inside the park, your balcony at a Magic Kingdom Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s beach, a fireworks cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon, or California Grill, don’t miss this spectacular show. It embodies the essence of Disney and can seal the deal for one enchanting vacation.

Amble Through Epcot®’s World Showcase After Dark.
Twinkling lights, the ambience of an exotic location, the moon over the Eiffel Tower, all this charm along with a nice of glass of wine in hand. Need I say more?

Senses Spa Grand Floridian image

Rejuvinate With a Soothing Massage at Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.
You’ll definitely need a pick-me-up after days of walking the parks so go ahead and plan for a massage about four days into your vacation. You’ll be thanking me for the advice.

Disney's California Grill martini image

Drink a Toast in California Grill’s Lounge.
At the end of a long day of touring spend at least one evening here to toast a perfect day. After the last dinner guests have been seated and fireworks are over it’s a breeze to nab a perfect spot in front of the lounge’s massive picture windows and kick back with a shaken martini or a glass of wine from the best list around, all overlooking Disney’s most sublime view.

Now, what do you think is an absolute requirement? Would love to hear the experiences that make all of your Disney vacations magical!
