In our latest Walt Disney World Trip Report for Spring 2023, we ran several real-life Disney travel tests and you may be surprised by what we found. We share our findings on when is Disney Genie+ worth buying and when should you NOT buy it? Is Disney After Hours worth the extra cost? How is mobile food ordering working against guests and are the posted ride wait times at Walt Disney World accurate?
Walt Disney World Trip Report Spring 2023
This week we tested a few key things that every Disney World traveler wants to know and we are here to offer our best tips and advice for what works and what doesn't onsite at Walt Disney World. We share our first-hand experience after testing out several options head to head.
When to Pay for Genie + and When NOT to Pay for Genie +
Do not purchase Genie+ during busy park periods.
The tried and true method that's worked for 50 years is still the best strategy today.
Why Free Late Night Extra Magic Hours are Better than Paying for Disney After Hours
Lower crowds, faster moving around the parks. Far better value.
How Mobile Order is Ruining the Guest Experience at Walt Disney World
Disney may say that mobile ordering for food is there to enhance the guest experience, the reality in the parks is the exact opposite.
If you're not mobile ordering, get to the quick service counter by 11:30 a.m.
Wait Times are Lower than Posted
