Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
So you want to plan a trip to Disney but you have a "Grumpy" in your group. Someone who isn't exactly feeling the magic, so to speak. What to do? The first thing is to figure out what Grumpy is afraid of. Are they worried that parks will be too crowded? Worried about standing in line? Do they prefer a relaxing golf vacation? Finding out what their concerns are can help the planner to be sure that everyone's needs are met. Because Disney is not just for kids!
Once you've narrowed down their concerns, information is power! Many people simply are unaware of the plethora of options available at Disney. (Walt Disney World in particular.) There is a reason it is call the Walt Disney World Resort – because it's not just theme parks! Recreational and relaxining activities abound. It's critical to include something for everyone. If getting to play 18-holes on a PGA-course is going to keep Dad happy through multiple rides on Dumbo, it's a small price to pay! Same goes for Mom or Grandma or Aunt Sue or whomever is feeling less-than-pixie-dusted. Find what floats their boat and make sure to include it in your plans.
If you don't have a copy of PassPorter Walt Disney World (or another equally fabulous guide book) – get one! You would not believe how many times I have heard clients say, "I bought a copy of PassPorter and now my husband, who didn't even WANT TO GO, won't put it down!" Again, information is power…
More next week but in the meantime, if you would like to hear more from me on this topic, instead of just reading, you can listen to this week's episode of the PassPorter Moms Podcast, on this very topic!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
