If you’ve never been to Walt Disney World before, you’ve probably asked yourself at some point, “Is a Disney vacation right for me?” And the truth is, it’s impossible to know for sure.
A Disney vacation can be the most relaxing thing in the world for some people, but for others, it can be an expensive and saccharine hellscape designed to deprive them of their sanity. The struggle with Disney is that it’s often hard to know what kind of person you are without making the trip yourself.
Today, we’ll try to solve that problem.
Below, you’ll find 10 questions, each with a yes or no answer. If you’re unsure of whether or not a trip to the Disney Parks is right for you, read these 10 questions and jot down your answers. Then, at the end, we’ll help you tally them up to decide whether you should book that trip or close the Disney.com tab.
Let’s get to it:
Do I enjoy scheduling things?
For many, planning a Disney trip is as much fun — if not more fun — than even the vacation itself. The greatest joy for these people is nailing the earliest FastPass+ time or the perfect dining reservation.
Even once you’ve arrived, there’s ample opportunity to put together touring plans and even alter things on the fly. Planners love Disney.
Am I able to relax when my plans go awry?
But just as important is being able to stay composed when the plans don’t work out.
For example: Some people arrive at the airport, learn that their flight is delayed, and grab a cup of coffee and a magazine to pass the time. Others arrive at the airport, learn that their flight is delayed, and launch into a whirlwind of heated phone calls and angry tweets.
Things will go wrong on your Disney trip, and how you handle those things going wrong can make or break the vacation.
