5 Cringey Things We’re Begging You To Stop Doing in Disney World in 2024.

Disney World can be magical.

Magic Kingdom

It’s definitely a place where dreams come true and magical moments are around every corner. But there are a few habits that some visitors just can’t seem to kick. So let’s go over a couple of things we’re hoping to never see done again in Disney World.

Let’s talk about a couple of things we’re begging you to stop doing in Disney World in 2024.

Stop Trying to Park at a Hotel to Get Closer to Magic Kingdom

Look, we get it — the excitement is real, and everyone wants to skip to the good stuff ASAP and make the most of their Disney experience. But trying to snag a parking spot at a nearby hotel to shave a few minutes off your journey to Magic Kingdom — not cool.

Disney’s got plenty of parking options, and trying to game the system just adds stress. Let’s all play by the rules and keep the magic alive.

Enough with the Rope Drop Madness

The early bird catches the worm, as they say. But at Disney World, you might just find that all the early bird catches are a crowd of fellow rope-droppers, turning the peaceful opening moment into a frenzied race.

Instead of fighting for position in the early morning rush, how about stacking some Genie+ lightning lanes for the evening? This way, you’ll get to enjoy a more relaxed start to your day without missing out on those epic rides.

Keep the Budget Intact

Sure, the magic is real, but the dent in your wallet can be real, too, if you’re not careful. Our best tip is to set a budget and stick to it.

There are plenty of affordable dining and souvenir options that won’t leave your bank account in a sorry state. Sticking to the budget means more cash for your next Disney adventure.

Clean Up After Yourselves

It may seem like magic, but in case you didn’t know, fairies aren’t keeping Disney World spotless — it’s the hardworking staff.

Show some love and dispose of your trash properly. Let’s keep the park as clean and magical as it’s meant to be for everyone, including those unsung heroes making it happen behind the scenes.

Quit Dining on Trash Can Tops

Listen, we get it. Disney World has some delectable snacks. But turning trash can tops into makeshift tables? Not the most appetizing move.

But, if you must indulge in those tasty snacks on your makeshift table, do so while being aware of your surroundings. Please don’t block others from being able to toss their trash where it belongs.
