Walt Disney World spans for 25,000 acres which is roughly the size of San Francisco. With so much available, the Most Magical Place on Earth may seem more like the Most Overwhelming Place on Earth. But no worries. This list highlights the best and most essential experiences to have at Walt Disney World so you can enjoy your vacation to its fullest.

Essential Experiences to Have at Walt Disney World

1. Hop Around On the Skyliner

Walt Disney World has always traveled high in the sky with the monorail, but now there is a new opportunity to get you around the property. The Skyliner is reminiscent of the old Skyway ride at the Magic Kingdom but travels between many hotels, Epcot, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This fast, tree-top terraced ride offers a 360-degree view of Walt Disney World and will become your next favourite mode of transportation.

2. Drink Around the World

Drinking at Disney World may seem like an unexpected adventure, but at Epcot, there are so many spirits and libations to try. Start out at the Mexico Pavilion for a cool margarita before heading to the Italy Pavilion for some Limoncello and the Japan Pavilion for some sake.

End at the Rose and Crown Pub in the UK Pavilion for a pint of beer. There are so many kinds to try, and during the festival seasons–like Flower and Garden Festival in the spring and Food and Wine in the fall–there are plenty to fit the season.
