A large number of visitors to Disney Parks in the USA are from the UK, many visiting for the first time. With the help of our wonderful Disney forum members we’ve put together some essential tips to help Brits visiting the USA.
BOOKING YOUR TRIP
Don’t be scared of booking a DIY trip! Packages are easy to book but don’t necessarily provide the best value. Airlines often have sales or offers. And Disney are releasing new offers all the time, with room discounts and free dining packages that can save £££.
If you don’t want to book the hotel yourself, consider using a specialist Disney travel agency. They don’t charge anything for their service and will find you the best deals available.
The Walt Disney Travel Company UK has some great offers available, including free dining and discounts of up to 45% on Disney Resorts.
Travel insurance is absolutely essential! Just getting to see a doctor for something minor like a sore throat will cost you upwards of $200. Make sure you get a comprehensive policy with at least £2million medical cover. Check that the cancellation cover and baggage cover meet your needs too.
If you plan on visiting Universal Orlando, consider staying one or two nights in one of their hotels (Hard Rock Hotel, Portofino Bay, Royal Pacific). As a hotel guest you’ll get 2 days of queue jumping at Universal Studios / Islands of Adventure, early entry to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and can have up to four adults in a room. Plus, you won’t have to get transport there or pay for parking, transport to and from the parks is free.
