Today, I have a list of 10 things most first-time visitors to Disney World don’t know before their trips, including some info to help explain each of these things.
I also have a quick tip about how to know when to book the flights for your trip, especially since prices have gone up the last couple of years so it’s hard to know when you’re getting a good deal.
These are notes from this episode. There’s much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.
