Does Disney World ever close?

Sometimes people are surprised to hear that Disney World is open on all major holidays. Christmas. New Years. Easter. You name a holiday and Disney World is open and ready to receive guests. But surely they can't be open ALL the time, right? So, does Disney World ever close? The answer is - sometimes but it is very rare indeed!

If I want to take a break, how long should I plan for?

Disney World requires miles and miles of walking and oftentimes, unless you are visiting during the 2 weeks of the year when it isn't hot at least part of the day, you'll be doing a lot of that walking in the sun. Lots of walking + heat means that even if you've outgrown taking a nap you may find yourself really wanting (and needing) one at Disney World. But, if you want to escape the parks for a break just how long should you plan for?

There is rain in the forecast for every day of our trip. Help!

As winter starts to creep into spring and then into summer, this question pops up more and more. If you come from someplace where there isn't a lot of rain or daily rain showers aren't a thing, then you might be panicking a bit if you see a forecast with lots of thunder clouds. Vacations are expensive and Disney vacations can really add up. If you are spending all that money you may worry that your trip is a washout. BUT - it doesn't have to be and in all likelihood it WON'T be.

What happens if a ride breaks down before I can use my FastPass+?

Picture it: You've been planning your magical Disney World vacation for nearly a year. You spent hours plotting out your touring plans and then, at exactly 60 days from when you checked in, you were up before the sun scoring the PERFECT times for your FastPass+ reservations. On the big day you head into the parks and just as you approach one of the rides to scan your MagicBand you realize that the lines aren't moving. In fact - they aren't even letting people into the lines at all. Is all that planning wasted? What happens if a ride breaks down before you get the chance to use your FastPass+?
