A Guest Blog From Australia. Or Why Australians Should Visit Walt Disney World

By Guest Blogger Louise Burns

UntitledI want to convince any international travelers, especially those from Australia, who are thinking of a Walt Disney World Holiday not to hesitate a moment longer and make a booking now. My adult daughter and I travelled from Australia for 10 amazing days in Walt Disney World. We chose to travel early December to take advantage of all the beautiful Christmas decorations throughout all the parks and the resorts and we were not disappointed. We put aside one day just to travel between all the resorts to see the magnificent Christmas Trees, gingerbread houses and chocolate themed displays and it was just so beautiful.Please don’t be concerned by the long haul travel involved. We flew direct to LAX and then very easily walked the short distance to the Delta terminal for the connecting direct flight to Orlando. Again, easily managed to find our way through the Orlando airport and found Disney’s Magical Express transportation for an enjoyable ride to the Caribbean Beach Resort. Check in was easy and our magic bands were waiting for us. Navigating the transportation system between the parks and other resorts was easy to follow as the signs and notice boards are positioned everywhere and are so helpful. Touring the parks was really as magical as everyone says, and we had no issues booking fast passes and dining reservations through the Walt Disney World website from the comfort of our home in Australia.
I know as Aussies, we have concerns about air travel, tipping, food servings and crowds, but once you are immersed in Disney, none of these issues matter. You just get swept up in all that is Disney and you can’t help but just have the time of your life. My number one tip though is to plan, which is half the fun, and use the all the amazing information and helpful tips that TMSM offer to plan your holiday. However, in true Aussie style, just go with the flow and don’t worry about unavailable dining reservations, or missed fast passes, just try something else. There is plenty to see, do and eat and I guarantee that you will enjoy every minute of every day you are in Walt Disney World.
Regard, Louise Burns
