We are traveling the week of June 5th to June 12th 2011 to Disney World and celebrating our honeymoon. do you have any tips. We are also wondering if we are crazy to be going that week, or if it should be bearable?
Dad’s good week to go Answer
Congratulations on a June Honeymoon at Disney World. You’ll have a ball. I can remember over 30 years ago, the first week of June, when Mrs. Mom and I spent our first days together at Disney World. Of course it was just the Magic Kingdom then but it was still a great place to honeymoon.
I need to figure these tips out, The Princess and her Prince are going in September, so Dad needs to figure out what to tell the new Prince.
First and foremost, when you get to the first park, go to Guest Services and get a just married button. (I’d go all the way and get the bride and groom hats.) The hats get a little bulky (but they make great memory items) but when you wear the buttons or the hats, especially the hats, Disney Cast Members will give you special attention your whole trip. Desserts will magically appear, you might get a special Fastpass or 2. You never know, you might even end up sleeping in the castle.
One caution, Gay Days end on Sunday the 5th. I would avoid EPCOT that day. (First day you need to go to the Magic Kingdom anyway.)
I know it goes against all honeymoon stuff, but get to the parks early. You can always slip out in the afternoon for some, in the immortal words of one of my favorite songs ever, “afternoon delight”. I have no idea personally what their talking about, but the song have wonderful harmonies.
Dad’s Bottom Line
June is a great time for a honeymoon at Disney World. In fact just about any time is. Make sure you take lots of pictures and slow down and enjoy the beauty of the parks and the hotels.
