Making the Most of Your Non-Park Day at Disney World: A Travel Agent's Guide

Making the Most of Your Non-Park Day at Disney World: A Travel Agent's Guide

Welcome to the magical world of Disney! As a travel agent, your job is to create unforgettable experiences for your clients, and what better place to gather inspiration and content than at Disney World? Even on a day dedicated to work, you can still immerse yourself in the magic of the resort while maximizing your productivity.

Quick Tip: Make sure you have outlined your goals BEFORE you travel. You can't gather content tailored to your goals if you haven't made them yet. Don't just start recording willy-nilly, trust me, that just leads to frustration later. You don't want to waste time with work when you're trying to vacation. Make a plan and gather content you can actually use so you don't have to worry about it the rest of your trip.

Here are five activities to help you make the most of your non-park day at Disney World while focusing on gathering usable content and learning more about the resort.

  1. Resort Hop: Explore Disney's Diverse Accommodations

Take advantage of your non-park day to embark on a resort-hopping adventure and discover the unique offerings of Disney's various accommodations. From the grandeur of Disney's Riviera Resort to the whimsy of Disney's Art of Animation Resort, each property has its own distinct theme and charm.

As you explore different resorts, focus on capturing high-quality photos and videos of key features, amenities, and themed areas. Pay attention to the details that set each resort apart, from immersive decor to signature dining options. This content will not only showcase the variety of accommodations available at Disney World but also provide valuable insights for your clients when planning their own magical vacations.

Don't know how to get around property? No worries, just hop on a bus from your resort and either head to a park or Disney Springs. From there, hop the bus to your destination! (Don't try to drive to other resorts unless you have a dining reservation there, they won't let you park there)

  1. Try a New Restaurant: Sample Disney's Culinary Delights

Treat your taste buds to a culinary adventure by trying out a new restaurant at Disney World. With a plethora of dining options ranging from casual eateries to fine dining establishments, there's something to satisfy every craving and palate.

  1. Ride and Time Transportation: Experience Disney's Unique Modes of Travel

Highlight key features, routes, and benefits of each mode of travel, providing valuable information for your clients on navigating the resort with ease.

Note transportation times with your clients future reservations in mind. What time do they need to leave their resort to get to their lunch reservation at Disney's Grand Floridian?
