4 Reasons You Should NEVER EVER Visit Disney World 

Sharing is caring!

Listen closely because I am finally ready to share my thoughts on why you should NEVER EVER visit Disney World. Yes, you heard me right, I am saying STAY AWAY from the happiest place on Earth.

People ask me why my family and I visit Disney World so often and sometimes I feel like sarcastically answering that question with “because its such an awful place,” but I don’t. Instead I go on and on and on sharing about all of the magical moments, memories and experiences Disney World has provided for myself, my family and friends.

Whether you are on a budget, celebrating a birthday or visiting for a long weekend getaway, there are 4 huge reasons why you should NEVER EVER visit Disney World.

Is Disney really worth it?

I hear this question of is Disney really worth it pretty frequently, especially due to it being a fairly pricey family vacation, unless you use some of these budget friendly Disney travel tips

What I recommend is making sure you take the time to plan out your trip before you go, because the cost can fluctuate depending on the time of year you are visiting.

Learn about the best times to visit the Disney Parks, especially so you can miss the most crowded times.

Also, make sure you have some travel apps downloaded your phone to make your trip easier.

This way you will hopefully get to experience all of the rides, attractions, food and more that make up lots of the magic of Disney.

This free list which breaks down everything in Disney World by park is a huge help when it comes to planning out your days there.

4 Reasons to NEVER EVER Visit Disney World

1. Disney will instantly make you feel like a kid all over again.

If you were anything like me while growing up, you probably often complained that you couldn’t wait to be an adult.

Please don’t attempt to visit the Disney Parks or even Disney Springs if you don’t want to be reminded of what it’s like to be carefree or feel like a kid again. It doesn’t matter how old you are, Disney’s magic has the power to touch all ages. 

You should see my excitement (even though I will be 40 next year) whenever I see certain characters, especially Alice in Wonderland, like at these Disney World meet and greets

Disney transports you through various times in history, movies, lands and unique attractions that sometimes it’s hard to contain yourself and not want to be a dreamer forever, even for my teen and his friends.

2. You will want to eat all the things. 

The Disney Parks are constantly stepping up their food game and tempting your taste buds with its variety and ridiculous amounts of mouth-watering foods, drinks, sweet treats, crazy concoctions and so much more! 

They even have delicious allergy friendly and gluten free food options

I promise that any diet you may have had prior to your visit will be completely out the window while at Disney World, so just enjoy yourself and don’t be afraid to indulge.

3. Be prepared for your face to hurt. 

You are probably thinking what in the world, didn’t she mean to write your feet will hurt from walking around all the parks.

Nope, I meant face, from all the laughter and joy you will experience through Disney World. 

No one likes pain, even if it is from smiling and laughing so hard all day thanks to all of the amazing rides, shows, parades and characters to hang out with.

4. You might experience withdrawal symptoms.

The final and most important reason why you should NEVER EVER visit Disney World is because the withdrawal symptoms you will inevitably experience once you have to leave all of the magic Disney has to offer behind can definitely leave you feeling a bit emotional. 

Each trip, Disney Cruise and Disney Adventure is almost too difficult to bear (insert my tears each and every time I leave Disney) after its over.

What Should You NOT Do at Disney?

I hope after reading this you understand the seriousness behind what you should not do at Disney, and why you need to try your hardest to avoid it at all costs.

To quickly recap for you, you should NEVER EVER visit Disney World because it will only make you feel childish (damn Peter Pan syndrome), full from too many snacks, your face will hurt from laughing and smiling, and you could experience withdrawal symptoms from the many magical moments.

So please, if you must go to Disney World, especially as often as my family and I like to go, be aware that the magic of Disney will truly suck you in and captivate you from the moment you take a trip down Main St. USA.

Know that it is completely normal for you to even shed a tear when you see the Walt and Mickey statue, and that Cinderella’s castle just might take your breath away for a second.

To hold you over until your next trip (or first), watch all the Disney Plus you can, and pick up one (or a few) of these gifts for Disney lovers

Enjoy and savor each and every magical moment.
