Minnie Tips Monday

Mini Walt Disney World Vacation Tips

I wanted to used the word Minnie with a little play on words - Minnie meaning Mini ;-) 

On our last trip to WDW - we stayed at the Beach Clubs Villas - located in the Epcot Resort Area. I wanted to share a quick version of what I learned on this last trip.

Tip 1:
- Try and stay at a DVC (Disney Vacation Club not just for members) -- resort it gives a lot more options for saving money.

  • You have your own kitchen and washer/dryer  in the 1/2/3 bedroom rooms. So even if you wanted to just cook breakfast and keep snacks - you can save money. 
  • At the Beach Club resort you have many dining options because, you are near to 4 other beautiful resorts for eating out. I recommended the Pizza on the Boardwalk (next to Cat Cora's restaurant Kouzzina)- by far best value for a family - instead of a restaurant which can be pricey. 
  • Some of the other resorts to check out for entertainment and food are Yacht Club right next door, they are connected so if it's raining you don't have to even go outside. The Boardwalk right across - you can take the boat too it and The Swan and Dolphin Resorts which are just great to visit and see how magnificent inside they are. 

Beach Club Villas 
Tip 2 - 
For some great Ice Cream visit The Fountain - located on the bottom floor of The Dolphin resort.

The Fountain also has :
Crisp salads, custom grilled burgers, and a delectable array of sandwiches and desserts. Take away homemade or soft serve ice cream. Open for lunch and dinner. DOLPHIN

Tip 3 - 

If you want to skip the crowds at the parks - my family and I try and take one day to just enjoy the resort and the pool. This resort has one of the best, called Stormalong Bay - it has many areas to play/swim in, a lazy river, a pirate slide and a place to get some quick grub.

Thanks for stopping by. Do you have any tips to share from your last WDW Vacation? Love to hear them in the Comments --->
