6 Can't-Miss Experiences for Your Trip to Disney World

It's safe to say that if you've got kids, you'll find yourself planning a vacation involving a visit to Disney World at some point. And because this resort is so popular with adults as well, it's not only families who need tips on what to do and see when they're exploring this world-famous destination.

With that in mind, here is a selection of sensational attractions available at this renowned theme park which will help you organize your visit.

Character meet-and-greets

Getting to meet the real-life representations of iconic Disney characters is a dream come true for little ones, and also a lot of fun for grown-ups who want a photo op that's ideal for social sharing.

You could just hope to encounter characters spontaneously in the park, but arranging unforgettable meet-and-greets is a good move if you want to avoid disappointment, and there are Disney character meet-and-greets scheduled throughout the day and clearly advertised when you arrive.

There are even occasional character dining experiences, which let you enjoy a meal as well as getting to see performers interacting with you and the other guests to spice things up and keep kids entertained, so look out for these events as well.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

A relatively recent addition to the Disney's Hollywood Studios section of the resort, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a must-see spectacle that includes two distinct rides as well as all sorts of other aspects for fans of this all-conquering space opera franchise.

The pick of the bunch is perhaps Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which puts you inside the cockpit of Han Solo's ship and takes you on a jaw-dropping mission that has interactive elements, so is much more than just a passive experience.

There are also workshops for building lightsabers and droids, a cantina with intergalactic grub to eat, and much more besides.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

An innovative, complex roller coaster which is found at Epcot on the Disney World campus, Cosmic Rewind is of course inspired by the Guardians of the Galaxy series of movies which have captured the imaginations of millions.

The most notable feature of this experience is that it launches in reverse, and can rotate a full 360 degrees, meaning that there's no other ride at the resort that's quite like it. It demonstrates just how far theme park technology has come, and has received critical acclaim as a result.

Stroll down Disney's BoardWalk

From the modern and space-age to the historic and old-school, a visit to BoardWalk will be like a trip back to a bygone era thanks to everything from the style of the architecture to the entertainment and dining options that are available.

This is a great place to visit in the evening, thanks to its restaurants and bars, while its waterfront location is appealing at any time of the day, and aims to remind visitors of Atlantic City. There are even places to eat, drink and be merry long after the kids have gone to sleep, so for adults who are experiencing Disney World, this is the nightlife hotspot.

Typhoon Lagoon water park

Pack your swimsuit and dive into Typhoon Lagoon, a water park which is on the scale you'd expect from a Disney' resort.

There's a surf pool that can create splash-tastic waves up to 6 feet high, a series of flumes that provide a wet and wild ride, a creek which is perfect as a playground for younger children, and a white water rafting experience to cap it all off.

Then when the sun sets, experience the atmosphere of the water park at night when the H20 Glow party aimed at adults kicks off.

Pandora - The World of Avatar

Last but not least, if you visit the Animal Kingdom theme park, you have to check out this entire area which is dedicated to recreating the idyllic planet of Pandora from the record-setting blockbuster Avatar.

From bioluminescent effects to three dimensional flight simulators and an animatronic and hologram-filled river ride, The World of Avatar offers ample variety.

All that remains is for you to pick and choose from attractions that suit your preferences, and Disney World will definitely exceed expectations even if you've visited before.
