December is the best time to travel to Disney. There are fewer people but more performances and activities, some of which are paid, but worth it. Most importantly, the castle changes colors and is draped in lights! For grown up kids, age 18+, you may feel left out or too good for everything so bring a friend so you can properly enjoy your childhood memories. If you like going on rides, allocate at least 2 days here, otherwise, 1 day or less should do. That park itself is split up into many sections, similar to Kingdom Hearts for those of you who remember that game. There are towns based on the different Disney movies with characters, buildings, and rides that fit into their respective themes. Remember that Disney World is much bigger than your average amusement park, even Six Flags. Walking through it takes a few hours and even then you might have to backtrack to find certain rides and activities or just to see everything. There is no one path to take but rather an exponential level of pathways. Most people who are not driving will take a monorail into the park which passes by a huge lake with lakeside resorts. Once past the ticketing offices, you will walk through a street similar to a small town. The town has the amenities that many small towns offer, small shops, restaurants, and more. A street cable car, like those in San Francisco, passes by with a show every so often. Next, you will encounter Cinderella Castle at the center of the park. At certain times, musical shows occur around the castle and on the stage of the castle. Be sure to check your schedule for shows and map for directions. Again, most of the rides are geared towards children so there are no roller coasters and rides for those who are slightly older in Magic Kingdom.
