Amazing Disney World Vacation Traditions

Tradition is defined on as “an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior”. This is 100% a topic that can be shared through a vacation to Disney World!


  • Night Blossom @ Pandora: The World of Avatar
  • Dole Whip in Adventureland @ Magic Kingdom
  • Pretzel in a new land or new style (like the Simba Pretzel in Animal Kingdom)



As you may know, I worked at Walt Disney World back in 2007/2008. This means that there’s a list of things that just have to happen during our trip (for nostalgia’s sake)

  • Visit my signature in my old workplace
  • Try to lunch with as many friends and co-workers as possible
  • Annoy Jill with many stories


  • Window Shop @ Sprinkles and Amorette’s
  • Walk between Hollywood Studios and EPCOT
  • Get hungry in EPCOT (around the China Pavilion) and try to make it (unsuccessfully usually) to the France Pavilion.
  • Always pack a swimsuit and NEVER use it!

  • Lunch @ Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom
  • Victoria & Alberts @ Grand Floridian


  • A new puzzle (usually from the Toy Store at Disney Springs or The Emporium)
  • Something from the Art of Disney

Final Thoughts

I absolutely love planning trips to Walt Disney World, and with all the flexibility and repeatability that comes form the vacation kingdom…there’s always something soothing about having traditions.
