How to do Disney World with Disney Haters

How to plan a Disney Vacation with people that don’t like Disney

You are heading to Walt Disney World for a family vacation, but you have family or friends that don’t like Walt Disney World.  What do you do?  On this weeks Mouse Chat Podcast we talk about how to do Walt Disney World with “Disney Haters”.

Disney World Vacation Planning Advice


We have some experience in this areas.  Lauren’s husband is not a fan of Walt Disney World and Chris’ sister in law could live without taking a trip to Walt Disney World too.  So how do you share your love for Walt Disney World with family and friends that don’t want anything to do with a Disney vacation?

We have a quick BONUS MOUSE CHAT 15 minute Mouse Chat show to help guide your Disney World Vacation planning.

Planning a Disney World Vacations with others who don’t share your level of Disney magic

How to share your love of Disney with others:

  1. Plan activities at Walt Disney World that tie into your friends hobbies or interests.  You don’t have to spend 12 hours in a Walt Disney World Park to have a Disney World vacation.  If your friend is not into Disney World, there are plenty of fun activities to do.  Disney World has award winning golf courses, or even mini golf if they are so inclined.  Disney World has Fishing on Bay Lake, horse back riding at Ft. Wilderness, parasailing, and so many activities.
  2. Include the person in the planning so they can plan part of the Disney World Vacation.  This will get them involved and excited about the trip.
  3. Relax and take a Spa Day.  Disney World has some very nice spas at their resorts.  Take a Spa Day at Disney’s Grand Floridian Beach Resort Spa.  Enjoy the luxury and nice extras Disney World four diamond resorts have to offer.  Plan a Walt Disney World Resort day or two and enjoy one of the many fine dining restaurants on property.
  4. Go outside of Walt Disney World and have a nice meal at Celebration Florida just minutes away from Walt Disney World, or explore the real Florida and Orlando, like Bok Tower Gardens.

  1. I just have to tell you folks…. I LOVE your intro music…it makes me feel like I’m walking down Main Street! I’m a LONG time listener…love your podcast and I love Disney…I’ve been a Disney-goer since I was a young child and I’m almost 40! My kids of course love it and I converted my hubby! The hubs and I even left our 4 kids (17,16,13 &11) at home while we escaped to Disney for 5 days!!! (We are so evil I know! We will help pay for their therapy later! Or not..cause we’re gonna use the money to got to DISNEY!!! bwhhahah!)
    Thanks for all your awesome podcasts and “snarky” personalities! 🙂

    Cheers from Utah!
