How to Convince Your Loved Ones to Go To Disney World

You want to go to Disney World, but the feeling doesn't seem to be mutual among your friends and family. What can you do to convince them to pack up their shorts and fly to Florida to socialize with a mouse and duck? There is hope!

1. Find A Travel Package That Works

First, scour the Internet and find a travel package focused on Disney World. There are countless sites available to help you with this, and you don't have to spend a penny or sacrifice your sanity. Consider how many people may go on the trip and move on from there. What is your budget? What would you like to do during your stay? Do you want to stay on park grounds or at an outside hotel? If you find something that works with everyone's finances and desires, you have a higher chance of succeeding.

2. Move Beyond Disney World

No, I don't mean you can't go to Disney World - just spread your list of activities a little. For example, you might want to rent a car and visit a local landmark for a day. If they know they don't have to spend every waking second at the World, they may cooperate with you.

3. Mold Your Schedule To Everyone's Tastes

Some people don't like rides, and some people prefer spending their time at the hotel pool. That is fine. Make a schedule before you leave for your trip and allow for people to branch off and meet with you at a later time. I find that it's great to gather for lunch or dinner at a restaurant to recoup and share stories. Cinderella's Royal Table or 50's Prime Time Cafe are excellent for these events.

4. Don't Press Your Luck!

If they say no, don't ask them again the next day. Give them time. If you need to, wait a few days or even a few weeks to bring up the subject. You'll never get them to cooperate if you push!
