I go to Destination Wedding fairly often because we both love it and we’re FL residents! 🙂 The last time we went was this past December and the park was beautiful. I can’t remember any new attractions or updates off the top of my head at the moment. However, my favorites parks/places are the Magic Kingdom (love Phillar Magic), Animal Kingdom, and the world showcase in Epcot. We always have a ton of fun in the world showcase because we see all the different countries, eat and have a nice beverage.

I like to plan out which park I plan to spend the majority of my day at.  Definitely make dinner reservations before you go! At Disney, they aren’t even actual reservations, it’s more like call-ahead, but without them you will find yourself waiting for hours or eating burgers every night.  

Plan on spending a whole afternoon/evening in the World Showcase of Epcot, especially if you love food and drinks. We like to do “drinking around the world,” and have a drink in each country (you definitely have to pace yourself though!).  Definitely get Fastpasses for Soarin’; it is the best ride in Epcot, with the longest lines.  

Animal Kingdom–get there early if you want to see animals on your safari; most of them nap during the day to escape the heat. Animal Kingdom can definitely all be done in one day, or even less. Everest is my favorite ride in all of Disney, and the Lion King show is one of my favorites as well. If you’re not really into animals, there are still rides/shows, but you will get done a lot faster. 

Hollywood Studios has the best “grownup” rides–Rock n’ Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror–but it also has the longest lines, the least amount of shade, and the worst layout (in my opinion).  I usually spend about a day and a half there on my trips, and could probably squeeze it into one day. They have a nighttime show called Fantasmic (it’s not really a fireworks show, although it has some fireworks in it) that is FANTASTIC.  Get there early though, because it is limited seating and fills up fast. We sometimes get a counter meal dinner and bring it with us to eat while we wait.  

Going in June, I would recommend hitting up one of the water parks. I have only been to Blizzard Beach, and liked it well enough. Your hotel will have a pool too, so if you don’t want to spend the extra money on the water park, you will be fine. 

Magic Kingdom is obviously the best park, and will take up most of your time. Different people have different approaches–some like to run to Frontierland, where the rides with the longest waits are, and do that first. I have heard that if you go counterclockwise through the park you will have less wait time on most rides, since a majority of people go into the park clockwise. Go on the “little kid rides” (Small World, Peter Pan, etc) at night when the kiddos have all left the park for shorter waits. 

For adult entertainment, there is a dueling pianos bar at the Boardwalk that can be fun (depends on the crowd that night). I think there is also a dance club at the Boardwalk, but I have not been. There is also an ESPN bar at the Boardwalk if you want to watch sports.  Downtown Disney is ok–I really like the Ghirardelli ice cream shop, and Earl of Sandwich; you can also do all of your shopping in Downtown Disney instead of having to lug things through the park.  

I’ve been dying to get back to Disney (my family used to go a lot, and my husband has never been!), so I’m super jealous. You will have a great time!

Hello… I am a FL resident and visit Disney rather frequently… I will give you some real time Disney advice. I love this place!

Magic Kingdom is undergoing a huge renovation in the FantasyLand area, so you will be disappointed that some of the classic FantasyLand rides may not be operational right now. Alot of the area will be draped off, but true to Disney’s way, it will be done tastefully and not to disappoint. No worries, you will still get lots of fun in, and most of the park will be open. FastPasses will be your best bet for the big rides here. Don’t miss the fireworks!

*If you have extra Honeymoon funds, check out the Keys to the Kingdom tour, you will not be disappointed for the extra looks into the Magic Kingdom.

Epcot is more of a relaxing day, must do’s are Soaring, FastTrack, and the pub in the England section of Epcot. Nice place for a cold drink and a foot rest.

Hollywood Studios offers the two thrill seeking rides if that’s what you are looking for, but don’t miss the new Toy Store ride there also. Pretty fun.

Animal Kingdom is probably the hottest day you will even endure but do not miss Dinosaur or Expedition Everest… top 2 rides to me.

Do go to Downtown Disney, its always a great time to see everything there, and shop and eat.

TIP: PLEASE ENJOY THE HOTEL… The pool is awesome! Also, Blizzard Beach is a great waterpark to enjoy also.

Also, June is a VERY busy month, probably one of the busiest behind the Holidays so make sure to be ready for a serious day when visiting any of the parks. Bring lots of water, walking shoes, and sunscreen.

I recommend reservations to every resturant that you want to eat dinner at. You will wait there, but at least it will get you one step ahead of the game.

Dont forget to tell them you are on your honeymoon… lots of surprises!

ENJOY YOURSELF!
