What You Need to Know, Before You Go

Before you head down to visit the number one vacation destination on the planet, there are a number of things you might want to take into consideration.

Did you get the best deal for your dollar?

Magical Tours has been giving private tours of the Orlando theme parks for over 10 years, and we are certified by both the Walt Disney Travel Company and Universal Parks and Resorts as a Vacation Planning Specialist.  As such, we have direct access to Disney and Universal’s reservation systems, allowing us to book their vacation packages for you at their absolute lowest published rates!

On top of that, we also offer our services as vacation planners, helping you with booking dining reservations, FastPasses, and setting up itineraries at absolutely no cost to you when you book your vacation package through us.

Do you have everything you need?

It’s easy to forget something when you are packing for a vacation.  To help you out a bit, we have a handy vacation packing checklist you can download here (PDF).

One thing we get asked a lot by folks is if they should bring specific items, or if they can buy them at the parks once they get there.  Of course, a lot of items can be purchased at Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando, but usually for a much higher price than if you bought them in advance.

Below you will find many items we have found to be very helpful to have on hand.  From Disney and Universal staples, to vacation necessities, to… well… just really cool things to have in the parks!

Disney Staples

Here are all the staple items folks visiting Walt Disney World feel they must have. While you can buy many of these items at the parks, the truth of the matter is that they are usually marked up a lot… so why not buy them in advance for a fraction of the price?

Universal Staples

Here are all the must have staples of the Universal Orlando theme parks.   Just as with Disney, you can buy any of these items at the parks but they are usually marked up a lot more than the deals we have found here.

Theme Park Helps

Having the right items on hand while in the theme parks can mean the difference between a fantasy come true, and a true nightmare.  Below are a handful of items we have found to be particularly helpful for families during our tours in the theme parks.
