- It’s impossible to take a bad photo at Disney World
According to rumours, all castles are designed to face south so the sun can never ruin your photo.
Whether you go at golden hour or early hours of the morning, you don’t have to be a professional to get the perfect photo.
- Can you find all the hidden Mickeys?
There are rumoured to be over 1000 Mickeys hidden throughout the entire Disney World – including in the parks and hotels.
If you’re looking for a fun challenge or simply love a treasure hunt like Captain Hook, it can be a great game for you and your family to locate as many as possible.
Nobody truly knows how many hidden Mickeys there are as there is no official list and new Mickeys are added all the time as new attractions and sites are built.

We all know that queuing can be a bit tedious but the rides at Walt Disney World have some incredible theming and the queue is no exception so look out for interactive elements to keep you entertained.
Whilst you’re in line for the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, look out for a rope and a sign which says “Do NOT pull”.
