Planning a Disney vacation? While there are many guidebooks, don’t underestimate YouTube.
YouTube? How could this collection of videos help plan a Disney vacation? Well, the answer is in the question. YouTube’s collection of videos contains many dedicated to resorts, attractions, and experiences at various Disney parks around the world.
When we planned our very first Disney vacation, I reserved the Disney Sing-A-Long videos on Netflix. The boy was 4 and the videos gave him some visuals of what to see in the parks. It worked for us. . . at the time.
Then, as he grew older and was curious about attractions we had yet to experience, searching for videos on YouTube was our next source of information.
Now, he does the searching on his own. Regularly we hear about various character meet and greets found at Disney parks. We are invited to watch the small screen with highlights of Disney attractions or experiences.
Lately, the boy has been “watching” more Disneyland experiences than Walt Disney World and has “upped” his persuasive tactics in regards to a Disneyland trip. In essence, he has turned the tables on us using the same tool—YouTube!
