Lots more to consider though, some of which I cover in more detail here:

What would Ratatouille coming to EPCOT mean?

As many are speculating based on permits just filed by Disney, the France pavilion in EPCOT could be getting a big new (well, clone-new) addition soon! The talk in the town is that we might see a trackless Ratatouille ride – just like what they have in Disneyland Paris – making its way in Orlando.

Picking the priorities for your trip

One of the biggest dilemmas of any Walt Disney World trip is figuring out what you want to do. There are so many options to consider for your trip, including 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, Disney Springs, hundreds of restaurants and attractions, shows, tours, and more. With all of these options, and the understanding that you can’t possibly see and do everything in one trip (even a 7-day trip) here are some tips to figure out what to include in your itinerary.
