    What is the best way to plan my trip and introduce my husband to the world of Disney!? He’s not a fan of the mask regulations, but I still want to take a trip and still make it enjoyable

    Hello Hailey! I know exactly where you’re coming from! My wife “likes” Disney, but I love it! Sometimes, I have to get creative to keep her going back year after year! And, I’m usually successful! Let me give you a few tips!

    First, think about what’s important to your husband as it relates to Disney! The Walt Disney World Resort has a hotel for every interest (and value) level. From beach to mountain theme, to sports, and music, there is a hotel of interest for everyone in the Disney Resorts Collection! Take an online tour of all the hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! I’m sure you’ll find one that he will love! If he has a particular interest area, feel free to write back to planDisney with that interest area and we’ll point you in the direction of a resort he’ll like.

    Next, think about the rides and attractions that will make him appreciate the theme parks! Is he a Star Wars fan? Did he enjoy the Toy Story movies? Or is he more of a classic admirer of Disney? Does he like thrill rides or more easy-going experiences? The four Disney Parks have themed rides from some of our favorite movies to thrilling “hold on tight” rides that will have you screaming with joy (and then wanting to do it again)! Again, let us know his interest areas and we’ll send you in the right direction.

    Regarding your husband’s aversion to mask-wearing, the rules for mask-wearing have been relaxed (a bit) more recently. Masks must be worn on all transportation, as well when indoors, except for when in a restaurant. Masks are currently optional in all outdoor settings including outdoor lines, rides, attractions, and theaters.

    And, finally, food! Does he love food? Sometimes that is the best way into every person’s Disney heart! Whether restaurants in the hotels or the theme parks, there are Disney Dining restaurants to make every stomach satisfied. They don’t all need to be “sit down” or table service either. There are excellent quick-service dining options too!

    Write us back, Hailey! We’ll help to pinpoint some areas that will help your husband appreciate (and maybe fall in love with) the Walt Disney World Resort!
