    Just wondering is it possible to get paper maps of the parks prior to our visit.

    Hiya Kayla,

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m Ashley, and I’m thrilled to be a part of your Walt Disney World Resort planning journey. November is a great time to visit Walt Disney World. I love the weather during that time of year, and one of my favorite Holiday After Hours events begins. Although it has had a few different names since I’ve first attended, the yuletide-themed after-hours special event at Magic Kingdom Park is always a must, in my opinion. The holiday cheer is infectious, and you can’t beat snow on Main Street, U.S.A. You won’t want to miss it! I’d highly suggest purchasing tickets when the tickets are released for this event this year.

    Walt Disney World Resort is committed to reducing waste and investing in more sustainable practices. As a result, Walt Disney World Resort does not currently send paper maps to Guests. Suppose you want to get a jump on planning your steps through the four Theme Parks. In that case, Walt Disney World does offer digital versions of the Theme Park maps you would find near the front entrances (EPCOT, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park). I like to download the maps and then have them printed in a larger size at my local printing and copy shop. This way, I can have as many copies as I like to plan with. It is nice to let everyone in my trip party have their own little map to mark out their must-dos and must-sees and then compare them all to decide on the best paths to navigate the park. As an added tip, you can take the giant “dream-list” you and your family make and add it to Disney’s Genie. Genie will then work a little magic and help you plan an itinerary and provide additional suggestions you may not have thought of yet. You will be able to use your time more efficiently and have a memorable trip you will be talking about for years to come.

    A final option for you is to purchase an actual park from an online resale shop. Often Guests will sell the paper maps from Walt Disney World Theme Parks online for other Guests like yourself to purchase. The prices and quality of the maps are variable, which is why it is not my first recommendation, but it could fit your needs like Cinderella’s glass slipper.

    Happy Planning, and let me know how else I can help you plan for November,

    Ashley F.
