9 Simple Tips Convince Husband to Go to Disney World

How to Convince Husband to Go to Disney World with Couple at Disney

1 – Be Good at Compromising

Universal Orlando, Busch Gardens and Disney World have all types of tours for you to do that can make both you and your spouse happy.

Here are Some Popular Tours at Disney World

  • Backstage Magic
  • Epcot Dive Quest
  • Keys to the Kingdom
  • Savor the Savannah

2 – Have Set Expectations

You need to know the type of person you’re going with and set expectations before you get there so that you both are not disappointed.

Going over what you both plan on getting out of a trip to Walt Disney World will prevent any possible arguments. Especially, if you both are expecting two totally different trips.

3 – Plan Out Your Day

Let your spouse know that you’re going to go at the park for a certain number of hours and what you plan on doing. This will let them know that you will not be at the park all day.

Hipster Power Tip: Be sure to include your partner in your Disney planning. It will let them feel a part of the vacation and make them just as excited for it too!

4 – Have a Purpose for Your Trip

So, if the Epcot Food and Wine Eestival is not going on during your visit, go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and do 10 snacks under $15 challenge or something like that.

5 – Include Things that Your Spouse Likes

If your spouse is into snacking and tasting different dishes while on vacation, then make sure that there’s food involved in the trip.

6 – Add More Adult-friendly Activities

Mix up your Disney vacation by adding more adult things.

If they’re into sports like golf, golfing or anything like that, find something within a resort like Disney that will accommodate them on a day.

7 – Experience the Best Attractions and Rides

Do your research ahead of your trip in order to make sure you’re able to enjoy some the best rides offered by the theme park.

8 – Book FastPasses

If you’re going to Walt Disney World, then you must have your best FastPass+ reservations booked ahead of time.

Best rides to use FastPass for with Cinderella Castle.

This will take the pressure off of what you need to do with your spouse and it will let them get an idea of what type of day you will have.

Hipster Power Tip: Take advantage of Disney Mobile Ordering Service to get your food faster while on your vacation. This will make your spouse happy!

9 – Have Disney Solo Time Planned

Another tip that I have is that while you may be trying to do and see everything at Disney, one of the things you could do is to have your husband go on a little excursion or tour that’s catered just for them.

You’ll then spend your time over at one of the Disney theme parks for your own solo trip.

Show Your Disney Side Even When You Are Home

If you’re not able to convince your husband to come to Disney as often as you’d like, then you can create your own Disney Side at home.

You can make it a very dapper Hollywood Tower Hotel theme or even a Disney trivia game night complete with Mouse Ears.

The great thing about showing your #DisneySide at home is the absolute freedom to explore just how deep your imagination can go.

Final Thoughts on Convincing Husband to Go to Disney

I’m so happy that you got to come in our living room and listen to our conversation. You’ve got to learn a little bit about me and you also got to learn a little bit about my husband and our ways of how we conquer the parks together.

Where are all disney parks located with castle, epcot ball, hollywood tower hotel, and tree of life at animal kingdom.

Remember when you are trying to convince someone, just try to make sure that your itinerary and their itinerary can kind of come together.

Try not to overwhelm your spouse with too many things at once that may cause them to not want to go to Walt Disney World again.

Choosing the perfect activities that will make you both happy is one of the best ways to convert your husband into a Disney fan.

Theme parks do have something for everybody, whether it’s food, tours, golfing, something sports related, or a high thrill filled trip, just remember to always have a plan.
