Welcome to another Tip Tuesday!
One of the most frequent bits of advice I give to people visiting Walt Disney World for the first time is this: take your time and slow down.
All too often we fall into the trap of rushing from one attraction to another and don't stop to enjoy some of those little details along the way.
Those Disney details can be found in many places including the various shops located all throughout Walt Disney World.
While browsing in a shop, especially in Epcot's World Showcase, you will discover many aspects of the host country. For instance, in the Venetian masks store in the Italy pavilion, you will discover some of the masks that are a key part of Italian culture. Just step up to the cast member and you'll hear all about the history of Venetian masks and their significance in Italian culture.
Stroll over to the the German pavilion to learn more about German glass ornaments and to discover the legend of the pickle. Do you have a pickle in your Christmas tree?
These are just a few examples of why Walt Disney World is so much more than just attractions.
It's all about exploration and discovery.
So take your time, explore the different shops and exhibits and discover more about our world.
