How YouTube Can Help YOU Make The Most of Your Disney Vacation!
Whether you're gearing up for your first Disney vacation, or you're a Disney parks pro trying to stay up-to-date on the ever-changing Disney news, the Disney YouTube universe is chock-full of amazing content creators to help you out! From tips and tricks to park vlogs and food reviews, these Disney enthusiasts are sure to help you feel a little less overwhelmed and a whole lot more excited!
YouTube videos are a great way to prepare for your trip! I always find myself sending videos to my clients prior to their trips. These often include video tours of their resort (or several resorts if they are still trying to decide!) and videos on how to best utilize the Disney Dining Plan! Even if you've been to the parks before, these videos are a great way to immerse yourself back into the "Disney bubble" and stay current on all the recent park and resort happenings!
Here are some of the best Disney YouTube channels you should be following NOW!
With almost a million, yes MILLION subscribers, Tim and Jenn Tracker are native Floridians who frequent the parks and take you along on all of their adventures! They've also done trip videos of their stays at Disneyland, Aulani, Toyko Disney Resort and Disney Cruise Line!
Tim and Jenn are currently learning how to navigate the parks with their infant son, Jackson! Rather than traveling outside of Florida, they have made the best of recent times by experiencing some incredible Disney staycations from the Polynesian bungalows, to the Saratoga Springs tree houses and the Wilderness Lodge cabins! Their almost daily videos take you along on their trips to the parks, resorts, Disney Springs and other attractions in the Orlando area! They'll keep you up-to-date on all the latest Disney happenings and make you feel like you're right there with them! This channel is super popular for good reason, and I have no doubt this family will put a smile on your face!
2. Michael Kay
A native north-easterner, Michael Kay was a Walt Disney World annual passholder making frequent trips to the parks, until he followed his dreams last year and moved to the Orlando area! Michael uploads TONS of videos on a plethora of topics, however, my favorite are his park and resort vlogs! Michael offers vlogs of his many trips to Walt Disney World as well as Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line! Michael's infectious positivity and lively spirit is sure to put you in a magical mood!
During recent months, Michael has also made the most out of recent times by experiencing staycations at several resorts including the Boardwalk resort, Contemporary resort and Saratoga Springs resort! Check out his older vlogs to see his perspective and tips on planning, packing and traveling to Walt Disney World! He also has vlogs of his past Disney trips traveling from the Northeast, as well as a wonderful trip to Aulani!
Max is a Disney parks aficionado living in Los Angeles! He is a Disneyland annual passholder and takes weekly trips to Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney! Max also makes frequent trips to Walt Disney World! .
Max is your go-to resource for all things Disneyland! From how to use the MaxPass system, to where to eat, where to relax and what rides to rope-drop, Max can show you it all! Other than his informative Disneyland videos, he also offers trip vlogs to Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris! Currently, with Disneyland closed for the foreseeable future, he has been making trips to Downtown Disney and hosting fun Disney trivia nights LIVE on YouTube every week! Max's extensive Disney knowledge and fun-loving personality makes his channel one of the best!
"Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow..." Yes, Nate's last name REALLY is Morrow! Making him the real-life Mr. Morrow! It would be a total shame if he WASN'T a Disney fan right?! As fate would have it, Nate is a Disney fanatic currently living in Orlando! A native of Pennsylvania, Nate moved to the Orlando area a few years ago and makes several trips to Walt Disney World's parks and resorts each week!
Some of my favorite videos that Nate offers are his super fun monorail bar crawls and skyliner bar crawls! Nate and his friends take you with them as they travel on either the monorail loop or skyliner route and stop at each of the resorts along the way! At each resort, they visit a bar or lounge and try some of their speciality drinks and cocktails. Recently, Nate has experienced many staycations on Disney property such as the Grand Floridian Resort, Beach Club resort and Animal Kingdom Lodge! His bubbly personality and up-beat attitude make him so fun and enjoyable to watch!
"Mooooooorning!" is the first thing you'll hear when watching one of Adam Hattan's videos! Adam is a British content creator who makes frequent trips to Walt Disney World and also has trip vlogs from Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line and Disneyland Paris! A former Disney cast member, Adam's unique insider perspective provides an abundance of Disney knowledge and pro tips! From snagging last minute fast passes, to where to get a great view of the fireworks, to his strategy for getting one of those coveted Rise of the Resistance boarding groups, Adam seems to know it all!
Often traveling with his best friend Gary, these two will have you quoting their inside jokes and one-liners in no time! They never fail to make me laugh out loud and are the pair that first got me hooked on Disney vlogs years ago! Adam and Gary were actually on a Walt Disney World vacation at the time it was closing due to COVID, so those vlogs are very unique and insightful! Adam always provides great suggestions and recommendations, and was the person who inspired me to become a travel agent!
If (really, when) these channels put you in the trip planning spirit (or give you some serious fomo), e-mail me to get started on your next Disney vacation, so you can join in on the fun!
Have a Magical Day!
