Just last week, the Slaughters took a trip down to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The adult to child ratio was kind of ridiculous as it was 6 adults to 2 children. Needless to say, most of us adults were as excited about Disney as the two children on the trip. I have to admit that I wasn’t one of those adults, at first. I knew Disney World was an awesome and magical place, but my concern was that the hassle of the logistics of the experience would outweigh what fun there was to be had. In particular, I was dreading parking, crowds, lines, tons of crying children, and more lines.
All you crazy Disney lovers out there will be happy to know that I was dead wrong. Disney has their junk together! Parking was a breeze; there was always a parking attendant to direct us exactly where to park. The whole 5 days I was at Disney, I waited in one long line. Thanks to the FastPass system, we were able to pick the rides we wanted to go on and basically get right on at our appointed time. The one line I did wait in was for the Test Track presented by Chevrolet at Epcot and it was well worth wait. Maybe it was the magic of Disney or maybe families are getting smart about the adult to kid ratio like the Slaughters, but I barely noticed any crying children. As far as crowds, only once did I feel overwhelmed by the amount of people in Magic Kingdom. Even after the late night fireworks show, when everyone was leaving the park at the same time, there was little to no waiting or hassle involved.

I’m truly impressed by my experience. We all had a blast, kids and adults.

Now to mind warp you back to the wonderful world of websites. My lesson from my trip, EXPERIENCE MATTERS. Do your potential customers have to jump through hoops and read through a ridiculous amount of content on your homepage to find what they are looking for? Is looking at your website an enjoyable experience or is it headache inducing?
