A Few Tips for Saving Time
at Walt Disney World
You are going to want to get the most out of every second that you spend at Walt Disney World. Here are a few tips (Tips 1-5 out of 10) that will help you to do just that.
1. Have Fun!
It is all too easy to put pressure on yourself and your family to make the most of your time while at Walt Disney World. Don’t forget to have fun! Instead of worrying so much about maximizing your time, be ready to stray from your schedule. Stop and watch Segio at Epcot, get in that 55 minute line for a picture with the kids, wait for a character autograph, or buy another Mickey Ice Cream Bar. When you’re trying too hard to save time, you might not be enjoying the time that you’re saving. You’re at the happiest place on Earth, so enjoy it to the fullest…..even if it does take a little bit of extra time.
2. Use FastPass+
With FastPass+ you can skip a long line and cut way back on the amount of time that you will need to wait. Take advantage of it! You can make up to three FastPass+ reservations in advance. Make them for as early in the day as possible, and make sure you use all three when you’re at the park. You will then be able to make a fourth reservation. It may not be for one of the most popular rides, but it will still be one less line to wait in.
3. Arrive Before Rope Drop
In order to make the most of every moment of your vacation, you will want to hit as many rides and attractions as possible. The best way to do that is to arrive a little bit before the park of choice opens in the morning. The lines are shortest at the beginning of the day. You’ll spend less time waiting and more time having fun. Hit the popular attractions that you don’t have a FastPass+ for, since those lines will grow the fastest.
4. Make Dining Reservations
The table service restaurants at Walt Disney World range from casual to extravagant. A dining reservation is a must for any full service restaurant that you want to try. Don’t think that you will be able to walk up to a restaurant and be seated. It could happen, but that is extremely rare. You can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. If you realize that you aren’t going to use a reservation make sure that you cancel, or else your credit card will be charged.
5. Try Less Popular Rides
If you don’t like standing in long lines, you can still have a great time at Walt Disney World. Avoid the most popular attractions, and instead make a day out of the less popular ones. Download the My Disney Experience App, and keep an eye on Wait Times. Hit the attractions with the shortest waits. You just might find a new favorite.
