Do character meals for breakfast. It’s the same fun experience at a cheaper price than dinner!
Take a mid-day break for naps and resting in your hotel. This way you can be at the morning hours and the evening shows without the midday breakdowns! Plus the middle of the day is usually the hottest and the most crowded.
Get your dining reservations early! You can cancel up to the day before and they fill up quick!
If it’s super crowded in the Magic Kingdom (especially during parade times or fireworks) you can walk from one end of Main Street to the other through the stores. If you’re facing the castle, it’s the stores on your left side.
Getting there in the afternoon and don’t want to buy a full day ticket? Plan a meal at one of the hotels on the monorail and take a ride around! You can even stop at the different hotels and walk around their themed lobbies.”
Hotels take room requests! Go online and check where in the hotel you most want to be (near the lobby? closest to the pool?) and put in your request!
Take food and drink to the park! The grocery apps Garden grocer (https://www.gardengrocer.com/), Instacart, Amazon all can be delivered to your onsite hotel. It’s great to get some drinks and snacks to have for the parks.
There’s free Wifi in the parks- especially helpful for your battery when running the Disney app.
You can order a wake up call and a Disney character will call to wake you up. You can’t request which character but it’s often Mickey or Goofy.
The Memory Maker option is worth it. You can buy one for your entire group and all your pictures- on the roller coasters, in the parks- will upload instantly to your phone.
Quick serve restaurants- most of the quick serve restaurants now let you order on your app which will save you a ton of wait time!! You can order your meals and they’ll be waiting for you when you get there.
